80's Party Recap & Enjoying Sunday

80's Palooza Recap
I should probably actually say what the 80's Palooza (official party name) was for. It was for a friend's 40th birthday that was actually last month. Stephanie is a long-time friend. She actually helped take some of our wedding pictures. So, you asked for pictures, so here they are:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Leg Day
Today I woke up around 7:15 thinking it was a lot later than it was. I tried to go back to sleep, but only managed another hour. I knew we had lots on the to-do list today, so I got on up. Around 10 we hit the gym. I decided to go for a heavy leg workout today. It was super windy out, not exactly calling for a run. I warmed up on the elliptical for 10 minutes then I did 3x8 unless noted:

Squats - 4x8
Plie squats
Stiff-legged deadlifts
Step ups
Deadlifts 3x6
Calf raises 3x15
Walking lunges

I finished with 5 more minutes on the elliptical and called it done. I felt like I had a really good, really strong workout. I have a feeling that tomorrow, hovering will not be possible.

Just Enjoying
After getting cleaned up, we headed out to run some errands. I was happy to stop by Home Depot to get some plants for all the pots in the back yard. I was going to pick up vegetable plants, but we needed to get manure for the garden beds and

Jason refused to put that in my car. So, hopefully we can get that this week and finally get veggies planted. We've never waited this late.

We ended up going to a great little Irish Pub for a patio lunch. That somehow seemed to trump the need for groceries. We'll get to those tomorrow I suppose. It was just way to gorgeous out to not sit and enjoy for a bit.

I do feel like I've been way too lazy on the weekends when it comes to errands and chores. But then I think, life's too freaking short to be worried about such things. I know they have to get done, and they will, but I want to enjoy my weekends more than I want to do laundry. I did get laundry done actually. Just little by little. The house got dusted, the floors swiffered, and plants got planted. We got in workouts and we enjoyed time with friends and each other. That's how it should be.

So did you take full advantage of your weekend?
