Sunday Fun

November 21, 2011

I love weekends!

I especially love weekend when I have time to enjoy my weekend and do fun things—not just run errands, clean, do laundry, etc.

Saturday was my work day so that I could have fun on Sunday!

After church on Sunday morning, I went to a Deep Stretch class at Anchorage Yoga.

This is the third time I’ve gone to this class and every time I go hoping for a really good stretch session for my hips/legs, but we always end up doing some other part of the body: shoulders or spine.

It still felt good though, but I think I’d be better going off to a different class at the studio for my tight hips/legs.


After yoga, I ran a few errands, and then Craig and I went to Artistic Nail and Spa for pedicures. I also got a manicure with the Groupon I used.


This was our first time to Artistic Nail and Spa, and I was very impressed. It was very clean, well decorated, and not overly crowded like some of the other places I’ve been.

We even got a free beverage to enjoy during our pedicure.


I felt so bad for the guy giving me my pedicure because my runner’s feet were awful!


This is Craig’s expression when they are scrubbing the bottoms of his feet because it tickles so much! (I’m the same way.)


I picked a rich red color for my toes and a deep purple for my fingers.

I was going to go with my traditional light pink for my fingernails, but I decided to step outside my comfort zone and go a little more bold. I really like both of them!


When I got home, it was time to start making dinner: Sweet Dumpling Squash Stuffed with Lemon-Herb Rice.

The sweet dumpling squash came in my Full Circle box las week. I had never heard or seen this type of squash before, so I Googled a recipe to make with them.


I can’t remember if I’ve ever had a stuffed squash before, but I now I know that I’m crazy about them.

It was good—the flavors were delicious, but I didn’t know (didn’t remember?) how dry squash is. I reminded me of a plain baked potato. I added some butter to the squash, which helped.


All weekend long Craig and I kept making plans to get frozen yogurt.

First we planned to go on Friday night, but then Craig had to work until midnight. Saturday got away from us before we knew it, so finally Sunday it was!


We prefer going to Yogurt Lounge over Yogurtland simply because we can sit inside and eat our frozen yogurt since Yogurtland is at the airport and you have to pay for parking.

I enjoyed 4 different flavors (plain tart, vanilla, chocolate, and coconut) but none of them were that great. I really wanted pumpkin, but they were out. 🙁


Craig made a gummy bear parfait.



Blogging might be a little irregular from here until the end of the year.

I’ve got quite a bit on my plate these days with two classes I am taking to renew my teaching certificate.

Plus. . . .

– I do not like taking pictures when it is dark; currently it is dark from 4:00 p.m. – 9:00 a.m., so it is really hard for me to get decent pictures of food.

– I don’t feel like I’ve had much to blog about lately.

– I don’t want to bore you with pointless blog posts; I want them to be interesting for you, and I to be proud of them.

I’ll pop in when I feel like I have something worthwhile to post about, but until then . . . . .

    1. My feet are super ticklish and I made the same face when I get a pedi. The person always laughs at me. Hah. And as for blogging, I’m all for quality over quantity when life gets hectic.

    1. I know I’ve said it before, but I LOVE that your hubby gets pedicures!! I wish I could make Greg go!
      The squash looks awesome- Anything stuffed in a squash is a winner for me. 🙂
      And oh my goodness- I could use a deep stretch class right now. I’m so much better at taking the proper time to stretch if I’m in a group class… I get so bored if I try at home!

    1. I have seen quite a few people around here wearing dark purple fingernail polish. You must be staying on top of fashion! I can’t wait for your future blog posts! Hehe

    1. I enjoy reading your posts.
      Acorn squash are also delicious. I microwave the whole thing for about 7 mins, cut it in half, scoop out seeds and then add some brown sugar and butter. So good! Vegetables with a touch of sweet.
      Good luck with all your projects. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
