Hey there! Hope you had a good weekend and enjoyed the Superbowl if you like football. I’m writing this post on Sunday @ 3pm because we’re going out to watch the game tonight. My mom is a Eagles fan and Adam loves Tom Brady… I’m just sitting in the neutral zone for this one :).
I do have a new vlog from Saturday to share with you today though:

I basically spent all day working on planting some flowers in our patio area.
First I spent about 90 minutes in the garden center cross referencing flowers I liked against the ASCPA non-toxic list, and then it took me a couple hours to get all of the flowers planted because I had to dig up a bunch of roots from old plants that had really ingrained themselves into the ground.
Cecil never goes outdoors, but we have a stray kitten that has been coming to visit lately so finding pretty but non-toxic flowers was important to me.
I ended up going with a mix of Petunias, Sunpatiens, Snapdragons and I can’t remember the name of the yellow flowers. I wanted to get sunflowers but the garden center didn’t have any, and I thought these made for any okay substitute.
I tried to start a small herb and vegetable garden last year and it didn’t work out too well. From what I gather the plants I chose are not made for our always hot and humid climate. If I can keep my flowers alive I’ll have to give vegetables another try!
As for the workout front, I took a rest break this weekend. Although I think pulling roots from the ground was actually a pretty decent upper body workout!

I also haven’t started running again because a part of mywound is still not healed. Basically this cut ended up healing from the bottom up and there is a tiny area where the final layer of skin has not grown in yet. I am being extra cautious about not doing anything to make the area swell up since I just want that last bit to grow in so I can be done with this whole saga.
I haven’t written about this because I feel like a broken record that just keeps saying “not yet but soon.” I see my surgeon again on Wednesday and will get his opinion. If he says it’s healed enough to run I’ll go for a run that night. Maybe by Wednesday the final bit will have been filled in anyway *fingers crossed*.
I feel like I’ve been saying this for months, but it really will be any day now that I can run. I’m ready.
I hope you had a fun weekend, got in a good run, ate some good food and spent time with friends and fam!
How was your weekend?
Who were you rooting for in the Superbowl?
Did you enjoy the commercials and halftime show?
Anyone have any suggestions for other bright, colorful flowers I should buy?
