Pardon the delay in this morning’s post. It’s Monday, though, soooo delaying is acceptable, right?
This last weekend was a perfect combination of busy-busy and rest time. We got to see great friends, experience a wonderful wedding ceremony, run loooooong, and relax on Sunday (for once). 🙂 Here’s my Marvelous in my Monday post!
Friday night, we headed north to my mom’s house to see her for her birthday! We gave her her presents, exchanged about 10,000 hugs, and hung out with my puppy Buddy for awhile before heading out to meet some friends for a late app/drink date! 🙂
Blair and John are such awesome friends and we had a slightly belated birthday celebration for me (again!) and checked out a new bar called Plum Lounge downtown Milwaukee. It was pretty cool! We sat around a bar that had fire in the center of it, and purple (plum) lights shining down on us. Very sassy 😉
We headed home for a SOLID night’s sleep before my 16 mile run Saturday morning. Guys, it was TOUGH. But it felt SO good to finish! Patrick even ran the whole thing with me! What a guy, what a guy 😉 ❤
My favorite “stretch” after a long run.
Then we quickly got ready and SLAMMED breakfast before we headed to one of my oldest friend’s WEDDING started!! She’s been with her boyfriend for over 8 years now, so we knew it was inevitable, but I can’t believe the day actually came! I’ve known Brittany since I was SEVEN, and she’s been one of my sweetest and closest friends, even though lately we haven’t seen each other as much as we’d like. That’s going to change! 🙂 Marking my words now…
Oh and they had a POPCORN bar for snacking! How fun!!
It was a gorgeous ceremony and a really great reception! The food was spot on (and we ate ALL OF IT and then some! After our run, we were ravenous!). So glad I was able to see her and Jake celebrate their special day ❤
Sunday, we CHILLED. Yeah, I said it. We biked to the lakefront to see the USA Triathlon happening, which was pretty AWESOME and that’s a #goal of mine now!
We got brunch with some friends, and headed home for movies and cards. 🙂
Oh, and we devoured some more of that leftover duck from last week. YUMM!
It was seriously a fabulous weekend, and couldn’t have ended on a better note! Shoutout: Patrick starts his new job today! So excited for him!! ❤ ❤ 🙂
This morning, I ran 3 miles, did upper body work, and loooots of handstands and headstands.
Talk about draining your shoulders to the last drop of energy with handstand work after lifting!
Hope you all have an amazing Monday! And make it Marvelous! 🙂 ❤
