Hey everyone!! I hope you all had a really great weekend!
It was an awesome weekend here, super active and a smidge lazy. It felt great! Yesterday, I rode 33 miles for The Ride for Roswell, which I’ll be writing about and sharing my story, tomorrow (be sure to stop by). When we got home, I showered and napped while Emmett napped and then we all went out to a yummy dinner at Friendly’s. Most definitely not the healthiest of food (by ANY means), but I feel like I deserved it after working so hard that morning and afternoon. It was delicious, and I don’t regret a bite!
Today, Emmett had us all up EARLY! We cuddled in bed for awhile and then made our meal plan for the week, showered and headed out the door for groceries. I love shopping early because there are few people in the store and you get through everything quicker. We got home, put the groceries away, watched a little Thomas the Tank Engine (Emmett’s newest obsession), had lunch and then Emmett went down for a nap.
While he was sleeping, Seamus pulled out his pool and the hose and we filled it up so it could warm-up for some play time in the evening. While it was filling I read and relaxed, and then went back to doing laundry. womp. womp.
I wrote a little bit, did some professional development courses online, cleaned (a wee tiny bit), and then Emmett was up. We went to Carter’s, then Target to get things for Emmett. Then back home to change and go play in the pool. He LOVED it! I was worried because last summer he was nervous and didn’t like it, but not this summer. This summer he nearly jumped right in! He was psyched!
Now, I’m here writing and getting things ready for the week ahead. I’m excited because it’s a four day week! WOOHOO!
This Week’s Meal Plan
Sunday: cheeseburgers & baked chips (we’re avoiding the oven, the humidity is insane)
Monday: Grilled chicken & Zucchini Salad
Tuesday: Teriyaki Pork Loin & Corn on the Cobb
Wednesday: Mexican Pizzas (I hope it’s a cooler day, because these require the oven)
Thursday: Steak, Chick Pea & Tomato Salad (YUM!)
Friday: Orange Chicken & Rice (carry-over & I hope it’s cool)
Saturday: Mom’s house for a cookout
We’re trying so SO hard to keep things out of the oven. We were stumped this week, probably because Emmett had us up so early and we were tired, but we ended up with a couple oven meals. We’ll just need to watch the forecast slowly.
I am super excited for the cookout next weekend, at my mom’s. It’s always laid back when we’re there, which I appreciate! Plus, Emmett will love seeing his grandma. <3
Here’s the video of Emmett sliding down the slide this evening.
