A few weekends ago, Adam and I were in Mandarin dropping his iPhone off to be fixed and noticed the new Cabana Grill on San Jose. We’re both big fans of Mexican food so we were excited to check it out, but unfortunately we’d just finished lunch and we were stuffed. I hate when that happens! One of my favorite things to do is try out new restaurants!
I was so bummed last year that I didn’t get to participate in the March to Get Screened 5K, but Braden had his first t-ball game and there was no way I was missing it! The race directors were kind enough to reach out and offer me a few free entries to give away again this year, so if you’re interested in running it, you can enter below!
The Color in Motion 5K is coming to Jacksonville!! I’m bummed that I won’t be able to attend, but my loss is your gain! The Color in Motion 5K team reached out to me and they want to give TWO of my readers a free entry into their Jacksonville race on November 8th! Entering to win is super simple, just use the rafflecopter below!
A few weeks ago, I was invited to a meet and greet at a new Tropical Smoothie Cafe location with the franchise owner and CEO Mike Rotondo. If you haven’t been to a Tropical Smoothie Cafe (it’s okay, I hadn’t!) lately, I suggest you stop in soon! Their big focus is inspiring healthy lifestyles through their better-for-you food and smoothies that combine flavor and nutrition. As more consumers are embracing healthy eating habits and fruits and vegetables are becoming central to their diets, Tropical Smoothie Café’s strong focus on healthy menu innovation using fresh fruit and vegetables could not be more relevant. They’ve been working on revamping the restaurants to make them more of a place where you want to stay, relax, and grab a bite to eat. They’re not just smoothies and they are doing some really great things with their menu!
If you’re like me, there’s a good chance that you’ve never heard of Earth Fare. I didn’t even know that they were coming to Jacksonville until I received an email asking if I’d like to come in and take a sneak peek at their store. After checking out their website, I was eager to head over and see what they had to offer! Actually, a better way to look at it is what they do NOT offer:
First, I want to wish you a Happy National Running Day! Even though I haven’t been running much lately, I love being a part of the community. I’m sure my husband will agree, I’m a much happier person when running is a normal part of my routine! I run to help manage stress, to stay healthy, to become stronger, for my family, for me, and mostly to save my sanity. I’m not sure that I’ll have the chance to log any miles today – it’s a CRAZY day in the Smith house – but I hope you’re able to run a few for me!
How’s that for a lot crammed into one blog post?!
