Holy smokes. So much for Sunday being a rest day around here. We have been a bit busy. Lots to share, but right now since I’m limited on time, exhausted and we have some leftover pizza and wine waiting, I’ve got a fun little dump for you.
Yesterday I did something pretty darn fun.
The bar was all gooey on the inside and a bit crunchy on the outside. I should’ve just eaten it out of the oven warm like that, but instead I smashed it and topped it with creamy dreamy ice cream.
I’m not going to complain though, it was one heck of a snack.
I also made not one, but two pretty mean homemade vegetarian pizzas last night. One with cheese for STUFT Daddy
one without cheese and extra red pepper and jalapeños for mwah.
Same pre race meal like 10 times now. Ha.
Yep we had a very early start to the day. I ran the San Diego Half Marathon for the second year in a row this morning and for the second year in a row it was the very same morning when we changed our clocks ahead. How convenient.
Despite the time change, the race went well. It was a beautiful day and the course was awesome.
I really like this race. They changed it a bit this year and I’ll be sure to write up a full recap tomorrow, but I finished in 1:31:47, got 5th in my age group and made sure to do a little grocery shopping.
The family came along so we made sure to hit up the family fun zone there too.
Then we went out to breakfast afterwards to a little local spot, Hacienda de Vega.
Um, why yes, I had the biggest, spicy Bloody Mary ever.
Totally can’t even remember the last time I had a Bloody Mary. It was probably on our honeymoon.
This one was pretty awesome.
I went with the Huevos a la Mexicana.
Andrew went with chorizo (I think, I can’t remember exactly), the boys went for pancakes and bacon.
Yes, I’m always a member of the clean plate club.
There was no resting when we got home. As soon as I was showered and in my recovery outfit, we were on the hunt to find a slide for a certain tree house (minus the tree) project.
Yeah, they said “no chicks allowed”, but then told me to find them a slide. I decided to be nice though since I forced them all to go to the race earlier. The least I could do was find them a slide on Craigslist. And that I did.
And we picked it up on our way to a little party.
A party that I wore that recovery outfit under my pants.
Ha ha ha.
The little shindig was the boys first piñata experience.
They made out pretty well.
Oh, and then we did the slide when we got home. We ALL helped.
It was darn heavy and I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to lift my arms tomorrow.
But, it was a success and we now have one cool tree house complete with a double slide in our backyard.
And friends, it has been one heck of a day.
I’m so ready for wine.
Hope you had a fabulous weekend!
What was the best thing you did?
Yeah, they said “no chicks allowed”, but then told me I had to find them a slide.
