Sunday was a good one in the Fagan household, for no particular reason other than that we totally neglected the laundry, cleaning and stroller assembly we had on our to-do list and instead decided to take the day to see a matinee movie, relax and spend some time outside.
Since long walks with Sadie are out for me right now, Ryan and I decided to try to take her paddle boarding with us on Sunday morning, thinking that might be a good way to get all of us outside without intensifying my sacroiliac pain.
Since we are nowhere near good enough on paddle boards to bring a camera along on our adventures, that’s the only picture we have of our morning on the water, but we lasted about 90 minutes. Sadie was pretty much the worst paddle boarder in all the land and kept hoping off one of our boards and swimming to the other. Indecisive doggie!
I ended up sitting down on my board for the second half of our adventure so Sadie could sit in my lap and be a little more comfortable. I’m sure we were quite a sight!
We made it back home around 11 a.m. and our stomachs told us it was time for lunch so we quickly changed and drove to Chipotle to satisfy a craving.
I’m not sure what was in my burrito bowl that made it so spicy, but it was on fire. There must have been some kind of pepper in there that normally isn’t in my preferred toppings because it was waaay spicier than usual. Phew!
With full bellies, Ryan and I did a little shopping in Birkdale Village.
Ryan was a trooper and headed into Victoria’s Secret with me so I could exchange a bikini top I ordered for a larger size. (I got this one in Brazilian Teal/Neon Lemon.) Aside from my bikini top, we also left with something quiiiiite sexy. A comfy oversize t-shirt. Oh yes!
And then it was movie time!
We saw an early afternoon showing of Jurassic World! I really wanted to see the movie because I loved the book Jurassic Park and the previous movie, so my hopes for this one were high. Ryan and I both liked it a lot and it definitely kept my attention the whole time.
After our movie, we drove home, picked up Sadie and took advantage of the sunny day by boating for a few hours before dinner.
We got take out for dinner and ended up eating on the couch while watching the Women’s World Cup Final game which was awesome. I’m not really a huge soccer fan (Ryan loves it), but we both got really into the World Cup this year and have had fun cheering for the Women’s National Team. I was really looking forward to watching the final game and they absolutely killed it last night!
It was definitely a fun game to watch… Even if Sadie didn’t think so…
And yes, whenever we are chilling on the couch, Sadie must be touching us somehow… Even if it’s just my foot!
Hope you guys had a good weekend and that Monday is flyin’ by for you!
P.S. If you are a work-from-home parent, I’d love to hear your advice regarding how you balance working from home and caring for your little one(s). I’m hoping to share a blog post full of your top tips, as it’s something that’s been on my mind since I’ll be in a similar situation soon (balancing blogging + teaching at the gym when I am cleared to exercise again + being a mom)! Please feel free to weigh in below (or shoot me an email at email@example.com) with any advice you may have that you wouldn’t mind me including in my post. I really appreciate it!!
