Hey, friends! I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was nice and quiet over here, which I really needed. Riley was gone all weekend, but he comes home today! He was in New Orleans visiting his brother and is flying home this morning. Three nights alone in the house was weird, not gonna lie. It seems I can spend plenty of nights alone in hotel rooms, but in my own house? Not so much.
I took advantage of the quiet time, though, and caught up on sleep and relaxation. Friday evening was spent with some friends. I didn’t take any pictures, but I went to a friend’s house for dinner and games. It was a nice way to kick off the weekend!
Saturday morning I was up with the sun, per usual. I can’t seem to sleep in, even if I want to.
I headed over to Colonial Williamsburg to get in an early run before all the tourists descended on the area.
It was super cold! Like, way too cold for me to enjoy running. I made it a mile before giving up and going to the gym instead. If it’s not between 60-75 degrees outside, I’ll be running indoors.
The rest of Saturday was spent running errands and doing some shopping. I found out my parents are coming to our house for Thanksgiving so I had some planning to do! This is the first time I’ve been able to host a holiday, so I’m pretty excited about it. I even bought a 12 pound turkey, which is way more than we need for 4 people, but it’s fine.
Sunday was pretty uneventful. I did some grocery shopping, but otherwise just hung out at home all day. It was barely warm enough to have the windows open, so I let some of the breeze in, took a nap, watched some football, and just vegged out.
It was the best! I got caught up on some of my TV shows, snuggled with the pets, and just enjoyed not having to be anywhere.
Now I’m off to work for the next two days, then I’m on Thanksgiving break! I seriously can’t wait to have 5 days off. I’ve been resisting the urge to break out my Christmas decorations (despite all the IG posts I’m seeing!). This Friday, though, will definitely be decorating day.
Have a great start to the week!
Did you do anything exciting this weekend?
