Our First Overnight Guest

Hello! How’s your weekend so far? Even though yesterday was fairly grey and it rained most of the day, overall it was pretty good. Right now the sun is shining so I have my fingers crossed it’ll stay out for a while. Have a great day 🙂

On Saturdays, I have an alarm set for 6 am so I can get up an run. Apparently my body was done sleeping at 5:38 am since that’s when I woke up. I laid in bed a bit before deciding to just get up and run. It was raining again so I made sure to grab a hat and I’m so glad I did! For some reason, my watch said my first mile was a 7:58 which made no sense since I don’t think it was even a mile and I definitely wasn’t going that fast. The rest of the run was pretty good despite being wet. I ended up with 4 miles at a 9:09 average pace.

When I got home, I quickly turned on the Royal Wedding coverage to watch while I stretched and foam rolled. What did you guys think of Meghan’s dress? To be honest, I thought it was too simple! Now I know there are most likely rules regarding what they can wearing but Kate’s dress had lace when she married William. While watching, I was texting my mom all of my thoughts because I figured she was watching as well. We chatted back and forth. My baking skills need some work though because did you see the cake? Can you say gorgeous?

Chinese Takeout

For whatever reason, I wasn’t really hungry so I didn’t eat breakfast. It’s not worth it to make yourself eat if you aren’t hungry in my opinion. I ran a few errands before coming home to shower. Since it was raining still, I didn’t want to get dry and warm before heading back out so why not rock the post run look out haha. By the time I was home and showered though I was hungry so leftover Chinese for lunch was perfect.

I spent most of the afternoon reading on the couch. I feel like I’m at this really juicy part in the book now. If you enjoy historical fiction and novels that involve telling two different stories then you need to pick up Cathy Gohlke’s Secrets She Kept.

Brownies

In the late afternoon, we ended to Alex’s parents house to pick up his twin sister Tory. She was coming to spend the night and is actually the first person we’ve had stay the night since we’ve been in this apartment! When we were driving back, I asked if she wanted to bake and she agreed. Tory picked a brownie recipe out and we got to work. The brownies smelled so good while they cooked and it was hard to not cut into them straight from the oven but we waited until after dinner.

Spaghetti and Meatballs

For dinner, we made spaghetti and meatballs. I use the frozen meatballs from Trader Joe’s and they are so good. I pop them right into the oven while frozen and let them bake for 30 minutes. While those were heating up, I made the noodles for us. In my bowl, I added marinara sauce, some cheese and fresh basil to it. Dinner was so tasty and perfect for a grey day!

After dinner, we all cleaned up and decided to watch a movie. We all decided on the recent Jungle Book movie. While it started, we all had some dessert. They turned out delicious and we all ended up having two. It was pretty good but I felt like little kids would find it kind of scary since the animals are more realistic than a carton. Overall it was good but I can’t compare to the original since I don’t know if I’ve ever seen it. Once the movie was over, we all got ready for bed.

Question of the day: Did you watch the Royal Wedding?

  1. I watched the wedding too. I thought the dress was a little simple too, but the classic lines were gorgeous and the veil did make up for it a little. I wasn’t too surprised though because I heard her say she really liked the plain Kennedy dress.
    Glad you had a good weekend.

  3. I so agree that Meghan’s dress was too simple. I loved her night reception dress, though. OK, that pasta looks delicious. Now I’m hungry.

    1. Again I’m sure there’s rules on what is/isn’t allowed on a royal wedding dress and Meghan probably didn’t want to be too “Hollywood” but still. Me too! I thought that was gorgeous! But it could also be that it’s more the style of it I enjoy.
