Good morning! How was your weekend? Are you getting excited for Thanksgiving? I sure am! This weekend was so fulfilling to me. We didn't go anywhere exciting, or do anything out of the ordinary, but it was AWESOME. Since we've been gone the past few weekends, I really wanted to deep-clean, organize, cook, run errands, rearrange furniture, and do lots of home related stuff. To me this sort of stuff is so fun and rejuvenating! Is anyone else like that (besides my mother, HA!)? The best part was doing it all with Greg, and taking fun meal and beverage breaks in between. That made it much more special! Plus, we were extra hungry this weekend with all of the running around, and deep-cleaning. Not my standard version of exercise, but I definitely worked up a nice sweat. ;-) Take a peek!
Friday night Greg worked late, so Charlie and I had a quiet evening of rearranging items in the house, while I ate a yummy salad and sipped a nice red. Yum!
Saturday morning we began cleaning, then headed out to run errands. Before we started, we tried a new place for breakfast. I ordered chilaquiles (my fave), and it was DELICIOUS. As you can see, there was a lot of food. I ate most of my chilaquiles and salad, and left the rest. This held me over almost all day, which was great! We then started our errands. Dollar store, Michaels, Target, and Trader Joe's (for all of our Thanksgiving essentials)! Busy day!
That evening I made a big batch of veggie enchiladas to have for the next few days (to limit as much cooking as possible pre-Thanksgiving day). We also had a yummy kombucha cocktail made with Kevita's Pineapple-Peach Kombucha + vodka. So refreshing!
Sunday morning was quiet, followed by lots of organizing. Isn't that photo of Greg and Charlie precious? I want to frame it! Love my boys!
Later that day we ran a few more errands, and stopped for burgers. Holy moly, my veggie burger was amazing. So many veggies, and a house-made veggie patty. Yummy!
Intuitive eating side note: I totally noticed a difference in what my body was wanting this weekend (change of weather and routine). She wanted more protein, carbs, and fats, which is totally okay. This held me over, gave me energy to check off my to-do list without getting burned out, and I didn't "over do it." If intuitive eating is something you want to learn more about, let's chat!
It was a great weekend, and I feel like we got so much accomplished. I love that! I hope you all have a great day, and I will see you Wednesday!
