I had such a great relaxing, yet productive weekend!! I started it out by organizing and cleaning up so I had the whole rest of the time to have fun without guilt.
I really did three things all weekend: Run, Cook and SCRAPBOOK!!
I really HATE to cook. I hate all things related to cooking: grocery shopping, meal planning, and the actual cooking part. (Don’t let my sporadic recipes on the blog fool you!)
But I got the itch and suddenly my kitchen looked like this:
I made a Blueberry & Peach Crisp, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, Blueberry Muffins, Israeli Cous Cous, and a few other random meals in there. I don’t know what came over me!
While I was baking, I was listening to the “90s” music station on the cable box. I literally squealed when this came on!
Circa 1990 baby!
After I got all of my domestic duties out of the way…. it was on to SCRAPBOOKING!
My Dining room went from this:
To This… in 10 minutes FLAT!
Seriously, it looks like I own a scrapbook store.
It was “Operation-Make-My-Wedding-Scrapbook!”
This is my STACK of things to get into that book:
I have SO many wedding-related things to use, it was so much fun.
Our colors were Teal and Brown, so I saved all the ribbon I got over the past 2 years!
I promise to show you the finished pages when it’s done. I’m really proud of how it’s coming out. Stay tuned!
This morning, I headed out to the beach with the Los Angeles Racers for a 6-mile run (per my training plan). Mile 3 was pretty slow for me, but I was able to pick up the pace at the end (thanks to my friends!!)
The weather was perfect. Overcast and a little cool. PERFECT!! We even saw dolphins swimming off the coast towards the end!!
And speaking of dolphins, I just wanted to share this picture of Irving unknowingly swimming with dolphins in Malibu in 2006!
Heading out into the surf:
Here are the dolphins playing in the waves!
Irving ended up right next to them! He told me after that he didn’t see them and when he turned around he thought it was a shark. Scary!! But they just wanted to play!
I love Los Angeles!!! Have a great week everyone!
Ha, I think it’s funny how different we all are. I LOVE meal planning, grocery shopping, cooking and then of course eating but scrapbooking would give me so much anxiety. Can’t wait to see the finished product. You had the same wedding colors as I did. 🙂
haha Meal Planning gives me anxiety. haha I’ll definitely post pictures when it’s done. That’s awesome we had the same colors. I love that it was something different. 🙂
Those dolphin pics are amazing! Esp the one you caught with them in the waves. Wow. And um, can you please come to my house and cook all those meals + baked goods and put my wedding scrapbook together?!?! So very impressed with your productive weekend. 🙂
Gotta love random NKOTB.
