The Weekend In Pictures!

This weekend was spent mostly on my own! I used it as a weekend of recovery, plenty of sleep, and delicious foods!

On Saturday I attended the Wanderlust festival in town. The first part was a 5k run!
I arrived a bit early to set up my yoga mat and check in so I stopped and got some body art too!
The event was held near downtown so it was neat to see the sun rise behind all the buildings!
After the run, I changed for yoga and meditation!
I was starved from all the activity that morning so I stopped by for lunch! A friend introduced me to this place and I’m obsessed!
I got a small Poke bowl but it was SOOOOO GOOD!
I went for my Sunday morning walk with Snowflake since Jordan was still out of town and would be returning that evening.
My mom wanted to buy me some groceries and made me get my own cart. So much food!
Meal prep Sunday was successful with these delicious salads for the week!
I watched football while I waited for Jordan to get home. Our Chiefs didn’t do so good this week. 🙁

This weekend was such a blast! Sometimes, I think it’s great to get a weekend to relax and just have some alone time.

How did you spend your weekend?

The Weekend In Pictures!

Coming in a little later than normal this week! I had a busy weekend but it was full of so much fun. Jordan is out of town this week so I had to soak up the whole weekend with him. I figured I would share a sentence per picture to share what we did!

We started off Saturday morning with our usual run/bike.
Nothing like a delicious breakfast and coffee post run!
I picked these up at Target and I love drinking them throughout the day. Grabbed this one before Halloween shopping.
Before we left the house I put these chicken tenders in the crockpot for lunch!
We decorated our yard Saturday afternoon!
We had a concert on Sunday but we still cheered for the Chiefs!
Quick meal prep after church!
Jordan and I on the way to the Andy Mineo concert Sunday night.
While in line outside the venue, I bought a popsicle to eat while we waited.
I stood in the back during Social Club Misfits.
Made my way up front for Andy Mineo and Wordsplayed!

 

Well, that’s my weekend in pictures! I have another eventful weekend coming up too so I’ll make sure to take plenty of pictures.

How was your weekend?!

The Weekend With Friends!

Oh what a weekend it was! The week went by sort of quickly since I had Tuesday off for the holiday. I was definitely confused every day though!

Saturday

My pre-gym coffee was definitely needed Saturday morning!
I hit up the gym for an extra workout this week since they were having an event called Muscles and Mimosas! My friend Alyssa was coming to try out my F3 Crosstraining for the first time and I was very excited. We met through Tone It Up so our love language is basically working out together!

This past week has been Active Recovery Week at the gym so I was glad Alyssa was visiting when the workout wasn’t too intense. I wanted her to come back! 

The Muscles and Mimosas Crew!
All smiles with Alyssa!

It was definitely nice to relax and chat after our workout. Alyssa also got to learn one of the fundamental lifts so it was really neat seeing her learn.

I’m definitely the mom of the group and I will be there to cheer you on during everything. If you ever need some cheering up, I’m your girl, haha!

Once I got home, I whipped up a thin crust pizza and Jordan and I devoured it while watching Night at the Museum. We recently cleaned our entertainment system and reorganized our movies so Jordan wants to re-watch a bunch of movies. 

After movies, we played board games. We kept hearing thunder and didn’t know if we would get caught in the rain so we just stayed inside. It was kind of nice to just relax and have one on one time with no technology.

Even though it can be a lot of work, I like to cook when I’m home. I felt pretty guilty last weekend when every meal was delivery or take out of some sort. I kind of cheated and bought the meat precooked but Jordan was obsessed with the pulled pork sliders I put together. It was easy and delicious!

Sunday

We woke up early enough for a nice walk at the park! So there’s a big pond at the park with so many ducks. However, there’s only four geese in the entire park. This week, we noticed that one goose is hidden behind a tree and hasn’t moved. On Sunday, it was still there! The other geese are always near by and get defensive when people walk too close. I think the geese is sitting on some eggs! We visit the park multiple times a week so we will keep an eye on her!

Picture this, I’m fully dressed and ready for church and I call the dog inside to be put up. She stays locked in the bedroom when we are not home. I called her from the back door and she would not come in. She looked at me and bolted. I wasn’t in the mood but I took off outside after her to try to corral her inside. However, instead of her usual run around once and then run inside, I see her running toward the corner of our yard over and over again.

I notice there’s birds dive bombing us too. Finally, I stopped chasing Snowflake and I walked toward the birds. A baby bird had fallen out of its nest! It had feathers and looked okay so Jordan and I opted to leave it alone. We finally caught Snowflake and ushered her inside. By the time we got back home from church, the family was gone so the little fly grew away!

I had to include this because I thought it was funny. My mom used to carry a big purse and she would have stash everything in it. She would sneak water bottles in places by shoving them in her purse. On Sunday I realised that I’m slowly becoming my mother because I did just that by shoving my drink in my purse to take it to church. Jordan gave me the side eye but I pretended not to see, haha!

After church, Jordan and I decided to go to the Heights for lunch. We ate at Tacos A Go Go and then took a short walk to Juiceland. I’ve been taking Jordan to a few of my favorite juice and smoothie places around town and this has become one of his favorites! I tried a Wheatgrass shot and followed it up with a juice called the Ninja Bachelor Party. It was a bunch of green so I felt that it made up for my indulgence. That’s how it works, right? 

The rest of the day was spent doing the usual Sunday chores of laundry, dishes, and meal prep. I’m ready for a full week ahead!

How was your weekend?

The Productive Weekend Of The Summer!

Well, as most of my friends have an awesome four day weekend, I’m sulking in the corner because I DON’T! We have Tuesday off but we have to work Monday. How silly. Anyways! I’m happy either way because our weekend was productive and we FINALLY checked off a bunch of stuff off our to-do list around the house.

I tried to run but was too sore. We settled for a quick walk!

Saturday

Throughout the week, I heard about this amazing place in town offering Cryotherapy. I know there’s plenty of businesses in Houston that offer this service but a friend visited this specific location and had an awesome experience. Plus, they offered compression therapy with the Normatec boots! I’ve seen professional runners swear by these and I was super excited to have found a place where you could walk in and get the therapy without needed to have a referral or go through a physical therapist.

Jordan walks a lot at work and he has been complaining of stiffness in his calves and shins so I dragged him along. We chose to do the Compression Therapy and the Cryotherapy! I’ll have a full post up on this on Wednesday but it was such a blast. I really like trying out new things with Jordan and even though he was nervous at first, he really enjoyed it. He wants to go back soon!

Jordan LOVED cryotherapy!

After our session at The Athletic Room, we drove down the road to try a juice and smoothie place. I had seen this place as it was being built and I was curious to try it. Jordan normally doesn’t go for places like this but he was willing to try a smoothie that was mostly fruit, haha! You have to have ninja skills to get him to eat his greens sometimes!

We made a quick pit stop on the way home at Lowe’s to pick up some materials for our yard work. Our backyard is looking better each time we work on it but it seems like it’s never ending. Well, especially when you have a certain way you want it to look! Since we got home around 1 in the afternoon after all our adventures, we decided to relax a bit and wait for the sun to go down before starting the yard work.

It took us about two hours to tackle the back yard. My husband mowed while I moved my mom’s plant into a new planter. I have no idea what it is but we think it’s a shrub of some sort. I literally cannot grow anything but tomatoes so I’m hoping this little stick lasts a while! My job was ripping the vines off our back fence. The previous owner just let it grow wild and the tree trimmers only took off so much. It was a combination of hacking and pulling but I got most of it off. Unfortunately, I found out that it’s coming from our neighbor’s yard so I can’t dose it with fire and burn it to the ground. Kidding! It was very frustrating to say the least!

Sunday

For some strange reason my phone reset itself overnight so my alarm did not go off when I needed it to. Jordan and I went for a quick walk around the park but I wasn’t feeling too hot. After breakfast, we stayed home and worked around the house. Jordan cleaned the closet out and his mancave. While I worked on my blog and my computer. It was nice to finally take some time to get some work done. I had been putting it off way too long.

Jordan and I went out for lunch. We stopped at Lowe’s yet again for some more supplies. We were taking advantage of all the sunlight we had. Especially since the rain lately has been spontaneous.

What’s a Sunday afternoon without a nap? Jordan was sweet enough to let me nap for a glorious two hours. I’ve been so tired lately and I don’t understand. I’ll have to keep an eye on it because being tired all the time isn’t fun, y’all!

The second session of yard work was for the front yard. We have a big magnolia tree up front so we try to make our yard look put together. We’re the only house in the neighborhood that does their own yard work so the pressure is on!

We finished the evening with pizza and movie time. It was busy but fun! I love weekends like this. I’m ready to enjoy myself this week. 

What are your plans for the week?

Movie Weekend and June Goals!

I can’t believe it’s already June! The humidity has hit Houston at full speed so I guess I should get used to frizzy hair and practice my ponytails again.

This weekend was a low key type of weekend. I had a list of things I wanted to get done this weekend but other than that, we just relaxed. Since the past few days we’ve been plagued with storms here in Houston, Jordan and I opted to pick up some movies at RedBox! There were so many movies we needed to catch up on we picked up a few and sprinkled them throughout our weekend. Continue reading Movie Weekend and June Goals!
