every week should be a 4-day work week. that extra weekend day just makes SUCH the difference, does it not?!
especially when i get to spend my long weekends here:
not a whole lot.
& i was lucky enough to have two of my darling girlfriends come upstate with me as well, for a weekend of alllll the fun, including puppy cuddles,
we had a lil BBQ boating party day on Sunday, which turned into an evening full of all sorts of silliness, including this hilarious board game:
the best line of the night was when one of the boys warned the others “not to look in our eyes” because they’d cave and give us hints. too cute, boys. too cute. 🙂
the night capped off with a game of Humdinger (aka “guess that song” hum version) around a lovely fire while making s’mores by the lake.
side note: please tell me someone out there knows the song “Part-Time Lover” by Stevie Wonder? anyone?
i really couldn’t have asked for a better weekend all-around. i managed to sneak in a lot of running over this holiday weekend as well, so i was stoked about that:
Friday (in NYC before heading upstate): total of 8.5 miles (5.5 in the morning, 3 after work)
Saturday morning: gym session w/ Alex at my gym upstate — 40 mins on an Arc trainer and some abs & push-ups
Sunday morning: 5-mile run outdoors
Monday morning: 3-mile run, 2-mile walk outdoors
& yesterday after work i snuck in an hour of strength/kettlebells/planks before catching up with some friends last night.
all in all, an amazing, balanced weekend that i wish was still happening right.this.second.
hope you all had lovely Memorial Day weekends as well!
Fave summer beer?
