Itz Memorial Day weekend, so hopefully you’ve got the day off work and are able to get outside and enjoy the nice weather! My summer has officially begun as Thursday was my last day with my students. Check out the cutest homemade gift I received as an end of the year present:
Seriously, so cute! It will be the first decorative item that goes up in my new classroom as I’m looping up to fourth grade with my same class. Looping has many benefits and I’m excited I get to stay with these kiddos for another year.
Today I’m linking up with Katie’s Marvelous in my Monday while I share about my marvelous weekend. Lots of marvelous in the blogosphere today!
On Friday I received a totally awesome package from Under Armour for working on their What’s Beautiful campaign with FitFluential. The shoes are baller and so lightweight, I love the neon mesh tank, and the headbands all have inspirational messages on them. Can’t wait to rock the UA gear!
Saturday was my dear grandmother’s 80th birthday, so my mom and aunt hosted a lovely luncheon for her at the Ritz.
Isn’t my Mama beautiful? No one ever believes she just turned 80! She’s definitely the most amazing woman I know.
Stephanie and I took really classy pictures during the luncheon…
Actually there are about a million other pictures (including handstands with my mom!), but they’re on Steph’s camera, so I’ll have to wait on those. This darling picture is taken while we hid behind curtains. Why? Because itz just so darn fun to pop out, yell, and scare my mom and grandma. Yes, we’re kind of eight years old.
Saturday night included a night out on the town! Kait, my co-worker, teammate, and friend is sadly moving to Texas. She had a going away party and we had to take an obligatory hold-her-up picture one last time.
She better come back and visit. We’ll miss her, that’s for sure.
The weather on Sunday in St. Louis was gorgeous. I couldn’t bear to stay indoors, so instead of heading to the gym I went to a local park to walk with a friend. We covered about four miles and I sported one of the Under Armour headbands.
Good, better, best. Never let it rest. <– LOVE! I took this to mean that even on your rest days, you should still be active. I can’t sit still for long, especially when the weather is nice, I just have to MOVE!
As an afternoon pick-me-up, I decided to make a fresh juice with my NutriPro juicer.
Cucumber, grapefruit, apple, and lemon made quite a refreshing juice!
I had no plans for the evening, but the weather was still gorgeous, so I called my good friend, Jessica, and we went to Forest Park to walk another four miles before eating dinner at the Boathouse.
Yeah, the glass of wine (in a plastic cup) sounded better than it turned out to be. The warm weather coupled with the fact we just got done walking did not make the red wine appealing. Stupid choice for ordering it and a waste of money. Oh well. My black bean and corn veggie burger was AWESOME as were the beer-battered fries that accompanied it. I rarely eat fries, but these were good!
Then I went home and snuggled with this little pooch for the remainder of the evening. We were both tired from all the walking (Zoey got two mini-walks yesterday, too!).
What’d you do over the weekend? Any plans for today?
