Foodie Friday

So I totally slacked on photos this week. I took TWO.

A evening run on Monday:

And Chloe’s current favourite hobby, emptying my Ziploc bags out but then she does put them back ūüėČ

I really do not even know what we did all week – HA! But I do know that I am now off for four days!

On an unrelated note, these two photos below are a year old – HOW?!

Onto meal planning:

Foodie Friday

Our week was full of sun – again! I have tried to take advantage of the nice weather spending all the time I can outside.

Week highlights:

  • Playing outside in the sun:

  • Evening runs, Avery now wants to come with me all the time, on the bright side, she is a pretty good photographer:

  • Chloe is walking almost all the time!

  • I broke out my all-time favourite dress. I paid $5 for this 5 years ago at a garage sale (it was brand new!), and have worn it through both my pregnancies too:

Onto meal planning. I have to admit here that I am struggling with suppers these days, with the nice weather I want BBQ and salads but that is not always stuff the girls will eat. At the same time I refuse to make them different meals than what we eat.

Saturday –¬†Chicken Fajitas

Sunday – Mother’s Day picnic – as long as the weather cooperates!

Monday – Balsamic Penne Pasta with Tomatoes and Asparagus –diethood

Tuesday – Curry Rice Bowls

Wednesday – Greek Chicken Kabobs & pita bread – Cooking Classy

Thursday – Thai Chicken Naan Pizza – Cookin’ Canuck

Friday – Smokies & Whole Foods Copycat Quinoa Salad – Damn Delicious

Our weekend is pretty full, a Mothers Day walk/run, a Coscto trip, garden work and hopefully a picnic for Mothers Day ūüôā Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Foodie Friday

This week spring – well, maybe summer? arrived and we could not be happier! This meant many evenings outside after work which I l love!

The girls love riding their bikes out front:

Chloe is so obsessed with food these days, she easily out eats Avery and finishes up her meals most days. Growth spurt? Oh and never take food away from her – end.of.the.world.

I got my Sea Wheeze shorts! These are my first Lulu shorts and I love them – my fear as to why I never bought any! Me trying to get a decent photo showing them off:

They fit so nice!

More – outside play, this water table is the best outdoor toy ever!

Chloe has become headband obsessed, and every morning picks one out to wear:

Avery helping me wash the vehicles, yes she soaked me:

Chloe loves to walk around the yard, but has to hold our hand:

Yesterday was so nice out I might have found a way to sneak in a mojito on a patio to enjoy the sunshine:

Rough life, I know!

I am gearing up for Sea Wheeze training in the next few weeks (training plan post coming soon!) but in the meantime, I have been getting to spin and yoga weekly as well as doing Hard Corps (BeachBody) workouts at home. I think this training plan will include these weekly classes since I love them too much not to!

Have I ever said I really love short work weeks??

Monday I had off with the girls, my only wish was the weather was nicer. We had a coffee date with a friend and her baby, played with Play-Doh, read books, went for a walk and to the park.

Tuesday I really do not remember – HA. Wednesday we played outside (in the sun!!) after work then I went to spin after supper.

Oh and I got Chloe’s Mixbook baby book!

More after work play time Thursday:

I took two outfit photos of the week:

Story time in our house is crazy time these days, a certain one year old thinks it means time to try and rip books and wrestle her sister…

Besides that I planned to get another blog post done this week and that just did not happen – maybe next week ūüėČ
