Weekends are never long enough

This past weekend was pretty relaxing and fun. Dave’s birthday was on Friday, so I left work a bit early so I could make it to DE at a reasonable time without hitting too much traffic. We went for a nice birthday run and then got ready to head to Philly. It was restaurant week and we were going with another couple to eat at Alma de Cuba. The food was amazing, loved the ambiance of the restaurant as well. After our tasty meal, we also went to meet up with Dave’s friend for a birthday drink and then made it home.

The rest of the weekend was pretty low-key. We did watch Paranormal Activity, which wasn’t as scary as I thought it would be, but still had me closing my eyes to try to avoid something scary that I thought might happen. And of course, on Sunday there was football to be watched. The Saints-Vikings game was pretty intense, but fun to watch.

We also ran on Sunday, both Dave and I have done a great job at maintaining our running through the winter. We are thinking of running a 5k race that goes right by Dave’s house and also doing a 5 miler race in March. It’s fun to have a couple races to look forward to. I’m not sure what kind of big race(s) I’ll end up doing this year, but I’m sure I’ll figure them out in time. I did put my name in the NYC half marathon that’s to take place in March, but my name didn’t get pulled, maybe next year. Note to self, add to list of things to do in life: run a race in NYC (maybe the marathon this fall???? haha).

Happy Monday!


No Country for Old Men

Ok, so I’m way behind and finally saw this movie this past weekend. I’ve been meaning to see it, especially since I knew that there was a lot of scenes that take place in Las Vegas, NM, but its one of those movies you have to be in the mood to see. It was pretty good, the violence was very Coen brother’s style, but it was one of those movies that makes you think. I loved being able to see the different places in Las Vegas, in fact you can see the Sunshine Motel (barely) in one scene and last time I was there, I was in one of the same restaurants that Tommy Lee Jones did a scene in, I had no clue! I’m going to have to watch the movie again, especially after reading about other peoples take on the movie. So many different takes on the meaning of the movie. Very proud that Las Vegas was representing!
