My Weekend

October 23, 2011

This weekend has been very kind to me. It’s been the perfect mix of relaxation and activity with a side of family and friends.

Friday I met up with Amanda, Marg, and Kim at Merlot 2 Masterpiece. It was lovely to meet some of the #htownbloggers I’d never met before and catch up with Kim who I’d met once at a 5k.

We had wine and painted the “Cherry Blossom Lovers.” I find painting relaxing and therapeutic. and the wine helps my creative side come out Winking smile The instructor was wonderful and the atmosphere was fun. I’m actually quite proud at how my painting came out.

Saturday I meandered around the house, slept in, had tone it up protein pancakes, cleaned and made a batch of juice. I find that juicing is honestly quite a pain. The process of actually juicing and cleaning the juicer is time consuming and not a small task, so I prefer to make it in a batch and that makes it worth it.


In the juice:

  • 2 red apples
  • 2 green apples
  • 1 orange
  • 5 carrots
  • 1/2 bag spinach
  • 1 bundle of red grapes



Saturday night I went to my sister Beth’s play. She is a stage manager at a local college. She’s been doing theatre for years and now she’s studying it in college. I’m so proud of her for working so hard and following her passions.


The play was called “The Haunting of Hill House.” It was really good and kind of scary! After the show my sister showed me around the stage and the backstage area. I’d never gotten to see the behind the scenes and it was really cool to see the work that goes into building the stage, the prop set up, and the costume dressing rooms.

Today I went on a 14-mile long run, attended a friends baby shower and got a much needed pedicure. Life is good!


What have you done this weekend?
