This was a great, busy week. Last weekend was my brother and now sister-in-law's wedding!
Don't they look so happy? The wedding was full of fun, dancing, and googly eyes, like the best ones are. I'm so excited to have another sister! The wedding was also near my parents' house so I got to spend some time snuggling this guy.
I worked out a good amount this week and had two totally different runs: One was in 80+ degree heat when I was tired and dehydrated (spoiler alert: it was awful) and the other was a cloudy, early morning run where I ran one of my fastest 5Ks yet. I also was lucky enough to get in an evening walk with my husband almost every night this week. This was after a particularly sweaty HIIT workout!
It was a great week for food, per usual!
Top row: protein strawberry smoothie bowl, Sweet potato waffles from Juli Bauer's cookbook, and black bean burger tacos.
Bottom row: mustard chicken salad (sans bacon), chocolate protein pancakes post 5K, and my favorite maple yogurt with coconut, cashews, and berries.
Today we took a trip to the Boothbay Botanical Gardens for the first time since this weekend is free entry (!) and we loved it. We walked about 3 miles looking at everything!
The top left is a reflexology labyrinth where you take your shoes off and walk around it to get a foot massage, thanks to nature. It was a little odd at first to take our shoes off and walk around but after we did a bunch of kids joined us and it was really fun! The last picture is from the end of our hike -- after we found, and thankfully avoided, a porcupine. Of course we ended the day with a lobster roll!
Next weekend we're headed to Vermont for my college reunion and I'll get to see friends I haven't seen in years--and eat at some of my all time favorite restaurants! Have a great week everyone!
