Hey hey! Phew, it feels like it’s been a while since I last posted. (I guess it sort of has been!)
Time to play catch up!
On Thursday Chris and I finally signed the papers and became homeowners! For those of you that may not know, we’ve been living in “our” house for just over 6 months, but we were doing a rent-to-own deal. We were supposed to settle at the end of December, but nothing in our home-buying process has been easy, so that didn’t happen. Needless to say, I was about ready to cry tears of joy on Thursday… such a huge weight lifted off my shoulders!
Since I had to leave work early for our appointment and Chris had some time to kill before he had to go into work, we went out to lunch. Chris selected Chili’s; I hadn’t been in what felt like forever. We talked about how strange it was that we hadn’t been there in so long because it used to be one of our go-to spots.
Anyway, I went with the Big Mouth Bites which are basically cheeseburger sliders.
So good, yet so greasy
Of course, since we were celebrating, I requested a stop at my favorite place in all the land… Sublime Cupcakes.
Chris had to leave for work not long after we got home, and Stewie and I ended up taking an unexpected – yet much needed! – nap.
In the evening I headed to a combo class that my gym offers – CX Worx + express BodyPump. I had to make a quick pit-stop at Target on my way home, and I stumbled upon these goodies:
Peanut Butter Toast Crunch + Key Lime Crumble Chobani! I had been keeping an eye out for both, and trust me… neither disappoints! The key lime Cho’ qualifies as a legit dessert (and coming from a dessert fiend like me, that’s saying something!). I’ll definitely be stocking up at the grocery store for when my sweet tooth is in full force.
Friday was just another “normal” workday… nothing too eventful! I had to stay a little late – on a Friday, gasp! – to work on some yearbook stuff, then after a quick stop at home I was off to run a few errands. Since I was out, I stopped at Panera for dinner. I didn’t take a picture, but I got the “You Pick 2” – broccoli cheddar soup (yum!) + their new chopped chicken salad with avocado (also yum!).
Stewie and I ended up falling asleep on the couch (shocker!) before heading up to bed for a good night’s sleep.
Saturday morning I had a training run on the agenda – 8 miles.
This was the first time I had to track down a bathroom during a run! haha I made it about halfway through when I realized I was not going to make it a full 8 miles. A local grocery store did the trick (I was nearly distracted by the Girl Scouts selling cookies!) and I was on my way.
This run felt so much more difficult than last week’s 7. I’m thinking I need to make more of an effort to squeeze in a extra short run during the week. Anyway, I had to take a few walking breaks, but I always promise myself to not walk during the last mile. It was tough but I finished in just over an hour and a half and felt accomplished!
The majority of my afternoon Saturday was spent cleaning (blah!). I went to church, then Chris and I enjoyed our weekly pizza night.
Since I had gone to church last night, I was able to get a workout in this morning. (I usually take a rest day on Sundays.)
BodyPump was on the agenda!
The rest of my Sunday was spent grading… seriously. The. entire. day. I wish I could say I’ve got my day off tomorrow wide open for fun and relaxation, but there’s a yearbook deadline so I’ll likely definitely be working on that. How many days until summer?!?!
Did you do anything fun this weekend? I definitely don’t count cleaning and grading as fun, so I have to live vicariously through all of you!
