Wonderful Weekend

I'm kind of sad that it's Sunday night. I love my new job and I'm ready to get up tomorrow, but I really really really like sleeping in and NOT having to use an alarm clock. I hate the freaking beeping (but the radio alarms do not wake me up and phone alarms that have better noise options can be shut off too easily).

This weekend was a fabulous one. It started with my first workout at the new gym. It's most definitely a community center and not a gym, but it's got all the right equipment and a spin class, so it will do. Remember when I made the note to myself that if I only run once a week it's going to suck every time? Well that still stands true. Friday night I had a TERRIBLE run on the community center treadmill and left looking like this:

please note the really old middle school gym-style lockers behind me. the cc is clearly updated.
Luckily, I had a night out with friends afterward that shook away my running blues. I hate having bad runs. They feel so disappointing and not exactly the cardio I was hoping for, but it wasn't anything a little sushi and college basketball couldn't fix. (Poor UNM got kicked in you-know-what by BYU. We were able to beat them TWICE in the regular season, but not at conference time).

Saturday my sister and I went on an adventure. We tried to go have brunch at a place in the North Shore, but we never got there. We were following the gps just find, but then all of a sudden found ourselves going back south. It was a hilariously disasterous trip, but we did end up getting delicious waffles at the Friendly Toast in Cambridge. They win big in my book because they serve breakfast all day, and their bar was decorated with hilarious product spoofs.

And then there was today. Today was a Sunday for the memory books. I didn't get out of bed until 11:30am. Granted, there was the whole time change thing, and I was up until 2am (3am?), but it felt oh so good. I did some dishes, and prepped myself for the gym. As bad as my run was on Friday, it was THAT GOOD today. My legs felt great and my last mile was faster than my first two. After my run, I grab some coffee and oatmeal, and got myself a much (and I mean MUCH) needed manicure and pedicure.

My fingernails are painted that nice, dark, professional color, but my toes are hot pink. It may not be summer yet, but I wanted something to remind me that it's coming!

I then went to the grocery store and stocked up. It felt like all the things I usually get were on sale thing week! It was a grand trip and our fridge is now full and happy. The hubs and I then went to Thai dinner with a friend who's in town from Chicago. We haven't seen her since she and her husband were in VT for our wedding, so it was nice to catch up. We ended the night with some J.P. Licks. It's the best ice cream in Boston. They have amazing fro yo in addition to their long long list of ice cream flavors. The hubs got Leprechan's was bright spakin' green...and made with Sam Adam's! He was in ice cream heaven. I got blackberry and chocolate fro yo, with jimmies, of course.

I just don't think Sunday get any better. I'm not too tired yet, since I've only been up for about 10 hours lol, but I'm going to try to hit the hay and get ready for the week. I'm hoping today is an indication of how good the week might be.

  1. Mads, I think if this blog was just your own the title of the actual blog would have to do with photos from the bathroom or something like that! Keep it up!
