Productive Weekend

Hello!

Productive weekends are almost as awesome as do-nothing weekends. Although, I’m still on summer break, so there’s no real differentiation between the weekend and weekdays…

Productivity is marvelous!

On Friday, I took an active rest day, but I still managed to tire myself out with errands, chores, and cooking. I just want to be a house mom, that’s really it. I feel like I could do those kinds of things all day, every day and be alright. I mean, I don’t have kids, so that’s a probably a major factor in why I’m so zealous about it at the present moment.

Some highlights:

Eating lunch on a yoga mat on the floor while watching cooking channels on YouTube.

I wasn’t feeling too civilized, so I just called it casual Friday.

Headstanding! I got the beginner version finally thanks to Erin @ The Almond Eater’s tips.

It took me a while to figure out that it’s a good idea to warm up your core before doing a headstand/handstand, so an 8 minute ab tabata did the trick beforehand.

Making Kylie’s peanut butter cookie banana chia seed pudding.

This is so good. And healthy! I even got an extra workout because I was too lazy to take out and clean the food processor to make oat flour, so I used this ancient, manual crusher-ma-bob.

I wouldn’t say it became oat flour, but more like oat bran. Oh well. Texture! Fiber! Digestion!

Ice cream and a long walk with Jeannine and Veronica at the local creamery (we missed you, Je’lyn!).

P.S. I had Cap’n Crunchberry ice cream and it was awesome.

We also had Indian food, compliments of Groupon (it’s back in action!). I ♥ the saucy richness of Indian food…and nan!

My cousins, aunt and uncle also arrived yesterday! They’re here for a couple days only, but I always love spending time with them.

More company also means more food at my mom’s bed and breakfast.

Grilled everything + more + a little bit more. Thanks, Mom!

I had fun making Jessica’s whole wheat banana bread with cinnamon coconut streusel for dessert, but I had an even better time eating it. 😀

I can’t wait to have more.

Re-reading this post, it doesn’t seem like I was any more productive that usual, but I promise that I did more than make food and eat it. The rest of the weekend was dedicated to cleaning (I even volunteered to vacuum, what?) and college preparations.

Buying college books: Dad said it’s like the Mafia. All the book companies want is money (LOTS of it), but you can make deals with other sites and people to spend less. Thank God for Amazon.

Dorms: I’ve just started to think about how to decorate my dorm room, and I already give up. Let’s face it, my room is just not going to look like the coveted Pinterest dorm rooms.

Too much effort.

Color scheme? I’ve lived in a baby pink room for the past 10 years; color isn’t my main priority at this time in my life. The most I’m doing is making a photo collage on a rectangular poster board. Done and done.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

So tell me:

Something fun you did this weekend!

Are you very interested in room/home decor?

Have you cooked anything delicious recently?
