Hello friends and happy Monday!
I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. Mine was good – a nice mixture of fun and productive, but also relaxing which is always nice, particularly because I have a feeling that this coming weekend will be pretty crazy – but more on that later!
I woke up bright and early on Saturday morning ready to get my yoga on. While I always look forward to going to a Saturday morning yoga class and always feel fantastic after completing it, it’s sometimes just a little hard to get out of bed when you hear your alarm ringing come 7am. You think, “maybe I’ll just stay in this warm bed and snooze a little longer”. But then you think, “no, get your butt out of bed – you can always come back and take a nap if need be”! (which if you are me, never happens. There is always something to do). Bottom line, yoga was great and I was so glad I went.
I came home, made some breakfast and did some things around the house before I went out and ran some errands. The main highlight of my errand-running was going to Michaels because I needed to buy a nice big photo album. I was finally getting around to putting our wedding candid photos in an album. Two years and one week later, no biggie.
I worked on our wedding album right until Tommy and I had to leave because we had decided to catch a movie earlier that day. We were finally (wow, I sure am using that word a lot in this post…guess it shows you that we are behind the curve on many things 😉 ) seeing Captain Phillips. We thought the movie was okay. A little drawn out, it definitely could have been a wee shorter. However, I have always loved Tom Hanks. I think he’s such a great actor and I thought this movie further exemplified that. Too bad I started feeling a bit queasy during the movie. I think it might have been the popcorn…
On Sunday Tommy, Violet and I woke up early and headed to our go-to-spot Theodore Roosevelt Island, for some hiking. Our little princess had a great time, as did her parents, so it was a great field trip.
Afterward I came home and made my way to my mom’s as she was hosting brunch for a couple of family friends visiting from the Philippines and me. A couple of hours later I came home completely stuffed and settled onto the couch to watch the Redskins with Tommy and Violet. They won as did the Cowboys!
I finished off the weekend catching up on some reading and watching You’ve Got Mail. I guess I was still on my Tom Hank’s kick!
A great weekend through and through!
