Random Sunday

Thank you (again ;)) for all of the congrats on my race! I woke up a little sore and decided that it might be good to take a yoga class. I had received a free pass to a new Bikram Yoga studio in my race pack so I used it and took an awesome 90 minute class. It was the perfect start to the day.

After class, there was some football and relaxing and then Josh and I ran out to pick some pumpkins:

The patch had lots of awesome goodies including barrel pickles:

Josh and I also picked up a few mini pumpkins and two larger ones for our door step:

Love Halloween! The rest of the day was spent watching more football and enjoying some good eats/drinks.

We sampled the two new POM flavors that the awesome people from POM sent us earlier this week. We both enjoyed the nectarine. Its super sweet and would be perfect mixed into some tea or used in a sweet bread. We were not fans of the kiwi….a little funky for our taste buds.

For dinner, Josh's friend Jeremy came over. The boys had grilled steak, corn, and pineapple:


I had a monster salad:

some cereal and an apple with lots of nut butter (unpictured and totally random...just one of those nights ;)).

I'm hoping to spend the rest of the night hanging out with Josh and this guy...





How was your weekend?

I can't wait until I go to the pumpkin patch/cider mill. Mmm, I can taste the donut now :)

Glad to hear you aren't too sore! That's great!! A yoga sesh sounds like the perfect post-race work out. POM in a bread? I like the sounds of that!

The wrinkles, those eyes, I'm in love with your dog! Frank is such a cutie!!

Maria said...

Sounds like a great Sunday to me! It was raining and freezing here so we stayed in and relaxed. It was kind of nice.

Gab* said...

I would love to try Bikram yoga! There is a studio where I live but I'm worried it'd be too hot...

Lizzy said...

how did you like the Bikram class?? I've been to one before and liked it, but it ended up being to expensive for me!

Allie (Live Laugh Eat) said...

Free bikram class!? SO JEALOUS! My roomie and I are planning to go to a pumpkin patch--I'm so excited!! Thanks for the Pom review!

I spent last weekend at Kripalu! Have you heard of it? It's the largest residential yoga center in the country and absolutely fantastic for a weekend getaway.

Happy October - you're all set with your pumpkins :-)
