This weekend I...
...Went out on Friday afternoon with a bunch of my co-workers to say goodbye to someone who was leaving, and had maybe a tinge more fun than I expected - I realized at 10 that I hadn't eaten dinner! If you know me, you know that I do NOT skip meals hahaha. We were too busy laughing and gossiping and dancing and whatnot ;) I had a ton of fun but I had a bit of a rough start Saturday morning - I guess that's why I usually spend my Friday nights falling asleep on the couch while trying to watch a movie!
...Did a lot of work around the house. We still had all of our Christmas stuff up, so I got all of that and our tree packed away and down three and a half flights of stairs to our storage closet. We also got a freaking gigantic mirror delivered on Saturday that I've had on my wishlist since this summer so I had to clean/reorganize our bedroom to make room for that. With all of the stairs in our place I counted those two activities as my cardio for the day, my thighs were definitely feeling the burn!
...Had my sister's family over for dinner and made this bolognese from SkinnyTaste, which let me say is freaking amazing! We're going to have leftovers for the next year or so, so hopefully I keep loving it hahaha. We also made this ricotta dip I shared on Instagram, which is basically whipped ricotta cheese, olive oil, and fresh herbs - so good!! I left out a couple of Christmas toys that my niece loved the last time she was over, and it was so cute watching her run laps around my couch with a jingle bell in hand.
...Lit our first fire in our fireplace! Sure, we only moved in a freaking year ago, but we just got it swept out and inspected so we decided to pop open a bottle of wine and light a fire! And when I say "light a fire" I really mean "use a lighter on a log bag" - I may have been a Girl Scout for ten years but building a fire was never a skill I acquired!!
I hope you had a good one!
