I lalalalove weekends. So much. This weekend was nothing short of fun and amazing, and I have so much to be thankful for. From awesome family and friends to delicious chicken wings.
My Friday night was spent celebrating my cousin Lindze’s 30th birthday. Lindze had her birthday early last week, but her husband Mike had a bunch of her closest friends get together at Margarita’s for appetizers and drinks. I hadn’t been out in THE longest time, and I was really excited (once my headache went away). Ripped jeans, leopard flats, a white scrunched top from Express and a black leather jacket. It felt so nice to be dressed up and girly!
The birthday girl!
The night was full of laughs, buffalo chicken wings (we had a mini boneyard going on our end of the table), chips, and other delicious Mexican appetizers, courtesy of an amazing husband. It was so much fun being out and seeing some of the awesome friends of Lindze’s that have also turned into people who I have grown to know over the years.
I didn’t get to bed until about 11 Friday night, so I chose to turn off my 7:30 am alarm Saturday morning and slept another hour. The extra sleep felt nice, and after waking up a bit, I headed over to the gym to get a tempo run in.
1 mile warm-up run, 2 mile tempo run which was tough, and a very short cool down since I was absolutely out of steam. After the run it was on to a mini shoulder workout, 8 minutes of abs, and lots of stretching. My legs were really sore from two hard runs in a row, so it felt really nice to loosen them up a bit!
After my run, I showered, had a shake, and settled on the couch while I painted my nails and watched Castle while getting some blog work taken care of. An afternoon of errands and a Kardashians marathon ensued.
And then it was off to Massachusetts for the rest of the evening! 🙂
Sunday I woke up exhausted as ever, but after a mini breakfast, I got dressed and headed to the gym for leg day. I wasn’t feeling it at all on my drive over there, but once I got to the gym, I was p-u-m-p-e-d up! It actually turned out to be one of the best leg workouts I’ve had in quite a bit of time!
We have 2 theaters in my town; an Imax and an older Regal Cinemas that lost it’s business when the Imax opened a few years ago. Regal decided to play the new movies once they left the main theater for about $3 a ticket, but they recently gave the theater a makeover and now they have ultra-reclining seats! It made Bradley Cooper 100x hotter. We ended up seeing The Longest Ride, and I would now like to add Scott Eastwood to my long list of men I’d like to marry.
Ever gone to a movie with reclining leather seats?
What was best thing you ate this weekend?
