Good morning, lovely readers! Did you have a fabulous weekend?
I must say that I certainly did. On Friday, Mr. Smith and I ran 3 miles outdoors! With hills! We were going to run a 2.76 mile route I had created on MapMyRun, but at the last minute...Mr. Smith tricked me and made me keep going til we got to 3 miles. But - I did it! And we still have about a month until the race. I know that by the time May 16th comes around, I'll be feeling super confident with my 3 miles.
Friday night, we watched Twilight. Ladies, I read Twilight a few months ago and thought it was a decent story - nothing ground-breaking, but it was entertaining and oddly addictive. I have seen photo after photo of Robert Pattinson since the movie came out, and I never saw what all the fuss was about - I just didn't think he was that much to look at.
Until Friday. I was NOT prepared for how hot Edward was in the movie! Seriously...what is the deal? Whew. I felt like a 13 year-old girl, for real.
On Saturday, we went to the Farmers Market - not much there yet, because it's so early in the season. But I did snag some great looking sweet potatoes - yum! Looking forward to cooking with those quite a bit over the next couple of weeks.
We also went to the library, where I checked out the most fabulous book - The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova. Have you read this book? Holy moly, it has totally sucked me in. I spent yesterday sitting on the couch - yes, all day long - reading this book. I am just over 300 pages into it and I cannot get enough! I am just dying to get back home this afternoon and do more reading!
I did go to the grocery store yesterday and I picked up some of the Tazo Chai Latte mix. I have heard great things about this (from some of you fellow bloggers, in fact!) and decided to give it a shot. Anything to deter me from a Starbucks run, you know? Anyway, I made chai lattes for Mr. Smith and myself yesterday morning while scones baked in the oven. Yes, scones. Tie a frilly apron around me and I would be Little Mrs. Housewife, right? Anyway - the lattes were amazing! I highly recommend hitting up your area Kroger and picking up some Tazo Chai Latte mix - if, of course, you like chai lattes. I know I do.
What did everyone else do over the weekend?
