weekend in review


Since my husband had a friend coming to Chicago over the weekend I decided it was best to let boys be boys and get out of town! Friday I called the day off of work and headed back home to Ohio. My sister and I had conspired to surprise this guy...

She picked me up from the airport Friday afternoon and we ran some errands (including finding last minute Father's Day gifts!), she made one last call for work and we headed back to her place to enjoy the rest of the evening on her boat.

Few things beat a nice relaxing evening on the water!

Afterwards we decided to make the drive to my dad's house to surprise him! There was about a 10 second delay when he saw me then a couple "What the h*ll are you doing here?!?!" I think I succeeded in surprising him :)

The rest of the weekend included a lot of family time, cookouts, and drinking. Eating and drinking are two things my family does best. Before the stuff of faces began my sister and I also snuck in a short humid run on Saturday morning which included following the marathon blue line. The Akron marathon paints a blue line along the course and since the course goes right by her front door and around her neighborhood we were able to experience a small part of the marathon course.

Of course before I left Friday I had a severe sore throat and thought I could get whatever start of a cold under control. Ummm.... not so much. I woke up Monday morning sounding like Marge Simpson's sisters and feeling like my head weighed 500 lbs. Yeah, I'm supposed to travel to 2 visits this week in which I have to talk the majority of the day. Should be fun! At least it all hit me after the trip home.

Get yourself doped up on Vitamin C. Like, 15,000mgs a day. Seriously.
