The Weekly Chase #194!

Happy Monday y'all! Like always...the weekend went by way too fast around here!

I started my weekend off with some Starbucks since Friday was National Frappe Day! I even got one for the hubby since I'm such a good wife! ;-)


That afternoon I ran some errands including using Walmart's new grocery pick up service! I made my order on Thursday and then went and picked it up after work on Friday. Y'all! I LOVED this! Not having to go into the store made me so happy! They did a great job picking out my produce and meat. And they gave me a rose since it was my first time doing this! I will definitely be utilizing this from now on! 


The hubby joined me in going to the bank. Archie came along too since he loves riding in the car! He was so funny because when we got to the bank there was a long line. He started whining and barking and we weren't sure why. But then I remembered that the last time he came to the bank with us he got a dog biscuit from the teller. That smart boy remembered and as soon as he got his biscuit he quit whining lol! Little stinker! 


Friday night we went to a friends house for pizza and salad. Then all the ladies headed to the movies to see The Girl On a Train! I read the book and was looking forward to seeing the movie! It was really good!


Saturday I ran my last long run before my half marathon next weekend! I ran 8 miles! I'll tell you all about my run on Wednesday!

Andy and Hayden went on a canoe trip with the Boy Scouts so it was just me and Sawyer on Saturday. He had a birthday party at his gymnastics and had a blast!



That afternoon we took Archie to the dog park. We had it all to ourselves which was a good thing since Archie has gotten really protective of us and isn't getting along with other dogs...and some people. I think we are going to have to do some training classes with him because he saw my neighbor at the end of our walk and went ballistic barking at him. Nothing I did made him stop. It was really frustrating. The thing is...when someone knocks on our door he doesn't bark! He doesn't bark any other time really! He only barks when we are walking him and he sees another dog or person. We aren't sure how to teach him to stop doing this. Any suggestions?

He had fun at the dog park though. He apparently things the picnic tables are for him to stand on lol! 


Sunday morning I slept in until almost 7:00! It was glorious! I hardly ever sleep in since I run every morning. I didn't run until around 7:45 but it was fine because the weather was so great! The temp was 59 degrees when I was running! I ran a 5K and felt great! 

The rest of Sunday was spent doing laundry and getting ready for the new week. Ugh! It's never ending! 

Now it's time for the Weekly Chase! It's a new week and I have new goals to achieve! I hope you will link up your own goals with me too! And feel free to use the badge below in your post too! You can grab the badge HERE! :-)
