weekend update: Pensacola, or Spring Fake #2

Monday, March 31

back again! a little tired, a lot sun-burned, but oh-so thankful for the trip I was able to make this weekend. Sundar and I had the best time! He cooked for me all weekend, we ran our hearts out on Saturday morning, and I got to meet his friends & see his current world in Pensacola, FL.

as for my first race in about two years, I was a bit nervous, but it was fun! Also special to run a race with my big brother. I won a commemorative pint glass- that's what I love, a gift I can use.

our post-race festivities included quinoa salad, the most wonderful afternoon nap, and then a trip to McGuire's Irish pub, followed by a arcade-type bar. does everyone know that I love skee ball?

Sunday I made Sundar go to the beach with me, and it was a beautiful day!

when we got back from the beach we had time for one more grill-out and some homemade salsa, before I hit the road back to Nashville. pretty much the perfect end to a weekend I throughly enjoyed.

man I love my brother. he had me laughing all weekend long! there's something that made me feel very content about a few days spent with good food and a great companion! very few things can beat time spent with my siblings, I think, and I'm already scheming about who I can see next!

also, I can't wait to go back to Pensacola Beach.

but for now, I can't wait to go home and take a nap.

What a fun weekend!! It's great that your brother lives close enough to drive and you were able to spend some time with him. That salsa looks AMAZING and is definitely making me want some. Yum!

thanks girl! it was super super easy, all fresh ingredients: crushed & diced tomatoes, cilantro, onions, garlic, salt, jalapenos. we just mixed them all together & done!

aww your weekend with your brother sounded so action packed! congrats on the race and a celebration of beers and skee ball afterwards sounds perfect. Is your brother in the army?
