Miscellany Monday {Weekend Recap}

Hey y'all,

It's back to the work week and I can't believe how quick the weekend went. Here's what I got up to:

After a busy work day, I headed to the alteration shop to get my bridesmaid dress altered. It was my first time at this shop but it was recommended by the bridal salon. I hate not having the dress in my possession but I will pick it up in two weeks and my stress will go down a bit.
Since I had to be up early on Saturday I had a low key night watching old episodes of the Blacklist on Netflix while I planned out my meals for the week and made my grocery list.

5:30am. Yep, I got up super early on Saturday morning to meet up with a friend and drive to Asheboro to the NC Zoo for the Run Wild 5K. It was hot but it was fun to run through the zoo-we saw Zebras and Lions when going through the course.
CB, me and MM.
After the run, CB and I decided to stick around and visit the zoo (you got a ticket in your race packet) and wander through all the exhibits. Our favorite part of the day though was doing the Giraffe Deck. For $2 we got to feed the giraffes! Giraffes are my favorite land animal and feeding four giraffes some romaine lettuce was the highlight of the day. CB has most of the photos on her phone but I can't wait to see them!
All the Romaine! This is Leah.
Meet Jack
The rest of the day after we got back around 2pm was spent relaxing before heading to church, dinner to celebrate SJ's 30th birthday and then watching Jurassic Park with our group at SJ's house. It was a long day but so much fun!

I decided to pick up my room first thing Sunday morning instead of heading out to yoga. It was a nice way to start the day before I headed out to Aldi and Target for groceries for the week.
When I got back it was time for more cleaning, laundry and watching the Blacklist before heading out to a Barre3 class. It was a tough class, and my first for the Barre3 Anywhere Challenge. I'm thankful for the AMAZING instructors at the Five Points location and I'm excited for another class after work today! After class, I headed home to finish laundry, cook dinner, and prep some meals for the week.
Sweaty Selfie Sunday?
At 8pm, I met up with my small group leader, Sam, at Starbucks and she got me the sweetest gift of the pineapple tumbler I had been eyeing. It was a great 2 hour chat session planning out our lesson for the week and catching up on life.
How was your weekend?
Anything fun planned for your week?

  1. What a fun weekend!! A 5k through the zoo sounds so awesome!! That giraffe is hilarious. We haven't been to the zoo in awhile and I've been wanting to go. I NEED that tumbler! I am obsessed with pineapples this summer!! Is it from Starbucks?!

    Have a great week! :)

  2. Nice job with the 5K! Seems like a fun course to run!

  3. I love that you ran a 5K through a zoo! I so want to do that because it combines two of my favorite things: zoos + running. Hope you have a great week!
