Welcome to a new round of this flipping cool Monday party! Head over to lovely Katie at healthydivaeats.com and check out more Marvelousity!
Monday usually is kind of a weekend recap which I love. This one will be a boring one, as I had no plans at all. And you know what? I loved it. We had a crazy December with so many dinnerparties, get-togethers, drinks out and celebrations, we decided to take it really slow in January. And I felt weak and umotivated, I think the busy week knocked me off and I surely overdid once again with workouts. So Friday night (Sandro was at the movies) was chilling along with the couch, a movie, a light and yummy dinner, iPad and knitting.
Saturday morning a shorter than normal Cardio/TRX workout happened. Followed by – guess what – Pancakes. Did I mention that I am obsessed by my pancakes lately? I did. Ok, sorry.
Saturday afternoon consisted of sipping tea and reading magazines/newspaper in our fave coffeplace –
– walking at the lake –
– having a snack –
– grocery shopping and sending off Foodie Penpal stuff –
– standing and staring at my beauties –
trying our new blender for hummus –
– and finally sitting down for more healthy food, talks and movies –
– having dessert and tea.
I felt a bit guilty that I was so burnt out all weekend. Especially for Sandro since I knew he was thinking about going out for dinner with me.
‘Honey, I am sorry I am so boring this weekend. – ‘Naah. You just need a rest. I’ll rest with you.’
‘Is it very bad to spend the weekend with such a boring person like me?’ – ‘Well, you obviously got the right man. I am boring too. Let’s be boring.’
‘I am a boring girlfriend right?’ – ‘Not boring. Relaxed. I like it.’
I love this man.
Sunday morning I slept in. Till 9am. And then I took my book and started to read while still lying in bed. Sandro got up and went for a run, I stayed in bed. Did you read this? SANDRO WENT FOR A RUN AND I STAYED IN BED. I think that never happened ever before and it didn’t happen because I was sick or depressed, no, I just loved to rest some more and to stay in bed as long as I want to with my book because I can and because I want and because it’s Sunday. It was BEAUTIFUL especially after my man brought me some needed stuff near me.
We actually got active later on with something we wanted to do since weeks – iceskating!!! It was so freaking cold, but it was SO MUCH FUN. And it totally woke me up 🙂
We spent quite some time in the kitchen (I did my meal prep) and created this. A bomb exploded and some housebreakers were looking for gold. Ah, no, Sandro and me were cooking. I know we have a problem. But believe me, after cleaning up, it looks superclean again. But we just can’t stay organized while cooking!! Anyone else has this problem?? Please, anyone!!! :
And since Januar 13th is the day when my Dad passed – 12 years ago, I was thinking of him and missing him even more.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. If you have a rough week ahead I send you loads of positive power and energy!!
