Hey friends, how was your weekend? We made the most of it over here, with pretty action packed days each day.
I had planned to have a friend over for wine and snacks after the babies went to bed Friday, but she ended up needing to stay home with a sick little one, so I finished up a book I was reading, before heading to bed around 9:00 PM. Wild Friday nights happening over here, lol. It was a pretty good book though, Palisades Park, about a family who grew up and worked in the famous Palisades Park of New Jersey. It was not a book I think I would have picked on my own (it had been a Christmas gift), but I really enjoyed it. I think that’s one of the best parts of receiving books as gifts, getting to read something you never would have thought of yourself.
Saturday morning, I had every intention of starting with a workout, but it was beautiful outside, so we decided taking the babies to the park was a better idea than hitting the gym. Being outside (with a nice cup of coffee) on a spring morning really is the best. I also did do some body weight exercises at the playground, which the babies found pretty entertaining.
(Old picture, same ol iced coffee)
After morning park time, I was off to teach class and get a pedicure before we picked up lunch and headed over to my in-laws. They were watching the kiddos for us Saturday evening, so we could attend a wedding and we wanted to celebrate Mother’s Day with my mother-in-law a bit as well. We brought over Beyond Bread. I didn’t get that delicious sandwich again though, opting for my usual salad instead, which was just as good as it always is. The hubs got the Tito Torta though and agreed that it was delicious.
After a nice family afternoon, the hubs and I ran home, got ready and were off to a wedding of a good friends. The wedding was beautiful and we had a blast celebrating the bride and groom. It was also a bit sentimental, as it was the same venue we got married in. We were so busy catching up with old friends that we missed the actual cake cutting, but isn’t it a beautiful cake? I love the little pops of colors the flowers add and the textures in the frosting.
Sunday morning we slept in until almost 7:00 (late in our world at least), then headed out to meet the babies and my in-laws for breakfast. We introduced them to the hubs’ favorites breakfast spot, and I tried one of their breakfast taco dishes. They make their own corn tortillas, and they are so good.
A little later in the day, I headed to my book club brunch. I was still full from breakfast, but couldn’t resist getting a caramel cappuccino after seeing some of the other ladies drinking them.
The rest of Sunday was spent getting ready for the week and visiting with my aunt and cousin who were in town. It was great to see them and for them to get to see how big the babies are getting.
So friends, tell me about your weekend? Did you do anything for Cinco de Mayo or the Kentucky Derby? Do you have a favorite bunch dish?
Hope you have a great day!
