[my weekend] jeeps, workouts, and accounting



I haven't really been much in the mood to write a weekend update post in awhile.
mostly, I think, that is because it has been a frozen tundra in Michigan,
and we really haven't been doing much of anything, other than dinners out.
[and I say I don't know why I have been packing on the pounds]
this weekend though, it was pretty eventful. so, I took some photos and I'm ready to share
[just so we are clear...I think I use the term "eventful" more loosely than others

  friday 
Aaron hadn't been feeling good for most of the week so he ended up finally calling in sick.
 it actually worked out because it gave us plenty of time to go get new tires put on the jeep.
[you know, things I really really care about]
we did some driving around, getting stuck, and visiting friends. 
it really was a beautiful 50 degree day and we made the most of it.

that night we ended up going to a bar called "The Clubhouse" with Megan.
it was a really great time and the food was amazing. 
[ask me if I remembered to take a picture of my food, of course not.]
despite quite a bit of peer pressure, I was able to remain sober for the evening.
I am just not a beer person...and I don't think I want to be.


  saturday 
I finally worked out!! probably the first time in over a month.
I finished 60 minutes of cardio and a pretty significant CrossFit WOD.
it was hard, I thought I was gonna vom, but I did it and I felt great afterwards.

after a great workout, I made my first Rogue Fitness purchase!
[typically I don't love to use exclamation points in my posts, but this is cause for real excitement]
I ordered a really nice set of weights and a bar. I can't wait for it to be delivered.

around 1AM Aaron called me on my cell from the garage.
he was all, "hi...what are you doing? are you actually IN bed already?"
I don't know about your husband but typically I do not receive phone calls,
therefore, I knew there was an issue. "what's wrong with you? do I need to come out there?"
turns out he hurt his back again and was stuck sitting on the bumper of the jeep in the garage. 
after like 30 minutes, I finally got him into the house and he wasn't able to move all night.


  sunday 
Aaron was handicapped all day, made for a very active end to the weekend.
we spent some time with my brother [Ryan] who came to visit,
and then Aaron went to sleep for like... 4 hours.

I did accounting homework [a blast] and lots of blogging.
writing posts, creating new ideas, and taking pictures.

once Aaron got up we watched a couple of movies and just relaxed.
it was really nice to finally spend sometime with one another and just wind down.


I swear I am not a hoarder. in fact, my desk is my messiest place.
but to answer your question, I have no idea how I get anything done at a desk so covered in crap.
I hope your weekend was the perfect mixture of excitement and relaxing, just like mine was
