Yup, I've got a case of the Monday blues. It tends to happen when that 4:50am alarm goes off. But I'm happy to say it usually quickly disappears once I get into the swing of things.
I am a routine girl afterall ;-)
This weekend was pretty dang good to us - busy but not overally busy...just how I like my weekends. Friday night was low key - as usual in our house. By the time Friday rolls around I'm usually too beat to do much of anything. This past Friday was no exception - I think I made it to 9:30 before zonking out on the couch...you'd think I was 61 instead of 31!!!
Saturday was just a typical day for us - we worked out in the morning, and spent the afternoon cleaning and doing things around the house. Then some friends of our friends invited us over at the last minute for dinner so we got to spend the evening with them and their super adorable kids. We had so much fun playing with these 2 munchkins. And the carb load feast of homemade mac 'n' cheese, bread, and fruit was EXACTLY what I needed for the next day's race. Nikki - I expect that dinner EVERY time before I have a big race :)
Sunday's alarm went off bright and early at 6am for my 4th half marathon. Here's me (in the pink top on the left) almost at the finish line...I'll do a full recap either tomorrow or Wednesday. I'm happy to report the race went WAY better than expected so I'm actually looking forward to doing my first race recap.
After the race, I took a nice long nap...it was pure heaven. I finally peeled myself off the couch and we were off to grocery shop. As I mentioned here I gave the hubs a date a month as part of his Christmas gift. Unfortunately, we didn't do March's in March so on Sunday we did March's date and April's. April's date was game night and we had SO much fun!! On Saturday, our friends had bought Super Mario Bros for their Wii and we had played that for a while there, so we followed suit so we could play it for date night. I LOVED that game growing up and I still love it!! I think it's going to be my new addiction (thank goodness I don't know how to turn the Wii on myself other I'd probably do nothing but play Mario Bros allll night....every night!!) We also played Charades from an app the hubs downloaded to my iPad. I guess Ellen plays it on her show so that's where he got the idea from (when he's watched the Ellen Show I dunno...LOL) It was a blast!!!!!! Our March date was to go to Target and we had a half an hour to buy the other person something for $5. This was SO hard!!!! I got the hubs a new pillow and some Easter candy that was on sale. He did good (as usual!) and got me some crazy straws, a pair of tweezers that I can keep in my get-ready area (because I'm constantly stealing the ones from the bathroom!), a pair of socks, and a votive candle that smells AMAZING!!!!!!! It was so much fun and we thoroughly enjoyed our dates!
And what better way to end the weekend than by face timing with your nephew....how can you not love this face?!?!? <3
