During my recent lapse in posting (since Thursday) it's been very busy. I feel like I say that all the time, but Matt and I do tend to stay pretty busy.
Friday was spent traveling home from Chicago, which tend to be almost of full day. I took the Chicago Subway from my hotel to the airport at 8am, although I can take a taxi I prefer to use the train system. I also tend to get to the hotel super early, but I'd rather be early than late. I arrived back in Buffalo by 2pm, and Matt picked me up. Gone only a short time and I still missed him! We grabbed a bite to eat, then headed home to meet up with the fridge repair man. The fridge is currently working but might need more repairs in the near future.
After the fridge was running again, I decided we should head to Pittsburgh. We were planning to leave super early on Saturday morning, but I figured it would be easier to travel Friday evening. I found a super great deal on a hotel on Hotwire!
First thing Saturday morning we went to IKEA Pittsburgh to finalize our Kitchen!!! Many of you know we've been debating our kitchen remodel basically since we purchased the house, but we're finally in a position to take a step in the right direction. Back in December we went to Ikea and had a consultation for the kitchen, but we needing one more trip to make sure that what we were ordering was appropriate and we weren't missing any important details. Our consultant was great and help us fix some issues with our previous design. We ordered all the products we need and will hopefully be able to pick them up in two weeks!!!! So get prepared for some remodel post over the next two months, we'll hopefully get started with some prep work next weekend. It will probably take us until the end of June to be done, but that's only because we have day jobs and some busy weekends coming up. It will get done, and we can't wait!
After our 3 1/2 hour Ikea day we made a trip to Whole Foods Pittsburgh, then headed back to Buffalo. We were exhausted and laid down for a few minutes- only to wake up 15 hours later. I guess we were more tired than we thought.
Today we spent running errands, planning meals, and getting ready for the upcoming week. We also took some time to hang out at Barnes & Noble, browsing the rack and sipping some coffee.
As you might have noticed I didn't mention any long run this weekend. I was suppose to have one in the plan for today, but I decided my body needed a rest. Tomorrow I'm back on the running train, and next weekend I'll probably do 11 miles. Just over one month until the 1/2 marathon!
Hope everyone had a good weekend!
