Good morning and happy June 1st to you! I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
As you might have read, our weekend was weird/sad/stressful, but it wasn’t all bad. There were plenty of things to smile about too. That said, here are 10 happy things from our weekend.
Quinn learned how to clap! He does it all the time now and always has a big smile on his face. Clap, clap, clap!
I did an awesome, butt-kicking partner workout at KFIT. We actually didn’t finish, but for good reason: 2-mile run + 200 Thrusters + 1000 meter row + 200 Wallballs + 1000 meter farmers’ carries + 2 minutes of planks + 2 minutes of leg raises. Yowsahs. It was a good one!
I took a solo trip to Trader Joe’s. After having a kid, grocery shopping alone is quite amazing. I loved taking my time and discovering new products!
I made some bomb-diggity lettuce wraps. In the mix: Iceburg lettuce + Trader Joe’s Reduced Guilt Chunky Guacamole + canned chunk chicken. And they took like 2 minutes to make.
We bought some folding tables for Quinn’s birthday party next weekend. Although, he was much more interested in the strobe-light thing that he discovered at Lowes. Fascinating!
We took a few long, much-needed walks around the neighborhood. With everything going on with Murphy, it was a nice way to relax and spend time together.
Quinn wore his new shark patchwork shorts. Totally adorable, right? I just can’t get over their cuteness. (FYI: They’re from ThredUp. Have I mentioned that I am obsessed with it?)
We served Quinn a few of his meals like he was dining at a restaurant. I served him his food and explained/described what was on his tray and then Mal presented his bottle, like a bottle of wine. Hey, we were all pretty amused by it. Haha!
Mal put away the dishes and switched where the plates are. I actually don’t think he meant to do it, but I get confused every time I open the cabinets. I’m too lazy to put them back, so it makes me smile every time I reach for the wrong thing. My brain just can’t handle it! Haha!
I ate an entire bag of dark chocolate peanut butter Little Secrets. They basically taste like Reese’s Pieces, but they’re bigger/fatter and made without any artificial stuff.
I also drank a lot of wine. I was sad. I was stressed. It was the weekend. I love wine. I dunno. I just needed wine in my life. I tried the Sauvignon Blanc from Manuscript Cellars for the first time (they sent me a couple of bottles to try) and really liked it. It’s light, slightly fruity (but nothing crazy) with a crisp finish. It was perfect for a chill night at home.
I made Garlic Mustard Drumsticks for dinner last night. Yum x 1,000,000. They were even better than I remembered!
