Weekend Road Trip: Sweet Home Alabama

This weekend I took a mini road trip to hang out in middle-of-nowhere Alabama. I packed up some healthy snacks, tried to convince Salem I wasn't leaving him for good, and hit the road. 2014-06-20 14.06.40

2014-06-20 15.48.33I went there to hang out with someone awesome (hinthint winkwink say no more) and explore an area I've never been to. When he was last in town I took him to one of my favorite museums, the Naval Aviation Museum, so he returned the favor and escorted me around the Army Aviation Museum. Ever since I watched the 14 hour documentary The War I've been so fascinated about military history.

2014-06-21 11.35.20We went and saw 22 Jump Street Saturday afternoon which I thought was hilarious. I watched This is The End recently and I can never look at Channing Tatum the same. That night we cooked a delicious veggie stir fry with brown rice and chicken (his) and faux chicken (hers.) After dinner we both had a major sweet tooth so this happened. I think this is the first real ice cream I've had in years (I usually do frozen yogurt or Arctic Zero.) 2014-06-21 19.00.53My life will never be the same. I think the pint was gone within 10 minutes. Hey - 80/20 ya'll, it's all about moderation.

Sunday we played disc golf. Well, he and a friend played and I was the unofficial cheerleader/score keeper. It's hot as hell in the South right now so even going out as early as we did it was pretty painful. Fortunately, I was occupied with picking wild blackberries for a while and that totally made up for the heat.

2014-06-22 10.11.29On both the drive there and back I ran into some nasty weather. I HATE driving at night or in the rain as my vision is atrocious, so of course I hit rain both times. And of course I was stupid enough to take a photo of it.

2014-06-20 17.20.48Other than wishing the weekend could have lasted about 5 days longer I had a wonderful time. I managed to get a good run in on Saturday after last weeks overheating episode, but I'm not feeling to well again now. I think I'm just wearing myself a bit thin and even as I write this I'm thinking of 100 things I need to do before I leave for Fitbloggin on Thursday. I will manage, I always do, but it will be nice to have a travel free schedule for the next few weeks!

How was your weekend?

Does driving in the night/rain freak you out?
