Hey guys! How was your weekend? We had another busy one over here. Not as many big outings as we have had recently, but lots of little things and the hubs had events all weekend. It kind of felt like we were just high fiving as we passed each other.
Friday night started with the usual pizza and park with friends, followed by something that doesn’t happen all that often. I went grocery shopping….ALONE. Now don’t get me wrong, I love grocery shopping with the babies, but it was pretty nice to leisurely stroll the aisles on my own and be able to read labels. Also, I didn’t forget anything, which pretty much never happens with the entourage in tow.
Saturday morning started with an Orangetheory Class, which was both good and frustrating. It was a great workout, but my heart rate monitor would not sync, so I could not track how I was doing. A definite first world, not a real problem, problem, but I was still a bit annoyed about it.
On Saturday I also had a mini reunion lunch with some of the ladies from my master’s program (it’s been 8 years since we graduated, ahhhh). We had lunch at Culinary Dropout. It was so nice to see them all and catch up on everyone’s lives. I got the butternut squash cannelloni, which was good, but I was having a little burger envy. One of the ladies ordered a burger and fries, and it looked so good. Definitely will have to try it next time.
Sunday started with a little kiddo art project. They were painting letters to go on their bedroom doors, they were so cute in their technique and application and had me cracking up the whole time.
Followed by another Orangetheory (the soreness is real now). Still wasn’t able to use my heart rate monitor, but I think the problem has been identified, so hopefully next time it I will be back on the board.
After class we decided it was too pretty outside to not be out and about and headed to the farmer’s market, which is always a favorite Sunday activity. The weather was lovely and that cupcake my dude picked out was amazing. Like that frosting is what dreams are made out of. Also, I was amazed with all the rose bushes around the farmer’s market, they were beautiful! I have tried to grow roses before and mine never got big or had more than a couple roses at a time. Gardener friends, whats the secret?
Later in the day, the kiddos and I headed to my book club, which they always enjoy, as they get to play with the other kids and sneak more cookies than I would give them. It was a great spread of goodies, mostly desserts, as well as the typical good conversation. We read The Power, which I don’t feel I can quite review yet, because I still have about a quarter of the book to read. The premise of the book is that women develop a new power, which is essentially a built in electrical force that can be used as a weapon. The story then follows how the world changes with the development of this new power in women. It was definitely a thought provoking book and I enjoyed hearing everyone’s perspectives on it.
Next month I am hosting, so I brought a few book options for the group to pick from. Thank you all for the recommendations, you guys are the best! The group ended up deciding on My Abandonment, which is based on a true story of a young girl and her father living in the Oregon wilderness. Let’s hope it’s a good one, I always get a little nervous when it’s my turn to bring some choices.
What did you do this weekend? Does it throw you off when you can’t measure your workout like you normally do? It always throws me off more than I care to admit.
Hope you have a great day!
