Easy like Sunday morning

I went into this past weekend with zero plans and it went fabulously.

On Saturday, I went to my one of my favorite coffee shops and sipped on my favorite drink, watched a movie at the movie theater, went to a bocce ball bar but did not play any bocce ball, and discovered a restaurant that dedicates their menu to various flavors of grilled cheese and tomato soup. The place is appropriately named Tom and Chee.

Then on Sunday I made a plan. I set my alarm for 8:00 am in order to get up and get my day going with a trip to CrossFit. If you know anything about me then you might know that I am often always ambitious when I set my morning alarms.  (Confession, I am the snooooze button’s biggest fan).

I can imagine you’ve guessed by now that I somehow overcame my desire to press snooze one more time and made it to the gym. Well… I hate to break it to you, but you would have guessed wrong. It turns out that bad habits simply don’t go away just because its the weekend. Although, I did manage to wake up enough to check the WOD (workout of the day) and find out that it was none other than Murph*. This promptly influenced my decision to stay in bed.

Okay, well now I’ve rambled on and on about something I didn’t even do. But, even if I had, my weekend would have remained fabulous. You see, because while all of the things that happened brought me joy there was one thing that really made it magical, and it came in the form of a 3-tier industrial style shelf.

Exhibit A. This shelf has found its permanent home in my small (very small) kitchen. Now I have more storage and chopping space for when the cooking gets wild. 

Who knew a $30 purchase at Target would make such a difference? Seriously – SO. HAPPY.

Just goes to show that the simple moments are the ones that matter. I’m trying to cultivate more of those and I’m excited to keep sharing them with you.

*Sidenote: For those of you that don’t know CrossFit. Murph is a Hero WOD. It’s done to honor the fallen Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy. He was killed in Afghanistan in 2005 and this was his favorite workout. It is killer. The workout (for your fastest time):

1 mile run – 100 pull ups – 200 push ups – 300 squats – 1 mile run

If you complete the workout without scaling anything then you also wear a 20-lb vest. Like I said, killer.
