Girls on The Go run weekend! The hubs graciously drug himself out of bed at 4:30am Saturday morning with me…we let the princesses sleep in until 5:00 and then piled our tired little selves into the car. First stop, Grammy and Papa’s for a princess drop-off!! The hubs, my sister and I booked it down to Mission Bay because we had not picked up our race bibs yet and were not quite sure where we were headed. Thankfully there was no traffic and we made good time because it was quite a trek just to get to the registration and race festivities area! As soon as my sister and I got our bibs I made a b-line for the bathrooms, which I ended up waiting in line until just before it was time to take our spot for the race. I left the hubs in charge of the camera and bless his heart for trying to capture some good pics (they’re a little on the blurry side)!!Ready to run, but not quite awake yet…
There were lots of “freebies” being handed out and I snagged these, plus a water, to hydrate after the run. My sister and I agreed that coconut water is somewhat of an acquired taste. She’s not a fan and thinks it tastes a bit like dirty feet. The hubs LOVES the stuff and I enjoy it occasionally, but it’s not my first choice for a drink.
Enough with the running, let’s go eat!! We met my parents at The Eggery near Mission Beach to fill our bellies and celebrate our victory as well as an early Mother’s Day.I opted for a spinach frittata with onions, tomatoes and mushrooms. It was so good and just enough to fill me up without feeling stuffed.
I finished off the weekend feeling blessed and loved by my sweet little family! The hubs preached a wonderful Mother’s Day message that left every mother in tears or at least tugging at their heart-strings. After church the hubs and my princesses said the “day was mine,” so what better to do than shop…for none other than groceries and home improvement goodies!
Apparently the princesses had a couple other places in mind as well…
And because she wouldn’t hear of me cooking on Mother’s Day… My little Cailyn insisted that I have my favorite veggie tacos at Chipotle! Two treats in one day, now that is simply unheard of!!
The hubs blessed me with a new “donut” pan (I’m thinking there’s a little hint behind that gift!) and an awesome Crossfit journal. Now I can successfully live up to this (except it looks like I’ll be baking donuts this week!)…
And speaking of Crossfit, today’s WOD is a doozy!
