A Change of Plans

22 Jan

Bright and early yesterday morning, Jordan and I were supposed to drive to Indy for our first pre-marital counseling session. As part of our preparation for getting married in the church, we are required to see a marriage therapist. I was actually looking forward to it, and had planned to use to today’s blog post to write about how it went, but we had a change of plans.

While that might not look like a lot of snow, underneath it lies a sheet of ice.

Most of the roads weren’t plowed or salted, so we rescheduled our appointment, and yesterday turned into the laziest day I’ve had in months. I loved every minute of it.

Since we were both already up and ready to go at 7:30am, we made the less-than-a-mile trip to Elegance, a restaurant known for its 65 and older crowd. But the secret is, they have really good breakfast.

I had the Mediterranean scramble with home fries, green pepper, feta cheese and egg whites, with pancakes on the side. They are extra generous with their portions, so I tackled about half of that, and then called it a day.

After breakfast, Jordan dropped me off at home so I could get some rest. We didn’t want to travel anywhere else, and I was exhausted from getting up so early.

I did some laundry, took a 2 hour nap, and watched TV in bed.

I kept my lazy theme going when it came time for lunch, eating it in bed, with a side of ‘Bethenny Ever After.’ Since I had a big breakfast, I kept lunch light with a bowl of strawberries, and my new favorite Chobani flavor- blood red orange- with some Grape-Nuts mixed in.

After lunch, bridal magazines were read.

My cousin gave me all of her bridal magazines when we visited a couple of weekends ago, and I’m slowly working through the stack.

Around 5:00pm (sad, I know), I finally rolled myself out of bed for weights and cardio with Jillian Michaels. The rest of the evening was spent eating pizza and watching TV with my family.

Last night, I went to bed so thankful for the change in plans. My body has been craving rest, and I finally got the rest I needed. I don’t know what’s in store for today, but after church, it looks like it might be another relaxing day. And I am not complaining :).

Do you ever eat in bed?

How do you spend a lazy day?

    That sounds like a perfect day! I love going to places like Perkins for a huge, homestyle breakfast of pancakes!

    Nothing like TV in bed all day!

    That sounds close to MY day yesterday!! I was not up to doing anything productive, so I sat and watched TV most of the day! Glad you got some time to relax.

    Sounds like my Thursday 🙂 I called in sick to work and ending up sleeping until noon, then I moved to the couch to spend some quality time with my dvr. The only time I actually moved was to walk to the store to get some ice cream. Then it was back to the couch to watch movies 🙂 Lazy days are the best! And that breakfast looks super yummy

    I saw on the news that Chicago was being hit with that snow and I actually wondered if Indiana was as well (my mom’s relatives live near Indianpolis). Then the snow came to PA as I was driving through (crazy). Anyways-sorry to hear you had to reschedule but certainly glad that it all worked out in the end. 🙂

    I kinda hate to admit this, but eating in bed is one of my favorite things. For some reason food is just so much better there, and I also start craving foods really badly when I get into bed at night. The weather here has been nasty, so it’s the perfect time to have a lazy day! My “lazy day off” on friday included making soup, taking a long bath, and watching tv while organizing papers and tossing a bunch of things out!

    I eat in bed a lot…is that bad? Especially if I’m eating myself or if my boyfriend and I are having a “picnic” while watching one of our shows.

    I love to eat breakfast in bed on the weekends! During the weekdays I will eat it on my bed too but not all tucked in. Lazy days – bed and couch watching movies!
