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!

Onto meal planning:

Saturday – Bison burgers & garden salad

Sunday – Sweet Potato Black Bean Quinoa Bowls – Recipe Runners

Monday – Salmon Tacos

Tuesday – BBQ Chicken Quinoa Salad – Iowa Girl Eats

Wednesday – Hoisin Stir Fry Bowls with Spicy Peanut Sauce – Budget Bytes

Thursday – Easiest Pasta and Broccoli – Skinny Taste 

Friday -OUT

Weekend plans – a community garbage pick-up with Chad’s work (the girls and I will help I am thinking), a craft sale with my Mom & Avery, a “long” run Sunday and that is all for now.

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 😉

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

Thursday –  Slow Cooker Arroz Con Pollo & Rice – The Lemon Bowl

Friday – French toast, turkey bacon and fruit salad

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Foodie Friday

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 🙁

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…

Okay onto meal planning:

Saturday – Birthday Supper for my brother – Out

Sunday – Cod & Edamame Quinoa Salad – The Girl Who Ate Everything 

Monday – Asian Chicken Wraps with Peanut Sauce & sweet potato fries

Tuesday – Quinoa Veggie Fried Rice – Damn Delicious 

Wednesday – Salmon burgers & salad

Thursday – Healthy Pasta with Pesto, Tomato and Broccoli – ifoodreal 

Friday – Greek Turkey Tacos- Whitney Bond

We do not have a ton planned this weekend, visits with friends, supper and brunch with family and that is all 🙂

Wishing everyone a great Easter weekend!

From Our Week

Sorry guys, no Foodie Friday today because we are leaving on a jet plane for a couple sun-soaked weeks soon 😉 But instead you get our week highlights 🙂

Monday my Mother-in-Law sent the girls some treats for Valentine’s – Avery was so excited that her package had a puzzle and suckers – two of her favourite things 😉

That night I set up the few things I bought the girls for Tuesday morning:

Two of my Valentines 🙂

Tuesday Chad surprised me with flowers, Mini Eggs and a latte:

We started a little tradition where we get pizza and wine for supper, so that year we continued that plus I grabbed us these adorable cookies:

I was pretty tired Wednesday and believe it or not I think it was from skipping my workout Tuesday and then not working on in the morning, once I ran after supper I felt WAY better.

I am going to attempt to take outfit photos, so here are two from the week. I promise my skills will get better 😉

This weekend Avery has her final dance class, we have a spa appointment (her first time!) and I am hoping to steal some newborn snuggles from a friend that just had her baby 🙂

Foodie Friday

Well it is my last post of 2016. I really have no idea where this year went! This week was short and we spent the last few days enjoying being outside since the weather has been good. It is also bittersweet as Tuesday the girls start dayhome! Crazy. I am so ready to go back to work, but am also worried about Chloe adjusting to dayhome. Anyways here are some photos from our week:

Avery tried skating for the first time. I bought the bob skates that attach to boots for a couple reasons – one, they are $12 vs $40 and I was not spending $40 for her to hate skating. Two, she can keep her feet in boots, much warmer than skates and lastly, with real skates Avery would fall once and she would be done. I told her once she can do a lap with these skates she can get princess ones 😉

The first time did not go great as she refused to dress warm:

Day two was much better – since she dressed warm, shocker!

I am so happy we have this double sled, it has been put to good use lately! We also saw some calf moose on our walk!

Avery loves playing in the crib with Chloe when she wakes up:

Chloe loves Avery so much but Chloe is totally the annoying little sister to her these days…
