Notes from a birthday weekend

Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes and all the congratulations on my big secret.  I had a wonderful weekend thanks to my husband.  It’s probably the best birthday I’ve ever had.  I know that’s a big statement but it true.

Willie took me to the Astros baseball game. It was a great game. The roof was closed and we had awesome seats. I had a really fun time. I’m kind of ruined now with baseball games now because now we’re always going to need to sit in those seats. The Astros lost the game, but they put up a great fight.  It was a great game.

Willie also took me for lunch at my favorite resturant, Fadi’s. Too bad I didn’t eat the food. Since I’ve gotten pregnant, Greek/Lebanese food hasn’t been so appealing to me. It’s always a great idea in theory but when I sit down to eat…it’s never good. I did have some cabbage rolls which smelled and tasted like apple cider vinegar, but after a deep pat down to remove all of that it was all good.

I didn’t eat lunch but I did enjoy some pizza for dinner. Hands down the best pizza I’ve ever had, but maybe that’s cause I don’t have pizza too often.

5 miles on #july4th with @fueledxrunning but he doesn't want to take pictures. Fun times and I'm glad to be out there again. Don't worry folks I wasn't pushing any pace, lots of walking and slow jogs. #werunsocial #webeatfat #july #runner #instarunning #t
Fourth of July was spent runningjogging/walking a 5 mile race. This was the first race Willie would let me do with him. He’s overprotective and he’s watching over me. BTW: Willie was anti-picture on this day. I have no idea why. That’s why there are no pictures with Willie. He wanted to make sure I didn’t go too fast. I was kind of worried about finishing the race since it was a 90 minute time limit.

We finished in 1 hour and 20 minutes. When we started, I told Willie we would finish with 7-10 minutes to spare…and we did. That’s all that mattered and I had a fun time with Willie! That moment will probably never happen again.

I was way tired after we did that race. I spent the rest of the afternoon sleeping and being followed around by a couple of dogs. They don’t want to leave me alone.

I have shadows.

All in all, it was a great weekend. A few days I’ll never forget!

How did you spend the weekend?

Celebrating my 34th birthday

Celebrating my 34th birthday

It’s my 34th birthday! How did I start off my birthday?  By teaching my cycle class, of course.  It’s the best way to start off the day. I’m still debating if I will partake in some birthday cake.  I know it’s a special day, but I’m still not sure. This was my birthday cake from a few years back and it was so yummy.  I’m easily tempted but I don’t always give in. Anywho, today is my birthday!Wow the years are rolling by and so many things have changed.  I was never one of those people who made a list… View Post

Weekend, meal prepping & looking for snack ideas.

Weekend, meal prepping & looking for snack ideas.

I’m enjoying some time off work to run some errands around town. There are lots of things to do plus it’s my BIRTHDAY week. I had to get my driver’s license renewed in person. I haven’t had to get a new picture in a long while because I’ve been able to renew online. This time I had to go in to get it done. I wasn’t there all morning but I was there for awhile. But I don’t think I look much different from my picture, right? I’m not really trying to celebrate my birthday all week but it just… View Post

Today is Willie’s Birthday

Today is Willie’s Birthday

He’s becoming an OLD man, but there’s nothing wrong with that. The older he gets, the more handsome he becomes, he gets a little bit smarter and a whole lot wiser. I’m hoping he has a wonderful day. Birthdays haven’t always been the best or most eventful moments in his life so I ALWAYS want to make the day something special for him. It’s kind of hard to make it amazing when it falls on a Tuesday. If I had it my way, I would take him to California. Wait!?! We already did that. Ok, so maybe we would go… View Post

Happy August! It’s time for new goals!

Happy August! It’s time for new goals!

Happy August everyone!  It’s the start of a new month which means anything is possible.  Start thinking about the things you hope to accomplish this month. Yesterday was my momma’s birthday!  It was kind of a chill day for her.  My  momma likes to celebrate occasions with food which is hard for Willie and I because we’re trying to keep things in check. We finally decided on Pei Wei.  If you’re an old blog reader you know Willie and I use to swear by this place, but they changed the menu.  For me, the nutritional information is a little bit… View Post
