Sleep, Glorious Sleep

I slept for 10.5 hours last night. And it was glorious.

I can’t remember the last time I’ve slept that long, but it felt absolutely fantastic. After two nights of less-than-stellar sleep in Savannah during my sister’s bachelorette party, I could barely keep my eyes open at 7:45 p.m. last night and put myself to bed at 8 p.m. I slept like a rock and woke up feeling like a new woman today.

Leslie’s bachelorette party was a blast and I think she had a wonderful time. Seventeen girls attended and we had a great time exploring Savannah and celebrating Leslie together. I’ll be sure to share a full recap soon!

Bachelorette Party Shirts


Ryan and I both have the day off of work today in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., so we slept in and didn’t make it to the gym until 8 a.m. My workout looked a lot like last Thursday’s 50 Rep Workout though I included squats instead of the chest presses and omitted the kettlebell swings. It was a good one and Ryan and I both left looking nice and sweaty.


On our way home from the gym, we took our sweaty selves to Cup O’ the Irish, our favorite local coffee shop.

Cup O' the Irish

A chocolate peanut butter and banana smoothie + A cappuccino = A lovely hot + cold start to the day!

Cup O’ the Irish does a great job of making a fabulous cappuccino with almond milk. I know it’s hard to get a lot of foam with almond milk, so I always leave impressed with their almond milk cappuccino-making skills.

Hope you guys have a great Monday!

    That’s how I was on Friday night. Despite having to get up at 6:30 to get ready for a funeral I still managed to get around 10 hours of sleep on a Friday night.
    My internal alarm clock didn’t let me sleep in today even though I wanted to. It’s alright I have been productive!

    Sleep is such a wonderful thing! I didn’t know how much I loved sleep until I had a baby. :) I love that you feel like sleeping until 8:30 is sleeping in. You will have no problem with motherhood :)

    Happy Monday!

    Glad you caught up on your sleep! When I’m really tired I always tell myself I’m just going to “lay down for a quick nap” at around 7pm… and I end up not waking up until the next day. :) Lucky you having today off!

    Sleep has been my best friend lately. A new schedule at work and new workout routines have me going to bed earlier than I ever have before. But I am not complaining!

    I loovveee Savannah but even more than that I love 10 hours of sleep. I am running on empty after a weekend of traveling for bridal shower activites so can’t wait until I can doze off for a solid night of zzz’s.

    Almond milk caps are the bestest! My place only does soy milk and I avoid certain types of soy like the plague. I usually end up with nonfat milk. Now… I wonder if we could get a pb banana cap whipped up. Kinda like your smoothie and a cap all inone!

    Just wondering, do you usually eat before you go workout? I was thinking about trying early morning workouts this year but I don’t know if I should eat before or work out on an empty stomach, thanks!
