I haven't been doing as good with eating at new restaurants as I had hoped, but we have made a few appearances at some new places. One was the Copper Iris in downtown Jackson. We went for Leslie's birthday, and let me just go ahead and have a side note here that every time we try a new place, especially to celebrate a birthday, it always turns into an hour and half long ordeal. We go into the Copper Iris, not another soul there except the workers. We figured that's either a good thing, we'll get our food fast, or a not so good thing, no one eats here. We order our food, they were very nice and gave Leslie a free treat for her birthday. However, after about 30 minutes of waiting to get our food we were getting a little antsy. We finally do get our food, which seeing as how we were the only ones there it seemed to take a while, but the food was really good. I ordered the steak sandwich, which they replaced the steak with roast beef, not thinking a girl would notice I suppose. But nonetheless it was very good. Leslie and I did have the task of once again having to get our food to go and eating in our office. I think we should make a change in the 1 hour lunch break, ha. This place does catering as well, which I assume is how they maintain their business from what we experienced it's not from the lunch crowd. We probably won't be going to eat during our lunch hour, however, I would recommend calling ahead of time and picking the food up. The food was very good so it would be worth it to try it out!
Parlor Market is a really neat place to eat in downtown Jackson. I had never been there so Leslie, Dana, Bethany, and I went to try it out at lunch one day. The environment is very cool, the staff was attentive, and the food was good. I would like to go back and try their dinner menu. I think this would be a good date place. It has a cozy atmosphere. The lunch menu was a little bit more expensive than what I would typically like to spend on lunch, but every once in a while it's nice to splurge. Leslie and I shared the pimento cheese appetizer, the chicken blt sandwich and a dessert. Everything was good and even for sharing was a good amount of food. If you get a chance, definitely try out Parlor Market.
|Fun lunch dates!|

WARRIOR DASH!!!!! We did it!
April 21, 2011- Warrior Dash. If you are unfamiliar with Warrior Dash, then go now and check out the website.....www.warriordash.com. It is awesome! 3+ mile run with 14 obstacles. And when I say run, I mean uphill, in the mud, through water....so yes, mine ended up being more of a run, walk, run, walk, slide through the mud, try and run and repeat. Ha. Obstacles were awesome. Just to describe a few....you had a rock wall to master and then had to slide down a pole, 10+ foot wall you had to climb with a rope and then climb down the back, jump in the water and climb over logs, army crawl in the mud under barbed wire, and jump over fire......yes, those are just a few. I did this with 5 other girls and we had a blast. It is great to be able to say, yes, I did that! The obstacles were a thrill to conquer, now if only they would take out the running it would be better. I am not a runner so that was the least fun part for me. But the other girls were great and waited on me when needed and we finished in 1 hour and 6 minutes. Now we have a higher goal for next year!
