A Weekend of My Own!

C and Hubster went camping for the weekend (more about their adventure tomorrow), so that means I had an entire weekend ALL. TO. MYSELF.

I was pretty excited, ya’ll.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my boys more than anything in the world, but it’s always nice to have time alone.

After getting all of the cleaning out of the way for the weekend, I had a massage.  (Thanks to my fabulous in-laws for that birthday present!)  It was immensely relaxing.  Like, I can’t even describe it.  It was fantastic.  Then I went to get a nonfat, no-whip, raspberry mocha frapp from Starbucks.  It’s my fav.

Post massage with my fav Sbux = Bliss

I scrambled home to get back in time for some family to visit me.  My aunts and uncles came to visit.  I was able to show off our new, bigger place and then we went out to dinner.  It was a great time and I’m so blessed to have such wonderful family. :)

On my way home, I had to stop for three different types of animals to cross the road in front of me on campus!

First, I had to stop for a little family of turkeys.  Less than a half-mile later, there were a bunch of geese in the middle of the road.

When I turned onto our road, a mama deer and her two babies crossed the road in front of me!

I enjoyed some Panera soup, drank some wine and cut my coupons.  The next morning, I went for a 4.2-mile run at a pace that was slightly better than my 5k pace last October!  It was awesome, but I found out I need new running shoes.  Blisters = ouch. **Note: If you’re squeamish, don’t scroll down to the picture of the ginormous, deep blisters I got.

Broccoli Cheddar Soup – YUM!

RIP Nikes. :(

So painful.

I ran errands – alone, on my own timeline. 😉  I watched a “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” marathon on tv.  I read.  I blogged.  I ate sushi.  I slept.  I got a haircut.

It was a fantastic weekend by myself.  :)

What are your favorite things to do when you’re alone?

    A whole weekend??! So jealous :)
    I have a day here & there to myself but an entire weekend with a massage, sleep, good TV, running… sounds amazing!
    So glad that you were able to enjoy it & take time for yourself!
