Tacos Squared, Wedding Bells, & a Twin Day!

Hello, and happy Monday! Today is Matt’s 36th birthday, and the high is said to be 83, the year he was born. Kind of a fun coincidence. I’ll go ahead and say there are a lot of photos in this post, so I’ll try not to be wordy!

Friday

I began Friday with a fruit and yogurt bowl complete with ground ginger, shredded wheat, and pb.

My comfortable outfit: ON linen capris, fav speckled tee, TOMS, and classic jean jacket.

Lunch was catered from Salsarita’s. Yum!

I put together a quick dinner of frozen spinach and mixed vegetables heated through then seasoned and topped with a sweet potato and tahini. I added even more tahini after I snapped the photo. I love it!

You already know ๐Ÿ˜‰ Apple nachos with yogurt, ground flax, Cheerios, cinnamon, and nuts. We watched the first episode of The OA season two!

Saturday

I made oatmeal in a bowl with milk, water, cinnamon and cardamom, wild blueberries, and Meyer lemon-infused honey. I then added it to a jar of pb with a little extra pb and honey on top. Fabulous!

Snuggles with our babies!

Lunch was the last of our vegetables from the night before with a jalapeno cheddar scone, avocado, and an apple. I then went on about a 45-minute walk before coming home to get ready for one of my best friend’s wedding!

Kaci was so sweet and helped me use her Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, and I loved the eye shadow colors so much I ordered one for myself! SnapChats while Matt carpooled us four in my car.

Kase also gave me one of their Clif Bars that I enjoyed on our way there.

We had a little time before the ceremony, so we chose to have a mini photo shoot. I love that Kaci captured this candid! I wish I had taken candid shots for her. My dress was blowing, so we joked on how to keep it down. My dress, by the way, is the brand Who What Wear that I purchased from Goodwill for $6 and change! I adore it. The fit is so fun.

That’s better.

img_6351

They are adorable!!

img_6363

You better believe we coordinated our twin attire! Midi-length dresses with a waist tie belt and block heeled sandals. I so love her linen dress in this moss green!

img_6367

Werk it, girl!

img_6370

Is the view not stunning?

img_6369

Loved their floral arrangements along the aisle!

img_6376

Wouldya believe I nailed this on the first attempt? I’m basically a pro meow.

img_6384

I did not take this photo, and I’m awful and didn’t take any of Trissa! I never ever take any during the ceremony, and we just never got a chance to take a photo together. :'( They were busy! ‘Tis how a wedding day can be. They looked so happy!

img_6483

They had popcorn to snack on while they took photos.

Their cake topper was adorable!! Their dogs were in the ceremony too!

Okay, some more photos. Sorry not sorry! This couch was begging for it, I swear.

Model!

Matt told us to look to the left, and we both looked to our right. Bahaha! Trying to then keep a straight face was hard. This is our modelesque serious pose.

img_6401

Cheese!

img_6404

Of course Kase with her candid shots. I’ll have to just start snappin’ from now on!

img_6405

Whenever I try to not smile and just look…sultry is the word I guess, I look angry. Ha! But Kaci took these, and I actually liked them. So less (thought) is more.

Cutie patooties.

I had fun playing around with the filter of these because as Kaci took them, Drew said, “the year was 1642” or whatever year so long ago. I about died laughing then had to get it together. Loved these!

img_6439

img_6441

img_6440

Alright, alright enough of our mugs. Onto the food! They had a taco bar. Kaci and I split the spinach soft tortilla then gave the hard shell to Drew.

img_6436

We also split this burger.

img_6435

They were kind and made Matt one without a bun.

img_6437

Cupcakes! I chose the lemon blueberry but tasted the chocolate frosting off Kaci’s, and it was rich and delicious.

img_6438

We danced, killed the cha cha slide, had fun for part of the reception, and then they had to do a faux sparkler exit for photos. They had gotten off their timeline.

Before we left, we got to enjoy time with these three amazing, sweet girls and Randi!! One of the absolute highlights of my night. They are just precious. We’ve been friends for at least 10 years now, and I’m so grateful!

Sunday

After not getting enough sleep, I laid in bed for quite a long time and then rolled out at around 8:00. I had yogurt with cinnamon, nutmeg, banana, last of my shredded wheat, and pb.

img_6446

Ashley Homrich, RD, LDN of Real Solutions Nutrition shared this, and I was so very flattered!

Kaci and I had one of the best twin days! I live for them. We first went to Cruze Farm for pizzaaaaa. I wore my new boho top from Clancy’s Closet, and Kaci kindly took my photos. As if you haven’t seen enough of me. (insert eye roll, lolz)

img_0129-1

It’s so darn fun!

img_0133-1

Axl Rose came with us because he’s such a ladies man! He loves hanging with his mama and Aunt Kor. Also, he really loves pizza crust. Smart boy!

img_6468

img_6469

Caesar salad with seasoned house made croutons to start. Yummmm

img_6458

Then we sunk our teeth into their newest pan pizza. Come onnnn, look at that thick dough. Kaci and I both agreed this is our favorite, but if we were to want ice cream, their classic hand-tossed is the way to go! I ordered ours with green olives and ‘shrooms.

img_6459

img_6460

Then it was on to the dog park! Axl ran his puppy heart out, did some laps in the water, and rolled in the dirt. A dog’s dream day.

img_6461

I just love Kaci so much! Grateful for her support and friendship.

img_6465

I ate a graham cracker with pb before I sadly had to leave and grocery shop at Kroger.

img_6467

I am embarrassed to admit I had not thought to forgo using plastic produce bags until Alexis shared in her stories. I decided to use a Barre3 tote bag for our apples. Between using my own totes, reusable coffee tumbler, and metal straws, I feel better about some of my choices for the environment.

img_6474

After getting everything put away, I roasted parsnips, rutabaga, and two sweet potatoes for the week. I made us salads with an avocado/blood orange/parsley side and Dr. Praeger’s black bean quinoa burgers for dinner.

img_6477

I cleaned the kitchen, prepped for Monday, then settled in to watch One Strange Rock. I had a chopped apple with Cheerios, sunflower seeds, and Quaker oat milk. I bought the unsweetened original, and while it’s not super flavorful given it’s unsweetened, it’s still good. I also had a square of chocolate. Hit the spot.

Monday

This morning I made oatmeal topped with pb and j and a plum.

Party pants on a Monday!

Have a great week! Please share anything fun from your weekend!
