Step Into My Week 6.22

Well, I definitely thought I was going to have this blog post up yesterday, but lately, I can’t seem to get my act together to have a new blog post up daily, so I’m posting it today instead. Thanks for bearing with me in my inconsistency! I really do hope that I can change this, but with it being summer and feeling on the go more often I am not positive if that will be the case. Plus, now that things are opened back up I am trying not to miss out on activities with friends as well. Sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day, even when I wake up before 5:00.

I started my Monday morning with an MPower workout before showering and getting into some work for the day. I had a big video call that afternoon with a client, so I was doing a lot ahead of time to make sure that I was prepared for that. I was able to get other things done throughout the day and then jumped on that call around 3:30. We all talked about the following days’ shoots until after 5:00 at which point I decided to go for a walk while listening to an audiobook. I came back and rinsed off, made dinner, and got some additional computer work done before getting in bed to read. 

Tuesday was the first day of the client shoot, so I got up early to head to the office to pull props. We had four recipes to shoot this day with each one needing at least four different shots. While that may not sound like a lot, we had to wait to have each shot approved which made things take a while. I didn’t leave the office that night until 6:45, and although some friends had invited me to join them at Taco Mama, I went for a run to relieve some frustration instead. I then showered, made dinner, and watched an episode of The Bachelorette with my roommate.  

I wanted to get a workout in before going to the office, so I went to MPower early Wednesday morning and quickly came home to rinse off and change before going to work. I had hoped our shoot would move a bit quicker this day, but unfortunately, that wasn’t the case, and we didn’t leave the office until nearly 8:00. I was so relieved to have those shoots behind me since the food items we were shooting weren’t the most fun to take pictures of! I grabbed dinner on my way home and went to bed early!

I went to MPower again Thursday morning and then did a bit of work from home most of the day before helping Elizabeth at the Hibiscus House showroom. We shot images of some new inventory and something to use for the giveaway we did over the weekend. I left there around 6:00 and quickly came home to change since Hunter and I were planning to play mini-golf that night. There’s a new activity area by the Drive-In Theater about 15 minutes away from us, so we ate and grabbed a drink there before playing two rounds. Historically I’m really bad at mini golf but somehow managed to get a hole in one despite not winning either of our games. After that, I was exhausted and came home and went to bed. 

Hunter and I had talked about going to the lake for the weekend but ended up staying put in Birmingham, which gave me time on Friday to get caught up with work I needed to do after working out. Mid-day, I went to the Hibiscus House showroom to work on things and then later in the afternoon chilled out while watching TV in my room (which is rare for me). That night some friends and I went to a concert at the Birmingham Zoo. Drew and Ellie Holcomb were playing, and it was the perfect temperature to spread out on beach towels and listen to them. When I made it home around 10:30 I was so ready for bed! 

Saturday morning, I got up and went to an MPower class, and after showering put my pajamas back on, given how rainy and gross it was outside. I stayed in my pajamas until around 2:00 when Hunter came over and we made a plan for the day. I eventually changed, and we met some friends at a brewery to celebrate another friend’s birthday. We were there until around 6:00 when a few of us decided to get dinner together at Bamboo. From there, we met up with a couple of other people at a place called Mom’s Basement, where we played foosball and then went to one of the guy’s houses to play Quiplash before finally calling it a night.

I took it easy on Sunday until going to a workout class in the afternoon. After that, I showered and called my parents before going with Hunter to dinner with some of his family. I did a little bit of work in bed after that but went to bed pretty early! 

I hope that y’all had a nice week and are looking forward to the one ahead!
