Weekend Fun! {a 5k, a birthday and some nephew love}

Weekend Fun! {a 5k, a birthday and some nephew love}

I hope you all had an amazing weekend. Why do they fly by so fast? It Friday, then it’s Monday. Agree?

I’m so proud of my husband for running his first 5k with me on Saturday morning. We ran the Nickel Dickle run in Waconia. The run was a part of the Shape It Up Fitness 91 Day challenge that I’ve been taking part in (I’ll be honest, I’ve been slacking a bit). I pressured my husband into running it with me because running isn’t my favorite and I knew he would motivate me (I wasn’t gonna let him beat me).

It was a cold start, but we did it and it wasn’t so bad. We weren’t speedy, but we had fun. Afterward, the trainer of Shape It Up treated the team to bloody marys. She’s my kind of trainer.

Saturday afternoon I went and visited my super adorable nephew. I loooooove him to pieces. We were super cool in our shades.

Saturday night we celebrated my brother’s birthday at Lago Taco in Excelsior. If you haven’t been there yet, check them out. Good food and cocktails (especially the mojitos, but be careful with them).

Sunday Funday was also “big time lazy ass day”. Here’s how I roll – if don’t get up and get going in the morning, I’m doomed. I will literally sit on my ass all day. I got up the ambition to ask my husband if we could walk to Starbucks (it’s five miles round trip). We drove. That was the biggest excitement of the day except for the Breaking Bad Binge marathon. So, for those of you that ask me if I ever take breaks; yes, yes I do. And, it’s usually an all day thing.

However, after a lazy day I promise myself to hit it hard the next day. So, today is Monday and I was up early for a two hour sweat sesh at Lifetime Fitness, then visited Caribou Coffee to grab a cold press growler. After I refueled, I treated myself to a mani and pedi and an hour walk with my pup. Today was a good day!

P.S. If you are a caffeine addict like me, grab a growler at Caribou. They are $14.99 initially and then $12.99 to refill. Fill it up with cold press and drink it for the next few days.

64 ounces of caffeine!

I’ll kill it again tomorrow. I’m thinking some Haute Barre and then I’m off to get my hair ready for fall at Rogue Beauty Bar. Can’t wait to show you my new ‘do!

Have a fab week! Make sure to check out my Facebook page to enter to win a new fall haircut and treatment from Rogue!

    Jeanna, am I completely missing how to follow you on your blog or is that not an option? Is there a “sign up for this newsletter vis email?” Option?
