Weekend Shenannies

Another weekend come and gone. Is it just me, or do weekends fly by even faster in the summer? I'm pretty sure they do.

I was supposed to have Friday off, but we ended up getting some last minutes patients admitted and my boss asked if I was willing to come in to do their evals...which I obliged, mostly for the brownie points. It was really no big deal since I love my job though.  It was a pretty rainy Friday afternoon/evening, so Mark and I hunkered down and watched a movie.  We watched What To Expect When You're Expecting, which I really enjoyed.  I thought it was really cute, especially the whole adoption storyline with J Lo.

Saturday morning, we woke up to a glorious thunderstorm.  Don't you love listening to the rain and thunder while you're in bed?  I did have to get up and brave the rain though, because I had a very important date!  I met up with the wonderful Madison from Espresso and Cream to talk about my yoga teacher training, which I am really hoping she decides to do. (Hi Madison!)

Once the rain cleared up, Mark and I drove out the the MN Landscape Arboretum, which happens to be one of my favorite places in the Twin Cities.  We went for a hike along one of the many trails the runs though the 1,100 acres of pristine land filled with interesting trees and gardens.  Of course, I stopped for a little yoga.

After our hike, we bought a bunch of flowers for planting!  We planted marigolds in our 5 window boxes, and still have some left to put into the ground.  We decided to make use of our fire pit Saturday night, it turned out to be a great evening for a bonfire!

(Look Orlando got to come outside with us!)

I had to get up early on Sunday to take an "absolute beginner" yoga class for part of my teacher training.  It was a cool experience and very exciting to see a room full of brand new yogis.  I did a little shopping in the afternoon before taking Shay for a walk.  We were about a mile away when the rain started...we both got drenched but he handled it really well.  We had a birthday dinner for Mark that night with my parents at their country club- delicious as always.  Mark and I ended the weekend catching up on some TV on the couch with Orlando and Shay.  Best way to spend Sunday night!  Hope everyone else had a good weekend too!

  2. I love that movie! It's so funny! You got to go on a hike and plant fliers?n amazing weekends!

  3. Looks like a great weekend! How ridiculous was that rain?!

  4. Thanks for meeting up! I'm pretty sure the only thing that could have gotten me up and out of the house on that rainy Saturday was a coffee date. And you totally did a great sell on the yoga teacher training. :)
