What a weekend ya’ll.
When I started this blog called, The Real Life RD, I wanted to illustrate that life as an RD ain’t all carrot sticks, early morning workouts, and meal-plan-and-prepare-food-for-the-week-ahead on Sundays.
That’s all cool and great and stuff, but I’m human too and that includes weekends where you drink one too many drinks, eat cookies instead of carrots, and wake up at 10am on a Saturday with a pesky hangover.
It was a fabulous weekend.
So much love, good friends, great food, tasty drinks, and holiday cheer!
Andy and I hosted our first Christmas party together on Friday and it was so much fun. On Friday, I got home from work at noon and began baking twelve dozen cookies, cleaning the house, and then Andy came home and we pulled everything together right in the nick of time….as in the party was suppose to start at 8 and at 8:12 we were still getting ready. Who shows up on time anyways?
We had a full house of our closest friends. Old friends and new friends and people becoming friends and it was just great. Andy created a DIY photo booth station that people actual used, there were zero broken glasses, and almost every single cookie got eaten. Party success I’d say.
Saturday morning on the other hand…wasn’t so successful. At 10am I crawled out of bed with a nasty little headache and beelined it to the kitchen to chug water and make some scrambled eggs. I was starving. And then Andy and I laid on the couch all day watching movie after movie. It was awesome.
At 4pm we finally decided we should probably move so we met Kelly for a 4 mile walk down at Riverview Park. And man, fresh air made everything better. We came home to eat Chipotle, and then our friends down the street were having a Christmas party so we went there Saturday night. More good times! We got home, snacked on chips and guac, leftover cookies, and bananas and PB late night and crashed into bed.
And Sunday we attempted to pull our lives back together.
Made it to the grocery, took a glorious afternoon nap, did laundry, cooked and cleaned, did some yoga, plowed through my overflowing inbox and by 9pm I was ready for bed.
It was a boozy, late night, lazy day weekend filled with so many laughs. So much happiness. So much delicious sugar. And lots of good times. There are plenty more Christmas parties on the calendar so let the festivities continue!
Oh, how I love this season.
I can eat kale tomorrow.
