Good morning and a very HAPPY Monday to you!
How was your Easter weekend? Ours was AWESOME. Seriously, it was one of the best weekends we’ve had in awhile. We spent time with family and friends and got lots of sleep. My Grammie actually told me just yesterday: “You people do too much,” so I was glad that we were able to get some much-needed rest. With that, here’s a recap of our A+ weekend! 🙂
Qman usually wakes up between 5:30 – 6:30 AM, so sleeping past 7:00 was quite a treat!
Once we were awake, it was time for PANCAKES!
But not just any old pancakes: DINOSAUR PANCAKES!!
I love pancakes, but, man, they do not keep me full for very long. So, like an hour later, I made myself a “magical” green smoothie which did the trick. And, my gosh, it was delicious!
After that, we ran some errands and then met BOTH sets of grandparents for lunch!
That night, Monica and Chandra came over for some happy hour action. Monica is running the Boston Marathon TODAY (go Monica go!) and Chandra moved to Boston just recently, so it was the perfect reason to get together and catch up.
We ordered take-out from Not Your Average Joe’s for dinner. It was quite tasty!
Easter morning was THE BEST, and it started with an egg hunt in our backyard.
Qman was so excited for every egg that he found and he ate a jelly bean from each one.
After the Easter egg hunt was over, he yelled: “THANK YOU, EASTER BUNNY!!!” It was adorable!
After that, we did a little family workout. We originally planned to run with Qman in the jogging stroller, but he only lasted five or six rounds. He was happy playing in my car instead, so Mal and I were able to finish our partner workout.
After that, I whipped up a batch of Peanut Butter Cup Brownies (brownie mix + peanut butter cups cooked in) for Easter lunch at my Grammie’s house.
At Grammie’s house, Quinn got to do another Easter egg hunt!
Just making sure he got them all… haha!
Back at home, I got my food prep on!
When I was cutting up the kale, a piece dropped on the floor, so Murphy swooped in and grabbed it.
I think he liked it?
