Weekend Update: 6/22/14

Monday! What? Seriously?

Oh well, that’s ok. . . our low key weekend was a success.

We had lots of storms last week with tons of flooding (thankfully none in our house), and now since we are downriver, we are getting even more flooding. . . which means that both of the main roads that I use to get to work were closed this morning! So, I got to take county roads and be quite creative with how to drive to work. . . but I got here, and that’s all that counts, right?

Anyway, here is a peak at what we were up to this weekend..  .

Advocare shipment!!

BODYPUMP 90 practice – biceps and shoulders are awesome!

Lunch at the park with my boys and Panera. Winking smile

Finally got to try the latest SPARK flavor – green apple! Love the single serving packs.

And perfect fuel for a super hot, humid 5 mile run.

Followed by chicken stir fry for dinner. . . recipe coming soon!

We learned our lesson from Friday night so headed out bright and early on Saturday for a run.

Reward = iced nonfat caramel macchiato.

Farmer’s Market. I asked Luke what he wanted and he said “M and M cookie.” I said that I didn’t know if they would have that. . . and what do you know – we found some! And lettuce and granola.

Lunch was my first experience with protein pancakes – ProCakes! I was sent a packet to check out through FitFluential.

20 grams of protein. Yes! And all you have to add is an egg and some milk.

not very pretty. . . basically because I am super impatient and like to flip pancakes early.

Enjoyed on the couch with butter and maple syrup.

And they kept me full for-ev-er..  .

Until it was time to head to dinner. Mexican + patio = summer perfection.

Sunday morning was for sleeping in and then snuggling in bed. <love>

And then I was quick to get to work in the kitchen to try making homemade larabars. . . and thanks to Pinterest = success. Smile

And then I am not sure whether to be happy, scared or concerned that he got the vacuum out on his own, plugged it in and turned it on and started vacuuming!

But, at least my house is vacuumed now. Winking smile

The rest of the day was spent working on putting new shelves up in the master closet and organizing the closet and master bathroom. Not the most fun, but nice to be putting things away and getting organized.

Another great weekend with the family. Smile

What did you end up doing this weekend??

And I am finally linking up with Katie for Marvelous in My Monday!!

  1. You’ve got your own little vacuum helper! How nice is that? But yes, crazy how smart these little ones are to figure that all out on his own.
    I’ve been thinking about you with all this flooding–so glad your house is okay.
    Your weekend looked fabulously relaxing!

  2. What a great weekend! I also tried a ProCake on Friday and was surprised at how full it kept me!

  3. Suddenly I’m dying for an M and M cookie. 🙂 Love Luke’s little shades!!

  4. Vacuuming on his own can’t be too bad right? It’s really cute that he got it out to help you. 🙂 Your stir fry looks delicious. Anytime you can bring in mini corn, I am on board!!

  5. The raw cookie dough bites look amazing! I’ve been eyeing them on pinterest for some time, looks like I need to go ahead and make them!

  6. Haha if my kid started vacuuming on his own, I wouldn’t question it! In fact, every cleaning activity would be turned into a “game.”

    I could totally go for an iced latte now!

      Yup – we are totally on the same page. . . I walked him around the house and he got underneath all the cupboards and in the corners = win!

  7. Haha I get super impatient too with pancakes and flip too early! But gosh, I could eat them every day for breakfast 🙂

      I wish I had more time in the morning to make pancakes! Right now they are just for weekends. 🙂

    Yum, caramel macchiato’s are my fave! We don’t have a Starbucks on our island, but they’ve recently brought in the prepackaged Starbucks drinks. Not low-fat, but it’s better than none at all. Those pancakes look delish too!

  9. This flooding has been nuts! I’m glad you aren’t affected too much by it. I have a friend in Mankato who woke up to about 2 feet of water in their basement. Ugh! I also saw the road and bridge closings by you… wow!
    We stayed home this weekend. It was so very nice!

    Oh my gosh, if Luke becomes a vacuumer extraordinaire, send him over to my place please 🙂 Your weekend looks like it was nice and relaxing!

  13. I love that Luke is vacuuming! Maybe he can teach my girls 😉

    Glad to hear your house is okay! I’m hoping for a dry week in MN.
