Weekend at the lake.
Hi guys! I hope those who were celebrating Memorial Day had a fabulous weekend and found a way to honor those who serve and have served.
We spent the weekend with my parents, grandma and sister up at the lake. We had a ridiculous number of animals among all of us.
2 cats – Peppa & Stella (layne and marco’s)
1 dog – Maggie (mine)
2 dogs – Fletcher & Louie (parent’s)
1 dog – Heidi (grandma’s).
All get along pretty well and there were no dog/cat fights. Success!
Louie flying through the air…
Maggie being obsessed with water…
Fletcher not sure about the water (but looking cute)…
Saturday morning started with breakfast. 2 breakfast tacos for me! My dad sautés the tortillas in a bit of butter and they’re always fab.
After breakfast I spent some time jumping Maggie. Here’s an old video of her jumping at the lake :) She’s a nut.
I had a morning cookie + decaf vanilla latte snack.
And we went for a boat ride.
For lunch we has pulled pork on hot dog buns + some veggies.
We floated in the lake and then I took a 3 hour nap. All weekend I felt so sleepy.
Saturday dinner was salmon!
All together now…
Followed by two desserts.
a s’more right after dinner…
then some vanilla ice cream before bed… (do you see Fletcher being a creeper?)
And a million puppy cuddles before bed too.
Sunday we had breakfast bagels for breakfast.
Followed shortly by a decaf latte enjoyed outside :)
I spent the rest of the morning kayaking and laying in the lake. Andrew captured this gem of a photo of me…
I had told my mom I missed frozen margaritas, so she made me a icy mocktail that went along nicely with all the sunshine :)
We ate lunch at the lake before heading back to Houston.
Sunday I just did random errands like go to half-priced books and stop by Einstein Bros to get some bagels for the week. I’d been thinking about that cinnamon sugar bagel ever since I had it so I wanted to get some for the week, but they were all sold out. They did have french toast bagels, so I got those, but they weren’t as tasty as the cinnamon sugar ones!
Bagel snack when I got home.
30mins later we were eating an early Mexican food dinner because I was still hungry. Baby growing is getting a bit predictable now. I’ll be exhausted for 2 days and then on the 3rd day I’m starving, so in my mind a growth spurt happened.
Monday I went to the gym for some movement. First had a bagel breakfast.
Then I got the grocery shopping done for the week.
When I got back from the grocery store I couldn’t stop crying and really still can’t pinpoint why. Andrew’s good at letting me cry when I need to cry and knowing he doesn’t need to change anything. 20 minutes later I felt like myself again.
For lunch I had a roasted sweet potato filled with BBQ chicken, a slaw and some Cheddar bunnies for CRUNCH.
(the knife in the photo below is part of a knife set I got Andrew as a wedding present. they’re from Anthropologie and I feel like they look fancy even through the set of 4 of them was less than $70. yay for making a meal feel fancy with a special knife.)
And I enjoyed a decaf vanilla latte when I was waiting for the sweet potato to bake.
I got this new coffee that has toasted coconut pieces mixed in with the beans. So yum.
The rest of the day was spent…
working on (and eating) a blog recipe.
…helping Andrew plant flowers (while sitting down every 3 minutes because I still just felt so tired).
…and cooking dinner for us. Farro + veggies + tofu + an Asian BBQ sauce + sesame seeds + peanuts.
Paired with a strawberry lemonade of sorts…
Andrew spent the day reorganizing our guest bedroom and office to start getting baby’s room ready. I’ll be sharing the before/after in a post down the road!
And that was our long weekend! I’d love to hear about yours! Feel free to drop a blog link below if you have your own blog where you recapped your weekend fun :)
What are you excited about this week? I’m excited that the next season of House of Cards is coming out! Andrew and I will be watching that tonight!
