Good afternoon bloggies! Happy Monday (as happy as you can get for a Monday anyways!) I’m so sorry for being MIA. So, settle in for a long (probably TOO long!) update on my weigh in and my weekend!
Well, you all know that Fridays are my weigh in days. I had
Eat a yummy donut – why not!? I had already weighed in that morning… I could work off that donut within the next week… right? Guess what I did… this is unheard of… well, for me at least considering I love donuts and chocolate and all things sweet – not to mention I was totally PMSing. I ate THIS:
Veggies and dip! How cool is that!? I was so proud of myself for making a nice, healthy decision. Especially since Adam and I have date night on Friday and I can anticipate eating more than normal. I decided to just munch on my veggies. They were good too, so no complaints – take that DONUT!
Started the day off with a lovely sweat session at BodyPump – MAN! I LOVE BODYPUMP!!! And one of my favorite instructors, Geena helped me a bunch on some moves that I was having difficulty with regarding my form… she’s great. I will SO miss her if I ever move and don’t go to that Y anymore. On Saturday afternoon, I had plans to meet my friends Sheena (hi love!) and Megan at noon at Ikea and the Mall of America for some shopping and lunch. So, I leave my house around 11:30am – it’s not that far. I didn’t get to Ikea until 12:45pm!!!!!! I was so crabby. Little did I know, part of the freeway that I take to get there was closed. Completely closed. I was sitting in traffic, not moving, getting crabbier by the second! It really sucked. Since my friends are wonderful, they just sat and chatted until I got there so we could shop together. They’re sweet. So, I get to Ikea and I find a few things I like, one being these lamps:
OMG – it was DELISH! Another friend, Amber, met up with us for lunch. The food was great, however, we were starving after our Ikea shopping experience, so stupidly, we chowed down on chips and salsa and when our meal finally got to us, we weren’t even that hungry. Megan and I got these burritos, holy sh*t! Those things were the size of my head!!! I took home at least half of it. It was a monster. And so good. And of course, I didn’t take a picture… damn.
The game was fun. It was Adam, Me, Megan, Sheena, Amber and Steph. It was good to have some of the girls from college back together again… oh, plus Adam.
Yesterday was pretty quiet for the most part. Woke up around 10am and went for a walk with Lisa (a good neighbor friend) around the neighborhood with her dogs for about a half hour. She wanted to show me some houses that were for sale. A couple of them were nice… but within WALKING DISTANCE from the parents house… maybe a little too close. I love my family, but what’s the point in moving (and PAYING) when I could just stay pretty much where I’m at. I’ll hold out on my Shakopee townhouse that I love so much…
At 2pm, me and my sisters and my mom headed over to my aunts house for my cousins Bridal Shower. My cousin Jenny is hilarious. She is so witty and funny. We had a pretty good time. I have determined though, when I get married, no little children at the Bridal shower… it was stressful because the little flower girl insisted on helping Jen open her gifts… which is fine. But there were multiple times when she dropped thing and tripped over things… and her mother didn’t really say much… stressed me out because it’s not “your place” to say something, but it was just very distracting and nerve wracking, no one wants their gift getting broken because a kid drops it. I love kids, I realize I sound like a bia… but whatever!!
After the shower, my older sister, Jessica and I headed to Kohls. I needed new flip flops. I ended up with 2 pair of flip flops and 3 pairs of heels. I have a problem. Seriously though, I got 5 pairs of shoes for only $52!!! The pair I’m wearing today were only $5.49!!! You cannot beat that! I’ve already gotten a couple of compliments on them….:
Super cute. (sorry for the weird pic, I wanted you to see the side too!
After shopping, my sister headed over to my OTHER cousins house to get her hair done (Kayla is in cosmetology school) and I headed home to eat dinner before I headed over to Kayla’s to have her do MY hair! The verdict: it’s light. Lighter than I wanted and a little chunkier than I wanted too… but it’s growing on me. She said if I’m not happy with it, we can meet up on Wednesday (she’s out of town until then) to fix it up. We’ll see what I decide. What do you think about it:
(I look slightly challenged… Haha!)
I think it’s cute. It’s not BAD, by any means… it’s just not what I was expecting. I’ve gotten plenty of compliments on my hair today… so it must look okay!
Anyways my friends, that’s about all I have for now. Sorry for the REALLY LONG post – no more skipping blogging – it makes for a really long “catch up” post.
I hope you all have a wonderful Monday! I’ll be back tomorrow!
