Hey guys! I just want to give you a heads up that Running on Peanut Butter and Bloglovin are having relationship issues right now, so you won’t be seeing my posts in there until I can become a smartie pants and figure out inner computer stuff.
If you know of a great techie who can help me pinpoint why the posts won’t show up, I’d appreciate that! I worked with Bloglovin’, my hosting site, and my designer and we’re all at a loss! Keep subscribing, but don’t rely on the site for my posts.
Public service announcement closed.
Ok guys, this weekend was a fun one!
After work on Thursday I headed across town to my cousin Lindze’s, and spent the evening with her and her hubs, Mike, and their 2 month old son Lucas.
He’s the cutest little duckling ever!
He was actually 2 months on Thursday, and he’s already in 6 month old clothes! His cheeks, I just want to pinch!
One of my favorite parts of the night was bed time.
Lindz let me pick the book, and then she read to the little frog while Mike and I listened. And then it was time for Mike to head to basketball and for me to head home and get some rest!
I started my morning with a 3 mile run and then completed 2 rounds of the 7 minute workout, followed up by deadlifts and standing side crunches before delegating the rest of my afternoon to blog work.
Not exactly how I wanted to spend the first half of my Saturday, but it had to get done.
After a day of work, it was time for a night of play. I headed to Mark’s a little before 6 and we brainstormed at his apartment where we were going for dinner. He is the most indecisive guy when it comes to what foods he’s craving, and since I had no cravings at the moment (very rare), we were stuck.
We toyed with the idea of driving to a neighboring town, but we love just walking across the street to 2 of our favorite places.
We started the night at Mint Bistro, and were happy to see our favorite bartender was working, so we settled in at the bar as usual, and perused the menu.
We were going to start with edamame, but when I made a disgusted comment about a seaweed salad on the menu, Mark decided that was our starter. He said he had it before and LOVED it.
Verdict: Amazing! I couldn’t quite pinpoint what it reminded me of, but it was so good! When we were leaving, Mark even debated getting a few more to go.
After our Seaweed Salad, we decided on ordering the Rainbow Rolls and Monarchs Maki.
I wasn’t a fan of the Monarchs Maki since it was too spicy for this wimp, but the Rainbow Rolls were where it was at! I only had maybe 4 rolls total since I wasn’t too hungry, but I had plenty of room for some beer.
After our dinner, we headed next door to our favorite, THE FARM! Luckily it wasn’t too busy, so we were able to hang out with our favorite bartender, Troy, for a bit.
And then, the photo shoot started. Mark manned the phone and kept getting finger happy and just clicked away.
Are you ready for this?
This one is my absolute favorite picture of us, ever. This is as dorky as we get, and how happy we are to be at The Farm.
Going in for the strangle.
The hand slipped from the neck to gouging eyes out. Oopstini.
That pout. I can’t.
It was so great being able to spend some quality time with Mark. We only lasted until about 12:30, which is early for us, but we were so exhausted and literally passed out on his couch the moment we opened the door.
I started my morning off with a maybe 3.6 mile run? My Garmin died at mile 1.8, so I had to guesstimate the rest of it. I followed it up with 2 rounds of the 7 minute workout, but I was so carb-depleted and out of energy that I couldn’t last any longer.
I fueled up with the Best (Cookies & Cream) Protein Pancakes. Topped with a schmear of peanut buttah.
Now I’m off to my Aunt & Uncles Annual Lewis Luau!
Hope you guys enjoy your Sunday!
