We spent this weekend with two of my great friends, Kalyn and Donika, and their husbands. It’s always so great getting to see them. The majority of the weekend was spent in swimsuits outside. PERFECT.
Friday night we stopped and enjoyed chick-fil-a for dinner on the way to the lake.
By the time we all got to the lake night it was already dark. We hung out outside, played a game (Codenames!), and I enjoyed some ice cream for a before bed snack.
Saturday morning I cooked us a breakfast of fruit, eggs and cinnamon roll crescent rolls.
Served with cold brew lattes made with this coldbrew.
ALL of Saturday morning was spent hanging out in the water.
We ended up boarding Maggie for the weekend to make things easier on me, but we had these two for dog cuddles :)
Each couple planned a meal. For lunch we had buffalo chicken sandwiches + salad + cool ranch doritos.
AND these insane cookie bars topped with meringue that I want to share with you on the blog soon. They were so good!
The afternoon was spent hanging out. The girls did a DIY project, which I will likely share in another blog post, while the boys watched a war movie.
Before dinner we took a boat ride.
Then made homemade pizzas for dinner!
Sunday I made everyone biscuits + eggs + jam / butter + fruit. The biscuits totally didn’t turn out and were actually pretty gross lol. So it goes.
Sunday morning we hung out in the water again, then cleaned up the house and headed home around lunch time.
On the drive home I got hungry so we stopped for lunch at Panera. I don’t understand Panera’s bread situation. Sometimes their bread is freaking awesome baguette, like the below was. And other times it tastes like a brick out of the freezer.
I hadn’t been to a Panera in a while and I loved their drink selection, I ended up getting their blood orange + carrot + turmeric lemonade. It was fabulous. Mixed it with water to my tastebuds preferred sweetness level.
Later that afternoon we…
…scooped up Maggie. She was exhausted. We boarded her at a place where she runs around with other pups all day…
…we went to church. Decaf latte for a snack…
…picked up cooked grocery store sushi for dinner + some grocery essentials. I was too tired to plan meals for the week, so we only got a handful of things…
…and finished the evening watching House Hunters Renovations. We’ve been toying with the idea of making our backyard a bit prettier, so renovation shows have been fun to watch.
I’m off to get some work done, then hopefully will get to spend time with my sister today for her birthday. I hope you do something to make today a great Monday…and not a typical blahh Monday :) I’m going to focus on doing that too!
