Happy Monday to you on this beautiful new week!
How are you all doing?
I had such a great weekend (I swear I say this every Monday….), but it was such a lovely one. I just have to share!
Just What I Wanted Weekend
We didn’t have many plans in stone (because our friends’ baby came early), so we sort of went with the flow. And that was a great idea-because it ended up being a great 3 days of just what I wanted.
On Friday morning I taught Zumba.
So so fun!
So I usually get our fruits/veggies for the week at a nearby health-food store (Sprouts), so I take my sweaty self there (yes, I am that girl), and buy our stuff. I often buy me & baby bump a treat while there.
Such a good choice this week! This was an amazing find. Like SO SO good.
I can’t stop thinking about it…..
After work on Friday I made some dinner (paninis/sandwiches) and napped until Jared got home. We ate and then headed to the temple together.
Then we got some deeeeelicious Hawaiian shaved ice. I’ve never had it before, actually, so it was a fun treat!
They were huge & deeelicious. I got lime, raspberry, and blue raspberry. And yes, I am a kid at heart.
We both crashed hard when we got home.
Saturday morning we woke up early & I drove Jared to a finance seminar he was attending & then drove myself to the gym in my BLUE & GREEN. I love being matchy matchy!
I subbed BodyPUMP & CXWORX. I love that combo, so so much! It was a fun group too.
Then I dropped off clothes/stuff we wanted to donate and then got some groceries at SAM’s.
After tackling laundry, cleanup, and the eventual baby’s room (holy smokes! Why do we have so much stuff?!?), I rewarded myself by going to the pool.
I read, drank, ate, and swam in the sunshine.
Apparently I love raspberry lemonade. I mean I knew that, obv, but I found this weekend I REALLY love it.
After a shower, I picked up Jared & we went to dinner!
I secretly love buffets —simply because I get to decide what I want, how much I want, and when I want it. But I only like them when I’m in the mood for it (and hungry) and there is a large salad bar offering. So luckily conditions were perfect and I ate my face off.
We were there for like 3 hours! We talked & ate & laughed. It was such a perfect date.
I had like 4 courses. And savored/enjoyed each one!
Sunday we went to church, napped, and just chilled.
We also ate a lovely birthday dinner with his family for a nephew’s birthday.
It was a really nice weekend of relaxation mixed with getting things done–which I think is a great balance to have. Too much of either makes me get to Monday either exhausted or feeling overwhelmed. Hah!
Cheers to a GREAT day & beginning to our weeks! <3
What kind of a weekend would YOU describe YOURS as??! Do YOU like buffet-style places to eat?? If YOU got to workout, what did YOU do for your workout this weekend?? Do YOU go to stores sweaty?!?
