Weekend Update: 1/19/14

Happy Monday!! After a great weekend of just hanging out. .. I am ready for the work week. Like I said on Friday, we had nothing on the schedule, so we were just able to hang out and do whatever we felt like. Smile

Here is what we ended up doing. .  .

Luke had an ENT appointment on Friday to check how his ear tubes are doing. Everything checked out great!


After, a trip to the YMCA to play in the kid’s play area.


Then, naptime for Luke. Abby always sleeps right outside his room during naptime.


And I got a good run in = 6 miles, while watching Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. WOW. Have you seen it? Totally makes me want to start juicing. Anyone have a juicer I can borrow? Or recommendations for a good one? BTW don’t tell Scott I want to buy another bulky, spendy kitchen appliance. Winking smile


More sleeping. .  .


And then time to check out the new house progress. . .


It is hard to eat snacks while keeping mittens on. .


Saturday morning = another run during naptime. 5.0 miles.


Lunch. With ice cream cones.


And a trip to the fireplace store to pick out our new fireplace. . .


And we got the car washed. . . Luke and Abby were very interested by the whole process. . .


naptime. . .


followed by some epic post-nap hair.


Saturday night. . . hanging at the new house keeping Dad company and Luke out of trouble.


Sunday morning = baking. Made Krusteaz Pumpkin Spice quick bread into mini muffins. .. whoa, yum! I added pecans to it, which made them even better.


but next time I am totally making these frosted pumpkin cookies!


Play time while watching football.


The weather was beautiful enough for an outside run with Luke in the jogging stroller.


Then, we put on snow boots and went walking through the snow with Abby. . . and of course, we had to make some snow angels. Winking smile


And what better way to finish the weekend than this beautiful sunset?


What were you up to this weekend??

*I was provided Krusteaz Pumpkin Spice quick bread for free, but as always, opinions on R4C are 100% my own.

  1. Looks like a fun weekend! Sunday was the perfect day for a run…I went with my running club on Saturday morning in 4 inches of fresh snow. Not ideal, but Minnesotan, for sure 🙂 I love seeing your house come together…so excited for it to be done!

  2. That’s adorable that Abby sleeps right outside Luke’s door during naptime! I have about a bazillion letters to sign today at work so I might turn that movie on Netflix and check it out!

    I am a big fan of juicing – however juicing more veggies than fruit. So many people juice fruits and end up with way too much sugar in their diet. I also believe in cutting out the processed foods that alone is a huge step is getting better on the inside! Juicing is a great way to cut weight – IF you juice veggies. However you need to also balance that with lean proteins and also regular veggies for the fiber. I also ran outside Saturday – wow it was so nice out! See you at the Y !

      I totally agree!! Can’t wait to try some juicing. .. I had a carrot apple juice this weekend that was awesome.

    I love weekends that involve nothing and are super relaxing! It sounds like yours was perfect! And soooo much running! I still don’t know how you can run over 3 miles on the dreadmill 😉

  6. LOL I watched that documentary over the holiday break and was obsessed! I was going to buy a Breville, but borrowed my friend’s first. Thank goodness I did because it was SOoooooo messy I would never use it on a daily basis. I am lucky to have a vitamix, so I will just use that and take the extra fiber.

      With each step of the house that gets done, I can feel myself getting way more excited. . . I don’t know how I am going to make it until April (when it is supposed to be finished!).
