Lately I’ve gotten into a really nice weekend groove where I’ve had plenty of time for running errands, farmers market trips, yoga practices and most importantly…being at home where I can get things done around the house, bake, cook and relax. There has been a ton of work done to my house and yard over the last few months and it feels so good to pull into the driveway and feel excited and happy to be home rather than stressed over everything that needs to be done. I will share some before/after photos with you soon!
I am currently enjoying a cup of chai tea with coconut milk and agave as I write this post and try to decide on a baking project to tackle when I’m done. I’m thinking maybe some sort of pumpkin cookie.
When I make tea at home I usually use loose leaf teas and my ingenuiTEA pot. It’s so easy to use and I love to see the dried tea “bloom” as it steeps.
Lunch prior to tea time was a sandwich and salad. I’ve loved my sandwiches this week because I got this awesome honey sunflower seed bread from the bakery. I decided to switch things up with my salad today and made a homemade honey mustard instead of balsamic. It was tangy, sweet and just a little spicy hot from lots of Dijon…just the way I like it!
I was thrilled to have 90 whole minutes to spend on my yoga mat this morning. It’s been weeks since I’ve been able to make it to anything longer than a 60-minute class. I really love the longer classes where you have more time for standing flow and then floor work at the end. I felt so open today and had a wonderful practice. I practiced every day but Thursday this week so it’s been a good yoga week for me.
I was up around 7:30 this morning to work on a yoga-related project before class. I had a bowl of oatmeal and coffee to help wake me up. (My UGA bear says GO DAWGS!)
So let’s talk about last night…I went to George’s Brasserie for some of their amazing mussels and crusty bread (admit it, part of the reason you order mussels is for dipping the bread in the sauce…I swear I could drink it) along with a glass of red wine.
The plan was to have an appetizer before going to Lululemon for some after-hours shopping. They invited the ambassadors to the store after close last night to check out some things that were 30 percent off of already marked down prices. Wine + Friday night + Lululemon = TROUBLE!
I decided it was a good idea to come home with bright yellow Wunder Unders. I’ve steered away from the colored Wunder Unders trend in favor of black. Black is easy and always flattering. Well, I certainly took the plunge into color land last night. Go big or go home! At one point when I was trying things on last night I was told I looked like a box of crayons! 😛
I also picked up a beautiful bright blue jacket that I can’t wait to wear all winter long. I ended up getting both things for about 50 percent off…which is a major steal at Lulu. Has anyone else jumped on the colored Lulu pants trend? I’ll post a picture when I wear these bad boys for the first time! 😉
I’ll leave you with this fall sky picture I snapped last night as the clouds were breaking after a rainy day and the sun was setting. I’ve been Instagram-happy this weekend!
