My Laid Back Valentines Day Weekend
Saturday: 6 miles @ 8:20 pace + 2 miles @ 8:00 pace with Ry on the trail
Let me just start off by saying that I am THAT super corny girl. Todd’s normal weekday morning routine is to wake up, have cereal for breakfast, shower and head to work- taking all of 25 minutes. I don’t know how he does it. Anyway, Friday morning he awoke to this:
And was then surprised when he got to work and opened his lunch to find this… (OK, not laid out perfectly like this. Obviously I took this before packing his lunch.)
I hope his co-workers didn’t make fun of him too much, haha. When he got home, Riley gave him her card…
And, since he is a software engineer and writes code and html and css and all that jazz, I thought this shirt was fitting…
The saying is pretty much a “cute” way of referring to one person as being a complement to the other. Told you I was corny! I could tell someone was listening to my cravings lately and came home with these 🙂
And the flowers behind me. We avoided the crowds and stayed in for VDay. We decided to grill some fillets, asparagus and make thick cut potato fries. All of that takes a back seat to dessert though. It’s funny because I was just telling my fellow NUUNaritaville teammates how we make our s’mores over the grill flame, haha. Hey, you gotta do what you gotta do!
SO. FREAKING. GOOD. Our Valentines Day didn’t end Friday though. I searched everywhere for a darn VDay race in our area and found nothing. Are you kidding me? So we made our own family Valentines Day run! Of course we had to dawn our pink and red attire <3
We went to the trail by our house (which, if you’re a new reader, isn’t really a trail, it’s paved, but is called The Upper Tampa Bay Trail, so that’s how I refer to it) and took Ry girl for an easy 2 mile run.
She surprised us and ran an 8:00 pace! Go Riley, Ry! Love this picture, by the way. Look at her ears and our strides are perfectly aligned, haha. Like mother, like dogter 🙂 After some water, we let her try to catch some lizards and play in the bushes…
Thank you mom for making the cake and dad for letting me take some 🙂 I can’t get over how much I love this cake. The cake part is moist and chocolaty and the frosting is rich and decadent, like fudge. MmmMM MMMm.
Sunday went a little like this: blueberry pancakes, walk Riley, lounge around, Publix, lunch with Kristin, Zach’s hockey game with Ashley, grilled chicken and veggies for dinner, froyo. Relaxing and laid back.
How was your Valentines Day?
What did you do this weekend?
