Weekend Wrap-Up: 5K Shenanigans!

Hello Monday. This weekend was a blast, and exhausting at the same time! I got my Saturday started with an 8:30am Pure Barre class, which was amazing. After that I went to Luke's Locker to get our race packets and I randomly ran in to my bestie, Whitney, who was picking up her packet too. We then took it upon ourselves to go get breakfast at Jamba Juice and catch up! I came home to the hubby doing yard work.. full-on yard work - weeding, mowing, edging, fertilizing.. he did all of this between the thunderstorms and hail that hit Dallas! Luckily I didn't have to partake in any of that, because it was freezing! Later that night the rain held out and we met friends for a pre-race dinner at Cafe Express and then by 8:30 we were running! I finished the 5k in 37 minutes, which I'm super proud of - seeing as how I haven't been running in 6+ months.. Oh, and running in a tutu.. not so bad until the tulle gets stuck in the crotch area... enough said. After the race, we headed to the bars to celebrate.. Scruffy Duffies is one of my faves.. they have the best Cranberry Vodka in town! They use white cranberry juice and then garnish the drink with cranberries and a lime. YUM!

Fruit and Veggie smoothie... not too bad.

Love of my life!

 Sunday we were SO sore.. We literally stayed in sweats all day, except when we went to get food - but once we got back to the house, the sweats were back on! We went to breakfast at Rudy's and then got dessert.. you know, to celebrate surviving the 5k. Then we napped and caught up on the DVR until about 5. I was seriously planning on cooking dinner and Tyler wanted to go out to eat - I was shocked, but didn't want to pass this rare occasion up! So we tried Fireside Pies, since we had never been. Best Caesar salad, best pizza, best brownie! Yes, we had dessert twice today... Tyler's sweet tooth needs to hit the road!
Sunday breakfast at Rudy's!
After breakfast dessert - totally Tyler's idea! He's been having such a sweet tooth lately.
Fireside Pies is our new favorite pizza place! Best.Food.Ever.

 I hope everyone had an awesome weekend!

Linking up with Lisette.



  1. What a fun weekend! I really need to try this whole arugula on pizza thing. I ALMOST ordered a flat bread last week with arugula on it, but the lady suggested a different one so I didn't get it. I'm going to get it next time in honor of you! Happy Monday friend!! xoxo

    1. It's so good! If you're getting it on pizza, make sure to tell them you want it fresh (after the pizza bakes)! :) I hope you love it as much as I do! Even Tyler's hooked now!

      Happy Monday!!

  2. I need to try fireside pies! Those look great!

    1. Every single pizza that passed our table looked SO good!! You can't go wrong! :)
