Here at Miles and Laurel, Marvelous Monday is usually a merge between a true Marvelous Monday (noting five nice things about Monday) and a weekend recap of highlights still on my mind. This weekend started with a chilly but great long run with Molly on Saturday morning, and after that was done, I let the rainy, icy, chilly weather keep me mostly inside for the rest of the weekend in a cozy sort of way. Thus, some of my Marvelous Monday notes are riffs on that theme.
1) Josh will either laugh or roll his eyes when he sees this because I've been crowing about nonstop, but I will now shout to the world that I downloaded Hulu Plus for my new phone and have been back on a Parks and Recreation kick. It makes me laugh just thinking about it.
2) Today I signed up for the next six weeks of boot camp class through work. This may not be marvelous exactly, but I came to terms with the idea that I just need a little more of a forced nudge to do strength training. It felt good to act on that realization instead of just mumbling to myself over and over that tomorrow would be a perfect day to finally going on strength work.
3) We rented "Midnight in Paris" and watched it last night. I kind of want to make Sunday movie nights a more regular occurrence! It was a fun and festive way to end the weekend, especially because we were both utterly charmed by the movie. It makes me want to listen to Cole Porter now, too.
4) Winter birthdays! There are a ton in my family - more on this in the coming weeks - and among my friends. I sounded the first birthday alarm over the weekend, but warm, happy birthday wishes go out to Nat (whose day was yesterday) and Dawn (whose is tomorrow)!
