Hello Weekend!

Good morning!  Were you up early today, or did you get some needed rest?  I guess I was somewhere in between.

I had a half-day off from work yesterday (thank goodness), and instead of heading home after lunch, I got a massage.  It was pretty awesome.  The massage place is near my house and also dangerously close to our expensive, fancy, health-food store.  I decided to pop in to get the guys some supplies (chips, frozen pizza, and beer).

The Loot

What  I actually got was a little more selfish.  Seriously, I know this is supposed to be a healthy store, but I always walk out with the most decadent products!  The best thing I got was that beer.  See it?  That’s my favorite beer, or at least one of my favs, Sierra Nevada Northern Hemisphere Harvest.  It’s an elusive seasonal that is only sold in large bottles. I can’t wait to taste it; the bottle is a little time bomb in my fridge!

Last night we went out with another couple, and I wore this.  How do you make a Talbots cardi cute?  Wedges + Mini Skirt, duh  🙂

Speaking of beer….. and I got an Old Hickory Death By Hops.  Major yum.  I’m not going to give it a full review here, but I’ll make a few minor points.  Medium carbination, golden amber color, little bite, and hops hops hops and hops.  Yup – that about covers it.

so good

I also ordered a salad.  What???  Yeah – I felt guilty after that muffin, so that’s a hold-the-cheese, hold-the-rice, salsa-chicken salad.  It was surprisingly really good.  I was glad I had some dressing on the side since a few of those jalapenos were pretty intense!

You know what you can do when you order a salad?  Have a little ice cream for dessert of course!  (This healthy train thing isn’t working so well for me…)

Strawberry Sweetness

Moving on… this morning I had a sweaty 4-mile run.  It was so muggy that as soon as I stepped outside I was soaked.  Yuck.  But I ran hard anyway, and I treated myself to a bowl of goodness.  What a great reward for my efforts!

Do you work out on the weekends?  Do you like to sleep in?
