It’s been such a fun weekend filled with exploring around the city and meeting new people! Even with the crazy weather, we still had a blast!
We started off the weekend with a run. This Texas weather is so bad even at 7am. It was a rough four miles but they got done! Jordan and I were soaked with sweat afterwards.
After some breakfast and relaxing on the couch, we decided to take some photos around town. Jordan had been keeping an eye on the weather since we were expecting rain. Even though it was the middle of the day and the light may not have been ideal, we didn’t want to get caught in the rain.
There is a building in East Downtown that used to be a concert venue. It has since been abandoned but the many graffiti artists of Houston have used it as a canvas for their art. There are so many different pieces all around the building. In fact, most of East Downtown, or EaDo as it is know to the locals, is covered with awesome murals and street art. I hope to explore more another weekend and see more of the cool murals.
Jordan and I were in the mood for some lunch so we decided to try a new place. We stopped at the iconic Ninfa’s on Navigation. This place is a huge part of Houston history and has been at this location for decades. Jordan and I shared some epic fajitas and of course I forgot to take a picture! While we were enjoying lunch, a crazy storm hit the area. The power went out in the restaurant and the parking lot was started to flood. Y’all, it was definitely an adventure getting back home! Even with the rain, we had a blast.
Once we got home, the crazy storms had passed and we relaxed on the couch. I remembered that our library has a MovieBox program pretty similar to RedBox. We are able to check out three movies for three days with our library card. We picked the new Power Rangers movie along with both John Wick movies. After the Power Rangers movie and some skinny bean dip for dinner, we called it a night!
Jordan and I went on our morning walk and planned our day. Normally I would go with him to church but I was invited to a networking brunch event and I couldn’t say no to that!
I have been in contact with Aubray though social media. She is one of those girls that you find and you just connect with! She told me about this awesome group of ladies in Houston who were meeting up for brunch. I was a bit nervous since it was my first event like this but I honestly had a blast!
There is something about connecting with others who are passionate about the same things you are. Even though we are all in different stages of our blogging, it was really neat to hear everyone’s stories!
After brunch, I came home and my husband declared the day a lazy day. He handled the laundry while I was stuck on the couch since Snowflake sat on me. She has been really attached to me lately and has been sitting ON ME. It’s fine until my leg falls asleep or I start to sweat. Regardless, we finished our movies and had a sweat treat from Sonic when we took them back to the library.
Tomorrow is the official start to my half marathon training! Its a rest day but I will be focusing on eating better. I plan to reduce the amount of dairy I eat for the next few weeks and see what it does with my training. I’m excited to see how it will go!
Were your weekend plans affected by the rain?
