Hiii! I hope you all had a great Mother's Day Weekend! I was back in PA for a few things, and I'm going to break it down in pictures for you today.
On Friday, I drove straight from work in Baltimore to a restaurant in downtown Bethlehem for a surprise 'sprinkle' for my sister, set up by her husband! My normal 2 and a 1/2 hour commute took 4 hours (Ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!) so needless to say I was a bit late. But I made it and I'm glad I did :)
My sister was gifted some really nice things for her second baby, including some handmade items. We also had some delicious food. I ordered giant sea scallops which were phenomenal. I wish I would have taken a picture, but after driving for 4 hours in bumper-to-bumper traffic, I was famished and nearly inhaled them.
Both of my sisters have looked great before and after all of their pregnancies! I hope the good genes carry on for me someday. When this baby is born in June, I will be an Aunt for the 5th time!
Since we were downtown, I had to stop by Vegan Treat after the party for some of this:
Only my favorite flavor ever: CHEESECAKE! I want to swim in a vat of that one day.
The weather all weekend was perfect. 80's, sunny, and warm. Maybe a bit too humid but I'll take that over WINTER any freaking day.
On Saturday, I went out for a 5 mile run around my parents' neighborhood. It's so lovely when you're not training for a race, and you can make your long runs any 'ol distance you want! I forgot to snap a pic so here's a sweaty run from last week:
I felt kind of nauseous during the run, so after I got home I drank some pickle juice straight from the jar! Haha I'd actually never done that before, but I love pickles so it was yummy. I guess Snooki and I have that in common.
On Sunday, I went out for my first bike ride since the Fall. I have a mountain bike at my parents' house that I've had since high school or college (?!) and it's still in great shape! I never knew how long my route around their neighborhood was, so I took my iPhone and tracked it with MapMyRun. It came out to almost 14 miles. Good to know Beanie.
Afterward, we headed over to my sister's house for a Mother's Day cookout where I got to hang out with THIS GUY:
We celebrated all the moms in attendance, including my very own:
It was such a summery, outdoorsy, fun, family weekend and I loved every minute.
To top things off, I caught this DOUBLE RAINBOW on my drive back down to Baltimore on Sunday night. Good sign? Oh I think so.
SUMMER IS HERE! Let's do this. I'm so excited for the next few months!
Have a great week everyone!
How was your Mother's Day weekend?
Is it summer where you are yet?
What does a double rainbow mean?! Double good luck!?
