I am in one heck of a wonderful mood!
I started my morning with a tortilla spread with this beautiful baby and some banana:
...and then I found $5.00
This has been a great weekend so far!
Yesterday I got home from school and snuggled on the couch with Izzy for awhile, waiting for Ben to get home. We watched a few episodes of the creepiest show on t.v. and I decided that for my sanity, I need to stop watching crime shows. I woke up 3 times during the night, thinking about the episodes I'd watched and how scared I was. I'm a baby...and I need to stick with sitcoms and MTV reality shows.
Anyway, when Ben got home we decided to have Qdoba for dinner! I got a HUGE vegetarian burrito, with loads of guacamole and tons of lettuce and corn salsa! SO GOOD! I ate about 2/3 of it, and Ben helped me finish the rest.
After dinner, we went to my favorite place in the world, where I got my favorite dessert in the world, a cheesecake ice and strawberry custard gelati! Rita's officially opened for the season yesterday, and I was SHOCKED that there were no customers in the store when I went in! My gelati was amazing, and I saved half for later...which I'll probably go grab in a few hours for a yummy evening snack!
Friday night ended in more snuggling on the couch and discussing future plans...which include going back to school for Ben! We got really excited talking about our plans. It makes me feel so grown up! :)
...and I brushed the siamese...

After tutoring I headed over to a local park to meet up with two of my friends, Alyssa and (her sister) Sarah!
|very historic watermill...and can you see Alyssa? :)|
Since we were planning on running some more, I asked Ben to wait a bit before he came to unlock my car...and thankfully he didn't have plans, so he was flexible!
We ran out 1.7 miles and back, though Alyssa tripped and hurt her shin on a stick, so we did a little interval walking.
It was wonderful! I had such a great time running in the woods! It was about 65 degrees out, sunny, no wind...perfect running conditions! I felt like I could have run for miles and miles...though I think I only totaled about 3.5. I realized today how much I enjoy running outdoors on a trail! I've run in my neighborhood plenty of times, and really dislike running around a subdivision. Every time I think about running outside, I almost dread it, since I really don't have many options for places to run after school, besides my subdivision or the gym. Today's run made me realize how important it is to find places to run where I will ENJOY my run! It didn't hurt to have my girlfriends running with me...the conversation was fun and helped me keep going!
|Super Saturday with my bestie!|
After our runs and walks, we decided to grab a late lunch/early dinner at a local brewery. I had an awesome boca burger on a wheat bun, topped with cheddar cheese, guacamole, and jalepenos...with lettuce and tomato, too! I also had a side salad in place of fries, which was a poor choice because it was ice berg and a half of a tomato...the fries on my friends plates were way better! Ben came along for the girl's lunch, and after I heard him order a draft beer, I really started craving one! So, I had a bud light draft with my lunch...and it wasn't too bad! I'm sure I could have ordered a fancier beer, but bud light went well with my burger...and reminded me of my college days. :-D
Now, it's time do our taxes and relax! Happy weekend, friends!
