Weekend Update: So Long, January

Well, January is gone. And it was a great month. B and I spent a week in Mexico City. I celebrated my birthday. I did some runs. And now, February is here!

We had a great weekend to close out the month. I spent half the time in Columbus, celebrating a cousin-in-law and her upcoming baby, got in a few runs, enjoyed some seasonably warm weather and even relaxed. Not a bad first weekend back in the country!

Saturday morning started with a 4.78 mile run in Columbus. Actually ended up running TO a restaurant for brunch, which was awesome.

Post-run brunch! Eggs, toast and bacon. 20160130_111712

Then it was baby shower time. We showered Stephanie and her little peanut with lots of love and gifts! Can’t wait to meet the baby in March 🙂20160130_141942 20160130_124343

Saturday night we got back pretty late, so the evening included some fruit and TV watching. 20160130_203748

And by TV watching, I mean watching the Sebastian episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Which was awesome. I’m a big fan of Sebastian Maniscalco and his comedy (B got me hooked on the Pete and Sebastian podcast and we’ve now seen him a few times live).

Sunday morning included ANOTHER outdoor run. That’s right – two in one weekend (if you’re counting). This time it was mid 50s and I wore capris. On Jan. 31. See my new shoes?? I love them!

Followed by brunch at Phuel. Oh yogurt parfait bowl – it has been too long! 20160131_123026

And then a free Starbucks. OF course I had to get a venti because it was a FREE reward! And yes, I’ll be drinking it for a few days because it is HUGE.20160131_142228

And then a little meal prep while catching up on some work.

salads for this week!

Without our usual Sunday dinner plans, we opted for Italian. So Sunday afternoon included some sauce making. And meatball making. I can’t take credit – B actually made the meatballs. But I helped roll them!

And some Mitchells, Arctic Zero and homemade cookies for dessert. Just as any Sunday should end!

And that was it – my last weekend of January. How was yours?

Some questions for you:

  • What’s your favorite baby shower activity?
  • Was the weather warm where you live this weekend?
  • What’s something good you ate this weekend?

I’m linking up with Erin for my weekend snapshot post, Katie for MIMM and as usual, the weekly wraps.

  1. These warm runs are spoiling everybody. I was not unable to even get outside past weekend so I’m hoping it’s nice this coming weekend. It’s been a really long time since I’ve attended a baby shower. Way back when, we used to do crazy games like smell the baby diaper (with melted and smashed candy bars inside). Is it OK to admit I can suck down a venti Starbucks in less than 5 minutes? Yep. Your Italian supper looks scrumptious. Thanks for linking with us Melissa.

  2. i really can’t get into baby showers (is it horrible to say that??) but i like bridal showers, if that counts? 🙂 i didn’t get to run outside this past weekend (treadmill one day, strength the other) but did a 4-miler this morning along the river so that was nice.

  3. I go to a lot of baby showers for fellow teachers, but I can’t really relate. After three years of marriage and my 30th birthday around the corner I always get pressured, “So when are you gonna have a baby?” “You’re not getting any younger.” “Who’s gonna take care of you when you’re old?” I always like the multi tasking games like who can fold a load of laundry the fastest while talking on the phone and holding a crying baby.
