In a nutshell, you could call this past weekend, perfect. I love it when you find that balance between staying busy/socializing and relaxing, especially when you can combine the two.
On Friday night Mike and I went to his friends house for a birthday get together. They had a great spread of food and we all hung out on their deck until the sun went down and we brought the conversation inside. I tried a new to me beer, Shock Top Honeycrisp Apple Wheat and really enjoyed it. I love hard cider, but there's just so much sugar and I feel really heavy drinking too many, that I'm glad I found a beer with a nice apple flavor that isn't too heavy or full of sugar.
Saturday morning was nice and lazy, but since it was a gorgeous day outside I headed over to Mike's to watch him do yard work. My apartment doesn't get much sun light, and the temperature on my phone read 65 degrees outside so I thought it would be necessary to bundle up. By the time I got to his house I was over heating. Luckily I'm slightly lazy and have yet to drop off the three bags of clothes in my trunk to Goodwill and I had some alternative tops to wear.
I wasn't totally useless, I did clean off his patio table and ran to the store to get food to grill, but I felt guilty watching him mow and clean out some rocks as I sat and soaked up the sun.
Sunday morning I got to the gym right after it opened and I loved it! There was hardly anyone there and I didn't have to wait around to use any weights or anything. I'm on to the third segment of the She Sweats 12 Week Program and so far it's proven to be a butt kicker and my favorite segment.
After the gym I got ready to meet my family at Grand Cafe for brunch. It's a small restaurant in South Minneapolis with a simple, yet absolutely delicious menu. Just as we were ready to wrap up and head outside to take our group Mother's Day picture, the sky's opened and we weren't able to get a good group picture this year.
Weekends like this make me so excited for Summer and all the warm weather activities to come!
