Ready for the Week
This weekend I tried to focus on prepping for this week because I have plenty on my to do list. I have a few phone and in-person interviews coming up, and today I begin my first swim lessons of the summer! A few years back I decided to break away from my life guarding job and develop my own swim lesson program. It’s been successful for 4 years now–there is nothing better than working with cute kids!
So yesterday I went shopping-crazy. The kind of shopping where you fly through the aisles like a mad woman because you only have an hour to do everything on your to-do list before your brother’s championship soccer game starts. So I hit up Target first for lots of sunscreen. And happened to find some cute thank you cards for graduation and an excellent Essie color while I was there
Next was Trader Joe’s. I needed some healthy snacks for the week–especially because today starts my 100 mile challenge to get beach-ready!
and I had just enough time to run into Loft and jump on the colored skinny jean bandwagon. When I shop, I normally tend to buy anything and everything I think I like. And then I get some sense knocked into me (after the shopping bag stares at me from the corner of my room—and I think about the damage to my savings account) and return the majority of it the next day. I’ll let you know how these jeans hold up
After Zach’s soccer team kicked butt during the tournament, my family went to Ghengis Grill for dinner. It’s a Mongolian-style grill with a buffet line where you pick all the meat, veggies and sauce you want and then the chefs cook it up on a large, open grill in the middle of the restaurant. I made sure to load up on shrimp and broccoli and had it mixed with some brown rice. YUM.
And afterwards, I may or may not have come back to my house and consumed a large portion of the cinnamon bread I baked Saturaday morning.
Pillsbury Quick bread cinnamon bread. It’s not healthy. But it’s to die for. And yes, I ate it straight from the pan. With a giant fork. ….it’s definitely time to get back to running.
Well I’m off to babysit and do some lessons. Hope you have a wonderful Monday!
