Five for Friday

Some highlights from the week and what I’m looking forward to for the weekend!

1) Great time for 4th of July! We went to a BBQ that a friend of a friend was having.  They live on a small lake so we all rode on the pontoon boat out to the middle of the lake to watch the fireworks.

2) I’m heading to another BBQ on Saturday with my friend Neha.  Since she enjoyed it so much from the wine and cheese night, I’m making my pasta salad again.

3) I made it through my first two training runs without walking.  I’m hoping I can make it through my “long” run of 1.5 miles Saturday morning without walking too.

4) Despicable Me 2 was so cute!  The theater was full, but on opening day for a movie there wasn’t as big of a craze as I thought there would be.  Obviously my favorite parts were the minions.

5) Yoga on Sunday.  It’s been a while since I’ve gone.




Weekend In Review

Happy Monday!

The weather, except for about half an hour when it poured rain on Saturday afternoon was so beautiful this weekend!

I started it off by enjoying a mojiito for Happy Hour on the patio at A Town on Friday with my friend Neha.  This was only my second time there, but I definitely need to go back!  Afterwards I walked over to the nail salon for a manicure.  I spent the rest of the night catching up on the DVR while Zac was at the hockey game.  Love the pink!


Does anyone else watch Smash?! This week’s episode was SO sad.  I’m totally not a sap about movies and TV shows like my sister Molly, but I definitely had a tear about Kyle.

Saturday was lunch with my friend Emilie before the longest hair appointment ever.  But, I’m a nice bright blonde for summer.  We made enchiladas for dinner and snuggled up on the couch to watch Silver Linings Playbook.  Such a good movie, I loved it!  I can definitely see why Jennifer Lawrence won all the Best Actress Awards for it.

Sunday morning we woke up bright and early to try one of the two churches near us followed by a pancake breakfast at IHOP.  Dinner was this recipe.  If you’ve never made them, do it tonight.  Sometimes its fun to eat kid food made for adults right?  Especially with carrot fries on the side!

I picked up one at the library and bought one for my Kindle, but I’ve got two books to read for some upcoming book clubs.  I’m reading Life After Life and The American Way of Eating.  I’ll post my thoughts on them as I finish them.
