Weekend Update

First, can I just say that I wrote almost this entire post and it just disappeared. Gone. Poof.

Let's hope it doesn't happen again.

This weekend was pretty wonderful if I do say so myself. Nothing special happened, I just felt content, relaxed, at peace, etc. Monday is the last official day of classes and it is rather bittersweet. I am so excited about graduating, but I have really enjoyed hanging out with all of the people in my classes the past two years and making new friends. Not everyone is graduating, so when I start Graduate School in the Fall semester, I will still have some familiar faces!

On Friday, we had dinner with some friends and it was nice and relaxing. We went to Longhorn's Steakhouse and I had the Grilled Rainbow Trout with steamed veggies and a side salad. It was surprisingly good!

On Saturday, DH and I slept in, then we spent the day cleaning, doing laundry, and washing dishes. We treated ourself in the afternoon with our first Yoforia trip of the summer.

16 oz Cup: Cheescake, Key Lime Pie, Dark Chocolate Flavors with Kiwi, Strawberries, Granola & Chocolate Chips

It was good, but it wasn't as good as I remember it...that's usually the case isn't it?

We went to the grocery store and decided to have Turkey Burgers and Homemade Guacamole with Tortilla chips for dinner.

Tortilla Chips with Homemade Guacamole
I used my Chunky Guacamole recipe (minus the peppers), but I blended the avocados and fresh tomatoes together, hence the color and texture.

It was so nice to relax, eat a good homemade meal, and watch movies on Netflix with DH and the pups.

Sunday was spent working on study guides, papers, and teaching group fitness classes. I taught Cycle & Sculpt for an hour, then I taught a Kick & Sculpt class for about an hour.

Last Thursday was our last RIPPED class of the semester (with the exception of the extended schedule classes) and one of the participants gave me this beautiful surprise:

I am trying to keep it alive until this weekend when I can take it to my mother-in-law and she can plant it/keep it alive better than I can. But, it's already drooping...I am watering it and I put it in the sunlight/window...any suggestions? My thumb is more of a brown color instead of green...

What did you do this weekend? Any special events?


  1. i'm jealous of what sounds like a really relaxing weekend! mine was filled and busy. i think next saturday i deserve a mid-day froyo trip!

    1. I think you deserve one too! :) This Saturday will be filled with me studying until my eyes bleed, unfortunately, lol

  2. Aw, sorry that the whole post just went POOF. I hate when that happens!

    That froyo looks so good! I've never gotten kiwi as a froyo topping, but I'll have to try that next time.

    1. I know, it was so weird because it's never happened before. My mom always had kiwi in the house when I was little, so it's definitely one of my favorites ;)
