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!!
