Hope everyone had a lovely little weekend. Mine was too good to be so short.
Friday night I popped into Luna’s Living Kitchen on my way to Crossfit (which is becoming a thing over here). I had too much time to just go straight to the gym and stand around like a weirdo but not enough time to get home so I just went here instead and got the best tea I’ve ever had.
Saturday and Sunday were both dominated by Nick’s Crossfit competition. (Pro tip: I would not mess with those people.) I kept myself occupied by moonlighting as a photographer (with my sister’s camera).
The competition left night plans out of the question so there was much napping and sweatpants and cats. Saturday night I saw my favorite “My Cat from Hell” episode yet, and it involved a neurotic Himalayan with OCD.
Today my mom flew into town to make her rounds visiting all the family here. My sister and I hijacked her for a shopping spree before she left to see my grandparents. (Important: Everything at Banana Republic at Charlotte Premium Outlets is 50% off. EVERYTHING. And Kate Spade is 40% plus an extra 25% off. I went NUTS.) And we stopped to see this Nugget too…
If you’re playing along with No Sugar November, I hope you’re launching into your second week strong. I confess I ate a fortune cookie Friday night because I forgot. Honesty? Anyway…

JC asked a great question about why I’m including fruit on this “no sugar” kick, and you can see my answer to that here.
