I can’t believe it’s Friday already. The week flew by, which makes me very happy because I’m SO ready for the weekend. The weather has been crummy here and it doesn’t look like it’s going to get much better. I guess that gives me the excuse to stay indoors and watch movies all weekend. This recap post may be even more boring than the last one, but my life has been pretty chill lately and quite relaxing. I’m sure once the rain stops, I’ll be out and about nonstop again.
Since I left my last recap post off on Friday, I thought I should start there. It’s so hard to write recap posts after two weeks, so I’m going to try hard to post one every week.
After working and power cleaning on Friday, I went to get my nails done. I tried out a new nail bar that serves wine! I think it would be so much fun to go with friends.
For dinner on Friday night, I made my roasted vegetables, baked chicken and brown rice. This is a great meal to make because the leftovers last for days.
I relaxed on Saturday morning and watched five episodes of House of Cards. It’s getting so good!
Becca and I headed to the pool on Saturday afternoon to soak up some rays!
I was loving my new blue nails!
The water was so cold!
My Saturday night was so much fun. I know I usually take photos and blog everything, but I’ve been living in the moment more. I headed uptown to have dinner and wine at the Wooden Vine and then hung out with some friends. It was so much fun.
I had breakfast and coffee at the 7th Street Public Market on Sunday morning. If you’re ever looking for a place to grab a healthy breakfast, try the Local Loaf! It was delicious. My omelet had spinach, tomato, peppers and onion. Not Just Coffee is another one of my favorite spots.
Breakfast was followed by a ten mile walk! It took about 2 1/2 hours, but it was so much fun. The weather couldn’t have been anymore perfect.
Later that night I had dinner with Becca. I ordered a grilled chicken salad at a Pub in Baxter Village.
I decided to take a trip out to see my dad on Monday morning. Grumples loves going out there to run around in the backyard.
While he played around, I headed out for a three mile run.
I made breakfast after my run. I had half an english muffin with butter, two eggs and blueberries.
My dad guilted me into 18 holes later that afternoon.
It was an excuse to wear my new Fabletics golf gear 🙂
I did nothing but work and drink coffee on Tuesday. It rained all day, so I didn’t feel bad about staying indoors.
This guy is always super cuddly and lazy on rainy days too.
But he’ll get up for David Muir.
I was getting cabin fever on Wednesday morning, so I headed over to Beccas work to have lunch with her on her break.
We found an abandoned parking lot to have our lunch at. I’m not sure why those kinds of things excite us.
I had a Fuji Apple Chicken salad from Panera with avocado added and no cheese.
Becca had the Greek salad and I want to get that one next time. It was amazing! Panera seriously has the best salads.
Partner in crime.
I headed back home to work for the rest of the afternoon. I had some strawberries from the Peach Stand in Fort Mill, SC, pineapple and banana with a drizzle of honey.
Becca and her pup came over later than night so we could go for a four mile dog walk. It’s been so cool down here and the dogs love this weather.
Grumples loves to quit on me.
After the walk, I made some snacks to have while watching Nashville. I had carrots with roasted red pepper hummus, homemade guacamole and jalapeño Skinny pop.
There is something about having coffee on rainy days…it’s more enjoyable. I finished up some emails and blogs while drinking coffee Thursday morning and I did not want to get up.
This big guy needed some exercise and so did I. It was misting and a little bit chilly, but still perfect for a long walk.
He quit after four miles. Once he’s done, it’s a struggle. He’ll stop and sleep wherever he wants.
So I took a seat. There is no trying to get his stubborn butt up until HE’S ready.
After our walk, we went back home and I worked, did some grocery shopping and laundry.
I wasn’t kidding when I said my week was pretty low-key and nothing too crazy happened. There are a lot of things I wish I could blog about in this post, but maybe over time. Tonight I’m staying in and making baked glazed salmon, green beans and roasted sweet potatoes!
I hope you all have beautiful weather this weekend!
