Weekending - { The One With New Hair And A New Lake}

Hey, hey, honeybees! How you doing today? Did everyone have a great weekend? I'm coming at you pretty tired from a quick weekend away. Well, not away, we were in the same state, just NORTH. Le Husband has family who were at a lake house an hour away and they sent us an invite last month. Even though life is busy already, we said yes because, family. 

And yes, I'm super tired because someone ate way too much bad for me food Saturday night and my body decided to rebel and not let me sleep. Yeah, super fun, but oh well. Lesson learned, limit the processed food or you will pay, ha. Since I'm tired this weekend update is fast and furious as I type it this morning. 

My weekend started great on Friday as I had a hair appointment to get my locks fresh. It had been way too long since my last visit to the salon and things were pretty desperate. If you follow me on Instagram [why aren't you?] you would have seen I asked for some help deciding what to do with the huuur. Long story short [ha!] I used to only be able to grow my hair out past my chin and always had short hair. Well, around 30 - and my engagement - my hair decided it would grow so I was able to get it long enough for an updo for my wedding. I thought I wanted to do the post wedding chop but never did and have had hair the same length since 2013. Since I JUST recently became a Tennessee resident I thought, new state, new hair, let's try this. I honestly expected to chicken out, but asking online friends and my sisters for advice and the glass of wine I had at the salon gave me the courage to try something new. 






Y'all, I LOVE IT! SO much. I gave the stylist a bit of license and it was a lil shorter than expected, but I TOTALLY 100% LOVE IT! So freeing, so fresh, so fun, so summer, so blonde, SO NEW! SCORE!

The rest of the evening was spent doing stuff around the house since family is coming into THIS WEEKEND [I can NOT handle the excitement]. Saturday morning I was up bright and early [I miss sleep] to sub two classes for someone. BODYCOMBAT was fun, I'm still working on my conditioning but I rocked BODYPUMP like no one's business. I don't say that to be cocky, but with so many classes and some feeling subpar it's always nice to have a YES I ROCK moment. 

I scurried home, wolfed down some protein oats and eggs and then we packed up all the food and drove about an hour north to meet Le Husband's family. Norris lake is gorgeous and the house was so quaint at fun. I failed to take pictures, sorry. There also was very limited to no service so we spent the weekend nicely unplugged. Lots of lake time Saturday, lots of delicious food for dinner and lots of funny shenanigans from drinking alcohol. My tolerance is low with how little I drink now, but it was funny watching others enjoy themselves. 

Sunday morning arrived and we hung out until mid afternoon then headed home. I remembered to snap a few pictures before we left, thank goodness. It was so beautiful, I see why so many people vacation here. 



The drive home was just long enough for me to catch a quick nap and then it was a whirl wind of dinner out, cleaning, painting and getting ready for the week. The alarm came way too quickly this morning and I'm trying to get off the struggle bus and into the week. There is no time for chill because I have to learn FIVE new RELEASES for launch next month, finish putting together the house and make sure we have enough food for family. I want the week to slow down and speed up at the same time, haha. 

Hope you have a wonderful week friends! I'm cheering for you!
