This weekend was pretty much perfect as a last hoorah before getting back into the swing of things.
On Saturday, after not one, but two rounds of Shaun T's new DVD T25, boyfriend and I headed down to his mom's house to clean out his old room. We played with his grandma's mini horse for a couple of minutes before we got started. Yes. You know you're dating a country boy when there's a horse mowing the lawn.
It was surprisingly fun going through his room and finding love letters from old high school girlfriends an his journals that he used to write in. I also found his old glasses. I put them on and instantly looked 79-years-old. Finally, I look my age.
I also found some incredibly heavy weights and got in another good workout....
Can you even see them?? After we finished there, we went to Art's Alive because it was the first Saturday of the month and that's what we always do. We met my sister and the babes for Indian food and belly dancing again. I finished the night knitting with my BFF at her house.
This morning, I thought I was being clever and packed my stuff for my long run so I could go straight to my dad's.
Turns out, I brought the wrong pants. Long pants in 60 degree weather? No thanks. I also forgot socks. I obviously deserve the runner of the year award. Luckily I had a delicious brunch to make me forget about running for awhile.
When I finally got the correct gear for my run and drove to my dad's, it was already almost 4. I was chasing the sun the entire time. I made it 8 miles before getting on the treadmill because it was getting too dark for me to be out alone.
During my 8 miles, I was honked at 7 times, twice by the same driver that passed by me again. Please tell me what the point of honking at a runner is besides to scare the crap out of them? I was incredibly close to flipping the driver that honked twice off. But, I'm trying to get a professional job, which means I need to be professional all of the time. I finished my run with 4 much slower miles on the 'mill.
I'm also a little obsessed with my new thick headband that I bought at TJ Maxx.
I helped Dad cook dinner by taking sneaky photos of him.
He made us the most delicious comfort food.
I followed it up, of course, with my bowl of whipped cream.
Now I'm going to settle in and watch some Scandal before heading to sleep to get a good night's rest before school tomorrow.
How was your weekend?
