Rest, Refresh, and Recharge

I am truly loving my new Wednesday night schedule. I didn’t have enough time to workout or bake, but I needed a day to rest anyway. Thanks everyone for the great baking ideas, I plan on making something in the morning!

After work Hubby and I headed over to our favorite pizza joint, the Gourmet Pizza Shop! I ordered my favorite, “That’s a Gouda” minus the cheese. Basically a BBQ chicken pizza with cashews.

We ordered two larger pizzas, because they were having a special and Hubby is all alone this weekend and can use the leftovers :).

I ended up eating one too many pieces, and got TOO FULL!!! I haven’t felt that stuffed in a long time. Thankfully it was early enough so my body could let it settle before the night was over.

After our pizza date I headed over to the BFF’s for Scrapbooking time! Sadly I got a flat tire on the way, but no worries it was fixed in no time (love USAA). I actually got some pages done tonight!!

I love hanging out with friends and doing something productive as well, I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my Wednesday nights!

It’s almost Friday, I am excited because my Boss and I are going to a Women’s Retreat called Time Out for Women”.

“Wouldn't it be nice if life had a pause button and you could spend a couple of days relaxing in the beauty of God's creation? Take a time out from dishes, carpools, work and the busyness of the everyday and escape to the mountains. Enjoy a walk by the creek, sit at the fireside, pamper yourself with a massage or pedicure, soak in encouraging teachings and participate in uplifting worship. We have what you need to rest, refresh, and recharge.”

This retreat couldn’t have come at a more perfect time! I love staying up in the mountains for the weekend it really helps me to refuel and refocus, I can’t wait.

I am Fasting from some sleep tonight by setting the alarm clock for 2am to wake up and pray. This fasting thing is really teaching me a lot!

Oh- I love that you find scrapbooking productive!

Seriously- scrapbooking is such an art (like food) and I always love crossing it off my to-do list when I finally complete a book. :)

And everyone has a day when we have one piece to many. ;)
