Happy Monday Morning!
Aren’t the Monday’s after a Holiday the hardest??? I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend.
My weekend started off at Target (not the best idea), but I did manage to find my spring wardrobe! I am the kind of person that goes to a store and finds a ton of things, tries them on, and then leaves with nothing. So when I found so many wonderful things that fit and are in my price range I get them, because they are worth every penny spent! I found two tanks, a Dodger tee and two super cute dresses.
My favorite was this blue dress, royal blue is one of my favorite colors!
We also had some visitors stay with us this weekend! My brother from AZ!! What a treat, I got to see him twice this month! While he was out, I had to give him another killer workout 😉
Saturday was the day of all days!! I got on my sparkles and headed out for 3 parties!!
Our first party was for our dear friends, the Bowie’s little boy Caden’s first birthday! I can’t believe he is already one. Melissa did a wonderful job at decorating! Loved the Owl theme and huge letters of his name!
So many treats made from Pinterest. I refrained, but did enjoy some meat balls and lots of veggies! I had to pace myself for the day 🙂
On the way to Party #2 I got out of the car and was in LOVE with the beautiful weather we were having!! I am such a sunshine girl. I love the heat and it has been so cold around here that I couldn’t help, but dance in the sun!
The best thing about Party #2 (Easter celebration with the family) was the BOUNCE HOUSE!! We have one every year and I just love them! I think it brings out the small child in me!
I also got to see my sweet nieces again! I love being an aunt.
Then it was off to party #3! We are just too cool 😉
Our last party was for my cousin Caden’s (yep same name as the first party) sweet 16 birthday party!! Can you believe he is 16? If you have been following for a while you might have remembered this post and this post.
We finished the night with some Catch Phrase with the family, what a laugh session!
Sunday it was off to church in Monrovia for an outside beautiful service to celebrate Resurrection Sunday!
I finally wore my Easter dress! I think my favorite thing to wear is dresses and finally the weather is here!
When we got home we had a couple friend over who’s families are far away over for an late Easter lunch. Our backyard is finally coming along again after a long winter season! We put up our new green umbrella I got recently from World Market on Sale!
We even did a fun little egg hunt for the kiddos, but they were more interested in the candy!
The two little models!
The rest of the evening was spent soaking up the sun!!!
Oh and the food was just ok… sadly I made the ham and a green bean side in the crock pot and honestly they were nothing to brag about 🙁 Everyone said the ham was ok, but I was not impressed…oh well better luck next year. But we did enjoy some Lemon Meringue pie that a friend brought, a first for me! It was ok, but I was missing my carrot cake I usually have every Easter!
After all the treats and snacking I started today off with my Shakeology!!! This stuff is a life savor!! Shakeology is so great and one shake pretty much covers my body’s normal daily requirement for vitamins and minerals. It always helps me get back on track!!
Our meal plan for the week is all about keeping it simple! I need to cut out sugar and get in my usual veggies and lean meats:
Monday: Homemade Chicken Nuggets + Green Beans
Tuesday: Tilapia Taco Salad= Tilapia, Mixed Greens, Avocado, Black Beans, Greek Yogurt and Salsa.
Thursday: Hubby’s Vinegar Chicken and Green Beans
Friday: Turkey Burgers and Sweet Potato homemade fries
Saturday: Thai food with Friends
As far as workouts go, I have one more week until the Run Through Redlands Half Marathon so today I am running my last long run of 10 miles and this week I will be getting in two more runs, upper and lower body weights, Insanity, and I am trying out CROSS FIT with a friend for the first time!!!!
Ok that post was longer then intended, thanks for reading!
Question: What was one treat that you enjoyed this weekend?
