Good morning friends. Welcome to another Monday.
We met up with Brie and Sully for a little play date at Imagination Grove since they were passing through town. I hadn’t met Sully yet and he is just as cute in person. It was so cute watching them play on the big slide together. Sully would wait in anticipation for Liam to come down, then giggle when he appeared at the bottom. At one point while running back around to go up again Liam yelled out, “I’m coming for you Sully!”.
After Liam’s dad picked him up, I was off to Lacombe for the Lacombe Half-Marathon. Stay tuned for my race recap tomorrow.
Mary and I went for celebratory brunch and mimosas (which I’m thinking will be our post-race ritual from now on) and then I headed downtown to meet up with Cassandra at Centre Fest, our annual street performer festival. We didn’t actually see any of the acts but ended up wandering to Cool Beans for some coffees and a visit before the storm hit.
I needed to keep moving because I knew if I took time to relax that I’d be done for the day. I hit up Best Buy to treat myself to a new running watch, and then home for groceries just in time to watch the crazy storm that rolled in. Intense, close lightening, heavy wind and a torrential downpour so heavy I could hardly see across the street. It was nuts. It didn’t last long and I was off putting away groceries and cleaning the condo.
I finally made it out to To The Lost, a new cocktail bar that opened up downtown that I’ve been eager to check out for a few weeks now. I was overwhelmed with drink choices but was recommended this amazing beer.
I figured that was enough of falling off the 21 Day Fix wagon (sorry, Brie) and went home to bed early.
It was probably not the best idea, but Mary and I met for our Sunday Runday date. It didn’t go well for me, since I had sore shins from the race and we ended up walking more than we ran. It was lovely to get out and start the day out with some fresh air and good company, even if I should have rested instead.
I went home and took a nice hot bubble bath, did some laundry, meal prep and a bit of blog work before going to pick up Liam. I found out today that his little best buddy is moving to Calgary which is so sad. We had them over for a play date and hope to get as much time in as we can before they go. The boys had way too much fun together, as always.
And that’s a wrap! Another weekend in the books. I’m looking forward to the long weekend coming up and am hoping to find a fun adventure for Liam and I. I originally thought there was a few of us meeting up in Waterton for the weekend, but turns out I’m a month early and it’s not until September long weekend. Whoops!
Hope you all have a great week!
What was the highlight of your weekend?
