Weekend Re-cap

Hello amigos and Happy Monday!
So here's my weekend re-cap...
I woke up relatively early on Saturday morning and decided to go for an easy run. My ultra-marathoner friend Michelle, gave me a cool headband called Chica Bands, so I put it on to see just how good they are.

I was very impressed with the Chica Band because it actually stayed on! I happen to think that I have an egg-shaped head, so headbands usually fall off my head. Well, not the Chica Band! She stayed on the whole time. The band actually fit snugly on my head and it wasn't too tight. It also kept my hair off of my face. I hate feeling hair on my face or neck while I run.
Here's the cool thing about Chica Bands:
1. It's a non-slip, non-binding head band.
2. It's affordable, functional and fashionable.
3. There's a ton of cool designs.
If these headbands don't fall off on the fastest runners, they will surely not fall off on us! =)

Somehow, I managed to drag Milo (hubby) out of bed so he could run with me. Milo isn't much of a runner, but he obliged to my request. I promised him we would run at an easy and conversational pace. I took him through Coconut Grove and then we stopped here for a brief moment to see the beautiful sunrise.
After our run, we ate a hearty breakfast of hard-boiled eggs, oatmeal and coffee. We ran a few errands and did some last minute Father's Day shopping. I don't recommend that to anyone. The mall was so crowded it took us about 20 minutes to park. UGH!
On Sunday morning we woke up and quickly got ready to go out for a boat ride in Key Biscayne. Milo's brother coordinated the outing and it was absolutely spectacular. The weather was warm, bright and just perfect. We docked the boat in a sandbar and we stayed there for a few hours. I was happy because I worked on my tan =).
After the boat ride, Milo and I went to my parent's house for dinner. We helped my dad cook on the barbecue and we played Dominoes with my mom. My family ate flank steak, rice, beans and yucca, but I opted for salmon, asparagus and eggplant. It was a nice family gathering.

What did you do this weekend?
I'm grateful that I spent Father's
Day with my dad =).
