So I am officially FINALLY on spring break and this first day off has been amazing! I got a lot accomplished and was even able to have lunch with Cody today. We visited Jersey Mike’s and it was yummy.
But wait, I still need to catch y’all up on the weekend, so let’s backtrack.
Friday we had a pep rally at school to launch us into spring break.
Friday night was a much needed low-key night with supper at home and Netflix.
Saturday we woke up bright and early to head out for our Insane Inflatables 5K. Boy, was that an adventure! We arrived an hour ahead of time to check-in and as we were lined up reading to start our wave, they radioed over saying there was a storm coming and we were to take cover.
The rain drops had already started to fall so we headed back to our cars when the rain came down heavily. We took cover under a shelter until it stopped, soaking wet. We walked back towards the race entrance and got ready to go again when they delayed us again. However, after a short delay, we were able to go.
The obstacles had gotten really wet from the rain so they were extra slippery and got us a little (lot) dirty but it was so much fun! I was really proud of myself as I ran almost all of the 5K. I am not a big runner and all the training we did prior to the 5K was in about half-mile spurts. I’m also thankful for Cody sticking with me throughout the entire thing. There were times when anxiety was about to take over but then he encouraged me to keep going. Love that man! In the end, I was so happy we did this together and we look forward to doing it again.
After the race, we came home to get washed up before heading out to lunch with some friends from small group. It was good to spend some time with them and to get to know them more.
We came home and worked on some wedding details, like picking our first dance song. I’m telling you, that is NOT an easy decision to make when there are so many songs that are great and speak to your relationship.
Saturday night we went out to celebrate Cody’s co-worker’s birthday. We first went to Royal for food and drinks. They have a pretty tasty burger!
We ended the night at Home Team where they have delicious wings and tots.
Sunday we heard a fantastic Easter message from Pastor Greg! He taught us about the signs we can receive from the resurrection. This is a graphic Seacoast sent out on Instagram and I wanted to share it with you.
We then decided to stop by Walmart to pick up some Easter treats.
While Cody played Xbox in the afternoon, I watched more Netflix while I caught up on reading blogs and more wedding stuff.
We sat down that evening to a delicious Easter supper. This was the first one on our own, so I wanted to make something nice: meatloaf muffins, mashed potatoes, corn, and biscuits.
We had a great weekend and we’re getting one step closer to becoming husband and wife!!
What do you love about Easter?
As I said last Sunday, we were planning on doing a more healthy-focused week to get ready for the race and to jump start more conscious healthy eating.
Sunday – Cheesy Chicken & Rice Casserole (Mexican-style) [Thanks Courtney!]
Monday – Omelettes
Tuesday – Turkey sandwich, crackers & cheese (parent open house then small group)
Wednesday – Grilled chicken sandwiches & sweet potato fries (little burnt) // Run
Thursday – Out with friends before Phantom of the Opera!
Friday – Spaghetti (squash-style) with ground turkey
Saturday – Burger at Royal // 5K
We are carrying the healthy eating into this week, which I’m really excited about!
