I am coming off of the high of a 4 day weekend. Hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day!
Oh my…how do I recap 4 nonstop days of fun? Of course there was lots of running and playing in the sun involved. Lots of pool time and enjoying summer nights for the last few days of the season.
Well…on Friday I took the day off from work. So I took advantage of it and went on over to the Onyx Nail Bar in Uptown Dallas to get my nails did. This place was seriously awesome. They had a REAL bar in the back, whipping up cocktails while others were doing manis and pedis. They allowed you a drink for free which was pretty cool. I had an orange martini and it was marvelous.
After that I did a little window shopping in the Bishop Arts District. It’s a gentrified area of Oak Cliff where they have all of these new restaurants and boutiques.
Saturday I was up early to knock out a training run. 18 miles in the heat. This is the most mileage I’ve done since the beginning of the year! It was a good run for sure. Working my way up to 20.
That night after a nice nap I went to a Yelp event in downtown. I brought along my friend Camilia and we met Angela there. Cooling off with some wine infused ice pops. Talk about yummy and refreshing.
As always the Yelp team does amazing and always gives the Elite yelpers lots of cool treats. Check out my swag bag.
Sunday I went out dancing to this cool spot in Addison. Look at this dude dancing all by his lonesome. He was seriously getting down.
The next day I slept in until about 11…and it was lovely. Then I met my neighbor Camillia for a run at the local park. She did 7 miles for the very first time! She’s training for a half marathon at the end of the year so she’s trying to get her miles up. So proud of her…she definitely rocked it and in the heat no less!
Monday night I did a little grocery shopping and picked up these Cotton Candy grapes from Sprouts. And I am not kidding you they really have a hint of cotton candy taste! It’s crazy. I am wondering how the heck that is even possible but they are so freaking good.
How was your weekend? Did you go out of town, staycation or do anything out of the ordinary?
