Weekend Update

March 16, 2014

I know, I know—you’re excited, right?

This weekend has been a tame one—which was *just* what we wanted, honestly.  This is the first weekend in a long time that I can remember where we didn’t really have anything to do and spent both Friday and Saturday night at home.  Ahhhhhh.

Ryan and I were talking on Friday night about how we’ve gotten better about using up EVERYTHING in our refrigerator—I feel like we went through a phase where we seemed to waste a lot of food.  We’d buy produce, only to let it sit in the fridge and rot.  That’s no good.  We’ve been more conscious about really trying to use everything we buy. 

With that in mind, on Friday night, we talked about going out or ordering in takeout, but instead, we threw together these easy sweet potato/avocado/quinoa bowls:


Easy—and definitely healthier than if we’d gone out!

Saturday was a busy day—but all of the busy was fun. Smile  First we had swim lessons, then we headed to downtown Huntsville for the St. Patrick’s Day parade:


A fun time was had by all—Lila passed out for a near-three hour nap after we got home.  #winning

For dinner last night, we grilled:


…and I’m glad we did, because it’s POURING rain this morning.  Always happy to spend the day/evening outside when rain is on the way!

Big plans for this morning—cleaning the house, then church.  Pretty wild. Winking smile 

Have a great day!

    I would kill for a 3 hour nap! Kids don’t know how lucky they are!

      Right?? And of course, those naps always seem to coincide with the mornings where I CHUG coffee, so I can’t nap when she does even if I want to!

    I love weekends when you don’t have any major plans. It’s nice being social/busy, but sometimes you want to wake up to a blank calendar.

    Glad you had a nice weekend! The parade looks like fun. We didn’t do anything TOO exciting either, but it was nice. I’m going to get a pedicure soon and I’m really looking forward to it!
