On Friday night Phil and I met up with my running club training partner and her boyfriend at a sushi happy hour. We kind of had to rush to get there on time but it was nice to be home by around 7 pm as I struggle with late Friday nights!
On Saturday morning I woke up to bitterly cold weather. But since marathon training is starting soon, I forced myself to get up and join the club for my run.
|-6F/-22C requires lots of layers.|

and made a batch of granola.

After that, I did my taxes, which is a chore that I really, really enjoy doing. I'm such a finance dork. :)
On Saturday night, I went to church and then met up with Phil at another couple's house for a game night/birthday celebration for me. They had picked up some delicious gluten free cupcakes which was a fun surprise! We had a really fun night together and got to try a new game called Dixit, which is kind of like Apple to Apples but the cards have pictures instead of words. It was really fun!
On Sunday morning I went to yoga and got some things done around my house. I made these banana oatmeal muffins. They are fairly healthy and will make a good evening treat when I am craving something a little bit sweet.
On Sunday afternoon, after doing some prep work for the meal I was making for Phil for Valentine's Day, I headed back over to his place. Our Valentine's Day was very low key - we just stayed in and soaked up time with Oscar. She had been at his mom's for 2 weeks so we definitely missed her (but now his mom REALLY misses her!).

On Monday morning, I woke up to much milder temperatures so I headed out for a run. It was 18F which felt amazing after my -6F run on Saturday! I ran 5.5 miles along a creek and a lake in south Minneapolis. There was a section along the creek that had a bunch of ice sculptures along the path which were neat to see and a fun distraction!
The rest of Monday was very relaxing and low key. I read, went to an awesome yoga class that was taught by my favorite instructor, and watched an episode of Gilmore Girls (I'm almost half ways through season 4). It was nice to end my productive weekend on a relaxing note!
What did you do this weekend?
