No, I didn't disappear, PROMISE!!

Monday, April 23, 2012

Ok, this is the second try. I typed so much and bam, hit a button and everything just went kapoot. Let's see. Gonna go back to Thursday:

Had breakfast with my besties (we meet every Thursday morning for oatbran blueberry pancakes). Yummy! I then went to my sister to help her move from her apartment to a house. My nephew are so excited. A long day with no lunch. Got back to school to pick up my DD and we went for frozen yogurt with our friends. She ended up going to her friends house. Picked up my son, went home for a little bit and then, went to the gym for a spin class. I knew I wasn't going to be able to workout tomorrow, so I wanted to make sure I got a good workout in. Love the teacher and she kicked my a$$. Got home, ate dinner (love the crockpot), showered and then, packed for my weekend getaway with my DH.

Friday morning, we were on the road by 6:50am. My DD took the first shift (5 hour drive to Montery). However, he only drove 2 hours and I got 3. So not fair. Not only that, but he had a 2 hour call which I couldn't listen to any music during that time. Boring!! We stopped off at a bike race that had the most amazing Expo ever. It was huge. I didn't have to worry about not working out b/c we did so much walking. Probably did around 4 miles and we were there for around 2-3 hours. Got myself a tank top b/c it was so hot and I was overdressed. We got to the hotel and of course, room wasn't ready. Had some coffee and then, got the call. Unpacked and just relaxed until dinner time. Met friends of ours that were at the conference, too. We ended up eating at the hotel in a really good restaurant. I don't think I over did it.

Saturday morning, woke up around 7:00. By 8:15, I was out the door with my headphones on. It was so gorgeous out. I just kept walking and walking and walking along the water. I ended up doing 7 miles. It felt so good. I ran for a mile of those 7. Got back, went to the coffee shop and got a banana and a skinny vanilla latte. I think I deserved it!! Had a mini luna bar which I got from the Expo. DH came back around 12:00 and we ended up going to Carmel with our friends for lunch. We had the most amazing lunch. Might have had a little too much, but, I figured the 7 miles i put in made up for it. We walked around a bit, picked up some little gifts for the kiddos and then, went back to the hotel. Took a shower and got ready for pre-dinner drinks at 5:30. I had water!! Dinner was buffet style. Hate those. Basically, had salad and some vegetables. Everything else was YUCK! Some of us decided to leave and went to the bar of the restaurant. We had a great time. Ate a little bit (too much!) along with some drinks.

Sunday, we were up and in the car by 7:00. DH took the first shift (2 hours) and I got the second one (3 hours). Do you see something wrong here?? We got back in time to take my DD to her tennis match. Then, I took my son to the golf store to buy him his birthday present. Yup, it was his birthday. He turned 20! I can't believe I have 2 grown men for sons now. Scary!! We had a very nice birthday dinner (which my DH cooked).

Monday, it was back to regular routine. Making lunches, cleaning up, carpool. Did my own spin class at home. Didn't do much more then that all day. Now, I have to fold some laundry and then, watch some t.v. with the family.

So, that was why I was MIA!! Didn't have my computer in Monterey and wasn't going to try it on my IPAD. I'm back now, so it's all good.

Hope everyone had a great weekend. I can't wait until Saturday when I get to have breakfast with my bestie, SWEETNSKINNY!! Count down: 5 days!!

Until tomorrow-
