Long weekend recap

It was a long and productive weekend and even with the craziness that is APEC, Anthony and I were brave and headed out to face traffic and road closures.  20+ presidents and delegates from across the globe = M.A.J.O.R. delays everywhere.

I took off on Thursday (because three-day weekends aren't long enough) and Anthony and I were out and about from the morning.  We hit up the hiking trail with these two girls... Beans and Poki! It's been a while since we went hiking because I was having knee problems but decided to give it a try.  Beans and Poki had vet appointments early in the morning but once that was done we were off.


Beans and Poki... tired before the hike even started.

 
Beans loves to be the leader... it's actually really cute because she'll always look back at us to make sure we're keeping up with her.

Heading back down the "easy" side of the trail.  It's paved going back down.

 

Tired and waiting to get home!

Friday was filled with shopping at the thrift store (50% off already super low prices for Veteran's Day), cleaning around the house and seeing a movie: Immortals.  I don't recommend it.  I'm a huge action movie fan and L.O.V.E.D. the movie 300 but this was nothing compared to it.  Wait for the dvd... or better yet, cable! 

Friday night I got in my killer upper body workout and at one point I walked away from my workout bench to get my sandbag and when I turned around I found Beans sitting on the bench.  She has a habit of wanting to sit/lay where ever I am and once I get off she jumps up and takes my spot.  What a brat.

Saturday we headed to the mall to get some ideas for Christmas gifts (only about a month left!) and stopped by the farmers market.  It was so weird because the mall and market were dead! Hardly anyone around which actually made it perfect to get in a workout at the mall - more on that in a future post.
Other people weren't so brave to fight the delays so the farmers' market was so slow!  Usually it's hard to even walk around in this place.


This is what it looks like when the mall is closed... not two hours after it opens!
 
Sunday was pretty low key and since Anthony works during the day, I usually reserve Sunday's for "me time".  I headed to the gym in the morning and got in my full body workout, went grocery shopping for the week, did more housework, washed my car, and cooked for the week.  To say the least, I was tired by 9:00. 

Four and a half more days until the weekend!
