Weekend Recap

Happy Sunday!

This weekend has been super fun!

Friday

We had a Friday Night Date Night and went to Mellow Mushroom. I had a small greek salad and their delicious gourmet white pizza.

After dinner, we popped into Movie Stop next door. It had been awhile since either one of us had been there, and the entire store had been revamped. One whole side of the store was merchandise. For nerds like us, it was awesome!

Saturday

Saturday morning, I met up with Max and her dog Rayla for some running and fetch at Gadsden Park.

Gadsden Park is right next to Macdill Air Force Base so planes are often seen up close.

After I got home, I whipped up my second smoothie fail in 2 days. Yeah, that was fun! 😦 This one though, I think can be blamed on my NutriBullet. It’s been acting weird and sticking a bit.

Saturday afternoon was a lot of fun. My mom and I headed downtown to RiverFest at the Riverwalk. It was a huge two-day event with different things going on all over. At one end of the Riverwalk was a carnival, the other end had live music (and when we were there) a mac & cheese cookoff, and throughout the Riverwalk were different vendors setup.

LOVE the view!

Downtown was a lot busier than I was expecting when we arrived, and the garage I wanted to park in was closed. I picked the next garage over, and it wasn’t until I was entering the garage and was unable to turn around, that I realized it was a flat fee of 20 bucks to park there. Ugh!

Note: there are two things I really dislike paying for. Shipping and parking. 😉

We sampled mac and cheese, and then did some awesome people-watching.

My mom is a giant dork and was sooo excited to get her picture with Mayor Bob Buckhorn.

After the Boy got off work, he and I headed to dinner with my parents. My mom picked Ruby Tuesday’s. I really love their salad bar!

Sunday

I woke up early this morning because Mr. Chris and I had a running date planned. We went downtown and got in 3.47 miles. It felt great and the weather was perfect.

I met the Boy at the gym afterwards and got in 45 minutes of core-work. I’ll definitely be feeling that tomorrow! 😉 After running a few errands, we made our way back home to relax and watch some TV.

Some randomness from this weekend…

Lately, I have been loving KIND bars, and this flavor was super tasty!

I somehow gotten eaten by mosquitoes this week without knowing it. This is just 3 of 7 bites, and… I’m pretty sure I was wearing jeans when this happened.

Starbucks started their Frappuccino happy hour. Everyday from 3-5 they are half off!

This Clif Bar flavor is very yummy!

Penney’s had a good sale this weekend, AND even better I had a coupon. I got these bad boys for $4! Score!

If anyone ever asks, the key to my heart can be found in a bottle of classic root beer.

Root beer in a bottle! Yes!

I got a glimpse of the Route 66 Marathon medal, and I think it looks AWESOME!
