last weekend we had some friends over for dessert. i wanted to make something summery and fruity. i found this recipe (on pinterest of course), and it was easy and yummy and only about 140 calories. now, we did add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, but that didn't hurt. much...
one of my best friend's baby turned 6 this past weekend. no longer a baby, i guess. but she was the first baby in our close group of friends. i didn't get any pictures of the birthday girl (boo jade), but i did a couple at the party.
C tried relay water games for the first time. she did good. only "helped" another team once...
cupcakes and red faces. summer has begun!
after the party, the hubs and i dropped C off at my mom's and headed to maple hill manor!
i'm not kidding friends - you need to go to this place. the owners are great, the property is quiet, and it's the perfect place to relax with the hubs.
it's a llama and alpaca farm, and we love it. =)
historic bardstown is only about 20 min. away, so we hung out there too. looking at antiques, walking around and just hanging out.
the blue chest i WANTED. why are some amazing antiques so much? $450? boo.... but the yellow pepsi tray did make home with me. and i love it. lots.
when we got home on saturday, C was still napping at my mom's. so, we took the energy we regained at the B&B to do a little DIY.
on monday i instagrammed a tease of our brick patio, then i blogged about it here.
then we got really crazy! we finally decided, when driving back from our little overnight, that we wanted to take a vacation this summer. so when we got home we did some research. we got super lucky because a place on the beach had a cancellation. so... we booked it!
i am really trying hard to find healthy recipes to make for dinner. i found a chicken and spinach lasagna recipe and it was good. and, it was actually my first lasagna ever. i was kind of proud...
yesterday was my 2nd day of Couch to 5k.
i don't know why i decided to start it, i just did. maybe vacation. maybe the fact that i've gained 10lbs since last time this year. whatever the reason, i'm doing it. alone. i think that's been my favorite part so far. don't get me wrong, i love pushing C in a stroller, but i don't get to use headphones. yesterday i cranked up adele and felt great!
so, now we are ready to start another weekend. there is so much going on and i am excited! i get to see some family and friends and just be with my little family. maybe even go to the pool for the first time this year.
have a safe memorial day weekend friends. summer has begun!!
