it's all about Sunday...and a few simple pleasures...

Boy oh boy am I happy to have a "weekend" with Joe after a few weekends of out of town trips. Friday night, I was absolutely fried from the week - thank goodness for the energy of my 8th grade girls at practice on Saturday morning - I barely had the energy to plan practice, but funny how being in the gym with the girls totally brought my energy up. After practice I came home and took a big, long nap which felt so darn good :). Me of year ago probably would have pushed through being tired to get a whole bunch of stuff done - I'm proud of myself for getting a little better at listening to my body. After a mellow evening with Joe with soup and a movie, I woke up feeling like a whole new person this morning. What a difference between Friday Sarah and Sunday Sarah! Hallelujah for Sunday - and what a beautiful one we had today - lots of sunshine pouring in, a day off from exercise, cinnamon bread, tea and Joe - I couldn't ask for much more :).

And because I didn't do anything especially earth -shattering this weekend - here are some of the weekend's simple pleasures (in addition to glorious Saturday afternoon naps, and sweet Sunday morning's with the one ya love :):

1) Friday morning rainbow on the way in to work
2) Friday afternoon walk with Linds
3) Star Wars Episode 2
4) An evite from Joe for Snuggle -o-rama - he actually sent me an evite to snuggle with him on the couch with a movie! How cute is that?
5) Costco rebate checks
6) Free lululemon yoga
7) Greenlees cinnamon bread
8) Quick Frisbee study break
9) Just getting to hang out with Joe for more than 2 hours (even if he was doing homework most of the day - only 4 more months of grad school!! Hallelujah!)
10) Homemade Mac n' Cheese with gruyere and fontina
11) Pics of baby Henry
12) Bridal shower planning for Linds

And I'll leave you with this gem - action shot of Joe on our Frisbee break today.

Happy week everyone!
