Grilling Out, Couples Retreat, 6 miles + ST

What up?! Happy Friday! I’m on a cloud – woo! So glad the work week is almost ova! THANK YOU for your sweet comments on my new dresses. I’m just so freaking obsessed with dresses – I honestly can’t pass them up – eek! Austin said I have to get rid of some to “make room” for some of the new ones. My mom promised she would help me purge. This should be interesting and no, I’m not fully ready to depart with any of my beloved dresses! Moving on… or backward… yesterday was great! I worked from home, had a VERY successful meeting with the lighting contractor, walked 3.5 miles during lunch, had a meeting in the office, got my eyebrows waxed, then prepared food for grilling out with Katie and Chris.

Totally impromptu (the boys planned it!), but SO fun to have them over! Austin grilled burgers and made a caprese salad, while I made Mac & cheese, baked beans and chocolate covered strawberries (told ya – total staple around here!). Then we hung out, had drinkies, played bocce ball and had a blast. Love hanging out with them! I ended up at 1,755 calories, 172 carbs, 33 fat grams and 100 protein grams. Here’s what I ate and drank –not bad, the calorie cutting is working! I can really tell that I didn’t even need the calories I had been eating, was just eating because why not??? Well the answer to “why not?” is “so you don’t gain weight.” Good to know!

So this weekend I’m off for a couples retreat (hehe) in Auburn with these people. I’m so very excited!

Besties! Mary V and T!

Us with our mens - Jimmy, Austin & Forrest. Freakishly I've known these people since sophomore year of college, which, might I add, was about 9 years ago. O. M. G.

In the meantime, I spent Friday thus far at work, walking 3 miles + upper body ST during lunch, and more work... BLAH.

How often do you clean out the old closet? I'm nervous...

What 'cha doing this weekend? I'm so ready to roll!!

P.S. I'm tres behind on blog reading but no worries - bringing my aircard!!! I will catch up asap - yesss!

Have fun on your couples retreat! I love that you're going with your college friends, I'm sure you're going to have a blast.

This weekend I'm probably going to hang out at my parents' looking forward to a weekend of just relaxing.

Have a great weekend, chica!

What a coincidence- I'm purging, too!! :-) It's hard to get rid of ANYTHING!!

I've decided to offer some of the get-rid-ofs on my blog first, then ebay, then yard sale, in that order.

A couples retreat how fun!

I love to clean out my closets and cupboards. I try to do it twice a year, once in Spring and once in Fall.

lauradishes said...

you were at marshall's over lunch the other day, right? i was 99% sure that was you in the dressing room, but umm, what are the chances that we would run into each other coming in/out of a dressing room?!

Jason and I are the opposite. He wants to hang on to clothes forever and I'm like, if I haven't worn it in a year, toss it.

Mica said...

I have the opposite problem because I never buy dresses. I should purge some things though--things that are old and probably out of style, hahaha.

Have a great weekend!

Gabriela said...

I just purged my closet, and while I hate getting rid of pretty stuff, my life feels so much less cluttered now! Hope you're enjoying your couples' retreat!

Kacy said...

It's time for me to clean out my closet again! I LOOOVE dresses and have way too many. I usually do it at least twice a year, but not sure when I'll have time next.

I hope you had a fun couples retreat :)
