It's been awhile since I last did a weekend recap, so I thought that I'd share one today. I always like reading them on other blogs and getting a sneak peak into someone else's life.
I had bought these Fila shoes on Zulily at the end of January, and they finally arrived. I can't remember where I first read about Zulily, but I'm so glad I did. While they don't have stuff that I'm interested in most of the time, every once in awhile I find a great deal on something that I've had my eye on for awhile. I managed to get these shoes for half the price that they usually are. Can't go wrong saving some money.
Friday night was date night, so I headed over to my boyfriend's place. We ended up ordering Chinese food on Skip the Dishes, drinking a beer or two, and watching The Burbs on Netflix. It was my first time trying lemon chicken and it was so good! I can't believe it's taken me 35 years to give it a try. I thought this glass of his was pretty cool. It's made from an old beer bottle. How cool is that? Although I know The Burbs is a silly movie, it makes me laugh every single time I watch it. It's probably my favorite Tom Hanks movie. He looks so young in it!
Speaking of Netflix, they recently added Gossip Girl, at least here in Canada. I used to watch it sporadically when it was on TV. I'm looking forward to watching it from the beginning. It's one of those shows that doesn't take a lot of brain power to watch, but still holds your attention. Plus it's fun to see all the pretty fashion. And for the record, the phones that they show (in the first season at least) all seem so old, yet it was only back in 2012. It's crazy to think how quickly technology changes.
Saturday also included getting some laundry done and some behind the scenes blogging stuff. If I didn't have a blog of my own, I never would have thought that it was as much work as it actually is.
Sunday morning I reached a pretty big milestone – I've now meditated 500 minutes since I've started using the Headspace app. The vast majority of that has been since January 1 2018. Back when I first started meditating for 5 minutes seemed like forever and I'd always get distracted thinking about literally anything. I've grown a lot though, and I'm now regularly doing 15 minutes at a time. That probably still doesn't seem very long for people who are meditation pro's, but for me it's a huge accomplishment. If you've been thinking about giving meditation a try, I highly recommend trying out Headspace.
I also spend some time doing some deep cleaning. Let's just say that you don't realize how disgustingly dusty your house is until you start moving furniture. While it was definitely a lot of work, it feels so good to know that the place is cleaner now.
