Sectional!

Ah, laziness. I am currently sitting in my pjs, watching Hell's Kitchen, and eating peanut butter spread on french bread. How is it Tuesday and I am already ready for the weekend? Not a good sign.

The weekend was pretty good. We spent Friday night and Saturday at my dad's house, hanging out with Bug and my dad, swimming, and firing up the bbq. It should have been relaxing, but instead I had all this nervous energy. I couldn't sit still and spent the day pacing and acting like a bored teenager. I am not used to just "hanging around." Tragic, huh? According to the fam, I apparently need more practice in the beautiful art of doing nothing. I will have to try and squeeze it in the schedule. (Or, does that defeat the purpose? Hmmm).

The highlight of the weekend is probably the addition of a new member of our little family. No, not a baby . . . a couch!! Well, a sectional to be exact. Our house has been empty since we moved in last October, and we are finally starting to furnish it! The first room we're tackling is the family room. Check it out . . .


Ella likes the new couch.

Ah, but there is such a big wall, you might say. What will we look at while lounging on such a comfy couch? Let's just say, we have a few ideas. :)

Sunday, Jackie, PJ, and Bug came over for a salmon bbq by the pool. The salmon was perfect (good job, Peej) and the sides Jackie picked up from Wood Ranch were fab. (Mmmm . . . sweet smashed potatoes . . .)

Hmm. In other news, I have started working out again. Wow, it's been awhile. I started Week 1 of the Couch-to-5k plan last night. I have done this program before and always thought Week 1 was a breeze. Ha! That was then. Last night, I thought I was going to pass out! Very sad, but hey, I have to start somewhere I suppose.

That's about it for now. Time to watch Chef Ramsey yell at someone . . .

I am back over 150 again. Dejected. I have no one to blame but myself for stuffing my face and not exercising AT ALL. :P

Love the sectional! :)

PB on French toast is such a lean cuisine commercial food. But, it definitely happens. Yay for furnishing the house!

Congrats on the couch. And on the couch to 5k. I'm on week 3 now which I'm doing ok with, but I think week 4 is going to kill me.

3. I totally need to get to working out again. I keep telling myself I'll make time after mid-June. No bueno. You're busy and make time, so no excuses on my part.
