I had the best weekend ever!! It started on Friday morning with the most amazing cycling class – the instructor was the best I’ve ever had! Then, Rebekah planned a surprise for her boyfriend man to celebrate a special occasion at an eclectic restaurant/show extravaganza called Medieval Times. The women introduced themselves as wenches and the men as servants. We were referred to as lords and ladies – I felt so special! 🙂
And then there were horses and jousting and some serious fighting over the princess of the kingdom!
The dinner was served without utensils, so that was definitely interesting. Luckily soup isn’t so hard so slurp!
Everything was so cute and it was a great way to nerd out! I felt like I was living inside of Game of Thrones (please come back on TV ASAP!!)!!
Saturday morning the gang and I ran a 5K that Sara at Fit.Fun.Femme helped coordinate as a volunteer and it was adorable! It was a race for humans + dogs so of course, the Senator was as happy as could be!
Hey beautiful face Jacque – such a trooper! 🙂 The race was awesome, hilly as it was, and the post race breakfast hit the spot. Is it just me or does running a race validate a delightfully sinful breakfast?
Later on, for dinner, my boyfriend and I grilled out some zucchini patties and made some sweet potatoes! Sometimes, staying in for a home cooked meal on Saturday night is so much better than anything else, am I right???? 🙂 No? I’m the only one with no life? Ok, cool!
For the record, white sweet potatoes are SIGNIFICANTLY better than orange ones (yams). By farrrrrrrrrrrrr. I just discovered this and couldn’t be happier! I take that back, I would be happier if they didn’t cost $2.49/pound. Dumb, but worth it right now. 🙂
And finally, yesterday, I ended my weekend with my ladies getting my nails done…
…and completing an impromptu little mini triathlon by swimming 1.2 miles, running a 5K, and biking 7 miles. I was supposed to go for a long run but I overslept and it was too hot when I awoke. I did 10 + miles among three different sports… Something is better than nothing! 🙂 And here’s a fun new development – swimming + the LA Fitness class Rebekah and I have been taking are helping my muscles come out to play! I was pleasantly surprised when I flexed and this happened!
Yes to progress!
But, just like that, my amazing and fantastic weekend is over. Sad, but true. Luckily, we have Labor Day coming up and I’m going on vacation! Hurry up, Friday! 🙂
What’s your favorite way to nerd out? I like things like Medieval Times + Game of Thrones!
When you cook in, what’s your favorite thing to make?
Would you rather run 10 miles, swim 3 miles, or bike 30 miles? I am torn here…. 🙂
