Here is an overview of a whirlwind of the past few days :)
Friday night was date night :) Tim took me out to celebrate my 26th birthday! We went to a local Irish restaurant for dinner then to a frozen yogurt place for dessert! I was super excited about the frozen yogurt because it was one of those places where you self serve then pay by weight at the end. This place is about 2 mins away from where I work and I didn't know anything about it until Thursday afternoon...so of course trying it on Friday was a must! On our way home we stopped by my brother-in-law and soon to be sister-in-law's house! I hadn't seen it yet and we hadn't met there new adorable puppy Remmy! We chatted with them for a while then made our way home to get to bed early to get up and get our exercise out of the way before the 90* temps hit!
I think I may be clearing out of the exercise rut! I gave myself a wonderful birthday gift on Saturday...my best 6 mi time ever! 44:30 with a 7:13 min/mile pace! I have no idea where that speed came from but it definitely rejuvenated my love for exercise! Saturday was a great birthday :) After the run, I came home and showered then took a dress to be altered for the wedding I am in on June 9th! I got yelled at by the seamstress for ordering the wrong size (didn't order the wrong size just have lost weight since Jan when I ordered it!!!) I was treated to lunch by my sister and Mom then enjoyed a delicious chocolate lava cake for dessert courtesy of the best sister ever :)! After lunch, I headed to the Bride-to-Be's house to kick off her bachelorette celebration! We then headed into the city for the O's game (they lost :( ), dinner and a night of dancing at Power Plant Live! She had a great time and was definitely deserving of the fun night out! Can't wait for her wedding in 2 weeks!!!

Yesterday morning, I got up and showered and headed off to NJ for the day to celebrate my cousin's amazing accomplishment! We offically have a lawyer in our family! Yay, Matt!!! It was a long day in the car and I was far too exhausted by the time we got home to do anything. We set out on a walk with Libby (who definitely needed it after being in the house all day) only to be greeted by a thunderstorm...so back into the house we went! We enjoyed what is quite possibly the most amazing thing I have found in a while...Ben and Jerry's frozen GREEK YOGURT! It was to die for! I tried the Blueberry Graham and Tim tried the Strawberry Shortcake. Both were absolutely amazing! I am defintely looking forward to trying Raspberry Fudge and Peanut Butter Banana!!! I was exhausted from the night before and the long day in the car so we watched a bit of TV and went to bed early!
I popped out of bed this morning, eager to begin the Runners World challenge! Run at least 1 mile a day every day from Memorial Day to the 4th of July! I did a 4 mi run this morning to try and beat the heat. The humidity definitely slowed me down though! Hoping that that's not an omen for the rest of the summer! I can't believe how hot and humid it is already! I am excited about the Runner World challenge and about finally having some motivation to get out and do something every day! I will hold myself accountable by writing about it on here! I think I'm all caught up on the excitement of the past few days :) Tim and I may be going to a running store today to get my fitted shoes (my birthday gift from him). But for now, I'm off to enjoy my Memorial Day and a day off work :)! 9 more days of school...not that I'm counting or anything ;)!
Happy Memorial Day!
