Hey friends, how are you today? Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Our weekend started with the usual pizza and park time, which we always look forward to. Afterward, the hubs headed out to his fantasy baseball draft, while I fell asleep putting babies to bed, lol. I actually fell asleep while putting my little guy to bed (somewhere between 7:30-8:00). The hubs woke me up to come to bed when he got home, and other than that 2-3 minutes it took to get in my bed, I was asleep for a glorious 9.5 hours. You would think after going to bed so early I’d be ready to pop up and go workout, but no, I decided to embrace rest and baby snuggles. It was a gloriously restful morning with my little family. I think I needed the rest and am glad that I took the opportunity to get some extra sleep.
After some morning lounging, we went and bought all the groceries at TJs (seriously, I can’t stop myself from impulse buying at least 2-3 things every time I go there.
After teaching my class and hanging at home a bit, I was off to enjoy a date with my momma. We went to see The King and I, which was visiting as part of a touring production. I had actually never seen The King and I (the movie) and didn’t know what it was about. It was SO good! I love it. It was also wonderful to spend a little time with my mom hanging out and catching up.
The rest of the evening was spent hanging out with the family, celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with vegan Shepard’s Pie, sautéed cabbage, and Irish soda bread. The hubs and I also watched Hidden Figures, which was nice. It had been a while since we had hung out and watched a movie.
Sunday morning started with an Orangetheory Class. Not only was it a great workout, but it was also their two-year anniversary party, which was fun. They had food, local vendors visiting and giveaways. I ended up winning a shirt and towel and also got to enjoy some snacks after class. Sadly I had no bites of that mini bundt cake, I took it home to the babies, who were more than happy to polish it off.
The rest of the morning and early afternoon was spent hanging out, meal prepping and trying to pick up. I had my book club that afternoon (I managed to read the book!). I made this lightened up spinach artichoke dip to share, recipe coming soon. The book we read was The Silent Sister by Diane Chamberlain, which I have mixed feelings on. I enjoyed it while I was reading it, but the more I thought about it after, the less I liked the characters and I felt like it wasn’t as well-developed as it could have been. The group consensus was that it would be a good beach read.
The kiddos and the hubs joined me for book club as well. The kids had a great time playing with the other kids there and the hubs was a rock star keeping an eye on them. The rest of the evening was spent getting ready for the week and crying over our broken brackets. So many upsets!
How was your weekend? Read any good books recently? If you did a bracket how’s it doing?
Hope you have a great day!
