After working out to the royal wedding, Mon and I were feeling a little slighted that we couldn’t continue the celebration with the royal family.
Name that movie.
This was Friday night, so you can probably guess we watched more wedding coverage. Seriously. It was everywhere…
Well- sort of. It was the last of the turkey leftovers my mom sent back with me from our family Easter dinner. Really it was just a matter of throwing on things that happened to be around. Such as avocado. Jalapenos. Pepperjack cheese. And BBQ sauce.
For dessert, may I suggest almost a half bag of Easter candy?
Not that I would have done that or anything…
Malted milk ball robin eggs… they get me every time.
No wonder why I was at the gym super early on Saturday morning.
3 miles at 8:31 pace. And 15 minutes on the stairmill. My first run over 2 miles in quite some time. Before, anything over 2 miles had left my leg feeling uncomfortably achy. But it’s a day later and I’m not feeling bad. So yippeeeeeee!
And yes, I still have plans to get it checked out. An appointment has even been made. Which is huge- I often will not visit a doctor without being dragged, kicking and screaming the entire way. Like an 8-year-old.
In short, I don’t like doctors much.
After the gym time, I was in a rush to shower and spend the ENTIRE day playing in Wrigleyville with my future roomie, Bailey (by the way, some have asked, and yes she knows about this blog- and has even been included in some of my posts… she’s just as kooky as the rest of the girls on here…).
A few things we learned:
- Our scheduled day coincided with a pub crawl. Awesome because people were everywhere. Annoying because people were everywhere. Getting our first drink at a new place was never an issue. It was when the crowd would suddenly show up and SLAM the bar that caused the annoyance.
- Baby Guiness shots are fun (amaretto and Bailey’s). And should be done in pairs. Otherwise there is no point. Yummy, but total weak sauce.
- Batting cages are accessible in Wrigleyville (at a bar so properly named Sluggers). They are expensive. But awesome.The helmet would not stay on. My guy friend that was with us said the helmet was unnecessary and suggested I go without. I asked if he knew who he was talking to. He changed his mind and said to keep it on. That really happened.
Last year, Mon and I struck out (yes, I said that) on finding some batting cages near we live and had to settle with bowling (still fun!). But nothing beats hitting some balls around.
- There really are places in the area that will serve Busch Light in a can. That doesn’t mean you should actually drink it.
- You can find people to text while on the late night train home. That doesn’t mean you should actually text them.
- Finally, just because you’re used to waking up around 6:30 in the morning during the week doesn’t mean you should on the weekends. Especially when you didn’t go to bed until 2:30 because you were spending an entire day frolicking.
I should lay back down.
If it’s only 8:30 in the morning, does sleep still count for the night before, or is it already my first nap of the day? Hmmm…
