Weekend Recap (1/11- 1/13)
|January 14th, 2013||Live Fit Trainer, Weekend Recap|
This weekend flew by, unfortunately. Although I did a lot this weekend, it didn’t seem that long. With some unfortunately events on Saturday, I wasn’t in that great of a mood, but I’m over it at this point. I’m just happy to have had a few days of relaxing before a crazy week ahead.
After work on Friday, Bryan and I drove out to Staples so I could pick up supplies so I could make my Wedding binder. I tried using the wedding organizer I got at Barnes and Noble, but there was so much information in there that I didn’t need. It was actually making staying organized harder. I’ll do a post this week about my new Wedding Binder and how it’s all set up.
By the time we got home, it was already pretty late and still raining, so there was no motivation for me to walk over to the gym to get in my Live Fit workout. So what did I do instead? I did it at home and used props from around the house – wine bottles!
Saturday morning Bry and I had an appointment with a wedding venue nearby. Let me preface this by saying that although the quote the catering manager gave me was at the top of our budget, I had some hopes that everything would work out. From the very beginning, the last place I wanted to get married was in a hotel or a country club, so when I booked a tour at a country club with an attached hotel I was desperate.
Still I was optimistic. Once we got there, I knew it wasn’t right. It felt too corporate and not like Bryan and I at all. There wasn’t many options for an outdoor ceremony and the ballroom she showed us looked like a cafeteria. All in all it wasn’t right for us and I’m glad that I didn’t like it. It was a stretch anyway and for the price it should have been 100% perfect for us. On to the next!
After the tour, I was super bummed out. We came home and watched some Weeds onDemand, but I was itching to get out of the house for a while. We drove over to a park near our home and found this really cool bird watching deck overlooking the entire park.
The weather was gorgeous! It was in the mid 50’s so for the Philadelphia area that was warm! I was beyond excited, because I got to wear my new J Crew puffer vest! It’s super comfortable and sometimes I forget I’m still wearing it when I come home.
Live Fit – Day 4
Saturday night was leg day for the Live Fit Trainer. I decided to do this workout at home too. I’m getting pretty creative when it comes to at-home workouts. That or I’m just too lazy to get myself to the gym on the weekends.
Sunday was a pretty decent day. I met up with my friend Lauren for brunch and finally got around to asking her to be my bridesmaid! I now have officially asked everyone! Woo!
After I got home from brunch and mimosas, Bryan and I met up with his parents at Parx Casino. An old co-worker’s band was playing! They are always so great live. They are called Field of Play- now go check them out.
Live Fit – Day 5
I decided to take my second rest day on Sunday. I probably had enough energy to go to the gym, but I didn’t make the best food choices on Sunday and felt super bleh by the time I got home. Oh well.
