Update #1 | 33 in 33 for 33

And we’re back to our regularly scheduled blogging. How was your weekend? Mine was nothing that I expected it to be but still great. All of my plans got cancelled but I just ended up hanging out with my husband all weekend long, which was fantastic.

I’ve struck 6 items all the list thus far and I have a lot more things in the works.
Bike Ride
This weekend the husband and I drove over to East Potomac Park in Washington, DC and he ran the 3.1 mile loop and I rode my bike. I haven’t been on my bike in years (it was in my sister’s storage unit for the last 5 years) but I finally dusted her off and took her for a spin. I will admit, everyone was passing me and I do not look cute in a helmet but I was happy that I went for a ride. I think I’ll be going for more bike rides while my husband is training for a marathon.
Lacy Cowl
I also finished one of my knitting projects from my Stitch DC Knitting 201 Class this weekend. YAY! This is a lacey cowl and I used a yarn that changes color. I love the pattern and how it came out and I only had to start it over 4 times, which is way better than my last project.
farmers market salad
I also finally bought fresh produce at Millers Farm for the last two weekends in a row. It is such a cute place and they have a shop connected to the grocery with homemade ice cream and pies. I also bought squash and cooked it for the first time for my Mom.
Squash
That’s technically crossing one of the items off my list, cooking a new vegetable even though I’ve eaten squash before. Hey, I’m trying to find a way to cram it all in!

So that’s a bit of what I did this weekend, what’d you do?
