Weekend Things

So, I’ve been really bad about blogging lately.  My mom even wrote me an email on Friday to make sure I wasn’t dead, since there was no post.  I apologize, but like I said a few months ago, I’ve been feeling rather boring and uninteresting so I don’t want to bore you all also.  Plus, on Friday I had a meeting from 9-11 and then left at 11:30 for our Holiday Party so there really wasn’t time to blog.

This year our party was at restaurant in Rockville called Timpano, and was absolutely delicious.  From the mini crab cake appetizers, to the chocolate fountain desert station (which I discovered some people think are gross) everything was amazing.  I broke my no drinking rule and had 3 glasses of red wine (they were free!) throughout the course of the afternoon, and made it home for the evening around 4:45.  I proceeded to spend the rest of my night relaxing in my living room watching TV and not drinking.

Chocolate Fountain!

I woke up Saturday morning  hydrated and un-hungover, which was unusual so I decided to take advantage of it by going for a run.  Ok by the time I had coffee, ate breakfast and actually made it out the door it was almost noon, but who’s keeping track.

Dark circles, previous days mascara (which by the end of my run was streaming down my face)

It was perfect running weather, about 45 and sunny, and for my first outdoor run since the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler in April, it surprisingly didn’t suck.  I completed 3.1 miles at a 9:15 pace and my last mile was 8:57.  Although I forgot how much harder outdoor running is on the legs, because despite the “hilly” 5ks I have been doing on the treadmill my shins and quads are still a little sore today.  Guess I have to get outdoors more.

The rest of Saturday involved a trip to a bar to watch JMU lose to North Dakota State in the 2nd round of the playoffs, boo.  It was fun though, Adrienne I managed to snag two seats at the bar with a TV showing the game directly in front of us.  I again broke my no drinking rule and had 3 beers, but whatever, I still drank a lot less this weekend than normal.  We were both in bed by 10 pm on Saturday night.  It was glorious.

Yesterday, the only time I left the house was to hit up the grocery store for enough food to last me the next 4 days.  So, pretty much I bought a chicken. Oh, and some carrots and grapes.  Sounds fun and filling right?  Once the sun went down, I decided it was chilly enough to use the fireplace for the first time this year.

It kept us warm through the Packers game and Dexter, after which I called it a night and retreated to my bedroom.  It was a nice relaxing weekend to prepare me for what will probably be the longest week in the history of the world.  Thursday night cannot come soon enough!  Although,  I am already having problems falling asleep due to travel nerves.  Flying out of an airport 1.5 hours away is stressing me out more than my usual 10 minute drive. Oh well, I’m sure I’ll live.

Happy Monday!

  1. Hahaha I love that your mom e-mailed you to see if you were ok since you hadn’t posted 😉 It’s such a busy time of year, I totally understand!

    Hahaha I’m glad I’m not the only one who wakes up (and goes running) with raccoon eyes. I figure it’s going to end up there anyway! haha

    Happy Monday!

  2. you haven’t run outside since March??? I’d be a basket case.

  3. I haven’t run outside much lately either. Maybe 3 times since September. I tried running around the block with the dog the other day after getting off the treadmill, it was rough.

  4. My mom checks up on me, too. If I don’t post, I get the “everything ok?” text.

    Hilarious. At least we know they care.

  5. Thats why my mom doesn’t know I have a blog. She would probably pull something like that and freak out.

  6. a. You look super skinny
    b. It was sooo nice out this weekend. I am trying to soak it all up before it’s too cold and miserable to walk the pup.
    c. going to bed by 10 on Saturdays is what the cool kids do. #jesslaw

  7. This sounds like a great weekeend!!

  8. I’d say that’s a win- drinking in moderation during holiday party season is harder than it looks. 🙂

  9. Football is so stupid. I’m over it completely.
    Sounds like a great weekend though. I drank… more than I should have. And not only socially like I’m supposed to. Dammit.

  10. Yumm, I’ve always wanted to try a chocolate fountain, haha.

    Go Packers!

  11. I’d be a basket case with the limited drinking thing.. oh God, I can’t even imagine.

  12. LOL – I get the random text from my mom is a blog post or three is missing.
    Love that run swiftly l/s tech shirt!
