We spent it on the couch playing with toys and watching House Hunters and all of the sudden it was 11 a.m. and I was still in my pajamas.
Bangs Friend (even though her bangs are pinned back in the below picture) called us to go on a picnic.. That is the perfect Saturday afternoon activity. I didn’t have a ton of time before we left and I wanted to get in 8 miles for the day so I did 4 miles before our picnic (7:35 pace) and 4 miles after (8:30 pace).
How about all of you that are reading that live in a cold place come out to visit us and hang out and we can go running and go on picnics together until it warms up where you live. I will even buy you some Yogurtland and you can get as many toppings as you want. PS it has been way too long since I have had Yogurtland. That is a problem.
Since I chose to run over showering and packing a normal lunch I just threw a bunch of stuff into our bag and called it good. Turkey sandwiches on english muffins… sure…. why not?!
After my second run we had SPECIAL plans to meet with my aunt, uncle and cousin for my last birthday celebration. Having them so close has made moving to California from Utah so much easier, they are incredible people.
My aunt sent me a list a few weeks ago of some delicious restaurants to choose from for our dinner last night and after I saw the menu for Macarthur Park online I knew that it was the place for me.
We started with fried calamari and Brooke wanted some on her plate.
The reason I wanted to go to this restaurant so badly:
I really can’t resist steak and the fact that it came with a baked potato and veggies made it the absolute perfect meal.
Billy had the mahi-mahi and loved every bite.
The birthday dessert that the waiter brought out. Isn’t it beautiful?
Rest day over here at the Jacobs’ house! Sundays are pretty much the best.
Do you ever split up your run to make it easier to fit your run into your schedule? Ever do two-a-days?
Do you have any aunts or uncles that live close to you? Cousins?
Please tell me you had a delicious weekend dessert! What was it?
What is the best part about your Sunday?
