Coffee Date

Hooray for the weekend! As I am writing this, I am enjoying a delicious cup of Clover brewed coffee at a Starbucks. Have you had a chance to try a Clover brewed coffee yet? It is so delicious! It reminds me very much of the richness that comes from a French press. One of the cool things about the Clover breweing machine is that you get a chance to try out the special reserve blends without having to spend a serious amount of coin. A half pound of the special reserve blends usually costs more than a full pound of the everyday blends.

On Friday, I was actually pretty excited for this weekend. It was the last home stand for my favorite baseball team, the Tampa Bay Rays. Unfortunately, they didn’t have the season that everyone expected of them so they won’t be headed to the postseason this year. The good news about the lack of postseason activity is that I will get to spend more time with Pete and hopefully we will really be able to start nailing down a few details of the wedding and get some projects done around the house. We have such a laundry list of things that we have been putting off for way too long. Since we have decided to really focus on saving money, we won’t be planning any crazy vacations in the next year or so and we will be able to put some money (and time) into the house. I am also excited because we will finally have a chance to go look at possible locations and venues together.

Overall, this week has been less than awesome. Between late nights at the office, horrible weather, and late baseball games, finding time and the energy to workout has not been easy. I was supposed to have to run three times this week and I haven’t run once. I planned to make up one of my runs yesterday but I got distracted. Even though we have already started our wedding website, I am not a huge of the theme that we have right now. I spent all day yesterday working on a custom theme for it. I haven’t worked out all of the details but I am pretty happy with how it is looking right now. Pete’s biggest request is that it doesn’t look too much like a traditional blog so I am trying to figure out the best way to style the theme. I also don’t want the look and feel to be too plain or too fancy. It is a work in progress.

Besides overhauling the design of our wedding website and missing my workouts, I get to hang out with my dad and sister at the last home baseball game of the season. It was a spur of the moment kind of thing but it should be a lot of fun. I normally go to the games with my dad because everyone else is working. It will be nice to get to hang out with my sister too. After we get home from the game, I am going to go for a run! I already asked Pete to make sure that I knock out my scheduled run.

How was your weekend? Did you get to do anything exciting?



I am participating in The Daily Post’s Writing 101 workshop. This is a stream-of-consciousness style post that has very little editing and formatting. I wrote this post in about 20 minutes. Fear has me in its grip and I can’t seem to escape it. I try to run away and hide but I can’t seem…

Weekly Workouts: September 8, 2014

It has quite a few weeks since my last weekly workouts update and quite honestly it has been a few weeks since I had a decent workout (or did any sort of sweating at all). After we got home from Chicago, I let work and everything else get in the way of my marathon training,…

Coffee Date {9/5/2014}

Well hello there! It has been way too long since my last blog post and my last run or workout for that matter. It isn’t that I don’t want to go for a run because I actually do. Life just seems to be getting in the way. Oh and I am fairly certain that my…
