When I woke up Saturday morning and saw the weather I thought there was NO way that my sister was going to want to go running with me ha. She texted me that she must love me a lot because there are very few people she would run with in the dark, cold and rain. It was raining for all 11 miles but I’m that weirdo that actually really enjoyed running in the rain (***if there was any wind, the story would be quite different).
11 miles @ 8:39 average… My longest run in quite some time. I weirdly felt better than normal during the whole run but I’m guessing that is because I fueled with Dots (<— Andrew thinks I’m crazy for how much I love this candy) and because I was excited for the rest of the day.
When I got home the girls came out with the birthday hats that they made.
And then we did presents and treats:) Well, first a very long hot shower occurred after being frozen to the bone during my run. Oh and I also had to get out all of the snarls from my hair that occurred during the run because I forgot to braid my hair.
PS Andrew rocked the decorating.
Andrew planned a little getaway for us and that was next on the bday agenda. My in-laws came over to be with the girls and I’m pretty sure the girls didn’t even notice we were gone because they were so excited ha.
For dinner we went to a place called Caffe Molise in Salt Lake City and it was phenomenal.
My pasta was so creamy and I wish I would have had leftovers to bring home.
Beck was definitely invited on our getaway too. He is still in that stage where he is so easy to bring everywhere because he sleeps so much or just wants to sit there and be cuddled.
We stayed in a hotel in Salt Lake and it was the first time I’ve been in a hotel in SO so long. Beck woke up at 4 but other than that we all slept so good (and I slept in past 8 a.m.)! We were lazy and watched a movie in the morning before heading off to brunch.
The Dodo. It was so so good. As I was eating I had a random memory pop in about how brunch used to scare me with all of my food rules tenish years ago… If I ever did go out for brunch I would just order egg whites. As I was eating this gorgeous meal below I was so happy to have zero food rules because eating what your body needs and feels like makes me so much happier.
If you ever eat at the Dodo then you simply must get some of their pie too. We brought some home for my in-laws and now I must find a recipe to recreate the blueberry and cream pie that we bought.
The girls were busy crafting most of the time we were gone… aka their heaven.
And Beck was sad that he didn’t get a lot of time with his grandma and grandpa ha.
The rest of the day was spent at home with the crew celebrating Valentine’s Day.
What was the best part of the weekend?
Running in the rain—> What are your feelings about doing that?
