Raining, Napping, and Cooking - Erin's Inside Job

Raining, Napping, and Cooking

Happy Monday friends!

I looked back on my pictures for this weekend and realized that I barely did anything at all. That is just fine with me, but leaves me with a less substantive post.  Friday I asked whether I should go for a shorter run or head to the gym, and the truth is that I did neither.  I did get in a short workout on Sunday afternoon, but it will remain a mystery until I can reveal it next week.

This week will be pretty busy as well as next weekend, so I’m glad that I was able to have some down time this weekend. Tomorrow I am doing a training on substance abuse in Maryland for a civilian group of the U.S. Army, so I am busy preparing for that. I also have to fulfill some almond and cashew butter orders by Wednesday and fit in a 10K this week as part of my training program, so there’s a lot going on.

In order to avoid fixating on that, I will reminisce on the weekend where I had nothing to do.

Saturday

I had already done my 11 mile run last Thursday, so this was the first Saturday in awhile that I was able to sleep in. I woke up at 9 am and had a leisurely morning. Neil and I went to see Guardians of the Galaxy and were greeted by a torrential downpour when we emerged.  Look at this child fleeing for his life:

We changed into dry clothes and ended up falling asleep for an epic 3 hour nap.  We hung out with some friends that night, and that’s all folks.

Sunday

Sunday we met our friend Katy for brunch at Wicked Waffle in Montgomery Mall. I wrote about this place before when I got lunch there, but today I got egg white and grilled veggies on a gluten free waffle. It was delicious.

Bath and Body Works has new fall candle scents out, but I was pretty disappointed with the selection. I love candles from B&BW, but I could barely find any new ones that I liked. They had a whole pumpkin section that smelled artificial and did not fill me with the joys of fall.

After the mall, we went to our mystery workout and then got home around 5 pm. I made some Indian chicken that almost burnt Neil’s mouth off, but in my defense he did say I could make it as spicy as I wanted.  I only had a small amount of this with brown rice so that I could save a lot of it for lunch this week.

Neil had pizza on the brain, so we also ended up ordering the worst pizza I have ever had. We ordered from Bertucci’s and my margherita pizza had super tart sauce, rubbery mozzarella, and NO BASIL. SACRILEGE. At least I had plenty of basil at home.  Seriously though, this pizza was awful.

After the disastrous pizza, we watched a movie and went to sleep. It was glorious.

Question of the day: What did you do this weekend? Do you prefer busy or low key weekends?

  1. That pizza does not look good… I saw Guardians of the Galaxy as well this weekend (but no rain)!

    My favorite weekends are ones in which I am busy busy. I love to pack in day trips, workouts, cooking adventures, etc, all in 48 hours. It drives my husband crazy because as soon as Friday rolls around I’m super energetic.
