Shouldn't all weekends be 3 days??

This weekend involved lots of fun:

  • Early morning runs, including my best run ever! I don't know if it was the strength training I did during the week, my new running outfits, or the new electro house mixes hubby put on my iPod. Whatever it was, I nailed 5.25 miles and felt SOOO good about it!
  • Officially experiencing the runner's high and setting the goal to run a marathon before I turn 30
  • Finishing this book...
  • And starting this one...

  • A lovely morning at church
  • Meeting up with some of hubby's friends for Thai (I had my favorite...pad thai with shrimp)
  • Watching the SEC championship game with good friends and cheering LSU on to victory

  • Starting a new sewing project (I promise photos are to come of all the projects I've been working on! The rainy weather just has not inspired me to dress up and take photos.)
  • Shopping sprees at JoAnn's and Sports Authority (I might have even visited these stores two or three times over the weekend)

  • Spotting a flying squirrel and lots of bunny rabbits on our 6AM Sunday run
  • Pretending that Sonic chili cheese tots are actually good for me

My weekend did NOT include any of the following:

  • cleaning
  • school work
  • grocery shopping for the week
  • giving Heaven a bath
As a result, this week is going to be ROUGH. Thank goodness the weekend will be here again soon!

It sounds like you had a wonderful and relaxing weekend! Good for you :) The run sounds like it was great. I also love Pad Thai!

I worked so hard last week on projects at the office and doing housework. It felt good to relax for the long weekend.

I can't wait to see your sewing projects!
