Howdy, friends.  Hope you all had a nice weekend!  I took full advantage my 3-day weekend; it was so nice to have a little “break” from everything related to school.  Friday night my sister and I drove to the shore together and drank some vino (sorry mom and dad, hope I didnt steal a good bottle of wine…woops!), made dinner and watched Crazy, Stupid, Love (great movie, by the way…you should check it out!).  It was a nice and relaxing night!

We made yet another great recipe from How Sweet Eats- Roasted Pumpkin Baked Penne!  Well- she actually used butternut squash. But we had a cooking pumpkin on hand so we decided to sub it in for the squash. I decided on Friday that I like pumpkin better than butternut squash.  What do you like better? anyway…the meal came out GREAT…WE LOVED IT.  and absolutely devoured the entire thing.  The photos below are from How Sweet Eats… not trying to steal her thunder!

 

Another quote just because I feel like it…

On Saturday morning, Mary and I ran 10 miles along the beach.  It was beautiful out (yet VERY windy).  While I was running along I stopped running for a moment and just looked at the ocean for a bit.  It was absolutely BEAUTIFUL.  There was a sense of calm and peacefulness that made me so happy.  It was one of those moments that you thought to yourself…. WOW. I AM LUCKY. Lucky to not only have the ability to run but to be be where I was, to be living the life I live, to be have such amazing people (family, friends, etc)  in my life, to have  the opportunities that I have, etc.  I am very lucky.  Sometimes it easy to lose sight of that.  But every once in awhile it is nice to take a step back from the craziness of life so you can realize just how incredibly blessed you are.

On sunday I went to the Eagles game. They lost (as per usual these days) but I still had a fun time nonetheless!

Q: What did you do this weekend?
