Where do the Weekends Go?

Happy Monday {if there's even such a thing}!  Mine got off to a rocky start, but I'm trying to not let it affect the rest of my day. (Sidenote: right after I wrote this, my Synergy juice fizzed all over my desk and my dress. I didn't realize you're not supposed to shake them and keep them refridgerated. On the upside, I'm thankful I chose to wear black today.) Sadly, the weekends always go by so quickly but my mom's coming for a visit on Saturday so that gives me something to look forward to. Also, an old co-worker and I have a margarita date on Wednesday and I'm really looking forward to that!  I like when I have mid-weeks plans because it helps break up the work week.

On Friday, I went to Bar Method after my 1/2 day of work and then headed off to the social security office to officially change my last name.  I guess changing it on Facebook isn't good enough?  I'm not too crazy about becoming a very common last name, BUT I am happy about the fact that my initials won't change and hubs pointed out the fact that I will move up in the alphabet...

After the name change, I went and got my first ever Chicago hair cut at Aniko Salon & Spa.  I was very nervous going into it because, like I mentioned in a previous post, for as long as I've lived in Chicago, I've always gone back to WI to get my hair cut.  But James did a wonderful job on my hair!  And man, can men stylists give awesome head massages!?!  My hair is not easy to cut, and he did use some new techniques that my former stylist had never done.  But I'm very happy with the result and I will be going to him from now on.  It's much easier to get to a hair salon two blocks away from where I live as opposed to two hours.    

On Saturday, I completed my first long run of this 1/2 marathon training :-/ (8 miles) and sat in my first ice was extremely cold but very necessary.  My legs were already killing me after my run and I knew that if I didn't do something, I would be paying for it on Sunday.  After ice bath, I made myself some blueberry protein pancakes...       
And uploaded over 1,000 wedding pictures!!!  Our photographer sent us our wedding pictures this weekend and I love every sigle one of them!  It's going to be so hard to decide which ones we want to print off and put in frames.  I will be sharing them on my blog starting Wednesday.  Every Wednesday, starting this week and ending whenever, will be called, "Wedding Wednesday" and will highlight different aspects of the day.  Seeing the pictures makes me want to re-do the whole day over again.  The planning? Not so much.  

On Sunday, LC and I took someone else to get a haircut...

Then the three of us ventured over to the lakefront to catch a glimpse of the Air and Water show.  The weather was perfect, but it was sooo hot in the sun.  Honestly, I'm ready for Fall.  I know people think I'm crazy when I say that, but I can only handle so much of summer.     


  1. Hi Sana! I just got an email with your comment and so excited to meet another Milwaukee gal! That's awesome that you still visit good ol' MKE when you have the chance, and Chicago is pretty awesome too.
    Great blog you've got here! I look forward to reading more.
    Question for you - how do you set up the ice bath? I've heard good things but have never actually set one up. How many bags of ice are needed? Do you use cold water to fill the tub, or just tepid water? Any other tips?

  2. Oh my gosh, I must be really tired - Maria! I called you Sana, oops :-) I misread!

  3. haha! It's fine :-) And you just gave me an idea for a new blog post! More details on the ice bath to come!
