Friday afternoon I decided to tackle our garage. I took a bunch of donation stuff that had been sitting in a corned since November...whoops.
Then I stopped by Mama Jean's for lunch - smoothie, tuna & kale concoction, chips, and cookie...balance!
Our friends Scottie & Brandi were having an engagement party on Saturday, so I baked cookies and brownies while working in the garage. Multi-tasking at its finest!
DONE!!!! Jake had no idea I was doing all of this, so I wanted to get it all finished before he got home. The bikes will move, too, and I'm having a garage sale with my Momma, so after that, it'll be 100% clean!
Jake got home from work and we decided to walk to dinner at Bambino's, then stop by Creekside for a drink and to see a friend play.
Mmmmmm. I love their salads. We ate ALL the bread. Just carbo-loading for our long runs in the AM! ; )
How do you know you spend a lot of time with someone? This happens.
Saturday morning was an early morning for Jake and a semi-early morning for me. He had a 4 hour run at Busiek and I was joining for the last 2 hours. We stocked up on Gu! Yum.
I got to Busiek about 6:45 to meet the guys. I broke out my tall socks again and I'm SO glad I did. It was suuuuper muddy and we crossed a lot of water.
Before and after. That run hurt a little and I only did half of it...it was SO humid.
At least we had gorgeous views!
Then it was home to shower, change, and grab breakfast!
The perfect recovery at the Aviary. <3 We shared both meals and it was PERFECT. So good.
I forgot to get pictures at the engagement party Saturday - I was having too much fun talking to everyone! But we headed to the lake on Sunday. Jake rode his bike down and my friend Katie and I drove. This view was waiting for us.
Katie hates when I take pictures of her, so I try and take as many as possible. <3
I've been friends with these two since high school. They're the best! We had so much fun soaking up the sun. I'm still sad the weekend is over.
Jake finished his 4 hour ride and got to relax with us for a little bit! He was pretty excited about the seatbelt he made with his foam roller...
Then we all loaded into the car to go to a concert!
He gets this look a lot...I don't think he was cooperating.
He finally decided to behave! At least for one picture.
On Monday we got up early and grabbed breakfast with Katie on our way home. Mm.
Jake and I spent Monday driving around backroads and stopping at different rivers and creeks. It was SO much fun. He's a very serious driver. ; )
First stop - Lindenlure. It was PACKED. But still so pretty.
Then we went to an old bridge somewhere in Rogersville, I think. Jake finally wore his matching hat! I had to document it.
I loved this old barn. The sky was beautiful, too. It was just a perfect day!
For dinner, we went to Katie T.'s house and BBQ'd! Wade, one of our friends, grilled fish, steak kabobs, and sausage. Everything was phenomenal. While he grilled, we all played yard games. It was the perfect end to a fun weekend.
Our girls were extra sassy last night since we hadn't seen them for part of the weekend. At one point I look over and they're just staring at each other, then the next thing I know, I think they're hugging? They love each other...most of the time...
We were up at 4 to run this morning. It was a little rough after our weekend of not so healthy choices, but we got a tempo run in and both felt MUCh better afterwards.
I went to yoga after our run and now I'm going to spend the rest of the day cleaning, cooking, doing laundry, and editing! I hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday!
I write about whatever is going on each day. I want to use this space as a place to document my dissertation and training journeys.
