Our weekends have been quite different around here recently since we can’t go out for drinks or eat out at restaurants while we’re doing our “challenge”. As much as I miss Friday night drinks and yummy food, it’s forced us to get creative with our date nights and we’ve been a lot more active overall. It’s amazing the things you can get done on a Sunday when you’re not glued to the couch with Netflix and a pizza.
Ed always has off of work on Fridays and I usually get out in the early afternoon. After he picked me up, he told me he had a fun little excursion to Ceramicafe planned. I’ve dropped hints now for several weeks/months that an activity like this would be fun, and I guess he finally picked up on my signals!
I am by no means an artist, but I was still excited to get a little creative and paint something all by myself. I chose to paint a mug to add to my already overflowing mug collection. Ed decided to paint a spoon holder since it’s actually something we need in our kitchen. I hate putting cooking spoons down on the dirty countertop.
What we thought would only take an hour or 2 tops actually turned into a 3-4 hour project. Apparently, we are REALLY bad at painting and it took us quite a while to figure it all out. We were both super concentrated on our projects and I think we only said about 2 words to each other the entire time.
I can’t wait to see what my mug looks like once it’s glazed though! I’ll be sure to post a pic.
After the wildness that was our Friday night, we woke up bright and early on Saturday to get in a run around Mission Bay before Ed had to go to work. Loved running here – there were lots of people out and a bunch of yoga/stroller bootcamp classes going on.
After we got back home, I spent much of the rest of the day like this:
Only I was slightly more productive than Corrina and got some work done too.
On Sunday, we partook in our usual activities of grocery shopping and meal prepping. After all of that jazz was done, we headed back to Mission Bay to enjoy a bonfire and grill some skewers! It was the day for it – just warm enough for a light sweater/hoodie.
We grilled chicken skewers with peppers and onions on the bonfire and played a couple of rounds of baseball while the sun was setting.
It was a perfect little Sunday afternoon/evening filled with lots of relaxation and preparation for the week ahead!
What did you guys do this weekend?
