Catching Z's

This weekend was what every weekend should be.

On Friday Dan and I were able to escape the West side at 4:15pm and we headed straight to the restaurant we go to as a reward if we make it home before 6pm. This restaurant isn't necessarily our 'favorite', but it's a checkpoint for whether we suck at life or if we have a good work-life balance. Most days we don't make it home before 6pm and since that's when happy hour ends we use it as our benchmark. We haven't been able to make it for a few months so I'd say we are failing, but it makes the reward SO worth it when we're good.

What's the reward? Margarita's for $2.45!

But what's even better than happy hour after a long week's work? The sleep that comes after filling yourself with tortilla chips and margaritas.

Dan and I, no joke, were in our pajamas and sawing logs by 6:15 pm on Friday night. You'd think we would have woken up at some weird time and couldn't fall back to sleep, but no - we slept all the way until the morning. It was THE best Friday I've had in a long time. I wasn't even mad that I broke my Fuelband streak, the rest was unbeatable.

Dan had to wake up early on Saturday {sucker!} for a double-work day, but I made the most of the empty bed and slept until 9:30 before heading out for a 9 mile run.

After the run any guesses what I did? I napped. For four hours.

The rest I needed this weekend was long overdue and Dan agrees that we need to spend more time dreaming about bunnies than stressing over spreadsheets.

Of course I didn't just lay around, I had to catch up on a few runs to get to my 33 miles by June 10th checkpoint.

Running Stats:

  • Saturday: 9 Miles
  • Sunday: 9 Miles
  • Monday at 4:15am : 5 Miles

I happily wore no makeup this weekend, had the first samples of the raspberries growing in our backyard, prepped my meals for the week and pre-wrote a few posts for you. Nothing like productivity to start the week off on the right foot.

Even better was having the two golden sisters over to visit Sunday night.

What did you do this weekend? I can't wait to hear about it!

That sleep reboot sounds amazing- glad you took the time to rest and exercise! The golden sisters are always a nice relaxing pair to have over, I'm sure :)

aahh... sleep is so good for you. Those long naps that you don't expect and rarely get always feel so great!

Rachel Sedaker said...

Raspberries already?! And $2.45 Margaritas?! That sounds like a good weekend.

I love the "dreaming about bunnies" comment. That's awesome. And nice work on your runs! Sounds like a great weekend. My hubs and I tried out a $4 theater that had TONS of character. Check out Valley Theater in Beaverton and you'll be in for a great time. ;)

Ha-ha we always joke that the puppies are dreaming about bunnies - so we can do it too, right? $4 movie in Beaverton?! Count me in! Thanks for the tip!

Amazing weekend, the margaritas are @ La Carretta on Holgate & McLoughlin from 4-6pm M-Fri! And I know, the raspberries are normally mid July! I'm stoked!

Jessi said...

Always nice to see the girls and sadly I'm ready for another early night's rest - I must be growing? :)

Jessi said...

So amazing to take long naps - especially when my plans for being awake were laundry & chores! :)

Jessi said...

This sleep can too be yours!! Just make 'er happen!
