Running, Napping, Derbying, And Date Night, Oh My!

Happy Sunday! I’m coming at you a little late today since yesterday was packed pretty full. Have a great day 🙂


I ran yesterday! For the first time in a week, I laced up my shoes and headed out. I didn’t have a plan at all and ended up getting 4 miles in. They felt hard though! I don’t know  if it was because I hadn’t run in a while or since it was hotter than it has been but man it was hard to get those 4 miles in. Even with that, I was glad to just get out and move.


When I got home, Bailey and Alex were still in bed so they got up and moving. We headed for a little family walk. Since it was nice, we ended up driving to some soccer fields to let Bailey run around for a while. By the time we made it home, we were hungry so breakfast was a must. I scrambled some eggs and Alex made bacon for us.


Once everything was cleaned up, we said goodbye to Bailey and went to do some shopping. We both needed a few clothing items and managed to pick up Mother’s Day gifts for both our moms so that was a pretty successful trip. When we got home, it was time for lunch. I used leftover BBQ chicken from earlier in the week and threw it in a quesadilla then paired it with some salsa verde. The salsa was necessary to tie the flavors together. I also had some carrots and hummus to munch on as well.

We watched an episode of The Office and somehow I fell asleep. I thought that was going to be the end of my napping but nope. I spent the entire afternoon napping on and off for some reason. I was a fairly productive though and went through all of my shorts to see what did and didn’t fit me. Then it was time to change and head out for a Kentucky Derby party.


Alex’s brother Tucker and his fiance Allison have a Kentucky Derby party every year. We headed over for a bit to watch the race. They had some mint julep for the Debry and margaritas for Cinco De Mayo which was cute. I snacked on some chips and salsa before the race. Alex and I had Firenze Fire and Enticed but neither horse even made it in the top 3 unfortunately so we lost in the little pool that happened. We said our goodbyes and headed to date night.


Alex made a reservation for us at this cute little Italian restaurant called Lola Restaurant. It was a tiny little place but super cute inside. When I looked at the menu nothing really jumped out to me unfortunately. But I knew whatever I ordered was going to be good and I was right. I ordered fettuccini pesto which had grilled chicken and sundried tomatoes in a pesto cream sauce. So good and I felt like I didn’t even make a dent in the bowl even though I ate a ton. Alex got the seafood combination with linguini in a white sauce and he really enjoyed his meal as well.


When they cleared our dinner plates, Alex asked for the dessert menu. We split the lava cake which was interesting. Normally I feel like the lava part is on the inside but they just put some fudge on top of the cake. It was still good just different to us though and the dessert plate was empty between the two of us haha. When we got home, we hung out with Bailey on the couch before going to bed.

Question of the day: Did you watch the Kentucky Derby yesterday?

  1. sounds like a good Saturday to me. We did watch the race. Colby picked the winner and I picked the horse that came in 3rd. I’ve never heard of a lava cake with the sauce on the outside, that’s just sounds like a cake with hot fudge not a lava cake which has a molten center. oh well as long as it tasted good that’s what counts


    1. Lucky Colby! I was shocked at how dirty the horses and jockeys in the back were because the track was so muddy. If the cake didn’t taste good I would’ve been really disappointed but luckily it was tasty!


  2. Awesome on getting out for the run, I’ve been struggling with allergies and a cold on runs. Love your outfit, such a great party and date night.


    1. Thanks! I’m hoping today is easier on runs or I’ll just be winging it for a weeks until allergies die down. Allergies are killing me this week – last week was straight survival mode lol. Thanks!! I may replicate the outfit for a graduation party in a few weeks but don’t tell anyone 😉


  3. AWWW!! You look beautiful & such a lovely picture of you and Alex! I love that they included both mint juleps and margs. That food from Lola’s sounds sooood delicious too!
