We had a MUCH needed relaxing weekend. We were both so busy over the week, that the thought of going out and being tourists was dreadful.
On Friday night, I went to my first yoga class in a week- that's how busy I had been!
Then, on Saturday I woke up and went to yoga at 7:30 am- I wanted to make up for all of this missed practice! I got a little over zealous and did way too much in a short amount of time and ended up hurting my lower back (dead lifts Thursday didn't help). I think I pulled the muscle while doing a backbend- I wasn't warm when I got in to it, and I started to feel a twinge after holding it for a while. So disappointing!

The rest of Saturday, we lazed around, snacked, and watched movies (Seven Psychopaths was on Netflix and we liked it a lot!). I also spent about 12 hours on the internet, planning our trip to Budapest...Cannot WAIT until Friday!

Anyways, this lack of sleep made Daniel very grumpy and homesick for our quiet Houston home. Which made me depressed (nobody likes seeing their baby unhappy). We decided we did, in fact, need to get away from the flat and remember why we are here. We hiked around the Heath for a few hours, enjoying the nature, fresh cold air, and sunny skies. It made for much better moods!
Afterwards, we cleaned our fridge, waited for our grocery delivery, cooked, and did laundry. Exciting, I know!
Now, we are waiting for this to come out of the oven...
|From Martha Stewart...minus all of the butter, plus some kale and chopped walnuts|
...Along with some Nutella pastries. Don't judge...I couldn't just waste the extra phyllo!
