I can’t believe it’s Monday already! This weekend flew by and I hope you had a great one! I got a lot of stuff done and enjoyed what was basically perfect spring weather!
Friday night Riley and I went out to a birthday dinner for his boss. The food was amazing and we had a really great time! I completely forgot to take pics, so no visuals, unfortunately. I did indulge in a fabulous filet mignon, plenty of red wine, and bread/butter, though. Saturday was pretty uneventful. I had to work for a few hours and I mostly relaxed the rest of the day afterwards. After some homemade steak Caesar salads Saturday night (with leftover steak from Friday’s dinner), Riley and I both went to bed pretty early.
Going to bed early on Saturday meant that I woke up with Riley around 6:00 on Sunday. I got into one of those moods where I wanted to do EVERYTHING in one day, so that’s what I did!
First, I got Bella into the car and we drove over to Colonial Williamsburg to enjoy the sights and walk around. Williamsburg is gloriously empty at 7 AM and the weather was absolutely perfect for an early walk!
This time of year the public gardens in CW are in bloom and it’s so fun to walk around and check out all the gorgeous flowers.
Bella got herself right into the middle of the gardens and was having an absolute blast!
After our long walk, I got changed and headed to a hot Vinyasa flow class at Studio South. It was a 90 minute class, which was the longest I’ve ever spent doing yoga in 105 degree heat. Let’s just say the class kicked my butt in an awesome way and I was completely drenched in sweat by the time it was over!
After yoga, I decided to get started on our patio/garden overhaul and got to work. After a couple hours of pulling weeds, cleaning up beds, and shopping for plants, our little garden is off to a great start!
Veggie garden before and after:
Between our little veggie garden and some pots, I planted:
- Cherry tomatoes
- Beefsteak tomatoes
- Banana peppers
I still have some room, so I’m hoping to track down some cucumber plants, jalapenos, and a couple more herbs.
I’m loving how great our back deck smells! I also got some new pillows for our deck chairs and some hanging petunias. Outdoor pillows at Target are on sale for $8 and buy-one-get-one-50% off so I got four deck pillows for $24. Score!
Coco was more than happy to help me garden.
And because I hadn’t done enough, I decided to whip up a batch of brownies too. They actually got whipped up pretty quickly cause I used a box mix from Trader Joe’s. Totally fine, because they tasted deliciously homemade 🙂
Once Riley got home it was cocktail time! He’d bought a bunch of fresh lemons, limes, and oranges and made us some citrus-y vodka tonics. I spent my early evening unwinding on the patio with my drink and a magazine. Perfect weekend activity in my opinion!
I’m a bit sore this morning, so I’ll probably take it easy in the workout department today. Now I’m off to grab some breakfast and get ready for work.
Have a great day!
