Happy Tuesday Everyone!
Our holiday weekend was perfect and I am so thankful to all the men & women who have scarified to make that happen. THANK YOU!!!!!
This weekend was busy but also nice and relaxing (which was VERY much needed). D worked on Friday then decided since we had a wedding and lots to do around the house he would take Saturday as well- queue happy dance! We were going to have THREE DAYS together!!! I know this doesn’t seem like that big of a deal to some this is a rarity for us.
Friday D worked and I met up with two sorority sisters, Courtney & Laura for dinner and drinks! We went to an amazing restaurant called H&G Supply can I just say holy freakin’ yum! If this place wasn’t like a hour from my house I would eat there weekly- it is a Paleo themed that offers fresh, good food.
I have become quite the food snob and honestly the cheap stuff just doesn’t do it for me anymore! I ordered the 80/20 burger with a side of fries. I am craving another one right now just thinking about the bacon spread- yep no mayo just bacon paste?! <—– it sounds weird to but it was the best thing I have tasted in awhile.
Saturday morning when D got home he asked me on a breakfast date! We are totally keeping the romance alive in this marriage yall This is something we used to do when we didn’t get a lot of time together back when we first started dating so it really was fun. After breakfast we made our weekly trip to The Home Depot- I am pretty sure we single handily keep them in business. We got a few more containers for my herbs (the are getting so big!) and then a pot for our lemon bush.
D decided that being up for like 20 hours was enough and finally went to bed which gave me the opportunity to hit up the gym and do a leg workout from Bobbi’s Summer Shred (you have 2 days to sign up!). It was a killer just like all her workouts- however this one looked deceptively easy but I was burning by the end.
After D woke up we decided that since it was a holiday we needed adult beverages to celebrate with- to the new liquor store we went! I guess the county we live in is finally not ‘dry’ anymore cause the booze stores are popping up EVERYWHERE. We went to Total Wine which was ginormous and really cool. Neither of us are big drinkers but tend to like to have a glass of wine or a beer occasionally.
This place was insane they had so much selection and we might have gone a little crazy in the mix and match section. You can build your own six-pack which leads to wanting “just 1 to try” of basically everything. Finally D cut me off when I filled my second container- I think this will be my new spot for beer & cider. The store also had a great selection of wine- I got two bottles based on recommendations from the very knowledgeable staff.
The names of different beer & wine are hilarious to me! I know its just a marketing thing and I didn’t buy any of these but I was laughing reading all the different ones.
We decided to be adults and not speed all our money on a booze fest after about an hour! We headed home to plant our newest herb additions and played around in the garden for a bit. Neither of us wanted to cook so we ordered a pizza and caught up on the DVR.
Sunday I was supposed to do my “long” run of 3.5 miles however my legs were killin’ when I got up after my leg day the day before <—- no I was not paying attention to my training plan! So off to yoga I went- saving the run for Monday! I tried the “Earth” class which is a power flow yoga vs the hot yoga. It was definitely different and I was a little sore from my hard leg day so if felt great to move but my poses were a little shaky since my muscles were so tired!
After a quick shower we headed off to a friends wedding! The ceremony was beautiful and I am so happy for my friend and her new hubby!
Wedding festivities complete we got a nice little thunderstorm which led us to a 3 hour nap. D was so off on his schedule I am not sure he really even slept that day! I was a zombie all weekend- basically anytime I sat down in a comfortable spot I was asleep in minutes. I even fell asleep in yoga during our 5 minute pre-class relaxation time.
Sunday evening we grilled fajitas and enjoyed a few of our purchases while watching Ride Along and Anchorman 2. Ride Along was funny and Anchorman was boring to me I guess because I fell asleep – D said it was stupid but not awful like we had heard!
Monday was raining and dark so I slept until 7:30 (who am I?) I got and headed out for a nice 3.5 mile run in the semi- rain! It turned out to be a wonderful run and felt heavenly in the misty rain. I came home nice and sweaty my legs feeling so much better.
We decided to go see the new X-Men movie Days of Future Past and it was AMAZING! I should have done better but I was so hungry after my run I don’t think I let D have very much popcorn. I did a quick weekly meal plan then we headed to the grocery store for our weekly grab. D found steaks on sale which determined what we would have for dinner with Caprese Salad, baked potatoes and stir fried okra.
The weekend was busy but also relaxing- I think I could have done about 3 more days at the house. I did get to finish laundry last night
Hope you had an amazing weekend!
