Happy Sunday! Did you know that today is National Sister’s Day? I didn’t know that until this morning, but thankfully, my little sister was already on her way to Mankato to visit for the day. . Next year, we will have to get all 3 of us together to celebrate!
But let me back up first.. . Luke and I went on a hot 5 mile run after work to kick off the weekend. ..
Caribou coffee is necessary when you have to work on Saturday morning!
kicking off #AugustPinterestChallenge with a good one!!
Afternoon play time with the garden hose. . .
9 mile long run on Saturday evening. . .
The best thing ever after a long run. . .
Luke and I went on a nice 3.6 mile run on Sunday morning.. . followed by bodypump in the basement.
Then, the best lunch ever. Grilled cheese made with double cheese and fresh bread bought at the Farmer’s Market yesterday. Paired with Amy’s tomato soup. And you have to dunk!
Aunt Laura came to visit!!
And she brought the cutest camelbak ever – perfect for Luke with big trucks on it. And it is almost impossible to get a 15 month old to hold still for a picture while holding his new favorite thing. ..
And we went to the park to play. Luke went down the big boy slide all by himself.
And then we came home and got going on dinner.
We decided to have a Pinterest challenge dinner for #AugustPinterestChallenge.
We made Easy Summer Quinoa, Potato Chip Chicken Fingers with honey mustard dipping sauce and roasted potato coins. <—super good dinner all around.
You can find all the recipe links on my Pinterest recipe page.
So glad that I started this challenge to find some new favorite recipes. And it was super nice to have Laura visiting and helping with dinner. And Scott was a very good dinner helper too. Really, it was a team effort. And thanks to Laura for saving this blog post by taking pictures during dinner prep.
Such a nice weekend. Thanks for coming down to visit Laura!!
Super bummed that tomorrow is Monday, but looking forward to teaching bodypump tomorrow night. And I have some good posts (Spoiler alert – grocery challenge recap and special K bars) coming up on Running4Cupcakes this week!!
