This was our first weekend in our new town that wasn't spent unpacking or traveling to see family, and it was much needed. Sleeping in and having breakfast at noon is hard to beat, and that's exactly how our Saturday went down.
We spent a lot of the weekend hanging out with old and new friends, that is when we weren't oversleeping and watching Downton Abbey like it's our job. We just started that show, and we are hooked. Believe it or not, Parker is actually the one who initially wanted to watch it. Now we both love it and highly recommend it if you're looking for a new show to get into.
Saturday was National Margarita Day (who makes up these holidays, really?), so we treated ourselves to our favorite frozen beverage. That was about as active as it got on Saturday. I was still recovering from my 10 mile run earlier that week, so productivity was on the back burner. Speaking of the 10 miler, getting through that run was definitely a milestone. It was my last long run before the half marathon, signifying I had made it through this tiring training process. Pretty cool moment :)
Due to the picture on the left, I thought the picture on the right was well deserved. We'll go with it.
In other news, we finally saw Lone Survivor. We went with some friends, so I apologized beforehand for getting emotional and making everyone around me uncomfortable. To my surprise though, I didn't bawl my eyes out. It's hard to explain, but the movie was so intense that I didn't really have time to get emotional. I am usually really fidgety in movies because I can't get comfortable, but I stayed still the entire time. It was a raw and real depiction of something that actually happened. I thought it was really well cast and very well done. Parker and I had already read the book together, and with the exception of a couple of details towards the end, the movie followed the book very closely. Even if you have seen the movie, I still highly recommend reading the book. I teared up at the end when they showed the real heroes of Operation Red Wings, but how could you not? So thankful for all of those who serve our country.
And a weekend update wouldn't be complete without a little news on our favorite pup. Jenny pretty much looked like this all weekend. She is still recovering from the great rabbit chase of 2014 that she is lucky to have survived, but that's another story for another day.
We hope you all had a great weekend! I spent mine with this guy, so no complaints here!
