Notes from a birthday weekend

Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes and all the congratulations on my big secret.  I had a wonderful weekend thanks to my husband.  It’s probably the best birthday I’ve ever had.  I know that’s a big statement but it true.


Willie took me to the Astros baseball game. It was a great game. The roof was closed and we had awesome seats. I had a really fun time. I’m kind of ruined now with baseball games now because now we’re always going to need to sit in those seats. The Astros lost the game, but they put up a great fight.  It was a great game.

Willie also took me for lunch at my favorite resturant, Fadi’s. Too bad I didn’t eat the food. Since I’ve gotten pregnant, Greek/Lebanese food hasn’t been so appealing to me. It’s always a great idea in theory but when I sit down to eat…it’s never good. I did have some cabbage rolls which smelled and tasted like apple cider vinegar, but after a deep pat down to remove all of that it was all good.

I didn’t eat lunch but I did enjoy some pizza for dinner. Hands down the best pizza I’ve ever had, but maybe that’s cause I don’t have pizza too often.

5 miles on #july4th with @fueledxrunning but he doesn't want to take pictures. Fun times and I'm glad to be out there again. Don't worry folks I wasn't pushing any pace, lots of walking and slow jogs. #werunsocial #webeatfat #july #runner #instarunning #t
Fourth of July was spent runningjogging/walking a 5 mile race. This was the first race Willie would let me do with him. He’s overprotective and he’s watching over me. BTW: Willie was anti-picture on this day. I have no idea why. That’s why there are no pictures with Willie. He wanted to make sure I didn’t go too fast. I was kind of worried about finishing the race since it was a 90 minute time limit.

We finished in 1 hour and 20 minutes. When we started, I told Willie we would finish with 7-10 minutes to spare…and we did. That’s all that mattered and I had a fun time with Willie! That moment will probably never happen again.

I was way tired after we did that race. I spent the rest of the afternoon sleeping and being followed around by a couple of dogs. They don’t want to leave me alone.

I have shadows.

All in all, it was a great weekend. A few days I’ll never forget!

How did you spend the weekend?
