Sorry for the late post today – I screwed something up with my auto-scheduler! Better late than never though, right?
Hi friends! How was your week?
Fabio left for his bachelor party trip to Tampa, FL this morning, and he’ll be spending the long weekend with his friends at the Yankees’ spring training baseball game. Or is it games? I’m not really sure how that all works, TBH. Oh well.
While he’s away I have some fun plans the weekend, one of which includes picking up my girls’ bridesmaid dresses from Bella Bridesmaids. Some of the girls got their dresses shipped to them directly, but a few got them sent to the store in D.C. so I’m going with my mom on Saturday to pick them up.
Hana sent me this picture when her dress arrived at her office yesterday. 🙂
I can’t wait to see how all the dresses look together, especially since we had to guess by holding up a similar skirt when we were in the store.
Before I get too far ahead of myself though, let’s talk about this week! Starting with my workouts.
Sat., March 4 & Sun., March 5 – Rest days! I spent these days enjoying my bachelorette party in Fort Lauderdale with my best friends. Does staying out dancing until 3 a.m. count as a workout? 😉
Mon., March 6 – Another rest day. My body was EXHAUSTED after all the fun, and I needed some time to sleep in before getting back to reality.
It was Fabio’s first time going to that class and he seemed to really like it. The instructors are so good at Definitions and really make newbies feel welcome, so I could see why he enjoyed it.
We completed a bunch of different intervals that included exercises like rowing, battle ropes, planks, TRX squats and rows, kettlebell swings, and side shuffles. It was a good one!
Wed., March 8 – Anne and I headed into DC for another class on Wednesday, this time for our favorite Sculpt class at CorePower Yoga! Our favorite instructor Mandy was teaching again, and she just makes these classes so difficult.
For those of you who don’t know much about this class, it’s a mix of yoga and bootcamp-style exercises and includes weights, a cardio segment, and lots of muscle-burning movements. I always think the plank series in particular is super hard, and the sweat was dripping off my face onto my mat the whole time. Lovely.
Thurs., March 9 – It was a beautiful day on Thursday, so Fabio and I headed out for a 3 mile run with Jack! Our pace was pretty speedy for us – around 8:52 – which are numbers we haven’t seen in a while. It’s nice to be building speed back up!
Fri., March 10 – There’s a TRX class in Rosslyn I’m debating going to tomorrow morning (I’m writing this on Friday night) but I haven’t signed up yet because I’m thinking I might want to hang around with Fabio in the morning before he leaves for his trip instead (you know, to make sure he didn’t forget to bring clean underwear and remind him – again – to please be careful and come home in one piece). 😉 So we will see how I feel tomorrow!
As for other highlights from the week, I had a few!
After all the debauchery in Fort Lauderdale, I enjoyed a delicious salad full of #alltheveggies on Monday for lunch. I had the Rad Thai salad from SweetGreen, and it hit the spot!
My dad had a meeting in Arlington on Wednesday, so he stuck around when it was over so we could have dinner together. We went to our favorite Tex-Mex spot, Uncle Julio’s, and I enjoyed two of the three fish tacos pictured below.
I love when there are leftovers!
I also ordered one of the skinny margaritas instead of the big swirl cocktail I usually get (which is half frozen sangria and half frozen margarita), and it was delicious!
I’m especially excited to try the organic white balsamic vinaigrette dressing, which looks right up my alley. Thank you, Giant!
Favorite Special Occasion
Remember when my friends sent me this amazing basket full of alcohol that I am supposed to drink during various wedding planning milestones?
Well we are officially less than 100 days out from our wedding, so Fabio and I enjoyed this bottle of delicious beer one night this week!
Lol – see Jack in the background?
We were a couple of days late due to the bachelorette party last week, but we still made it work. We enjoyed the beer while trying to figure out first and last names for everyone we’re inviting to the wedding, which is something we should have done ages ago and actually wound up being pretty tough (we had a lot of “Maria y familia” and “Sarah & her boyfriend” so we had to clean up all of that). Blech. The beer made it easier. 🙂
Alright friends, that’s all I have for today. Have a wonderful weekend!
Question of the day: Are you a beer drinker or wine drinker?
