Saturday started out with a great 9-mile run that restored some of my lost confidence from a difficult tempo run on Thursday.
Swede and I baked Easter M&M cookies while Abel napped.
We went to the library after nap time. The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend is the current favorite. Our babysitter came over in the evening while Jonathan and I went out to dinner at Steamworks. This was unfortunately the one disappointment of the weekend as we finished the night with an argument about politics over dessert. Date night fail.
At least there was spinach-artichoke dip.
On Sunday morning we went to church and then visited with my mom. After lunch the kids both napped and I started My (Not So) Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella. Being busy and stressed at work makes me crave light and fun books.
After nap time we had a fun trip to the playground then stopped by the fancy grocery store before heading home for veggie sandwiches (cream cheese, avocado, tomato, cucumber, sprouts) and chips for dinner.

Last week I managed to do my three scheduled runs but I skipped all cross-training in order to sleep in due to Daylight Savings. After a week without any strength & stretching though I felt like a slug, so this week I'm determined to get back in the habit of waking up early to get it done.
My mom's birthday is on Thursday (Happy Birthday Mom!) but otherwise it's a quiet week.
That's all! Did you have a nice weekend? Anything fun coming up this week?
