Gosh am I ever glad that I’m not the only woman who seriously needs to downsize her collections of beauty shenanigans! Let’s all go unshopping together. I actually kind of appreciate the challenge that unfolds when I run out of a “staple” makeup or hair care product since I can’t buy anything til I run out of ten of them. Now if only I could commit to the same thing with my scarf obsession…
My excuse is that scarves can make an outfit. I’m shamelessly admitting to wearing sweaters and shirts with holes in them and a scarf over to cover it up, so….vintage? Sure, why not. Shaves plenty of time off of my getting-ready routine when all I’ve gotta do is throw on a scarf!
Anywho, scarf and makeup talk aside, this weekend was filled with even more family, lots of coffee and food, gym time and relaxing by the fire. Scarves and fireplaces are probably two of the few reasons I love winter. Another reason? When I get a package that needs to be refridgerated, that’s not a problem on my doorstep. I pulling in the driveway and seeing surprises on my porch!
The lovely folks over at Perfect Foods Bars graciously sent me (and the winner of my giveaway!) a big box of goodies! I know ya’ll have heard that these are my favorite bars ever and that still rings true.
Just in time for classes to start! I don’t know what I’d do in my long classes, especially my night classes, without some kind of substantial food that I can eat without being obnoxious. If I could bring along my microwave and oven to class we’d be kosher, but unfortunately those tools aren’t really socially acceptable outside of the kitchen. They also sent me a new bar to try! Almond butter!
And the sweetest letter ever! I’ll tweet and blog all day about these bars. No problem.
What a wonderful way to start my day. Along with a gym session that won’t let me apply deodorant without pain. Yeah, it’s a problem. I really love my new gym because I get to play with new weights and machines I’ve never used before. I actually got “stuck” (if that’s what you wanna call it) in a leg machine and had to have one of the employees help me out. Embarrassing, but at least I know I can provide some entertainment for my fellow gym-goers and my Dad, who usually comes to the gym too. Speaking of gym time, my brother has been torching his calories and entertaining us with hoola hooping on the Wii.
Clearly better than my means of entertaining while working out, right?
Between the good company, good exercise, good food and exciting mail this weekend, I haven’t really had a chance to just sit and relax, which is why today will be spent on my booty (and lastnight was spent on my booty as well, by the fire!) I’m going to finish fixing up my lunch and get into the newest issues of Glamour and Whole Living. Martha Stewart is my homegirl.
Premade tofu smeared with cream cheese and seasonings is probably one of the laziest things I could think of as my lunch, alongside some other premade things. Do I at least get credit for making my own salad and dressing?
Hope you all enjoy your day! Later tonight I’m off to my cousin’s Birthday celebration and enjoying my last few days of winter break.
Who did you spend the weekend with?
What’s your favorite way to exercise without a gym?
Peace and love!
