Today was an all-around GOOD Saturday! :mrgreen:

Workout

After breakfast and apartment hunting, I hit the gym for a quickie 30-minute run on the treadmill. I didn’t have much time to exercise this afternoon, so I made sure to push myself for the entire duration. So, by the end of 30 minutes, I was winded and completely drenched in sweat. It was awesome! 😀 I covered 3.35 miles in 30 minutes.

Dog Park

Once I finished my sweaty run, I showered-up, dressed, and headed to the park with Mal and Murphy to meet Dave, Marie, and their dogs for some puppy playtime.

The dogs had a blast running around at the park! 😀

Mal and Murphy played “chase” at the park for a good 20 minutes!

Snack

We left the park around Happy Hour time, so we cracked-open a bottle of Bourbon County Stout when we arrived at Dave and Marie’s house. I’m not a huge dark beer fan, but this one is delicious! It’s dark and dense with thick foam and flavors of chocolate, vanilla, and caramel. It’s a great sipping beer.

I enjoyed a small pour and savored it slowly.

I also munched on a few chips and dip while chatting in the kitchen with my husband and our friends.

Dinner

For dinner tonight, the four of us decided to make chili. Mmm! 🙂

We also baked some cornbread to have with the meal.

After dinner, we sat around and played Cribbage like the old folks that we are– actually, it’s a really fun game!

Murphy passed out from exhaustion after some serious playing at the park.

Like all good meals, tonight’s ended with a yummy dessert: Cookie Brownie Bars!

Brownie + cookie = best of both worlds! :mrgreen:

Of course, I just had to have one of these delectable treats, but I stopped myself before I got carried away. Usually, I’d eat a second or third bar, but just one did the trick tonight.

Heading to bed soon and sleeping LATE tomorrow morning!
