I'm excited to see what 13.5 will throw at us. I'm a little worried that it's going to be pull-ups. Actually, I'm 99% sure that there will be pull-ups. Which will make the workout incredibly short for me. But... we'll see. Maybe I'll get lucky... or incredibly strong in 5 days.
It has been an incredibly gorgeous weekend here in Seattle. I think it hit 70 today -- or at least close to it. It's been fantastic. It was so nice to get outside and enjoy the nice weather with friends at a BBQ yesterday. I forget how much I love BBQ-ing. It's so summery. Yeah summer!
BBQ-ing gave me a chance to flex my skills in the kitchen. I made bacon wrapped dates, bacon pecan brussel sprouts and blueberry peach crumble. (Notice a trend? We're lucky I didn't put bacon in the crumble too.) I probably would have made four more dishes if I wouldn't have felt like that was maybe just a bit extreme. Apparently, I love having an excuse to cook for people other than me. It's just so much more fun. Tara also made chocolate chip cookies and guacamole and we snacked on chips, salsa, and beer... so... needless to say - my kitchen was a DISASTER yesterday. It was like trying to do Thanksgiving... tons of dishes and strategic planning with the oven. Perfect day!
