Good morning loves. This weekend seemed to fly by, but it always does when I'm go-go-go. I need to learn to relax at home more often.
Luckily, my weekend began at noon on Friday. :) I love when it works out that way. I started it off right by hitting up a Pure Barre class. I expected it to be pretty full, thinking people would come on their lunch breaks, but it was a little bare.
After I grabbed a Jamba Juice smoothie (so conveniently located next to the PB studio) for lunch, I decided I deserved a manicure. Also, my nails were AWFUL. I always seem to let them get horrible before I go in for a touch up. I went with a french shellac mani this time. The french always seems to last longer, or so it seems because you can't tell in the back when they've grown out. ;)
When I left the salon, I noticed while driving that my nails still had that tacky/sticky feeling to them. Jo mentioned that they probably forgot to do a final swipe of alcohol over my nails and that's why. I was thinking that after my shower and whatnot, it'd go away. It did not. The stickiness was driving me crazy, so I put a coat of clear polish on them hoping it wouldn't ruin it.
I headed to meet up with my sister after she got off work because we were going to see our friend who is a GM for a frozen yogurt shop, and her store just recently opened. I'm so proud of her, so I wanted to check out her new digs. Plus, the free fro-yo didn't hurt either. ;) It was delicious, and unfortunately I got no picture because I ate it just as fast as it was put in front of me.
My sister and I were headed to meet up with my BFF (who is 9 months pregnant!!!) and her daughter for lunch. It was so nice to catch up with her before she delivers another sweet girl. I did get a picture of me feeling the baby kick, but she'd probably kill me if I posted it here. Ya know, she doesn't feel like she looks super flattering right now, haha. So, instead I'll share one of me and my sister.
After lunch, we did a little shopping. Steph was buying some school clothes for her kid since it was tax-free weekend, so Casey and I browsed a second hand shop next door, and y'all - I found these fabulous Tory Burch wedges for only $45!!! I felt like it was such a steal that I couldn't pass them up, right?
But, I did pass them up. They were half a size too big. And while I thought I could overlook that, I left the shoes on and walked around the store for a bit to see how they would wear. While comfortable, I just couldn't get past the lifting in the back towards my heel every time I took a step. :( I hope the person who finds these knows what a fabulous deal she's getting.
Later that night, we had dinner at Plucker's. We loooove that place. It's so good and the atmosphere is fun too, plus Nate could watch the game. ;) Always a win-win in his book.
If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that on my caption of this pic, I said that Nate asked me why I'm always taking pictures of him. I mean, does he not understand that IG is meant for sharing every detail of my life. ;) Plus, they usually go on my blog too, duh.
Started my day off with a PB class. Feels so good to get it out of the way first thing in the morning, so I can enjoy the rest of my day.
Came home and Nate and I cleaned the apartment pretty good. Every few weekends or so, we get a wild hair and just CLEAN. It's nice and refreshing to start a new week with a clean place.
We headed to my mom's for an early dinner with the rest of the fam. My mom made lasagna. The recipe she uses has been handed down through out her dad's side of the family. It's amazing, and my great great grandmother was actually offered money long ago by a local Italian restaurant for the recipe, and she declined saying it's to stay in the family. :) My mom doesn't make it often, but when she does it's all I think about for days.
Also, when I took this picture, I said aloud, I wish I were a food photographer. I just think it would be really fun, but I don't know the first thing about photography and plus, all I use is the camera on my iPhone. Not very profesh.
Anyway! That's pretty much the gist of my weekend. How was yours??
