We Were On A Break!!!

Hello Blog World!!! I feel like it has been forever! Oh wait, that's because it has been, ha! I don't know what it was, but I just needed a break from blogging. I can't really explain why. I just needed it. 

But I think it is time for my break to be over and get back into the swing of things. I find myself missing it more and more each day, so I think that is a great sign that I need to get back to it. 

I feel like so much has happened since I took my hiatus. So much that I wouldn't even know where to begin to catch everyone up. Instead of trying to remember everything and anything that I wanted to tell you guys, I am just going to dive back in and start with a weekend recap. 

This was the first weekend in a long time that I didn't really have any plans. I took Friday off from work. I started my day by meeting up with my personal trainer and we climbed the Manitou Incline. It was the first time I have done this in two years and I was a little nervous because it took me forever last time and I got pretty sick about half way up. This time however was a lot different! We made it up in just under an hour and I didn't get sick. I am pretty damn proud of this accomplishment. I can't wait to start doing it more often. 

After conquering the beast that is the Incline, I headed to my Dad's work to get my passenger side mirror fixed on my car. Why it is broken is a post for another day. After that I headed to the mall to kill some time. I ended up going and getting some food from one of my favorite places. PB & Jellies. They have delicious Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches. Yum! And I dropped my ring off to get sized and also purchased a few new Maxi dresses. It was a good trip.

I had an eye appointment to get contacts Friday afternoon. That was definitely interesting. I have only been wearing glasses for two and a half years and have never worn contacts, but I have gotten to the point lately that I can't stand my glasses. So I went in and they showed me how to put them in and take them out. That was a whole lotta fun! 

After I left the eye doctors I had a few hours before I had to meet back up with my trainer for our regularly scheduled session, so I went home and just chilled for a bit. Once it was time I headed out for my session. Even though I was already pretty tired from doing the Incline earlier in the day, it felt great to lift. My trainer pushed me til I felt like I was going to die, but that's the norm. 

After I left there I headed to my Brothers so that I could babysit my Nieces and my Nephew for the rest of the night. It was a pretty uneventful night. We watched some TV, had some dinner. Nothing too extravagant. 

Saturday I woke up and sent the Husband on his way for the weekend (Hello! House to myself for the weekend!). He headed up to Denver for the weekend with a friend and to visit his parents. I got myself ready, had some breakfast and then went to Zumba. After class I ran to the bank and did some grocery shopping and then headed home where I proceeded to be lazy the rest of the day. I spent some time laying out on our back porch where I got an awesome sun burn on my stomach and back. Yay me! I took a nap, I watched some TV and made some dinner. It was a great day of relaxing. 

Enjoying the sun!
Sunday was much of the same. I picked up around the house. I made these delicious Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins from the the Skinnytaste Website. OMG! They are scrumptious! I watched some TV, I took the dog for a walk and then dropped him off at home and went on a run. He makes running too difficult. He likes to trip me, it isn't pretty. I made dinner and then waited for the Husband to get home. It was a very relaxing day. 

This weekend was just what I needed. I haven't had a weekend to just relax in a long time. And it felt great. But I think it will be my last relaxing one for a while. Summer is starting to pick up and we have so many things planned already. I can't wait to tell you guys more about them. Hope you have a great Monday everyone!

  1. Yay for relaxing weekends - also YAY WELCOME BACK. The world of contacts is fun. I've been wearing mine since 4th grade. Just wait until one falls out in the middle of the movie theater or if your contact rips and your eye feels like it's going to fall out. Just kidding...sort of. Contacts are great, I love mine, despite all the weird random things that happen with them.

    Glad to have you back and you look fab, as usual :)


Comments are way rad and totally make my day. I love reading each and everyone one of them :)
