Really! It was!
The day started with a 5k in Annapolis. My official September event. That’s makes 9 months and 8 events–DARN February and that stupid blizzard for throwing me off my goal! Still, if I finish the year 11/12 that ain’t too shabby. I can’t help that we got dumped on with 4 feet of snow.
The 5k was fabulous. I felt GREAT and had a blast running with my friend Carrie. We finished around 35:36. I’m settling in nicely at a 11:30 minute pace. It’s about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes slower than my average pace before getting pregnant.
One question.. WHY do they always have cookies after these things? I mean LOOK at this…
It was Deeeliscious. I had a hard time not eating the other one I brought home for the little guy. I also had a banana and split a bagel with Carrie. Who also happens to share my love of the everything bagel. :)
After the run I headed home and had lunch. Yesterday I experimented on a homemade tomato soup idea using up the plethora of tomatoes I have from the farm. I’m happy to say it came out delicious!
As you can see, the husband and child were having fun making a Fun Fusion. Our latest craft addiction.
Of course I had to make a grilled cheese to dip in the soup. I mean what’s tomato soup without something to dip in it? ;)
Soon it was car washing time. It was a beautiful day so we decide to take advantage. I cleaned the insides and the boy took car of the outside…
Afterwards we played the silly band identification game. Ryan pulled them out and I had to guess what they were. He was surprised every time I got it right. It was hysterical.
Before I knew it, it was time to make dinner. I decided to try and make beets for the very first time. This is why joining the local farm has been
so awesome. I get things I wouldn’t normally buy in the grocery store. Not once have I noticed beets and thought… hmpf.. let’s have those for dinner tonight. But since I got them in the share, well, we might as well!
I have to say.. they came out delicious!
You’ll have to read how I made them and the whole story on GreenLiteBite. The husband’s reaction was priceless. PRICELESS! lol
While waiting for dinner to finish, little guy and I played Mastermind. I modify the rules for him as he’s a little young but it’s still super fun!
After dinner we tossed the football while we walked…
to the park…
Then is was bath and bed for little guy and now it’s Mad Men for Mommy.
A perfect ending to a perfect day! :)
Hope you had a great weekend!
