A Fun-Stuff-Friday Mix

Hurray for Friday!  Today’s post is a mini recap of yesterday and a fun-stuff-Friday mix.  Yesterday did not play out as I had expected.  In the morning, my running buddy and I didn’t do our regular Three-mile Thursday.  (We decided that sounded more responsible than our “Thirsty Thursday” meet ups in college.)  My legs gave me a fit, so we only did two miles before I headed home for abdominal work.

Due to the shorter run, I planned to do yoga at night.  Instead, Kev and I met our friends at a park-like place an outdoor concert.  This was my first trip to this venue, and lemme’ tell ya, I plan on returning!  They have low and high ropes courses, mellow kayaking, a slalom rapids kayak course, rock-wall climbing, zip lines, and a bunch of trails.  Did I mention they also have beer?  Good beer?  Oh… yeah, that’s important too.

Dale's Pale: Always a good choice

An evening of jams, beer, animals, and good weather is something I couldn’t pass up.  Sorry yoga.  My evening was even better because I had a sweet potato and a spoonful of peeb (peanut butter) for dinner before the show.  ::Big Smiles!::  I didn’t get a beer at the concert (whaaaaa???), but I appreciated the great selection nonetheless.

Okay… now for that fun-stuff-Friday mix…

First up is link love:

  • CheersBeers has an interesting post.  I too use a “Tiff Cup” that looks like a pint glass but only holds about 12 oz of beer instead of 16.  I love having it on hand when we have a keg or full growler at the house.
  • Beer Runner is another great site.  See… I’m not the only one who pairs the two!  On a side note, a buddy in college completed a half marathon while moderately inebriated.  No, I’m not recommending this or planning on doing it myself, but it’s just an entertaining tidbit for ya.

 Lastly, in honor of the first football game, which is officially 3 months away (9/3/11), here is some Clemson culture:

Clemson Girls Are…

Memorial Day

Photo from Last Weekend

Classy Enough to:

  • rock a tasteful Ralph Lauren bikini
  • enjoy chilled pinot grigio
  • have a love for boating/yachting/sailing

 Country Enough to:

  • rock a cowgirl hat with their bikini
  • drink out of a plastic purple wine glass (safety first when boating!)
  • secretly enjoy cheap pinot grigio because you can’t taste the difference (I’m a beer girl. What did you expect?)

There, now you know a little more about Clemson Girls.  Check the Clemson Girl blog I found for more info if desired.  Have a great weekend!

Weeeeeekend

Get the title?  It’s supposed to be “weeee” like fun.  Weekends are fun, and this one is no exception.  Last night began right after work.  Kev and I went to Wet Willie’s (though no, I did not have one of their famous daiquiris) at a bar and restaurant complex that was hosting one of my top five favorite bands, Fuel.  We got dinner, a few beers, and waited for our friends to arrive.  (We got a great spot on the patio with a view of the stage.)  The band was great, and I was so happy to be there.  It’s like my summer of flashbacks – Eve 6 two weekends ago and now Fuel?!?!  Sweet!

***By the way, though I think Yuengling was a perfect compliment to my American burger, it’s soooooo not review worthy.

I began the morning with a morning run at 7:30 a.m.  I completed 4.86 hilly miles in 41 minutes and 3 seconds.  Woot!  Who knew burgers and beer were such power foods?  I was totally jammin to Pandora too, which probably helped.

From the pic, you can see I’m both happy and sweaty.  Shower time!  Then it’s nails time, hair appointment time, shopping time, and girlie movie with my friends time.  See, weekends are fun times!  Stay tuned for pics tomorrow, maybe you’ll notice the changes to my hair that my husband *always* seems to miss!  (ha… sorry Kev… love you)
