weekend review



You know those kinds of weekends where you do so much, but not really anything at the same time? Well that was our kind of weekend. Friday Eric did some work on our truck (we are putting it up for sale, that will get a post of its own, I'm sure.) while I did wifely duties like cook, watch Keeping up with the Kardashians, and taking care of the baby, ha!!
Saturday I got up and did an hour of spin, then ran a 5k. Ouchy! My new mom-body isn't used to that much action, ha ha! Eric and I actually ran the 5k with Mia. We ran that sucker in a whopping 38 minutes (ha ha). The bad news is: we are totally out of shape. The good news is: Eric totally understands why I need a jogging stroller now! And the extra good news is: We are going to start running together at least once a week!
Our little town had a kite festival, so after we got cleaned up we headed over to see what food vendors were there. I really wanted something deep fried :) We were so disappointed to find there were NO food vendors... I guess that's what we get for living in a little town. So we drove down main street and noticed there was a concert of some kind at the park. First thing we though of? Concert in the park = food vendors! So we parked, put Mia in the stroller and started walking through the park. We noticed in one corner there were adults dressed up in old Renaissance gear and fighting each other with fake swords. They were totally for real. Weirdest thing ever. And then we quickly realized the concert was totally some type of gospel music, which is great, just not what we were expecting. And there definitely weren't any food vendors, again. So we packed up and went to dairy queen for ice cream cones :) ha ha. All that hard work needed to be wasted on some ice cream :) So basically, our afternoon didn't go as planned! We spent that evening relaxing at home!
It has been SO long (at least 2 months) since we've had a weekend that we could just hangout at home! Despite the weird scenes at the park, it was just the weekend we needed to re coupe :)

Wish I could run a 5k. Actually, I wish I could run for 2 minutes without dying. Sounds like my kinda weekend;) (p.s Savanna has the same sleeper)

oh my word, we live in a small town too, and every year we have a "renaissance fair" where people from all over come dressed in renaissance attire and there's food and jewlery vendors etc etc. it's fun to go to for the food and the hand crafted stuff! except the people are EXTRA weird. like i wouldnt be surprised if they lived in those costumes lol

Holy cow, I would never do spin and a 5K in the same day! Of course I've never really done either of those things, so... ha! And Mia is SO cute it kills me every time!!

You ran a 5K in 38 minutes?! I doubt I could do that, haha! I doubt I could run the whole thing! Good job though! That is awesome! Glad you guys had a good weekend!

No joke several times a month a group all dressed up like that has a "battle" at the park by our house. I laugh every single time i see it. One guy has a boogie board as a "sheild" haha

Good job on the 5k! I gave birth in January and don't think I could do one till like.. December, haha! I'm terrible at running. Your daughter is so precious! Her smile is beautiful :)
Thanks for following my blog, btw. :)))

An hour of spin and then a 5K? Okay I need to move close to you some some motivation can rub off on me. She is the perfect combination of you two. Just beautiful!

Alyx said...

Ahhh you ran a 5k with a normal stroller?! Holy cow! I think jogging strollers are definitely a must, just because of the nice tires they have!

Layne and McKenzie Papenfuss said...
