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!
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!
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!
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?
