Weekend Update(s)!

Mingle 240
{Linking up with Sami, Leeann, and Meg!}

This was such a fast weekend!

But before I recap this weekend (which will take only a few sentences), I must show some pictures from last weekend in DC. It was so relaxing and amazing. It was just what we wanted: we saw friends, ate amazing food, went to two Nats games, I went for a run around the monuments, and we didn't ride the Metro once!

This pretty much sums it up: Capitol Hill, baseball, friends, and food! 

PS Megan is in a lot of these photos...have you read her blog, Musings and Manolos
Go check it out!! It's such a fun blog!

Now on for this weekend!

Friday started as all should: at happy hour.

I went with co-workers to our favorite after-work hangout (OK "favorite" is a stretch. It's just the closest.) . Then I met up with Andrew at a new bar for us, The Holiday Grill & Bar. We loved it!

However, he kept beating me at Connect 4. I won one, though!!!

Saturday I went to CrossFit where I had a great workout and met fun people. I really like going to a gym that's walking distance from our place!

That evening we went to 90 Mile for delicious Cuban food with some good friends. I love that it's BYO...and Andrew had a great idea to keep the beer cold. After that we walked over to The Green Eye, one of my new favorite Chicago bars. Too bad we were too stuffed from dinner to stick around longer than the Bulls game, but we definitely want to return!

On Sunday I somehow managed to wake up early and make it to Mass. It's always tough to wake up, but Old St. Pat's is worth it! I seriously love that church!

After that we had delicious breakfast and then I went to meet up with friends for a run along the Lake!

I met them north of the city and we ran along the lake for about 4 miles before they turned back up north and I ran home. All in all it was about 7 miles. That's really really far for me! 
We won't talk about how long it took me. I don't care about that :)

I basically crashed for the rest of the day, but we made delicious fajitas for Cinco de Mayo!

How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun for the Derby or Cinco de Mayo??

Glad you are well! Thanks for linking up.

Btw, totally stealing the beer idea! Thanks Andrew :)
