It is early afternoon on Saturday and I am already exhausted by this weekend! Yes, I exaggerate but I have been very productive/busy so far.
I started out the morning running my first race ever. Not including the ones I was forced to do in gym class. Paige ran with me and I learned she is the perfect person to help me keep my pace. It was only 3k but considering I really hadn’t been running a lot, I am not the biggest fan of running to start with, and an injury to my knee last weekend, it was a big deal for me. I am proud to announce I ran the whole thing and finished in 22 minutes and 17 seconds! I could get addicted to this. There is one in April I am thinking about running now. It’s a 5k though and includes a causeway. For those or you asking what a causeway is, it’s a bridge over the rivers (or intercoastal waterways) here and they are the only hills we have. Hmmmm….Decisions, decisions.
After that I did all of my grocery shopping for the week and cleaned our kitchen. Both are big tasks. For the grocery shopping, I made a menu, made a list and then went to 2 different stores. A smaller local store for all of our meat and produce (and 4 bottles of wine), and a large chain for everything else (and another bottle of wine – What? I forgot one I needed for cooking.) And Paige is stalking me and followed me to the smaller local store. All this grocery shopping is good though because it means I will be cooking this week, which means lots of recipes with pictures to come!
As for the kitchen. My Little Baker Man – aka my husband – baked a triple decker cheesecake last night. He is the messiest cook ever but I suppose I can’t complain because whatever he makes comes out so well. More on the cheesecake to come.
This afternoon is pretty busy as well. We are meeting friends for putt putt because the weather is too darn beautiful to be indoors. Later we are having people over for game night. And that is what the cheesecake is for. I will post more on that tomorrow. But I am also making beef dip sandwiches with a kick and the easiest sangria ever. So look for those coming up in the next couple of days too.
