why isn’t it always the weekend?

anyone else feeling like that this morning? i had one of those “and thiiiiis is how life is always supposed to be!” weekends of which i’m having a difficult time letting go today. take me baaaaack.

Friday evening: somehow lucked into the company Yankee seats for the second time in 3 days (no idea how that happened but i’ll take it!), and it ended up being an epic 19-inning game against the Boston Red Sox that included a power outage (i left during this, in the 12th-inning) and marks the Sox’ longest game ever (and the Yanks’ longest since 1962). i love baseball, but after 12-innings on a Friday night at the end of a long week, i was tired and cold and wanted to sleep. i’m still glad i was there for most of the game, though! such a blast.

Saturday morning: i finally had my first great outdoor double-digit run in months, as this weekend was gorgeoussss in NYC and i was determined to spend as much time outside as possible. man, did that do wonders for my running self esteem, which was sort of lacking a bit lately, and my overall mental state/happiness level! sometimes a long run along the river on a beautiful day just changes everything.

i reallllly love my new Nikes — they felt amazing during this run, and i’m hopeful they’ll be just what i needed (coupled with SPRING) to get me back into the distance groove.

Saturday evening: saw Insurgent with one of my best friends.

Insurgent_posterif you liked Divergent, you’ll like this one — it’s a good follow-up, i thought, and totally entertaining and keeps your attention. and this boy!! seriously.

Sunday morning: the most gorgeous day everrrrr. i ran 2 miles downtown to meet my girlfriend along the West Side/Hudson River path, and we ran another 3 miles or so, for a total of 5 for me. even after running 12 the morning before, i was feeling awesome. this weekend was exactly what i needed to boost my running morale and get me stoked for Spring/Summer running!

girlsrunlove this human so much! it’s truly an amazing blessing to have a girlfriend who shares your mentality about life, adventures, tomboy-esque affinities, and love for the outdoors, and who makes every experience that much more wonderful. thanks, friend. so glad there’s you. 🙂

we then brunched on the patio at an adorable spot in the West Village that ended up being the absolute perfect chocie: Upright Brew House.

upright their $25 brunch gets you orange juice, any drink off their coffee menu (almond milk latte w/ their house-made almond milk for me — did i mention i recently had to cut out dairy?? — and a chai latte for Al), a cocktail, and an entree. everything was delicious and we plan to return for more post-run brunches in the near future for sure.

i had every intention of working on a presentation for school at some point yesterday, but it was just so gorgeously amazing out that i couldn’t resist meeting a boy for a cocktail on a patio later on and calling it an early night. sometimes Sundays just need to be filled with all good things and not tainted by work!

hence, i will be spending tonight working on that presentation for my Parenting class. happy Monday.

hope you all had amazing weekends!

  1. My question? Why does everything you love have to be in so many damn places at once? Why can’t I have Chicago in Atlanta? Why can’t I have Atlanta and my mom with me in Chicago? Why can’t I be in NYC frolicking with you?
    Why am i married when Jordan Speith is so adorable?

  2. What an awesome weekend and how cool that you were at that game! I love the pic from the run on the West Side. I know just where that is and I was just telling Rock how much I love that area. It is like your own little running world over there. Yay for a double digit run girl. All I can say is you know how to take full advantage of the weekend!

    • womp womp wanna whine…haha alliteration makes me SO HAPPY. #nerdalert enjoy brunch! i’ll have to come to Chicago and brunch with you and the Suz at some point.

  3. Every Monday I wonder why the weekend can’t be longer. I mean really…why can’t society function off of a 4 day weekend and 3 day work week?! Haha…
    Great job on the running! The weather really has been such a relief lately. It feels so good to get out and run 🙂

  4. My husband and I were watching that Yankees/Boston game and could not believe how many innings it went. Those poor guys stayed up WAY past their bedtime. Probably smart of you to leave – it would have been a while otherwise.

    Where did you run those 12 miles – where was that photo taken? Beautiful! The weather is finally spring-like here, which makes me very happy!! Looks like you had a fabulous weekend.

    • are you guys baseball fans too? yes, it was such a long game, i can’t imagine how exhausted they were for their 1pm game the next day! my best friend went to that one.
      i ran along the West Side highway Hudson River path — my path of choice. so beautiful! glad you’re having gorgeous weather, too. 🙂
