Happy Monday! I’m off today (although I have a dentist appointment shortly….#boo) and have just been enjoying this long weekend so much.

Starting backwards….

I completed the Staten Island Half Marathon yesterday and miraculously had a really good race. I’ll have a complete recap up soon. Thank you to those who gave me knee advice. I’m really happy to report it held up. Just some mild pain from mile 11 to the finish.

Saturday rained all day but when it lightened up a bit we took the dogs for a stroll through the park.

Happiness is…

Friday I attended a wedding. My hair behaved and my dress zippered….#winning

I got to see some old friends/coworkers.

And I had so much fun with my partner in crime pigging out on the best cocktail hour eats. I love that he loves food as much as I do. Food is not just fuel in our world. I failed at taking pics of the delicious eats because I was too busy shoving in as much as I could in an hour. But the highlights were mini red snapper fish tacos, crab cake sliders and mini philly cheese steak sandwiches. Oh the shitake mushroom tempura was pretty tasty too. =)

By favorite accessory of the night =)

After my dentist appointment this morning, I’ll be taking Duncan upstate to meet up with my friend Susan and her Jack Russell (Duncan’s girlfriend) Lucy for a hike along the Hudson River. It’ll be a great way to get that lactic acid buildup out of my quads from the race yesterday. The fall foliage should be pretty amazing too.

Holiday weekends are the best!

What did you do? Are you working today?
