Good morning, beautiful friends. I hope y'all had a great weekend and your Monday is going well so far. I'm in need of that EXTRA LARGE cup of coffee this morning because our weekend was extremely full and it was go, go, go. I am incredibly proud of how much I got done regarding our move and am glad I was also able to schedule some down time with good friends. Kind of sad the goodbye brunches/dinners/lunches/drinks have started, I don't even want to think about April.
Okay, moving on. This weekend I…
… was inspired by the gorgeous weather on Friday so I used this recipe and whipped up a deliciously light shrimp salad. It was everything I wanted it to be and tasted FANTASTIC! #springandsummerperfect
*serve it as is, on a salad or in romaine hart leaves*
… found one of my college shirts and was surprise by how well it still fit. Decided to wear it out Friday night.
… met friends out at a bar to dance to an INCREDBILE COVER BAND! #soooogoood
… had a blast dancing the night away with some of my favorite soccer ladies. It brought me back to my 20 something days and I had a nostalgic moment on the dance floor [thanks wine]. So thankful soccer brought such great people into my life.
… stayed out till midnight and then my night in shining armor picked me up. #solucky
… woke up super early to get in a CXworks class and then some cardio and booty work. #sweatingalcohol
… hustled back home to get ready to meet a good friend for brunch. We have known each other 24 years and I'm so grateful we've stayed so class. It was a great few hours catching up on her life and talking about my big changes. The food was amazing [hello french toast with marshmallow brûlée] and I am still dreaming about the fantastic french press coffee.
… came home and started the purging process.
… was suddenly laid up with an AWFUL headache and got derailed while I rested on the couch.
… thankfully kicked the headache and started the purging of closets. It was actually quite cathartic and I was pretty ruthless using the Spark Joy method. I admit I am quite sad to get rid of this beautiful piece because it no longer fits. Honestly I'm at a loss of what to do with it because I don't just want to give it away, anyone need a birthday dress?
… texted with the sissys and Biana when I came across a maybe. #thanksforyourhelp
… cleaned up quickly and met another friend for an overdue sushi/sake dinner. #wehousedit
… went home, cleaned out my part of the linen closet then went to bed. #neededmoresleep
… woke up and went to church for Palm Sunday. Enjoyed the processing of the Palms and wondered where our next Palm Sunday will be celebrated. CAAAAHRAZY line of thinking.
… met my parents for an impromptu brunch after church at our favorite diner. #traditionsIwillmiss
… arrived home and tackled more purging. Anyone want some books? If not where should I donate?
… treated myself to cup of cocoa for a break. #isntitsupposedtobespring
… moved on to paper purging and recycled old recipts, policies and birthday cards.
… made an old t-shirt into a bag. #newwaytorecycleoldshirts
… had to document how much I got rid of this weekend. This doesn't include two other bags already at my parent's house and two boxes of books and linens we no longer need. #somuchstuff
… finally dropped my car of to get fixed after the hit and run.
… indulged in a cereal dinner for the first time in months. #iblamelehusband
… caught up with my bestest on the phone and created an event for our going away party. #eeek
How was your weekend? Do anything fun?
