Happy Monday kiddos!! For those of you – like me – who live in the US and are fortunate enough to have the day off from work.. Happy, HAPPY MONDAY!
This morning, I woke up to this:
Ugh.. Pouring, pouring rain. The hourly forecast said rain was not due until closer to 10..so I thought I would be able to get my run in. So far.. it looks like I am going to have to take my work out to the gym.
The thunder and lightning is unbelievable too! Justin slept through it for almost 45 minutes.. I was super surprised because the thunder was legit making me jump out of my seat!
Right now – I will play the waiting game.. and I thought.. DUH you can do your blog entry!
I headed to the gym for another lovely boot camp work out – and did a 3.5 mile warm up on the treadmill.
One of my favorite areas to work is my glutes, hammys, and quads.. and there was NO shortage of that yesterday. We did lunge after lunge, after lunge! There were other moves thrown in between..but it seemed like we broke everything up by doing MORE lunges :). I am feeling it today … and baby it feels goooood.
Later on in the day, we headed down to Justin’s parents house for a Memorial Day Picnic.
There were lots of appetizers/finger foods – chips, dips, fritos, veggies.. I munched on carrots and celery.
Justin’ dug into the taco dip that his mom had prepared!
It was fairly hot, but I was sure to keep hyrdated!
Justin and his dad fired up the grill to cook some ribs, hamburgers, hot dogs, and chicken.
We played a little horseshoe…
Let me tell you a story about horseshoes.
Last summer, Katie, that gal in purple and I dominated in horseshoes. We played our boyfriends and whooped their butts! I don’t know how or why because I had never picked up a horse shoe in my life and had no idea on how to properly toss one. But – apparently this was a good thing – last year – and we beat them in 3 out of 3 games.
Yesterday – there must have been something wrong with the world. Because both Katie and I were horrible. We were okay the first game -losing only by 1 (and I got a ringer.. HOLLA) …. but in the second game, we lost.. and we lost BAD. We scored 3 points in the first two rounds. And NEVERSCOREDAGAIN! Yep. Final score was 15-3.
I am blaming it on the wind. Since I was more concerned on trying to keep my dress from flying over my head rather then concentrating on having pro-horsehoe form! 😉
*Note – it was really hard for me to take pictures of food. I felt really awkward, so I only capture photos of the spreads:
I had chicken and salad.
Okay, I captured a picture of this… and someone caught me!
Justin’s mother’s friend was like.umm you are taking a picture of your dessert? I kind of tried to ignore her and got really flustered. She was 3 sheets to the wind though.. so I think she was more confused then anything else!
I took the keys since I had not drank anything – and we headed home after Justin set off the dinky fire works with his cousins.
Upon arriving home, I had WAY too many of these dark chocolate snow caps…
And now.. I think I am headed to the gym because the radar says it is going to rain for a while long. BOO 😦
Did you go to any picnics this weekend?! If you blog – how do you capture pictures.. of the things you would not normally take pictures of!? Ever have an awkward experience like I did?
