There are two words ringing through my head to describe this weekend...
PROUD & HAPPY! =)
~ I was proud of myself for not leaving a circuit training class at my new gym that to be honest I was not in shape enough to do. I should have left when I realized what type of "circuit" class it was...let's just say trampolines, bouncy balls you balance on & me don't mesh well at this point in my fitness journey. But the instructor realized I was in over my head & each exercise circuit she came over to me and gave me a modification to fit my pace. It was a small victory that I held through the hour! ~
My painting w/ acrylics inspired by Alexander Mcqueen's dress above
~ I am proud of myself for being able to paint this lil picture up here. I can't remember the last time I painted or was able to find the perfect inspiration. My friend that I've reconnected with in the past few weeks invited me over to paint and at first I thought it was going to be silly but it wasn't. It made me happy. I can't wait to get a lil frame for my picture! ~
~ Craig and I went to one of my friend's going away party and he dropped the "F" bomb that had my ears buzzing. I was behind him & he was meeting someone new and he said, "There is a brunette around here wearing a red shirt with a bow on it. She's soon to be my fiancee." I said "What?" out loud and he was like "What?" and pretended he didn't say it but he knew I was behind him. These hints are making me happy. Ever so happy. ~
~Also at this going-away party, I saw the cutest gift ever! My friend is going to work in Israel for 6 months so her best friend wrote her a card for almost every event that is going to happen in the next 6 months. A card for when it's raining, when it's valentine's day, when it's her birthday (all the party-goers signed this one), when it's a bad day, and then a couple other scenarios. My friend cried of happiness! It was such a thoughtful gift! ~
~I was proud of my self on Sunday morning that I got up and went to a yoga class. It wasn't hot yoga just normal yoga and wow it was intense! I had no idea it worked you so hard! =) ~
~Craig, me & his mom went out to Ruth Chris for dinner for Craig's upcoming birthday. I was happy to hear about Craig as a little kid. I've learned so much about this man in the past 3 and a half years and I love learning more. They also talked about his father, whom unfortunately I will never get to meet because he passed away a few years before I met Craig. I love that I have been able to paint of picture of the man. ~
Here's hoping this week isn't too bad.
