Oh, how we love weekends now that Kevin is done with his MBA!!!! We have no commitments this weekends, and that’s just the way we like it! We woke up early, grabbed some Starbucks and went garage saling!
I’ve been wanting tray tables for breakfast in bed forever and found these for $4 at a garage sale this morning. Can you believe Kevin isn’t even a fan of eating in bed? That’s just crazy. It’s so cozy. And you’re eating! What’s not to love?!
Another mug of coffee for me, English muffin with a little honey, and an egg scramble with some apple gouda sausage!
At the garage sale, I also found a triangle (percussion instrument), brand new silpats, and The Tiger’s Wife. Woohoo!! Kevin has gotten all his rakes and shovels and whatnot at garage sales for less than $10 total so he’s happy too!
Speaking of books:
I just finished up this girly girl book by Emily Giffin. It was one of the used books I happened to pick it up at the Tattered Cover last weekend. It took me like four days to get through it which is a clear sign that it wasn’t that good. A little too much teenage angst for me. Her writing is definitely entertaining, but I preferred the last one I read The Heart of the Matter. And I wouldn’t go so far as to call her the modern day Jane Austen as the back cover so boldly proclaims.
Beside my bed currently: Home Front by Kristin Hannah. I like the story so far, but I’ve only read a few chapters and she’s already employed two ridiculous similes.
Friday is a day off from piano teaching! And I plan to keep it that way.
Pippa and I enjoyed a nice 4 mile run, and then I broke out my boot camp workout.
It was a deck of cards workout. Each card represented a certain exercise, and they you had to perform the number on the card.
Here’s a similar Deck of Cards workout if you’re interested in trying it! It was definitely the hardest… and my favorite… workout so far. Of course, it drove the dogs crazy because I had to lock them up and they could hear me jumping around in the next room.
This huge salad was part of my lunch! Greens, broccoli slaw, cherub tomatoes, pepper turkey bacon, and spicy pepitas. I’m trying to get myself in salad mode again, but I’m missing some protein!!
I spent some time in the afternoon on professional development AKA practicing piano myself!
Of course, the dogs couldn’t stay away. Either they love Bach or they hate him, and want me to stop playing him. I can’t figure out which!
She’s never quite satisfied with how close she is to me. What a doll!!
First chili of the season.
Enjoyed on the front porch while discussing how much of the studio’s income I will be spending at the J.Crew Factory Store online this weekend. Haha.
When’s the last time you had breakfast in bed? About an hour ago!
What’s your secret chili ingredient? I’m working on my skills so let me in on your secret!
What’s your Saturday routine? It’s always starts with Starbucks and some QT… I know we have it easy right now in that regard so we’re enjoying it!!!
