Hey friends! How was your weekend? Is it feeling like summer where you’re at? It definitely is here. This weekend was full of little adventures, just like I like it. It also involved lots of cleaning, shout out to the hubs who is a master kitchen cleaner!
Saturday morning started bright and early with some family grocery shopping, before I was off for a workout. Our local Barre 3 was celebrating their fourth birthday with free classes, so a friend and I hit up an early class. I had not taken an in person barre class in a while, and it was a blissfully hard class. The also had a DJ and lots of fun festivities going on before and after class.
After class, the family and I headed to our little dude’s end of season basketball performance. He was feeling a bit shy, and ended up sitting with me for most of the performance. But it was still nice to see what skills they learned this year. He also enjoyed everyone cheering when he got his trophy.
In the afternoon, we went to check out the snakes at a nearby pet store (kids love it, but they always freak me out a bit).
Dinner was Sauce takeout, including my favorite potato pizza and roasted veggie salad. The hubs selected a sausage and caramelized onion pizza, which was also delicious.
Sunday, we were all up early and I was craving pancakes, so we went to breakfast at a nearby restaurant known for their pancakes. We all shared a pecan roll pancake, which was sweet, fluffy decadence. I had some eggs and bacon on the side for a little savory balance.
We spent the rest of the morning swimming, before heading home to get ready for my book club. It’s my month to host, so lots of cleaning and what not to do. This book club is a potluck style, so everyone brings something to share. I made a cinnamon cake with cinnamon glaze, adapted from this recipe. As well as some honey goat cheese balls with green onion and cranberry. I was so please with how the goat cheese balls turned out, I will put together the recipe and share later this week.
The book we read was My Abandonment, which follows a 13 year old girl who at the start of the book is living in the forest outside of Portland, OR with her father. To be honest, I am still not sure what I think about this book, it is interesting and kind of dark. I just still have so many questions about the main characters. They are coming out with a movie adaptation. Which I kind of want to see, to see how they present the characters.
Sunday wrapped up with a nice, sweaty power yoga class and a cup of reishi mushroom elixir. I have really been enjoying the mushroom elixirs, this one is supposed to help support healthy sleep. I was feeling pretty relaxed after yoga already, but a little additional relaxation help never hurts.
So tell me about your weekend. Was it a relaxing one? Busy? Combo of both? Did you watch the royal wedding? I did not, but from the pictures I have seen floating around Facebook, it looked lovely.
Hope you have a great day!
