The weekend went by way too quickly, as usual, but it was good one — the perfect mix of relaxation and busyness. Lots of marvelous things to talk about!
On Friday night, I had a great night out with Jordan, Molly, Hilary, and Hilary’s boyfriend. Though our experience at the restaurant is nothing to rave about, we had a great time catching up with each other.
On Saturday, my friend found her wedding dress! It’s kind of a long story, but my cousin actually bought two dresses when she was getting married (she changed her mind), and the one that she didn’t wear was just sitting in her parents’ house. When my friend got engaged, I told her about the dress, and she liked it! I picked it up two weekends ago when we were in Michigan, and she tried it on yesterday and said “yes!” It’s really pretty, and she got it for a great price.
Also on Saturday…
I signed up for my second half marathon! I will be running the Indianapolis Mini-Marathon in May! And guess is doing it with me? My husband, of course! And Molly, and her friend. Our whole group will be back together again for another race . It’s a huge race, so it’ll be different from my first half marathon experience, but I spectated last year after running the 5k, and it’s such a fun event because the whole city is so supportive.
On Sunday, Jordan and I ate at Panera after church. Panera is always marvelous .
After eating at Panera, I went home and made brownies for my dad as an early birthday/”thank you for working on Jordan’s car” present. I brought them to our usual Sunday night dinner, and they were enjoyed by all . His actual birthday is today — Happy Birthday Dad, I love you!!
While the brownies cooled, Jordan and I decided to go to our apartment gym to get in some cardio. I went with the plan that I was going to walk on the treadmill, but I decided to see how my legs would do if I tried running — it’d been a full month. I ended up walking two miles and running one, and my legs felt pretty good! I still had a little pain in my knee, so I stopped when it hurt, but I think I’ll be able to start up again pretty soon!
All in all, it was a marvelous weekend. Now…back to reality .
