We went to the "Dread Zeppelin" concert last Friday. It's a group that sings Led Zeppelin songs in a reggae style. The lead singer is a "300lb Elvis impersonator" who sings like Elvis. It was fun.
L and I went for several runs during last week. The weather was gorgeous and I was so happy to run outside....
At 8am I woke up to a loud helicopter close to my apt, when I saw the shadow of it through my blinds I jumped out of bed and exclaimed "Holy shit it's right outside our window!"
I was super amused watching it drop off AC units on the building across from us.

We went to Kaiser Tiger again. We love this place. Great beer selection and the food is delicious too.
Post Kaiser tiger, we went to Au Cheval for mixed drinks as a "dessert." Yum.
We also went to check out Vice District Brewing which just opened in the south loop. It's a nice taproom with 5 of their beers on draft (eventually will be 14!) and you can BYOF (bring your own food)
Later on Sunday I found the video of the NBC nightly news with Lester Holt which profiled some dog treat trucks around the country including our very own Fido to Go! I was excited to see if CB and I made the cut, which we did multiple times! CB loves his Fido treats and we were happy to see them get national exposure.
*My Daad insisted I add this screenshot of CB...
Poor Quality screenshot from the NBC segment. Im in the ratty green Toms with CB!
At PT it was mutually decided that I should take 4 weeks completely off running. There's still a lingering spot of minor discomfort on my Cankle that needs to cool down. I was happy to get in 19 miles of running in gorgeous weather last week before this decision was made....
I'm mainly concerned about long term success of getting rid of this chronic peroneal tendon issue. I want to avoid surgery in the future... and running through this extremely mild discomfort is just not worth it to me.
I came home Monday to see the laundry pods had jumped off the dryer after I went to work. The main question was "OH MY GOD DID CB EAT ANY!?!" After analyzing his behavior, looking around the house for throw up, and even offering him a laundry pod to eat (he refused) I concluded he was a GOOD BOY and didn't eat any. That was confirmed Tuesday when he didn't poop orange/blue or bubbles.
Monday night we saw the "super moon."
Tuesday we went to see Fido to go and CB was very happy.
Tuesday I also cooked quiches for the first time. Apple wood smoked gruyere cheese, spinach, onion, and red pepper quiches. So freaking delicious.
They came out amazing! And now I have a bunch. :) I cant wait to make more quiches with all different flavors...
Wednesday and Day 3 of 28 of no running I went to PT again and bought a resistance band because the ones I have at home are waaay too weak for my super duper strong hips. I'm able to do 96% of my PT exercises at home and wanted to add side steps and "monsters" to the routine. Yay PT, yay.
