I’ve been a bit MIA this weekend, but it’s because I’ve been so darn busy!
I didn’t take many photos on Friday, but did want to share this fabulous breakfast – a Power Toast sandwich! It’s been awhile since I’ve had Power Toast, but I was craving it Friday morning and decided to do two slices because I had a light lunch planned. I ended up sandwiching the bread so I could eat it on my work commute.
Friday was a super long day and literally non-stop (as most of my days seem…lol).
I had an extra long commute because I was working in a different office. Busy, long day at work. Then straight to Zumba for the auditions. The auditions were fabulous but I will say I was relieved at finally being on the flipside of things. It was so fun being there, cheering on my friends already as an instructor. 🙂 Then I headed out for a beer with friends and then back home to get ready for an early morning.
Saturday morning started out rough and early. Coffee was a major help.
I made an egg and toast, but broke a glass while I was getting ready and was thrown into a rush. I ended up letting breakfast get cold and ate it all sandwich style…in my car again. lol
I was rushing because I was meeting friends promptly at 8:45am for an hour long drive to a Zumbathon out of town.
After teaching Thursday and doing class Friday, I won’t lie…I was tired! BUT…I still had a high energy, awesome time and even got to help lead a couple songs:
- Let Me Think About It (solo)
- Amartes Un Problema (a fave salsa)
- Beautiful Liar (a gorgeous low song)
I love a good Zumbathon!
I brought sustenance for my friends in the form of Larabars! I went with Coconut Cream Pie (err…I know I still owe you a recipe for my real vegan coconut cream pie!)
Too bad I forgot to take a photo of my friends to share with you guys. Fail. lol
Once we got home, I relaxed with some Yogi Calming tea.
Tea quote of the day – “The purpose of life is to enjoy every moment.”
I also had an apple.
I decided to try to be productive instead of blogging and did laundry and wrapped hubby’s presents (which were late! doh!).
Bailey ended up helping with the unwrapping.
Then, my friend Megan came over for dinner.
We had Earthfare spinach feta turkey burgers with homemade potato wedges (slow, but SUPER easy…I should tot share a recipe for them) and steamed veggies (broccoli, carrots, and cabbage).
And then we headed out to a wine bar for a wine and chocolate party for my friend Gina’s birthday. We considered doing something like this, but ended up heading to a different wine bar and bringing our own chocolate.
And now we’re at Sunday!
I have lots of food prep planned, plus house cleaning, organizing, and I don’t know…maybe some down time would be nice! lol
What have you been up to this weekend?

I’ve been doing a lot of fun stuff with my friends this weekend! I hardly see them during the week, so it was nice to reconnect over some good food and talking!!
And the wine/chocolate bar idea is awesome!!
Is that Dolce Vita I see?
Yesterday I had an organization project to do that went unfinished. Today I’m just lounging watching Grey’s Anatomy reruns and dehydrating apple slices. Pitzas (pita pizza) is on the agenda for dinner!
Hopefully you get some down time today, you deserve it!
Those Earthfare turkey burgers got nothin’ on mine 😉
You’ve had a busy weekend! Love the color of the wrapping paper. It reminds me of Tiffany’s. 🙂 I went to the circus last night and spent today doing laundry and cleaning. Yeah…not my coolest weekend. 😉
Busy but fun weekend huh? And that picture reminds me…I MUST try a Larabar soon! They don’t really sell them over here in the UK, but I’ll find them somewhere… 🙂
Still in anticipation for that recipe!! 😀
Wow what a fun weekend! Definitely busy though.
Hope today you get a chance to relax. 🙂
I love that quote. That dinner looks amazingly good. 🙂
Sounds like a busy but fun weekend. Hope you find some time to relax.
Are you guys going out to dinner on Tuesday to celebrate the end of Eat In Month? 🙂
Had to share with you–I went to my very first Zumba experience today! There was a zumba-thon in my town and although I couldn’t find anyone to go with me–I braved it and went. I danced my bootay off, didnt care what anyone thought, moved for 2 hours straight, and had a great time. Thanks for the inspiration!!!! 🙂
Sarah! How did I miss this comment?? Sorry I’m just replying but thank you so much for taking the time to tell me about your zumbathon story. That is SO awesome!!!! I’m so glad you were so brave and danced so carefree! That’s my favorite thing about Zumba. Once you let go, you feel so energized and empowered! 🙂 Thanks again!
