What I Ate This Week

Hi all! Fourth of July weekend was jam packed.  A holiday weekend means a bunch of delicious food.  We got to spend time with both our parents and had a wedding Saturday night.  I felt like we were driving all over Texas…cause we were. 


Monday: Out to Mexican Food with my sister and her boyfriend.  They just got back from a 2 week trip to Italy so it was great to see them…and you can’t go to Italy for two weeks without missing good ol’ tex-mex.

Hilly 3.5 mile run in the country…and playing with Louie, my parent’s new beagle pup.

We took him swimming.  The cuteness was way too much to handle.

  7. I love eating fondant too! It’s all…artificial. In that oddly delicious way.
    I need to make mac and cheese with Greek yogurt one of these days. Yours looks incredible!

  8. OMG loving fondant is NOT weird at all. In my mind. At Erik’s sister’s wedding, i on the fondant. I think it was marshmallow fondant…so sugary. So good. Like at one point literally everyone at the table got up to go take photos. I excused myself since I was not at all related to anyone there….and sat there by myself and ate the fondant off of Erik’s slice. #badgf

  9. I love the breakfast smoothie in the Guinness pint glass, that’s the right way to start the day ;)
