Weekend Update: 11/24/13

Hey! How are you? How was your weekend? Ours was really good!

Started out Friday morning with an hour long spin class, that was the final part of my spin training! It went really well!! It has been a busy past 3 weeks trying to fit in spin training in addition to everything else going on, so it is really nice to have it done! And also super awesome to be a spin instructor now. Smile 

And Abby went to The Paw on Friday to the groomers – and got the cutest bows in her hair. Love it.

And the best ever delivery. I won the Kind bar giveaway on Lauren’s blog and she was so generous with everything that she sent!! And I couldn’t wait to dig in. .. Madagascar vanilla almond –> deliciousness. Winking smile

Then,  my Mom came down to hang out for the afternoon. . . we went to the mall.

And then she was awesome and watched Luke while Scott and I went out for a date night. Boulder Tap House has the best burgers!

Sunday morning was spent with these two while Scott slept in. (I slept in on Saturday – we try to take turns. . .)

And I made some banana bread – with a twist – recipe coming soon!

9 miles on the treadmill while watching my first Christmas movie of the season –A Christmas Kiss. Totally chick flick and totally predictable, but still good.

Then, I made these for lunch. With my own twist of pineapple and pepperoni – our favorite pizza toppings. We ate them too quickly. No pictures. Smile 

And then rode the rollercoaster ride that was the Packers/Vikings game with these two.  .

Followed by more play time, taking some Christmas pictures of Abby and Luke, and getting ready for work. 3 day work week!! woo hoo!! Smile 

Hope you had a great one too – tell me the best part!!

  4. Um, those pizza pinwheels look amazing! I’m pretty sure my husband would love if I made those. I’m also drooling over your burger. Looks like you had an awesome weekend! Any weekend with good food and date night is a winner in my book. Best part of my weekend was being totally lazy and catching up on sleep and tv shows!

      He totally would love you if you made them for him! And I love that you could put your favorite toppings on them and make them however you want to!

  5. Great pictures from what looks like an awesome weekend! I love Abby’s little bows – that’s really too cute! Best part of mine was hanging with our friends and the 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who.

  6. Abby is so cute with her bows! I love when my dog goes to the groomer. She gets little bows too, but they’re usually gone within the hour after the appointment!

    Sounds like another great weekend! How about that Vikings/Packers game? As a Vikings fan, I’m just happy they didn’t lost for once 🙂 Funny enough, my friend just gave me that movie as an early Christmas present this weekend! Can’t wait to settle in with a hot chocolate and enjoy it 🙂

    Okay, this is so random but what I noticed most about this post is how much your sister looks like your mom and how much Scott looks like his dad!! Luke is seriously the spitting image of his grandpa. Now that I’ve gotten that off of my chest, your weekend was fab! And since when do they allow nfl teams to tie? I’m still confused about that one…

  11. Looks like you had a great weekend!! Love Abby’s bows and I cant wait to see the recipe for the banana bread… it looked amazing!

    Yay for a 3 day week!! Cant wait for all the Thanksgiving food!
