11 solid miles this weekend + lots of other fun stuff!

What a weekend! Normally I feel like it flies by but this weekend I actually feel like I got a full two days of fun in. This is probably because I didn’t take my standard three hour weekend naps.

I got in a good run both days. Saturday I did 8 miles (my last mini taper before the half) and on Sunday I did 3 easy breezy miles.

When I was getting ready for my run on Saturday I realized Cecil had chewed through yet another pair of earbuds. Judging by how many pairs he has chewed through they must be his favorite meal. At $29 per replacement, he is winning the award for most expensive cat ever. Also, when did they go from being earbuds to being EarPods?


Saturday, after my run, I took myself shopping. After cleaning out my closet last weekend I realized most of my clothes are all dark colors. I’m sure the reason has to do with black being the slimming color or something, but it’s time for me to add some color to my life.

Even though I got a raise last week, I’m still Jenny from the block and did my shopping at Target and Marshalls.

Whole outfit in total came to under $100. I think it’ll be nice for weekends this spring and also with wedges or flats I can wear it to work too.

Sunday Adam and I went out to lunch, I went running and then we went to a Super Bowl get-together at his dad’s house.


Before the game we all made predictions about what would happen. Adam came in first place with 10 correct predictions and I came in second with six : )

I predicted that Seattle would win, but really that game was so surprising. Definitely have to feel bad for Peyton.

Hope you had a great weekend too! Get in any great workouts?

Does your pet do anything naughty like chew your earbuds or your shoes?

    I love that outfit. I ended up not going anywhere for super bowl. So lame. I don’t have a pet that breaks my headphones but I’ve been though three pairs because my kids break them! haha.

    Cute outfit. Most of my closet is black too.
    I don’t have any pets but my sister’s dog sometimes stays over and likes to chew up chapstick. And once a brand new expensive pair of jeans that I blamed on the washing machine. After I returned them I realized it was probably him!

      Oh no! Silly dog! My cat stuck his claws into a brand new top last week before I even got to wear it, so I feel your pain. If he wasn’t so darn cute he would have been in a lot of trouble πŸ™‚

    That is a great outfit! Congrats on your raise! I too like to bargain shop no matter what. There is no reason not to! My cats do all kinds of naughty things… Christmas destroyed all 6 of our dining room chairs. Jelly is the less naughty cat- his antics are more on the “wake you up 6 times a night” variety. Although he used to have toilet paper parties in the middle of the night and we’d wake up the next day to a mess!!

      Cecil is definitely with Jelly on the “wake you up 6 times a night” train. He loves to get into things around 3-4am. He also really thinks he needs treats at about 4:30am and will meow like crazy and as soon as I stick a foot out of bed he runs to the kitchen. I need to break the habit!

        They are controlling little buggers! Seriously, I may pay the mortgage, but I do not own my house. The cats do.
