Friday, we had a very low key evening. M made us a tasty recipe for quinoa burgers for dinner, then we watched Say Yes to the Dress and other random stuff.
Saturday, I was up at 5:30AM to catch a train to go run the NYRR Jingle Bell Jog. This was my first race post-injury, yet the last race of the year. I ran the 4 miles in 36:57 (aka 9:15 average pace), which is much faster than I thought considering I have just been getting back into the groove of running.
|pre-race...yes, I ran with my neon jacket tied around my waist|
After the race, I headed back to Grand Central to meet up with BSK and her husband. I always get a bundle of nerves right before meeting someone new, but it was like we had just not seen each other in a long time. BSK and I became blog friends early on. I think she was actually one of the first people that I started to text with, so it was cool to finally meet in person after almost 2 years. We laughed and chatted, took pictures, then said goodbye. I really hope that I can go down to Florida to visit her and her hubby!
The rest of Saturday was spent Christmas shopping, but not buying anything, then date night followed by Finding Nemo in 3D. I was falling asleep on the couch though so we just went to bed.
Sunday was pretty typical for us. We took Louie to play at the beach in the rain, helped my Dad and uncle with yard work, grocery shopped then I baked two different batches of cookies and M cooked dinner. We finished the day watching the Giants win, only to hit a bloody bump in the evening.

See, Louie doesn't like to get his nails clipped....at all. So we kind of have to sneak attack when clipping them. Unfortunately, I clipped too short and got the quick. Cue blood everywhere. It wasn't an easy evening after that because I felt so guilty for cutting it too short, but there's nothing we can do now except wait for it to heal.

And that was the weekend. Overall, I would say that it was a really good weekend. How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?
