Weekend Recap

So I did pretty much nothing this weekend but it still felt like it flew by. Why can't time go that fast during the week and slow down on the weekends?

Seriously though, thanks to allergies I spent most of Saturday feeling like crap and getting very little accomplished. Sunday was slightly more productive, I got the house cleaned (ish) and did laundry. This was also my first weekend back on the 21 Day Fix eating plan so that was an exercise in fortitude. (But I did pretty well, yay me!)

Today completes a week of exercising every day, which I hadn't done in a looong time, so I'm pretty happy with my consistency so far.

I also got some work done on sending info to Sarah for installing my new design template! That's why I was randomly posting those "Contact Me" and "Favorite Reads" posts, in case you wondered. Trying to get the blog ready!

I got my first Birchbox:

I signed up at the end of December, so this one was actually for December and I'm supposed to be getting the January one in the next week or so. I hope to do a post on what I got soon! 

Sunday I met one of our former brides to give her the complimentary anniversary cake we do for all of our couples. 

And I got to play with the metallic sharpies I got for my new wall calendar. 

And then I did a little shopping and found a jewelry holder at Kohl's on clearance! I had been looking for one like this to put my most often used jewelry to make it easier to find and grab in the mornings. 

And it actually perfectly matches our bedspread! 

Adam made the BEST chicken for dinner: 

I ended the evening with Downton Abbey, Yoga, and reading. Not a bad weekend, all in all!
