I Have a Love/Hate Relationship with Sundays

So I have a love/hate relationship with Sundays, I love them because I love the relaxing feel of the day but I hate them because I know that I have to work the next day. Fortunately it is a short week with Friday off for the 4th.

Yesterday was pretty fun, I need to actually take pictures but I never remember my camera (and you already have evidence of how crappy my cell phone's camera is). Enjoyed a relaxing afternoon with the fam to celebrate the nephew's 7th birthday. Hopefully he had a good day and enjoys all of his gifts. I was pretty good on the eats, I shared half a cheeseburger with the hubs and ate a lot of veggies and fruit.

After that we went to a wedding of a former customer of the husband, it was a very interesting wedding. Backyard BBQ style, very laid back...with a Seahawks theme. I'm talking full on, people in jerseys and such. When Tim and I got married I knew I wanted to incorporate my love of the Huskies into our wedding but I really didn't want it to be super noticeable. I'm not a fan of yellow flowers and yellow isn't a Husky color...Gold is, so I went with Purple and light green. I really only went with green because I LOVE LOVE LOVE green cymbidium orchids. :) So other than that I really only had one other symbol of my love for my team and school....

Anyways, I hope they enjoyed their wedding because that is all that matters!

This morning the hubs went golfing with his friend, they had a 6am tee time. I slept for a super long time (for me, 9.5 hours) and got up around 7:30am. I knew my mom would be up so I called to see what she was up to (nothing, yay). So we made plans to meet for coffee around 9 to talk and so I could get my present from her.

In the meantime, I made a little breakfast. We were super thin on the groceries (no spinach :(). So I had 1/2 cup of 0% Fage with 3/4 cup of PB Puffins, and then a bowl of cantaloupe on the side. I watched a little of Kendra Wilkinson's new show (saved on the DVR) while I ate, she cracks me the eff up.

I met up with my mom at Starbucks and had an iced grande, non-fat, sugar free vanilla latte. For some reason I really hate that they call them 'skinny' lattes. I hate the word skinny for some reason. I really don't know why, just do. It's up there with the words 'moist' and 'panties' hate 'em all. After that I did the first two stops of the grocery round-robin. Trader Joe's was up first, then Costco. Met up with Tim back at home and snacked on some red grapes and watched old 90210 on the Soap Network. I also setup my new Garmin and have it ready for my run tomorrow, I'm so excited to use it!

After that we went to Azul for some lunch. I dug into the chips and salsa because I freaking love their salsa. I had chicken soft tacos (minus the sour cream) and the hubs had the chicken burrito. During lunch I put my cell phone on the table, where I conveniently left it when we left. Fortunately as we were going to the 3rd grocery stop (Safeway) I remembered so we ran back to get it. Doh! You'd think I'd learn my lesson, always forgetting the damn thing.

Came home and took a little nap, and just finished up dinner and the evening chores (cleaning kitchen, making coffee for the am, and making Tim's lunch).

Dinner consisted of a delicious choice top sirloin, broccoli, cauliflower, and a piece of fresh baked sourdough. YUM. In Tim's lunch I packed the following: turkey, avocado, tomato, and hummus on a flat out, cantaloupe, grapes, Kashi TLC trail mix bar, TJ's chocolatey cats cookies, banana, and a protein bar for his breakfast. Whew!

So I think we're going to watch the last 20 minutes of Superbad and relax some more (I have a Jada on my lap right now lol).

Today was another day off from working out, I tend to bounce between 1 rest day and 2 rest days a week. My quads were super sore (in a good way) this morning so I decided to rest again.


  1. Aww - nice weekend (epsecially ending with kitty snuggles)!

    My husband is obsessed with his Garmin... you'll love it! It does way more that I ever imagined it could.

    I'm with you - skinny and those other words are just plain awkward. Ick.

  2. great move on the rest day!

    I always listen to my bod and bounce around in number of days off as well depending on how I feel. it can be hard to remember but those are the days we GROW (muscle) and repair.

    have a great week,

  3. I always leave my cell phone in random places too, so frustrating! Glad you had a good weekend!
