Oh, hey there! Sorry I missed you on Friday… I had great intentions to put up a post and well, you know how these things can get!
I feel like there’s a lot to catch up on! I’ll try to skim through the highlights, but let’s just roll through it, shall we? Get ready for a lot of pictures!
Actually, let’s not talk about Friday. Friday kicked my butt and is the reason you didn’t hear from me all day, so we’ll just fast-forward to Saturday!
I worked Saturday morning at an event on campus, then booked it up to Richmond for a baby shower for my good friend and sorority sister, JaneBerry.
JaneBerry is expecting in February and I’m so thrilled for her! We’ve been good friends for years and she has one of the best personalities and biggest hearts of anyone I know. She’s also fun to goof around with and always makes me laugh hysterically!
Her baby shower was also a great reunion with some of my other favorite sorority sisters.
I was SO happy to see one of my other best friends from college, Molly, who blogs over at Still Being Molly. She just recently had her own little one and I was so excited she came up from NC for the shower!
Molly looked amazing (and also has a much better camera than me so I stole some photos!). Her little girl, Lilly, was a total star at the shower. Can’t get over her little facial expressions!
My best friend, Megan, also came down from D.C. to join us as well as a few other sisters. It was amazing to see so many of my favorite girls in one place, especially after basically being a social recluse for 6 weeks!
The shower was gorgeously decorated with a cute elephant theme. The food hit the spot and I definitely went back for seconds of the mini sandwiches. I’m a sucker for anything served in a mini croissant!
Once I got home, Riley was already prepping dinner for us. He made steaks, homemade onion rings and a big salad.
I’m constantly grateful to have a husband who cooks! It was nice to just put my feet up and relax after a long day.
Riley and I stayed up late Saturday night drinking wine and hanging out at home, so it felt good to turn the clocks back an hour Sunday morning (thanks daylight savings!). We decided to skip the normal breakfast extravaganza at home and go out for breakfast instead.
A local restaurant called Food For Thought was serving breakfast, so we headed over there. I started my meal off with a freshly squeezed glass of juice that contained juice of beets, carrots, and apple.
For my breakfast I chose scrambled eggs, home fries, turkey bacon, and multi-grain toast.
Everything was so good! Riley shook his head at me because, per usual, I ate every last bit of the toast. I only got halfway through the rest of the food before getting full, however. Typical bread hog!
The rest of Sunday was spent at home. I got caught up on a lot of cleaning, made some homemade pumpkin bread, and had an impromptu visit from my sister, Casey, and my niece, Annabelle. It was so great to see them, even if only for a couple of hours!
Well, I think that gets us all caught up! Today starts another 6 day work week, but I’m hoping to take a better approach this week than last. In case you weren’t paying attention, I worked out a grand total of 3 days last week. THREE. My eating habits also took a bit of a beating and I ate lunch out almost every day last week, so I’m hoping to make some good changes starting today.
This morning I got up at 4:30 and headed over to the gym right at opening time. I ran on the treadmill for 25 minutes while watching the morning news.
After my run, I grabbed a medicine ball and completed a 15 minute ab workout from the Nike Training Club app.
My goal is to get back on track this week after last week’s indulgence. I’ll get into my plan a little bit more tomorrow so for now, have a great Monday!!
What was the highlight of your weekend?
How often do you get to see your old friends?
