Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

the one where i procrastinated a lot, and a look ahead!

Hello lovelies!

I hope you all had a great weekend full of good memories that will keep you positive on the start to another long work week.

This is the end of the government fiscal year, so it’s crazy in my office right now.

I’m already ready for Friday!

For that reason- let’s reminisce a little. smile

My weekend was really nice.

OU was on a bye this week, which was sort of a nice break for a weekend.

It allowed me to clean the house and do absolutely NONE of the things I had on my list of things to do when the bye week came.

Oops! smile

Friday night was uneventful because Will had to work Saturday morning. Just hung out and watched some TV.

Saturday I got up early and saw Will off.

I went to the gym and did a leg circuit.

I love circuit training! I was soaked by the time I was done.

Afterward, I cleaned my house thoroughly.

Well… except not.

It’s getting cooler and we no longer need the fans on all the time.

When I turned them off, I noticed a layer of dust around the blade edges.

But by then I was already done cleaning.

So I turned the fans back on.

We’ll do that next weekend.

(Maybe I should have saved this secret for one of my confession posts? smile )

Afterward, I did something pretty cool.

But I’m not going to share it today.

Remember how I said I have had something on my heart?
Well, I took the bull by the horns.

More to come on that later, though.

Afterward, Will was home and we took a little nap, and by then it was nearly 4!

The girls in my life group decided to go out to dinner Saturday night. I looked forward to it all week!

So here’s the second confession of this post, ever since we got back from Kuwait… oh you know FIVE years ago, we haven’t really connected with a solid group of friends.

(Because I had my sister, and um, what else do you need? Haha)

Sure we have work friends we like a lot, and friends that do not live nearby we often talk to, but in terms of a solid group that live nearby and share our love of Christ and are there to build us up? We didn’t have that.

And I used to think that was okay. However, our pastor has been preaching on friendship lately, and it’s been blowing me away.

Not only that, but the last couple months of being connected in a life group has totally opened our eyes on all the blessings we were missing!

I am so thankful for this group of ladies.

Life group girls!

God is so good!

We went to Mama Rojas on Lake Hefner. It was so beautiful!

Dinner on the lake

I got the veggie fajitas and enjoyed good company. We laughed a lot!

I got home and watched the last of the Texas-K State game with Will, and then it was bedtime!

Yesterday was church, the gym, and then a fun day out with my sister!

We went to Café do Brasil for a late brunch. We had heard good things about it, plus they have a good vegetarian menu.

The food was yummy! I wish I would have taken a picture of it to share.

Fail.

But I did get a picture of the creepy mural in the bathroom.

Why do I feel like he’s watching you “go?”

This is a mural in he bathroom. Why do I feel like he's watching people pee?

Afterward, we took a walk around Midtown and ended up at Coffee Slingers. I got a peppermint tea, and P got coffee.

We sat and chatted and enjoyed the break.

We walked back, headed home, and wow it was nearly 4!

Where did my day go!? I still had to prep food, do laundry, edit a video…

Yeah, not my best afternoon.

And no, it all didn’t get done.

Eh, it happens… at least that’s what I’m telling myself so I stop being neurotic.

Here’s a look at what we will be chatting about this week:

-We wrap up our protein series high as a kite

-Another at-home football inspired workout drill to wrap up our September series!

-A sweet (and surprising!) treat

-How to travel healthy

-and (hopefully!) insights into why we can’t be perfect

So check in this week. I look forward to our chats!
