Weekending {3/1}

Pause for a minute. How is it MARCH already? I am in totally shock. One minute, the year is crawling by and the next, finals are 6 weeks away.

So lets dive in to the last weekend of February (and *hopefully* winter). Here is what I ate, who I saw, and what I did (ahem, wedding dress!):

Friday: Errands, meetings, and study time.

I had several meetings, all school related, on Friday. One was at Panera, so I sampled one of their new broth bowls for lunch. Have you tried this? Thoughts?

I liked it, though I am afraid to check the sodium/sugar content in it. But it was full of edamame, which I LOVE. Salad and wheat roll on the side :)

On Friday night, AR and I grabbed our main dishes from Whole Foods and baked sweet potatoes and steamed broccoli at home. I had salmon, AR had barbecue chicken. For dessert? Whole Foods vegan peanut butter chocolate chip cookie and a ginger cookie.

We shared our cookies while catching up on Nashville (love this show. We watch it every weekend).

Saturday: Race, practice, errands, and friends.

I had SO many layers on!

We started Saturday bright and early with a 5k at our church. It was so cold (like 20*), I really thought I would die. Honestly, I don't run outside in the cold much, so this was brutal for me. My lungs will probably never be the same.

I finished in 24:12, so not a PR, but okay :)

We barely had time to run home, shower, and then I had to head to practice for my moot court team. Giving 45 minutes worth of speeches after running a freezing 5k is not my idea of a good time, but I pulled through.

In the afternoon, AR and I went to Target, Ulta, and Whole Foods. I recently tried the bareMinerals complexion rescue (LOVE), so I wanted to try the mineral veil as well. Ulta had a special on it -- 40% off -- so this was a great time. So far, I like it a lot.

We met friends for dinner at Alma Cocina downtown. AR always has his car cleaned and his shoes shined before our dates, which I love that he does. That man goes all out for every date <3

At dinner, we split lots of guacamole, salsa, chips, and tacos. I had bites of a fried avocado taco and a friend cod taco, with a side of greens. Oh, and there was lots of sangria :)

Sunday: School, THE DRESS, and dinner

I didn't run on Sunday, but instead let my legs rest. I did lots of studying and then back to the bridal store I loved the best for a third appointment.

And I FOUND MY DRESS!! All by myself! The manager (who happens to be from my home town several states away - random) had already pulled it before I got there. When I walked in, she said "I think I found your dress" and she was so right. Of course, no pictures until the big day, but I am so excited :) 

Thank you for the many comments and emails about my last dress shopping experience. Y'all made me feel so much better and convinced me that going by myself wasn't weird at all. Y'all are the best.
