Weekend Recap

Happy Monday! This past weekend was a pretty busy one!

Jackson and I left for Atlanta on Friday morning. The drive took so long because my McPooperson didn’t stop pooping along the way!

When I got to Atlanta, I got ready really fast before heading out to Blue Moon Pizza for Kassie’s 31st birthday celebration. We rode together since we’re both staying with our parents and they only live a few minutes away from each other.

Kassie’s birthday dinner was a lot of fun. It’s always nice for everybody to get together and just catch up. We ended up hanging out for a few hours before we all headed home by 10pm, just like the old folk that we are.

I was up pretty early Saturday morning with Jackson. I was on call at work from 7a-11a but didn’t get called in, thankfully. I hung out and did some work on the computer and drank my coffee slowly until Jon arrived in Atlanta around 10:45. Once Jackson went down for his nap, Jon and I ran to Target and Kohl’s before we both went our separate ways.

My friend, Alex, was in town this weekend. We’ve been best friends since high school, although she moved to Connecticut five years ago and I haven’t seen her since. Laura and I met up with her for the afternoon. We started at Atlanta Bread Company for some lunch and then ran some errands for Alex at Home Goods. We decided to head to Ponce City Market (a new-ish shopping/living district in the old Sears, Roebuck & Co building) since Alex had never been there before.

One of the stores has a white backdrop for photos so we snapped a few and then went for coffee at my favorite place ever, Dancing Goats. They brew Batdorf & Bronson coffee and I love their coffee beans. I stock up on their decaf when I come to Atlanta so I can brew it in Charleston.

I was so tired since I didn’t sleep well the night before, so I headed home for the evening.

Shockingly, I still did one of my Shift Shop workouts for the night. I had planned on taking a rest day but ended up doing my workout because of my This Is Me: Love Yourself Naked challenge. I bought cheap adjustable weights at Wal-Mart though and they’re so bad. I’m going to have to return them, but I made them work since I didn’t have anything else.

I had to work from 7a-3p on Sunday, so I woke up nice and early to head into work. It was a super slow day and my supervisor actually called to let me leave at 2pm, so I got home a bit early. I had thought about meeting up with Crista, but I was kind of pooped when I got home. I’m just too old for so much fun in one weekend!

I spent Sunday night hanging out with my parents and Jackson and doing another workout for my challenge group. I’m almost two weeks into the challenge, so maybe on Tuesday when I get back to Charleston, I’ll have Jon snap some quick photos and do a two week update!

It’s Monday morning now and I just put Jackson down for his nap. We ran some errands this morning and I got my workout in while he was still awake, surprisingly! We have a vet appointment for Rascal at 2:30 and then I’m meeting up with Laura and Alex for dinner. Tomorrow I head back to Charleston!

  1. Oh no did you get the weights I shared with you from Wal Mart??? I’m sorry, that sucks!

    I don’t know how you have energy sometimes to workout lol, and it’s really paying off too! You look so fit!

    1. I don’t think they had them there! I got a $15 set, but it was terrible. In the end, I took them back and got a regular 10lb set, 15lb set, and one 25lb weight for things like squats. It’s easier because a lot of the workouts I’m doing with Beachbody, I want to switch weights faster than I can with the adjustable weights. They weren’t THAT expensive from Wal-Mart (I spent $75 for all of those), so in the long run, it’ll be worth it!
