Saturday Update and a Super Long Sunday

This day feels like it has already been three separate days!

I woke up this morning and did a 6 mile run around the canal in 48 minutes and 27 seconds.  That makes for a pace of just over 8 minutes a mile.  I am ok with that!  I really took a hiatus from running as my form of exercise this past week, but I am signed up for the Fort 4 Fitness 10K this coming Saturday, and though I should start logging in the miles.

I then headed to work for a short shift…and forgot to take a picture!

After work I came straight home, and now I feel like a have a significant amount of time to prep meals for the week, catch up on laundry, and tidy up the bathroom.  That’s my kind of productive Sunday.

 

Now, back to yesterday!  Yesterday, Brian and I spent the afternoon at Irish Fest with his family. It was like a typical festival with booths selling crafts and food, but I think that our favorite booths were the Sheltie Rescue booth and the Celtic Canine booth.

 

There were giant Irish Wolfhounds

These puppies were bigger than me!

Brian’s family owns a sheltie, so they hold a special place in their hearts 🙂

Maggie was my favorite…a sheltie pomeranian mix…adorable!

There was also a lot of Irish dancing and music as entertainment.  Everyone was so talented, and many traveled far to perform at the festival.

You can’t have an Irish Festival without bagpipes!

My name!!!

It was a great afternoon with the family!

Me and the brothers

We then walked to a sports bar type restaurant called Champions for dinner.  They had some Irish themed food in honor of the festival.  Brian, his brother Adam, and their dad Greg all ordered the fish and chips (one of the Irish themed dishes), Brian’s mom Kate and I both ordered French onion soup.  It’s one of my favorites, and I love that it is getting to be soup season.

Brian and I then headed out early to get ready for a slightly belated engagement party some friends were throwing us.  It was such a great time.  They had delicious little snacks, a Margaritaville machine, and a great crowd there to hang out with.  So much fun!

I think Brian and I missed the memo on the blue theme...

Now I’m off to prepare some food for the week!  You’ll find out what I make later 🙂
