Weekend Highlights

All of the House of Cards


J is pretty obsessed, so I spent approximately 12 hours watching this political drama this weekend. I have to say its quite different than the last two seasons -- SPOILER for s2: Frank as president is interesting and a new type of manipulation from season 1 and 2. It was kind of cool that this season was a bit more realistic. I thought they kind of jumped the shark with season 2, but this did bring it back to reality a bit, but it didn't have all the exciting have to keep watching drama of season 1. If we weren't binge watching, I'm not sure how excited I would have been to keep watching these episodes if they were instead airing week after week. So that's my general House of Cards season 3 review.

A Sunday Afternoon Run Club Run

legs up against the wall
Anne, a fellow oiselle flockster, told me about the Lansing running group when I moved here in October, but I never made it to an event until yesterday. I met up with some awesome people, and ran 9 miles around East Lansing. It was exactly what I needed after Austin -- a reminder that I can run 9 miles without walk breaks and without stopping for much other than a few stoplights and a single bathroom break. And then followed by a beer and chili and crack fries at hopcat. What more could you want?

Breakfast at Theio's

Typical diner breakfast, but I opted for pancakes with my eggs to fuel the 9 miler (because I'm not eating bread :crying face emoji: more on that later), and they were as big as my head. sold!

Yoga at Firefly Hot Yoga Bar

Man, this was the weekend for new fitness experiences. On Saturday afternoon I went to Firefly Hot Yoga Bar for the first time. I attended their free(!!) slow burn, and it was great. It was weird for me to not do a vinyasa class -- that's totally what I'm used to, but this series flowed as well, and really stretched me out. Plus I was totally sweating through it -- thanks heated room!

Pioneer Woman's Pot Roast

Yup. As always, Jessica was right. This is pretty phenomenal. I didn't by the appropriate cut of beef (because lets be honest, I very rarely buy meat), but it still turned out great. My next shot at it will probably include potatoes though. Because what is pot roast without potatoes?
