Well, another weekend has come & gone. If only this weekend were last weekend & I had tomorrow off. I sure could use it!
Time to re-cap some weekend activities!
I mentioned in yesterday’s post that I had a busy few days on the agenda. First thing Saturday morning, I headed off to spin class, then to get my nails done. Afterwards, I had to make a quick stop at the grocery store to pick up a fruit tray for Chris & I to bring to his mom’s birthday celebration, which was last night. Before heading home, I made a quick pit-stop at Starbucks for one of my favorite breakfasts:
Last night’s dinner was at Hartefeld National in Avondale, & while I didn’t snap any photos, here’s a quick run-down of the tasty meal that was enjoyed:
- Winter Fruit Salad – baby spinach, sliced apples, pears, cranberries, cashews, shredded gruyere, honey buttermilk vinaigrette
- Mushroom Ravioli – with grilled vegetable ratatouille, blush sauce
Of course there was cake for dessert too, & I happily enjoyed a piece as my one sweet for the day.
When all was said & done, I finally got to sleep around 12:00, & couldn’t have been more excited to catch some Z’s.
However, I was up early this morning to get some research paper grading underway. For fuel, I enjoyed the following:
After breakfast, the usual Sunday activities ensued: church, meal planning, Target & the grocery store with Chris, laundry, etc. As I was working through my to-do list, I enjoyed a few snacks to keep me energized, one of which was a smoothie:
Eventually, though, I got tired of snacking & got to work preparing a real meal:
Finished off with a single piece of chocolate:
Now, I need everyone’s opinion! As I was sitting down to lunch today (just a quick meal of a pb+j with a side of baked chips), I mentioned to Chris that I could really go for a soda. When I was deciding what to give up for Lent, soda didn’t seem like it would be such a big deal, but now I’m craving it more than ever!
Chris’s response to me? “Well it is Sunday.” I had never heard of the Sunday “loophole” for Lent until I started dating Chris. Apparently, Sunday functions as sort of a “cheat day,” where you’re able to indulge in whatever you’ve decided to give up for the 40 days of Lent.
Like I said, I had never heard of this until I met Chris, & I refrained from using that as my “excuse” to have a soda today, but I’m curious to hear your thoughts.
Have you ever heard of Sunday being a “free” day during Lent?
