As I sit here trying to remember all I did this weekend I can barely remember it was that much of a whirlwind. My main goal was to get myself caught up on all things after being away on vacation and then almost immediately a work trip. It was also brutally hot both days so it was draining. So it wasn’t really glamourous but I did get a lot done.
Saturday morning I went into work for 4.5 hours. It was so nice not getting interrupted and being able to get caught up. I also have a game plan for training my second new trainee. I think he is going to be a rockstar, thankfully.
Once I got home I had some lunch and laid out in my zero gravity chair catching some rays and reading my book. I then headed to the local park to walk 5.5 miles.
Sunday was pretty relaxed. I went grocery shopping then did a UFC workout while putting a load of laundry in. Then I did meal prep and had lunch.
Linking up with Biana from B Loved Boston.

It was insanely hot this weekend and I can’t imagine today – 91 wahhhh!! I’m glad you had a great weekend – sounds incredibly productive too! Happy Monday! xo, Biana
I don’t want to go outside and find out it was hot enough this morning! Ugh! It was a good one, I feel back to normal a bit.
more coffee, less talky says
must’ve been hot all along the east coast because it was sweltering here, too (i’m not complaining!). sounds like a great weekend and very productive!
It was brutal, it is in the 90’s today. I am over it. I need a constant 70-75 to be happy. This is too much.

Awesome. I would love a walking partner. I can walk for days!! Great idea to go in Saturday to catch up.
Goddess speed with everything !
Have a good week!
Love, Steph’s Momma
It is always nice to walk with a friend. It was nice to catch up after being out of the office all week.
As much as going into work on the weekends sucks, it is also sooooooo nice! You’re right – without the interruptions you can get a lot more done. And obvs you can wear more comfy clothes, too – win!!!!!!!!
5.5 mile walk? Dayuuuuum!
It was so productive!! True! Jeans and a Tee. It was a good walk, but I was a sweaty mess.
It was so hot this weekend!! Working on the weekends sucks. I know I worked all weekend. Haha..when I got out of work on Saturday, I had I idea it was gonna rain. It was so crazy. I wanted to run to target but the roads were just too bad and that lightening was crazy. I decide just to go home. Love all your new goodies. Yay for birthdays.
Girl you work a lot of weekends! So impressive. I had no idea either but it was so bad.
Love Seamus’ tongue! Glad you got some rest mixed with activity this weekend – that seems to be your sweet spot! Do I detect a new love of anchors coming on?
He always has it hanging out the side, I love it! Yes, I need that mix of rest and productivity because my weekdays are just not. I have loved them for awhile now and my bathroom is already themed with anchors so the bathmat was a perfect find!
Catch up weekends are so important! I’m glad you got one in and I hope your new trainee really helps your work load!
It really helped. He is a superstar so far!
Rebecca Jo says
Anchors are EVERYWHERE lately. I love it!! Such a sign of scripture for me 🙂
Look at you kicking the FitBit steps in the rear!!!
They are my favorite, such a symbol of strength. It was on fire this weekend!! It felt good after all the vacationing and traveling.
Brianne Bracco says
That’ s a lot of rain! Send some our way!!
It came so fast and furious! You can have it.
i don’t think i have ever seen almost famous in it’s entirety, i tried a few years ago but i don’t think it’s my jam (or maybe i just didn’t understand it lol). that weather looks crazy and kind of scary lol. go you for having such a productive weekend!
Oh man it is so good. A young kid trying to be a rock journalist follows an up and coming band around. The hijinks of sex, drugs and rock and roll. Maybe it is an american culture thing? I felt so productive and finally got my house in order.
It sounds like you had a productive weekend! I love the anchor matt!
It was very productive, I had a lot to catch up on. It fits in with my other anchor stuff in there too. Thank you.
Jana @ Jana Says says
Almost Famous is such a great movie! I haven’t watched it in forever and I had no idea it was on Netflix!
I know! It has been a few years for me but it was so good! I have it on DVD but checked Netflix and it was on there. Bonus!
SMD @ Life According to Steph says
We could use some rain down here!
It was fast and furious, and not fun to drive in. You can have ours!
Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis says
Food prep looks good! I also do boiled eggs every Sunday for the week. Nice buys from Body Shop! I love their products.
They are so good and you can use them so many ways. I really wanted some candles from Bath and Body but the Body Shop is really good too.
I love all your anchor stuff! I’m a big fan of the nautical theme 🙂
Me too!! I tend to see them everywhere and buy them. 🙂
Wow dang, you got a lot of steps! My highest is usually like 11,000.
It was a really good workout but I was feeling it the next day.
Sounds like you had a great weekend! I love your anchor stuff! And The Body Shop for the win! I totally felt like the second picture of Seamus on Friday when I got home! Hope you have a great week!
It was a good shopping trip for sure. Haha! A good chill session is always nice.
Bri @ North Star Girl Lone Star World says
Great job on the steps! I wish it would rain here…but not during my commute ha. It really needs to cool down.
It rained this morning and it was horrible!! Hope it has cooled down by now!
Erin of TexErin-in-SydneyLand says
I love Almost Famous as well. Read this blog post about it…it’s great!: google – Kati Rose Almost Famous and you should find it.
That was a good article and just so true. I love that she has a quote from it on her business cards. That is a fan!
elle sees says
I told this to Steph on her AF post, but I once wrote to Cameron Crowe and he sent me a bunch of stuff, including a signed script of AF. I have a signed book of Elizabethtown too. AF is one of my FAVES.
That is so cool. When they sing Tiny Dancer…that was my favorite.
Kate @ Green Fashionista says
Sounds like a great weekend – and YAY for early birthday shopping! We had a bad storm like that yesterday while I was trying to get home. The visibility with the rain and wind was almost nothing, and we were all creeping along the highway. No fun!
It gets so scary when it comes down that hard and fast. No fun at all.
chelsea jacobs says
That body butter is my absolute favorite!
It smells so good!
Kimberlee @ I Have A Degree In This! says
Sounds like a productive weekend 🙂 Great little beauty haul!
I got a lot done but i got to rest too.
What a great weekend! Love your bunny sighting from your walk! You got some awesome goodies on your trip! And Seamus looks so comfy in that picture on the right! xo,
I love that they are all over where I live. So cute. Thank you, he wanted some extra snuggles and cuddles.
