Well the Crossfit Games Open is over- I've talked about this before but just in case you missed it = ) For 5 weeks Crossfit posted a workout on Wednesday night to do. If you registered for the Open then you had to do this workout before Sunday evening and post your time or reps on the national website. You're competing with people EVERYWHERE and hoping to make a spot at Regionals in Chicago- now this was not my plan to make it to Chicago! I knew there was no chance but it's a great way to see where you are. I'm just happy I made it through all the workouts and wasn't disqualified because I couldn't do any of them. I got in the top 11,000 out of 20,000 worldwide- I'll take it ha, and I'm glad it's over- but it was so much fun competing with everyone and watching them compete each week. These workouts definitely tested your abilities.

Andrew and I went and tried Greenhouse Grill this past week. It was both our first time and it was DELICIOUS!!!
Andrew got the Fish Tacos
I got the Mediterranean Glazed Chicken with Asparagus and Sweet Potato Patties (must get sweet potato patties!!!)
My mom came into town this weekend and I introduced her to Greenhouse for some brunch.
Mom got this- Veggie pesto omlet with cheese grits
I got crab cake benedict with hash- if you know me you're thinking umm...I didn't think you liked seafood- but these crab cakes are SOOOOO goood!!!! Guess I'm just picky what seafood I like or Andrew has rubbed off on me
I also took my mom to The Heirloom in downtown Rogers I mentioned last blog. Every week they change their menu- mom and I both got the Buttermilk Chicken with root veggies- again a yummy meal
I read the Hunger Games series and Saturday night went to see it with mom and friends. It was good, but I did love the books way better! They had so much more detail, which I know they can put it all in the movie. I honestly don't know if I would've liked it though if I hadn't of read the books.
I have so many books on my list to read but I'm currently reading "Heaven is for Real" and it is amazing! I definitely recommend.
Have a great week
