Feasting On Life
Lovelies! I’ve missed you! It has been an insanely beautiful, wonderful, blissful weekend that my friends and I needed after a challenging first week back in school. So for the past 48 hours, we’ve been doing what we do best: feasting on life.
It all started Friday morning when I felt gorgeous rays beaming through my bedroom windows. I read for a while, paid some bills and made breakfast:
Then I was off to Theater History. Discussion sessions with theater majors are intensely amusing.
I then skipped to the gym for an hour of intervals on the elliptical, 200 sit-ups on a stability ball (100 with weights) and weighted squats. I was all about the big numbers that day, I guess.
I called my little Banana to see whether she wanted to join me for some basking in the sunshine. She accepted, and while I waited for her to pop over, I snacked:
The background of this picture cracks me up. Memory card for my camera, books, sunglasses, cell phone, bobby pin, mace…the single-girl essentials.
And then Banana and I were huge divas in the sunlight:
Pardon my garbage.
After having unprotected sun, Banana and I headed in to get ready for the night. We were faced with something very challenging for a vegetarian. Is it OK to kill a wasp when it’s inside your house?
For this veg-head, it is:
As I made dinner for B and I, someone cruelly photographed my sacred wrapping process:
We scooted around town in our heels all night. It was fantastic. Might go in my “Top Five Fave Nights in Athens” list. If I had one, that is. It’s hard not to have an amazing time when I’m with these beauts, though:
Saturday morning/afternoon, Muffin spent time with her familia, and Banana and I spent time at Casa Lopez:
My egg days may be over. They started to make me gag. There’s also a big ethical battle in my head when I eat them, but we’ll see what happens.
I didn’t do much in the afternoon other than watch five episodes of Sex and the City, fail at napping and pester Muffin until she came over. My girl’s so good to me that she even brought me dinner:
Between bouts of gossiping and grinding, photo shoots were had:
There were more inappropriate photos taken, but I’ll refrain from scaring you too much.
On my walk home, I spotted a friend from last quarter’s non-fiction writing class. Together, we sang a Modest Mouse song:
When I arrived home, I ate a spinach wrap, drank water and tucked myself in.
After 48 hours of feasting on life, I don’t plan on slowing down. I just may need a few more spinach-filled smoothies to rejuvenate the system:
Have a wonderful start to the week!
Ciao for now,
QUESTION: How did you feast on life this weekend?
P.S. Here’s a link to my favorite poem, which includes the inspiration for the post title/theme.
