I had a very busy weekend with very little time for napping (my favorite weekend activity). I need a weekend to recover from my weekend! Despite the no napping it was very fun. Here goes. . .
Friday night I bought my first ever pair of prescription sunglasses. I had a lot of money to use on my Flex Spending (have to use it by the end of March). So I figured I would splurge on some Coach sunglasses. They are nice. Picking them up tonight. It will be so nice to be able to see while I'm driving!
On Saturday Katelyn and I volunteered at the MS Climb to the Top. Have you heard about these events where people climb up the stairs in really tall buildings? I decided volunteering would be less painful! Ha!
The man in the middle of the top left photo was the winner. He actually broke a record for climbing the John Hancock tower faster than anyone ever has (in any event). He came from Austria to do the event and I guess he has done around 80 of these types of events. He climbed 61 flights in just over 6 minutes. Crazy!
Also impressive are the firefighters who do the climb in full gear. That uniform and gear is very heavy (and hot). They were pretty quick too!
The views from the top are beautiful. This was my first time at the top of the John Hancock since I'm pretty sure they closed the observation deck after 9/11. It is a great view but you definitely get a little dizzy looking out those windows. (Extra points if you can spot Fenway Park)!
Since we had to get up at 5:30 to be there at 6:00 AM for volunteering we most definitely deserved delicious brunch afterwards. Katelyn and I went to a nearby restaurant and had a yummy mimosa and waffle w/ strawberries!
On Sunday I had a date with Peyton and Ella. We went to do our annual "bunny" pictures. You'll have to wait until a bit closer to Easter to see the photos. After the pictures we went to lunch at Bertucci's. The girls LOVE this restaurant since they give them dough to play with. Peyton made it into a beard and moustache so of course I had to teach her about the unibrow. Too funny!
Oh and they were both so generous to share their dessert with me - don't be fooled - it was only b/c they didn't want the chocolate ice cream that was swirled with the vanilla. Who doesn't like chocolate ice cream!?
We had a lot of fun doing the pictures, lunch and walking around the mall. The girls love to ride the escalator. We could probably waste an hour doing just that. We stopped into Build-A-Bear after they begged. I told them we were not buying anything. Ella proceeded to say, "This is so boring not buying anything." I guess she hasn't learned about "window" shopping!
Last night I went grocery shopping for some healthy food. Today I start Clean Eating. I did a ton of food prep last night so I would have healthy food to bring to work all week. I need to make some serious changes to my eating habits and today is day 1. I'll let you know how it goes.
And then just like that we are back at Monday. The weekends go by way too fast. This week should be a little less busy than last week so I hope to get back into going to bed early. Staying up until 11:00 PM just doesn't work for me.
Happy Monday! Looking forward to "The Women Tell All" tonight!
