I went grocery shopping on Friday after work because I had a busy day planned on Saturday & didn't want to mess with the grocery store. I got some new items to make for dinner that I'm excited about. I'll post some pictures soon. I got home & relaxed & we watched Hangover III. It was pretty funny, I liked it better than the 2nd but nothing tops the 1st.
Saturday started with a 5 mile run. The first 2.5 miles were rough. My shins hurt in a weird way, I felt like I was stomping down hard every time my foot hit the ground & I was moving fairly slow because it was really windy. I was coming up to my turn around point when all of a sudden, I felt great. My shin pain disappeared, I was breathing great & I felt like I transformed into a gazelle. I have no clue what happened but I went with it & ran a nice & comfortable sprint for the rest of the 2.5 miles. It was crazy. I had taken Fergie on a 1/2 mile walk before my run so maybe I needed more stretching.
We had fun plans for Saturday afternoon. We met up with our friends at a local brewery in Dallas called Community Beer Brewery for an open house event. They were teamed up with Dallas Pets Alive so I was in heaven. People brought their dogs & the rescue had a bunch of dogs that were available for foster & adoption. I got my fix on kisses from puppies! I bonded with Copper who was a Chihuahua mix. So precious.
The brewery was kind of small but they might be expanding. There was a section that was kind of under construction & was being painted so I imagine they will grow. Everything was in one room but it was really fun. They had giant size Jenga & Corn Hole to play. There was lots of local art work displayed & they had a guy playing guitar who was really good. There were 6 beers to choose from & I had 2 of them. You got 3 beer tickets with your admission. I only used 2 of mine & gave my last one to Husband. The beer was really strong & I ended up not eating any of the food (they only had 2 stands set up for food) so I didn't want to get typsy. We all had a blast!

We stayed for 3 hours & then went to dinner at Blue Goose. DELISH!
I had fish tacos & remembered to snap a pic before I inhaled them. Husband & I headed home after dinner to take care of Fergie then went back to our friends house for more drinking & some games. And SMORES! That was what I was most excited about. We played Beer Pong & Flip Cup. I got bored with Flip Cup & moved on to my smore making skills for the rest of the evening.
Luckily, I didn't drink too much & felt great on Sunday. Fergie & I had some much needed snuggle time after breakfast & we got caught up on our shows. Then I did the usual; laundry & food prep. Later in the afternoon I did power yoga & then I tried a new workout. I'll get into it more & show some pictures in tomorrow's post. It's the Nike Training App & it's awesome. Tons of workouts so you can never get bored. The workout I did kicked my butt & I thought I was going to vomit when I finished. I was dripping sweat so bad I couldn't see & basically laid on the floor for 5 minutes afterwards afraid to move.
That is all, have a great day!
