Weekend Recap


So, we are back at it...the start of the "work week"...I've said it before and I know I'll say it again: I'm glad you're back my dear friend otherwise known as Monday! I feel as though the further into summer we get, the busier our weekends are, and I love that, but I also love order and schedules and nothing about our weekend screams either of those! I'm sorry if that offends anyone, because I know Mondays aren't for everyone!

Our weekend started off slow, with a very quiet night in on Friday night...I made a meal from my meal plan, even though we usually go out to eat on Friday nights. I just decided that since I had all of the ingredients, why not whip it up! So, I made the ginger turkey stir fry recipe and oh my heavens! It was delicious!! Seriously, so yummy! If you like a lighter Chinese meal, this one's for you! You can find that recipe here.
Then after dinner, A went to Sonic for our weekly ice cream treat and brought us all home half price shakes...remember how I told you that they were stepping up their game and came out with over 25 different flavor combinations for their shakes? Well, I decided to try the Oreo cheesecake version and I gotta say: not impressed! Don't waste your money on that one...lesson learned!

Then Saturday morning I was craving a nice long run, so I laced up and headed out, aiming for 8-10 miles. It was a cool morning, with thunderstorms lingering in the west and predicted for the entire day, so I wanted to bust it out before I got rained on. Well, I was able to get 8 miles in at a little over an hour, before the rain started. Not too shabby for not having run in over a couple months!

Then it was home to get ready to head back to our old stomping grounds for a good friend's wedding. I kicked things up a notch with my makeup and hair, knowing I'd be seeing quite a few of our old high school friends...most of whom haven't seen me since I decided to bust my butt and get in shape, so I had something to prove to them!
This was me the last time most of them had seen me...
This was me on Saturday night...
Annnnnd...I think my point was proven. Hardly anybody recognized me, and everyone I talked to wanted to know what the heck I had been doing the past couple of years...I was able to prove to myself, more than anyone else, that my hard work and determination had definitely paid off! So, to all of those kids in high school that would make smart remarks about my weight, I definitely put them in their place Saturday night! 

A's parents watched M for the night, so we partied like we were rockstars, shutting the place down and carpooling with a friends' parents back to a's parent's house. (Made me feel like I was in college all over again!) But not before we hit up Mickey D's for a little late night munchies pit stop. Nothing like chicken nuggets and big Mac's to help sober you up, huh?? Definitely regretting that decision today! 
Sunday morning we let A's parents take care of morning M duty while we slept in until 9:30...it was incredible. After a cup of coffee to ward off our hangovers, we loaded up to get back home.

The rest of the afternoon was spent with a three hour family nap, followed by a movie and some Mexican take-out that we had a buy one get one free coupon for...who doesn't love free food?!

And, in typical Sunday Schaben family fashion, we were all in bed by 8:00 last night.

I've said it before but I'll say it again:

1.) I'm not 21 anymore
2.) I love the weekends, but...
3.) I love Mondays more!!

Until next time...
