Yesterday ended up being so much fun! Very relaxing and a perfect weekend day!
I started the morning by taking Rocky on a walk.
Then I went on a bike ride. A friend is out of town and letting me borrow her road bike while she’s gone so I can get a taste of it (my current bike – the one I did all my training on for my triathlon – is a hand-me-down mountain bike!)
Very nice – it’s really making me think about saving my pennies for a “real” bike like this one!
After the bike ride I took a shower and ran a couple quick errands before heading over to a friends’ house with a cooler of food and drinks and plans to just lay out poolside and relax all afternoon. It was a fun time!
Then Chris & I came home and decided to do burger sliders for dinner!
I know sliders have been around oh….forever now, but for some reason we’ve NEVER made them at home before! If there’s one thing I love with my food its variety. So when I saw the slider buns at the store, I knew burgers presented the perfect opportunity for some variety in our usual ho-hum dinner routine!
Back: regular burger with pickles, onion, lettuce, cheese, ketchup & mustard
Middle: BBQ bacon cheese burger with sauteed onions and jalapenos
Front: Blue cheese burger slathered in blue cheese!
It was freaking delicious! The buns were potato bread…I usually try to stick to whole grain buns but this was a special treat!
This morning I woke up and made myself a pot of coffee using a new-to-me coffee flavor that I’ve never tried before: Hawaiian Hazelnut
Verdict = DELICIOUS! Its so rich it tastes like a dessert!
I went on another long bike ride before I have to return the bike, and then I made out a Summer Time To-Enjoy List. Have you heard of these? I saw Heather talk about it after she saw Lindsay talk about it. I thought it was such a fun and good idea! I always dream about doing fun things over the summer, but it’s nice to make out a list and actually figure out when all those things are going to occur because some require planning!
You’ll notice that several of the items already have “check-marks”! I hope to add several more!
Some of the things on my To Enjoy List:
Fun Fitness things: hiking, tennis, long walks with Rocky,
Relaxing things: pool-lazing, magazine reading, Salt River Tubing, Outdoor Film Series
and many more…
I try not to stress if I can’t make everything happen, but this way I have something tangible to hang on the fridge and if I have free time I can look and see if there’s something I can do from my “enjoy” list!
This afternoon I’m hitting up my favorite yoga class and maybe enjoy some time reading. It’s been such a great and relaxing weekend…just what I needed!
Hope you’re all having a great weekend!
Have you ever heard of the “To Enjoy” List? Have you made one?
Do you prefer flavored coffee or “regular” coffee?
