After a lazy morning, today shaped into a productive day!
I spent the morning crafting…
Unfortunately I cannot reveal my projects on zee blog because it’s not a craft for me. Shh, it’s a surprise!
After my first craft project was done, around 11 a.m. Ryan and I headed to the gym for a workout. Both of us weren’t really feelin’ it and basically just went through the motions. I left feeling glad that I worked out, but not very challenged. Eh, it happens.
My workout started with 10 minutes on the elliptical before I completed a total-body strength workout that included three sets of 15 reps of the following exercises:
- Ryan’s awesome shoulder move
- Bicep curls
- Tricep extensions on the TRX
- Leg extensions
- Hamstring curls
- Shoulder raises
- Tricep extensions
Once we were done, we headed home and I cut Ryan’s hair in the backyard before making lunch.
Lunch was all over the place today. I ate a whole wheat tortilla, four pickles and a cup of Greek yogurt before deciding I should eat a real meal. Since the blender was out from this morning, I blended up a quick smoothie bowl before showering and heading out to run some errands.
My errands for the day took me to Park Avenue.
I had some shopping to do at Williams-Sonoma and wanted to pick up a gift from my friend’s wedding registry for her bridal shower next weekend.
Being there reminded me of registering for our wedding! Ah, the good ol’ days…
I had plans to put together a cute gift basket with some of the items on my friend’s registry, but the items I wanted weren’t in stock! I was super bummed.
I eased my irritation by heading over to Peterbrooke Chocolatier for a little pick-me-up.
Their chocolate-covered butter popcorn rocks my socks. It is so good and they always have a big bin of free samples on hand. It never fails to lure me into the store.
While there, I picked up a special treat for my Oreo-lovin’ husband in the form of white chocolate covered Oreos. They aren’t quite as festive as these Oreos, but Ryan loves ‘em!
With a little popcorn in my belly, I meandered down Park Avenue and into some shops. I had a gift card to Gap, so I stopped in the store and tried on a cute tank top, a pair of jeans and a couple of dresses.
Unfortunately the Gap dresses I tried on failed the pear-shaped body test in that they were baggy up top but too butt-huggin’ on the bottom.
The jeans I tried on were really thin and stretchy and felt like yoga pants. Super comfy. When I saw the $34.99 sale price, I was sold.
Woop woop for cheap jeans and a gift card… so double woop woop for FREE jeans!
Once I was done with my personal shopping, I walked to Tuni, an upscale boutique on Park Avenue where my friend Merri was working her final day at the shop. I spent a good hour chatting away with her, trying to soak up the last bit of time I have with her until she’s off to NYC on Monday.
Fro Yo on the Go
I had another craft project looming over my head, so a little after 3 p.m. I said goodbye to Merri before hittin’ up two craft stores.
To fuel my shopping, I picked up a cup of fro yo!
My mix included cake batter, chocolate and taro frozen yogurt topped with lots of indulgent goodies like cookie dough, brownie bits, honey granola and hot fudge. Oh and blueberries for somethin’ healthy.
It was fantastic.
Now I’m home with Ryan and Sadie and we just saw that there’s a Harry Potter movie marathon on t.v. tonight. HP, coupled with my crafts, sounds like a fantastic Saturday night to me!
Enjoy your night!
