making the most of memorial day weekend

let’s go back to friday afternoon, the start of the lovely long weekend! poor mike had to work saturday, sunday, and monday, so we tried to squeeze in some fun in the mornings and at night.

on friday after school, i came home, showered, and we headed right down to west hartford. i did a little shopping and we grabbed a drink and sat out on the sidewalk until the skies opened up! we were trying to decide where to go to dinner, and capital grille it was! it was SO delicious and relaxing…


and of course, i am reckless and some of my wine went flying!

on saturday morning, mike went off to work and i went for a run and did all kinds of errands and felt like a real housewife. when he got home, we were both so tired that we just got out favorite mexican takeout and relaxed like bums. it was pretty perfect, actually!

the next morning, we were all nice and rested up, so we headed out for the same run i did the day before. it was a nice, fast 3.5 miles, but when we got home, i wanted more! so, i made us do a 20 minute “deck wod”. it was similar to the one i did last weekend, minus the sit ups because both of our butts were recovering from sit up injuries!!! after that, we were super sweaty, sore, and ready for our days!

our crossfit box was closed on monday, so we went to our other gym and took over the group exercise room. we did 3 rounds of this crazy, exhausting, wonderful wod I found online.

i ordered us some jump ropes so we can practice our double unders, and just so we can add them to our home wods when we feel like it! can’t wait for them to get here tomorrow…

after that torture, i did 50 american kb swings and some ab work…. so so so sweaty!

i think i spent a lot of time doing research online this weekend too {wedding, shopping, workouts, houses, teaching ideas, etc!} i found this awesome shirt that i think i need to get for mike for a funny wedding present…

and, you already know how my weekend ended 🙂

hope you had a wonderful long weekend… i’m already looking forward to this coming one!


last weekend

since it’s almost time for the weekend, i thought i would share some pictures from last weekend!

saturday started off with an at-home-wod:


it left me feeling like this, but made the rest of my day feel great!

sunday was such a nice day and it was even more nice to have mike home!!! we got so much done, it was really the perfect day…

we went and had breakfast and took the pups for a little run and swim!



ruby is so cute with the whole swimming thing. every year, she gets more daring and this year, i have a feeling she’s going to be just like brutus: always wanting to be in the water! pools, oceans, lakes, ponds, puddles…. they love it!


then i did all kinds of house stuff while mike washed our cars until i begged him to go to the driving range!

we also had ice cream for lunch. it’s always a good idea.

later on, we took the dogs on their favorite walk {this is something i have been seriously loving lately} and grilled out on our lovely little deck {also loving!}

it was just a simple, perfect day.
