Good Monday morning, friends! Spring is here (yesterday, in case you live under a rock)!
Last week, the grass turned green, and the sky turned blue and it looked like spring, until, of course, it turned cold and gross toward the end of the week. My view at work is still amazing, by the way.
Monday after work, I rode my bike 10 miles to State Line and back, on the trails. I saw several deer on my little trip. Spring is so pretty!
It was my first true bike ride on my new bike, besides riding her home from the bike store. The hills weren’t as tough as I was imagining, so I guess my time spent on the cycle bike in cycle class has been paying off!
Michelle was out of town for a few days last week, and Jasper missed her, I think. You can tell because he’s laying on top of her clothes hamper. He was here for at least an hour Monday night.
Both Tuesday and Wednesday nights, Amy and I ran our favorite 5 mile loop around the neighborhood. 2 fun, successful runs, done and done!
Thursday, I had lunch with Amy and Joshua before they picked up Amy’s mom from the airport for a visit. I love hanging out with this little one. He asked me to be his girlfriend this weekend. Watch out, ladies, he likes the older gals.
So, there’s this “trophy” at work… the “reply all trophy.” You are awarded the trophy by hitting “reply all” to an email that clearly shouldn’t be a reply all. Well, you can see where this is going… on Friday, I was awarded this prestigious honor, by accidentally replying all to an email that was not meant to be replied to everyone. So now it sits, at my desk, until it can be “awarded” to the next lucky individual. It’s really a fun little quirk about working for RTS, another reason it’s such a fun and great place to work.
Friday night, since it got chilly again, Michelle and I had chili, cinnamon rolls, and wine. Perfect Friday night. For those of you not from the mid-west, do you eat cinnamon rolls with your chili? It was something we grew up doing in western KS, and so many people give me odd looks when I mention it, but it’s just about one of the best things ever.
Later on Friday night, Jasper and I watched Scandal. He got sleepy though.
Saturday morning, I went to cycle class. Before cycle, I wanted to run a couple miles on the treadmill. I consider the photo below a success, because my knee started hurting while on the treadmill, and instead of pushing through, I got off and stretched it (the stretch below is how I somehow get the pain in my knee to go away.. thanks Dr. Shabel!). Once I hopped back on the treadmill, I felt about 90% better! I finished my run and went to cycle class.
I met up with Amy and her family for brunch, and then did a bit of shopping. Later, we hung out at her house, and I helped show Joshua how to ride his bike. No better way to show him than to ride his bike myself!
Then it was haircut/hair color time! I ended up going quite a bit darker than I have in a while, and chopped off about 3 inches! It is a tiny bit shorter than I wanted, but it’ll grow in no time, and be perfect!
I’ve finally joined the club (a couple weeks ago) and downloaded snapchat. I could not stop laughing at the two pictures below. Oh my goodness. I still crack up when I see Kristen’s. I hope you get a laugh out of it too! (my snap name is renfle if you want to add me. 😛 )
I’m super excited to go home this weekend for a short visit over Easter! I hope everyone has a great week, and a good Easter!
