How was your weekend? Mine was good. A little bit random, but full of lots of fun moments. Friday, I got dinner from Chili’s with my friend Christa. We did the two for $20, and both got the chicken fajitas, which were pretty awesome. A LOT of food – I don’t think I made it halfway through my mix-ins. Totally okay with me, though. Leftovers rock! Then, Phyll and I headed down to Pella for the weekend. First stop was for a few beers at the local bar to see some more friends.
I had a very friend-full Friday! (Sorry, that sounded better in my head.)
We got home and hit the hay. Saturday morning, we awoke to Casey’s breakfast pizza (oh, so good!) courtesy of my dad, and had a leisurely breakfast and did some catching up. Then, I took advantage of the gorgeous weather and got a run in. I had thought Saturday’s weather was going to be awful, but was really pleasantly surprised that I didn’t have to stay in on the treadmill. I borrowed a long-sleeve Dry-Fit from my dad (advantages of having a dad who’s a cyclist!) to ward off the extra wind and headed out. The run was great, and felt extra-special since it was the first time I was able to take out my new shoes.
Speaking of my new shoes, I didn’t realize how crazy big my hands looked/crazy small my shoe looked in this photo from Friday. So, for those of you who didn’t ask, I have normal-sized extremities. Just not-always-so-great photography skills.
It wasn’t a long run, but I enjoyed every minute. I had to head in early, because we had plans for an afternoon matinee of Les Miserables! I’d been waiting forever to see that, and was excited to finally get to go. All in all, I do perform the screenplay (because it’s AH-mazing), but the movie was also well-done.
We got some dinner at Applebee’s with the family, and then stayed in for a night of puzzle-making.
I HATE when used puzzles are missing pieces. Please, please, please, if you donate a puzzle to Goodwill, make sure it’s got all the pieces, first, okay?
Sunday, we woke up to much-colder weather and snowflakes. Seeing those, we headed back to Ames after breakfast with the family. Sunday was filled with a bit of errand-running and unpacking. Oh, and pizza. My favorite.
Today, is a very special day, and EXTRA marvelous because … it’s Phyll & I’s 5th anniversary! No, I’m not married. It’s our 5-year dating anniversary. As cheesy as it sounds, it feels like it’s flown by, and I feel so lucky to have him in my life. He’s a keeper .
