This weekend definitely felt like a fall weekend, almost winter like. Our temps dipped, but it made it more of a cozy feeling, making me feel more relaxing. I already updated you on Friday, so let’s start with Saturday!
After staying awake past midnight on Friday, I ended up sleeping until 8:30! I was shocked; though I was awake at 6 playing with Benson so he would go back to sleep, but I’m not counting that. It felt great to get up and start the cool morning at home. The temps at 6:00 were in the 30s, making it a rest day!
Around 9:30, Matt came over so we could get ready and head to the Strip District. Basically, the Strip is a mix of a ton of different stores, and some of the best restaurants, along with street vendors. Things are cheap, and it’s always a crazy mess down there.
We really only went for two reasons: coffee and beer. Can you tell this was a man’s trip? Neither of those appeal to me! We headed to the coffee place first, where Aaron found one he really wanted to try, and then both Matt and I bought my dad some new coffee. Being that he is still in so much pain, and unable to do anything, he really enjoys his coffee, so we were happy to give him some new flavors! We made our way to the beer store next. However, the store that it was in couldn’t get the permit to open the doors. Whomp whomp.. I could tell they were both upset because they really wanted these Growlers with delicious beer (or so they say.) Lo and behold, the beer store opened the side of the building and sold it from there! They were very happy!
After finishing at the Strip District, we headed to the next destination: Pittsburgh Penguin Game! We ended up being a bit early (this never happens!) so the boys chose to hang out in the parking lot drinking their good beer, to save money inside the game on crappy beer. I agreed because beer is expensive inside
How funny is it that they packed these up like they were babies? Aaron had a blanket for some reason in his trunk, and they literally wrapped them up. I was dying of laughter.
Since my bladder hates me and no bathrooms were around, we made our way inside to find something to eat.
Nachos are one of my favorite foods, so I was happy to share these bad boys with Aaron. They were the Pulled Pork Nachos. Mmm
We settled in to our seats, and enjoyed the game.
This game was amazing. Honestly, all of my favorite things were put together in one game! We had a penalty shot, a fight, overtime, and we won in a shootout! I’m not sure there is a better game!
By the time we got home from the game, I was not only freezing (the arenas are cold!), but starving. We cooked some homemade chicken fingers, hung out with Benson, and then went to visit my mother-in-law. She had a knee replacement last week, so we wanted to check in!
The morning was quite lazy, just spent catching up on blogs, meal planning, and watching some TV. We headed off to church, then I was off for my 10 mile run! I did it, and felt great! Hoping that stays with me for 2 more weeks. I had time to plan my workouts, do some meal prep, and hang out on the couch. Pretty marvelous end to a pretty marvelous weekend, if you ask me!
Tell me 3 things you did this weekend.
How often do you do laundry? Once a week. That’s really only because I run out of sports bras, too. If I didn’t work out (like that week I took off), I don’t need to do it that often, and I don’t!
