Did you know it was spring break?

Good Morning!

Spring Break

MacGyver and I are in Nokomis.  We drove down to Casey Key and the Venice Inlet yesterday to check out the red tide situation but we’re obviously oblivious and boring because we forgot it is spring break and holy cow, there were people everywhere!

The red tide didn’t seem too bad or at least it wasn’t affect our respiratory systems, as it can do, but supposedly it’s bad right now.  (Red tide is an algae bloom, in case you’re wondering and it can kill sea life and cause all kinds of problems.)

Over the weekend I went to the dollar tree with a friend and ran into another friend and we were all talking about Easter so I decided to buy some things at the dollar tree and make a wreath because I’m random like that.

Not bad for six bucks and 30 minutes of time, huh?

This weekend was the first weekend that I did not hit double digit miles.  At first I was a bit upset with myself but then I realized that I haven’t taken a day off since last week and I ran 44 miles for the week so I really needn’t be so hard on myself.

I also looked at my ‘active’ miles via my motiv ring and they were also pretty high.

Active miles

I’d say that’s more than decent.  I’m happy with it.  I’m patting myself on the back and moving on.

On Saturday MacGyver went to an auction and I went to the grocery store but I got sidetracked by a moving sale.  I only purchased two items but they are sweet.

Those are vintage Fiestaware water tumblers.  The original water tumblers from the late 30’s!  I got the red and ivory colors.

Here are the original six:

Apparently they are super hard to find so I think I’m pretty lucky to have even two.  They are in really good shape too.  Did I mention they are original?  From the late 30’s?  I did?  Sorry, can’t help myself, they’re awesome!

I also got a new casual dress last week in the mail and I wore it to the grocery store. I love it because it’s perfect to throw on after a workout if I have to go somewhere but it’s comfy and it was also only 15 bucks.  Apparently it’s a nice dress because the butcher came out and told me I looked amazing in it.

Hank says his track suit is much more amazing than my stupid old dress.

Today MacGyver and I have to go spend some time in the permit office.  We applied for one several weeks ago to replace our windows and the windows are still sitting all over my house because apparently they want more paperwork.  Actually it’s the same paperwork, they just want us to copy it and put it with a new cover sheet and then resubmit it with the other paperwork.

The permit office baffles me.  Can someone find me a shirt that says this?

crazy

 

That way I could just wear it every time I have to go get a permit.

Have a fabulous Monday peeps!

What did you do this weekend?

  1. Cute dress and you do look awesome 😉 I’ve been looking around for run errands dresses

    Today starts my weekend (and short week, only working 1 day) and I closed on my house close to the lake. It’s warming up and I can’t wait to run my new route around the lake or at least part of it.

    What’s the little shelf on the wall by your sink on the left looking at the picture? LOL sorry see above, new house…you have cute ideas 🙂

    • Awe thanks, the shelf is actually a little boat. I put some of my essentials in it to free up space since it’s our smaller bathroom. It also has little pegs on it so I can hang my hair ties right beside the sink. I got it at Bealls around 10 years ago.
