5 things I'm looking forward to this weekend

This week has simply flown by!  Between a busy work at the office and finally maintaining my workout routine, I'm glad it's the weekend.  In recent weeks, I've found that by the time Friday rolls around, I'm feeling a bit drained and run down...and desperate for a few days of "me time."  This week I've been balancing my job, my workouts, and life a bit better.  I've knocked out a few small chores each evening in the hopes that my weekend can be spent doing some more fun things and less catching up around the house. 

1. Picking up some fall flowers for my front steps.  I love having potted flowers on my front stoop area.  There's something about flowers that makes a home feel more inviting and now that the mums are out, they've been calling my name!

2. Visiting a friend's new baby.  One of my boyfriend's dear friends just had a baby and we may swing by to say hello, smooch a sweet baby boy, and drop off some food.  I have to admit that really tiny babies scare me a bit.  They are just so little!

3. My long run.  It's been a long time since I've actually looked forward to a very long run, but after two strong weeknight runs this week, I'm hoping that my legs will bounce back.  I may head down to the beach for a change of scenery which would be nice.

4. Picking up a pumpkin and maybe some gourdes for the front steps.  I'm a big fan of fall and I simply love visiting the local farm to snag a pumpkin or two each year.  And it's that time!

5. Bake some fall treats.  After baking two batches (4 loaves) of pumpkin bread in the last few weeks, I think I've perfected my pumpkin spice bread recipe.  And no, I haven't eaten them all myself!  Now I'm ready to move on to some new fall treats.  I'm thinking about some baked apples.

What are you up to this weekend?

  2. Ugh. My comment keeps getting deleted when I got to post it!

    Long story short I really wish I was looking forward to my long run this weekend but I feel like this week flew by and I'm just so tired! I'm worried going into it with a negative attitude is going to just make it a brutal run : (

    But yes, it's definitely fall up here - supposed to only be a high of 60 today!

  5. I know how you feel about tiny babies. When someone asks me if I want to hold a newborn, I always lean toward "no." Happy fall to you!
