Five Things Friday Niagara Falls Style

It's time for....

from my recent trip to Niagara Falls! (How has it already been a week since I was there??)
Linking up with Clare today!

Things I did: (besides run a race, which you can read about here)
1. I drove the 8 hours to Canada, and rather than do it all in one day, I split it up into 2. So the first night I stayed in Ohio. Before heading to Michelle's on Friday, I had a few hours to waste, so I decided to do something I've never done before... go to the movies by myself. I loved it, and will definitely do it again. Besides, staring into Bradley Cooper's eyes for a couple hours pretty much makes me forget everything else.
2. The first thing we did is go for a run. Of course!

3. Saturday we went to the Falls. Beyond amazing. I can't wait to go back someday and do all the touristy things and spend hours there. It was mesmerizing.

4. Took my first Aqua Fit class. Yes, we were the youngest in the class. :)

5. Had fun with these ladies! (Trying to fit 4 people in a selfie is harder than it looks)

Things I ate:

1. I wanted to try something different while I was in OH, so I had Chipotle for the VERY FIRST TIME!
The chicken salad was TDF. I have been craving another one ever since.
2. All you can eat sushi restaurant. I didn't even know such a place existed. It was pretty much heaven.

3. Delicious fruit and granola parfait.
4. Another first- lobster bisque. WOW.
 5. Saved the best for last. Michelle's hubby made us his famous pizza, after our race. Like, he doesn't make it for anyone except his family because then we all would want the recipe. It is that good. I felt pretty special.
Can you believe, with all the good (unhealthy) eating I did, I actually lost 1 lb. last week? I don't know how!

Ever been to the movies by yourself?
Who else has taken an Aqua Fit class?



  1. I'll go to the movies by myself all the time. If people are busy or don't want to see the movie, I'll still go.

    1. I'll definitely be doing it alone again, I guess it's just getting through the 'first time'!

  2. I've never been "brave" enough to go to the movies by myself. But now that so much of my life is so busy, it sounds like a great "getaway." As many times as I have been to the Falls, I have never done the Maid of the Mist. I heard its a lot of fun!

    1. It really is a great getaway. And I realized it didn't take as much bravery as I thought it would!

  3. How was the aqua fit class? Was it hard/easy?
    That fruit/granola parfait is CRAZY!!!!!
    Look at how small that boat looks in the bottom of the falls... makes me think of "The Office" :)

  4. Niagara Falls is so amazing! I've been to both the Canadian side and American side. They're both amazing but I prefer Canada! There's so much to do there and the views are incredible. So glad you got to try Chipotle out- it's my fave and I eat there way too much :)

    1. Everyone says the Canadian side is better. It was gorgeous! I have a feeling Chipotle will be a regular from now on!

  5. It looks stunning! I don't think I have ever been to Chipotle either. Good on you for trying so many new things!

  6. Oh ya, I treat myself to a movie alone any time I'm in the mood. After the movie starts its like who cares who is alone:) In fact I was thinking about treating myself to a movie tomorrow:)
    Love your trip pictures, so fun! My parents were also just up by Niagara Falls, and I am just so jealous I definitely need to make it there one day, so beautiful!
