Hello there, Monday!
Ahhh… what a beautiful weekend it was. I am so happy that the weather has taken a turn for the better and it looks like spring is just around the corner! It was sunny and warm(ish) both Saturday and Sunday here in Maryland- and it’s been a long time where we had an entire weekend of great weather. Greg and I made sure to take full advantage and get out there any enjoy it!
Saturday is a wonderful day. It’s the one day each week that we don’t set alarm clocks or have to wake up early to go anywhere. I am perfectly content sleeping in and being lazy all morning long, and that’s exactly what we did! We finally got around to making breakfast and getting dressed and decided to take the boys out for a nice long walk.
I have to say, there are few simple pleasures in life that compare to walking a dog. I love it.
This photo wasn’t posed at all…
We spent a good amount of time inside during the afternoon cleaning and doing general housework because, unfortunately, that stuff just has to get done. But, we did head back out later in the afternoon to walk around Downtown Frederick for a bit.
We also met up with one of our favorite couples: Sean and Gretchen!
I’ve gotten to hang out with Gretchen three times within the past month- I am one lucky girl!
After posing by the water for a while (thank you for being patient Sean and Greg ), we went to have dinner at The Wine Kitchen. Since it was Frederick Restaurant Week, we had to take advantage and dine at one of the best places downtown! The Wine Kitchen never fails to disappoint, and our meal was spectacular. I’ll elaborate more on that on Wednesday.
Sunday morning was rough. I had to wake up early to teach my 8:00 Spinning class, but because of daylight savings, lost an hour of sleep. Setting the clocks forward always seems to mess me up a bit. The beer and wine that I had the night before didn’t really make it any easier to get out of bed and find the energy to teach. But, somehow I pulled through.
By the time I got home, I felt more awake, but definitely not 100%. I knew that getting some fresh air would help! Since it was another gorgeous day outside, I suggested to Greg that we go for a hike on one of our favorite local trails. As soon as we got out on the trail, we were greeted with these conditions:
Uh oh. We didn’t count on there being any snow up there! Luckily it was only snowy/slushy/muddy in certain parts, and most of the trail was nice and dry.
We had to stop at the overlook where we got married and get a (bright) self portrait.
It was such a clear, beautiful day!
After our hike, we headed over to my dad and stepmom’s house to visit and have lunch. They had gotten a few pizzas and also set up this wonderful salad bar!
It was a very nice way to end up such a delightful weekend.
I am officially ready for spring!
Are you ready for warmer weather? Does daylight savings time mess you up at all?
