Hey friends, how was your weekend? We had a great one over here. Before we get into my weekend recap though, I wanted to send my well wishes to everyone impacted by Hurricane/Tropical Storm Harvey. My thoughts are with you all!
Now for the weekend, Friday evening started with our fantasy football draft. I took the babies to my moms for the evening and the hubs and I headed out to meet our draft group at a local restaurant. I did zero research to get ready for the draft, but I think I did okay. It was great to catch up with some old friends and enjoy a rare evening out. I love doing the draft because it keeps me connected with some friends over the football season. Also, it keeps me a bit more invested in actually watching football, which I am only semi invested in otherwise.
Saturday morning started early with an Orangetheory class. I didn’t have high expectations for my performance. With the babies and I being sick last week, it was my first class in a week and a half, so I was pretty excited when I achieved a personal best number of splat points.
After Orangetheory I ate breakfast before teaching my class. We then ran a few family errands before nap time. In the afternoon we had some family coming in to visit for the weekend. My grandmother and father got in around the time the babies got up from their naps, so we headed over to meet them as soon as the kiddos were up. I was greeted by a homemade tortilla (grandma food is the best food).
We enjoyed a nice, lazy Saturday afternoon visiting and playing with the kids. The hubs then took the little lady home to bed (she doesn’t sleep great away from home), but the little guy and I had a slumber party with grandparents. The next morning we were up bright and early, and I got to enjoy this beautiful sunrise with my coffee.
We also had some visitors come right up to the door (there were two of them). I was surprised that they would come so close. They spent a few minutes checking things out before continuing on their way.
After getting up and around, the rest of the family rejoined us to hang out and have breakfast. After breakfast, our visiting family headed back to Phoenix and I was off to book club. Our book club book was The Handmaid’s Tale, which I had read before, but not recently, so I was not totally up on all the details. It was a lovely time catching up and digging into this delicious Nutella and strawberry crepe.
The rest of Sunday was spent on the usual chores: grocery shopping, laundry, etc. We set up the kid’s water table on the back porch, so we had a nice time watching them splash about. I got a new yoga block and jump rope this weekend, so I had to play with those a bit as well. My old jump rope broke about a year ago and I had not replaced it until now. I had forgotten what a great workout jumping rope is!
We ended the evening with the season finale of Game of Thrones. I cannot believe the season is already over!
How was your weekend? Any fun adventures? Any show suggestions for me now that Game of Thrones is over? I will need something to fill that Sunday night void.
