1.) Savings at the grocery store always make me giddy. This week’s bill went from:
With the store savings and a coupon I had! Almost 40% off the bill – woohoo!
2.) On Saturday, I got a manicure/pedicure with a new-to-me color that I am LOVING. The place I go to has a great deal for $35 for both, and I love for my nails to look good! The color is OPI Pamplona Purple and it is a little lighter than it looks in the photo below.
3.) It rained for a lot of Saturday night/all day yesterday, so I got to use my new clear bubble umbrella for the first time this weekend, and it really is the best. It makes the rain way less dreadful, and keeps both me and my purse both dry! It’s kind of crazy how much I didn’t mind going out in the rain yesterday because of it.
4.) I got two awesome workouts on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday I did a 5.25 mile run outside in about 50 minutes, and then I biked the same distance back home. On Sunday, I did 45 mins of hill walking on the treadmill (3.8 mph with incline up to 10.0) and then a full body strength training workout. I’ve started LOVING powerwalking on an incline as cross-training, and it burns almost as many calories as running does (~400 in the 45 mins)!
5.) One night out and one night in – my ideal weekend. Friday night I was exhausted so I came home, cleaned my whole apartment and then laid down on the couch and watched Submarine on Netflix. It was a quirky independent film that was quite entertaining and funny, and I’d recommend it if you’re looking for something new to watch. Saturday night I went out for dinner and drinks with some friends, and it was a blast. Perfect combo!
6.) And the most exciting highlight from the weekend – I got a NEW BIKE!!
I have a hybrid bike that I got just about two years ago, but I really wanted to get a road bike and have been thinking about it for quite some time. On Saturday I went to a vintage bike market to see what they had, and my eyes were immediately draw to this bike. I rode it around the parking lot and was surprised at how different it feels from my hybrid – leaning forward to grab the handle bars feels SO awkward at first! It’s definitely going to take some getting used to, but I am SO excited to own a bike I love so much!
And that’s all I got!
