What a lovely weekend! This weekend it was my special gentleman's turn to travel, so instead of driving to Michigan I stayed in Indiana and he came to me! On Friday night we celebrated the three year anniversary of our first date with a delicious dinner at Restaurant Tallent. We ate until we were ridiculously stuffed, and everything we ordered was completely wonderful. Since we have been traveling so much we hadn't been back to Tallent since we had our wedding reception there -- it was fun to be reminded of that celebration.
On Saturday we had a relaxing day -- I did a bunch of cooking. It's going to be a busy week, so I wanted to get some cooking from The Book out of the way this weekend. Then on Saturday night we went over to Mike and Teresa's to celebrate Mike's birthday. They grilled tons of delicious meat, and we had another huge meal! It was really fun. Hamburgers, lamb, guacamole, beer, ice cream cake... Yum!!
After a weekend of eating, this morning we went for a long run. I cut back to 16 miles this week (I wasn't in the mood for another 20 miler this weekend). The run went really well. It's hot here, but 16 miles still felt pretty easy, and even at the end I wasn't suffering too much. It gives me hope that in a month and a half I will be able to make it 26.2! After my long run I ate some Taco Bell, took a shower, and then a nap. We ate another big dinner tonight -- this time one we made ourselves: chicken club sandwiches and shrimp dumplings.
Now I am feeling refreshed and ready for the week ahead!
