What did YOU do this weekend? I did a whole lotta nothin’ and I absolutely loved it! Last week was a busy one, so when I noticed we had no plans on the docket for the weekend, I was excited. Sometimes low key weekends are just what you need to recharge. Of course, I still kept up with my active healthy living lifestyle because that’s just what I do, but besides that, it was low key which was marvelous!
Friday night consisted of take-out dinner from The Cheesecake Factory (Luau Salad for me, Bang Bang Chicken & Shrimp for him, Peanut Butter Cup Fudge Ripple cheesecake to share), and then I made my students’ Valentine’s Day cards. I’m a hippie at heart, so I bought the peace sign box of valentines that come with temporary tattoos. (How cool, right??) And being the teacher I am, I also attached a valentine pencil. Heh heh. My Friday night was SO exciting!
Saturday morning I awoke bright and chipper and headed to my favorite bikram yoga class. When it was over, the class cleared out pretty quickly, so I ran to the locker room, grabbed my phone, and snuck a couple of photos in the steamy room.
The rest of Saturday was super low key. I ran a couple of errands, came home (yes, I showered), and relaxed with the hubby. We ordered take out again which is very rare for us, but we had gift cards to be used. This time we went with Charlie Gitto’s where I ordered the Chicken Nunzio (chicken topped with crab!) and Jonny ordered the Rigatoni With Sausage (awesome sauce for dipping!). After paying for dinner, Jonny noticed there was just a few dollars left on our gift card, so he spent the remainder on Cookies and Cream gelato.
I was very happy. There was a lot of “Mmm” and “This is so good!” going on. Real gelato, baby, can’t beat it! Saturday night was met with another early bedtime which was just fine with us. After a good night’s sleep, I woke early and headed to another awesome bikram yoga class.
Starting my day with yoga was absolutely perfect. The team I coach was supposed to have our first soccer game yesterday, but it ended up getting rained out. Instead, I grocery shopped, caught up on laundry, worked on report cards, did lots of meal prep, and ate a delicious dinner with the in-laws. Oh, and finished the weekend with a tasty bowl of fro yo! 3 desserts in 3 days? Yes! A marvelous low key weekend, indeed!
