This weekend, one word. Awesome.
While being a complete bum Friday afternoon, Mark called and told me to stop being lazy when I told him what I was doing (watching Orange is the New Black, even though it was gorgeous out). He begged me to come over before it was dark out, and wouldn’t hang up until I told him a specific time I’d be there.
When I got to his apartment at 7, he took me up to his apartment rooftop.
For this sunset. Such an awesome surprise and an awesome friend!
It was so breathtaking seeing our city from a new angle, and it made me appreciate it so much more.
It was also really cool to be able to see my apartment, gym and office from this spot. The lights in the bottom right are my office and gym. So close! We then headed inside and debated on what to do. He was craving some seaweed salad, so we headed over to Mint Bistro. We had planned to head right back and watch a movie, but when we saw our favorite waitress/bartender Delihah, we grabbed a seat at the bar and Mark ordered more apps. Fish tacos, seaweed salad, and beet salad.
While at Mint Bistro, Janine texted me and asked why I had walked by The Farm without going in and grabbing a drink with her. I didn’t even realize she was there, but I’m glad her husband Aaron spotted me. After Mint Bistro, we headed into The Farm to grab a drink with them and their friends, while watching Pat & the Hats perform.
There was a Curious Traveler promo going on, so we had a little fun with some free giveaways.
Wait for it…
Ayyyyy nice mustache man!
Mark had a coworker who was there as well, so I let him do his manly things while I hung out with Janine. It worked perfectly! I had so much fun with Janine, and woman, next time Pat & the Hats play again, let me know!
Upon waking, I made a delicious bowl of banana slices, almond milk and 1.5 tbsp of sunbutter. It was so good, and fueled me for a kick ass workout at Gold’s.
- 1 slow mile
- 2 HIIT miles
- this kettlebell workout. I subbed in kettlebell swings for the Dip & Kick.
I was dead at the end of this, and felt it in my booty right away. Weekends at the gym are my favorite because I get to take my time and get in a quality workout.
After the gym, I showered, foam rolled and ate before heading to the Merrimack Outlets to take advantage of the awesome Labor Day sales.
I originally went solely to check out Reebok and browse their Crossfit shoes. Since I’ve signed up, I want to take it seriously, and I thought getting Crossfit trainers would be practical.
The Nano 2.0’s were comfy, but didn’t have colors I wanted, so I was ecstatic when I found the original Crossfit One shoes on sale for $70. Even better that I could use my 40% coupon on them.
New Crossfit shoes for $50? Yes please! I figured if I get really serious about it, eventually I will go for the Nanos.
$230 worth of clothing and shoes for $120. A good deal seriously turns me on.
The only bad thing about shopping was that it was 80 out but felt like 150. If the humidity could be 300%, then it was. I was dripping sweat, and couldn’t handle if people were walking slower than 7 mph.
The rest of Saturday was spent out with the fam and Ryan’s childhood best friends and parents.
Yesterday was a wild day road trippin’ with my girl, Lindsay, which you will hear all about Wednesday!
How did you enjoy the long Labor Day weekend?
