So we changed our plans. We drove out to Whole Foods in Ann Arbor to pick up some prepared foods to eat at home while we watched the Tigers game. (Well, I watched until the first rain delay and then went to sleep. The Tigers lost anyway.)

On my birthday - Sunday - I had planned to run the Big House Big Heart 10K in Ann Arbor. When I found out I couldn't run I was really thrown off. I'd been planning it for weeks! I didn't know what I wanted to do instead. I had thought about going to Avalon for a date bar but was having such a coughing fit when I woke up that I decided against it. They already don't like us at the bakery and this would be the nail in the coughin'. (hee hee) So I had my Banana Chamomile Morning Smoothie (needed the hydration anyway) and relaxed at home with the paper and some coffee. It was a really low-key day, since I'm so darn tired these days.

On Monday we got up early and drove out to Erwin Orchards in South Lyon. They have a cider mill, u-pick orchards, a corn maze, and activities for kids. It's been around for 90 years! The weather was gorgeous so it was a perfect day to just walk around and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air.
There were lots of great photo ops!
I tried to sneak in a workout...but Brian said not with my pneumonia.
Brian enjoyed his cider and donut and then we got out of there just as the school buses pulled in.
After Erwin's we went to Lush so I could buy a few bubble bars, some Toothy Tabs, and a massage bar. I'm still not feeling much better so a little pampering is definitely in order. (Thanks, Mom, for the gift certificate!)
That was my birthday weekend! I wish I'd been feeling better but all it all it was a pretty good birthday.
Hopefully I'll be healthy and running again soon. Keep your fingers crossed for me and I'll let you know as soon as I'm back out there hitting the pavement!
