Hey guys! I hope you had a great weekend.
Mine started out on Friday evening with a trip to Olde Mecklenburg Brewery. B and I spent the evening there hanging out with some of his family. I am really bad about remembering to take pictures when I’m in a group of people so I don’t have any to post, but we ate a few appetizers and enjoyed some drinks. Just the typical things you do at a brewery
Saturday: R & R
I have had kind of a busy week so I wanted to use Saturday as an opportunity to do nothing. That’s pretty much what I did! I spent most of the day hanging out and watching Orange is the New Black. I also did a 50-minute ride on the trainer.
On Saturday evening, I went to the mall to check out the Nordstrom sale as well as try to find a new bathing suit. I have a Nordies card so I get early access to the sale, but quickly realized there were way too many things to explore in the limited time I had before the mall closed. I am hoping to stop by there one evening this week and pick out a few things. I usually like some of the makeup and jewelry they have on sale.
I stopped in Athleta to check out their swim suits but their sale stuff seemed picked over and I had a hard time finding my sizes in what I liked. I did get a good idea that their suits seem to fit true to size, so I’m planning on ordering something online instead.
There was one big win for the night, and that was a coat that I got in North Face. I’m not sure if you remember but my previous NF jacket was stolen out of my car this winter. The weather here is so mild that I decided not to replace it right then. I saw that North Face was having 30% off of their sale stuff, and realized that the jacket I had initially looked at in February as a replacement was on clearance for 1/2 of the retail price.
After a lazy day on Saturday, I used Sunday to get a lot of things done… errands, grocery shopping, laundry, etc.
Lily got groomed. She’s feeling fresh.
I have a visitor for the week!
I did a 35-minute run first thing in the morning. I have been going to the gym to do all of my runs since my cast is really hot, but the gym doesn’t open until 12 on Sunday and I didn’t want to wait that long to get my run out of the way and shower. It wasn’t too hot so I decided to go for a run outside. I started out on the greenway but realized it was a bit of a muddy mess after all of the rain we’ve been getting.
So I decided to run around downtown instead. There was no traffic out yet and it was great! I ended up running 2.5 miles with 10 minute walks before and after.
For dinner, B, Micah and I had a Mexican fiesta
We had shrimp, ground beef, black beans, lettuce, tomato and guacamole. The guys ate them with tortillas but I opted for chips. Two thumbs up for this meal
What did you do this weekend?
Do you make your own taco seasoning? I use this one and I love it! (you can halve the salt to decrease the sodium)
Have you checked out the Nordstrom sale? See anything you like?
