Weekend Update: 6/21/15

Oh Monday again? Seriously, the sunshine this weekend was so wonderful, it’s hard to be back inside again. Already looking forward to my run after work! 

On Friday, Scott and Luke picked me up from work for lunch and we took a picnic lunch to the local park. #perfection 



Saturday morning was a little rainy, so Luke and I put on our rain boots and hit up the Farmer’s Market. I picked up lettuce, sugar snap peas, fresh cheese curds, and fingerling potatoes. 



A wonderful afternoon family run. 


And then we headed up to the Lake for the afternoon. Where, apparently, clothing is optional. 


It was nice to see Dad and Mom for a bit. Both are doing well. And enjoyed some Luke time. 


And Mom’s popcorn is probably the best on the planet. We scarfed down her first batch that her and Luke had to make another batch. Smile 



Sunday started with an early morning run. 


And smoothies for breakfast. And I tried out a new life hack I recently heard about. . . to clean your blender, fill it with warm water and a little bit of dish soap and blend to clean. Worked awesome.


It didn’t get off all of the almond butter residue stuck on the side but it was way quicker than hand washing! 

Then, Scott took off to the cities to take in a car show with his Dad and brother while his Mom watched Luke. . . and I headed in to work an urgent care shift.

Sunday evening was a family dinner (salsa crockpot chicken), play time and bedtime. Too busy enjoying life to take any pictures. . .

And a little HIMYM to finish the night. Smile 

So, what were you up to?

I am linking up with Katie (and Erin) for Marvelous in my Monday!

And in case you are interested, the next big group AdvoCare challenge is starting on July 6th. Email me (running4cupcakes@gmail.com for details!)

  1. What a beautiful family you have! And I’m so happy to see you tried the blender cleaning “hack”. I’ve been meaning to try that myself and knowing that it worked for you is a huge motivator.

    Happy Monday! 🙂

  2. I can’t wait till it cools down a bit so I can run outside. It’s pushing 100 degrees this week, so I’m not brave enough to go out in that!
    I spent most of the weekend nursing a cold, but I’m on the mend now so I can’t wait to get back to the gym.

  3. Looks like a great weekend to me! I love that easier blender wash, except for the one time I made a big mess with it, haha 😉
