Happy Monday! I’m coming at you all after TWO whole days off, so basically I feel like a million bucks. I’m also at home and in the office all week, so I’m pretty pumped.
Let’s back up to Friday and take a look at my weekend! I snuck out of work early on Friday so I could get my house cleaned and get my life back together. I feel like I can’t relax until I have a clean house, so I felt so much better afterwards and the house looked great.
I also took my car to get washed since it had been basically sitting in a parking garage for three weeks while I was out of town. Friday evening, my friend’s daughter came over for some singing lessons. I’m helping her learn some songs and improve her singing and her mom is paying me in wine. It also gives me a great excuse to play more piano than usual!
After our lesson was over, I cracked open my payment and Riley came home with pizza.
We spent the evening on the couch and I caught up on all the tv shows I’d missed.
Saturday morning start out early. It seems I can’t sleep in past 7 AM, but it’s all good because I had crazy motivation. I took Bella for a walk, then hit the gym for a run and some leg work. After my workout, I grabbed a banana nut bread smoothie from JuiceFix. It had banana, walnuts, spinach, agave, and almond milk. It was so good and I totally want to recreate it at home.
I ran some errands the rest of the morning, then made myself a big taco salad. I kept things vegan with portabello and faux beef crumbles, and used salsa and cashew “cheese” sauce as my toppings.
I hit a wall Saturday afternoon and decided I needed to crawl into bed for a nap. Coco came with me and we passed out for a little while to recoup. She looks so serious haha.
The rest of Saturday was much more chill and Riley and I just hung out at the house, watching tv and eating leftovers. It was a wild, crazy Saturday night.
Sunday was such a fun day! Riley and I had the day off together and started out with a 3.75 mile hike to Lake Matoaka.
I ran the same trails last weekend, but it was nice to slow it down and just enjoy a more leisurely pace. After showering, we hit up the Williamsburg Winery for a tasting.
They had just released a lot of their new reserve wines, so we tasted them all!
They were so good and Riley and I had a blast. I love that this place is 5 minutes from our house and I hope we can make it over there more often. They have a little cafe on the property and a really cute shop as well. I almost added this to our bar area at the house.
I took another super long nap after we got back from the tasting and I’m not at all sorry about it. Ha! This is what happens when I drink wine in the middle of the day. Once I woke up, football was in full swing in our house and I read and caught up on blog reading while Riley watched sports. We rounded out our evening with steak salads- regular steak for Riley, portabello steak for me.
Now I’m back at work today! I’m so pumped to stay in town all week long. Hopefully I can make it to my yoga studio, since they haven’t seen me in almost a month. Whoops! Have a great Monday and I’ll catch you guys later!
What was the highlight of your weekend?
Do you have any wineries where you live?
