Love & Running: A Weekend Recap

Good morning to you!
I didn't really want to wake up this morning, and Angelo claims he tried waking me up twice before I finally rolled out of bed at 6:45 am. Just one of those mornings.
Mondays are always hard when you have a wonderful weekend! This weekend was filled with love & running! Sophia ran in the Jr. Gasparilla Distance Classic Saturday morning and she dominated the competition! :) It's in her blood. This was her 2nd year participating and she loves it!
My valentine's. All day, every day!
Warming up
Winner winner chicken dinner!

After the race, we went on a family Valentine's adventure (along with grandparents!) to Piquant in Hyde Park. Nelpe asked for one of everything in the bakery case, and all I wanted was a delicious latte!
I ordered their Heartbreaker latte with almond milk. It has dark chocolate & cinnamon. YUM!

As we sat in Piquant, I looked around and thought to myself. Valentine's Day weekend is probably the most unromantic weekends to go out. I mean for romance involved when it's the busiest day of the year for restaurants. Any other day will do. :) Spread love always!

Saturday night Angelo planned to grill steaks and lobster tails for dinner. BUT, because the Lebron James Fashion Show was on TV, he completely charred the steaks.
The lobster tails were saved, and he ran to the grocery store to get two new steaks. They turned out perfect! Nothing like that picture. :) 

Dessert included CakePopsByLu!
I'm IN LOVE with her new Cookies & Cream flavor.

Sunday, we did a 10 mile run and were completely exhausted afterwards. We took Friday & Saturday off from running and it definitely showed. We made a run to Costco to stock up for the week and called it a day. Mexican for dinner and the SNL 40th anniversary show on the TV rounded out a perfect weekend. 

Hope you had a great weekend! 

How was your valentine's Day? 
Did you spend it with family, friends, or a special someone?



  1. Looks like a wonderful Valentine's Day as a family! I'm glad new steaks were had :)

  2. Not a big Valentine's Day fan either but my husband and I do have a one tradition for the holiday. Feel free to check it out at
