I hope you all had an amazing weekend no matter what you were doing.
My weekend involved lots of this:
Prepping for my upcoming certification weekend is fun, but I am still getting nervous. I just want the weekend to be here NOW! 🙂
I made a BIG pot of chicken noodle soup for my little sister. She actually lives a couple of blocks away from me and is getting over strep throat. She told me the soup would make her feel better, and I couldn’t say no to the request! I pulled out our Le Cruiset for the very first time (it was a wedding gift!) and I love it. I can’t wait to make more soups in it.
I threw every veggie we own into a bowl and called it dinner. Yum!
Sunday morning started with my final long run in my half marathon training. I can’t believe how fast I ran those twelve miles…sometimes the body is just amazing. I am very happy with the pace I was able to maintain and will post a training recap post later this week.
After my 12 mile run, I made a loaf of Julie’s (Peanut Butter Fingers) Pumpkin Banana Loaf for Brian and I had to sample a piece…Boy is that stuff good!
Nothing too exciting happening at the Rochford residence, but still a great weekend.
Based on this post, here are a few similar ones you should check out.

I loved that chicken soup ! I need to do it more often and maybe sneek in some pumpkin too!
Oh yes, there are some stubborn ones – they really have no idea what they are missing.
Pumpkin in soup sounds delicious!! 🙂
i LOVE my le cruiset dutch oven and use it all winter long!
I loved it this time and cannot wait to use it again!! I feel so fancy while using it 🙂
So jealous of your la creuset dish! Confession: I cannot wait to get married just so I can register for all la creuset dishes lol. Please don’t judge me!
Davida, that is one of the GREATEST things about getting married…all of the amazing and generous gifts!! 🙂 Not judging at all!
That 12 miles was amazing – you’re a beast!!! 🙂
Chicken noodle soup is the best when you have a sore throat – especially strep…that is no fun!!
We went out with friends (sans kids!) Saturday night and had a blast! 🙂
How fun to have a parent only night!! Glad you enjoyed it 🙂
Nice job on the 12 miles!
The weekend was full of lots of great things! I love when weekends are relaxed but so much fun!
YES! Weekends need to be relaxing…so I can get ready for the busy week!
Awww…so nice of you to make chicken soup for your sister! I love the Le Cruiset line of cookware! I have a couple pieces at home, but I’d love to get a pot like yours.
It’s awesome for soup, Holly. And it looks pretty too!! 🙂
I love pulling out wedding gifts and using them for the first time. 1 year and 3 months later, we’re still doing that, and it’s fun!
I couldn’t run the Monumental this year, but I’ll be volunteering at the expo on the Friday before the race!
I would LOVE to meet you…what booth will you be at!! AND How lucky that you still have unused wedding gifts! FUN!
I ran my last half marathon, ever! Happy about that! (:
OMG! That is a HUGE accomplishment! 🙂
