Victory Lap

Jumping for Joy (and also to work off calories) Song of the Day: "Winner" by Jamie Foxx ft. Justin Timberlake and TI (check it out on or Rock With Us tab)

Yes, people...you read that right. We finally got our reward for completing NaNoWriMo on Saturday. We indulged ourselves, as promised, in the deliciousness of one of the best burger joints EV-AH!

Yep, Five Guys. All we had to do whenever we were stuck on our NaNo WIPs was think about ordering our burger and fries in the end. I know what you're thinking: Ok, why are you telling us about this...without giving us specifics?

So, here it goes. We weathered the long line of others who couldn't wait to get their hands on the illustrious brown bags and aluminum wrapped burgers, and ordered the two items we'd been looking forward to for months:

Bacon Cheeseburger (pickles on mine, fried onions on Pam's).


Regular cajun style French Fries, which next time we'll go with the Five Guys style fries-our mouths were on fire!
If you have a Five Guys near you, Go. Get. Some. Food. NOW! But in the meantime, tell us what your victory lap was for completing NaNoWriMo? Do you ever reward yourself when you complete a first draft??

Way to go on winning NaNo - and that burger sounds delicious. Unfortunately, we don't have Five Guys around these parts but I'm all for rewards for hitting a milestone :)

With each new first draft and/or final draft, I buy myself a bottle of my favorite wine. :) I definitely believe in rewarding yourself!

Congrats on having the burgers. I think there's one by me and I think I've been there. I actually have never rewarded myself for completing a first draft and haven't done it for NaNo yet. Maybe should I work on that?

From the looks of the photos I need to find one of those places NOW! (I'm sure I have non locally). I didn't reward myself after. I sort of indulged in fast food and junk food in the midst of NaNo. You know...to keep me going?

I loved Five Guys until they opened one up near me - then I overloaded on it, lol. ;P
