This weekend I averaged about 4 hours of sleep, with the exception of Sunday night where I slept like a goddess for 11-12 hours. You see, this was my EPIC weekend. Let me tell you about it.
It all started on Thursday night. Jesse and I drove to LA for a concert at the House of Blues on Sunset. In case you’re wondering, we saw Bajofondo, here’s one of their songs:
That got us home at about 1:00AM, at which point I was dying (because I had been up since 5:30am). After getting home at 1:00am ish, I was up at 5:00am to take my sister to the airport. I skipped crossfit and came home and napped for another half hour, then headed to work.
After work I braved traffic and made it to Downtown Disney to pick up my race number for the Disney 10k the next morning. This is where it starts to get good.
I picked up my number, met up with a friend, had dinner and went to sleep around 9:30. All was well in the world.
The next morning we were up at 4:30am for the race!
Oh hey look it’s me running and looking like a hot mess. Why yes that’s the previous night’s make up. How could you tell? Cute, I know.
Oh hey there I am checking the time…
Overall, it was super fun! Disney races aren’t really the type of races you do for speed. They’re more fun. And luckily I had some awesome running buddies with me!
While we all didn’t run together the whole time, it was fun to know that someone else was doing it with you.
After the race, I rushed home and took a shower and headed to LA to photograph a wedding.
You heard that right: photograph a wedding. Remember way back when I wanted to try out something new? Well it’s photographing people, not just food.
Let me tell you… photographing a wedding is hard. It looks easy, but it’s stressful and long. And for God’s sake, when you get married, walk slowly down the aisle!
So after a long day of photographing (I’ll show you some pics once I get them edited), I got home around 12:30pm (luckily this wedding didn’t run too late). I crashed into my bed, only to wake up at 7:00am for work the next morning.
I told you I got a second job to pay for crossfit and my camera, right? Well, that involves me waking up early on the weekends. It’s all good.
I left work at 3:00 ish and was pretty much starving. I should also mention that this is probably the weekend I ate the least I’ve eaten in a long time, just on a count of being busy.
So I got myself to Baja Fish Taco (seriously I love this place. If you’re in OC, try it), got a Baja Bowl with grilled fish and headed to my sister’s house (where I was house-sitting) to sit in AC and be a sloth with her cat who doesn’t bother to come near me. I ate, watched Julie and Julia (which by the way I’m still not a fan of, but I was too tired to ever search through the channels) and took a nap.
Later, Jesse came over as I was mid way through A Walk to Remember. It was really a day of gems for me (I had completely forgotten how bad that movie is). I fell asleep at about 9pm and didn’t open my eyes until about 8:30 or 9 the next morning. It was fantastic.
Thank goodness for Labor Day. I’m not sure how I would have made it without this holiday.
Labor Day was spent doing some much needed cleaning, watching Catfish (I’m obsessed), grilling burgers and drinking beer. Jesse and I also saw Elysium, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
And now, after a day of crossfit at 6:00am and work. I just enjoyed an egg sandwich on leftover hamburger buns and a few dates with peanut butter.
I’m excited for this week. I have a potentially awesome treat planned to share with you later this week, and hopefully the cooking/baking can get back into full swing.
How was your Labor Day weekend?? Tell me what exciting things you did!
