A perfect day

Saturday was the best day of my weekend.  It was perfect because I did everything that I love all in one day!

First thing, I was up at 5:30am to meet the running club at 6:30am for a tough hilly run!  It was brutally hot and I was soaked with sweat by the end but it was an awesome way to start the day!  I kept the pace pretty easy until the end when I was running with another guy who wanted to go fast, so I ran with him.  I was pretty sore the next day - opps.

13 miles in 1:50:26/8:26 pace



Then I met up with a very good friend for some wedding shopping!  We were able to gather all the supplies for the rest of my little DIY projects! Can't wait to show you all when they are finished!!

Next I was in the kitchen preparing a scrumptious dessert!  A berry trifle!  The perfect treat for a backyard BBQ!  We had a nice little house warming party and invited over a bunch of friends to show them our new home that finally looks like we live there! Nothing like a party to get us to clean the place up!




The recipe for this trifle is from the food network website - Patriotic Berry Trifle.  It was so easy to make!  I ran out of time so I didn't make the cream - I just used store bought whipped cream. 


Hope you had a perfect weekend too!!   Happy Monday - back to work :(

Is the trifle gone? If not, I'm sure I could be there in hours to help polish it off. It looks wonderful. Congrats on having a tough but good run and wonderful weekend.
