The Weekend I Barely Stopped Moving

Good morning friends and happy LEAP DAY! I'll be honest with you, I find 2/29 a very strange day. I can't imagine having my birthday disappear can you? So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to all your leap babies, make sure you enjoy your day!

Moving on to the weekend, phew, this was a doozy of a two days, y'all. It was a weekend of stuff after things after events after workouts and soccer games. Thankfully I was able to chill out a bit Sunday evening and get everything ready for my 6am BODYPUMP class. I'm super excited for early bedtime tonight after we have family dinner for Sportyspice's birthday [gimmeallthehibachi].

This weekend I…

… took the evening off from the gym [after taking a lunch class] and baked these adorable cookies for Sportyspice. She gave up chocolate for Lent and I wanted to bring her a cute treat for her 30th. #minionsrock

… rocked my faux fur vest for the last time this season. LOVE THIS LOOK.

… tried to keep a good attitude after the restaurant made us wait an HOUR for our reservation. Trust, me I get it when things run late, but they let three five tops take our room 30 minutes before the time we reserved. Thankfully we were comped appetizers but it was tough keeping Sportyspice's head up as the minutes ticked away.

… bucked up the birthday girl and had a wonderful time celebrating my favorite middles sister joining the 30 club. It was a fabulous evening full of friends, family, drinks and lots of fun conversations.

… realized I need to square my shoulders in pictures. #hugarm #notthatboxyinrealife

… stayed out way past my bedtime and indulged in one too many whiskey on the rocks. 

… woke up Saturday morning and started rocking it out. Since I knew it was a busy weekend I did a lot of my Sunday prep on Saturday morning. Prepped meat, salads and sweet potato chips for the week and then ate breakfast. 

… went to my 2nd GRIT class and rocked it out once again. #hiitisawesome

… drove to my parent's house and got ready for the baking bonanza with Babyspice. 

… spent four hours baking test cupcakes for Sportyspice's bridal shower. #cerealcupcakesforthewin

… woke up late Sunday morning and scrambled to make it to church on time. #workissuedidnothelp

… sprinted home after church to change into workout gear. Attended my second BODYCOMBAT class to help a fellow instructor tape her assessment video. Lots of workouts in the weekend make the muscles pop. #likemyworkoutearrings #forgottotakethemoffafterchurch

… came home, made food finally, did some stretching and drank pickle juice to loosen up a knot in my calf.
YES, I drank the juice and YES it works.
… played in an early soccer game where we won and I ran around like crazy.

… came home and relaxed for a bit which felt amazing.

… cooked dinner, did some more planning, prepped the rest of my lunch for Monday and put the final touches on Monday morning's BODYPUMP playlist. #gottakeepitfresh

How was your weekend? Were you running around as crazy as me? Make today awesome!

Those cookies are so cute! And oh man, waiting that long when you have a reservation is tough. Especially since you're hungry and it makes it very easy to get hangry! Glad you guys still had a good time though! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

Wow, what a busy weekend you had. Those cookies are too cute! I cannot believe you had to wait an hour for your reservations, I would have been furious. Glad you all still had a good time.

Can't believe how busy your weekend was! 1 hour wait for a reservation? I wouldn't of been able to keep my cool haha!

Kate at Green Fashionista said...

How cute are those cookies?! Minions win all the prizes always! Glad Sporty Spice had a great birthday with the exception of waiting so long to be seated for dinner. I never understood how that happens when you have a reservation! Cheers to a fabulous week <3

I've always been intrigued by leap years as well, I would hate for my birthday to disappear lol.

Megan said...

Wow busy weekend! I really want to try GRIT but none of the gyms around here offer it. :( That's crazy about having to wait an hour for your reservation... what's the point of even having one?! Thankfully it all turned out & you got some free food out of the deal though! I'm going to Google this pickle juice thing... sounds interesting!

Emily said...

Sounds like a busy busy weekend! I love your faux vest and those cupcakes you made look delicious!!!

Lindsay at Lindsay'sSweetWorld said...

You weren't kidding! You were crazy busy this weekend! We had the exact opposite weekend. We were crazy lazy! Haha. Enjoy your weekend!

Nikki @ makeupHER said...

Wow you were a busy bee this weekend!! Those cereal cupcakes look and sound delicious!! I never know if the leap year babies celebrate on 2/28 or 3/1?!

J. Elle said...

Sounds like a super busy, and fun weekend! I like your cute look with the faux fur vest - makes me wish I had worn mine more this season.

Kait said...

I love weekends like this! Ours was much of the same -- go go go! We did some hiking, exploring, relaxing at the beach and trying new recipes. I don't know if I could ever drink pickle juice, but thats a good life hack to keep in mind :)

Cara@HomespunKitchen said...

Sounds like a super fun weekend! I am getting old though, I had 3 drinks on Friday night and felt miserable Saturday morning lol...Happy bday to your sister!!

Kristen @ See You In A Porridge said...

an hour?! that is insane. we went to dinner a few months ago for a friend and it was a surprise, they were running so late i had to put my mean face on and be like.. do you have any idea how embarrassing this surprise will be if we aren't even seated?! we told her 8pm and we had a reservation for 730. we got there at 7. ridiculous. oh things like that make me mad! good that you got free apps but still. not cool.
cereal cupcakes! YUM. your outfit with the fur vest is super fetch as well.

Foxy's Domestic Side said...

Love that fur vest! So cute! And your workout schedule just makes me tired reading it, and DANG you got arms, you go girl!

Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders said...

It sounds like you had such a great weekend celebrating your sister, minus the fact that they made you wait so long for your reservations! Love that you had so much fun testing out cupcakes for your sister's bridal shower!

Nikki said...

Grit pump and combat all in the same weekend annnnnd you lived to tell about it! LOVEIT!

I also adore the minion cookies!

Erin LFF said...

UGH to waiting that long for a reservation. Patience is NOT a strength I have and I probably would have lost my mind- lol! I'm glad you at least got a couple freebies out of it, but so frustrating! And I'm not gonna lie- the thought of drinking pickle juice makes me gag lol! OMG!

Laura Yoder said...

Love the faux fur vest...so cute!!! And I've not heard of that pickle juice theory before - will have to try it!
