Weekend Recap: Recovery Weekend

Woo, does summer kick anyone else’s bootay? I swear, I absolutely LOVE summer, but once it gets here, I feel so overwhelmed with things to do that I didn’t do the rest of the oh … 9 months of the year. 🙂

Anyways, let’s chat about the weekend!

On Friday, I worked from home because I was still trying to get over some sort of stomach bug. Ben thinks I’ve just worked myself into such an anxious tizzy that it’s actually THAT and not a flu. Either way, it was nice to work from home (I get so much more done!) + hang out with Cora all day. She’s the best assistant.

Weekend Recap: Recovery WeekendFriday night we hung out at Ben’s apartment and walked to get ice cream with his roommate at Jeni’s. I got dark chocolate and vanilla, which was really good, but I only ate half of it because I wasn’t trusting my stomach.

Weekend Recap: Recovery WeekendSaturday morning Ben went to work and I got Cora all corralled up in the car to go to the vet. She’s been sick for the last few weeks (eating a diet of rice and boiled chicken) plus she needed her second round of shots. We got another round of antibiotics, probiotics, a shot in the butt and strict directions on how to get her back on normal dog food. I think this dog has decided she wants to be like her human mama and have lots of stomach issues.

Once we got home, I had a little time alone with her, so while she napped, I watched my coach’s video – highly recommend!

Then Ben came over and we hung out with him for the afternoon, taking a few walks (Cora still can’t go to public parks or around many dogs, which makes it difficult in the city) and hanging out on the couch.

I MEAN, THAT FACE.

Ben suggested going out for dinner, so we walked to a new spot called La Scarola, a unique hole-in-the wall Italian spot for dinner. It was so good! Plus, it was really nice to get out alone with Ben and have some quality time. Plus, two glasses of wine for this lightweight = me professing my love to him while sitting at dinner. Oh, alcohol. 😉 At least it makes me lovey, right?

Sunday we woke up pretty late, played around with Cora (who was much less lethargic and ready to go CRAZY this morning) and took her for a walk. She loves Benjamin …

Weekend Recap: Recovery WeekendBen made me breakfast and then we headed off to Starbucks to get some work done. Since I was sick a bit, I barely got any work for my brand done (or for my clients), but take a look at my *started* website!

After SB, Ben and I made a quick stop at Pet Supplies Plus to pick up Cora some sensitive stomach food (plus a long leash so we can take her to a park after her next round of shots and a ball because PUPPY). Since we were close, we made a last-minute decision to stop at Jewel-Osco (a grocery store in the city) to pick up the fixins’ for burgers.

Weekend Recap: Recovery WeekendWe hung around at Ben’s place with Teressa (his roommate/cousin & my friend) for a few hours until she left for a BBQ. I showered at Ben’s (since it’s now been a WEEK without gas at my apartment – my landlord is shi*), finished up some work for my client, Brittney, and then wrote up this blog post while Ben played some video games.

The rest of the evening was spent getting things organized for my week and scheduled out – it’s going to be a busy week! I’m going to try to get back into early morning workouts + YouTube + a blogging schedule + work schedule + full-time job … and this week is Ben’s birthday and I have a few commitments after work! Going to be a busy one.

How was your weekend?

    I watched that video and then got sucked into Amy’s other videos. Now she’s going on a hiatus! haha Figures. I’ll just watch old videos in the meantime. I love her personality.
