On Friday night we stayed in and made one of "go to" fast/healthy recipes: Southwestern Chicken and Rice Skillet. It's so good and so easy. After dinner we watched the movie Interstellar which confused the heck out of me. Even Phil did not really understand what was going on. While we were watching the movie, we had the company of the kitty that Phil is pet sitting for. I guess Phil is building a reputation as an excellent pet sitter! He'll be taking care of Charlie the cat for about 11 days.

On Saturday morning, I did my long run with my club. The weather was absolutely perfect so I really enjoyed this run. I ended up running 13 miles. I have a half marathon in about 2 weeks so I am glad I was able to comfortably run 13 miles. I don't anticipate a PR at this race but I am glad I'm going into it feeling ready.
On Saturday afternoon, I met up with a college friend for lunch and manicures/pedicures. We had bought a groupon deal for a salon that neither of us had been to. It was fun to get together with my friend but there was only one person working at the salon (weird, right?) so it was kind of a long process. But that just gave us extra time to catch up!

Sunday morning was a beautiful morning. It's days like this where I especially love my view. Condo/high rise living isn't a forever home for me but it definitely suits my lifestyle right now and I'm so thankful that I live in a unit with such a spectacular view!
That morning, I met up with Allison and Marisa for brunch. We went to a spot in my neighborhood so I was able to walk there which was nice. It was fun to catch up with them!
On Sunday afternoon, I took advantage of the beautiful weather and went for a nice long walk in my neighborhood. I go for a lot of runs in my neighborhood but it was nice to take a walk for a change. It was great to get some fresh air and feel the warmth of the sun.
Sunday evening was all about video chats. First I had a baby shower video chat for my friend Lauren who is expecting in May. Then after that I had my family book club chat - we discussed Everything I Never Told You which we all enjoyed.
It was fun, full weekend but I am feeling a bit tired as I start this week. I know this week is going to be a bit hectic with my condo going on the market and having to contend with showings and such. Next weekend is shaping up to be pretty quiet, though, and I am going to try to make Sunday a plan-free day or a minimal-plans kind of day.
How was your weekend?
