The weekend birthday celebrations for my hubby continued yesterday with a trip to the lake just up the road (I feel so lucky to live where I do).
Wearing my new bathing suit and cover up from Target…love it!
Lake + Mountain views? Sign me up.
Hubby fished away while I laid around and read
We didn’t end up staying long because Steven’s reel broke. Instead, we ran some errands and went home and spent a couple of hours cleaning our house! Younger me would have used a birthday (even someone else’s) as an excuse to party all week, but “grown-up” me just wants to be productive with my days off.
After we cleaned, I cooked Steven a birthday dinner. He had grilled lemon salmon, roasted red potatoes, and roasted asparagus with cherry tomatoes.
Yes we eat dinner on the couch.
I enjoyed a refreshing mocktail with dinner!
And then it was time for cake and presents. I got him gear for fly fishing (reel, waders, and boots) and some Under Armor workout clothes (his absolute favorite).
Sampson thinks he’s a pretty good present too.
Today is all about more chores and such. I just went grocery shopping for the first time in a llllooooonnnngggg time. We were miserably low on produce so I loaded up.
Get in my belly
I have a million loads of laundry to do plus I’m going to work on food prep for the week. I want to make raw macaroons and bean dip today and I plan on eating Spicy Peanut Tempeh Noodles, a Sushi bowl, lots of salads, and a new recipe this week. I really, really, really want to run but the blisters on my feet are insane still so I’m thinking I will do a pilates DVD…no shoes needed!!
One more thing before I go. Today’s Affirmation: I am desirable. Not in a sexy kinda way (although I wouldn’t hate that) but an “I’m up for a job that I really want and they’d be crazy not to hire me” kinda way. I feel like I have a lot to offer and I know I would be a great addition to their team. I believe in myself and I believe I deserve this job. Wish me luck…I am hoping to find out this week.
