Weekend Wrap Up

Its sad when this time rolls around on a Sunday night.  I wish weekends could last one day longer.  But no luck.  I shouldn't complain though - I had a stellar weekend. 

Friday night I got together with friends to make some vegan recipes and drink some wine.  The food was good but the company was better.

Saturday morning after my TRX class I ran with some old friends and caught up.  Rick who I ran my first marathon with ran the Pittsburgh marathon at the start of May and smashed our PR of 4:08 coming in at 3:49.  It was fun to run with him again.  And guess what - we ran 8k and I didn't once think about anything but the run!

Then Saturday night a hot tub party - not nearly as exciting as it sounds.  My girls were invited and enjoyed bobbing in the hot tub.

Today the weather was beautiful and I was home alone - unexpectantly.  Thanks to a birthday party and a play date.  I will be away all week for work so I made sure all the house work and laundry was caught up... then I hung out here for a bit.

And with the extra time I had I made a few new recipes - carrot hummus and soft tortillas.
