I know I have a lot of catching up to do, with this blog and with reading and commenting on yours! That may take me all week at the rate I’m going, but I’ll start by letting you know what happened on Friday.
If you are a reader of Neenie’s blog then you’ll know that we met up for lunch 🙂
I was heading to Glasgow for the weekend and decided to stop off in the town that Neen works in, for lunch. We went to a little cafe called The Smithie that had the healthiest menu I think I’ve come across yet. Which is great considering it was hidden away in a back street of a small Scottish town!
I ordered a random salad bowl:
It was so good! I loved how there was fruit mixed in with everything else. It’s fair to say that I did not see the bottom of this bowl. Partly because I was too busy talking to eat 🙂
Neen ordered the Hummus:
I also took a photo of Neen’s nails, did you read her post on how to do a manicure? Well her nails showed that she is quite skilled!
I should point out that she’s wearing a wedding ring to keep her engagement ring from slipping off. She’s actually getting hitched in September. I was surprised at how pretty Neen is in real life- her photos do not do her justice, she’ll make a stunning bride.
We spent about an hour and a half getting to know each other, chatting about blogging and eating and exercising! It was perfect, I always feel like I can’t talk to my friends and family about things like healthy recipes, or nutritional tables, for fear of boring them silly! That’s one of the reasons I love blogging, and meeting a fellow blogger is fantastic 🙂
I can’t wait to meet up with Neen again.
The rest of Friday involved a stop at a shopping centre where I got a Strawberry Energy Smoothie from Zumo:
Then I was off to my brother’s flat where we munched on something special:
That’s my brother Jamie looking goofy with a mouthful of brownie! They were Avocado and Black Bean Brownies which were a lovely gift from Neen 🙂 They were so nice, I couldn’t tell they had avocado in them which was good as I’m not a fan. Jamie loved them and ate more than his share 😦 He studied catering in college for a while and likes baking, he wants the recipe. I’m sure Neen mentioned that she found it on another blog but I’m not sure which?
I shall be back tomorrow with my recap of the wedding I went to on Saturday. I hope you all had a great weekend! XOXO
