Weekend Wrap-up 

Hi!!

This time last year I was in Hawaii 

And now I am waiting to see if this rain turns to snow tonight hahahaha a little different.  

Great weekend though

I made chicken terriyaki bowls with the boyfriend Friday night

And watched Inferno. I love Dan Browns novels and am super excited that he is working on another story in the Robert Langdon series! 

Saturday the boyfriend and I took a little roadtrip to Corvallis to visit his Alma Mater

We walked around and drove around. Visited my grandmas old house

I spent at least a week here every summer.

We kept up pur streak of trying pizza places, we tried American dream pizza 

It looks amazing but sadly neither of us were very impressed with this pizza. It seemed like they just cooked a cheese pizza then put the toppings on it after. Don’t need to ever return there. 

After we got home the bf and I hit the cheap movie theater near me for a double feature. A Dog’s Purpose and The Space Between Us, both totally cute. 

In other news the boyfriend broke down and bought a Garmin!!! His is the next generation after mine so the heart rate monitor is built in. It’s pretty cool and now we are a Garmin couple lol

I made pasta with chicken, tomato and basil for meal prep this week and sent some with the bf for his lunch this week of course. 

I had some leftover pasta so dinner was a super simple cheese and basil pasta

It was actually pretty delicious 

Picked up something yummy to satisfy my sweet cravings 

Last weeks running total was 6.6 miles. 

This years running total thus far, 31 miles

Going to shoot for 9 miles this week. Slowly increasing 

How was your weekend?

How are you doing workout wise this year?

Favorite pizza topping?

Mine is pineapple and onion

Hawaii day 5 and heading home

By day 5 i needed to relax so while the girls went out i thoroughly enjoyed having the condo to myself and reading pretty much all day.

I took a break from reading to go for a run on the lovely overcast day with some drizzle coming down.

image

And yes when i say lovely, i mean lovely. The drizzling helped a bit with the temperature.
Though the humiditing mixed with the drizzling led to me dripping sweat.

image

A lot of it.

After running i enjoyed a delicious simple lunch

image

image

Then i contined to read for the rest of the day until the girls got back and we all went to dinner at Duke’s. I had Ahmazing fish tacos!!!

Today was pretty much all traveling. A cab picked me up at 9:45. It took me an hour to get through security, Hawaii’s airport is packed.

Then i spent 5 hours in a plan then a $50 cab ride later i was sitting on my porch waiting for my roommates dad to let me in with the spare key since i somehow didn’t pack mine.

And now i am finally in my own bed so excited to go to sleep.

Goodnight!

How was your weekend?

Hawaii day 4

We got up sort of early again and hit Pearl Harbor.

image

It was definitely a moving experience

image

image

image

My souvenir was a book 😌
After Pearl Harbor we went to a local coffee farm.

image

image

image

They had soooo many different coffee flavors it was insane!! Yes i bought several samples lol

image

After coffee was had it was time to see where the coffee came from!

image

image

First comes the flour

image

Then green berries

image

Then red ‘cherries’

After the coffee farm it was Luau time!!

image

image

The pig.

The dancing and entertainment was great but i have to admit the food was lacking for me. Being as i am not eating meat they had 1 fish option and it left a lot to be desired in my opinion. But it was still a great night!

Now for a dilemma, i feel like we have been going going going since we got here, which i understand and enjoy, you want to get in everything you can while you are here. On the other hand to me part of a vacation is taking some time to relax from our hectic everyday lives amd i feel like we haven’t done that and don’t plan to.

Tomorrow is my last full day in Hawaii and the plan for the girls is hitting up a macadamian nut farm, possibly snorkelling then hanging out at a beach and maybe surfing. Those things could be fun but are nothing that i am dying to do. So do i stay at the condo tomorrow and relax or go out with them?

Part of me feels like if i don’t go out with them i am wasting the day but i also feel like I’m going to be exhausted for work and life when i get back if i don’t take the time to rest. Desicions, decisions.

What would you do?

What does your perfect vacation look like?
