WIAW: Short and Sweet

Morning!

This post is up quite a bit later than usual because I wasn’t feeling too great last night, so I hit the hay rather than writing this post. Man, was it worth it because I cannot remember the last time I slept that long! I feel like a spring chicken!

I’ve got a ton of photos for you all of the food that has been makin’ me smile recently. Happy WIAW!

I have to keep this super short and sweet today because I’m headed to brunch with Veronica, Je’lyn, and Jeannine. They’re all leaving me for college in the next two days, so this will be our last hurrah! Oh my GOSH.

Hope you all enjoyed seeing some of noms this week. #NOMaste (I’ll explain more about where I got that from later 😉 ) Have an wonderful Wednesday!

So tell me:

What is the best thing you’ve eaten this past week?

Any ethnic foods?

 

House Project Weekend

Hey!

Despite the weekend posting, I haven’t been updating you on what’s been moving and grooving over here the past few days. It’s been hectic, but marvelous-hectic.

Linking up with Mrs. Marvelous herself— Katie!

Thursday

We’re starting all the way from Thursday this time! Thursday is like the new addition to the weekend, right? Anticipation for Friday?

Moves: A lower body workout with pistol squats, Bulgarian split squats, sumo squats, and elevated bridges. I used light weights, but my legs were still trembling! Totally not used to anything but bodyweight…

How I feel at the bottom of a pistol squat

I babysat for a few hours, during which I walked down memory lane (aka Sesame Street), picked up chicken nugget pieces, and chased around this cute little munchkin.

Later, mom and I went to church, and then I got crafty.

My aunt gave me the nice frame, which came with a code for a free collage that I could create online, and I made the pink poster myself. Mom said my poster was “crusty” due to the good ol’ Elmer’s glue. I say it’s rustic!

Friday

This past Friday could also be known as “move ALL THE THINGS day” in our house. Not only was I finally starting to pack clothes and books for college, but mom and I moved all the furniture and objects from the rooms upstairs to the main floor. This happened because mom is renovating the rooms with some new floors and painted walls. The current 12-year-old stained carpets and scraped walls just aren’t that cute anymore.

Sorry the panda pillow pet is mooning you

In the process of getting something from the top shelf of my closet, I bonked my head really hard on the edge of the door post. I have a hard head, but I stepped up quite quickly and forcefully, so it hurt pretty badly. There’s a tender bump on my skull, but now I have an excuse if I start acting giddy and loopy!

Ice ice baby

Some walking and fresh air helped!

My quads were toast from my workout the day before, so walking down the stairs at the park was the hardest part of my day. Going down is deceivingly difficult with sore legs! It was even more comfortable walking uphill than walking on a level path.

Saturday

More furniture moving and treasure-finding while organizing our things {treasures = a bunch of cookbooks}!

Moves: unscrewing things from the walls (serious arm workout with those stubborn screws!), moving furniture, pushups, and an 8-minute ab tabata

After I ran some errands, mom and I went to choose the new paint color for the walls. We got a color called “Beach House,” so I’m hoping it feels tropical in here when I get back from chilly Boston. 😉

I went out to dinner with my friends that night and we had some awesome laughs and conversations. I had a monster Thai Chicken salad that was drowned in sauce, so the dressing was completely unnecessary.

We had a fun night!

Sunday

7 hours of painting.

Paint in my hair, paint in my eyelashes, paint in my underwear.

A break was taken to nourish ourselves, buy extra paint brushes, and detour to buy ice cream for the apple pie we bought from a church fundraiser. Painting all day is tiring, so I’d say this was a well-deserved treat!

Although, I still would have had it whether I painted all day or not.

Now that our rooms are all filled with paint fumes, we’re having a slumber party in the basement! I think the fumes already started affecting me though, because I was extra giggly last night. Or maybe it’s my head still.

Hope y’all have a great Monday!

So tell me:

One thing you did this weekend!

Have you done any house projects recently?

What were your moves this weekend?
