Above all else, I was extremely productive. I ran many errands, and cleaned both my room and my car. I also did a lot of cooking, and a lot of running, two of my favorite things, as you all know.
Let's start with Friday. It was jeans day at work, and I took the liberty of wearing my snazzy new feather earrings, pictured below. I also ate a pop tart, because after all, it was Friday.

Saturday morning I got creative with my leftover spicy cauliflower that I told you about in my last post. I mixed it in with some scrambled eggs and hot sauce, and it literally made my day. I think I'm finally coming off of that pancake kick that I was on for, ehhhh, the past 8 years. But seriously, ever since I got the flu post-Boston and threw up some chocolate-chip pancakes I made, I'm more apt to go with the eggs for breakfast. TMI?
Saturday night got a little less healthy, as I caved and had a poncho-clad Cinco De Mayo drink with my roomies. See below.

And now, here we are; Sunday. As mentioned, I hiked down on the Maryland/Virginia border with a friend from work. Most of the trail was rocky and followed along the Potomac River, so the views were pretty gorgeous, I can't deny that. It wasn't hiking in the mountains... but what can you do.
Overall, I can't complain about the weekend. I logged a solid 15 miles, did some killer P90x abs, and got A LOT done. Furthermore, I came to an important conclusion: the past few weeks, I haven't necessarily been fair to Maryland.
I've recently taken up the hobby of making snippy comments about the East Coast; mostly generalities about the population and its priorities, traffic, the weather, etc. It's a LARGE population of government workers, many who are very money and status driven, many who couldn't give two shits about you and your livelihood, many who will stare you down if you choose to run errands in your sweats.
I always have, and I always will run my errands in sweats on the weekends. Sue me.
It's been an adjustment to getting the stares, seeing that many stores/restaurants in Foco didn't even enforce a shirt & shoes policy. Kidding... kind of?
Where am I going with this rant? I miss Colorado like crazy. But I don't think I've given Maryland a fair chance yet to make a solid judgement. My first few months in Colorado were rocky as well, and sometimes I forget that it hasn't even been 3 months out there yet. So, in attempt to be fair, I'm going to try to refrain from making a judgement on living in this part of the country until I hit the the 6 month mark.
I'll revisit this topic then.
Have a fantastic week, and a very happy Monday.
