Scenes From The Weekend

I feel like a broken record, but this was another exhausting weekend! So here’s what’s been going on around here lately….

A Saturday morning run….

    • Thanks! Chocolate and wine definitely help when you have a busy/stressful weekend. Have a great week!

    • Thanks! We won’t be able to see our niece as much as we would like either because they live in Arkansas.
      Yep, its new construction and lawn was sod. We haven’t moved in yet but have been making trips there over the past few days to make sure it gets watered all the time- not fun!

    • Thanks! Its nice to be able to stop at other places when you are out doing errands. It makes me feel extra productive!

  1. Chocolate always saves the day huh? I know things are tiring for you right now, but it will be so worth it :) Hang in there! My weekend was nowhere near as productive as yours, and it kinda makes me mad, but I did have fun doing other things….so thats good right? :)

    • It’s nice to have some weekends that are productive and others that are relaxing, I think! When they are all busy it makes them less enjoyable- although it is nice when you know you got done!

  2. Congrats on becoming an aunt! How cute are those shirts?!

    If I’m running errands that annoy me (going to Home Depot would be one of those, haha) I will make an extra stop and pick something up for myself – usually Starbucks or something caffeine related! :)

    • Thanks! Rob’s sister had the shirt made for us and sent them the week before the baby was due, telling us to wait until she was born to open it!

    • Thanks! Same for us- Rob is still really close to his family but his sister and her husband are in Arkansas and his parents are in Cleveland/Florida. We still see them quite a bit but its going to be hard to not be able to see our niece as much as we would like especially over the first year.

    • Yay for wine! Not sure when weekends started becoming more tiring than the work week, but thats definitely how I have felt lately!

    • Thanks!
      And I think coffee and wine are pretty much required if you survive a trip to home depot:)

  3. Aww congrats Auntie and Uncle! I was my oldest niece’s birthday yesterday (sweet 16!!) and I well remember the excitement when she was born. It was gorgeous here and I ran outside both days. Felt great after that horrendous winter.

    • Thanks! We are so excited. This weather is definitely a wonderful change from all the cold, snow, and ice we had all winter!

  4. Congrats on being an aunt! I hope you had a great run this weekend. It must be nice to be back on the road!

    I did a race on Saturday, so that was my only run for the weekend, but we went hiking on Easter morning, and then for a long walk after dinner and chocolate. It was a great weekend!

    • I wasn’t outside running for long but it felt SO good to be out for a bit! I needed some fresh air and sunshine!
      Sounds like you had a busy but fun weekend!

  5. Congrats on becoming an aunt! The T-shirts are cute. We had a great brunch at Katie and Mike’s, and Louie and his family moved this weekend, so I was helping with the 3 kiddos. Very busy, but great weather! I love chocolate too!

    • Sounds like fun! I didn’t know Louie was moving- hopefully they aren’t going too far from you guys! It was so nice to have a sunny weekend for once:)

  6. Extra stops on errands? If I get the chance to run errands without kids, then yes. I will all of a sudden need to stop a bazillion times for all sorts of odds and ends. Haha! I keep am ongoing to-do list on my phone and whenever I get some free time I just go through as much of that list as possible. Congratulations on becoming an auntie! Babies are the best.

    • The ongoing to-do list on your phone is a great idea. I feel like I have so much to go lately and about 3 different lists that I never seem to have with me.

    • Thanks! And I hope you had fun with your mom! Weekends like that are meant for indulging a bit, right;)

  7. Congrats on being an aunt! So exciting. I am excited for my 4 year old nephew to visit me next weekend. I can’t believe he is already 4 – I have full convo’s with him. Crazy! Yay for also being able to get a run in. Glad your legs are cooperating. This weekend I noticed a pull in my hamstring on my bad leg again. I’m hoping it works its way out before the half. Happy Monday!

    • Thanks Sara! I am so excited to have a niece but I wish we lived closer to them!
      Sorry to hear about your hamstring- take it easy and hopefully it will clear up before the race!

    • Driving around the suburbs it was so easy to stop at other places! In the city if I drive anywhere its harder to make extra stops because nothing is “along the way”. So I have a feeling that my wallet is in trouble once we move!

    • Thanks! I think that we pretty much needed those things with the busy day we had been having:)

  8. HA! If I had to go to Home Depot, I would definitely need to follow it up with some alcohol, Lisa – hahaha! 😉 I always think I know where the thing is that I need and then end up walking around aimlessly, wondering how things have gone so wrong. I love your compression sleeves/shoes pic; hope you had a great run! Thanks so much for linking up with the blog today; congratulations on the new family addition!
    Tara @ Running ‘N’ Reading recently posted…Weekend UpdateMy Profile

    • Thank you! Home Depot is an interesting place. I was shocked that I survived a trip there alone:)

    • This packing/moving stuff is really stressful and tiring! We have definitely been requiring extra coffee and alcohol lately:)
      Glad that you had a great run in some nicer weather!

  9. Congrats on becoming an aunt! I became a (kind of) aunt too, my best friend had twins on Sunday. :) Enjoy!

    And I did run outside both Saturday and Sunday…Sunday in the snow! Will it ever end?? (I’m in upstate NY, so the answer is often no…) I look forward to running without winter gear for a while…although I need to remind myself what this feels like when it’s 90 and I’m melting. :)

    • Thanks, and congrats to you and your friend as well! One of my close friends is having twins this summer- it’s so exciting!
      Oh wow I am so sorry that you had more snow this weekend! I think we all deserve at least a month or two of spring weather!

  10. Congrats on being an aunt, that is so awesome! Even though it was a busy week, it looks like it was partially (maybe minus the packing) fun! I love your compression sleeves, they are awesome and congrats on the run! Any weekend that has good food, drink, workout and family is a good one in my books! Hope you have a great week Lisa!
    Sara @ lifebetweenthemiles recently posted…Weekly Wrap UpMy Profile

    • Thanks! It was fun, despite being busy and a bit stressful:) I was so happy to be back outside in my compression socks/sleeves!

    • Thank you! Everything is coming along- it feels like its been slow but there is just so much to do- we will get it done eventually!

    • Thanks Kelly! My SIL mailed us the t-shirts last week with instructions to wait until the baby was born to open them!
      I like to think of running extra errands as being more productive- even if its more things I may not really need:)

    • Thanks! Hot yoga is the best…unfortunately my PT still doesn’t think its a good idea for me so I haven’t been doing that lately. Sounds like you had a fun weekend, too!

  11. Wow! Congratulations!! I loved everything about your weekend and everything about this post. I’m a newbie to blogging and always looking for ideas. I love this and think this is something I may add to my blog weekly. Thanks so much for sharing! New follower here…:)

    • Thanks for stopping by! Im glad you liked the post- usually I put a little more effort into my weekend recaps but this was a tiring one so a few sentences and pictures was about all I could handle!;)

  12. Love the shirts! :) Congrats! And I hope your Saturday fun was good! Hmm do I ever buy other things when I’m on an errand, yep anytime Target is involved haha :) Have a great week, Lisa!
    Hailey recently posted…EASY dessertMy Profile

    • Oh yes Target is a whole different story:) I always walk out of there with extra things.

  13. Cute PC sleeves! It was awesome running weather this weekend – I’m trying to soak it all in before the summer heat & humidity sets in… :)
    I hateeee packing. One of the worst things about moving. Good thing there’s usually new and exciting things about moving to overshadow it.
    Congrats on becoming an aunt!! I’m about to become a first time aunt myself this June :)

    • Yay to becoming aunts! It’s so exciting! I just wish I lived closer to my niece.

    • Sorry for such a delayed response to this! I don’t think I got an E-mail but I did get the invitation in the mail. Not sure what parts I’ll be going to yet.

  14. Congratulations on being an aunt! That is super exciting. I love my nieces and nephews.

    I can totally related to your Home Depot trip, lol. I felt like I was practically living at Home Depot after we bought our house and I remember thinking that it would be so much easier if I could browse the store with a beer in hand.

    • That’s actually a genius idea! I think it would make the whole experience much more fun:)
