It’s been awhile since my husband has been out of town or is gone overnight. I’ll be honest, I hate it. Even though our town is incredibly safe, I’m kind of a wimp when it comes to being home alone at night. Besides, our king size bed feels a tad oversized when I’m the only one sleeping in it. I also realized that I would hate living alone. Don’t get me wrong, I love my alone time, but after awhile it’s pretty boring and I start doing weird things like talking to myself. I need a person, people, someone to keep me company.
Well, this weekend was one of those times when Cody was gone. Ok, it was really only 24 hours, but regardless, he wasn’t home for a day and a half. I told myself that rather than sulk at the fact that he wasn’t home, that I’d take advantage of it and do things that I like to do, eat what I want, and enjoy it. So I did.
-Single lady dinner: spinach salad topped with tomato, avocado, and egg with a side of roasted butternut squash tossed in coconut oil, cinnamon, and salt & pepper (my new favorite way to eat squash!).
-Had a long phone chat with my bestie from college. I miss her.
-Ben & Jerry’s. Enough said.
-Rented a chick flick. I actually enjoyed this one (I’ve heard others didn’t like it much). I’m glad I kept it for a rental rather than spend more money to see it in theaters, but I thought it was cute. I was crying like a baby by the end of it, but I also cry at the drop of a hat these days.
-Enjoyed a leisurely breakfast Saturday morning that involved pumpkin. My husband isn’t a fan… I know, weirdo.
-I took the pups out for a “speed walk” and completed this workout, except we only went for two miles and completed the strength portion twice. It was the most beautiful morning, and we loved every minute of it!
-Painted my nails. This color again. I just love it.
-Did a little shopping and scored some great deals. (I finally got a couple new bras – yay me!)
-Went out to eat with some ladies from church at Blue Lemon. It was my first time there, and it was wonderful! I got the pear & gorgonzola chicken salad – beautiful and delicious.
By the time Saturday evening rolled around, Cody was home and I was a happy camper. Don’t get me wrong, I loved my “me time”, but I was ready for him to be home. Sunday was spent at church in the morning, relaxing and making cookies in the afternoon, and dinner with friends in the evening.
T’was a great weekend!
