Guys. I am 30 years. Can you believe that!? Last Friday was way more fun since I was celebrating the new decade and prepping for a weekend filled of surprise festivities. This Friday is just, well, boring.
Once the weather gets nice, I feel like everyone is super motivated to do everything they said they were going to all winter. Whether it's house projects or self projects, it's a time for productivity. And let me tell you, that's exactly how my week was.
We fenced in the yard last Friday and it's been amazing to let the dogs run free around the yard. The exercise plus the fresh air leaves them exhausted at night, which is really a win for us fur parents. BUT, the fence along the back that the neighbors put in doesn't quite hit the ground.
Because our bushes in the back are so over grown, I didn't realize there was a pretty large hole in one section of their fence, and Elphie got out. For about 30 minutes. And B and I ran around the neighborhood like maniacs trying to find her.
I said, "the bushes come down," and B said, "the bushes stay because I like foliage and privacy." And in true B vs M fashion I won.
I came home to this beautiful pile of crap and B in the backyard saying, "You were right. They needed to come down."
When he is on a productive kick I just let him go. So all week he took breaks from his work day to trim a few more, cut a few more, and make this pile bigger. And let me tell you. It makes our large yard look even bigger!
In addition to that, I started working out again with the Tone It Up girls. Their workouts are quick but SO difficult, and I've already seen the scale dip a bit. I strayed a bit towards the end of this week, but am looking forward to grocery shopping and Week 2!
Looking for a little motivation? Try the Mermaid workout. Don't let this pic fool ya, that thing was SO hard!
In addition to the insane workouts, the Facebook group has been amazing. I've "met" so many people in the short time I've been in the group, and was thankful enough to meet one of them in person this week! Hi Liz :)
And when you meet for 3 glasses of white, head home to your respective houses and have 2 glass of red without realizing the other person did the same, you know you've found a friend for life. You also know you're screwed because you wake up late for work when you're running an early morning meeting and your whole day is thrown off. But it was so worth it.
This weekend and next weekend B and I have zero plans. ZERO! Do you hear that?! The calendar is completely open and free. And in true old person fashion, I am happy to announce that I'm excited for yard work, cleaning my house, grocery shopping, and spending some alone time with my man.
Ya know, because I'm 30 now. And that's what 30-year-olds do. They do housework.
What are your plans for the weekend?
