St. Patrick’s Day weekend

Green beer, pub crawls, and festive get-ups?!

Apparently, I’m old.  Part of me says I should be partaking in these activities, like I’m missing out if I don’t.  The reality is as much as I love being festive, I had no interest in the holiday this year.

Friday night, I had dinner with the fam to celebrate the sister’s birthday. Crab cakes, homemade mac & cheese, wine, and cake. Fun night with the fam and I was home before 11. Doesn’t get much better than that.

Saturday, I was really low key:

I slept in like 11am for absolutely reason
went for an 8 mile run just because
cleaned my apt like a crazy person – vacuum, dusting, the works..
made a bunch of food just to have, like this:  Quinoa Crunch Casserole

have you ever seen broccoli here before? Nope.

good stuff & super filling

Saturday night, JT & I went to the BC-Maine hockey game at the Garden

surprisingly fun given I'm not really a hockey fan. I'm learning..

game followed by beverages in a non-irish bar, typical Sat night style.

It was an awesome weekend. I’m not ready for it to be over, even if I did skip St. Patrick’s Day.

how was everyone’s weekend? fun St. Patrick’s stories?
who was racing?! anyone still do long runs even though their not training?

so so happy its Friday.

a few awesome things about today:

1. JT fixed/insulated/got magical with the heating system in my apt.

20120120-152014.jpgthis is the ghetto, half-ass heater that hates me and refuses to get my apt to an acceptable temperature.

(I’ve had it “fixed” twice and replaced once already, yet I still need a space heater and sleep in my compression socks)

20120120-152022.jpgand this is my fabulous boyfriend, who showed up with all sorts of insulating/foamfilling/cold air stopping stuff, took things apart, sprayed/filled/who knows what else.

and now it is warm.

(warm=happy alli)

2. I am sore, in the best way possible

yesterday kicked my ass and I feel great about it.

3. embracing the rest day

I came to work today with a bag of gym clothes & every intention to do a few easy miles at lunchtime. I’m tired. No, thanks.

4.  pizza & parents

my parents are coming in tonight to hang out with my friends and they’re bringing pizza. Town Spa Pizza to get specific. SO GOOD. can’t wait.

.

5. THESE GIRLS will be here in just a few hours.

(since there isn’t a decent pic of all three of us on the internet?!) 

this might be from 2008, but I love it
