How was the weekend?!
Not long enough?
(I know, right?!)
Sooooo Friday night Eric and I went to a housewarming party for some friends...where I didn't take any photos. Oops.
Saturday morning, I got mah hair did and then decided to take G funk on a walk. Last week, this is what I was leaving at home when I went to work... :(
She knows I put on my shoes right before I leave so she climbed on some of the pairs I had out...
So, I opted for some quality time with G dog on Saturday afternoon. :) I took her to Turkey Mountain to go walk/hike. Once we got started, I quickly realized we (1) had no idea where we were going (2) were likely going to get lost and (3) I didn't want her to get bitten by some slithery woodland creature.
|"C'mon, mom! What's taking you so long?!"|
So, after about 30 minutes, I decided to take her to the dog park instead. :) I think she was already a little tuckered out from her adventures because she snubbed some of the dogs trying to play with her and preferred sitting on my lap.
Saturday night, headed to watch the Drillers baseball game with friends. :)
Sunday morning, we headed to breakfast with Eric's family for Mother's Day. :) Then, I headed to lunch with my mom afterward. We were going to cook out at our house, but his sis had to be at work, so we just did two different things this year. Bummed that I didn't take a single photo of either celebration. Blah. Lame.
So, with a full stomach and still REALLY wanting to hike (per my last post ranting about wanting to do something new), Eric came with me on Sunday back out to Turkey Mountain ready to take on the urban wilderness. We took the yellow trail, got sidetracked and ended up on the blue trail, and then ended up on the yellow trail again. Who knows how we managed that, but whatever.
It took us just under two hours to hike around 5 miles, stopping for random photos (of course). I'd never been to Turkey Mountain (how do I call myself a Tulsan?!) so it was pretty cool! We passed some trail runners, mountain bikers, etc, but it really wasn't that busy... :) It was quite gorgeous! I was surprised we have such a cool place to hike/bike/etc so close.
|No this isn't part of a trail. This is Eric and Jackie going rogue on our hiking adventures.|

Overall a great weekend! Eric and I had a chat about how I tend to overbook myself. Case in point, after hiking, I was like "Oh, we could go plant flowers at home!" He was like "You're doing it again." haha.. I think I need a lesson in just chilling out sometimes. Instead, we went and ate a Chinese buffet and ate our weight in fried rice. Hey, hiking makes you HUNGRY, people! ;)
Oh.. asthma update... THANK YOU for all the comments about how some of you guys have exercise induced asthma, too! I felt even more justified in my belief. And, after emailing with a couple of you, I was 100% sure that's what it was. I made it to the doctor today and it was an accurate diagnosis! I just picked up my inhaler and am gonna give it a shot before Crossfit tonight. Wish me luck!
GG finale tonight, people... I'm excited... :)
