I love being able to take advantage of long weekends with Q. With my Master’s schedule and substitute teaching on post, I’ve been a busy girl recently. Luckily Q’s 4-day weekend coincided with the school district’s 4-day weekend and I was able to take the time to hang with my two favorite guys.
We rode 14 miles on our bikes on Friday. It kicked my butt and I loved it.
On Saturday, Q ran the Mogadishu Mile 5K honoring fallen Rangers. He wore his full kit (40+ pounds) while running. I took pictures. Carl cheered everyone on and then came home and slept the rest of the weekend. (Also, if you don’t know about the Mogadishu Mile, read this and be inspired).
We saw Captain Phillips and although it was slow, I really enjoyed it. Q thinks Gravity was better and I think Prisoners was the best movie we’ve seen in months.
I painted our pumpkins gold because I wanted to play around with some new spray paint I got. And I love how they turned out. We did some more fun crafts with spray paint that I am excited to share with you this week.
We made beer can chicken and enjoyed a day outside.
Today, Q left early for work (yes, he is working on a holiday) and I went out on the track to get a few miles in. I was so inspired after watching the guys running in their full gear this weekend and pushed myself harder than ever.
And that’s it. A good, solid, enjoyable and relaxing weekend.Pin It
