Weekend Fun

Good Morning!

First off, a big congrats to all the ladies who ran the Zooma Half Marathon on Saturday. The Zooma Half Marathon Athletes trained very hard to be able to accomplish their goal of running their first half marathon. I am sad that I missed out on such an awesome experience but I’m glad everyone else did great! And a big thank you to the organizers and ambassadors who showed everyone so much support.


I’ll be running it next year :)


I might not have run the half marathon, but I sure carb loaded like I did.

I have been doing really good with my eating during the week. The weekend – not so much. Weekends are always my downfall, but I’m really trying hard to work on it because I feel like I’m undoing all the hard work I put in during the week.

Danny and I had a date night on Friday night. We went to a nearby restaurant called The Lucky Monk.

I wore a maxi dress that I recently got at JCPenney. I usually feel like maxi dresses don’t look right on me, but I love this one.

A little blurry but you get the idea:

The Lucky Monk got really good reviews online and I was excited to try it out. We started with the warm pretzel trio.

The tomato-parmesan dipping sauce was amazing.

I debated between ordering the fresh tossed spinach pizza and the crispy fish tacos. I asked the waiter and he recommended the fish taco.

Fries and rice. Don’t judge.

Unfortunately, the fish tacos were extremely spicy. My mouth was on fire. They were good, I just don’t enjoy spicy foods. Next time, I will definitely order the pizza.

I don’t even want to tell you what Danny ordered. Okay, okay. He got a grilled cheese burger – a burger between two bacon-stuffed grilled cheese sandwiches.

That is crazy. Thank goodness we don’t eat like this all the time. Danny said the heart attack on a plate burger was good, but he wouldn’t order it again. Overall, The Lucky Monk was a really good restaurant and our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and very friendly.

We thought about seeing World War Z, but it started at 9:45 pm, and I knew there was no way that I would stay awake until the end of the movie. I’m like 31 going on 80.


On Saturday, we took the kids to a touch-a-truck and kid’s day event. There were police cars, fire trucks, buses, and construction vehicles for the kids to climb and play on.

There was also a petting zoo that Jaden and I went into. Let me tell you, those goats are aggressive! One goat would chase people around and just grab all the food out of their hands. He scared me.

Jaden loved it. He tried sitting on the ground and holding the baby goats like puppies. It didn’t work. I finally dragged Jaden out of the petting zoo before the goats started really attacking and he insisted on waiting in line to get his hair “done.”

And by done, I mean in a Mohawk and sprayed red…with glitter.

He’s awesome.

Later this afternoon, we’re going to a family picnic with Danny’s family. Have a great Sunday!

How’s your weekend going?
