I feel like I probably say this every time I post a weekend recap, but this weekend was seriously the best.
It can’t be a bad thing that each weekend seems to be better than the last, right? Even though I didn’t recap it, I promise last weekend was the best too Let’s jump right in…
Our ride actually ended up being closer to 25 miles, but we broke it up with a picnic at the halfway point. Russell brought crackers, cheese, hummus, salami, bell peps, and wine…Are my eating habits easy to figure out or what? We didn’t coordinate and both ended up bringing Reeses because
we’re obsessed it’s amazing.
The next morning, I hopped in the car with my brother and we headed to Santa Rosa to see our family. We gathered to send off my cousin Neal, who is embarking on a yearlong cross-country rock climbing road trip, and to celebrate the birth of his brother (my other cousin)’s daughter, Paislee. Isn’t she adorable??
Instead of going for a long run (umm I think the 25 miler probably counts for my weekend exercise!), we fueled up with brunch before our softball games. My team lost badly, as we always do. Nothing a beer at University of Beer, a new spot that recently opened downtown, couldn’t fix! And of course…French fries.
Oh, and this also happened. My best friend tagged me in the now infamous Ice Bucket Challenge. I was on the fence about actually doing it because California is experiencing a severe drought. We decided to re purpose the ice water that had been keeping our beers cold, so no wasting was done! If you’re my Facebook friend you can see the video here.

And that’s all she wrote. Have a great week!
What food would you bring on a picnic?
