My Weekend-The Good, The Bad, The Ugly {MIMM}

This weekend was a mixed bag. I was kind of feeling in a funk from being in a weird mood, having a to-do list where 2 things are added every time I cross one thing off, and the weather. Today I'm ready to get things organized and have a fabulous week. 

Here's the good, the bad, and the ugly recap from the weekend.  I'm one of those people who likes to hear the good news last so we'll follow that pattern-luckily there were many marvelous parts!

The ugly: 

My race on Sunday was maybe my worst ever and some of the worst I've ever felt. More on that when my recap goes up. 

The humidity was also really ugly this weekend. 

The bad: 

Working late on a Friday. Seriously should be illegal!
That it's already Monday. 

Signing up to take out more student loans. (::sad trombone sound plays::)

That my stomach has been feeling crappy from all the food I gorged on this weekend. #carbcity

That I didn't get to spend more time with my family this weekend. 

Going to bed super late on Friday after one or four glasses of wine which lead to a lazy, foggy Saturday morning.

That I haven't decided on a marathon training plan yet and my training starts this weekend. Oops. 

The good: 

Wine with neighbors on a Friday night. 

Iced coffee in the summer. 

Philly soft pretzels and a cold beer in the shade after aforementioned crappy race.

Homemade blueberry waffles and sausage for breakfast on Sunday.

Naps on the weekend. 

Cuddling with my cats at my parents' house. 

Finally getting to use my groupon for a gel manicure that I meant to use right before my birthday. Getting my nails done is so relaxing. My bubblegum pink nails make me really happy.

Getting a gelati with my family in New Jersey. It's been forever and this one was amazing. Vanilla soft serve with honeydew water ice (that's what people from the Philly area call italian ice FYI.) The photo doesn't do it any justice.

  2. This weekend was absolutely brutal and Oddyssey was a nightmare for some for what I heard. I look forward to hearing your take on the event. I've been in Philly so long I forgot most people don't know what water ice is, lol! Hope this turns out to be a much better week for you!

    1. Well I'm glad I'm not the only one it was nightmarish for! People look at me weird if I say water ice down here in Maryland. All there is is Rita's!

  3. Ugh I guess we're all in a bit of a funk. Hopefully the ice cream whips us into shape! Sorry about the race, it was just SO hot this weekend that I can imagine that added to the frustrations from it. Best part of the weekend: having the apartment to myself for 3 days while my roommates were out of town. Ha it sounds so terrible but it's nice to have the space!

  4. My weekend seemed to fly by as well. And ick to it being Monday. I'm so sorry you were in a funk this weekend - it's so tough to kick ourselves out of it sometime. But I'm hoping you're having a better start to your week! My weekend was good, and I even managed to get some beach time in!

  13. Even though I had an awesome weekend my Monday started off in a funk too. The gross weather didn't help. Sorry about your race. Ah I had to work late on Friday night too. It should be illegal.
