This weekend was pretty fantastic in my world. It’s getting super hot in Florida now (the heat index was 102 on Sunday afternoon. Yikes!), but that’s what pools and beaches and air conditioning are for, right? I don’t mind the heat, but it can get a little too much sometimes.
On Friday night, I headed over to a friend’s house for book club. We ordered pizza, had a good discussion about the book pick for the month, and then chit-chatted about a whole bunch of random stuff. Lots of laughs were had and inside jokes were formed. I love book club!
Saturday kicked off with a walk around a lake with Dutch, to virtually support Becky as she did the Washington, D.C. Walk of Hope to bring awareness and a voice to infertility. Becky is such an awesome lady and it’s been a rough year for her and her husband. I was happy to support them in my very little way!
After that, I headed over to Tampa to meet up with a friend. She lives in the SoHo area of Tampa, which is such a fun area. (It actually feels like a city! I’ve never been a huge fan of Tampa, but she might have convinced me to check this area out when I start looking for a new place to live.) She has the most adorable condo and we spent a few hours soaking up the rays by her pool, then she cooked me a delicious spaghetti lunch! How nice, right? I can’t remember the last time someone cooked for me. (Uh. Aside from family… nobody?! My life is sad.) Then, we walked over to Starbucks (it took less than 5 minutes! DUDE. I can’t walk to anywhere in my area that quickly!) and enjoyed a drink before I had to leave.
On Sunday, my mom and I went to church (so happy to be back!), then we took naps and went out to lunch at Tijuana Flats. Then, we visited a local farmer’s market where my. mind. was. blown. Like, I know farmer’s markets are muuuuch cheaper than the grocery store, but I was able to buy one whole watermelon, one whole pineapple, 4 lbs of potatoes, one bunch of green onions, one tomato, and one head of garlic for under $8! I compared the prices at Publix, and it would have cost me almost $18 for all of that. Is that crazy or what?! I will be buying all my produce from them from now on.
The rest of my weekend was quiet. I watched some TV, meal prepped for the week, did laundry and other chores, and caught up one some blogs. A low-key ending to a very great weekend!
For the past few months, Kerri’s been doing a post every Monday detailing her “to-do list” for the week. I really love reading her goals for the week, and I thought it couldn’t hurt to make some myself. I think I’ll keep it easy at five goals per week and see how it goes:
1. Make a dentist appointment and call my health insurance company to have them send me a replacement card (I somehow lost mine… so it’s pretty difficult to schedule doctor’s appointments without one, yes?)
2. Work out five times
3. Add two pages to my blog: “Hire Me” and “Contact Me”
4. Write at least 2,000 words in my current WIP and spend at least 1 hour working on my outline for my Camp NaNoWriMo book
5. Drink at least 32 ounces of water each day
How was your weekend? Do you shop at a farmer’s market? Any goals for the upcoming week?
