Oh, Weekend.

The first weekend of Spring didn't bring all the sunshine that it was supposed to, but my tank is full on a Monday morning and that's really all that I can ask. 

That's right, it rained again in Portland. No surprise to me, but as a fair-weather instagrammable-only hiker it made for another low-adventure high-homebody weekend. I was still productive, but not nearly as noteworthy as last weekend. 

Meal-prep happened, but the revised version. Reading happened, but only half the pages as last weekend. Workouts happened, but not the magical Friday night workout I bragged about last week. Headstands happened, but I'm not ready to share video with the world yet. 

The only thing better about this weekend than last weekend was the coffee and lunch date with mom on Saturday. Oh, and maybe scheduling another weekend of upcoming travel for April to see my dearest friend get married!

I have no travel plans for Spring Break, so I am looking forward to the great things that usually means for the work-week.

:: less morning traffic = morning almond milk latte's
:: less people at work = less distractions
:: you're on vacation = i get to see photos of you on vacation
:: less evening traffic = earlier workout classes
:: earlier workout classes = earlier dinner
:: earlier dinner = reading time to finish eleanor & park
:: reading time = relaxing time
:: relaxing time = sleepy time

Don't forget I have that massage scheduled for Thursday night! I'll be finding a terrible workout tonight and/or Tuesday so that I have plenty of sore muscles to stretch and press out.

What's up with you? Anything crazy planned this week?

Chill homebody weekends are sometimes the best. I'm glad you had a good one even though it wasn't as adventurous as the previous one.

I like your spring break thoughts, so very true!

yes to lighter traffic due to spring or summer breaks! it was spring break for us last week and there were less dillholes on the road which made driving better.

hey wanted to ask you -- what's the weather like in Portland during the summer? i may be venturing to your neck of the woods in July for a girls weekend and Portland is one of my picks (i'm also going to force them to go hiking/running/exercising with me because if i go to there, i can't NOT do these things!)

Oooh a massage. I have really been hinting to Jared that I'd like a gift certificate for one for my bday haha. It's been years since I've had a massage- enjoy it! :)

Still quality, in my book. No spring break happenings here either. And considering the high today is 39, that makes sense. Because it snowed on Friday and spring has totally not arrived to NNJ. I have high hopes for next week though...maybe.

It's always so nice when classes aren't in session and everything is less busy. Can you maybe share some of your full tank with me today? Because mind is beyond depleted...

I love when school is out for holidays/spring break/summer because it makes my life so much easier with traffic even though it doesn't effect me in any other way haha. Enjoy your week!

Brittany said...

I was so not prepared for the torrential downpour we got this weekend either. I'd still be proud of the weekend you had though! Cheers to tough workouts and massages :) Enjoy!!

Love your Spring Break list! I LOVE when school is out, it seriously cuts down on my time spent in traffic! It's always good to find little things like that to be thankful for! :)

Myra said...

R&R weekends are the best! I'll be studying all week and then we are off on Friday for a weekend adventure to Bohol (a little island around here)! We haven't been yet so looking forward to that!

I did spring break so though I'm not anywhere near you, I'm sure I made those in the NJ area happy for the same reasons! And pics coming next week! I hope your massage is fantabulous!!
