weekend roundup

I didn't realize how much we've accomplished in a day until I started uploading the photos for this post. To say that our Saturday was eventful would be an understatement.

The Mister finished his first Sprint Triathlon in the morning which comprised of a .55km open-water swim, 25km bike ride and a 5km run...whew!

All the Mister's training for the traithlon has rubbed off on me. I'm planning to run a half marathon by September so I've been training as well. Saturday proved to be a milestone for me too as I had exceeded my 10km record and ran 13km. I have a month more to build the endurance to run 8kms farther.

After sweating buckets, I changed to my dress and met my girlfriends for an early dinner. We dined al fresco to take advantage of the short and sweet Minnesota summer and talked about our favorite blogs, recent clothing purchases, latest restaurant discoveries, etc... Just being able to share the most mundane thoughts with friends brings me such thrill. I'm lucky to have two very encouraging friends who share my enthusiasm for blogging (and shopping). If you want to know what I mean, visit Grace and Faye to follow their love affair with food and fashion.

Thanks to the photography skills of my good friend and fellow blogger, Faye, we still looked fresh in the pictures despite the unforgiving heat and humidity.

It was supposed to be a night out with the girls but someone tagged along..... The truth was the Mister used the triathlon as an excuse to avoid daddy-daycare duties.

After leaving the restaurant, we continued the girl chat, this time with the hubbies and the kids, at our friend's house. We found ourselves drinking martinis and singing oldies but goodies tunes until midnight.

Hope your weekend was spent doing what you love with people who inspire!

I was just telling Faye that the weekend was over so soon! We need an ENTIRE day next time just to talk about our shopping exploits! Two hours is too short, specially if there's a yummy distraction between conversations in the form of a million-calorie-per-bite red velvet cheesecake! :D
