Where did the weekend go?!

I cannot believe it’s already Monday!  I feel like it should just now be Friday.  Not that I’m complaining about Monday already being here, because this is the last full week of school. 🙂

This weekend was kind of a blur due to lack of sleep and odd hours of work.  Let’s just take it one piece at a time.


Friday night Daniel went on a motorcycle ride with one of our friends that recently got a bike.  My dad was in town, so I headed over to my parents house to hang out for a couple of hours.  I knew I had an early morning, so I made myself go to bed before eleven.


Boy, this day started EARLY.  My alarm clock went off at 3:30 a.m., and I hit the snooze a couple times before finally rolling out of bed to get ready.  I was doing a Zumba class at the fairgrounds for Relay for Life.  The class started at 5, and when I pulled into the parking lot at 4:30, it started to rain.  Did I mention the class was outside??? Luckily, there was a HUGE stage that I got to dance on, and my loyal zumba ladies (seriously, they are so amazing to get up that early on a Saturday to come support me/get a free workout  – I love them!) had enough room to stand under a small awning.  Not that many people participated, although I have no idea why.  I mean, who doesn’t want to shake your booty at 5 a.m. in the rain after walking all night long????  Even though only a small handful danced along, we did draw a little group of spectators.

Daniel had to go into work on Saturday morning, so I drove home around 6:15 to see him before he left.  I had plans of being productive before going to teach another Zumba class at ten…..yeah.  That didn’t happen.  After Daniel left, I sat down in the chair to check some emails, and it was all over.  I dozed on and off until around 8, and then checked emails and caught up on blogs until 9 when I had to get ready to leave.  The second class was fun, and my energy was back after the first song.  That afternoon, Daniel and I both lounged around and took naps, and then the real fun happened.  We cleaned out the guest bedroom and took down a bedroom suit that my cousin was coming to pick up.  I’m telling you, we are some crazy people over here!  We did end up getting out for dinner at a local Mexican place.  Oh, when my cousin came over, she brought her adorable Morkie puppy, Maple, who is only nine weeks old.  Check out how cute she is!!!!!!!

you better believe I airbrushed out the circles under my eyes!


MOTHERS DAY!  My parents joined us at church, and then we took my mom out for sushi (and some presents, of course).  The sushi was amazing, and I definitely ate too much.  This was followed by the typical Sunday routine, groceries, food prep, some laziness, etc.  I went back over to my parents to spend more time with them before my dad leaves town for work again, and my mom had made this beautiful strawberry pie.

sorry for the phone pic

Don’t worry, that wasn’t my slice.  Mine was about 9/10 the size of this slice haha.

I hope that you enjoyed your weekend and that your Monday is off to a great start!  Happy belated Mothers Day to all of you moms out there – you are truly heroes, and I respect and admire you!

So tell me…

What was the best part of your weekend?

Did you celebrate Mothers Day?

    Yay for the last week of school! I think I’m more excited for you this week than the work week I have ahead 🙂

    This weekends highlight was definitely the pool part I went to on Saturday. Nothing like drinks and sunshine to get me in the mood for summer!
