Weekend Recap

November 20, 2017

I haven’t been great at blogging lately so I thought I’d pop in for a little weekend recap. It was definitely a busy one but we were rewarded with some warmer temperatures.


I snuck out of work a little bit early as I was meeting my painter at the new house to go over final details before they started work over the weekend. Yes, I realize I could save a pile of money by painting myself but let’s be real, I’m busy enough. Time is money and I think it will be worth it to have everything done well before moving in. While at the house, I also got to see the new flooring, which was about half done.

Once I was finished with the painter, I ran home and had a light supper before heading to the studio where I was teaching my first Pound class! I was a little nervous leading up to it, but definitely not the same stage fright feeling I’ve had before other things. We ended up selling out the event that afternoon so we had a full house of rockstars out. I think the class went well, there was great feedback and everyone seemed to have had fun. A few people were headed out on the town after their obligatory post-workout beer, but I was ready for bed.

I headed home, caught up on all the messages of support on social media while having a bowl of cereal and called it a night.


Because I’m a sucker for punishment, I set my alarm for an early morning spin class. I hadn’t been forever and was craving some cardio but haven’t been feeling running lately. Lululemon was there, gifting everyone in the class with sweat towels as a thank you for welcoming the permanent store to the community. I walked out of class practically soaking wet with sweat. Spin is the class that I love to hate. I want to puke during, especially the race tracks but feel great once it’s done.

(in love with this Under Armour Accelerate Short Sleeve!)

After a big breakfast and a shower, I headed out to see Liam at his jujitsu class. He gets to move up to the next level, so this was his last class with the younger kids. I’m pretty proud of his progress and how focused he is and I hope that the next level will help him find more focus and discipline at home as well.

Liam went back with his dad after jujitsu since I had an evening commitment. I headed home to load some boxes into the car to take to the new place. The flooring was finished and looked so freakin’ good but man am I not excited to clean the dust off every possible surface of that place.

I headed back home for a snack and to laze in bed for a bit before getting ready for an evening out. Mary and I met out for dinner at One Eleven in Capstone and toasted her belated birthday with a glass of Prosecco. From there, we headed to a Braids & Beer workshop at the Breathing Room. Yes, it sounds weird, a room full of 30-somethings braiding each other’s hair and drinking beer. Shrug. Turns out, I’m not magically able to make perfect braids in my hair, I have some practicing to do.


Another early morning. I picked Liam up (and coffee) bright and early. My parents picked us up and we hit the road to Ikea so they could help me haul some new furniture to the new place. It was a quick trip and we were back mid-afternoon. The rest of the afternoon and evening was low-key. Liam went to bed early, I caught up on Riverdale and Scandal and then crawled into bed with my book.

5 more nights of sleep and we will be in our new home!

    Love the flooring! I agree painting yourself is not worth saving the money! I can’t wait to see your new place 🙂
    The Pound class was great – even if I had no idea what I was doing lol.
    I suck at braids – huge downfall with two girls!

      white grey walls throughout. Darker grey two bedrooms with a blue feature wall for Liam and white with a green feature wall for me. Pictures to come.

    So glad that your class went well! Plan it for a Saturday and I will be there 🙂 Can’t wait to see how your place turns out. I can braid so well on myself, but find it hard on other people
