Good morning and happy Monday! Today has started off wonderfully so far (can you believe I am saying that before 10am on a Monday!?) but first…
This weekend was amazing. It was so nice to stay put and have time to relax! Friday after work I met up with some friends for drinks, and then went to see Louis CK (a comedian) at the Warner Theater. Wil got free tickets to the show and sad story, they did not allow any photos inside, but let me assure you, he was HYSTERICAL. That was actually my first time ever seeing live comedy which is shocking because I love watching it on TV – and it was just awesome. love love love.
Saturday I made a nice little breakfast for Wil and I.
Sweet Potato Hash with eggs and toast. My newest secret for sweet potato hash is that I chop up the potatoes and then put them in water in the microwave for 3-5 minutes before adding them to the pan with peppers and onions. It speeds up the process SO much and make it only take about 10 minutes, rather than 25-30 if you don’t pre-cook the taters. Eaten outside on the balcony = perfection.
Shopping, church, and wigs filled up the rest of my weekend.
Oh, and Chuck E. Cheese. For real. Did you know they now have beer and wine (that comes out of the wall – scary) there? I think it’s so parents can tolerate taking their children there and not want to leave before they sit down. It made it MUCH more tolerable.
Then, this morning, I woke up early for free outdoor yoga! I only got to do this one other time even though it is pretty much right outside my apartment. Just when 6:45 on Monday rolls around, my bed is so much more temping that getting up. But today was the last day, and they happened to be giving out free fleeces to the first few people to arrive, plus yoga mat bags. You best believe I was literally the first person there (I got there at 6:45) and sat outside by myself in the dark for 10-15 minutes before anyone else came. But, i got one of three free fleeces, so it was totally worth it.
After yoga, which was mostly stretching and didn’t cause me to break a sweat at all, I went back inside to get ready for work and throw together an amazing yogurt bowl – best one in a while.
Nonfat Greek Yogurt, Canned Pumpkin, Rolled Oats, Raspberries, Chia Seeds, and Sliced Almonds. I toyed with the idea of adding the last of that amazing granola and some nut butter, but I decided this was enough.
Funny because after I put together this beautiful bowl, I decided I wasn’t hungry enough to eat it yet, so I transported it sloppily into a tupperware for transport.
Not nearly as pretty.
Come back after lunch for another exciting giveaway!
What was the highlight of your weekend?
Do you like to wear wigs? I love ‘em. Any excuse I can think of to wear one and I will. That was a costume party at Chuck E. Cheese, by the way, so I didn’t look like a total weirdo. 🙂
