0 finding snow in may

over the weekend we did quite a bit, part of that had to do with the fact that it was a long weekend and part of that had to do with some family coming to town   & a baby shower & a bbq & a dinner & games & yeah . . . we decided that for our extra weekend day we would go for a hike up in the mountains. the goal was to reach solitude lake, but since the trails were covered in snow we sort of missed the lake, but we did find water! it was a little chilly but so beautiful! in fact the whole experience was so great we decided that it needed to be a weekly event, nothing like a little nature to rejuvenate you & get you ready for the week! the baby shower meant that i got to bake which meant that got to have a cupcake for breakfast. i accidentally bought too many strawberries & ivan came up with the ingenious idea to make some chocolate covered strawberries {accompanied with wine of course}. oh! oh! this week is the first week of my official training for my second half marathon! i'm really excited about it - so excited in fact that i even went running in the rain - which was pretty great! i felt so bad ass! i mean the rain beating on my face & the music blaring in my ears & the legs that just kept going {i think i need to get a gray jumpsuit}.

we're always game for zombie games!

the snow was really, really deep in some places - shorts may not have been "proper attire" for this particular hike

                                                                                                                     sometimes i let hiking get to my head

these were so good that i kept eating them even after my stomach started yelling at me - "what was that stomach? you're full? i couldn't give a rat's ass! more chocolate covered strawberries please!"
dessert for breakfast + eggs = heaven
because the drowned rat look is so hot right now
