This weekend was a fun one. My company hosted its annual company/client college football tailgate party, which also included tickets to the Wisconsin/Indiana game. It rained like crazy, but we still had a blast.
The food was excellent…
As were the drinks (I had a few amaaazing Bloody Mary’s)…
We brought Mason for part of the tailgate party, before sending him home for a nap (my bro came over to babysit while we went to the game). He took one look at the wide open space inside the giant tent and declared it heaven.
He also met an older woman… (!)
The two of them had so much fun chasing each other around (in the rain). She kept yelling “This way, baby! Chase me, baby!” Haha! So cute.
Yesterday involved a little recovery time for me. Turns out I’m not in college anymore, folks. (But when you’re new at a company, trying to make a good impression, and everyone around you takes a group shot, do you turn it down?? No, you do not.)
I’m really shocked that I somehow made it through a good NASM study sesh, despite being totally drained and glued to the couch most of the day. (Only 4 more weeks to Exam Day–WHAT!? So. Not. Ready.)
Here’s something else that happened yesterday:
I know it’s not even Thanksgiving yet, but whatever. It’s just a few things, ok?
I’d happily put our tree up right now if that didn’t seem to be frowned upon by society. (Or maybe it’s just frowned upon by my husband?)
Oh, did I tell you about Mase’s haircut debacle?
I’ve cut his hair myself a few times now, and was getting pretty confident…until I decided to give the razor method a shot. Apparently, this was way too much power in my hands.
I cannot (CAN. NOT.) explain how it happened, but I somehow managed a TV-sitcom-worthy “slip” that resulted in a gaping near-bald spot right on the back of the poor kid’s head. I tried so hard to blame other things–the stupid razor, the way he refused to put his head down–but the reality is that it was all me.
Luckily, my friend is a hair stylist and was kind enough to rush over in response to a text message that included the words “HAIR EMERGENCY.” I begged her not to laugh. She couldn’t help it.
Anyway, he now has a SUPER-short borderline-military cut, but the “bald” spot is relatively hidden. Plus, it’s been less than a week and I can already see how much it’s grown back.
He’s still a little embarrassed about it, though, poor kid.
Here’s his latest trick, by the way: triggering the water dispenser on the fridge, so he gets a spray to the eye.
He still acts shocked when it happens, every time.
By the end of the day yesterday, after not working out all weekend, my legs were getting The Itch. (Know what I mean?) I wasn’t in the mood for a run or anything full-body, so I opted for a few leg-targeting videos.
First up: the Fitnessista’s Barre Burner. I loooove barre workouts and eat them up when I find them online. This one’s pretty short, though, and I wanted to really annihilate the Leg Itch, so afterwards, I moved on to this legs/thighs Blogilates workout.
Have you tried Blogilates yet? I’m officially a fan. Cassey has an insane amount of in-home bodyweight workout videos on her blog, along with workout calendars, recipes, meal plans, and cool printables. You can seriously get lost for hours on that site.
Plus, she has a really sweet, positive personality that (kind of) helps you forget that your body is on fire during her workouts. During the leg/thigh burner, she casually talked about fall fashion while plie-squatting a bazillion times. Ha!
Here’s to a great week!
