Side By Side

Ben and I went on a walk this morning. I needed a rest day from running and he wasn’t too hung over from last night’s festivities so we headed toward my favorite place – Dunkin Donuts!IMG_5830

It’s just under 2 miles from his parents which makes for a great stroll Smile IMG_5823

Doesn’t this picture make it look like DD is Heavenly? Because it is. IMG_5827

All I wanted was an iced coffee, but I took a few bites of Ben’s flat bread egg sandwich for sustenance. IMG_5826

Random Relationship tip: I’ve heard talking while sitting, standing or walking side-by-side is good to get your partner to open up. This way he or she doesn’t feel confronted “head on” and it’s more casual and easy to talk.

I don’t remember where I read that, but I do love our long walks and talks Smile 

Last night we stopped at Ben’s friends house for some beverages. Since I knew we were going to be drinking I insisted we stop for food first. I got a Publix salad…IMG_5813

and some of the most amazing pita chips ever. I usually avoid Stacy’s Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips because I eat the whole bag in one sitting, but I just didn’t have the willpower last night. Ben described these as, “The largest piece of Cinnamon Toast Crunch I’ve ever seen.”IMG_5816

When we got to the house we were greeted with a counter full of alcohol. Don’t threaten me with a good time Winking smileIMG_5819

Ben’s brother, Jon, is quite the bartender…IMG_5821

Ben might have gotten “girly drink drunk” off of these almond joy tasting beverages. IMG_5818

And this hairless cat watched it all go down. IMG_5817

So, my day consisted of Orlando, Cinnamon Sugar Pita Chips, a hairless cat and alcohol that takes like a candy bar. Epic. 

It’s the last day of 2010. Here are my 2010 Highs and Lows.

    DD is heaven. i don’t even drink coffee anymore or eat donuts very often but if DD came to the west coast i would start up again. my uncle owns 2 in long island and told me there is some franchising law against it. so sad!

    eek the hairless cat is sorta freaky looking; and thanks for the heads up ont the pita chips. Cinnamon toast crunch cereal is like crack to be so I probably will never try those pita chips. ( and p.s. Ben is way cuter than his brother)
