Foodie Friday

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

Onto meal planning:

Saturday – Turkey Meatballs & quinoa pasta

Sunday – BBQ Chicken Burrito Bowls – Budget Bytes

Monday¬† – Chicken Smokies & Mango, Black Bean Quinoa Salad –Together as a Family

Tuesday – Apple, cheddar and turkey panini sandwiches & soup

Wednesday –¬†Easy Veggie and Chickpea Stir Fry – Two Peas & Their Pod

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

What a crazy week! Going back to Sunday evening, I found out dayhome was closed due to illness which worked out since my brother had the day off so he watched the girls for part of the day then I got off early. AND that morning I got a flat tire…The Tuesday I spent from 2-5am throwing up so stayed home sick until lunch. My Mom had to put down our family dog that day as well ūüôĀ

The girls and I made a spring sensory bin Monday afternoon:

I also went to an awesome spin class that was “best of the 90s hits” – soo fun!

Playing outside, not a lot of this week as it was pretty gloomy this week:

Our latest Bear & Roo goods:

I went on a summer shopping frenzy lately…

Happy Friday everyone!

From our week… Avery has taken a huge interest in playing in her play kitchen again, every morning and before bed:

This usually involves us playing house where I am the Grandma – HA.

Tuesday Miss. Chloe turned ONE!! She got a candle in the banana muffin and we gave her her gifts from us:

She had some one-year appointments in the morning so I had the morning off with her while we went to those and stopped for a treat.

It was a beautiful day so after supper we went for a walk:

I went to spin Wednesday night and last night was spent watching Big Brother ūüôā It has become part of our after work routine to stay and play outside until Chad is home:

Weeks are flying by! Backing up to our week…

Monday we had some time outside after work:

We got these shirts from Little & Lively in the mail, Avery’s current obsession is mermaids so I had to get it for her – of course.

Tuesday I had to be at work at 7am (yawn) so I got off early to get the girls. Initially we planned to go to the park but it was cold and windy so instead we made donuts, which was a flop and only a few turned out. Turns out kids eat their suppers good (and fast) when donuts are waiting to be ate!

Chad and I had a lunch date Tuesday too, then went and bought a new computer. I opted for a desktop after 8 years of laptops. SO now we are transferring all our old desktop and laptop stuff over.

Me and my workout buddy Tuesday night:

Wednesday I hit up a spin class once after supper and last night I had book club РI had not been in awhile!

A couple outfit photos from the week:

Saturday РSweet Potato, Shrimp & Kale Skillet with Rice РPrimavera Kitchen
