Starting off on the right foot…

by agirlandhermutt on November 2, 2010

Yesterday I started off the week AND the month of November with a good ol’ Martini Monday! The girls and I headed over to Russell House Tavern in Harvard Square.

We started off with a few drinks. I went for a little flash back to my time in London with the “Battle of Trafalgar”.

Mmm, mmm good.

While I was perusing the menu looking for my dinnah I noticed this little tidbit about the restaurant.

I love that they try to stay as local as possible. Way to support your community RHT!

I went for a “Short Dirty Ceasar Salad”.  Get a load of all that cheese! I only ate about half and saved the rest for later.

My main meal was a pizza with figs, a soft cheese, and crispy basil. Deeeelllliiicious! Half went home for me to be chowed down for lunch the next day.

On another note….

I’m taking a que from Beth over at Beth’s Journey and Gracie over at Girl Meets Life and I’m making some goals for November. If you have been around for a bit, you know that I LOVE lists and goals. My 30 While 30 list is a perfect example. We only have 2 more months in the year and I’m going to make them count and also help myself stay sane during the holiday months!


1. Get Christmas cards together. This is one of my 30 While 30 goals and I’m determined to get this done early AND right. In previous years my cards have ranged anywhere from handmade (AW-SOME!) to non existent. This year I want to take the time to pick cards that I love for those that I love who are miles away. I’m not a card for every kid in the neighborhood type of person, but I do love to let my peeps across the miles know that I’m thinking of them. 🙂

2. Sign up for a cooking class. This is another from the 30 While 30 list. I am thinking a pasta making class is in the cards. The Scientist has agreed that this sounds like fun so I’m running with it!

3. Gym 3x/week. I’ve been SUPAH busy these past few weeks and my gym visiting has been sporadic. I want to make a schedule and stick to it. I always do better that way. When will I learn?! OH YEAH! RIGHT NOW!

4. Keep up with my laundry. As strange as this sounds, I have a serious laundry issue happening in my life. I’m not sure why I’ve always struggled with this problem. Possibly a phobia? My goal is to conquer it for the month. Maybe it will become a habit? At least I will have clean tights on a regular basis.

5. Drink 3 of big ol’ bottles of water a day. I used to drink TONS of water at work, but then I broke my cute little bottle. I’ve been getting by with my glass, but this is NOT the most appropriate thing to be carrying around all day.

I’ve replaced it with a fun new bottle and I’m ready to go!

Small, but obtainable goals. I know for a fact that setting a goal will work for me and since I have you guys to answer to it will be even bettah!

Do you make goals? Any goals for your November?

What is this new trend of figs on pizza?? I’m starting to feel like I’m missing out over here! I’ve never tried such a combo before but I hear amazing things about it!!!
