Hello! How was your (hopefully long) weekend? Ours was really nice. I feel like we didn’t do all that much, but when I looked back through the photos on my iPhone that I took over the weekend, we actually did quite a lot of fun stuff. That said, here’s a recap of the best things (15 of them in chronological order) from our weekend!
#1: A challenging, but fun partner workout with Mal at CrossFit on Saturday morning. I felt a little beat up after Friday’s workout (my legs are still sore from the back squats), so I wasn’t sure how the heck I would get through the workout, but I survived. How this WOD worked: One partner worked while the other rested and you couldn’t move on to the next exercise until you finished all of the reps in the previous one.
#2: Post-workout iced coffees from Coffee Shack. Will WOD for iced coffee! 🙂 Seriously, though, the thought of an iced coffee after a tough workout really does motivate me!
#3: Visiting the cows at Hornstra Farms!
#4: And trying the apple cider donuts.
Oh my gosh, they were incredible. Mal ate 3 of them in like 2 minutes. I think he blacked-out or something.
Qman loved them too! 🙂
#5: Picking out our pumpkin (at Hornstra Farms).
#6: Discovering this amazing spider pumpkin stand and realizing that we need one in our life ASAP!
#7: Wearing my new LuLaRoe leggings from my sister (she’s a LuLaRoe consultant) and, whoa, they are comfortable. And Mal saying that they made my legs look long, which no one has ever said to me EVER in my 36 years of life, so they’re a new favorite. FYI: My sister and I are hosting a fundraiser on Facebook to benefit the CCFA on Wednesday, October 26th, so be sure to mark your calendars. She’ll have all sorts of deals and giveaways, too!
#8: Catching up and eating sushi with our friends Elizabeth and Nick. Qman also had a fun playdate, so it was definitely a fun evening for all!
#9: Waking up on Sunday morning to my boys making pancakes!
Please note: Quinn’s cooking tongs and “stick snake” that had to join us for breakfast. Hey, whatever gets him (Quinn, not the stick snake) to eat, right?
#10: Making pizza and sandwiches with Quinn’s play sets, which are such an amazing (and fun) tool for increasing language. Qman’s words are coming like crazy (2 or 3 at a time + new vocabulary ALL THE TIME) and his tantrums are so much better now that he can communicate with us. He’s also a much happier kid nowadays. Hooray for EI! 🙂
#11: Getting a bunch of our errands done on Sunday morning, so we had the rest of the long weekend to relax and play.
#12: Grilled Cheese Night!
We all had such a fun time making our own grilled cheese sandwiches and, boy, they were tasty! We’ll definitely have to do Grilled Cheese Night again real soon!
#13: Qman getting a fresh cut. We talked about getting his hair cut for, no joke, probably 3 weeks, so I’m glad that we finally did it. He was getting really shaggy!
#14: Running 12 miles!
#15: Trying Halo Top for the first time and, OMGGGGGG, now I know what I was missing. It’s so friggin’ good and loaded with protein!
