On Friday, after I made my weekly Face The Music post, WordPress told me it was my 50th post. I thought this was totally awesome, obviously, since my post included quite a bit of excitement about the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who. Totally unplanned, but totally amazing!
As I said before, we went up to Julie and Dan’s house this weekend to view the episode and hang out. We headed up Friday afternoon when Tara got home from work and just hung out and caught up. Saturday, Dan and I got up and headed to his local Planet Fitness for a workout. He headed in to use weights and I went on the elliptical. It felt pretty good and my knee didn’t bother me too much so I think I’ll use that instead of the bike.
I had a set goal in mind when I got on the elliptical due to this challenge on a blog I love. I thought it was a genius idea and couldn’t wait to join in, so I made sure I hit my 50 minutes!
After the gym, I showered up and all us girls went out for a quick shopping trip to Michael’s and Christmas Tree Shop. Tara needed to buy some yarn because she saw a cute pattern to crochet a “cat cave” for our baby, Flynn. He gets so chilly when the weather gets colder and he LOVES being covered up and cozy with blankies or snuggled up in our pajamas with us. While we watched the shows, Tara was able to make most of the cave and finished it this morning, just in time to come home and see how our little man liked it. He loves it, however Delilah seems to like it more. She likes to declare ALL THE THINGS are hers, so she started attacking him while he was in it and now won’t let him near it! HA!
Once we hit up the stores we needed, we got home in time to make the “fish fingers and custard” for our viewing party. They came out pretty good, thanks to Dan, Julie and Tara working out the dough issue. Made a great little snack to have while we watched. The episode was amazing and I can’t wait to see where it goes from here. Moffat is an evil genius!
We just hung out and had a low-key night after Doctor Who and played some “Would You Rather?” type game Dan found on the iPad. It’s always interesting when you get the four of us together! Dan and I headed to the gym again this morning for shoulders and legs day. I have to say I’m a little jealous because his Planet Fitness is probably twice the size of mine! They have way more machines than we do, but my gym is newer (probably only 5 years old). Oh well! Gotta work with what I got! After an hour and a half or so at the gym, we came home for some pancakes and bacon that Julie made us. We ate, finished packing up and then Tara and I came home.
I had the BEST package in the mail when we got here. My virtual race medal came for the Doctor Who race that I had entered back in September. I think the coincidences are just amazing because it arrived in the mail ON the 50th anniversary. 50’s all around this weekend! Love it!
The winds have been crazy today (gusting around 25 mph) and as we pulled into our driveway at home, we realized our little garden flag was hanging precariously off its stand. As we were unpacking, it flew off but luckily got caught up in our holly bush. Not so luckily, we realized we had no power when we walked inside. While I was checking my cell phone to report the outage to National Grid, our neighbor called Tara’s cell phone to let her know about the power and to see if we had any. He said it had been out for about 1/2 hour or so which was a bummer. Thankfully, it was only off for about an hour total (if that?) so that was good considering we had laundry and stuff to do when we got home.
Another great weekend and now we have a short (but crazy for me) week and Thanksgiving to look forward to! Hope everyone has a great week!
