Hi there, I hope ya’ll had a great weekend! This weekend was/has been (I’m writing this on Sunday night) crazy busy, but so good! By Friday I was feeling like I was in a serious funk (you may have noticed the lack of post last Friday. Sorry, I just couldn’t get it together last week) so Josh and I decided to get out of the house and go on a date night. We headed out for dinner, then went to see La La Land. The first few minutes of the movie had us both worried about what we had gotten ourselves into, but it was actually SO good. Josh may not be willing to admit it, but we both really liked the movie.

On Saturday Josh headed off to work, and I started my day with the hardest Barre class I have done yet. I should mention this was only my fourth class. After Barre, I headed out to play Archery Tag at Archers Arena. I was pretty hesitant about playing since I was already so sore, and it was just me and my guy friends from grade school, who are all very competitive, but once we got into the games it was a heck of a lot of fun. I will admit, when you get hit straight on with one of the arrows from the heavier weight bows, (there are three weight options) it does hurt, but it really wasn’t as bad as I was expecting. If you have played paintball before, you are more than prepared to handle playing this.

That brings us to today, yesterday for those reading this the day it goes live. I was in teaching Sunday School this morning, then met up with Josh after and headed out to grab some coffee and food at a couple of our favourite local restaurants. I wore this outfit to church, then out for the rest of the day. For those of you who are used to wearing your Sunday best, the church I attend would be a big shock to you. I love that it is casual there because that allows me to actually get in on helping with all the messy crafts and the activities without worrying about ruining my clothes. I love finding pieces, and putting together outfits, that are comfortable, stylish, and still very practical, so that I can actually get out and do the things I want to without worrying. The pieces shown here are some of my go-to picks when I know I’m facing a busy day of errands and activities, but still want to be put together enough to not worry about running into someone I know. That may sound like a weird thing to be thinking of, but after Barre on Saturday I ran into the grocery store to pick up a couple items so I could make lunch. I looked like a HOT MESS. I mean seriously, I think I was still half asleep when I grabbed my outerwear. I had on multiple different colour plaid prints, big clunky rain boots, I was sweaty and gross, it was just a mess. As I walked up to grab spinach, I noticed my new boss standing there with a friend. Normally I would have said hi, but I was such as mess and was dreading running into anyone, so I bee lined it in the other direction to get the one other thing I needed. By the time you read this I will have already told her about it, and likely been teased about it by my colleagues. I deserve it haha. Anyhow, my point here is that I think it is important to not leave the house looking like a mess in the name of comfort, because you never know who you are going to run into.

Well that was one long paragraph. If you made it this far, thanks for sticking through that. I am pretty zonked (by that I mean sleepy) while writing this so I really hope I am not rambling on. I hope you all have a fabulous week!
