i'm headed into an abbreviated work week -- just 3 days of mostly lab/conference time before my 11 day vacation begins [by one day, this will be the longest stretch i've had off since medical school!]. it will also be a staycation, except for the fact that we'll be vacating our chapel hill apartment and moving across town [to downtown durham].
i have to admit -- i'm already SO excited about spending the days organizing to move, relaxing [lots of reading, yoga, baking] and planning the virtual summer retreat. but today is still important, too!
good things about 5.16.2011
✰ starting off with an easy run on a breezy 60 degree morning
✰ plenty of time for catch-up at work
✰ many learning opportunities <-- [5 hours of conferences scheduled]
✰ i can enjoy being 30 [rather than thirtysomething] for one of 3 more days
✰ i'm kind of excited about making this heidi swanson recipe tonight!
see? no need to hurry to get to the future. 5.16.11 isn't exactly going to come around again, right? [at least not in this lifetime!]
nothing crazy -- just a lovely, relaxing weekend day.
♥ yoga/fro-yo date [at blue point/LoYo, of course] with sue!
while the yoga class wasn't one of my favorites [very slow-paced without much of a flow], we had such a great time hanging out and talking! can't wait to do it again.
♥ . . . and i thought both the peach + coconut flavors were fantastic [strewn with blueberries + granola + enjoyed outside in the sun]
♥ i got a new water bottle! i lost my sigg a while back [and was sort of glad i did because i did not like the aesthetics].
♥ i indulged josh's craving to get burgers for dinner . . .
♥ . . . and this time i had one too!
we had actually wanted to go to bull city burger + brewery [it's even on my 10 in 100 list!], but they were closed sundays. oh well -- another weekend adventure awaits!
5.14 - 5.15
saturday: 30 minutes on the elliptical + ~25 minutes weights
sunday: 5 mile run in CH + yoga class
the kitchen was quiescent this weekend. ah well.
