While most people (in the US) are looking forward to their 3 day weekend, I (who usually has a 3 day weekend) had a puny 1 1/2 day weekend. Not to worry, I packed a lot in! After Saturday’s kids yoga class, I met my besties for some bridesmaid dress shopping, lunch, and All Chocolate Kitchen. Yum! When I got home, I hit the books preparing for this morning’s study session.
I went to bed nice and early (thanks to my NyQuil induced haze) and awoke this morning groggy and ready to turn off my alarm. But since I was meeting a friend at the 8am yoga class, I powered through. And I was happy that I did! Because the class was amazing (although my balance was a bit off with the stuffed up head and all) and because I got to catch up with my friend! My nose didn’t slow me down too much and by 11am, I was parked at Potbelly feeding my post yoga hunger with a tasty toasted sandwich.
I met my study buddy to discuss how not prepared we are for our test 8 weeks away. When she left, I stayed to continue working until the place became overrun with Sunday soccer kids. Not ready to be completely finished, I walked a few doors down to Starbucks where I found a seat in the sunshine and downed refillable green tea while making my way through a long and tedious chapter.
I finally gave up just before 3 heading out into the last of the sunshine. I made two stops on my way home, Whole Foods and Mariano’s, for food for the week. Since I’m working tomorrow, I had to battle the Sunday crowds which was slightly annoying and even worse because my nose started to run. When I came home, I was exhausted and the sweet BOY helped me unpack all of the food. I watched the end of the IU game with him and then we made dinner.
Due to lack of energy and creativity, I kept this week’s meal plan SUPER simple! I picked up a lot of easy to make meats and veggies and thawed out some chili from the freezer for lunch. I grabbed some cold pressed juice to help me battle my cold and healthy snacks. I certainly didn’t meet my goal of cooking each week, but I am hoping to have more time next weekend to try some of the new recipes I’ve been pinning. Looks like I’ll have a sous chef!
I have a packed 4 days of work followed by a Friday continuing ed class but then a full 3 day weekend to recuperate!

Was it long or short?
