A Peek in Our Week

Okay, we decided to do a peek in our week a day later. I imagine everyone had beautiful weather yesterday and not too many of you were online reading anyway. We're you?

So here goes:

Lacey
Sunday: I had an overnight in Savannah and enjoyed a pedicure.

Monday: I had an overnight in Columbia, South Carolina. I met up with a friend at a Mexican restaurant for Cinco de Mayo.

Tuesday: Ran 2 miles in the evening when I got home from work, then slept for 12 hours.

Wednesday: I was well rested so I ran 12 miles this day.

Thursday: Ran 4.5 miles and then had recurrent training for work.

Friday: Saw the movie "The Neighbors". It was ok, a good laugh. Went to my favorite Italian restaurant in VA Beach.

Saturday: I volunteered for Girls on the Run.

 Many of you know that I have a part time gig as a Disney travel planner. Well, since free dining had come out for Disney this week, I spent most of the week planning vacation for people. I've also been booking people who want to go for Marathon weekend.

Wednesday: Today was my mom's birthday, So I of course took her to the Stay Sweet Cupcakery in town. Oh, I love this place!  It was a lovely day, so we spent the rest of afternoon walking around town and window shopping. This is what I gave my mom for her birthday. What do you think?


I found this painting at the Arts Festival I went to a few weekends ago and I thought it was perfect. It looks just like all of our Labradors.


Friday: I got my workout in this day by helping my husband remove some shrubs from our front yard. They started to turn brown and looked dead about 2 years ago, but we kept trimming them back with the hopes that they would come back to life.  We finally realized they were gonners and pulled the plug ( I mean the roots). They were in the ground for quite a few years, so they had some thick roots on them.

Saturday: We got our boat out of storage and we started to prepare it for summer.  I really want to take Baylee out on the boat this summer but I'm pretty sure the loud sound of the motor might scare her.

Do you live near an airport on the East Coast? Maybe I'll be stopping by in your town this week. -L

Have you ever taken your dog on a boat? How did that work? -M

PS. Don't forget to enter our Shape Up For Summer GIVEAWAY that is going on now.

  2. I had a mixed week depending on how I felt during each day, but I did try the whipped yogurt you suggested. I can do that consistency so I'm trying different flavors.

    1. so you liked the whipped yogurt? Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be as many flavors in the whipped as there is the regular kind. Chocolate is my favorite.

  3. 12 hours of sleep! So nice... I went to bed a little early last night and did a yoga nidra (yogic sleep) guided meditation. It helped me relax and fall asleep so well. I feel great this morning!

  4. My dog is scared of water... I think. She barks at it and tries to bite it... Last summer, we stayed on Lake Michigan for a week and bought her a little life vest to try and teach her to swim. She just looked frantic and tried to paddle as fast as she could to home. Maybe someday she will like water - or maybe she'd rather observe from the boat :)

    1. Oh, our labrador loves water and she loves to swim. I wonder if she would jump out of the boat!

  8. Both your jobs sound fabulous! Hope you can get your boat out in the water soon! I haven't personally taken a dog on a boat, but my neighbor takes his all the time. In fact he also puts him on a Seadoo. Puts a life jacket on the dog, and sits behind him and they ride around the lake. The dog loves it! Sometimes their dog stands on the back of the boat and gets thrown off when they turn it. But he loves it, its funny to watch:)

  9. I hope your mom had a fabulous birthday! My dog Lola is terrified of the water so needless to say, she's only ever been on a ferry boat for traveling. She's not a fan...lol.

  11. I saw "The Neighbors" too and I just thought it was okay. Definitely not worth all of the hype it was getting!! I've been out on a boat with dogs before and they loved it! I think you should just try it and see what happens!! It's fun being on a boat with a dog :)
