My Beautifully Relaxing Weekend

Although Labor Day weekend isn’t technically over for me yet, I am still going to give you a quick little recap of my wonderfully relaxing weekend so far.

It has involved lots of great food…nummy BBQ food spread

Shopping…(no I didn’t buy this dress but after seeing this photo, I kinda wish I would have. It’s cute!)

Walks and some light jogging!

I actually went for a light and slow jog yesterday for about two miles. I cannot even begin to explain how good it felt. I am still needing to take it slow in the name of healing, but my jog was only slightly faster than walking pace so IĀ am still taking it easy. I know better than to push myself at this point in the game.

Now that the weather has cooled off a bit and we are in the 70’s versus the 90’s, it makes outdoor running a lot more enjoyable. I may even get out for a jog this morning again!

I plan to finish off the long weekend with some more shopping. I have a super amazing event coming up so I am shopping for an outfit. More to come on that soon!

Also, I may work on a little bit of food prep. I have big plans for dinner with my lovely lady friend Kalley tomorrow. Get excited!

How was your weekend?! Any good eats I should know about?

  1. Sounds like a perfect weekend! Food, friends/family, babies/puppies and shopping…you can’t go wrong with that! And, that dress looks pretty darn good on you too! You might have to go back and pick that up! šŸ˜‰

    Yesterday, my husband and I had the family over for a BBQ. It turned out great and the food turned out so yummy too!

      Ha ha, good thing it is a good 25 minutes away or I probably would go back and get it. šŸ™‚ I don’t really need it though!

      I’m glad your BBQ turned out great!

      Oh my goodness it was so good. We were at a restaurant called Dangerfield’s. I really loved the rich chocolate chocolate cake!
