Fall finally feels upon us… or at least me. It’s finally supposed to get chilly tonight. Woohoo! Though I’m happy for sweaters and boots, I’m glad this weekend stayed relatively warm. I was busy busy busy!
I spent most of the day Friday sanding and painting furniture, which was exhausting. Oh, did I mention I had an extremely hilly 3.5-mile run before even starting on the furniture? You better believe I was happy for this crock pot meal. And the beer. Okay, I was especially happy for the beer.
Meal: Clean Eating’s tamale pie, Beer: Warsteiner Oktoberfest
I was just as busy Saturday at my Habitat for Humanity build. Lunch was graciously provided, but turkey/ham sandwiches don’t do much for a girl with a veg pledge. Lucky for me there were leftover whole wheat bagels from breakfast.
I definitely burned those carbs!
When I finished my build and Kevin returned from class (all-day grad school session), we headed out to meet friends for a few drinks. To my dismay, I participated in zero costume festivities. I don’t think I would have been able to keep my eyes open too long anyway.
Sunday was a bit more relaxed. I put the finishing touches on the furniture, headed to church, and baked some bread. Thank goodness for rest days!
The bread tasted fan-friggin-tastic. I followed Katie’s recipe, but I used 1/3 cup of maple syrup instead of 1/2 cup, and I used about 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips. (Oh gosh… those gooey, melty, chips… I may have had a little tooooo much of them yesterday.)
That’s my weekend in a
blog post nutshell.
- Did you try any new recipes over the weekend?
- Ever been too exhausted to party? *Side note: getting old ain’t easy. ha
