Hey there, how was your weekend? Mine seemed to fly by (don’t they always?), but it was still full of fun. Since being back in school, I’ve really tried making a diligent effort to complete most of my homework on Fridays, rather than leave it for the rest of the weekend. Five years ago when I was back in Bryant completing my business degree, I always left my homework for Sunday, which made me absolutely DESPISE this day of the week. So on Friday, after finding out my sister was engaged(!)I tried(key word=tried) to focus on accomplishing my big paper for my science/practical activity class. The only way I can possibly focus when doing a paper is coming here:
Library silent zone for life!
For the amount of wedding-related ideas I had running through my brain, I have to give myself credit for what I accomplished on my paper, considering my mind was elsewhere. Honestly though, once a fan of the library, always a fan of the library. I may be a geek, but I adore the silent zone. If I’m home, I’ll do anything but study. I mean, who can possibly study when there’s a tv, computer, endless cupboards of food, a stocked refrigerator, and usually a boyfriend to procrastinate with? Definitely not me! After I closed down the library, we toasted to my sister and her new fiancé with champagne and homemade pizza.
Sorry for the blurry picture!
Saturday morning started off with some cardio and a sweaty body pump class, which I loved because we learned the newest release! I <3 body pump. I squeezed in a few more productive hours of homework in the late morning, but got in some quality beach time with Brandon later that afternoon. We came home sun-kissed and exhausted! Does anyone else always feel super tired after laying in the sun? Leftovers and Pitch Perfect rounded out Saturday night, and boy did it feel good to laugh…Rebel Wilson rules.
Since I did the majority of my homework on Friday and Saturday…Sunday got to be just what we needed, a fun-day! Being that both of us have felt quite homesick lately, we made it a day full of things that would make us smile, consisting of:
All in all, Sunday as a fun-day was just what I needed, and Brandon too.
What did you do this weekend?
I can’t end this post without mentioning Brandon’s Grandfather, who passed away this afternoon. We are so saddened, and wish more than anything we could be home with his family at this difficult time. It’s truly times like these when being away from home is the absolute hardest. I’m thinking of the French family today and always. xoxo
