Weekend Recap

What’s up with these Tuesday “Weekend Recaps?” I promise I’m not taking off every Monday as a “weekend!” Haha! I had a good excuse this week, thanks to Labor Day yesterday! šŸ˜‰ I hope you had a fabulous long weekend!

I cannot believe this fall weather already! Maybe I’m in denial, but I’m not ready to pull out boots yet. Although, I love fall clothing!! šŸ™‚ Julien fixed up a cozy fire Saturday night, and I’m totally convinced my next place has to have a fireplace! So relaxing and well worth the chilly evening. Before relaxing that evening, we spent some time in Middleburg and started prepping the kitchen island for his flipper house. SO fun!!! It’s going to look BEAUTIFUL when it’s fixed up!!!

weekend recap

Today starts my work week and so far I’m on a great start! Honestly, I have been struggling with my workout routine. Once something throws off my schedule, it’s hard to get back into it. It could be from being sick or going away on vacation or the fact that we don’t have to wear a bathing suit for another year… Lol! I’m not the only one, right? After celebrating Labor Day yesterday, I realized today was a great start to get back into my routine. Going from five to one day a week at the gym has already proved why I need to pick back up my strength training. If you are in need of a motivator, let’s encourage one another! šŸ™‚

Speaking of Labor Day and working out, as you can see below, I had a fabulous helper yesterday making dessert. šŸ™‚ If you haven’t made oatmeal fruit bars before, it’s delcious!!! One of the reasons that got my bootay to the gym today. šŸ˜‰ Also, on a more personal note, I got my teeth “dimples” removed today! This might seem like a weird thought, but sometimes teeth form little dimples, and if you like red wine or coffee, those little “dimples” become very noticeable. Thanks to my great dentist, he smoothed my teeth, and now I can smile confidently after a glass of wine. šŸ˜‰ Lol!

weekend recap

This blogging week is short, but I’m excited to share the first engagement session and wedding of the fall season! Great way to kick off the start to the craziness!
