Greetings friends! Welcome to Monday. Please keep all eyes and mouths shut until coffee mugs are filled and in the upright and locked position. We are now ready for takeoff.
Oh yes, my heart-felt hatred for Mondays appears on this blog every week, so I may as well keep up with appearances. In the spirit of staying positive though, that means we are 4 more days closer to the weekend!
So let’s talk about weekends while we’re at it. I’m sure you’re ready to see all the flowers, boxes of chocolate, and overpriced crab cakes I had for Valentine’s Day. No no my friends. Instead you get this.
I couldn’t decide if I was more psychedelic or Harry Potter-esque so I opted for half a peace sign/ I’ll pretend this is a wand pose. Nailed it.
No, instead I spent my Valentine’s Day settled on in with some sushi, a glass of wine, and quality time with MJ. We even took some test shots for when we open our own nail salon/sushi bar. Sounds sanitary, right?
I’m honestly not that big on flowers or chocolate unless it comes with copious amounts of peanut butter. Save your money honey and buy me a dozen jars of extra chunky instead of roses. Which is why my true valentine knows just what to get me.
Papa John, my good ol’ Daddy-o got me my favorite bottle of vino and a heart of gold. Since I’m pretty sure peanut butter is running through my veins, this is an accurate representation of what my heart actually looks like.
Saturday brought more snow with it. Because we really didn’t get enough on Thursday and Friday with that measly foot and a half. You’ve made your point Winter. You can go home now.
I did manage to get my workout in since the only exercise I did on Friday was trying to pick up rice with chopsticks. Which I might add is pretty exhausting.
Go ahead, try it. And tell me you don’t break a sweat in the process. Instead I knocked out some Insanity followed by my second third oh who’s counting anyway?! attempt at the plank a day challenge. There are a lot of planks involved in Insanity and I feel like….well actually I know my form is awful. I’ve decided to focus on practicing the correct form for both elbow and full planks which might help take ‘Insanity’ down to just a ‘cray-cray’ status.
I also took this snowy day to paint my nails rather than shell out some extra bucks for an actual manicure. Which reminds me, for any girl who has ever been to a nail salon I assure you this video is an accurate and hilarious depiction of what occurs.
I decided to still go with the Valentine’s theme and even added a little white heart to the ring finger. I took a picture of my right hand since the heart on my left hand looked as though a newborn infant painted it. Actually a baby probably could have done a better job. Either way, this paint is coming off in about 5 minutes any way since 9 out of 10 nails are already chipped. Reason # 36 why I don’t paint my nails.
Sunday started with none other than some pancakes. 2 ingredient ones to be exact. While they taste nothing like they came out of Aunt Jemima’s kitchen, they did cure my never ending craving for Sunday morning pancakes.
Followed up with some retail therapy and snapping Harry Potter sunglasses images with Hannah this concluded my real Sunday festivities.
Make it a great day!
Who do you think I look more like?
Do anything fun this weekend?
