quick get away.
Hi guys! I’m still laughing about how many of you had weird food combos to share lol.
This weekend we headed up to the lake to spend the weekend with my friends, Kalyn & Donika + their husbands. While college wasn’t my favorite time, almost every positive college memory I have has these two in it<3
Do you see little Andrew in the photo below lol. Jo is still all him haha. Except her cheeks are totally me! I’ll have to post some baby photos to show y’all!
The weather was pretty dreary with rain and fog, but I actually love that type of weather when we’re at the lake. Makes for a super cozy weekend!
We divided up meals between the 3 couples for the weekend.
egg souffle + milky coffee
…then on Sunday orange-cranberry rolls + eggs + milky coffee once again in the creepy cat mug.
Saturday lunch was french dip sandwiches + buffalo chicken taquitos + carrots w/ dip.
I handled Saturday dinner and made two recipes from Chrissy Teigen’s cookbook: lettuce wraps and crunchy Ramen noodle salad. I’d for sure make the lettuce wraps again, but IMO the salad wasn’t all that great.
There were too many snacks eaten to take pictures of, but some favorites were:
sweetened dried mango from Sprouts (SO GOOOOOD!)
tea cake cookie things
oatmega bar. Have you had these? I think they’re pretty good. I’m not a fan of the Rx bar or quest bar texture and find these a million times tastier.
Maggie had a wonderful weekend jumping into the lake. I was so happy for her to get some energy out. We’ve been living in babyland since November and while she hasn’t been neglected…she hasn’t gotten as much attention as she used to.
And her friend Cooper was at the lake. Cooper is super playful and, at four years old, Maggie is turning into a grumpy old lady who when she is done playing gets all moody and snaps at him. He’s a good sport tho.
Let’s take a walk down memory lane to when Cooper was a baby pup…
It is so fun getting to do the next baby filled life stage with friends. Overall Jojo did good and it was nice to have extra hands to help us. I mean, she’s still a baby who cries and we’re still pretty sleep deprived but it is getting better!
See ya back here tomorrow!
