Hi guys! I haven’t shared a weekend recap in a while. Mainly because, after all my traveling in March, most of my recent weekends have been extremely low key (aka laying on the couch, possibly taking Maggie on a walk, and movie watching). We had some plans for this weekend so I wanted to share!
Saturday morning I woke up feeling energized and made homemade flour tortillas. I just googled, ‘homemade flour tortillas’ and used one of the recipes that popped up. I overcooked the first couple (the cooked ones seen here), but them I got the rhythm of it and the rest came out doughy and perfect. I’d make them again!
For breakfast we made breakfast tacos with them. I ended up having two breakfast tacos even though only one is shown here:)
After breakfast I went and met my friend Morgan for a walk at Memorial Park. So good to catch up with her!
After our walk I was hot and wanted something cold for lunch so I made a smoothie. Into the smoothie went milk + cottage cheese + multiple frozen bananas + couple scoops of orange sherbet. Topped with some granola.
After lunch I put on a random Ben Stiller Netflix movie called, The Heartbreak Kid, it was stupid and I don’t recommend it AT ALL. My sister recommended we watch 13 Reasons Why next. Have you watched it?
Later that afternoon we went and met Andrew’s parents + sister + bro-in-law to see Cirque Du Soleil. I had never seen a show before and really enjoyed it!
For dinner we actually went next door to the Houston Racetrack where they offered a buffet. Food was okay. Dessert was good. Atmosphere was fun.
Our table was by a window that faced the the racetrack, so we got to see a couple horse races while we were there.
For dinner I went with a cobb-style salad with blue cheese dressing + some chicken. Then I went back for a carb course (lol) of more croutons and pasta.
For dessert I had carrot cake, which was really tasty.
Then home to sleep.
Sunday we woke up and I felt like going on a quick 15 minute walk since it was beautiful outside. Houston is getting SO hot already, so I’m trying to take advantage of the cooler mornings while I can! When I got back home we got ready for church.
At church I had a couple breakfast tacos for breakfast.
After church I went and go the grocery shopping for the week done.
Then made myself a brunch-y lunch. French toast + some vanilla greek yogurt with granola & grapefruit.
I went to an afternoon yoga flow class that was nice because they opened up one of the large windows and the class was filled with fresh air. LOVE IT.
Afternoon snacks included: cottage cheese + pretzels + grapefruit juice. Then a tortilla with ham & cheese.
AND THEN WE WENT AND MET MY PARENT’S NEW PUPPY!!!!!!!!! We’re 98% sure his name is gonna be ‘Fletcher’. He is so cute and cuddly (as all puppies are).
Maggie only got annoyed with him once when he bit her tail ;)
We stayed at my parents for dinner: steak + corn with black beans + this avocado thing my mom made that was awesome. It had avocado + snap peas + Italian dressing + cheese. It kinda looked like mush, but it was SO GOOD. Definitely had seconds of that!
We hung out a while after dinner and then headed home.
Cookie + milk before bed. Whenever I make a batch of cookies I’ve been freezing 3 balls of dough for anytime cookies. I like it! It makes cookie cravings easy to satisfy!
And that was our weekend!
Do you have anything exciting planned for this week? My exciting plans are to fully figure out how to file insurance claims for my clients hehe ;)
