Eric and I laid low all weekend. Eric is sort of sick, which means I am more than likely getting sick, which meant lots of rest and TV watching. Plus it just got cold here, so hello winter hibernation!
I’m a little bit ashamed to admit that we participated in Black Friday. But I’m also a little bit proud because we scored some killer deals. We didn’t wake up early or anything, and most of the places we went were near empty, but it was still nice to pick up a few things for the cheap. I think we went to a total of 5 bike stores on Friday?
We ventured into center city later in the day and headed to American Apparel. A few weeks ago Groupon had a deal where you could get $50 worth of merchandise for only $25. Eric and I each bought one, and on Black Friday American Apparel had everything for 20%. So we bought $62 worth of merchandise for only $25. Score!
I bought some socks and tights, and Eric got a ton of underwear and shirts.
Saturday morning I got up and started baking cookies. We already went through our Thanksgiving desserts and I was in the mood for Christmas cookies. I’m doing a cookie cookbook review later this week, so here is just a sneak peek.
And that’s the extent of photos from Saturday. We actually didn’t leave the house at all. Instead Eric did major maintenance on all of our bikes.
Despite freezing temperatures, I was determined to wake up Sunday and get outside and do something.
I guess now I should talk about how I am injured from running. I hurt my foot during the last half to the point where it hurts to walk. I can’t really stand on it for more than 5 minutes without a lot of pain. So I am taking some time off. One week down, and hopefully only another week or two to go! But luckily I can ride my bike pain free.
Eric and I set out on a bike ride in the morning with really no plan.
I have so much more respect for firefighters now (not that I didn’t before, but I had never seen them in action). They seemed to get everything under control fairly quickly, and from checking around online I don’t think anyone was injured, and the surrounding homes were not badly damaged.
