Hey there! Still adjusting from the long weekend? Are we all? 😉
Last day to enter my cool Thermos giveaway! A winner will be chosen tonight at midnight.
For the morning after a long weekend, I surprised myself this morning. I set my alarm for 5:00 to run…and I actually got out of bed!! (around 5:07) It was still dark, and even though I told myself I wouldn’t be afraid to run in the dark, I headed to the gym. It’s safe there! I proceeded to crank out a 5×800 training run. Done and done!
Over the long weekend, I got a text from my mom saying she needed a Von Maur fix. This happens about once a month. Unfortunately for her, there’s no Von Maur in her town. Fortunately, for me, this means she visits me at least once a month! 😀 Usually my dad tags along:
When they arrived to my house, I was just finishing up a batch of granola bars for them (Bronwyn, I made double this time:) )
While I didn’t have much luck at Von Maur (just a cute scarf,) my mom scored a pair of her favorite jeans that were on a secret sale! By this I mean, when the cashier (my friend, Stacy) rang them up, they were on sale! Bonus:)
Shopping works up an appetite 😉
Can’t eat on an empty stomach!
We totally thought they wouldn’t be deep fried. However, somehow they disappeared 😉
Yellow Dal for me + some Roti:
It was an ok meal. I’m not a big fan of this Indian restaurant – I like the other one in town better. However, my pop prefers otherwise, so.
We left feeling full and satisfied:)
Still not ready to call it a night, we made use of the last of the day light and played some Euchre out on the patio:
Niko didn’t have much luck either 😉
You guys are goin’ down!
My parents only live about 45 minutes away, so I get to visit with them several times per month 🙂 I’m not sure how I would/will handle living far away from my family…
Well I’m off to go work, work, work! Have a lovely Tuesday, everyone 😀
How often do you get to see family?
