Weekend Recap: Date, Shopping, and Baby Shower!

Oh how I love the weekends!  Friday on my lunch break, I started the weekend early with a pedicure.  I hadn’t found a nail salon in town yet that I loved, but as long as my polish stays on…this place fits the bill!  Clean, friendly, good service…I liked it!

After work, I went to the gym and swam for 30 minutes.  I wasn’t power swimming with all my might, but it was a nice easy workout.  Then I got some time in the hot tub and sauna and got ready.  I don’t love getting ready at the gym (because it’s SO hot with the sauna, hot tub, showers, and lights), but I got ready and went on a date with Tyler!

We had dinner at Joe’s Cantina (my fave Mexican in town!) and then we had froyo.  After that, we played around Academy.  It’s a fun date spot.  We played on the workout equipment, played on the putting green, and I got to shoe shop!  🙂  Tyler bought some new ping pongs, and I got a Razorback tank top.

Saturday morning, I picked up my coworker friend Christina and we went to A-Z to shop.  Christina found this creepy bear statue. 🙂

We shopped for like 4 hours in the HUGE A-Z complex.  Gifts, clothing, furniture, antiques, accessories….we got some good deals.  Then we had pizza buffet and I drove her around town showing her some cool stuff.  Then I came home to clean.  I also hung up my new finds.

New little floating shelves to go in the bedroom…

And some zebra art for over the tub.

Sunday after church, I hosted a surprise baby shower at our house for a Zumba instructor friend, Maureen! 
I made a little diaper cake!  And I made some coffee punch that was super yummy!
We all brought yummy food!  Fruit salad, cake, quiches, grape salad, cheeseball, garlic dip, hot and spicy chicken…so much yummy food!

All the ladies!  I am so thankful to have made such good friends with other local instructors.  We are all so different!  But it works.  It was fun to shower Maureen (in the green tank) and her sweet baby boy with blessings! 

After I cleaned up the party, I went to the park.  I had it all to myself!  I walked 3.1 easy miles. It was pretty hot, but I enjoyed the walk.

I love our little local park.  It’s just 10 minutes from my house.  You can watch the sunset there.  It was really pretty.

A fun weekend for sure!  How was your weekend?  What is your favorite party recipe?  Mine (at the moment) is some sweet and spicy chicken bites.  I usually make them wrapped in bacon…but another instructor today was allergic to pork…so I just made chicken.  They are yummy!  What about you?


  1. What a fun weekend! 🙂
