I am filled with so much gratitude after this weekend <3 <3 <3 I’ve been studying the law of attraction for the past few weeks and think that there is a lot of truth to it. I believe that the vibrations you send out attract like vibrations that come right back to you.
To top it off, I think I’ve started to experience the “Pink Cloud.”
In case you don’t know, the pink cloud in addiction is a term used to describe a curious phenomenon in one’s recovery odyssey. It means to be high on life. Many people after detox feel too good about their recovery as they’re finally able to see the real world.
In my car, driving in the sun, with the music blasting, all weekend…. permagrin— JUST joyous and happy feelings.
Friday night was lovely. Hubby mowed while my oldest son and I went to grab dinner and snacks. I got a delicious new drink and had a truly “happy” happy hour sipping it outside. It’s the little things 🙂
Saturday was even better. We started it out with a friendly family game in the morning. My youngest wanted to play (which is totally rare so we jumped at the opportunity). Cards are always a fun way to start and end the day 🙂
Next, a local business that I follow on Facebook shared that if you text SPRING to a number, you get a coupon for Lowes that is anywhere from $5-$500. I tried it and got a $100 coupon! We went later and had a lovely lunch date, then got a fire top for our table at Lowes. It was $136 so we got it for $36. SCORE! After Lowes we hit a local Goodwill that I had never been to. I spent quite a bit of time looking at books but really found some treasures (if I haven’t mentioned it before, I have a hard core book addiction..).
To top off this wonderful day, Jules and I went to my favorite park by the river and walk/ran 4 miles. I ran a 15 minute mile which I haven’t done in like a year (I am a sloth). It was wonderful to run through the trails and be with nature. Gosh I love springtime!!
Sunday was a fabulous day too. I had booked a complimentary mini facial at Aveda and makeup demo. The facial was awesome. When it was time for the make up I told her I don’t wear much and like natural colors. I wasn’t completely happy with the results, and thought I looked like a drag queen. It was ok though, I had to use the restroom, but there was a few little boys using the women’s (I know this because they didn’t lock the door and I walked in on them– OOPS) so I used the mens. Sorry, but I couldn’t hold it for another second and now we can use whatever bathroom we want, plus I looked like a tranny anyways– so it was fine. On a side note, when I got home and my boys saw me, they laughed. It’s ok, I laughed too.
After Aveda, I went to Vegfest. Vegfest is a vegan festival with vendors, lectures, speakers and food. The last time I went, I went with my hubby. I went alone today and it was nice to do what I want and not have to worry about anyone. I bought some excellent books (most were only $5!) and met Alicia Silverstone. I had a jackfruit sandwich that was to die for. I’ve been strictly vegetarian (mostly vegan) for several weeks now and think I’m ready to take the plunge into sole veganism.
After Vegfest I came home to some family over (brother in law, nephew, other sister and brother in law and niece). It was nice, they played croquet while my SIL and I chatted by the fire top table and listened to music. Also, it was supposed to snow like 3-4 inches last night (we were all dreading it) but it ended up just raining. So, no snow today and it ended up being a warm sunny day that was such an unexpected treat.
Lastly, hubby and I went for a short bike ride. We usually go around 10 miles and it’s like an hour workout. We only went about 4, but it was so nice to get out there. The perfect end to the perfect weekend!
So now it’s Sunday night almost 9:30 pm and I’m still wound up and reeling over all of the excitement. I hope I can sleep at a decent hour, I really want to get up early to work out tomorrow. Can’t think of a better way to start my Monday!
C’est la belle vie <3 <3 <3
