Weekend Update

Linking up again today with Tara at Running ‘N’ Reading for the Weekend Update!  I had a pretty great weekend and hope you did too!!!

Friday I sadly came to the realization that I love the new Taylor Swift song, “Shake It.”  I say sadly because I have been a staunch T.S. hater forever but this song is catchy, makes me want to dance and makes me change my whole opinion of T.S. as a person!  So after listening to “Shake It” at least 5 times that day I really felt like going out and shaking it Friday night but I decided to be smart and stay in and prepare for my 5k the next morning.  So Friday night was spent drinking tons of water, laying out my race clothes, and watching The Wire.

Saturday I woke up early for the 5k.  I will not get into all of the fiasco that this race was but I will say that I ended up PRing and running into my “Gay Husband,” Reggie, who finished out the race with me!  If it weren’t for him I would not have PR’d.  And we actually had some time to catch up and decided that we need to be running buddies!  So yay to finally finding a new running buddy!


Reggie and I once we crossed the finish line


After the race I headed to Panera for a PSL and Cinnamon Crunch Bagel


That afternoon I found this super cute lunch bag with matching divided container!

Sunday was another day at the hospital.  The best part of Sunday was definitely that my Saints WON!!!!  Finally!!!  I don’t think I could have taken another loss and definitely not a loss in the Dome!

Today and tomorrow I am without a car, mine is being repaired after being side swiped a couple of weeks ago, and so my weekend is continuing! 🙂  This morning I decided to take advantage of not having a car and living in such a great neighborhood and just walk around the neighborhood, shop and have some lunch.  So I walked to a near by running store and finally bought some compression socks and a hand held water bottle.  Then walked to Sucre for some gelato before having lunch at my favorite neighborhood restaurant, Joey K’s.  I found Joey K’s a year ago when some friends came to visit and fell in love with the food and how close it is to my apartment.  Then a few months ago I saw a ranking of different restaurants in NOLA and the #1 neighborhood restaurant in the city was Joey K’s!


Resting up before my run tonight!





One of today’s specials included all of my favorites!

The Joey K’s sampler: 1/2 shrimp po boy, cup of red beans, and cup of jambalaya.

All yummy!!!

Even though I won’t be seeing clients tomorrow I will be going into the office so I’m going to enjoy this last day of my weekend!  I hope you all have a great week!

  1. Sounds like a busy weekend! Sorry that your race didn’t turn out as you had hoped, but congrats on finishing!

    I LOVE The Wire and actually just started watching it again from the beginning. It’s such a great show.


    • Oh my run was great! The event itself was a fiasco. The race started 45 minutes later than expected! It was a Walk 4 Recovery and most of the people there were all standing around smoking before the race and on top of that former patients from the rehab I work at on the weekends recognized me! But once I started running it was great! 🙂

      This is my 3rd time watching The Wire, I love it!!! I’m always trying to get more people to watch it! 🙂
