What a week and I can say with conviction – Thank GOD It’s Friday! 🙂
My weekend started off with a trip to the gym. I love working out on Friday afternoons – the gym is empty, and it gives me a much-needed energy boost for Friday night activities!
On the agenda today?
- 3-Mile Run
I definitely utilized my new toy on my run today and ohmygod.
I may have found a way to make dreadmill running enjoyable. It honestly felt like 5 minutes. Had it not been Friday afternoon, I think I could have run for another hour, no joke. (And this is someone who hates the dreadmill with every inch of her being).
On my way home, I stopped off to pick up a few goodies for some upcoming festivities this weekend – we have a jam-packed weekend coming up and I couldn’t be more excited for it!
Dinner was one of my absolute favorites – Homemade Pizza!
- TJ’s Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
- BBQ Sauce
- The last of the Beer Butt Chicken
- Baby arugula
- Chopped red onion
- Pesto brushed over the crust
On the side? A new (and very tasty) find!
We picked up this Francis Ford Coppola Director’s Cut 2008 Zinfandel at BevMo this afternoon and it is SO tasty! If you’re a Zin (or red!) fan – definitely worth trying! (And an aerator is always a good idea with red wine – I refuse to pour a glass without it!)
We use the Vinturi aerator (they make them for both red/white) and it’s a great way to open up the wine immediately so you get a better flavor when you drink it.
It’s time to dig into our latest creation, enjoy said wine, relax and watch the Giants game before we’re off to do some birthday celebrating with friends later tonight!
Have a great Friday evening!
