Warning: this post is going to be all over the place. You have been warned.
So basically my weekend was spent like that ^. Coffee mug in hand, book in lap and crazy dog running around. My husband and I drove to Austin to spend the weekend with his family and it was so relaxing and nice. Most of the weekend was spent in pajamas or a swimsuit, so it was a win-win. Because Texas weather is crazy, one day it was in the 90s and the next day it was raining and in the 60s. The pool was heated, so it was such a treat to get to swim (with the pup too!) and spend time with R’s side of the family. I read Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg and loved it. It was extremely motivating and inspirational. I recommend it to all you entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs.
I discovered Bark Thins. Dark chocolate with sea salt and pretzel. They call it “snacking chocolate” so somehow I justify eating my weight in dark chocolate as just a “snack”. That last piece was enjoyed al desko. <– see what I did there?
I also reacquainted myself with chai tea lattes. Holy yum. The above iced chai was from Whole Foods with almond milk and I would’ve been happy to swim in it. Yep, that good. I followed it up with a hot chai tea latte this weekend (temps below 70 call for it!) and I am sipping a homemade one in bed as we speak (err….type).
I received these Victoria Secret Sport yoga pants and sports bra from Influenster. I was thrilled to find out I was included in this program as I generally go to 3 yoga classes per week and love to switch things up!
The sports bra is really cute, but I’m not sure I can get behind an underwired sports bra…it felt a little weird. I wasn’t a fan of it in yoga class this morning, but perhaps it would be better for a run? We shall see. The yoga pants are PERFECT. They wick away sweat, are a really nice material, fit perfectly and look really awesome on. I tried to snap a photo of me in them post-yoga, but nobody wants to see that…
Last week I made my own marinara for the first time! I used this recipe and used fresh basil from our Tower Garden (more on that later). Oh and tonight I made this but subbed plain Greek yogurt for heavy cream. I believe it will be a new weekly favorite of ours.
And with that, I’m out. I’ve got some zzzzz’s to catch.
