Day trippin’ to Baltimore

Yesterday, Drew and I set off to go to Inner Harbor in Baltimore. Considering this being the closest city to me (next would be DC) it’s pretty exciting for this country gal! πŸ˜‰

First of all to start of the mini road trip we needed snacks:

Great choice for fuel…sugarrrrrr

We drove down and found a parking garage that didn’t want to steal ALL of my money. It ended up being in the perfect location and we could walk right into the harbor. It was an absolutely beautiful day in the high 70’s low 80’s for most of the day.

Drew kept singing “I”m on a boat, I’m on a boat!” No, Drew we were not on the boat

PS Obsessed with this lace shirt I got! Now i just want more lace things!

For lunch we decided on Pizzeria Uno. We sat on a deck outside and it was extremely relaxing and fun to people watch those in the harbor.

For lunch we shared a BBQ Chicken Pizza (What else!?) and Drew got Chicken Thumbs and fries. (Sorry I’m not sorry we eat like we are 5).

Yummmm…already ate a piece before I remember to take a picture πŸ™‚

It was delish! I could only eat about half the pizza and we took the rest with us..thankfully i brought my big purse!

We shopped around at the mall right next to the harbor and some of the smaller shops along the walkway.

We stopped to listen to some outside music and of course had a photo shoot duhhh

Got him to smile with teeth! This does not happen often people.

We definitely had a really fun day trip! I’m glad I have some places to go to that are in driving distance and doable in a day. Yesterday we considered our workout to be all the walking around the city we did! I honestly woke up with tight calves from being in flip flops for a long time for the first time in a while haha!

Where are some of your favorite places to visit in a day trip? Also what are you favorite road trip snacks? You saw ours above. πŸ™‚ Anyone else ever been to the Inner Harbor and love it too?

Sunny Day

Yesterday, the weather did this crazy thing… it was really weird.


AHHH! I am not sure if I could have ever been so excited to see the sun shining in my life. I did a happy little dance and then…

Went for a run! WOO HOO! Drew even came to visit for most of the week so we BOTH went for a run!

It may be cloudy in the back, but I was basking in the glory of the sun coming the other way!

So yay I’m out for a run…but guess who’s out of shape???

Yup. This girl. Holy crap!

The humidity yesterday for sure didn’t help considering I haven’t run in humid weather since…well since last fall…but still I felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest the entire run-not a fun feeling! This made me realize that it really doesn’t take long at all to get out of run shape- curses. Also I was super sore from my new body pump routine so that totally didn’t help anything, but I almost passed out DID IT!

After my run, we set out to Β fix Little Blue! And by we I mean I watched Drew do it.Β 

hi little blue! no i haven’t been neglecting you, you were just a little broken and i needed someone to help me- that’s all!

So basically since Drew was visiting..and he was going to help me change Blue’s tire that has needed changed for oohh like 3 weeks..haha oops. but i really didn’t know how to do it so I got a “Flat Tire Lesson”

Drew: “So then you blah blah blah, take this thingy out and put this thingy in and yadda yadda…” (lots of words/parts i don’t really understand…I’m not very handy or am capable of fixing things).

Me: “Don’t worry I understand everything you are saying, and when I’m stranded with a flat in the furthest possible distance of my bike ride- I’ll totally be able to do it all on my own!”

I’m not sure he’s convinced.

Okay so, I might need more practice! But uh, that will come later…

all fixed up! πŸ™‚

So then Drew and I went to ANOTHER bike shop yesterday (we know how to party). and then we went to the movies to see The Avengers! Which was awesome! If you haven’t seen it please do! I love Robert Downey, JR. he was so great in it. It was totally funny in unexpected spots!

Anyways- Today on Drew and I’s list is to go down to Inner Harbor in Baltimore! It’s only about an hour from where I live and I haven’t been in a few years so I’m really excited! Also I think the sun will be shining again!!

What is everyone up to on this Wednesday? What is your workout going to be? Β Mine will be doing all the walking around Baltimore! Also, anyone have any flat tire incidents they want to share!?
