Saturday morning started with a coconut flour pancake. While cooking (before I flipped it), instead of graham crackers like that recipe calls for I pressed some granola into the top. Without some kind of added carbs this pancake only keeps me full for like an hour. Topped with some nut butters and served with a homemade half-caf vanilla latte.
Saturday morning I ended up replying to some emails I got behind on. Then Andrew and I headed up to the lake. We dropped off Maggie at a boarding facility because we had an adventure planned for Sunday that she couldn’t come along on.
She looks a bit nervous in the below photo, but she really is a great car rider and typically doesn’t seem to mind. She must’ve sensed she was getting left behind!
We got to the lake around lunch time and had some pasta salad + leftover slider patties.
Then I spent the rest of the afternoon hanging out in the water + snacking on the best cantaloupe and some delicious M&M cookies that our family friends brought.
We had A TON of people up at the lake. The weekend was with some of our good family friends and it was a chance to get together to celebrate some recent engagements. The below photo is of all the kids! We were missing Layne + Marco :/
For dinner my dad cooked salmon on the grill. My dad made some marinade that had dill in it and it was SO good on the salmon.
Complete with this pretty view…
Dinner = that salmon + loaded baked potatoes + roasted veggies.
Dessert was ice cream + peach cobbler that was made on the grill.
Then bed. Because I’m pregnant my parents let Andrew and I sleep in their master bedroom while everyone else (all 15 of them) crammed into the house elsewhere. We slept fabulously, which I was super grateful for…but it felt weird taking over their bedroom when they were there!
Sunday morning started with my Aunt Ali’s famous Swedish pancakes (their thickness is between a crepe and a pancake). We filled ’em with fruit and topped with maple syrup. We had a long drive ahead of us that morning and I wanted to be full, so I went back for seconds.
Then Andrew and I were off! We decided to go on an overnight babymoon to someplace I’ve always wanted to visit. More on that later this week!
How was your weekend? Anything you’re looking forward to this week?
