Happy Saturday every one! I can’t even remember the last time I had a chance to do a weekend post. I hope you are all as excited as I am. Today has been AMAZING. I decided to go out on walk on my favorite running path: The Mt. Vernon Trail.The paths are always swarming with runners, walkers, and bikers. I semi wanted to carry a sign that said “I am a runner but I just had ACL surgery 5 1/2 weeks ago, don’t judge me for walking.” but instead I just hummed to the music I was listening to, soaked up some sun, and enjoyed the people watching.
I received two air kisses from shirtless men on bikes and one head nod and a “whatsup” from another shirtless suitor on roller blades. Brennan better watch out. I set out to cover 4 miles but once I got started I knew I would do 5 because I hate the 4 mile distance. For me at least 3 miles is an uber easy run and one of my favs, 4 miles is just a 1/2 mile shy at the turn around point of being 5 miles, which is my favorite, “longer short run”. You know what I mean right? So anyways, 5 miles later and I was the happiest chum in all the land.
Don’t mind my arm stubble, I haven’t shaved in a few weeks. For those of you who don’t have gorrilla arms you are lucky. It is one of the curses that comes with my luxuriously brown skin. You win some and lose some right? As you can see I was SO EXCITED about this that I just couldn’t stop taking pictures.Adorable right? Seeing as I am feeling all sorts of awesome / athletic I am relaxing for a little then heading to the pool to swim some laps / tan. Brenners is out playing golf all day and ALL of my gfs are out of town (how dare they do this to me in the same weekend) so I am flying solo today, I am actually really enjoying the me time. Some other fun things that happened this week was my GF and her 10 week old baby Jackson came for dinner on Thursday!
You can tell they are super cool young parents because they let their son rock a stache. He was SO well behaved and I was hanging on to him for a very long time. My arms felt like they were going to fall off after feeding him though so he had to go back to the carrying seat. All the cats were fascinated by the tiny little man in the recliner.Seeing as I had finished all my energy bites I made a new batch to share with Jen. This batch featured coconut and peanut spread.I also added in some pretzels and smushed it out into a pie pan and cut up into bars. They were a HUGE hit and I sent Jen home with most of them and brought so to work.For dinner we had fresh veggies out of Jen’s garden and lemon and rosemary chicken / quinoa and zucchini. The salad was featuring the TJ Orange Muscat Champagne Vinegar and was amazinggg. Fresh picked cherry tomatoes are the best thing ever.And finally here are some random pictures I have on my iPhone that I want to share but they have no connection to one another. Have a great weekend every one, I am off to the pool! What are you doing this weekend?
