Happy Sunday. Hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was super busy and wonderful all at the same time. . .
On Friday, I drove up to the cities to hang out with my #blends, Melanie and Becky. It was bittersweet because this was the last time that we are going to hang out while Becky still lives in Minneapolis. She is moving to Chicago next weekend!!
I finally got to check out the sweet view from her apartment for myself. . .
After hanging out in her apartment for a bit and venting about the horrible traffic I ran into on my way up to the cities. . . seriously over an hour stuck in barely moving traffic with a fussy baby = not fun!
Then, we walked over to Spoon River.
Melanie and I actually got the exact same thing – the vegetarian plate special. It was super delicious. I especially loved the eggplant, which is super funny because I didn’t even know that I liked eggplant!
And then we walked back to Becky’s apartment – which was super fancy – look at these fountains in the lobby!
And we totally had a bar swap – my Special K for Becky’s chocolate chip cookie dough cheesecake bars <—I know! She promised to share the recipe this week!
Thanks for another fun night ladies. .. can’t wait for Healthy Living Summit and to come visit Chicago!!
Then, I picked up Scott, the baby and the puppy and we headed out to the Lake for the weekend. Abby got groomed and even got a bow –> so cute!! And I love her paws after getting groomed.
I was super happy with the nice weather on Saturday morning and I got my long run in. . . 7 miles on my own, then Scott and Dad joined me for the last 3 = 10 miles total!!
Then, just hanging out time at the Lake. . .
You don’t chill in the sink with a sippy cup? Who’s the weird one?
Grilling burgers and brats for dinner. . . and enjoying a margarita. ..
And sometime Saturday night, I decided that I needed to make and eat cookie dough. . . it was a very good decision.
The cookies on the bottom right are my Dad’s, who loves burnt cookies.
They were a little bit of work. . . but turned out really good. They were thick, fluffy and sweet. I am looking forward to leftover scones this week for breakfast on my way to work.
After we let breakfast digest, and took a boat ride around the lake, Dad, Scott and I headed out for a 3 mile run.
Then, it was time to get packed up and make the trip back home. . . now laundry is in the washing machine, baby is in bed, and we are watching Food Network Star Finale. . . and Abby looks like this –>
Hope you had a great weekend too.
What were you up to? Did you make any Pinterest recipes??
