It’s funny to me how my weekend recap posts are by far some of the most popular ones I share. This can be attributed to one of two things – Mondays are just good blog traffic days or people really are just curious about how I spend my weekends. If it’s the latter, I feel like I’m bound to disappoint. Most of my weekends are pretty basic and normal. Exciting things only happen when we’re travelling or have visitors!
Despite this, you guys keep coming back for more, even when all I talk about is how we kept it low-key. Thanks for that!
Here’s a day-by-day breakdown of our low-key weekend!
This Friday night was more productive than last Friday.
After Vishnu left for work around 6 pm, I figured out how to connect my phone to a bluetooth speaker he was gifted for Doctor’s Day (I didn’t learn about this day until after it passed…oops!). I then picked a “Girls Night Out” Spotify playlist and cleaned (and danced) my little heart out!
Excuse our dusty table…this was taken pre-cleaning!
After I finished cleaning and showering, I did a very adult thing and reviewed all of our financial accounts and made an appointment with a financial adviser to talk about my 401k account. I also ran some calculations on my student loans to see if we can pay them off sooner rather than later. I’ll be honest, while I’m not a personal finance expert by any means, I do find all of this stuff interesting. Well, most of it anyways!
Before the end of the night, I also finished a few other computer errands (things that require a computer and the internet), did a load of laundry, and painted my nails.
Not an exciting Friday night but a low-key one for sure!
I had big plans for my Saturday morning. I wanted to get up at 6:30, go to the gym, shower, and be ready to go to Trader Joe’s as soon as Vishnu got home.
Soooo…that’s not exactly what happened.
I woke up at 7:45 when Vishnu got home. I then sat on the couch and talked to Vishnu for the next two hours before finally showering and getting ready for the day. I postponed my grocery run and actual run to Sunday. And I chose to spend my afternoon at a local coffee shop writing my wedding speech (draft one is done!).
Plans?! What plans?
Truth be told, I’ll take some good quality Vishnu time any day. So there’s that!
The rest of the day was just as low-key as the morning. I came home from the coffee shop to a quiet apartment and took advantage of that time to relax on the coach with a book. When that got old, I watched a couple of episodes of Friends.
Once Vishnu was up, we got ready and went to dinner at Zaytoon Grill, a newish Greek restaurant that I’ve been wanting to try.
The restaurant itself is located in a very unassuming strip of shops. Once inside, you’re greeted by a few tables and an open kitchen. Looks aside, the food here was really good. We ordered the Zaytoon sampler to start. It came with falafel, pita bread, and three different dips (hummus, babaghanoush, and something called foule). Delicious and very filling! So much so that I didn’t order an entree for myself. I was stuffed! Vishnu ordered a chicken shawarma wrap and said that it definitely hit the spot!
Sunday started off with a quick trip to Trader Joe’s. I hate to admit this, but I’ve fallen off the meal planning bandwagon over the past few weeks. And the meals I do end up making aren’t all that great in my opinion. Hope to jump back on this week!
Believe it or not, the rest of the day was even more low-key than Friday and Saturday. I went to the gym, made a few snacks for the week, did blog work, helped Vishnu with some of his medical licensing stuff, and went for an evening walk to get some Starbucks (!).
With that, happy MONDAY!
Tell me – what did you get up to this weekend?
