This weekend went by too fast. You know when people ask you on Monday what you did over the weekend and you’re like, “I have no idea.” That’s how I feel, but I’m gonna blame the grogginess on allergies again. Between all the Zyrtec and Grand Theft Auto-ing happening at the moment, we still managed to get some important things done. Like buying a new mattress, and seeing Wavves live on Saturday night.
Sunday was a full day of hanging out and started it off with a run. I didn’t last too long because again, it was 85 degrees and humid. I still have hope that Saturday will cool down for these races *Please race gods, cool the weather for the races!*
Later on I went to REI which is this awesome outdoor sporting goods store. They had Brooks & Nike gear and a ton of nutrition options so I was pretty happy and ended up walking out of the store with 2 different brands of electrolyte drink tablets. They had Nuun (my go-to), but I was feeling experimental so I grabbed Hammer Nutrition Grapefruit tabs & GU Brew Lemon-Lime. I also picked up my tried & true 2X caffeinated Jet Blackberry GU for Saturday’s race and a flavor i’ve never seen before — Cherry Blaze.
We get hungry when we shop. Please tell me we’re not the only ones… Anywho we ended up at a Indian restaurant down the road and it was delicious!
My favorite part of Sunday was definitely picking up a bottle of wine, heading home to relax and watch Harry Potter (the Order of the Phoenix) :). They were selling cookies at the beer store’s register and had to have one. Sometimes I’m demanding, especially when my sweet tooth kicks in. I pretend this is one of those things Cameron finds endearing. The cookie looked better than it tasted, but even a bad cookie is better than no cookie at all. I know, i’m so wise.
