I hope everyone had a good first weekend of the new year! Mine was a good mix of relaxation mixed with things to do.
I only work 1/2 a day in the mornings on Friday, so after that, I came home, made lunch, and did a Zumba workout on my Wii. Hubby came home and we drove down to Bloomington, had dinner at Chick Fil A, and did a little shopping at the Mall of America. Ok, so I've had this quest for a couple weeks for a black vest. Nothing too puffy, but something thin, but warm for the winter (especially since it's been -15 or so the past couple days for a high!). We literally looked all over on New Year's Day. So I looked at a couple stores at the Mall with no luck. We went over to REI and I found this vest! It's not down filled, but it's thin and super warm! It was more than I usually spend on a piece of clothing, but it's a good investment piece and I've worn it every day since I got it! So I think it's worth it :)
My sister-in-law and I signed up at a local fitness studio. They had a holiday special on punch cards, so we did our first Zumba class yesterday! It was a lot of fun- didn't even feel like a workout! I did some grocery shopping later that day, some cleaning, then we had our neighbors over for drinks and chatting.
