Weekend Happenings

This Monday starts off with a bang for sure. It’s my schools first day with students. New district, new school and new students should make for a fun and interesting week! (Here’s to hoping- more fun & less stress.) We spent a relaxing weekend at home which was filled with lots of sunshine during the day and Netflix at night. 
My thoughts for this school year. {via}

Friday we headed out to an early bird dinner at Longhorn. We originally had plans for 18 Seaboard but I am eating a low carb diet and did not want to be tempted. So we stuck to steaks and salads which ended up being mouthwatering. I rarely eat steak so enjoying a 6oz sirloin was a treat! Anyone else enjoy early bird dinners? I love avoiding the lines and then having time to go for drinks or dessert at another restaurant afterwards.

Saturday morning, I tackled a long run in the heat and humidity with my training group. There are no words for this humidity.  Thankfully, I was able to cool off by the pool with my friends afterwards. It was scattered clouds all day which made for a much cooler day. I appreciated the clouds since it kept the sun’s rays away.  My friend Christina shared her Trader Joe’s sparking water which was delicious. I have never tried it before and it is a steal under $1 for a liter!

After church Sunday Joe and I headed to the Tobacco Trail for a long walk with Charlie. The shaded trail kept us cool for the majority of the walk. We made it 2.75 miles which was impressive for Charlie’s little legs. He loves walking the trails and greeting every person that walks by.

Sunday night was spent catching up on chores and completing the draft for our Fantasy Football team. This is the first time I have participated in a Fantasy Football team so it’s a learning experience. Thankful we are doing a couples league otherwise I would be lost!
