Oh Hey, Friday

Yippee, the long weekend is here!  I am so glad to have some time with nothing strict on the agenda.  Martin's family is coming to visit this weekend and I look forward to just relaxing and enjoying the weekend, no time crunch or tons of things to get done, just go with the flow, which I am so ready to do!

Here's a look back at a few highlights of my week.

1| On Monday Martin and I had some time to kill before an appointment and stumbled upon a new to us antique store.  I was super excited about this one, usually I don't have great luck at the antique stores in our area, but this one seemed to have tons of great finds.  Though we didn't have a lot of time to spend in there that day, I still managed to walk out with a small Jadeite Fire King bowl, and look forward to going back.

2| After our antique adventure I had my second acupuncture appointment.  I didn't notice much after my first session, but after my second one I could totally start to feel the effects.  It wasn't really immediately, more so the next day.  I could feel myself being more calm and relaxed, which is a big part of me doing this.  But also, the medication that I've been on typically doesn't make me feel that great (think bloated, and just generally kinda gross feeling) and I could definitely tell the difference in that department, I felt so much better.  I'm excited to see what happens next week.

3| I whipped up a quick easy lunch with a pot full of vegetables from our garden.  It felt good knowing we grew everything that was in that pot!  Onions, zucchini, tomatoes, it was awesome.  After I sauteed them I mixed in some quinoa, and finished, easy.

4| I managed to work out 4 days in a row this week, and frankly I think that needs celebrating.  It really shouldn't be considered quite the feet, but well, it is, at least for me.  I actually really enjoy working out, what I don't enjoy is the feeling like I don't have enough time to get everything done that I want/need to get done.  

5| It only took me about 5 years of living in this house, but I finally managed to get some pictures up on our bedroom walls.  You know, it's really the little things!  I hope to be sharing some of the progress made in there soon.

Me and my reminder app on my phone have been BFF's this week with how much I've had to get done.  I am so looking forward to not trying to get anything done for the next three days.  Well except for eating, sleeping, you know the necessities.  I hope everyone gets a chance to relax and enjoy the long holiday weekend.  Happy Friday!

  2. Love new antique stores!!! Great find. I love it when I can work out at least three times...way to go!

  3. I'm so glad to hear that your second acupuncture appointment was a success! Hopefully it continues to be. I hope you have a great weekend, lady!

  4. uhm those veggies look AWESOME! Yum! And yay for working out 4 days this week! I use runtastic to track my runs and it usually has some smart ass remark for me on Sunday "2 workouts this week is great, but maybe try for 3." "3 workouts in a week is pretty good, maybe try for 4." So last week I had 4 and told my husband I was looking forward to what smart aleck remark runtastic would have for me--but apparently 4 is the magic number because it just said way to go! haha!

  5. I know, right?! Hope you have a great weekend!

  6. I am looking forward to my next one. Hope your weekend is great, especially if you made it up to the lake!

  7. LOL, I love it - maybe I need to look into the app to get my butt in gear!
