Last weekend, James and I drove home to visit family for the weekend. We had to drive through sleet and rain for about an hour, then it was clear roads all the way home! Mom and I were able to get out Saturday late morning for a run with Shay. The weather was gorgeous for February, and we had a great run, just like old times. Shay wasn’t having anything to do with the picture before our run, she wanted to run and chase squirrels! After our run, we got pedicures at the beauty school, which felt amazing, and now I have pretty pink toes for spring, if spring ever decides to arrive. I do love my Shay; I miss being able to run with her and Mom on a daily basis.
One of the most exciting parts of the weekend was getting to meet this handsome little fellow, Gordon. Mom and Dad adopted him a couple months go, and he’s been ornery and playful and adorable. He’s about 9 or 10 months old, and he is so playful!
I was also coerced into buying girl scout cookies by the cutest and most persuasive girl scout I know. I bought cookies on Saturday, and they are gone already. Crazy how addictive and yummy those things are.
We visited Grandma and Granddad, and Grandma shared her chocolates from Valentine’s Day with us. She go the biggest box of chocolates ever. Notice how she is eating them from the bottom right hand corner up to work her way through the box.
I found this gem of a photo while looking through old pictures with Ava over the weekend. Talk about a zumba #throwback! I rocked that front row back in the day. Miss my zumba days with Michelle, Mom, Maja, and the gang.
We came home Sunday afternoon, and though we missed watching the Oscars on Sunday, we watched them Monday night. For the first year in many, James and I didn’t bet who would win each category. I’m pretty sure I’ve won the last 5 years, at least! Jasper was happy to have us home, I like to think he missed us while we were gone. I know I missed him.
After a not-so-great run on Monday, I missed running Tuesday due to a Dentist appointment. I was able to make it to the Groupie run tonight, and test-ran in some Adidas Ultra Boost shoes. They are cushy and responsive, I liked them quite a bit. The wind sure was cold on the run tonight though, I’m glad we ran into the wind the first half, so I had a tail wind on the way back.
It’s supposed to snow 3-6 inches this weekend, we’ll see if it actually does. House of Cards is released tomorrow, and I’m sure James and I will be watching most, if not all, of the episodes within a few days. If it snows, it’ll be a great opportunity to binge watch them. We are still working our way through Sherlock too, we are ready for Season 3. It’s been a great show to watch, we are in love with the show and Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman‘s performances.
Have a great weekend, and if it snows, be safe! Best of luck to my sister who’s running the Little Rock Half Marathon this weekend!
