R & R meaning really busy with a sprinkling of really good relaxation:)
Hey friends, how was your weekend? I can’t believe it is already over, I feel like the weekend just flew by. Probably because it was a pretty busy one, anytime we have a weekend where we are going from event to event it seems to go by really fast.

Our Saturday started especially early because the little miss decided that we needed to get up about 4:15. Her brother shortly followed. Since we were up, I decided a good breakfast was probably in order. We made banana pancakes from the Thug Kitchen cookbook, with a little added in flax-seed. They didn’t come out quite as fluffy as I hoped but were still pretty delicious. I made a double batch, which ended up being a ton, so we now have plenty stocked in the freezer for quick weekday breakfasts.
I also did an online barre workout. Both of my little guys were very interested in it, they would come do some moves and then ask me to “crawl” so they can ride on my back. So this 27-minute video took close to an hour, but I’m considering the baby moves bonus strength, lol. Plus, it was super cute to see them try to mimic some of the moves.
The kids had a birthday party at the same time as my Saturday am class, so the hubs took them while I taught. This left me with an hour or so free before they would be getting home, so I decided to take full advantage and get a facial. We have a skin care school pretty close to us, which I have always had good experiences at. It is totally the spa experience, with awesome organic products, but much less costly than a spa because the services are provided by students. I got a green tea facial, which smelled amazing and left my skin soft and glowing.
Later in the day, we had a playdate at the park, before heading to an event at the kids’ school. They had a Spring Gala, which was a nice adult dinner and silent auction (the kids had pizza and played in the room next door with some teachers from their school). Followed by an ice cream social with the kids. It was a lot of fun hanging out with some of the other families and hopefully proved to be a successful fundraiser for the school. I got outbid on my silent auction choices, but it was still lots of fun to browse.
Sunday morning started with bagels and some standard errand running to Home Depot and Target. We are finally starting to organize and decorate at the new place. It feels SO good to be getting settled in.
Midday, I had one of my book clubs, which was conveniently reading the same book (The Silent Sister: A Novel) as my other book club this month, so I was totally prepared! We went to AZ Wine Collective, which a friend and I had scoped out a week or so ago. It was a delightful little midday treat. They had a “Breakfast time” wine, which was basically a really good mimosa in a can. Paired with a manchego cheese, fig jam and almond crepe from the food truck outside, it was lunch time perfection.
Later in the day, we headed to an indoor bounce house place for my niece’s birthday. We had a bit of a mishap getting there, turns out there are two bounce house places in town, but once we got to the right place it was all good. The kids all had a blast and I always love watching them all play together (I also love climbing through the obstacles with them, #kidatheart). This place had a “glow party” theme going, which reminded me of going cosmic bowling back in the day.
What did you do this past weekend? Any big plans for the week? I am excited to get some Orangetheory’s in. I normally do one over the weekend and one during the week, but I had used up all my classes for the month early last week (my month resets on the 8th), so I did not go this weekend and I missed it. I am also hoping to get a yoga class in this week. I do some yoga at home, but I could really use the full stretch of an hour-long class.
Hope you have a great day!
