Waah! This wk/end was so fun . . . yikes - I feel like I'm coming across on this blog as a total party girl but I assure you it's only in the good sense. hehe!
If anything I think that's the one thing I really don't like about blogs - you only get to see one side of a person (you don't see the no make-up mornings, sweat it out, and feed bag slung over shoulder, covered in mud moments). All that to say - I feel like it's easy for us forget when we read blogs that the person behind is a real human, too! Anyone else feel the same?
Friday night I went to a movie w/ friends. You know that awkward moment when everyone thinks it's such a GREAT movie and you're sitting there thinking "this is --- !" and can't wait till it's over? The after party was totally awesome, though!
Gratefulness is something that I'm really trying to focus on in my life right now. It's an attitude, a perspective, that really has nothing to do with circumstances. Couple that with fantastic friends and you have the time of your life! Like 2-nite. :)
This evening was the birthday bash for my brother and sister, Bobby and Mary! No vegan cupcakes this time (ran out of time to make them) - so sad . . . next time!
Yeah - we sung our lungs out and indulged in some good laughter. We even got the guys do to the male version of "The Sister" song ( ya know, "sisters, sisters . . . there were never such devoted sisters!") Now that is some strong female influence - lol! And, as you can see from the picture - it was a blast!
This? I think this is nearly a record for me. I was SO happy about this apple . . . my 1st one in almost a week! Do you ever do challenges just to prove to yourself you can do it - even if it's totally strange? The dark chocolate covered plums in the background were perfect on the side for an afternoon snack. :)
Crunchy veggie tray in attempt to balance out all the sugar!!! :p Don't think it quite worked - the brownies were out of this world.
Workout this morning was squats, lunges, overhead presses, plank for core (!), and just over a 1.5 mile run. Felt great! Housework (love that feeling of everything clean!), a bit of catch up work from the week, fun w/ YouTube stretching videos this afternoon and birthday bash this evening! Ooh - and thank you Ms. Gwen for the surprise visit and freshly baked cookies! There's nothing quite like a touch of homemade sweetness in a basket, right? :)
So, that's it in a nutshell guys! It's almost 1am and church is in the morning so I'd better hit the sack so I can be fresh for an incredible start to the new week! Blessings to each and everyone of you!!! What are you are up to this weekend?
