On Friday night I found out that the side swipe repairs were done so I was able to pick up my car that night after work. I was actually a little bit disappointed that the repairs were done so quickly as I was kind of enjoying driving the rental car which was newer. But my good old 2003 Accord with 170,000 miles on it is still in fine shape and I'll take driving an older car over a car payment!! That night Phil and I made dinner and watched part of Up in the Air together (which I had already seen). He finished it on his own as I went to bed early since I had a big run the following day.

|22 miles on deck, but first, coffee.|
|22 miles = done!! Gotta love all of the pink/purple I am sporting!|
After the run, I dashed home and got ready super fast (26 minutes!) and headed to my friend's baby shower. I was nearly 2 hours late but I am glad I was able to be there for the last hour. The shower was so nice and there were so many great decorating details! Her due date is about 6 weeks away and I am so excited to meet the baby and see if it will be a boy or a girl (I'm guessing girl!).
On Saturday afternoon I had a total of 90 minutes of downtime at home before going to church. After church, Phil picked me up and we headed to his friend's birthday party. It was fun to see his group of high school friends and the birthday boy and his wife had a baby recently so I got snuggle with her for a bit.
Since the party started at 4, we were home by 8:30 on Saturday night, which I was so happy about as I was exhausted.
I slept like a log that night and slept for 8 hours straight. I can't remember the last time I got 8 continuous hours of sleep. It's been many, many months. Turns out 22 miles of running and a full day of social activities is the ultimate cure for insomnia.
On Sunday morning I was surprisingly not sore from my run. It was a beautiful morning so I went for a short 5 mile bike ride to work out any lactic acid that was still in my legs. I had a quiet morning at home which was just what I needed after the busy day I had the previous day!
On Sunday afternoon I met a friend for coffee at one of my favorite coffee shops. I hadn't seen her since the spring so we had lots to catch up on! After that, I spent the rest of the afternoon doing things like laundry, ironing, grocery shopping and meal prep, aka "adulting."
|A whole lot of basil...|
|Became a triple batch of pesto which I froze for use this fall and winter!|
|I roasted broccoli...|
|which accompanied a dairy-free caprese salad and the meatloaf I made (which was delicious)|
And on Sunday evening, I put my feet up for some much-needed relaxation!!
How was your weekend?
