The coolest thing happened today. The Best Western we’re staying at in B’ham let us check in super early and then gave us free passes to the local athletic club! I got a great workout in right after presentations (35 minutes spin bike and lots of arms/abs exercises). The sister and I spent some of the afternoon exploring the downtown scene and had a fabulous lunch at La Fiamma Wood Fire Pizza. Check out this gorgeous salad (with tomato vinaigrette dressing) and tomato soup with balsamic!
I couldn’t resist trying the ice cream at Mallard’s, a local foodie craze… I sampled an apricot-cayenne sorbet, but settled on this coconut ice sorbet with chocolate and almonds. We will def be going back for more tomorrow before we leave.
Currently sis is hot-tubbing while I blog, work and finish my homework. Tonight we’re attending an Earth Day BBQ at Boundary Bay Brewing with my coworker Andee!
