Weekend Recap 5.12.14

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I spent a lot of time over at my parents, with my mom.  It was a great weekend, that naturally ended too soon!

Saturday I was up super early for Weight Watchers, and had a GREAT weigh in.. what an awesome way to start the weekend!  Then my mom and I had some breakfast, did a little plant shopping, and walked to the gym to workout.  When we got home I helped her vacuum the pool (that was still much too cold to swim in) and we laid by it for a little enjoying the nice weather. It was in the 80’s and sunny.. let me tell you this Chicagoian has been waiting for months for 80 degree weather.. and the SUN!!   I headed home around 5 and spent some time organizing the house a bit while G cooked some awesome chicken kabobs!  After dinner we got a sweet treat, and took a drive.   Totally laid back, and casual. It was a great way to spend a a Saturday.

Then Sunday, Mothers Day I headed back over to my parents.  I delivered my mom’s gifts (some LUSH bath products, and a nice display of Orchids for her kitchen) they were a big hit!  My dad and brother were at work, so I breakfast for my mom and my sister who was from Madison to visit for the day.  Then we hung out, went for a walk, and basically just spent time together. I was probably a little lamer than usual, because I was feeling a little under the weather.  I think (fingers crossed) it’s allergies, but I just so lethargic kind of a bummer.  After my dad and brother got home, we had an awesome dinner that everyone helped to make and of course some dessert.  Ah, I ate so bad I was feeling a little guilty (and totally gross) as I drove home.  When I got home I started packing for the cruise, and doing some laundry.  It made me so happy to go to bed last night with our windows open, and a  nice breeze! I think this week is the first week we’ve been able to sleep with the windows open… finally!

This is going to be a big week for me as well.. I have LOTS to do before I leave for my cruise with Logan on Friday!  My list includes packing, typing up loose ends at work, some calls for my volunteer role, and naturally blogging!  I have so many things I want to write about.  This week, I’m planning to share my comparison of the Jawbone UP24 and Fitbit Flex, I also want to share about my weight loss journey, and do another bridesmaid look of the day post.  I also have an exciting collaboration with one of my sorority sisters to share, so my plan is to have all the posts (and hopefully a few other smaller ones) live before I leave.  I’m also going to try and schedule a few other posts for while I’m out of town!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend, I have a feeling this is going to be another GREAT week!!
