Who else is jumping up and down over a holiday weekend??!! Surely not just me!
Today when I get off at TWO, I’ll be heading straight to pick up Nick and then to Gainesville to stay with his brother & sister-in-law! We’re going to a big fireworks show on the 4th and spending a day at Disney on Saturday! Also…. THE FESTIVAL OF THE LION KING IS BACK!!!!!!!! Y’all, this is my absolutely all time favorite show in the world!! It was closed when I visited in May, but it’s back and you can bet I’ll be there! I’m lugging my huge old laptop with me so I can still blog though – seriously, that’s love! I’m in desperate need of a new laptop that’s more travel friendly for easy blogging!
Let’s chat about yesterday though because it was a good day and deserves some attention!
I saw an announcement on our local Whole Foods Facebook Page about Blueberries on sale FOR A DOLLAR!! And to top it off, they were having blueberry pancake samples. Needless to say, Whole Foods on my lunch break was an obvious choice. I bought 5 cartons of blueberries – gave one to my parents, I’m taking one on our car ride this weekend, & then I froze the other 3 cartons. I look forward to using my frozen blueberries in smoothies the next few weeks!
When I got home from work yesterday, I needed to pack, wash a few clothes, workout, eat dinner, & clean out my car. I went ahead and got my WORKOUT in. I did the 10 to 6 Workout again because I continue to feel like it defeats me and I’m so determined to complete the entire set of 10 to 6!
I got my area set up. The gym was pretty dead, so I had plenty of room. I’ve been pretty bad about bringing water to the gym, so I finally remembered that and believe me, it came in handy as I got farther into the workout! I also brought a small notecard to write out my workout. I’m going to start doing this because it really helped!
This time I made it 10 to 7. Not because I couldn’t have finished off the 6, but my dad text me for DINNER in the middle of round 7, so I completed it and then left to go eat. We ate at Newk’s which is my favorite place for a veggie pizza! It completely satisfied my hunger after that sweaty workout!
I went home and cleaned out my car just before the sun set and then finished up my packing. Now the Newt and I are waiting until it’s time for us to head out of town! I’ve been Newt-sitting for Nick’s brother & sister-in-law since the move, so I’m sure he’ll be glad to be back home with his people!
I also brought in my bag of food so the chocolate wouldn’t melt out in my car! Once I hit Starkville, I’m grabbing a Starbucks and then it’s open road from there! I’ll be checking back in with y’all tomorrow though.
Here’s some extra cuteness to start your weekend off with
Do you freeze your own fruit for smoothies?
- If you can’t seem to complete a particular workout, do you go back and do it over and over until you can?
- What’s your go-to Travel Essential? – For me, it’s Starbucks!
