The high was of my week was having a triple date night on Friday night. Alex and I went out two other couples for Mexican food and then a night of bowling. (Local people – get thee to a Pin Chasers on Friday night. It’s $15, including shoes, all you can bowl, starting at 10:30pm. Yessss!) I haven’t bowled in over a year, and I was pretty certain I was going to be the worst of the bunch, but I wasn’t! I even got a turkey during one game! And I just had the best time with the people I was with. Lots of laughs and good times all around.
The low of my week was nothing, really! There’s nothing I can really point out as a low. That’s really awesome!
A blog post I really enjoyed was Why Wanderlust is ‘Holding Onto Childhood’ by Ashley of She’s Come Undone. I love Ashley’s adventurous spirit, how she really goes after what she wants in life. She’s got the wanderlust spirit, all right, and it’s incredibly inspiring. I loved this post about her thoughts on wanderlust.
In a sense traveling is “holding onto childhood.” It’s holding onto that sense of wonder children see the world with, daily. How invigorating, how enthralling to hold onto to those things that give us a passion for life!
A podcast episode I enjoyed was New Year New You by The Joy the Baker Podcast. This podcast is one of my all-time favorites, and I was so, so sad when it went on a hiatus this fall. But then it came back! And I am sooooo sooooo sooooo happy because I missed it. I just love the conversational tone, I love their friendship, and they’re just girls you can relate to and want to be friends with.
The best money I spent was $30 for bowling on Friday night. Alex and I bowled four games a piece, so we definitely got our money’s worth!
For my workouts, I completed two runs and a walk. I’m aiming for four runs a week, so I fell a bit short of my goal, but oh well! I am proud of my two runs because they were extremely hard, but I pushed through the discomfort and the pain, and finished. The mental game that is running is such a character builder! Whew!
My plans this weekend include book club tonight (dinner and then heading over to a brewery for game night), and then the rest of the weekend is up in the air! These are my favorite types of weekends. 🙂
What was the highlight of your week?
