Poolside Saturday

It’s a good thing that I don’t do a weekly edition of ‘My Riveting Friday Night‘ posts. Because, well, they aren’t. Call me grandma, but I am so tired on Fridays that I often end up asleep on the couch before my normal weeknight “bedtime.”

I fully intended on cooking last night. But then, that would have required a trip to the grocery store, and that just wasn’t happening. Instead, we opted for take-out from our neighborhood Mexican restaurant. Dan and I usually share the chicken fajitas, he has all the meat, and I am happy to share the vegetables queso.

ImageSeeing that our dinner wasn’t the healthiest of meals, I was eager to get in a good workout this morning. We hit our favorite trail for a 5 1/2 mile run/walk interval workout. While out, I decided that 75 degree temperatures merit a little poolside dining. We invited a couple of our best friends and my parents over and the cooler made its debut of the season!


Reader Question: What has been the best part of your weekend?

Operation Rejuvination

If you ask me, weekends are proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy. After a long week, I was so grateful for the opportunity to relax, go to bed early, wake up without an alarm, and spend time with family. Dan’s dad was in town visiting from New York for the weekend and we were all content to keep our schedule low key.

After our midday stroll, we headed out to dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant. I must admit, I felt a little guilty as we walked towards the restaurant and a runner bolted past us. I hope he burned enough calories for the two of us.

I ordered a coconut-strawberry margarita and couldn’t help but be reminded of the last time Dan’s family was in town and his sister, De, and I decided to have not 1, or 2, but instead, 3 margaritas. It wasn’t until we got up to leave and giggled at everything in sight that we realized how strong the drinks had been. Rest assured that at dinner this weekend, I limited myself to 1 margarita.
