Hello hello! Monday again, so let’s relive the weekend. Ryan was up visiting, and we spent the majority of our time reading, eating, and working out…since those are three of our favorite hobbies.
I’m lucky to have found a guy who thinks wandering around a bookstore is a perfectly normal date, so one of our most frequented date locations is Barnes & Noble. We usually play a game or two of Settlers of Catan in the cafe and then peace out to our respective shelves.
I was in the new fiction section on Friday evening and got sucked into The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown. It’s about three sisters from an eccentric bookworm/Shakespearean family who move back home and try to figure out how to live together again. I’m about 3/4 through and, pending the ending, recommend it!
I was so completely engrossed in this book that on Saturday, Ryan and I went to the library (our newest date idea. #partyanimals) and I pulled The Weird SIsters off the shelf and made my way to a cushy chair, where I stayed for the next few hours.
We also went to Sam’s Club for a few things (the most disappointing sample day ever) and wound up poring over the fitness book collection. I found a good one on yoga (still going strong twice a week!) and Ryan looked at one about lifting heavy things.
I’ve been craving little tacos ever since I went to Q’doba with Ryan’s family a few weeks ago and then with Sarah the week after, so we made little chicken tacos…and ate them all weekend. The weird brown mashy tuna-looking blob on the right side is a piece of experimental pineapple banana bread.
And finally…we heard that Pizza Hut was having a buffet special, so we worked that into our Sunday afternoon plans (i.e. we planned Sunday afternoon around it) and took it upon ourselves try every kind of pizza between the two of us.
Saturday: 60 min AMT (2 x 20min @ tempo effort)
Sunday: Ryan and I did this circuit from Peanut Butter Fingers:
We slightly adjusted it by running half a mile (outside) in between each circuit (mostly so I could catch my breath) and did 4 rounds. It.was.hard. And so hot out. Luckily no one else was in the gym, so we got to pick the TV channel—FYI it’s hard to find something to watch early Sunday mornings–so we ended up with The Middle (good) and Spongebob (…).
