Flying Solo

How it's already Monday beats me, but here's to re-living the weekend. M left on Friday night to head home to grab some things and run some errands up in his hometown, so I flew solo. Fortunately, I know how to keep myself busy, but I will admit that it's way too quiet in this house without his company.

Real convo with M before bed on Friday:
M: So did you carbo load tonight?
Me: If by carb load, you mean eat the entire jar of salsa, then yes.


Friday night for dinner: an entire jar of salsa with Tostito's Scoops. Is anyone else not seeing the "Hot" Tostito's salsa in grocery stores lately? Or is that just here?

Saturday 4:30AM: off to NYC to run the NYRR Al Gordon Classic 4-Miler in Brooklyn. I knew that my favorite Enthusiastic Runner was running it, but wasn't sure if we'd cross paths a midst the 4,000 runners. But we did end up finding each other and having a fun run together.

Saturday 12:30PM: Finally dragged my butt out of bed. Showered, did our laundry, vacuumed, cleaned, ran the dishwasher, made cake balls, played with my new Erin Condren planner, chatted with M on the phone

Saturday 10:30PM: Fell asleep wearing my 'cuse scarf while watching the 'cuse kick some UCONN butt. 10 hours of sleep was much needed.

Sunday 8:30AM: Out of bed, ready to tackle the day. Trip to Michael's for some frames, visited my parents, blogged, watched TV, gym for a bike workout, home to shower, read some more, cook dinner, then paint my nails.

Sunday 7:30PM: M arrives home and couldn't be happier. An evening of tasty food, drinking red vino, and watching the Oscar's.

I'm a happy girl.  How was your  weekend? I tried something different with this post, a.k.a. not writing in complete sentences, but not so sure how I feel about it yet.

Sounds like you had a great weekend! I'm glad you were able to relax and catch up on some sleep! I also like that you weekend recapped in not complete sentences... I totally thought about doing that this morning!

Claire said...

I like your writing in incomplete sentences and your bullet points of sorts... Sometimes it's fun! Sounds like a fabulous weekend! I have the opposite problem of keeping myself busy during the week, but I'm getting better! Xoxo

Natalie said...

How did the race go? I know I try to change up how I post...but not sure I'm very successful with it!

okay I thought of you last week and HAVE to tell you this story. I am obsessed with a morning show here in Austin called the Bobby Bones Show. One of the hosts (Lunchbox) is such a dbag but sooo funny. He always makes fun of people but it adds some light to the show. There was a marathon in Austin last weekend and he was saying how running a marathon would be so easy and why does everyone make a big deal about it. So...they all made a bet that he wouldnt run a full marathon without training that Friday. Well this past Friday...HE RAN ONE! WITHOUT ANY TRAINING! 4 hours 25 min. I was appalled and amazing, I thought he would last maybe 30 min! My knees were hurting listening to the show!

I love hot salsa too, and I've noticed it is harder to find. Sounds like a productive and fun weekend!

I also liked the weekend timeline. It is very organized and easy to read. It is hard to have the boy away but you appreciate him so much more when he comes back!

Val said...

I have eaten a jar of salsa and chips many times for dinner and I love it. : )

Katie said...

Amanda! I can too eat an entire jar of salsa and chips. That just made me smile. :)

Sounds like a perfect weekend! You don't need Tostitos 'Hot' Salsa you need me to send you amazing El Fenix Salsa. It's an institution of a restaurant here in Dallas and they have amazing salsa, I'm almost convinced that it's laced with something to make it so addictive!

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

Sounds like a great weekend! I'm not normally much of a chip person, but if I have chips PLUS salsa... whoa nelly... ;)

Britt @ The Magnolia Pair said...

Now I am going to have to go home and open that jar of salsa now! Got me craving it :) Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend!

HayleyKiah said...

I love that you ate an entire jar of salsa. I ate a whole box of Hot and Spicy Cheeze-It's. It gave me crazy dreams!

Delta Daisies said...
