We’ve had a busy and great weekend thus far - got some Food and Wine Festival in, we deep cleaned our house, we shopped, we cooked a fun Mexican fiesta at home last night - fun stuff!
No working out. I thought it would be fabulous to go a full 7 days without doing anything exercise-worthy. I know this isn’t a great idea, but I just thought a full week off would be so nice. So that’s what I did. Tomorrow, it’s back to the grind. I promise! Gotta keep this thing in check!
So we only did one lap around the world (approx 1.5 miles), and we stopped and ate a bunch of food in between, but hey, walking is walking. It’s better than sitting on the couch right?
Epcot was SO crowded on Friday night. I mean, it was the first day of the festival, but still, we thought it would be empty on the first evening and then super crowded on the weekend. We’re dumb. It was ridonkulous crowded and made us very excited for Monday night, when we’ll go and have the park (and food) to ourselves. I did get my beef skewer with Chimichurri and boniato that I have been dreaming about for the last week or so.
It doesn’t look fabulous, but it is. Trust me. I don’t even know what boniato is (tastes like mashed potatoes), but I do know that it’s delicious and can now be safely added to the vegetables I will eat column. We also sampled food in Japan, Germany, Canada and Hawaii and then stopped at the desserts and champagne booth to round out the night. We had a fun time!
Saturday, I didn’t wake up until 8:00 and decided that watching Project Runway in bed sounded better than my planned 3 mile walk on the treadmill. So that’s what I did. However, fear not, I did get lots of cardio in that day. Hubs and I scoured our house from the hours of 10-2. I kid you not, we cleaned for four hours and I probably got my heart rate up higher from cleaning than walking (no joke!). Not that our house was that dirty, but we decided we wanted to rid ourselves of cat hair. This obviously isn’t a lasting thing since we still have a big, white, furry cat living in our house, but we de-furred our bedroom (vacuuming in our comforter and dust ruffle, all which had visible white fur on in), the couch (I even flipped all of the cushions, and now it looks like we have a brand new couch), and everywhere else that had visible fur. We swept, mopped, dusted, cleaned the fans, cleaned the bathrooms, cleaned the blinds and I even decorated for Autumn, getting out all of our Fall/Halloween decor. It feels Fall-ish in our house now, even though it’s still 93 degrees here. Exciting!
Like I said, we’re not dirty people, but it just feels so amazing to have a super duper clean house. Am I right? After that we got showered and dressed and went and had lunch (at 3:30) and then ran some errands - Costco, Target, and we finally bought a chair for our new desk. Fun times! On the way home we decided that we wanted Mexican for dinner, so got all of the fixings for taco night, brought them home and Hubs cooked for me! He makes one thing in the kitchen, and that’s tacos, so I let him cook for me. Fun stuff! After dinner we watched Clash of the Titans (no, not the 1980s Harry Hamlin version, the one that was out a couple of years ago) and I read some magazines.
It’s been a great weekend, and today is rest day - movie watching (now we’re watching the sequel, Wrath of the Titans, sheesh), and chilling out. Perfect way to end the weekend. Now I'm off to see if Sabrina posted about the Tower of Terror 10 Miler that I didn't get to do this year. I cannot wait to hear all about it!!! Have a great rest of the day!
