Memorial Weekend

Well this morning I woke up with either a bad bout with the allergies and sinuses, or a dumb head cold, we shall see. I'm hoping it's just allergies though since I've sneezed about 1 million times in the last 24 hours. I'm trying to stay on top of it and make sure if it's not allergies, it won't turn into a cold. Thank goodness for Zicam :) Plus we leave for Bermuda in a week from today so I definitely don't want to feel like crud on vacation!

I started the holiday weekend out right on Friday. I had the evening to myself and sometimes you just need that down time. I decided to go shopping and treat myself to some new summer clothes and some new stuff for Bermuda. I ended up hitting some great sales and did very well. Got some sun-dresses for mega cheap, and some new tank tops, got a bathing suit on clearance at Target for a whopping $7! Wahoo! I also went and got myself some dinner at Chipotle, yum! Over all it was a great night of hanging out with "me" :)

Saturday we decided to have a last minute cookout and I'm glad we did. It turned out really well. We had some cousins over, and friends. I made some new stuff this time. It's nice to try out new recipes instead of the same old stuff. So we had, grilled chicken in Italian dressing and A1 marinade....Tomato, Mozzarella, Basil, Vinagrette salad.....Grilled corn on the cob with oldbay or lime parmesan butter....Buffalo chicken dip (which is made for all parties or else they may kill me, LOL)....and for dessert a fresh strawberry tart. YUMMY!!! Everything turned out great and we had a blast.

We've been really trying to be active outside since it's so nice out. So the other day I went for a 1.5 mile run which felt so good to do! Then I got home and Scott was in the driveway with both our bikes out. I thought there's no way I'm going for a bike ride after that exhausting run. Well I caved and I'm glad I did. We ended up riding 2 miles to the grocery store and back. We got some stuff we needed to grill out that night. Of course the deal was he had to carry everything ;) So away we went on our bikes with our groceries in the backpack. I felt awesome after that workout. My FEV1 meter got the highest reading it's ever gotten too. :) How's that for motivation!? Works for me!!! :)
