Weekend Wrap Up

Although the weekend was a very busy one for us, we also got some relaxation in and stuff done around the house.

Friday night was our big date night meal, and it did not disappoint!  As I’ve mentioned, Chad and I are HUGE seafood lovers!  Basically every kind imagineable.  It’s no shocker that Red Lobster is by far our favorite restaurant!  However, it also comes with a very high price tag so we’ve learned (with the help of my parents who are also seafood lovers) that you can easily replicate some of the things at home.  Friday night’s meal was no exception.  We kind of went overboard and made a smorgasboard, but it was still cheaper and healthier than eating out!!

YUUUUMMMMMM!!!!!  My mouth is watering just remembering Friday night 🙂  With it we had a salad, fries, some shrimp marinated in Hawaiian marinade and baked, and garlic bread.

And of course, dessert.  We’ve been doing a lot of these lately because it’s a low cal way to get my ice cream fix!  It’s just 2 graham crackers with 2 Tbsp FF cool whip.  You just sandwich together and freeze!  It is SO good and tastes just like ice cream when frozen!!!

Saturday Breakfast before hitting the gym: a PB, Banana, Soy Milk smoothie.  It hit the spot and gave me the light fullness I needed to get a good workout in.

Saturday Lunch: leftover Shrimp Pesto Pasta.  Also had some Kashi crackers and a new Hummus I found – Sabra Roasted Garlic.  MUCH better than the Athenos brand IMHO.

Saturday Supper: Breakfast!  🙂  I love breakfast food because it seems so much quicker to make then normal supper food!

During the day Saturday, we watched my friends’ dog Cash.  Cash – how cool of a name is that?  He’s a very big black lab – we’re talking about 115 pounds!  We always think Baylee is so big, but next to Cash she looked SO tiny! 🙂  Here is one of the pics from the play date – I couldn’t get them to hold still so it’s kind of blurry.

Saturday night we had a surprise 30th birthday party for a friend of ours.  It seems crazy to me that a lot of our friends are turning 30!!  Luckily I have a few years to go!! 🙂

Sunday morning it was time to finally try the pancakes that everyone has been making!!!  They did not disappoint!  And I even had to try a Kath style “taco” one! 🙂  YUM!

While Chad had softball practice, 2 of the wives and me went to the dog park.  It was a really nice day – I even ended up getting sun burnt?!?!?    It reminded me that summer IS coming!  🙂  Afterwards, it was already almost 2:00 so we all had to find something quick to eat.  We ended up going to Dairy Queen – of course I couldn’t go and not order Ice Cream!!  It definitely hit the spot with the warm weather.  I got a club (which was SO good), a side salad, and a small Banana Cream Pie Blizzard!  WOW was it good!!!

Once we got back, I got a LOT of cleaning done!  A LOT!  It felt soooo good.  I even got my vehicle all vacuumed out!  Also did laundry, cleaned counters, cleaned bathrooms, floors, etc.  We had supper about 7:30, but I wasn’t even hungry because of my large lunch.  I knew I couldn’t go without eating though, so ended up making a new combo – salad with noodles.  I love this combo when I go to Noodles & Co (I think it’s the Med Salad) but haven’t tried it at home.  It was really good – I just took about 1/2 cup of cooked spiral noodles, topped it with salad greens and cucumber, and put a cooked Boca Chicken Patty on top – topped with Balsamic dressing.  It was really, really good!  I only at about 2/3 of this.

And finally, Baylee after a long weekend.
