A Not So Eventful Weekend

Posted: September 20, 2009 at 10:28 pm

This weekend was one of the only downtime weekends we have coming up and I fully enjoyed it. I spent the time getting back on track with my workouts through a good spin session yesterday and a pumped up weights session today. I watched some good SEC football - wishing Florida lost but happy my Dawgs won. I did a lot of reading as well. I finished the Sophie Kinsella book Twenties Girl which I really, really enjoyed after getting into it. I even cried at the end even though it is a completely silly storyline! I recommend the book though. Now I am 1/3 into the final Harry Potter. I'm excited to see what happens - don't spoil it for me! The rest of the time was spent relaxing, waxing, and enjoying a dinner out with the hubs. I enjoyed some steamed shrimp and vegetables at a favorite Chinese restaurant last night and it was nice. Although I will admit to hankering for some delicious sushi rolls that I will have to wait a bit longer for. 'Twas a nice, chill weekend. The last for awhile. Here is what is going on all the upcoming weekends up until my show:

  • Sep 26 = friend's baby shower I am helping throw
  • Oct 3 = going to watch a SNBF show to see what my show will be like
  • Oct 8-11 = go to Florida with friends
  • Oct 17 = ONE weekend with NO plans! although Peter already has an idea he wants to do
  • Oct 24 = Makenzie's 1st Birthday party
  • Oct 31 = UGA vs Florida game (biggest game of the season) & M's "1st" Halloween
  • Nov 7 = SHOW DAY!!!!
Looking at that it is hitting me that my show will be here in the blink of an eye. Wow! Gotta stay focused!!! And now I'll wrap-up this post with the weekend's fitness wrap 😉
