running behind

My plan for today was to go to yoga in the morning, walk to work, walk home, have a quick dinner and then prep a few things for dinner tomorrow because my parents and brother are coming for a meal.  Here’s how my day went.

5:30 Wake up

5:54 Arrive at hot yoga class

6:00 “On your backs.” – ab work begins followed by an hour of morning yoga power

7:00 Wake up from savasana

7:20 Post-shower/pre-work nap

8:32 Almost ready to go but officially too late to walk to work

8:45 Drive to work

8:54 Punched in, let the office grind begin

1:12 Eat lackluster but delicious lunch.  Hello, Muenster!

1:30 Convince Todd that it might be a good idea for him to run to the gym, meet me at the office and walk home with me

3:45 Texts start arriving with pictures of the homemade BBQ sauce and salsa Todd has been making, belly begins to grumble again

5:30 Todd arrives at the office, flip flops in hand, to walk home with me in the glorious sun

5:32 Flip flops on, pants rolled up into shorts, walking home.

5:40 Quick stop at Nantucket Baking Co. to pick up buns for veggie burgers that will accompany Todd’s fresh batch of homemade BBQ sauce

5:41 Choose pretzels to use as buns – excitement rises, belly begins to grumble

 

6:05 Home.  Time to start cooking.

6:38 Chow time!  In just 33 minutes we’ve whipped up a pretty little meal

7:02 Dinner is over, time to write a quick blog post before starting to prep for tomorrow night’s dinner for my parents

7:05 Kitchen too hot, to bedroom to blog because it’s more comfortable in there

7:07 Eyelids heavy

7:30 Todd comes in to wake me, prep time

7:31 Snooze

9:01 Is it 7:30 yet?  I’m awake!

9:02 Realize I woke up early this morning so at least there’s an excuse for all of my tired

9:39 Done with lackluster blog post, time to prep for tomorrow’s dinner – only two hours behind schedule

The day didn’t go exactly as I planned but it’s all good.  An evening nap isn’t the worst thing in the world.  And that dinner, that was so good.  Got to love those spicy black bean burgers.  Time to prep, for real this time!

Did your day go as planned today?

Do you mind if your day doesn’t go as planned?

monday off

Back to life but not quite back to reality yet.  Even though our honeymoon officially ended yesterday I had today off to regroup and organize my life a little bit after the wedding.

I started today with a great hot yoga class at the Funky Buddha.  And, in exciting news, I signed up for their year-long membership.  Since I’ve started practicing there, I’ve been on a month-to-month plan but I’ve committed to a year of yoga and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have access to unlimited yoga sessions for the next 365.

After yoga I had a quick bowl of Cheerios – we haven’t had a chance to hit the grocery store yet but Todd’s mom sent along a bag of groceries with Todd’s dad when he picked us up at the airport last night, so sweet!

My parents left us those beautiful tulips on Todd’s windshield.  What great parents we have!

Anyways, post-yoga and breakfast I met Todd out at our former home, his parents’ lake house, to clean out some more things.  Moving is not my favorite, not in the least but we made some good progress.

After that I went to Target for some necessities (bath mat, trash can, drawer organizers, q-tips) which took me a good chunk of the afternoon.  While I love shopping, make decisions has never been my strong suit.

When I got back home Todd and I enjoyed a quick Oberon before heading over to my parents’ house to open wedding gifts.  Todd’s parents met us there as well and we had a fun time talking about the wedding, eating pizza from Nantucket Bakery and opening gifts.  What a fun night!

We got home and started to organize a little but I was tired and as soon as the silverware drawer was fully stocked with our new place settings I nestled in to one of the two chairs in our apartment and found a Sex and the City marathon to watch.  Not a bad Monday at all.

I go back to work tomorrow and I’m so glad that it will be a four-day week.  After all of that relaxing in Cancun, I’m not sure I’m cut out for a 9-5 anymore. Only time will tell…

Hopefully this week I’ll have a chance to use some of the awesome new kitchen gear we have.  This poor blog has been sadly recipe-free for the last few weeks.  Wedding brain, I tell you what.

How was your Monday?
