weekend in pictures {and instagrams}


This weekend was all of relaxing, eventful, and too short. The short seems to be a recurring theme, but between an inaugural Tampa blogger meetup and Tim having the whole weekend off, it was full of wonderful.

Friday night, nine Tampa bloggers met up at Fly Bar for dinner and drinks. A few had to go early, and I didn't get a picture until later in the night. It was a lot of fun, and it's so nice to see familiar faces from online actually in person! I look forward to next time! And thanks to Becca for letting me borrow a dollar when I mentioned that I ran a toll coming down because I couldn't scrape up the change.

Also...if you're a Tampa blogger and we don't know it, let me know! Nichole made a page for us and I can send it to you and also ensure that you know when the next planned event is.

On Saturday morning, Tim and I headed down to the Saturday Morning Market in St. Pete with our friends Austin and Debbie. I love the market; you can find so much stuff there: produce, plants, treats, food trucks, and delicious homemade food products. We left relatively unscathed, but I did pick up some delicious homemade pickles that are no longer in our possession (I love pickles). The foods were yummy, and if I hadn't withheld we definitely would have come home with jellies, pastries, and several of the crafts I saw.
 Now a continuation of the day, but also an explanation of the pictures below. After the market we went to Dick's sporting goods to use a $25 off any purchase coupon that was expiring, and I scored two of my favorite Camelbak water bottles that I posted about as a workout essential for $4.97! It's the little things sometimes I tell you. Normally they're quite a bit more. 

We then headed for burgers at Burger 21, where I got sweet potato fries and a cinco burger with jalapenos and guac. Yum. And some of you may have the same problem as me, but I view many types of food as a vehicle for condiments. One of the reasons I love burger 21 is because of their amazing ketchup bar. The yellow one is scotch bonnet mango ketchup, then there is Thai ketchup, honey something or another (like honey mustard), and of course the old standby.
The middle picture is a bit out of order. I stole a picture of us at Burger 21.

The two bottom outside ones are from Sunday. We went to breakfast after my long run, and I was so thankful to have Tim for two days in a row off work on the same days as me that I wanted to capture another picture. I have no idea the last time it happened we had two days off in a row together. I'm so thankful for him, and I don't think I really make that clear around here that much. And the last picture? It was my amazing 12 mile run Sunday. I felt fantastic; I think it was a combination of new music, a few rest days this week, pasta that I had Saturday night, and a mentality of just letting my body do what it wanted rather than holding it back to a pace.

Oh, and a sneak peek for an upcoming post. Tim actually snapped a few outfit pics of me while we were at the market! I'll post those soon.

How were your weekends? And random question if you feel so inclined...do you love ketchup or other condiments?
