This past weekend was a whirlwind of fun, as one of my best friends from Chicago came to visit me again. Every year her niece has a national swimming competition in Orlando, and the last two years she’s made a point of coming to visit me before the competition starts. This means so much to me, as I have spoken before about how making friends when you are older seems to be more of a challenge.
She flew in Saturday morning and after getting settled we went straight to the beach. The temperature outside was perfect, and there was just enough cloud cover to keep us from getting heat exhaustion. There’s nothing like good friends and the beach to make for the perfect day.
Saturday night we went out for dinner and went to a St. Patty’s day party at the mall. There was a live band, and we enjoyed great music and even better people watching. Our new term for the weekend was “observating” and we honestly couldn’t have had more fun.
Sunday we went to a cool place in Tampa called “Armature works” which is basically a fancy adult style (yet family friendly) food court. We enjoyed great weather, great food, and amazing Irish music out on the patio. Sunday night we went to dinner and watched the movie “A Star is born.”
Monday we went for lunch in Ybor city, and enjoyed more people watching before I took her to the train station.
Needless to say, I didn’t run or work out but did do my Yoga workout and plank Monday night.
Weekends like these help me get through crazy work weeks, and I couldn’t be happier (or more tired, LOL) than I am today.
How was your weekend? Did you celebrate St. Patty’s day?
