what a great weekend. it was everything I needed.
I had Friday off, so I took the opportunity to pick up an iced caramel macchiato and head up to the cities.
I dropped Luke off with my Mom.
And I went to hit up the trail with my Dad. Remember how I said that I need to make some big decisions? Well, for as long as I can remember, I have always done the best making those decisions on long runs with my Dad. Having my Dad to listen to my dilemma and give advice/suggestions was exactly what I needed.
Lunch with Mom and Luke at the park.
I told Scott that I was heading to the cities to run with Dad to try to make a decision. So, in the morning, he wrote down which choice he thought I should make and told me to open it after my run with Dad.
And I opened it and saw this. . .
He figured that I would open it as soon as he left for work. . . but I didn’t! So, of course, I texted him and was like “WTF?” – well he wrote his choice in little letters on the back of the “cheater” post-it. Such a prankster.
Luke and I celebrated making a decision by using these Lindor Sea Salt Milk Chocolate truffles to make cookies.. . .
Well, they were a fail, the chunks of truffle didn’t hold up in the cookies and totally melted. So, probably won’t be doing that again, but at least they are edible and still pretty darn good.
Saturday morning = pancakes. Luke was watching Dad very closely to make sure that there was syrup on each and every piece of pancake.
6 mile run and trying to get a toddler to look for a picture is almost impossible these days. . .
After run walk. And seriously, toddlers in overalls. . . is there anything cuter?
play time. one of my favorite things these days. Luke is at such a fun age of playing and making up stories and having great ideas. We were roaring at a stuffed alligator behind the couch yesterday because it was going to come get us. Seriously hilarious.
Date night. Mexican Style. Heck yes to a big margarita.
Sunday morning = bodypump + running.
And then ready for the big game. Packers win!!
Abby chased wild turkeys through the woods behind our house and we almost disowned her because she was full of burs and a complete mess. Thank goodness she is so cute. . .
My “helper” while I was photographing this amazing apple cheesecake (recipe on Wednesday!). . .
I don’t think there are too many things that are better than after-nap snuggles.
Sunday night always means getting ready for Monday, laundry, making lunches, meal planning, etc. And then some couch time to relax before bed!
Hope you had a great one! What were you up to??
And because it was pretty marvelous, I am linking up with Katie for Marvelous in my Monday!
