Thanksgiving Weekend Success

In case you were curious, I DID run the Seattle Marathon and actually finished without killing myself. It was a close call, and I will do a full recap later in the week.

I was lazy and didn't check in at all last week! I had Thursday (Thanksgiving) off, so Milo and I headed over to my parents' house on the Peninsula of Washington. I had a brilliant idea of covering my backseat with a tarp because I knew after this happened, we were never going to make a 3 hour drive without some Milo throw-up.

I was so glad I had that tarp down this time! Poor little dude got sick twice on the way over. The tarp made clean up SO much easier, though.

You can already see the panic in the eyes!

We got to my parents' house for dog-a-polooza. They recently adopted a two year old golden retriever named Maizey. I, unfortunately did not get a good photo of her with my phone, but she is a beauty! And is she full of energy or what?!

The pups played around like crazy idiots for a day and completely wore themselves out.

My family decided to go out to eat for Thanksgiving this year. There were only 4 of us and since we have to cook a big dinner in a few weeks for Christmas, we just figured it would be easier. 

I am not a big fan of Thanksgiving food, so it was a-okay with me!

I didn't take any photos of food, unfortunately, but we went to a great "European fusion" (as my step-uncle called it) restaurant and everything was FABULOUS. I seriously can't believe how great all the food was! We had wine, cheese plates, prosciutto wrapped prawns and beet salad. I got beef tenderloin for dinner that was topped with sauteed mushrooms and melted cheese. Mmm-mm good!

I got a run in earlier on Thanksgiving day. About 6 miles, none of which felt awesome, and made me slightly nervous for the marathon.

Milo and I had to head back Thanksgiving night, so we hopped in the car shortly after we got home from dinner. 

After a lump scare on Milo Saturday, I was all a flutter for the Marathon on Sunday morning. I'll take you through that train wreck next time. Have a great Monday!
