Welp, better late than never. I wanted to share my weekend recap with you all, and it sure was a heart-warming, enjoyable one!
I stared my Friday with thawed fruit topped with cottage cheese with lemon curd, Quaker Oatmeal Squares, walnuts, and almond butter.
After a lovely day and a shopping trip to Kroger, I put together a tasty dinner. Dr. Praeger’s newest protein Sweet Heat beet burger with tzatziki, sautéed zucchini, roasted acorn squash and carrots, and sweet potato chips. So many flavors and colors!
We watched a few episodes of The Office, and I noshed on a chopped apple, yogurt, pistachios, and chocolate chips. Hit. The. Spot.
Has anyone seen or tried this new Almond Breeze drink? It’s amazing!
I poured it over shredded wheat, Multigrain Cheerios, raisins, and cinnamon in a nearly empty pb jar.
Barre3 has absolutely been killing it! Their online videos give me so much joy.
I then got ready to head to one of my best friend’s bridal showers! ON jumpsuit, new loafers, and a boho headband to complete mah look.
The decorations were so lovely!
Veggies in ranch.
Banana pudding. Mmmm
They had a really nice sandwich bar, pita chips, hummus, pickles, fruit, and berry-infused water.
The gorgeous bride-to-be!
I am so very happy for Trissa!!! She is going to be one stunning bride.
Kaci so wishes she could attend, and she sure was missed! She and Drew had a wedding to attend, but she was there in spirit. Trissa, Randi, and Callie are sisters. Aren’t they just so pretty?
Their parents have a new kitty who used to be stray. She was adorable!! I wanted to smuggle her away in my purse. 😉
Even though it was late, I went out to check on our lake house since the party was about 30 minutes away. Thankfully, despite all the rain, she looked spiffy and well. Matt is such a wonderful husband! I sure married an amazing one. He made our dinner since I got home late. I bought a jarred Marsala simmer sauce from Aldi, and he made it and served over cauliflower rice. I put together a quick salad, and dinner was served!
Awwwww, melt my heart!
I got settled in and enjoyed yogurt, Oatmeal Squares, almond butter, and a Hershey’s kiss.
Mmmm mmm mmm, this bowl of oatmeal was just what I was craving! Instant Ancient Grains Oatmeal made with milk and a pinch of salt then topped with thawed fruit, cottage cheese, Oatmeal Squares, and pb drizzle.
We got a late start (thanks, in part, to the stupid time change), but all turned out well! One of my wonderful friends gave me her two free Biltmore passes, so we took a day trip to one of our favorite cities. It’s hard to believe we were last there almost 2.5 years ago on our honeymoon.
I had to document it with a SnapChat shot…or two.
She was looking mighty gorgeous! Traffic was a nightmare, and it took us over an hour to move 0.3 miles, but it was sooo worth it.
It took us several selfie attempts, and Matt accidentally took a rather nice portrait photo. Ahaha
First stop was a late lunch at The Stable. I chose their bean beet burger with tomato aioli and a salad. It was spectacular!
Matt had the bbq platter, which was also amazing. We thought about it later that his gf bread was probably grilled on a contaminated grill. Sigh. But he felt great afterwards.
If you don’t take a bathroom selfie, are you really a millennial? Lolz. Keeping myself young and hip.
I just love the shots that Matt captures! I think this turned out fun. I mean, check out that sky.
Latte with a view.
The green houses were stunning! Unfortunately, the tulips hadn’t bloomed yet. But it was still a most perfect day.
A bebe pineapple!
Daw. My forever adventure buddy. <3
I was grateful a sweet person agreed to take our photo. We loved this flower wall.
I asked my friends on Facebook what this was, and I was told it is a jade vine. We both absolutely love it!!
The turquoise is just magnificent and even more so in person.
Their pretty pond.
Strike a pose! Matt said I didn’t look natural. Lol, I didn’t care. I thought this door made for a fun photo.
We picked up this gf raspberry mini bundt cake at the cafe when I got my latte.
We split it, and I had my half with Greek yogurt, an “adorb” orange, almond butter, and pepitas. It was very soft and flavorful!
After a pretty good night’s sleep, I made quite an epic breakfast this morning. Morning Star Farms burger over wilted spinach, topped with shredded cheddar, and then a sunny side up egg. “Adorb” orange and avocado.
With pepper and hot sauce. I highly recommend this combo!
I purchased this vintage framed watercolor owl from Marigold Curated, and I could not be more pleased with it! The design is so perfect. I added it to my Barre3 space and just love it so much.
I moved my photo holder next to our vanity, and I love how it balances my jewelry holder.
Here’s to wishing you all the best week ahead!
