Olympic Year and Cupcakes

Happy Olympic Year everyone!

After I rang in the new year Olympic year I hit the road for The Mitten (Michigan) and Jtrain (Jules).

I don’t know about this sign, The Mitten will always be Great Lake, Great Times.

Jtrain and I went Mediterranean for dinner at Zaboon’s (possibly) where we split hummus…

and some incredible puffed pita bread

Jtrain had a bowl of Lentil soup and Fattoush salad

On J’s recommendation I went with a cup of lentil soup

The soup was really rich and “meaty”, totally rad!

I also ordered the Falafel plate.

Falafel’s are never a bad decision.

These ones were green inside! I ate 2.5 and took the rest home.

I had planned to bring red velvet cupcakes as a treat but the Cupcake Shop was sold out on New Years Eve, boo! Instead we made our own!

I was shocked at how cheap the mix and icing were compared to in Canada.

Action shot!

I played a very important Jaques of All Trades role in the production by photographing and refilling wine glasses

I made a woopie pie because I’m a nerd.

We kicked off this morning right by hitting the gym near J’s house.

IMG_8484It was “early” but we were eager to sweat!

I had a fabulous 2.5mile run and feel AMAZING! Thanks for taking me as your guest J!!

Now we’re off to meet up with some other friends and do some shopping, eating and perhaps something involving skating! Peace OUT!
