Hello! I’m here for our usual Make Up Monday post . I didn’t really workout this weekend…because I just didn’t feel like it. On Saturday and Sunday I told myself I’d workout in the 3pm/4pm hour but both times rolled around and a drink was poured instead. Lesson learned… workout sooner rather later. Let’s start with Friday’s dinner and work from there, though.
Friday night Josh made us burgers with roasted thyme potatoes and salads. The burger was so juicy and yummy.
There’s just something about eating a burger with a soft white bun. I know as a healthy living blogger I’m “suppose” to want to eat mostly gluten free…but I don’t! I typically go for whole wheat (especially with pasta, I love the nuttiness)…but when it comes to hamburgers and hotdogs I can’t resist that soft white bun (especially in the summertime). Anyway, Cooper and I fell asleep on the couch…like we do most weekend nights. I just love those puppy cuddles. He didn’t seem enthused when it was time for him to go in his kennel.
Puppy kindergarten was the first thing on our agenda Saturday morning. I ate a Quest Bar in the car on the way there…and, yes, my leggings are a little wild. (Not pictured is the bright purple shirt I’m also wearing with it.)
For lunch I had a sub with turkey, cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and some honey mustard.
These sandwiches are huge! (What’s pictured is just half of the sandwich). I typically have half with a few extra bites before I’m ready for a nap . Later on in the day we headed outside and Cooper showed off his running capabilities and his new love for sticks.
And then it was time for a nap on the porch…in his bed of course…he is royalty after all!
While Cooper was napping Josh and I had some appetizers which included Trader Joe’s Chunky Artichoke and Jalapeño Dip (a new product which was super yummy), some meats and cheeses, and tortilla chips.
Dinner was quite indulgent and so delicious…but I have no idea what it’s called. It’s essentially chicken which we fried in in oil after being dredged in a mixture of flour, then egg, and then seasoned breadcrumbs, over whole wheat spaghetti and then topped with arugula and a kalamata olive, red onion and grape tomato mix. (Longest run-on sentence ever.)
And I most definitely drank way too much wine and fell asleep on the couch until 1:30am when I put Cooper in his kennel and dragged myself to bed.
Sunday felt like a true May day. The sun was shining and we opened up the french doors to our balcony and “tanned” right from the living room floor.
Kidding…kind of…we eventually actually sat on the porch in shorts and tank tops and ate a breakfast of toast, scrambled eggs, crispy bacon (just the way I like it) and 1/2 of a banana. Oh, with coffee of course.
After breakfast we spent close to an hour just soaking up the sun (after applying sunscreen – May is Melanoma Awareness Month!). Cooper got so hot that he “smiled” for the FIRST time and I had a giggling “oh my gosh” fit.
But seriously…he’s too stinkin’ cute…and I got a little camera happy/crazy).
Later on in the day I headed to the mall to stop by Sephora for some much needed makeup help. In high school I accidently left my makeup in my sister’s car before she drove back up to college. She swore it wasn’t there but of course we found it a year or so later and half of my make up was just gunky from metling/freezing/settling so it was trash. Since then I’ve been buying “cheap” makeup to get by but I really wanted to get some quality make up and I needed help matching colors and whatnot. The girl was super helpful and I’m definitely going to do a “beauty/Sephora haul” post soon since I’m becoming more and more interested in makeup. While I was out I picked up Chipotle to-go for Josh and myself.
Next up was meal prep (and making some freezer meals). And then it was time for wine (not a workout) and drafting up this post . I must say, sitting in the sun really seemed to wear Cooper out like nothing else! He has slept the WHOLE rest of the day with the exception of a burst of energy here and there. Definitely not what we’re use to with the little wiggly butt. Around 5pm Cooper and I headed out for a 1.5 mile wog…better than nothing. He seemed to really enjoy the bit of running. (No worries, dog lovers! I know you aren’t suppose to run with puppies. I let him decide when we were running and when we were walking, and do not plan to make this a daily or even weekly occurrence.) I took a video while we were running and got this screen shot out of it.
After our little outing it was dinner time. We had chimichurri flank steak with roasted sweet potatoes and asparagus.
And that concludes my weekend
What were you up to this weekend?
