how often can you say that you leisurely enjoyed a saturday exactly how you wanted to spend it? with so many things to do and places to be, it’s a rarity to have the majority of an entire day to yourself. last weekend, stephen was studying non-stop for the CPA so he was out of commission, plus we got most of our chores around the house done friday night and saturday morning. and after that – it was my choice how to spend my saturday!
my saturday included donuts, a warm yin yoga class, manicure and pedicure with wine, a stop for fresh flowers, and starting a new book. what does your dream saturday consist of and what’s stopping you from carving out the time for yourself every once in a while?
first, we started with a stop at davinci’s donuts for yummy treats and coffee. they are mini donuts and basically don’t even count. I finally crossed fruity pebble donut off my list and it did not disappoint. then again, neither did the oreo, raspberry cheesecake, m&m, or french toast donuts.
after breakfast, stephen started studying and I left for a warm yin yoga class, focused on stretching. I went to two fast paced flow classes last week and my back has been really uncomfortable. this class was super slow paced and nurturing. plus I didn’t even break a sweat which made going for a mani and pedi much more enjoyable.
my nail salon is better than yours… wine, please and thank you. I went with a warm and shiny nude on my fingers and my standby red on my toes. I call it the “season neutral” look.
after my nail appointment, I popped in the grocery store and picked up some gorgeous blue hydrangeas. if only they would’ve had the new reese witherspoon southern living out already.
finally I returned home and started lena dunham’s book on the couch. stephen took a break from studying and I cooked zucchini turkey bolognese for dinner. then I promptly returned to reading. happy saturday, however you choose to spend it!
