Very nice. And that pizza looks incredible.

kristen said...

Very jealous of your outdoor space. I'd definitely live out there in the summer if I has that! Yaay for your outdoor abode!

Courtney @ I CAN DO THIS said...

Sounds like a perfect weekend, my dear! Just a wee bit jealous :)

Jason said...

Normally I would comment on the food, but I am going to comment on you doing the yard.

You want to come to the Country of Texas and help me out? I will cook for you in return!!!!!

MCM Mama said...

Lovely deck! Sounds like a nice weekend.

Char said...

All Saturday runs should finish at a Farmer's Market or at a cafe.

The deck looks great! I think you'll be spending lots of time there this Summer.

Lesley @ racingitoff.com said...

Love that you ran to the market!!!

And that deck looks awesome!!! Perfect place to relax post-run, I think.

Stacie said...

Love the new shoes!!! Saturday Markets are great. I was super excited when we got a chain saw a few years ago. Let's just say I have put more hours on it than my husband :)

Sarah said...

We grilled pizza this weekend too! Is there any secret to getting it nice and round? Ours was more of a ovally rectangle... :-/

lindsay said...

soo... why do you need the weed whacker? it looks like you built a deck over your lawn. should've just extended it a little further to the fence ;) looks great though, all joking aside.

ummm and your sandwich idea is so awesome. why didn't i think of this? so simple and yet still a sandwich. i am stuck in a box thinking sandwiches have to have coldcuts and well, i do not eat meat after watching "earthlings"

Jill said...

I pretty much run all the time in the Kinvaras anymore (and the Peregrine which is the trail shoe cousin of the Kinvara) - glad to see you've headed to a lighter shoe :).

Looks like the PERFECT weekend - yay :).

Richelle said...

I love your new deck! Looks like the PERFECT place for summertime meals, relaxing and blogging!

I'll have to get some recipes from you, although most of what you posted was pretty self-explanatory. Everything looks so delicious!

Lauren @ The Running Cook said...

Looks like my kind of weekend! I'm jealous of your deck...I'd be out there all the time!

Johann said...

I love all of it! New kicks, new deck, new toy...perfect!

J said...

Your new deck and furniture look great! I love the new shoes too! I need to go shopping for a pair for me - mine are getting up there in miles!

Laura said...

Denise said...

the deck looks great!!! we redid our paver patio last year. so nice having an outdoor space.

Amber (Girl with the red hair) said...

Your deck is AMAZING. We have a really small deck right now with room for a bbq OR patio furniture, not both. We're hoping to rebuild next summer so we can actually have a space to hang out and eat outside!

Wifey said...

LOVING the deck! FABULOUS! And, that pizza looks yummy! Um, the recipe, please!

Winks & Smiles,
