My First Weekend Back in the USA

You would think the first weekend back would be a breeze and mega chilltastic right? Makes sense to use Saturday and Sunday as two days of rest and reorganization before the next work week? OH if only. I don't know how it's possible but I think I'm just as tired from my trip as I was on Wednesday.

My weekend highlights consisted of…

… Le Husband leaving to visit his family before heading back down to Tennessee. Our first days apart after being together for 42. #isitweirdimissedhimmorethanbefore

… team teaching a BODYPUMP lunch class on Friday. Thankfully I remembered all the choreography [even the new stuff learned on the cruise] and was able to complete the whole class without passing out ;)! #usedlightweightsthough

… this delicious find at WholeFoods. #spawaterforthewin

… dinner al fresco with Sportyspice because Friday was quite gorgeous.

… going out with the sissys for one last hoorah. Normally I would have passed because I was almost crying tired, but this was needed since I've been gone for so long and I enjoyed dancing in the corner while they rocked it on the floor. #needtolearnmorelinedances #yesimrockingglasses #theyhidemytiredeyes

… waking up earlier than I wanted [grrrr] so I caught up on Nashville and other shows.

… driving to visit my bestest friend and her sweet family of SIX now. She gave birth to her fourth child while I was away so she was a priority on the must see now list.

… snuggling and cuddling the three week old lil guy. He slept on me for two hours and it was the sweetest feeling in the whole wide world. #isthatwhatthebabyitchisallabout

… came home, stuffed some wedding envelopes for Sportyspice [!] then promptly bought Five Guys for a sissy dinner. The bar the night before was fun, but the music was so loud we couldn't really chat so we decided an evening in was needed. It was a blast of reminiscing, Lord of the Ring talking [schmeagle], plotting, laughing, dancing and just wonderful sissy time.

… my last church service at home. Gonna miss this beautiful place. I've taken eight mission trips, served on the Communion committee, in the children's ministry and sang in the choir in the last 12 years. It will be hard to find a place to replace this one. 

… a 'BUT I'M LEAVING' brunch with the famjam [minus Le Husband]. We have  restaurant we always frequent for special occasions after church and it was the perfect easy to commemorate the morning. OH and it was helladelicious!

… famjam work on invitations. Guess who drew the short straw licking the envelopes?!?! But, they are DONE!

… a jam session with BabySpice, a recorder and her guitar. #someonehasafunnyinstagramvideo


… the return of DaddyATM! #livingathomehassomeperks #yesimpayinghimback #nodollasonlyeuros

… a fantastic catch up dim sum dinner with a good friend. #gotmyasainfoodfix

… bed around 945pm because I was zonked.

Overall it was a wonderful weekend, just not quite the downtime I expected. Now it's time to lock into training mode and try to find some workout time this week, too. Hope everyone has a fabulous Monday!

Whew! That's a lot of stuff to do in a weekend... let alone just getting back from Europe weekend!! I have been sick since I got home from DC, so I've totally lost track of the days... lol!

Jessica (The Newly) said...

As exhausted as I know you are, it looks like you are definitely making the most of the time you have left and I love that. That spa water sounds delish! I would love a Five Guys date with you and am super jealous of all your fun sissy time. I know you'll miss having them so close. Thinking of you as you prepare to move!
