Weekend Update: 7/6/14

Oh Monday! After a nice long 3 day weekend with my little family, it doesn’t feel so bad today. . . Smile 

Luke and I started 4th of July at Caribou for smoothies and some outside time.


Then, a trip to the pool in the afternoon.


with friends always makes it better.


trouble. seriously, we are in big trouble. He pulled the stool over, opened the fridge and climbed inside ALL BY HIMSELF. Such a monkey!


Gillin’ –> Jennie-O was nice enough to send me some turkey franks to grill up for the Holiday. And I was most excited about these Jalapeno Jack ones!!


And they did not disappoint! Full of cheese with a nice kick from the jalapenos!


poor Abby HATES fireworks. So. . . I had a lap puppy all night long. I actually really like the extra snuggles, but feel so bad that she is so scared!


Send some SPARK off to my friend, Nicole!


Trip to the Farmer’s Market. . .


BODYPUMP practice + a helper.


Getting ready for our challenge that we are starting today! . . . making homemade larabars (minus chocolate chips!) for snacks and amazeballs using chocolate protein powder  –> prefect post-workout snack!!


I also prepped chicken salad (for lunches), veggies and egg cups.


Family walk and errands.. .


Including picking up a new mattress for Luke’s big boy bed!! Side note – when did he get SO big??


Sunday morning breakfast. . .


And the rest of the day (after a 3.5 mile super humid run. . .) was spent helping Luke “help” Dad with the pantry shelves. .. doesn’t it look awesome??


Ice cream date at DQ –> OMG the s’mores blizzard is still ah-mazing. Smile 


And the rest of the night was bedtime, laundry and getting all my Advocare stuff ready for Scott and I to start our 10 day challenge tomorrow!!


What were you up to this weekend??

Linking up with Katie for Marvelous in my Monday!!

  1. Love that picture of Luke climbing on the fridge- I think I have a similar picture of me as a kiddo doing the same thing (I think I was looking for popsicles).

      I also have a similar picture – except I climbed up into the bathroom sink and then liked to take everything out of the cabinet. 😉

  2. I think your more in trouble w/ Luke finding himself a girlfriend. Look at him relaxing all stylish w/ I’m assuming a family friend? Haha!

    Mmm Dairy Queen is good. Even if blizzards didn’t exist, Id be completely okay w/ just some of their soft serve vanilla ice cream. 🙂

      Agreed. 🙂 What’s your favorite flavor?? I think mine is fruit punch, but I really like grape too.

  6. That pantry! I LOVE all things organization. I’m currently working on reorganizing my bedroom and de-cluttering everything makes me stupidly happy haha. this weekend I went down the shore with family, baked on the beach, and did a little kayaking 🙂

  7. What a fun weekend it looks like you had! A lot more relaxing and rejuvenating than mine! We visited my in-laws and did a crap ton of drinking. My liver needs a massive break. My husband even told me he wants a week off from beer – that’s unheard of!

  8. I love the pictures of Luke pushing his new bed. How exciting! The climbing looks like trouble though. Little J has been our climber… her favorite right now is to climb up knobs on drawers to get on top of counters/dressers/etc. Makes a mama nervous!

    Love the pantry! It’s on my must have list for our next house.

      You know, it’s totally funny. . . I didn’t have a pantry growing up and didn’t think I needed one, until we had one in our first house – now I can never go back!

  9. Your pantry is AMAZING!! I would live in that 😉

      You almost can – it’s too wonderful. 🙂 I am so thankful I have a husband who can build stuff like that – it’s awesome!

  10. Aww your lap dog pup is too cute. I love when my big dog tries to climb onto my lap, it’s like they still think they’re puppies. Glad you had a great weekend!
