Weekend Wrap Up: Memorial Day Edition
I spent Saturday morning enjoying a free birthday yoga class at my new favorite yoga studio, Shakti Yoga. I haven't been a lot in the past month, but going on Saturday reminded me of how much I love yoga. I don't know how I think I'm going to fit anymore work-outs into this schedule, but maybe I can squeeze in a class a week. Maybe...
After yoga, I went to Headquarters to cash in my free birthday latte courtesy of my friend Melanie. I had to install Square Wallet to use it. Y'all, the future is now.
I took my free local honey latte (thank you, Melanie!) & went across the street to my friend Jaime's house to see the spoils of her recent Opry Mills shopping spree & help her put together outfits. Jaime returned the favor on Sunday by picking up another Forever 21 bracelet that I was lusting over & putting it in my mailbox. Friends who enable your gold, spiky bracelet addiction are the best!
I spent the rest of Saturday reading outside on our deck. My free library kindle edition of I Want My MTV expired on Sunday, so I was frantically trying to finish it. Spoiler alert: I didn't. But I love it! I just need to buy it so I can finish it.
Since my family spent last weekend cheering me on during my triathlon, we pushed my birthday celebration to this weekend. My mom knows how much I love Jeni's Ice Cream, so they drove up & met us for lunch at Rosepepper, then took us across the street for ice cream.
These J & K letters are bookends! Made out of books! My mom found the K & bought it, then had the shop teacher at her school make the J out of a book she bought at Goodwill. Aren't they cute?! I love them!
My dad took this picture of me, my mom & John eating our ice cream. Afterwards, John & I went to Grimey's to buy Daft Punk & then we drove around all afternoon listening to it. I was craving a hamburger, so John went to the store, got all the fixins & grilled us some hamburgers, which we ate while watching ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT!!!
I honestly spent the majority of yesterday lounging around the house & playing on the internet. I spent HOURS organizing my Pinterest page - making new, more specific boards & deleting pins, etc. After lunch, I pulled myself together & headed east for a Memorial Day East Nasty Splashdown. Like all successful pool parties, inflatable Kim Kardashian was in attendance. She says, "Hey, y'all!"
I rounded out my 3-day weekend by watching The Impossible last night. That movie is INTENSE. I'm pretty sure I broke my tear ducts. Good movie though.
