After working three Saturdays in a row, I was glad to have a two-day weekend to enjoy with Craig.
Friday night I ran some errands, did “work” on the computer, and wore my new Oiselle sweatshirt. Prior to working at Skinny Raven (and Kara Goucher becoming sponsored by them), I knew very little about Oiselle (pronounced “wa-zell”). The other gals at work spoke highly of their running clothes, so I am excited to try more when we get some in the store next week.
I did purchase this Feather Trials Hoodie from the online sale and received some compliments on it when I wore in on Friday.
Saturday morning I woke up hungry—too hungry to do a “long” run of 9 miles on just a few energy chews, so I made breakfast for myself and then crawled back in bed with the computer and got unmotivated to go for my long run. Instead of running I made breakfast for Craig. He gave me very specific directions on how to make this masterpiece.

Early Saturday afternoon we headed to the dog park so Sadie could run off leash for a while. She was good for the first half of our walk and then got pretty tuckered out. Yet when it was time to go, she had no desire to get into the car to leave. Anytime we get within 200 feet of the parking lot (at the dog park) or a couple blocks away from our house (when out on a walk in the neighborhood), she starts walking so slowly. Her tail isn’t as perky anymore and she looks like child who lost their favorite toy. It is quite funny if you ask me.
After the dog park we ran some errands around town, which included a stop at Baby Gap. This is the first baby item I have purchased so far, which made my pregnancy feel even more real. I scored this onesie and hat for $2.76. I was pretty stoked about that.
That evening we met up with our friends Anthony and Lauren at Ronnie’s Sushi off Jewel Lake Road in Anchorage. For all the locals out there, if you go to Ronnie’s—eat at the bar! We got three items (an additional appetizer, mid-meal item, and dessert) for free prepared by the sushi chef. The rolls are also extra-large at Ronnie’s. I had some raw-free roll recommended by the chef.
It was too nice to stay inside, so we pulled out a table on the back porch and played a round of Pandemic. It was a gorgeous night with the sunshine and warm temps.
I’ve decided May is my favorite month in Alaska. Winter is finally done (usually), the weather is starting to warm up, it feels like spring, and it is usually very sunny and dry. (June and July can have its spurts of rainy weather.)
Sunday morning before church I ran 9 miles around Lake Hood. It was a good run, and I’m glad this distance still feels manageable.
We celebrated Mother’s Day with Craig’s mom with dinner and a walk to get ice cream at Tastee Freeze.
I posted this picture of my mom on Facebook. My mom and I when I was two days old.
This post is a few days past due, but I hope your weekend was just as splendid.
