Hey everyone! Happy Monday! Hope you had a lovely Valentine’s Day Mine was glorious, and definitely a little different than last year’s when the pilot was deployed and I had 15 girlfriends over for a party
The pilot and I dropped off Viesa at the kennel and Bella at funny quote lady’s house, then got on the road to Jacksonville.
Of course, we stayed at our favorite resort: One Ocean (if you ever stay in Jacksonville, check it out… it’s amazing)
Check out the VIEW!
*Le sigh* I just want to live here.
The powder room:
After we checked in, we hit up the hotel gym (the pilot did abs and chest while I did 40 minutes on the elliptical) and then we got ready for dinner.
It feels nice to wear “real” clothes
My seksi date:
We had reservations for the 5-course Valentine’s Dinner at the hotel restaurant and oh my stars, it did not disappoint.
First we had a tomato and sage jelly with pesto to get our palates ready for the fiesta to come:
Love the little heart! So cute.
Bread (I had the wheatiest one in the basket) and champagne:
Corn pudding, fried oysters and onion:
Foie gras with a crouton-thingy (sorry for being so technical with my descriptions, haha):
(The pilot ate mine and I just had the crouton and garnish)
Champagne foam with mango sorbet and strawberries to cleanse the palate:
The main course: lobster, egg souffle, caviar and portobello mushroom
And dessert, chocolate and white chocolate ganache heart sandwich, strawberry foam and chocolate mousse
It was repulsive
Oh, and every single course was paired with wine.Yes, it was that kind of night. And yes, I had had dairy and white flour, which I usually only have every purple moon (not because I *can’t* but because I prefer whole grain and sans dairy when I have a choice)… well last night’s moon happened to be purple, so I rolled with and loved every single bite. It’s not very often that I get to have a swanky wanky dinner with my pilot
And if that weren’t enough, they brought little cookies with our bill:
Did I mention that I want to live here??
We went back up to the room and on our way we played a little game called “run ahead and strike a pose”
We’re really cool Hahaha.
We went swimming:
And out dancing… and it was a wonderful, lovely night
I’m off to Bikram yoga, then hitting up Whole Foods before we get back on the road to Valdizzy.
See ya later tonight!
Something to do: Winter Shape Up ladies (and dudes!), this week we’ll be repeating Week 1 of the challenge. Try to use heavier weights this week (if you’re able to- be smart), or a little higher intensity (think higher squat jumps, stronger burpees), than we did the first week. We have 2 weeks left- I hope you’re all seeing amazing results so far! Happy training
