The Weekend Rundown

Alrighty then!  I've been on kind of a lazy blogging stint all weekend, forgetting my camera at times, not remembering to take pictures at other times, yeah...  I guess I just felt the need to just live and not document quite as much this weekend, you know? 

It's been a great weekend though!  So, I'll try and give you the rundown.


I met Sara and Erin for a coffee and light breakfast at a little cafe.  I'd already had some blueberries and yogurt at home, so I opted for a lemon poppyseed muffin and a latte.

We didn't spend long at the cafe before moving on to take a walk on a riverwalk trail nearby.

Love these girls...

Clyde came with us and led the way.

We have had a lot of storms in the area lately, and we all noticed the damage along the trail.

Eventually, we got to a point in the trail where it was closed.

It was still a great little walk though.

Later, I again met up with Sara for a movie.  We saw Something Borrowed.  I read the book a couple years ago and liked it, so was curious to see how it played out in a movie.

I thought it was very well done and pretty accurate to the book.  Thumbs up!

After the movie Sara invited me to come back to her house for dinner.  Twist my arm :)
We had delicious mahi mahi fish tacos and grilled corn.  Kevin also made this great black bean salsa and sent me home with some!


Sunday I had a movie date with Erin.  She wasn't able to come with Sara and I to the movie on Saturday, so we made an alternate movie date.  We saw a matinee of Water For Elephants.

I actually have a copy of the book, but haven't read it.  I thought the movie was great.  I love Robert Pattinson :)

I attended a BBQ in North Charlotte later in the afternoon.  I brought this pasta salad.


This morning I was actually up bright and early to do a little race spectating!  Two of my friends, Kelly and Michelle were running in a 5K in South Park, and I offered to come cheer them on.  They actually wanted me to join them in the race, but I've only been running about once a week lately, and knew I wasn't in prime racing shape.  I did about 3.4 miles on Friday in about 37 minutes, walking and running.  See, not exactly prime racing condition, considering my PR is more like 27 minutes ;)

Anyway, I was up with plenty of time to get ready and head to the race.  I was on my way, and got about two exits down the highway before realizing I had forgotten my camera- FAIL!  I turned around to retrieve it and ended up getting to the race later than planned- I missed their start.

I actually saw both of them cross the finish line, but didn't have my camera out in time (I know, I'm not going to win any spectator of the year awards at this race!).  They both did an extra mile, which was an optional part of the race, so I was armed and ready for that lap :)

They both did great in the race!  Michelle only missed her PR by like 20 seconds, and the course was hilly.  We headed to Dean and Deluca for a late breakfast.

My spectator buddy:

We all went with the make your own omelet option, and I got one with ham, cheese, scallions, and tomato.

We followed up breakfast with a two mile walk around South Park.
I said goodbye to the girls and headed home to get some stuff done at home. 

I made cookies for Tina's bake sale winner so I can get them in the mail tomorrow.

And finished my book club book.

We have our meeting coming up and it should be interesting to talk about this one, since I know a few of my friends were not big fans of the book.  I actually found it interesting.  More on that when we have our meeting!

I actually think this weekend flew by because of all the stuff I had going on, but it was wonderful to have the three day weekend.  How was your weekend??

You were SUPER busy this weekend!!! I kinda wish I was part of a book club, but I feel like I would be pressured to read a book and that just sounds like school...

Erin @ The Grass Skirt said...

It looks like you had a fun weekend! I am so happy that I was able to be a part of it! :)

Jen said...

Oh I need to check out that trail with you next time!

And I'm glad to hear you liked the book. I think that's what's going to be so fun about book club; we'll all have such different opinions so it'll be interesting to hear!

Sounds like a fun and busy weekend! I though Something Borrowed was super cute!!
