Saturday funday doesn’t sound as good as Sunday Funday, but whoever thought up of the word saturday was not thinking, because it is very hard to rhyme with.
Saturday workout: 45 minute run
I now live about a 10-15 minute run from the lake (depending on the route). In my old place, I was about a 1 minute jog from the lake, but you know what, I really enjoy running through the streets of Chicago, and yesterday that’s all Dean and I did. After a lazy morning involving French pressed coffee and TV, we set out around 10 am with no planned route, and just ran down whatever street we felt like. I just love discovering new areas of the city I’ve never seen before, so of course I had to take several pictures:
Given that it was like 90 something degrees out, I was surprised that I wasn’t completely dying in the heat and was sorta feeling a little proud of myself. Then I realized it was probably because I was running really slow and stopping every couple of minutes to take pictures. Haha.
Dean’s aunt and uncle were so gracious and offered to give us a few pieces of furniture for our new place, so Saturday afternoon we drove up to Wisconsin to where they live to pick up the pieces of furniture and bring them back to our place.
After that was done, we introduced them to the mega Whole Foods practically just down the street from us, where we all bought beers there at the bar and then walked around shopping for food to grill up on our rooftop for dinner. I always love seeing people’s expressions the first time they walk into that Whole Foods. I remember my dad looking completely overwhelmed the first time I took him there…he just kept wandering around everywhere paralyzed with indecision from all the choices of food to eat. Haha.
We picked up some pesto shrimp and veggie skewers, some salmon burgers, pretzel buns (my favorite!), some salad stuff, and of course my favorite beer.
We then relaxed, grilled, and pigged out on our rooftop while enjoying the sunset. I’m feeling very spoiled right now : )
