Usually we go out on St. Patty's Day...it's the day my husband & I met 10 years ago:)
but this year....it was absolutely gorgeous out when I got home from work..
Just look at that sky~ sunny and 64 degrees...
I just knew there was NO way I was going to some smokey bar or tent party today!
Good thing my husband agreed:)
I decided to keep the spirit of St. Patty's Day alive and just do a little yard work in my green pants:)and you know my yard work outfit just wouldn't be complete without wearing some beach inspired, shell flip-flops:)On any other day...I would have come home and ran and did a little p90x or something like that....but once the first nice weather of the spring season hits...I just can't force myself to spend the time running or doing p90x.
I just like to come home....throw my things in the kitchen and head outside for some good old fashioned working out. Raking leaves that is:)
I definitely think running or cycling and lifting weights or doing yoga is super important...but every once in awhile it's just nice to get outside and put in a little hard work in your yard.
Plus...I still think it counts as working out!!! And I enjoy it....bonus:)
I also encouraged my husband to get a little "workout" in by having him tear out this crazy bush that was in the front of our house!What a hard worker...
I am sure he's burnin' some calories...but my guess is...he really doesn't care:) after I was finished with cleaning up around the pool area...
I had to come out and check in on the progress...Of course....with my trusty wine:)
Probably negated the calories I just burned raking...but owell...I was happy:) Yep...i'd say it already looks a ton better!!
I think i'll plant some black eyed susans there this summer!!!
Of course...I couldn't stop there.
I decided to give the girls a bath....outside...with the hose. brrrrr.....I don't think they were too happy with me....I think they look pretty and smell great now:)Even the kitty was happy today!What a great day!
See..no need to go out and formally exercise all the time. Sometimes it's nice to throw caution to the wind and just get out there and be active:)
Hope your St. Patty's Day was happy whatever you did.
Oh and thank you so much for all of your ideas on my fireplace!! I appreciate it:)
I did decide to paint the fireplace! Here are all the creamy white paint samples I picked up the other day! Now I just have to decide on just the right shade:)
If all goes well ..... I'll be able to share the finished product with you on Saturday and then get to make lots of simpledaisy jewelry on Sunday! woohoo!!!!
