A Monumental Weekend

I'm just going to come right out and say it.

I ate SUSHI this weekend.
For the first time in my short life.

I know, it's a lot to take in.....Surprisingly, I liked it even though I've always said I'd never eat it.J and I grabbed dinner at a hibachi grill with his cousin and her husband Saturday night and they were determined to order sushi and have me try it and fall in love.

Doesn't that girl look THRILLED to be there?! ;)

There's the culprit.

No turning back now. And if you think I look scared.... it's because I was.

I definitely didn't fall in LOVE, but it honestly was pretty good. The sushi was cooked crab with avacado and cream cheese (I think).

So other than that life-changing event, we had a really fun weekend. Low-key movie night at home on Friday. Saturday we got to visit with my parents and enjoyed lunch with them. Plus we stopped at the AWESOME outlet malls on the way home.

I snagged these two AWESOME workout shirts from Under Armour's clearance rack. I'm trying to stick with my running and what better motivation than a couple new clothing items? ;)

That's all for now-- Happy Monday!


  1. YUM! I love sushi! :) And those shirts are super cute!

  2. Yay for trying sushi! I'm a big fan and it's definitely an acquired taste :) Oh and I LOVE those new running shirts! Happy Monday!

  3. We love those outlets! They are dangerous though. Glad you didn't hate sushi...I tried it for the first time about a year ago and I will admit I am in love.

  4. i love sushi, but i am VERY picky with it.

  5. OH MY GOSH.
