Hope everyone has had an enjoyable weekend! We certainly have had some good times this weekend.
Friday my weekend started earlier in the day with some tax free weekend shopping with my friend Gracie. We headed to Old Navy for some good deals and some new Pixie Pants (my fave!).
We also stopped into Target to pick up a couple of things, including some lounge chairs to add to my classroom.
Friday night Cody met up with some of the guys from small group to visit a couple of breweries in town while us ladies got together at our apartment for some wine, snacks, and girl chat while we watched the Olympic opening ceremony.
Saturday morning I started my day with a coffee date with a fellow blogger and Iowan turned Charlestonian, Rachel from The Latte Budget. After that I headed to Walmart to pick up school supplies I needed for this school year and also checked out some pillows and rugs to add to the lounge area of my classroom with the chairs from Target. I still have a few things to pick up but I’m pretty much set on supplies for the start of the school year.
The rest of Saturday was pretty chill with a workout and some usual planning every weekend has.
We ate some yummy crispy cheddar chicken and green beans for supper then took Cooper for a nice long walk. (Made a little too much sauce and needed to use it lol)
After our family walk, Cooper was worn out and cuddled with us while we watched some HIMYM. Officially into Season 8!
Today we decided to watch the early church service online so we could head to Sullivan’s Island for some beach time before it got really hot.
We came home in time to make some lunch then this afternoon has been nice to hang out, watch some Olympics, and work on the blog. Remember to check out and like Passionately Southern’s Facebook page!
Tonight we are going to video chat with both sets of parents, which is awesome! And I’m hoping to head to bed at a decent time since tomorrow I head back to school for our week of inservice before the kiddos come back to school.
To wrap up, here is your weekly dose of Cooper! I took this Friday night when he was hanging out with the ladies. How cute is he?!
Questions for You:
How do you spend the last part of the summer?
What is your favorite thing to watch at the Olympics?
If you are a teacher, how do you prepare for the upcoming school year?
Here is our meal plan for the week:
Sunday – Spaghetti
Tuesday – Slow Cooker Pulled BBQ Chicken with Sweet Potato Fries
Wednesday – Crunchy Taco Homemade Hamburger Helper
Thursday – On our own (I have freshmen orientation at night) … maybe pizza??
Friday – Egg Sausage Casserole (my mother-in-law’s recipe)
Saturday – Vegetable Beef and Rice Soup
I think I’m going to give my bootcamp workouts a break for a bit and for my workouts I will do a mix of cardio, TurboJam, Zumba, and weight lifting. Cody and I are going to do a trial at 9 Round Kickbox Fitness to see if we like it. We are also considering becoming members at Planet Fitness to have a place away from home to work out.
I’m also going to go back to tracking my food and macronutrients with MyFitnessPal (friend me if you use the program!) to get back into a healthy lifestyle as school starts back up.
Any meals on your plan you are excited about this week?
