Weekend recap, water spells, just because day

Happy National Just Because Day.

I don’t make this shit up, I swear, I just roll with it.

Anyway, we just got back home from a weekend in Nokomis.  We went there for my birthday and to suss out the red tide situation.  It wasn’t pretty.  I feel horrible because my sister is coming in to town Thursday for the annual family fishing vacay and last year the trip was cut short by the hurricane and this year red tide has reared it’s ugly head.  Cross your fingers it mysteriously gets better…

Charged water spell

I wonder if a charged water spell would work?  Probably not huh?

MacGyver got me some new running shoes for my birthday.

launch 5's

I broke them in this morning.  You can never go wrong with the Launch 5’s.  I love them.  I ran a little over  3 miles in them this morning and they feel so light.  I have a pair of launch 4’s in Nokomis and I ran 4 miles in them yesterday.  I haven’t noticed a big difference between the 4’s and 5’s except that the 5’s might be a teeny bit lighter but other than that, it’s still the same great shoe.

I didn’t really want a cake or any type of desert for my birthday but I was craving an orange creme milkshake from Arbys and they didn’t have one here in Clearwater.  When we got to Nokomis on Friday, MacGyver and I drove to Arby’s that night and guess what they had?

orange cream

I urge you to go get one of these immediately.

Last night before coming home my in laws took me to dinner.   We drove over to their house in Englewood and then we all drove over to Carrabbas.  I know some people like their in laws, some people love their in laws, and some people tolerate them but I hit the in law jackpot because I truly have a second family and I love and adore them so much.   I had a wonderful time and afterward they came by our house for a bit  before we had to head back to Clearwater.  It was a really nice evening and a great end to the weekend.

And then I woke up to Monday.  Don’t you hate it when that happens.

How was your weekend?  Do anything exciting?

  1. I found a running group! I had a great time. The run itself sucked for me. Essentially a pain in my butt and the humidity was ridiculous (and I will run at noon) but the ladies were very nice. It’s just a social group and I won’t make it every time(my schedule and it is far from me) but I’m excited for it. I’ll have people to meet up with at races lol

    Yay for new shoes!

  2. I went to 4 different Breweries….2 on Friday and 2 on Saturday to say my belly feels like I am 7 months pregnant would be an understatement….for some reason when I indulge I bloat. Lucky me. 😉

    (But, of course it was and is worth every sip )

    Sounds like a great birthday!
