Friday afternoon I headed to Starbucks of course! It was, after all, Friday Frapp Day! Starbucks was running a buy one get one free on their holiday drinks. I normally order a Coffee Light Frapp but since that doesn't count as a holiday drink I decided to go with the Chestnut Praline Frapp (I like the latte version so assumed I'd like the frappuccino version). I got the hubby an Eggnog Frapp. Well...I went later in the day so my favorite baristas (the ones that know me by name) weren't working. And....it was the BUSIEST I have ever seen that Starbucks! I waited in line for about 10 minutes...and then I waited another 10 minutes for my drinks. When they came out I thought they looked a little too white to have coffee in them. But I grabbed them and headed home. Well.......mine did NOT have coffee in it for sure. And it was way too sweet. I only ordered a grande (not my usual venti since I knew it would have more calories than my normal frapp) and I could only drink half of it. Yuck! The hubby liked the Eggnog one...but again...no coffee in it. So a very disappointing Friday Frapp Day!
That night we had a movie night with the boys. We rented The Avengers: Age of Ultron! Hayden LOVED it! I thought it was pretty good too!
Saturday morning I decided to sleep in some. I didn't need to get up early to beat the heat because it was 48 degrees outside! I enjoyed sleeping in! Then I had a great run in the cool air!
Later that morning I went shopping with some of the gift cards I got for my birthday! I found some great deals! I LOVE shopping again now that I have lost weight!
That afternoon Jenny and I headed to pick up our packets for the Battleship 12K that we were running the next day! We ran into my friends Kirstin and Jim while we were there! Fun!
Afterwards we went to Starbucks of course (and I told my favorite barista about the day before's experience and he promised to make it up to me lol)!
Then we did a little shopping. After that we headed home to pick up the family and meet again with our friends Kirstin and Jim for our pre race pizza dinner! So yummy!
Sunday morning was race day!!! I was so looking forward to running the Battleship 12K! The weather was perfect for running...it was in the high 40's when we started. I debated on whether or not to wear a long sleeve shirt under my tank top...I made the wrong choice. I got so hot! Next time I will listen to my gut...and to Jenny lol! It was such a fun race! I'll have a recap for you on Wednesday!
Sunday afternoon I met Kirstin and her mom Nancy for some shopping and some Starbucks! I was craving my coffee light frappuccino! It was so good!
Super duper fun weekend!!!
