Good morning everyone! Hope your weekends are AMAZING 🙂 I know mine has been a lot of fun, but nothing beat yesterday when I saw my husband walk through the door! He was camping with a bunch of guys from our church for the past few days, and I missed him! Boy, was he a sight for sore eyes 🙂
I love that guy, even if he DID lose Friday’s Marriage Ref Friday battle 🙂 Thanks for voting everyone!
So I’m going to be honest…for some reason this weekend I didn’t take a lot of pictures of my food. I didn’t really eat great, but I was also just super lazy. Friday for breakfast I snagged this heavenly croissant from the kitchen at work:
Flaky, doughy, heaven. All I have to say is thank goodness there was only one! I also had an amazing cookie (’twas cookie Friday after all!) from the same box a little later. It was oatmeal raisin with TONS of raisins…just the way I like ’em 😉
So here’s where I stopped taking pictures (oops), but for lunch I had a coffee cup with some corn, lentils, sliced steak (~2 oz), and salsa with some chips. When I got home I did a WillPower & Grace workout, then proceeded to eat the leftover mac ‘n’ cheese with broccoli that I had Thursday night. Saturday morning I tried to make a homemade frappuccino (I’ve been obsessed lately) and it was a MAJOR fail, so I went to Starbucks and got one with a spinach feta wrap. Much better, although I don’t think I’ll be getting one of those again since I doubt my wallet can sustain that habit for long!
After eating I decided to take the dogs to the dog park by our house, which has a rather hilly 5-mile loop. We did the whole thing, and I successfully wore the puppers out. Sad story though: Keira sliced one of her pads open on a rock! I had to carry all 50 lbs of her back to the car. It wasn’t hard, but my heart was hurting for her! When we got home they both got baths and I cleaned up her paw, after which they promptly fell asleep. Mission accomplished 😉
Lunch was a little different, but I really liked it! A couple days ago I made Angela’s In a Jiffy Spelt Burgers, and had some left over. I also found some pizza dough in our fridge and, since we didn’t have any bread, I decided to make little dough pockets for the patties! You just roll out the dough to about 1/4″ thick, place the patties on it, and then cut a circle that is 1″ larger than the patty around it. Fold it all up in the middle, place on a baking sheet, sprinkle some garlic salt on the dough, and bake at 400 for 15 minutes.
Honestly this beer is GREAT on tap, but I don’t think I’ll buy it out of a bottle again. I always think it will taste good from a bottle and am always sorely disappointed 🙁 I had about 2/3 of it before I just gave up and threw it out.
Today we’re going to church, where I’ll be taking my birth control hanging out with the kiddos (I’m kidding :)) and then just cleaning, relaxing, and writing the rest of the day! I can’t wait to spend some time with my awesome hubby!
What do you do when your significant other is out of town? Do you just carry on like normal, or do you have some habits that change? I usually watch WAY more TV than I should and try to stay home as much as possible. I also sleep with the light because I’m chicken like that 🙂
