After getting up (crucial first step) and having a yummy breakfast of eggs over medium (seriously one the the reasons I love Brian is his ability to make eggs over medium - they are so delicious, but intimidating to make) and english muffins, we packed up and headed to Starbucks for a little QT. It's no secret that giving me coffee is my love language - coffee is the fuel in my love tank.
We set up our computers and both spent some time with God. I'm studying Isaiah through Bible Study Fellowship and Brian is reading through the gospels - he's on Luke, I think. Then Brian worked on a blogpost for his blog and I surfed. Brian looks studious:
After some time at the 'Bucks, we moved on to our second location, the Bearden Greenway. This is one of my favorite locations to walk. It's beautiful and it connects to other greenways, so I can walk as long as I want. Our goal on Tuesday was to do just over 5 miles. There's a park at the 2.7 mile marker which makes for a convenient turn around point. What we didn't factor in was the crazy torrential, flooding, Noah-in-the-arc type rain we'd had the night before. Even though the greenway is paved our walking conditions looked like this:

We turned back towards the car making a slight detour up a hill:
and saw my favorite sign of spring:
|not a good picture, i know. They were still droopy from the rain|
and we've already talked about my lack of photography skills.
Before our date was over, we went to Earthfare for lunch. I ate an ENORMOUS salad and Brian had a sandwich that was all kinds of delicious. Here's a gratuitous pic of me on the trail:

totally rocked these tights at Starbucks and Earthfare.
