Not feeling it + ready for paint + mmmm wine

This week has flown by. I cannot believe today is Friday. I told someone at the gym yesterday  that it was Monday (it was Thursday). My brain is out of it this week. I did not feel like going to the gym yesterday. I was tired, needed to work on the house/grade/write/pack, but I knew I would feel better after working out, so I sucked it up and made myself go. I was SO thankful I went, like always. I took this picture before going in. I was bundled up and enjoying the heat on high in my car.

After the gym, I met Jake over at the house to finish priming some woodwork. Some of our woodwork was stained wood and the stain was coming through the original primer I bought, so we got some oil-based primer and went over all of the stained woodwork again. It helped so much! We are now officially ready for paint, which we are doing today! It’s finally happening!

After we finished the priming, Jake went to work and I came back to the apartment to pack. I worked on packing the kitchen. Everything is packed except the things we will use between now and our move. I think we will be eating a lot of sandwiches…

While I packed, I also made dinner – cod, sweet taters, and salad. Jake stopped by the apartment and grabbed a plate of this goodness, too.

Bota Box is one of our favorite wines, but it can be dangerous! It’s so easy to refill your glass too many times…

Friday morning started with 6 miles with Becca and Rhea! We chatted the whole time we ran and just enjoyed moving a little bit. I am SO thankful for my running girls.

I was so hungry on my drive home after my run that I felt like I was going to throw up. It was bizarre. I made breakfast the second I got home and it helped so much. Maybe I ate dinner too early last night? I even had a piece of pumpkin pie before bed…who knows!

I am going to the gym in a little bit, then the rest of my day will be spent at our house painting! I cannot wait to see the rooms all painted. Everything already looks so much better. Once we paint, I will share some before and afters.

Happy Friday, friends!

      Hi, Amanda! I’m so glad – thank you!! Oh my gosh, yes…I got it from Sam’s. I LOOOVE it. It’s so cozy and a little bit more lightweight than other sweatshirts. I’m not sure if they still have them, but that’s where I got it!
