Weekend Wrap Up {Saturday 28}


It has been a long time since I’ve written a weekend wrap-up, like the last one was in March 2017. Yikes. I thought I’d share what we did this weekend because it was really fun and also productive. Vinn and I ran our first training run together for our half marathon, I hit up a girls night dinner and I started reading a new book.

But let’s back up to Friday first.

Friday was a pretty low-key day. I worked out, got my haircut and stayed at home on the couch all night. I love spending quiet nights inside, especially since we travel so much and having some peace and quiet at home is so nice. Plus, we have this cute girl to snuggle with on the couch with her new pillow.

Is this pillow not the cutest thing you’ve ever seen? My sister got it for us for Christmas and I am obsessed with it!

Saturday rolled around and we eased into the day before our 6 mile run. It’s the longest I’ve run since we moved to Germany and it felt amazing. The pace was pretty good for me but slow for Vinn but, thankfully, he likes running with me and we finished it together. We did an out and back 3 mile loop and headed towards the the castle in our city of Ludwigsburg and I’ll definitely keep up with my half-marathon training if I can run through this.

Amazing, right?

After our 6 mile run, I got ready to head out to a girls only dinner. I didn’t snap any pictures (I know so bad!) but I just had the best time. It was nice to hang out with some girls, chatting and drinking wine. Probably a little too much wine…oops. I made it home late and passed out immediately upon arrival. Vinn and Copley were asleep when I got home, which made it really easy to climb into bed.

And then Sunday was spent taking Copley for long walks, doing German homework and reading my new book Beneath a Scarlet Sky. Oh my God! This book is incredible. It’s based on the true story of an Italian teen who lived in Milan during World War II and how he and his family get through the war. I’m only 30% finished with the book but it is definitely a page turner. I just can’t believe it’s real! The end of each chapter has me want to keep reading.

I also wrote this blog post and watched last week’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills before falling asleep at 10 PM. I loved the weekend and feel rested and energized for the week!

What did you do this weekend? Have you read any good books lately?

    Sounds like a fun weekend Jessica! I would love to have runs by a castle. I’ll trade you that for the farms I run by, deal? Kidding, enjoy the beautiful training views!

    I love a weekend that includes a run! I’d love to run in such a picturesque place!
    And that pillow..so cute! I’m a total dog mom, so I will buy anything with a pug on it haha.

    Oh my gosh, I WISH my training runs looked like this! They’ve mostly been treadmill runs here in DC either from it being too dark to run or too cold. Fingers crossed my 8-miler this weekend can be around the Nat’l Mall!

      I’ll keep my fingers crossed!
