B, FW and I had a busy weekend. Looking back, I feel like we had three or four weekends in one, that’s how much stuff we had! But it was all great stuff.
The weekend started with some playground time. After all, it was 73 degrees at 6 pm on a Friday in February. We had to take advantage of the gorgeous weather. FW went down his first slide (with me of course)! He wasn’t phased.
We ended up going out to dinner and I got a really really good chicken salad. And ate most of B’s fries. Balance 🙂
And after dinner? Again, 73 degrees made it a perfect ice cream night for Sweet Moses! That’s apple cider sorbet and toffee candy.
Saturday was a busy day – the first time I had to relax was at 10 at night! The day started with a 5k. The weather was no longer in the 70s but it was 40 and sunny and not bad weather for racing. BUT it was windy!
Before the race, I was able to meet up with a few of my fellow Skirt Sports Ambassadors from Ohio who were in town for the race. We of course had to get a pre-race skirt sister photo!
Right after the race, we met up with some friends who were in town. They have 4 kids and we all hung out in our apartment for a little bit – FW finally had some people to play with! We then grabbed lunch, but I didn’t get to snap a pic. It’s a little chaotic with 5 kids around 🙂
Then it was time for LCBS (Ladies Craft Beer Society) at Nicole’s house! She had an awesome spread for us.
The theme of this month was lip balms. I made a grapefruit one and a rose one. They were so easy to make! I couldn’t believe it.
I had to leave LCBS a little early because we were meeting up with Dave and Anson and Joey and Lulu to celebrate Dave’s birthday. We ended up going out in Tremont for pizza and beer.
The pizza took a while so we ended up back and Dave and Anson’s house. Which was great, because not only were we able to relax, but FW was able to play with Celia’s toys.
He was out until 10 and playing – much past his bedtime!
Sunday started off with some homemade smoothies (carrot, mango, banana, strawberries and spinach!).
And a few treadmill miles. After Saturday’s race I wanted to keep it easy, but I found myself able to keep running while watching Good Girls Revolt and ended with 5 miles. Have you seen the series? It’s my new guilty addiction on Amazon and I have to watch it while working out.
After that, we walked to the grocery store to pick up some goodies and then I decided to meal prep and make FW some baby food for the week. Using our Vitamix of course. That’s right, it got used twice in one day. Carrots and sweet potatoes will be what he’s dining on this week!
We ended the day with dinner at B’s family’s house, per usual Sunday night tradition.
Some questions for you:
- Did you get in any runs or races this weekend?
- What’s your Sunday night (or other day of the week) tradition?

Looks like a busy and fun weekend! Having wonderful, springlike temps is everything!
How cool you made your own lip balm? What ingredients did you use?
I’m tired just reading about your busy weekend. How fun to meet up with other SkirtSports Ambassadors at the race. I hope the wind wasn’t too bad. I used to cook Sunday supper for the family, but now everyone is spread out and has conflicting schedules. It still happens occasionally though and is always enjoyable. Thanks for linking, Melissa!
So much packed in one week, are you sure this is only one week? 🙂
I am so jealous of your Vitamix I can see how it would be essential for FW and real foods!
I love Amazon Prime and I need to check this series.
