I was also planning on trying out the pants yesterday, but this happened instead:
Okay, not quite. But we did have a tornado watch (and maybe a warning at some point?) and lots of rain, thunder, and lightning which I'm told are not the best running conditions. So I stayed inside right next to the windows where it was nice and safe.
Every Monday when I get to work I'm asked how my weekend was and half of the time I can't even remember what we did. But this week I remember.
We ate omelets.
Josh is the best omelet maker EVAR in case you didn't know. He makes really nomtastic omelets.
Then Josh's mom (my BFF Lynda) came over and brought us some belated Valentines presents (AKA candy!) Good thing I didn't try to do anything stupid like give up sugar.
don't mind my Saturday morning bed hair.
About a month ago we had cookies 'n creme ice cream and I said it was my favorite ice cream ever... my BFF remembered and got me these super yummy cookies 'n creme candies!!! What a great BFF! I tried to tell Josh they were horrible and so he probably shouldn't eat any of them but he didn't fall for it, so I guess I have to share:(
I had lunch with my Running Pack.
Before I was side-lined, Jenn and I made friends with a couple girls in our running group named Abbi and Jamie. Even though I've only been able to run with them once, they still include me in the "running pack." :) Abbi has struggled with IT band issues as well and is the one who recommended the pants to me! Unfortunately, her issues are coming back too and she has opted out of the marathon as well... so has Jamie. Jenn is the only one still
We discussed a new plan for our new goal marathon this fall... hopefully our slower rate of increasing our mileage will help us to not to get injured/stay injury free (assuming I ever get over my injury!)
(I forgot my camera... bad blogger! bad!) But I am proud of myself because I decided to be a big girl and tried lots of new foods at our lunch that were previously scary to me... asparagus, egg plant, and squash.
We saw a movie.
It was Josh's turn to pick and I must say he did a great job. I loved it! And I was so surprised by the ending. P.S. I have decided that Liam Neeson must be one of my fave actors cause I have now seen 2 of his movies and actually stayed awake/remember the plot/really liked them (the other being Taken.)
Lola got a sweater.
Every Sunday, Mama (that would be me) goes to the grocery. Usually it's a I-want-to-stab-my-eyes-out trip to Wally World and this weekend was no exception... but this week's excursion was also accompanied by a trip to my fave Tarjay (which makes everything better!) and Lola & Kosmo's fave, PetSmart. I had to go there because a couple weeks ago we got Lola a sock monkey similar to this one:
I thought she looked adorable in it!! Even though she is almost too big for it!!! I got her a Small because the Medium looked huge. I thought for sure she could fit into it, but apparently I should have gone with the Medium... little piggy! She probably won't even be able to fit into it by the end of the week, you know how she grows...
Our little Loly Bear is 15 weeks old this week! She has pretty much mastered potty training (I think she only had 1 or 2 accidents all last week!!) and has been sleeping much better! She can also definitely jump onto the couch now. Such a big girl! Love love love her.
How was your weekend?
