Plans for the day (outside of work): Took a trip to the library and went for a little walk at lunchtime, then played some disc golf after work. I also had a quick video chat with friends to plan an upcoming trip before ending the night with Dancing with the Stars.One thing that went unexpected: Our planning "meeting" was actually really productive! Usually they turn into just chatting and catching up, but we actually got a lot planned for our trip and I can't wait.
Best part of the day: The weather was absolutely ideal, so anytime I got to be outside was the best part.
What I wore: The most comfy outfit ever- gray cardigan, white tank, blue pants (technically pajamas but I think they look cute!)
Best thing I ate: An artichoke parmesan galette from Smitten Kitchen's cookbook. Surprisingly easy and fast to cook but so delicious.
Plans for the day (outside of work): North Carolina State Fair and a brewery stop on the way home. The fair was so much fun- I've never been to a big one like that before and it was amazing! We watched a few shows (log run and Cast in Bronze were my favorites), rode the ferris wheel and a flying ride, and wandered around for a few hours.One thing that went unexpected: It was chilly when I woke up so I went for a run with long sleeves- finally starting to feel like fall!
Best part of the day: I loved being at the fair, and the fact that it was a gorgeous day out helped a ton!
What I wore: Jeans, flannel from Target
Best thing I ate: We went to Triangle Brewing Co, and they have a food truck kitchen that had some seriously amazing food. I got brussels sprouts and a salad and they were delicious.
Plans for the day (outside of work): I was supposed to have my first Book Club meeting but it got cancelled last minute, so I checked out Crowder County Park with Selma. I also had a great run at lunchtime.
Best part of the day: I loved visiting the park! I'm still trying to visit all of the ones in my area and this was on my list for a while.
What I wore: Athleta romper (just found it on ThredUP and used fabric dye to change it from light pink to green)
Best thing I ate: Probably a lame answer, but I made Kraft Mac n Cheese for lunch and it really hit the spot.
Plans for the day (outside of work): It was another beautiful day out, so I went for a bike ride and stopped at a pumpkin patch at lunch, then went paddleboarding after work. I also had a video chat with my family to plan for another trip!One thing that went unexpected: Selma actually got on the paddleboard with me and didn't knock me off! We only paddled a little since the water was pretty choppy but it was so fun.
Best part of the day: Being at the lake with perfect weather with basically no one around.
What I wore: Lululemon tank and leggings, long and cozy cardigan
Best thing I ate: Crab-stuffed tilapia that I got at the store a few days ago, with some cole slaw and baked beans.
Plans for the day (outside of work): Early start to the day with a 4 mile run and sunrise yoga with my friend Erica at the art museum. We had the most incredible sunrise so the early wake up call (5 AM!) was worth it. I also planned a (virtual) work happy hour since I haven't seen or caught up with my coworkers in a while, and caught up on Great British Bake Off while baking this week's challenge.One thing that went unexpected: Actually waking up on time? I've been so sleepy lately and have had a hard time waking up early, so I was shocked to actually get up early enough to run with Erica..and not be exhausted.
Best part of the day: Sunrise yoga! One of the highlights of my week whenever I can make it.
What I wore: Lightweight sweater and white jeans (a little risky since I was baking with a lot of chocolate but they stayed clean).
Best thing I ate: I made a quick fried rice with some random things in the fridge but it tasted SO good. Not sure I could even replicate it if I tried but it was so tasty.
