Hi! Happy Tuesday, friends!
How is it already June….and even crazier, how is it my last week of work?! I feel like this year just flew by and with all of my May trips (Israel and the USA), the end came quickly. Despite still having a few days of work left, the days feel like the weekend and the weekends feel amazing.
Thursday was a bit crazy- I went to work an hour earlier than usual and then quickly rushed home to scarf down food and run right out the door to teach a lesson and then head to training for a new job! Details coming soon 😉 After the training, I met Luis and we headed to his house for the best salad in the world. We started organizing our upcoming trip to ITALY which I am so very excited about!
I accidentally planned it during my beloved Body Combat hour, but I will get there this week. After the lesson (which was awesome!), I headed straight home to make a batch of mango salsa and then get ready to teach a few English lessons online (also a new job!!). The students didn’t come to class (but I still get paid, so I was able to get some work done on the computer). As soon as the classes were finished, I changed and met up with my good friend Emily who returned to the US this weekend (***big tears***). I love her crazy stories hahaha. We had an “iced” coffee, which was hot coffee with two generous ice cubes. The weather this last week has been up to and over 100*!!! That coffee was mildly refreshing.
Once I got home, I hung out on the sofa, took a little nap, and then headed out to the third potluck of the year with this amazing MuchBites group! They are such a fun crowd and I laughed pretty much the whole night.
Everyone brought salady and munchy type food, which was perfect for this crazy heat. Plus, a few bottles of wine helps you forget about the pain 😉
Saturday was off to a slooooow start due to the aforementioned heat and not being able to sleep. I had breakfast and then went back to bed for some zzz’s. When I got up, Kimber and I did the crazy and went for a run for 20 minutes and then headed to my gym for a 30 minute NTC workout!
I put that in quotes because, well, there was nothing BBQ’ed 😉 Leave it up to boys to plan a BBQ and not BBQ anything, but there was lots of pizza!
Then we headed to a park for some botellon action (drinking in the park) #classy
We stayed out quite late, so Sunday was another slow start!
I have way too may bagels that have been in my freezer for a good 8 months, so I told Kimber to help me eat them. Luis also begrudgingly agreed to join us, and I gotta say- I think his first brunch experience was positive.
Full from tortilla, I did the logical thing and put on my bathing suit to spend some time at the pool with Luis. 104* is NO JOKE. And we went at 7:30 pm!! It was hot hot hot and the sun was super strong! It wiped me out and I’ve been feeling quite groggy since… but it was an AMAZING weekend and no matter how old I get, I think summer weekends will always give me this amazing sense of freedom.
