I tried really hard to come up with a B word for a meat and cheese board – and either my brain has decided to stop functioning or there’s not just one. Anyway, this weekend was a pretty good one – with a pretty good balance between doing absolutely nothing and being social.
On Friday, I did a quick 20 min HIIT ride to get my weekend started right. After that, we went to look at pool tables, since we think that’s what we’re going to put in our basement, along with a long skinny bar table and stools. I’m really excited to get this room done! Then we went over to Haverty’s and picked out a sectional to replace the couch and futon in our basement. We were really happy to get the one we had been looking at for awhile, and that it will finally fit into a house we own. And then we went to celebrate with margs and cheese dip – as grown ups do when they do a very grown-up thing. We spent the rest of the night watching the Olympics while Sheff busted out some books and passed out on the couch.
Saturday, we got up and got ready for Sheff’s Y basketball game – they lost again, but they looked so good as a team. Sheff and his friend have super amazing chemistry, so it’s fun to see them on the court together. After the game, our friends came over to watch that god-awful AU loss to Florida, and then we just hung out all day. Our neighbors came over for a little bit to socialize, and then B made us a charcuterie board with shrimp for dinner. What success looks like as an adult? Actually getting a picture with your friends instead of taking a million pictures of your kids. We ended the night with a dance party and finally climbed into bed around 11.
Sunday was our super lazy day. I got up and did a 2 mile walk for my recovery day, and then finished up painting the trim in the basement gym. That room looks so good, and I’m so so happy with how it all turned out. It’s actually enjoyable to go in there and get a good sweat on. I spent the rest of the day reading and just hanging out, while everyone else also did their own thing. We had spaghetti and meatballs for dinner, and Sheff and I fell asleep in the bed watching HGTV.
Next weekend, we’ll be in NOLA for the return of Mardi Gras, and I am so pumped! I’ve got all my wigs and Mardi Gras accessories ready to go! I hope you all had a great weekend!
