I’m back in Florida again after a super nice day back at home! The amount that I have flown this year is crazy… I am NOT a fan of flying, nor am I a fan of school…
But on the upside, my family is down here for the week!
Happy Easter everybody!
I hope you are all having a wonderful day and are stuffing your faces with chocolate. Unless you don’t like chocolate, and if that is the case… What is wrong with you?
But I don’t like Peeps are jelly beans, so I guess I’m weird too.
(I just really wanted an excuse to put this picture in this post… I laughed way too hard at it.)
Anyways, I started my day off with an 8 mile run! I feel like I haven’t done a long run in FOREVER… really. It’s been 2 weeks!! Also, I feel kind of silly calling 8 miles a long run… it seems that every single blog I read runs like 20,000 miles a day. But I’m working my way up to it!
Definitely not my best run… I don’t know if it’s from being on a plane or from the fact that I have done hard workout the past two days, but my pace averaged a little bit over 9:30 minutes per mile. But hey, I did it!
I think I’ve sort of hit a sweet spot with 8 miles, I think I’m going to try to bump it up to 9 next week. But we shall see!
I also wound up accidentally running down a path that took me through a graveyard this morning.
Eerie… My dad actually used to take me to graveyards A LOT. He just liked them, I couldn’t really tell you why. He especially loved the really old ones. Personally, they half sleeve me out and half break my heart.
After my run, I cleaned my sweaty self up, had a bite to eat (some fruit and nuts) and got ready to head out to Mass.
Oh look, it’s the sunflower dress I talked about here.
I don’t really know what I did with my hair today, but I kind of dig it.
After Mass, it was time for the best part of every Easter (besides Jesus rising from the dead and stuff… that’s pretty rad too), BRUNCH (at 2:00…so not really brunch).
I ate my first plate too quickly to take a picture of it, but it had lox, 1/4 of a bagel, a half piece of that salmon, shrimp cocktail, and steamed zucchini and squash. YUM!
Then my family got a whole bunch of plates of cake to share.
At the end of our meal, my family shared a truly delightful pot of chamomile tea. I never actually drink chamomile tea, I just always forget about it. But I think I’m going to start because it was SO good and I know that it’s good for your stomach!
There were also some quality family selfies.
I just want to look like my mama. She’s so beautiful.
oh the awkwardness.
And now I am just sitting on the floor at the country club trying to get some school work done, I am SWAMPED with assignments and tests this week.
So on that note, I am just going to leave you all with this.
I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed day with friends and family, whether you celebrate Easter or not!
