Exercise, beer and dogs. These are a few of my favorite things!

I've had another scrumptious weekend, and it's been hard not to think about how sucky Mondays are when you've had 2 super days sans office. Saturday morning Manfriend and I did a 5K! I was extremely nervous going into it because I haven't run in nearly 3 weeks due to a hip injury. Yes, this is the sign that I am in fact becoming an old lady. Hip problems, what is the world coming to? I was expecting it to be painful, so I slammed a monster pain pill and just fought through it. I ended up running the whole time and finishing strong. My final time was 34:15. Not my best work, but I was proud nonetheless. The course ran through the Forth Worth Zoo and surrounding neighborhoods. We got to see rhinos, hippos, giraffes, elephants and flamingos! It was pretty neat. I spent most of the race about 10 feat behind Manfriend, which was extremely frustrating. I just couldn't seem to catch him: We were happy finishers. If you can't tell, that is a fanny pack strapped to my waist. I love a fanny pack. I really can't get enough. Saturday we went with some friends to a restaurant where they brew their own beers. Fun! The beers were delicious, although not all of them were for me. We ordered the sampler, so we could get a tast of all of them. The funniest part of the experience was the mini-glasses that the samples come in. Manfriend looked like the hulk sipping from the tiny cups. I even felt like a monser and I usually love miniature-ized things. His big paws on those things really brought me the LOLs. Last night we headed out to Manfriend's parents house for some home cooking. It was delicious as usual, but one of my favorite aspects is that the Prince gets to play with some of his best buddies, Sugar (the white Shitzu Maltese) and Cooper (the brown Pomeranian). Cooper is a new addition to the family and Chuy is having a great time hazing him into the dog pack. The Prince was still exhausted this morning from the play. Hopefully he doesn't get hip problems too. Did I mention that I'm the next Dog Whisperer? Those precious puppies just couldn't get enough of me: I don't blame them. It's a new week and I'm extra focused on skinny-izing myself. Hungry already, this is going to be tough.


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
