We did it! We found the motivation to leave the couch and give True Detective a break. It was too nice out to waste the day inside. Joe, Nick, and I got ready and headed out to grab brunch. We couldn’t decide on where to eat. It was one of those “where do you wanna go?” “I don’t care, where do you wanna go?” Finally, we drove by Cafe Monte, and boom! We knew where we were eating. That should never be a struggle in Charlotte. There are so many good places to eat, especially for brunch.
The line was pretty long, but that was for inside seating. I couldn’t understand why people wouldn’t want to sit outside on a gorgeous Sunday? It was in the 80’s and it felt like Fall! We got in right away. You guys will also be proud of me. I’ve cut my coffee down to 1-2 cups a day. I’ve been drinking tons of water instead. I actually feel more energetic without having all the coffee. Let’s see if this can last in the winter.
I ordered their French country breakfast. It came with fresh fruit, multigrain toast, bacon, eggs, and a potato. Their food is always delicious. I’m excited for their butternut squash soup and kale salad this fall! It’s a must.
After breakfast, we headed to a golf shop. I’ve been in the market for a new set of clubs. I worked with a golf pro and tested out a couple. He said I clocked in around 85 to 90mph on my swing and was impressed. That made me feel good because I’ve been really working hard on my golf game. My other clubs allowed me to max out at 210 yard drives, but he said the new Cobra club could probably put me 30 yards further….but WE’LL SEE….
I did end up getting all new Irons and a new driver. I’m itching to golf again today because I love my new driver so much. My old driver had too much flex which caused a bit of inconsistency.
I’m really excited about my new vintage floral golf bag. The guy looked at me like I was nuts when I said I wanted that one over the purple and green Ping bag.

Nick gave me some of his Sparks energy drink from his advocare program to try out and it was pretty good. It tasted like sunny delight Orange Juice. He’s been doing the 24 day challenge with Advocare for ten days and he’s already lost 13 lbs. I may order some of the products on the site because I love their fiber drinks, the energy drinks, and the post workout recovery supplements. Have any of you done the Advocare products or 24 day challenge? I’d love to get your insights.
I couldn’t have asked for a better day. We talked about what we were going to do for our one year, and decided to just do something we loved rather than getting all dressed up and going to dinner. We have more fun golfing together and being outside. I’m not into all the over-saturated lovey-dovey stuff. Don’t get me wrong, I like romantic dinners, and cards on Valentines day, but in reality, I’d rather be out on a golf course.
We stopped at Earthfare on the way home for dinner. I got their salad bar and a Suja drink. We went back to watching True Detective and I fell asleep at 9:30!
Old Lady status.
And before you get the urge to leave me more nasty comments…just remember…
