Well my friends, it has been quite awhile since I have done a Weekend Wrap Up! The thing is, with it being summer, all the days sort of run together, and quite often, we don't do anything super exciting on the weekends. But I want to get back on the Weekend Wrap Up wagon because I think it is a great way for me to share a little of what is going on in my world right now.
Friday started bright and early because we had to be in Baltimore by 9:00 am for Paul to take some more tests. This was an outpatient thing, so we didn't have to stay overnight. Thank goodness. We just got home on Tuesday from an entire week in the hospital, so we were really not in the mood to go back so soon.
Paul's tests were supposed to take 4-6 hours, so I had to find something to do to kill time. What I ended up doing is driving up to Towson to check out Trader Joe's. This was my very first trip to the store!
The verdict: I was not super impressed. It's not that I didn't like the store. There was nothing wrong with it. In fact, they had some really good prices on cheese, I got some quinoa for pretty cheap and I also got Paul some cookie butter and me some cat cookies... because, duh, CAT COOKIES!
Then I went to a huge mall to kill time. I ended up at H&M, which was fun because I don't have those near me. I got a really cute skirt for $12.
When Paul was finally done with his tests, we went to Druid Hill Park in Baltimore for a disc golf/running date. By now, it was 3:00 pm and we were both really tired, so we sort of phoned in our workouts.
When we got home, the kitties were so happy to see us! There is seriously no place like home.
Saturday was a wonderful day to catch up on sleep! I really didn't do a whole lot that morning besides putz around the house and eventually go to the gym to lift.
Later that night, we went to Bob and Rachel's house for an Amerimirth Party... which is basically just a party celebrating America! We're silly, I know. Bob made an awesome dinner and we played CAH.
Bob cooked up BBQ chicken, cat fish, brussel sprouts, and bread

Unfortunately, the game was over before I could use these two!
Did I tell you that Jelly has been OBSESSED with my lap top? It all started when he saw this one screen saver I have. First he was obsessed with the screen saver, but now he's just obsessed with my lap top in general... I got some Sunday morning shots of me and my little baber boy...

My plan for Sunday's workout was Chest/Shoulders/Tri and let the legs rest. I got out some of the weights I have at home and did some lifting while I watched The View. It's not often I get to do that!
You all know the drill. You put down towels or any exercise equipment at all
and the kitties and the doggies come a-runnin'!
That afternoon, I went on a lovely walk with my friend Bree. Then I went to visit my mom and dad while they were baby-sitting my niece. It was nice to not only spend some of my Sunday with my friend, but also my family!
When I got home, I kicked back and relaxed on the back porch with a glass of scotch. I just sat and listened to the rain for awhile. It sure had turned into a dreary day!
I hope your weekend was lovely!
Do you like Trader Joe's?
Are your pets obsessed with something?
