Foodie Friday

Welcome back to Foodie Friday – long time no see 😉

This week flew by (thanks holiday catch up!) and I am so glad it is Friday 🙂 Monday the girls had dentist appointments, both did so good and sat in the chair happily. After we got groceries and Avery picked out cupcakes as her treat for doing so well – fitting, I know.

Tuesday I had Miss. Chloe join me at work for a few hours. Poor girl is teething like a mad women and is a stage 5 clinger. My boss’s 10 week old puppy was also at work so that made for a “fun” afternoon.

The girls cuddling, when I went to take a photo Avery covered Chloe with her arms – nice sister.

Wednesday night we had my Mom for supper and the girls burned off some energy in the yard. I seriously cannot imagine non-summer life right now. We might go stir crazy by December 😉

I will also miss my garden veggies that save my life daily when I run out of things.

Avery is finally coming around with doing paper activities and crafts. She loves the Disney princess magazines so we do a couple pages after Chloe goes to bed at night:

That is about all from our week. I have not ran since the race, but been going to spin at lunch and am hoping to run tonight. But more on the next few months of running later!

Meal planning:

Saturday – Grilled Greek Chicken Quinoa Bowls – Cooking Classy

Sunday – OUT

Monday – Black bean burgers & Kale Superfood Salad – Kristine’s Kitchen

Tuesday – Shrimp Stir-Fry with Rice – Damn Delicious 

Wednesday Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos

Thursday – Spaghetti & turkey meatballs

Friday -BBQ Chicken Burrito Bowls – Budget Bytes

This weekend…Tonight we have games night with my brothers & their girlfriends. Tomorrow I have a 4 hour yogathon (wish me luck!!) and then I am not sure for the rest of the weekend, something fun since summer days are limited now.

So I meant to post this week and then didn’t – oops. To be honest the next couple weeks won’t be much better as we are on holidays right away.

First thing first though – Since today is my Mom’s birthday – Happy Birthday Mom!! – Let’s hope she is actually reading this now 😉

This eek has been another HOT one. But I will never complain about the hot weather (AC perks y’all). Monday I have no idea what we did, Tuesday I convinced Chad to got for a run as a family to make a video for a local race:

Wednesday we were having a rough go after work and supper so headed to the park to wear off some steam.

Then I headed back out to meet some friends to work on more videos . Side note – locals check out the Chocolate Chase race, I promise you will not be disappointed!!

And last night I did a workout while being attacked by Chloe and sat down to do this post in the lovely AC with some kombucha. Adult life at the best 😉

So onto meal planning.

Sunday – Thai Peanut Chicken Quinoa Bowls – Iowa Girl Eats

Monday – Chicken Smokies & Summer Pasta Salad with Tomatoes and Zucchini – Skinny Taste

This weekend I am hoping to get to the beach, spend time with family and that is about it 🙂


Foodie Friday

Ever have weeks that you feel completely behind? That is my week! No idea why but I seem to be scrambling a lot.

It is fair week here which means pancake breakfasts, the parade, BBQs and lots of fun 🙂

Monday night we went to the park, we had not been out after supper in awhile and it is good to break out of the house after supper sometimes!

Wednesday morning my office was closed and my Mom and I took the girls to the parade – as you already saw 😉

Last night I planned to go for a run, got on my running clothes but Mother Nature had other plans so an at home workout it was. My knee is getting extra rest 😉

And that brings us to today! And meal planning.

Saturday – Greek Chicken Kababs with Rice – Cooking Classy

Sunday – FAIR

Monday – Recovery Quinoa Salad (Run Fast, Eat Slow cookbook) & Smokies

Tuesday – Bison burgers & Bocconcini Salad – Happy Holigans

Wednesday – Chicken Fajitas

Thursday – Pancakes, turkey bacon and fruit

Friday -Taco Salad

This weekend we are heading out to the fair a couple times, Saturday night for a date night & concert and Sunday for family day with the girls. Avery loves rides so I cannot wait to take her!

Enjoy your weekends!

I cannot say we had an exciting week really. I took a few photos though! Avery spent every morning at a day camp and LOVED it.

She has one more camp in a couple weeks so I am hoping she loves it just as much!

I got in a tempo run Wednesday night since it was a little cooler than the previous week.

Check out that air! Kidding – I think its an illusion 😉

The girls before bed Tuesday night and trying to love each other 😉

Meal planning these days has the theme of easy! I just am not in a cooking mood most evenings right now.

Foodie Friday

Can time slow down?? I feel like it was just June!

Our week was a fast one with the holiday Monday. The girls have been so tired with playing at dayhome all day and the heat. Tuesday Avery was in bed at 6:45pm! Chloe enjoyed coconut milk ice cream with Dad while Avery slept – shhh 😉

Oh and her 4th of July dress/photo:

Sadly she came down with a rash Wednesday and while it looks no fun she is happy as can be 🙂

Wednesday night I went for a run, I slacked in June on my kilometers so this month I need to focus on gaining some back.

I was bummed Chloe was sick but Chad reminded me it could always be worse – SO true!

Yesterday the girls had a day with Chad’s Dad and then his Mom arrived after work from B.C. and she is spending the weekend with us 🙂

Meal planning:

Saturday – Is it bad that I am not planning anything since I am away?!

Sunday – The Best Turkey Burgers & salad – The Live Fit Girls

I am off work today – woot woot! And taking advantage of Grandma in town to get a pedicure and haircut. Saturday we are going out to a festival for the day and I have my best friend’s stagette that night 🙂 Sunday will be our long run and maybe a bike ride.
