Weekend With Bandster Lunch


The weekend was good, albeit much too short.  I got my water fun in Friday afternoon.  I tread water for a good 20 minutes and then did water sprints in the shallow end with the girls on my back to create more resistance.  I think it was a pretty good workout.

Hubby left for Vegas early Saturday morning so it was just me and the girls.  I spent the morning cleaning the living room and the girls' room.  Then I dropped the girls off at my mom's and set out to Pita Jungle to meet to fabulous AZ bandsters, Jenn and Jen.  Here we are...
Beautiful blondes...Which one of these isn't like the others? Which one of these isn't quite the same?

I admit.  I was pretty nervous.  I generally don't do that great meeting new people but this was totally different.  It's like you already know these people so well by their blogs that it doesn't feel like meeting them for the first time.  I talked too much (When I'm excited, I either get real quiet or REAL chatty...need to find balance...lol) but I had a great time.  Both ladies are just so fantastic and fun and it was a good mix of seasoned bandster meets newer bandster for conversation.  Anyway, I highly recommend that if you find some bloggers near you, meet up sometime.  Totally good experience!  It also made me want to go Chicago even more so I can meet more bandster bloggers in real life but alas the budget still does not permit.

So after a lovely lunch with lovely ladies, I went back to my mom's, went for a swim, had dinner with her, fed the cat I'm pet sitting and headed home.  I watched some Harry Potter and then went to bed.  I didn't sleep particularly well as I always get nervous when Hubby's not there at night.  Then Sunday, my awesome daughters let me sleep in until 8 which was so sweet (and I'm sure very difficult) of them.  We cleaned the kitchen and did 8 million loads of laundry.  We had lunch, went for a swim (you'll see this common theme of being in the water during the summer here in AZ as it's hot as balls outside).  Hubby made it back while we were there and he joined us in the pool.  We had dinner, fed the cat, watched a little "Mystery Diners" that featured a local place by my work and caught "Couples Retreat" which was better than I thought it was.  Off to bed as Hubby was exhausted and I had to be up early for work.  Didn't sleep well again...not sure why.

So now I'm pretty tired this morning but it was a nice weekend...just sad it's over already.  At some point this week, I need to get my daughter her skateboard for her birthday (yes...very scary) and some comic books for my nephew.  He's having surgery this week and he'll be in the hospital over his birthday so trying to find things for him to do that aren't video game related.  I'm also committing to working out every workday again this week.  I made it 4 days last week (perfect since I started on a Tuesday) so I'm aiming for 5 this week.  Hope y'all are having a good Monday!

How about a little DEMotivation?

Meeting fellow bandsters is so much fun. I'm glad you had the opportunity. Keep up the great work on the exercise front. You are doing good.

What a fun and great opportunity to meet up with other bandsters! You guys are so adorable in that pic :)

Jen said...

Loved meeting you as well and you did not talk too much.. you are hilarious!!!
We watched Couples Therapy last night as well.. had seen it before, it's not bad, but not the funniest! Except I crack up with the yoga instructor every time.. "encouragement"..
so, I'm motivated now that you girls are motivating each other to do more than just my pilates! Am planning to walk each night that I don't have pilates and maybe even try to squeeze in some zumba on WEdnesday.. will let you know how it goes!!

Glad you had so much fun, I love the picture of the three of you! I am jealous that you met Jen as she is my roommate at BOOBS this year! LOL

I wish you were coming too. LOL

So awesome!!! It makes such a difference to have a face to face with other bandsters. I can't get my head around all the working out you do in 1,000,000 degree weather??? I can barely go to the mailbox in the heat. Lol!!!
