An unexpectedly unplanned weekend.

Going into this weekend, I had a semi-busy weekend, with plans or things I’d committed to on Saturday and Sunday. And as I woke up on Saturday, my commitment for the early afternoon got canceled. While it was a bummer (photo shoot for barre n9ne!), I was thrilled to have the whole day completely unplanned from that point forward.

I knocked out a few miles on the ‘mill (partially begrudgingly, I’ll admit!)

I enjoyed a leisurely breakfast of these pancakes (yum, yum, YUM) with M.

A spoiling trip to Lululemon, where M proceeded to buy me far too many cute things for my first day teaching (Tuesday! Ack!!). Seriously spoiled.

I mani pedi’d. (muuuch needed)

I practiced for barre n9ne. (this is pretty much a given every day of late!)

And then, M and I had a date night in, complete with a movie (The Rum Diary…which I do NOT recommend. It was a weird ass movie…though I do enjoy a good Johnny Depp flick!)

Date night in dinner: filet, asparagus, wilted greens, langostino!)


I woke up on Sunday to news that my niece has an ear infection (poor baby!!) and my Sunday plans, birthday afternoon celebration at my dad’s (for his birthday) was postponed.  And that turned into a blessing in disguise, as much as I was looking forward to it, I really needed the time to practice, practice, practice for my class on Tuesday.

So practice I did. More, more, more.

Playlist I made (complete with David Guetta, LMFAO, a few throwbacks, Kat DeLuna, Black Eyed Peas…).

And practice on M I did! And man, did he sweat!! Guess it’s hard enough, right? 😉

And then, I read a book. A real one! (while M worked on his dissertation, which is coming along really well! I am so proud!)

And finally…date night in #2, an unexpected delight. And wow, was it good. Probably one of our best ever.

Arctic char, roasted Brussels sprouts, zucchini and leeks, over wilted greens (sensing a theme here?!) and some risotto I made for M. Best. Meal. Ever.


And that, my friends, was an unexpectedly unplanned, but absolutely glorious weekend. Heading into a week where I have committments almost every single night this week, and a jam-packed weekend (all goodness!), I relished every minute of it.

If you had an unplanned weekend at the last minute, what would you do?

  1. SUCH a perfect weekend, sis. I think every weekend ought to be this unplanned. Or at least every OTHER weekend – y’know, in a perfect world 😉

  5. Sounds like a great, much deserved weekend…with some yummy eats!

    If I had an unplanned weekend I would sleep in for sure (when was the last time that I did this?!), brunch, shop, movie, relax! Lazy stuff that is sometimes good for the mind and soul! I have been on GO, GO, GO for months now!

    1. Lazy sounds perfect! I loved ‘sleeping in’ till about 8 on Sunday…not that late but just right and no alarm clock noise? bliss!
