Weekend Wrap Up!

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...



I just wanted this week to be done. I feel like I say that every week… and if I don’t say it, I’m thinking it. The weeks can just be so monotonous, and that is my fault. You know what Dr. Phil says? Bored people are BORING.





I went to Planet Fitness bright dark and early to workout on the arc trainer. It wasn’t that chilly, but when I stepped out of my car, I smelled the cool air and immediately it reminded me of Christmas. I felt an instant yearning for the holiday season. If you are newish to my blog, you may not know how much I love Christmas. I do not mind if there are Christmas decorations out before Halloween. That is totally fine with me! Anyway, I am already very excited for the holiday season!

Work was long. I have nothing to say about work other than when I got in my car at the end of the day, I looked in the rearview mirror and noticed I had a big piece of chocolate from a protein bar stuck on my lip. So let's see, I ate the protein bar around 2:00 pm... that means it was there for an hour and forty-five minutes. 70 students and several adults saw me in that amount of time and no one mentioned the piece of chocolate? So embarrassing!


I did wear my sneaks again. You see, I'm so stylin'!

The best part of my day was when Paul made me dinner! I really was not in the mood to make it myself and just wanted to lay around. Paul to the rescue!




Chef Cooney!

Turkey burger, and 7 tortilla chips with melted cheese. Yes, I told him I wanted exactly 7 and he obliged. What a good husband!



Before I went to bed, I started rereading a Christopher Pike book. I have read his books so many times. I was obsessed with them in high school. Looking back, they are a little silly, but still entertaining to read as an adult!








I slept for 12.5 hours on Friday night so I figured I'd better make up for my sloth-ness by going for an awesome run. The weather was GORGEOUS- very warm. I went for an 8 miler (7:54 pace) and my foot felt better than yesterday. I am certain I do not have plantar fasciitis as it is still just a little tender on the side of my foot- not my plantar fascia. Good news!

On Saturday afternoon, we went to the famous Falmouth Goat Races! Yes, you heard that right. They RACE goats! I can't describe it adequately with words, so I will let the pictures do the talking...






Oh yeah, something horrible happened on Saturday. I picked up two cartons of this at the grocery store...


CINNAMON BUN ICE CREAM!!!!
AAAAAUGHH!!!!!!!!




When I woke up Sunday morning, I caught Jelly on my computer... he is obsessed.





Sunday was a GET. SHIT. DONE. day. I cleaned, grocery shopped, did all the wash, cooked food for the week... all that fun stuff! However, I did manage to do 3 extremely fun things...


1st Extremely Fun Thing - I went for another gorgeous run- 10 miles @ 8:00 pace on the dot!


2nd Extremely Fun Thing - I went for a walk with my dear friend Bree!


3rd Extremely Fun Thing - My niece, Ellie, turned 2, and the family celebrated with a birthday party. I was very excited to see my niece and very excited to see my family!






But of course, all the pictures I took were of Ellie!
Did you do anything fun this weekend?
Have you ever been to a goat race?
Do you ever reread books you read in high school?

  2. We ran the exact same milage this weekend. How adorable! Also, I really need to invest in some dresses to start wearing to work. I'm getting sick of my dress pants. I just feel all awkward in dresses because I never wear them. You look adorable!
