weekend highlights

26 Apr

Hi!  Tonight is going to have to be a quickie.  I’m going to try to work out before I go to work in the morning, which means getting up at 4:30am…eek!  It’s just not working for me – this “working out when I get home from work” thing.  I’ve tried and tried, but it is just brutal, and I miss morning workouts so much!  We’ll see how it goes:)

I did want to wrap up events from this past weekend.  We had such a great time with our friends who were in town, and we did end up going to see my cousin finish his marathon.  A couple things about it: A. I have been kicking myself for not running at least the half marathon this year.  B.  It was so fun just to be a part of it and see all the runners finish their races.  It totally made my day!

Here he is finishing the race.  His race time was approx 3 hours and 44 minutes.  And it was his first time!  I thought he did awesome.

Proud finisher:)

The marathoners in our family:)

After the race, Jonathan and I met my grandma and my aunt for lunch.  Unfortunately I didn’t get a pic (shoot!), but I had a “vegetable plate,” which consisted of a house salad with honey mustard dressing on the side, corn, steamed broccoli, steamed carrots and a plain baked potato with a side of salsa.  It was delish!

We finished off our time in the city with a trip to Target and Marshall’s.  I got some new workout capris, which I’ve been wearing pretty much constantly since yesterday afternoon.  They are so comfy!

Anyway, I got all excited there for a minute and jumped ahead a bit.  Let me back up and show some weekend fun in pictures

Baby Kate – Our friend’s Jason and Emily stayed with us Saturday night.  This is their adorable little one

After dinner at our Thai Restaurant in town.  Also, the same restaurant where Jon took me to tell me he wanted to be “more than friends.” 🙂

Cashews and Veggies with a Chili ginger sauce.  Seriously to die for.  Literally and figuratively if you consider the amount of sodium in it.  o’well.  Can’t win ’em all, can we?

served with brown rice.  mmm.

Well, that’s it from the weekend, and I’m off to hit the sack!  Only 4 weeks and 3 days until I have much more time for exercising, blogging, cooking and eating!

    Sounds like a great weekend. I sooo wish I could get excited about morning workouts. I was doing so good for a while there. That dinner looks great – sodium be darned!
