A WEEKEND LIKE THAT...


deserves a post dedicated to it.
Much like some of you, Ohio had a break in it's winter madness for 60 degree temps this weekend and
that means that everyone (and I mean everyone) was out enjoying it. I can't tell you how refreshing it was!

 Let's break down the events of this glorious weekend and what's been going on around here lately....

By the way, if you have the Insta follow me at-katiewkrysh
It's kinda my favorite.

 Friday night was me and Billy's date night. His hockey has picked up so date nights aren't as easy to come by like they had been the past month or so! We went out to dinner and drank wine at the house together and managed to make it to bed before midnight (see also: granny status). 

{did the half moon manicure (love) and was decked out in purple for my run}

 I've been trying to stick my goals (see this post or simple version-clean eating and working out 4-5 per week) and since the weather was amazing Saturday morning, I went for 5 mile run outside at my favorite park! 


It.was.awesome and also made me wish for warm weather year round. Darn you southerners. ;) Afterwards, I made a new yummy juice with: strawberries, 1 beet, carrots, spinach, and an apple. A lot of you have been asking this-you can't really taste the beet. The juice is more sweet then anything else. I've been skipping the coffee and instead doing green tea and/or juicing in the mornings and I haven't missed it at ALL! It's crazy how much energy juicing gives you.


We also decided to take advantage of the nice weather and cooked out on our deck for lunch then took a nap with the sliding door open after. Oh myyyy lordy...it was FABULOUS! Napping with the windows/doors open is one of those little things that doesn't get enough praise as it should. That's for sure.

Billy's cousin was in town Saturday night, so for the first time in months we actually went out downtown (I don't even really remember the last time-cue "you know you're old when....") to meet up with him and his friends. Sunday was spent relaxing, cleaning up the house, and then my best friend Lindsay's parents had us over for dinner. They are so incredibly sweet because they always include me and Billy as a part of their family. Love them so much.
 

Tonight I'm dragging Ashley to my favorite spin class with me to get our butt kicked.
I've found that making Monday's one of my hardest workout days is a great way to get it out of the way so I'm not dreading it later on in the week.

Also, if you haven't yet-download this song for your workouts. :)

 How did you spend your weekend? Have you tried juicing yet?
If not-get on it!
Make it a marvelous monday!

xo.

  16. Did you guys get any of our rain? We were having a torrential downpour yesterday! I am in love with your purple shoes and top...purple is one of my favorite colors :) All your recent talk about spin, combined with the fact that a new spin studio recently opened near my barre studio, is making me want to take a class again! I haven't been to spin in ages but its great cardio....and I hate running, soooo. Yeah :P

  17. Looks like you had an amazing weekend. I have a black and white striped blazer very similar to that one that I've never worn because I have NO IDEA how to style it. Love that look - I might have to invest in some ripped jeans.
