A Rest Day!

Dean pointed out that I did 2 Yogalates classes & a run in a span of 24 hours. I need a rest day! Which is what today is. No morning run, no afternoon class. I'm just going straight home after work & I'm VERY happy! As good as I feel after I workout it's still nice to do nothing sometimes.

In my last post I mentioned that we had house guests this weekend. Our friend Katie, who lives in Houston, came to town for a friends shower. We were excited to see her but we were even more excited to get to meet her baby Quinn! She's 4 months old & just too cute.
This was Quinn's reaction when "Hey Fighting Tigers" was on the radio. She looks pretty happy! Katie is an LSU alum but Quinn's daddy is a Notre Dame alum & he'd called after they actually won a football game & sang the alma mater to her. This was the result of that phone call.
Isn't she so cute? She loves sucking on her fingers & thumb. It's really adorable. Quinn still sleeps a lot so that left a lot of time for visiting with Katie. Dean grilled steaks & we sat around drinking wine & catching up. Sunday morning when Dean & I got back from Mass we watched Quinn while Katie went. She slept the whole time so that was easy. She's very happy when she wakes up.
Here's Dean & Quinn. She has her daddy's skin which if you can't tell is the typical fair Irish type!
Between the lighting & the iPhone the pics aren't very good but my phone was always handy. Dean cooked crab cakes for lunch & OMG they were sooooo good!!!! Like, just as good if not better, than any restaurant. Katie & Quinn left Sunday afternoon to visit in New Orleans. We were sad to see them go but were very happy we got to spend some time with them.
