The name of the game this weekend was OAMAP (outside as much as possible!) Here’s what we’ve been up to over these gorgeous¬†past couple of days, as seen through the lens of my iPhone. (A concept borrowed from my bestie Laura!)

PF Changs won out because frankly Ben and I are both always craving it but are unwilling to pay the price (both money and calorie wise) for dinner entrees.

Afterwards we hit the green for 9 holes under beautiful, sunny skies. It was hot but the course had a great breeze running throughout.

While he putted, I held the flag and together we walked nine holes. With the hills and such, it was actually a great little workout!

Our day ended where it had the night before. Back on my parents porch, under sunny skies. Can it always be like this? : )

I ran outside today!!!!!!!!!!! It was me, the trail, the creek, the birds, the frogs, the sunshine and the cloudless sky – for 4.2 glorious miles! I even saw a cardinal – yes! You all must seriously think I’m bi-polar after this post… eek! :D So I’ve narrowed down my…
