While Mom was enjoying London Marathon prep and the race, Adam and I were enjoying spring in Virginia. The weather in VA has been amazing and we really enjoyed it this weekend - bike rides, hanging out in the hammock, backyard TRX, etc.
We had a really fun and social weekend! Adam and I enjoyed a date night on Friday at a local brewery and then had some bbq and played pool. Let's just say that while I am competitive, I suck at pool! You don't want me on your team. Seriously. I also was able to see a friend who I have known since 7th grade while she was home for Passover. I have attended Seders at her family's home many times and I was excited to bring Adam this year. Unfortunately, I ended up with a minor injury from dinner. I helped serve matzah ball soup and while serving one bowl, I tilted the bowl in my hand, sloshing very hot soup over my right hand. It's been quite red and I have a small blister. How do you get injured at a dinner party? Only I could pull that off!
