Weekend recap

Don’t you just love weekends that are that perfect balance of busy and relaxation? I know I do. I need some time to myself to just chill.

On Friday I worked til 2pm, went out for a run with Lexi (who pooped out after mile 2 and wouldn’t move for 20 minutes) then got ready to meet up with a friend for dinner, drinks and a movie. We had crab legs (wearing fashionable “I Like Crabs” bibs!) and we saw The Bourne Legacy. Last weekend Becky and I watched all three of the Bourne movies, and I think she has created a monster! I’m hoping to read the first book soon. I liked the fourth movie! Despite a new main character and a new author writing under Robert Ludlum, I thought it was very well done! My date hated the ending, but up until that point, he liked it as well! All I know is I love these movies now, and all three of the dvds are going on my Christmas list!

 {Lexi is okay in this picture. Some have commented that she doesn't look well... and I have to agree, but I promise you, she is alive and kickin' today.}

Saturday I got up early and headed to the downtown farmer’s market with Zeke and my friend Ang. I haven’t been to the downtown market in ages for one reason or another, so I was really looking forward to a spinach pupusa and hopefully some good produce. I got my pupusa (and shared with Zeke!) and some summer squash and a Downtown Farmer’s Market reusable tote bag. I had been eyeing these totes for quite a while, but didn’t want to pay the $20 they were charging for them. Last week the market was caught in the rain and a few of them had water stains (that are barely visible!) so they cut prices 50%. I didn’t think twice and finally bought one. I’m starting the transition from plastic bags to using all reusable bags, hopefully this helps!

After the market Zeke and I headed to Grey’s for a lap around the lake, and then it was home for an afternoon of relaxing before heading out again for a bachelorette party. I ended up taking a quick nap and I’m really glad I did.

My friend Anna is getting married in about a month and her bachelorette party was Saturday night. We started at her house and then made our way downtown for dinner at a Dos Rios, a local Mexican restaurant. I had a really good time, but I was trying hard not to drink too much. For one, I wanted to be able to drive home and two, my body is not reacting to alcohol and hangovers very well anymore. I am basically out of commission for the entire day following, and I just don’t find that to be worth it anymore. Overall though, I had a great time and cannot wait to celebrate with her next month when she ties the knot!

Sunday was The Ultimate Lazy Day. I spent the entire day in my pajamas and it felt amazing. I started watching the first season of Felicity on Netflix and got through six episodes, I read a little bit of Gone Girl (which, I am struggling to get into) and took another nap. That evening I was scheduled to do an overnight for work, but other than that, I took it really easy and just relaxed. Felt amazing!

What the highlight of your weekend?

Sounds like an awesome weekend! I like weekends that are a good mix of downtime and having things to do. The last 2 have had a lot of downtime, which is what my body needs right now as marathon training sort of wears me out!

The highlight of my weekend was my 18 mile run and the post-run brunch with a bunch of run club people. The weather was cool and gorgeous and I felt great the whole run!

Sounds like a great weekend! I completely agree that the best weekend is a balance between fun and relaxation :) I just started reading Gone Girl too and I actually like it so far, but I'm not very far into it. For some reason I was really nervous about reading it and probably wouldn't have if I wasn't doing it for a book club haha.
Also I did not even know there was a 4th Bourne movie. I am SO out of the loop on movies!
