Another summer weekend is in the books and, boy, it was a great one!
Friday night was pretty low-key. Mal went out with some friends, so after I put Quinn to bed, I whipped up a quick dinner for myself (Sweet & Sour Chicken with broccoli).
And spent the rest of the evening watching Real Housewives of New York City and shopping online. (I also enjoyed a dark chocolate Mighty Muffin and some lemonade.)
I spent nearly two hours on thredUP, but I scored some awesome stuff.
Bright and early on Saturday morning, I met my friend Marisa for 7 miles, which was my long run for the week. Half marathon training has officially begun!
Post-run meal: Breakfast potatoes + avocado + eggs + ketchup + Sriracha.
Quinn went down for his morning nap shortly after that, so Mal and I tagged teamed house projects. (Our house is still in shambles, but it’s slowly coming along.)
When Quinn woke up from his nap, he liked what he saw!
After that, we headed to a surprise birthday party, where I enjoyed a couple of Dark ‘N Stormys from a can, which were actually quite tasty over ice.
Sunday morning started with Mal’s amazing, cake-like pancakes with fresh blueberries.
After breakfast, we drove to Funny Farm, so I grabbed a Samoa iced coffee (it tasted like the Girl Scout cookies!) at Gourmet Donuts. It was spectacular.
That afternoon, I enjoyed a massage at Muscle Medics, where I met a therapy dog, who was certified by the same organization as Murphy. She even wore a similar jacket. And, of course, we were instant friends.
After my massage, I headed over to our friends’ house for some drinks, food, and pool action.
It was a wonderful way to end the weekend.
