Saturday musings

Hi ya’ll!!  How are you guys doing today?  I want to say thank you so much for all the love from my blog post yesterday about my grandma.  I really appreciate it.

Today I thought I would keep it light and show you what has been going on in my world the last couple days.  Here we go…

This was my view outside at work the other day.  A huge storm came shortly after.  It has been raining in Dallas all week.  😦

My momma is the sweetest.  She sent my husband and I this card to celebrate our 6 month anniversary.  She also sent us a giftcard to our favorite restaurant.  She is the best!

My husband picked up this popcorn from Trader Joes the other day… I may have eaten almost the whole bag in one sitting.  Oops.

An easy omelette dinner while my husband was on a business trip.  So good!

This is Rhodes.  He has so much energy.  Never stops.

He sat like this with my husband for about .0005 seconds.

Bought my first few watermelons of the season.  Not the best, but makes me so excited for summer watermelon!!

While we were waiting for my mother-in-law at the airport in the cellphone lot, Riley wanted to look out the sunroof.  🙂

And Callie wanted to drive.  😉

My mother-in-law and I made these breakfast cookies yesterday and they are amazing.

I had two this morning with a smoothie and was full until lunch.

They are full of healthy ingredients like walnuts, coconut oil, carrots and quinoa!

Kale salad for lunch with walnuts, craisins, strawberries, quinoa, and avocado.

Have you guys tried this dressing?  I saw it at the grocery store and had to try!

The verdict? I LOVE it.  So creamy and delicious.

So our dining room chairs needed some work.  We decided to recover them while I continue to convince my husband to build me a new table and chairs.  The old covers were dirty and worn out.

My mother-in-law and I headed to the store on Friday to look for new fabric.  Dallas has a huge fabric district with lots of stores close by with tons of fabric options.   We looked at a few and ultimately decided on the beige to keep it simple.

My mother-in-law was the project leader and made our idea happen.  She is so great at all projects.

The end result.  I know it doesn’t look much different than the before, but trust me, in person it makes a huge difference.

The dogs were not fans of the staple gun.

My husband really loves to use his drill. Men love their tools.  🙂

Last night we went to Bistro 31 for dinner and it was amazing as always.

We got the tuna tartar for an appetizer and did not disappoint.  It had spicy mango and avocado alongside the tuna… to die for!!

I am so predictable and got the grilled salmon and veggies, but it was delicious!!  I love perfectly grilled salmon.

My husband got some sort of pear mascarpone pie for dessert and loved it.

I have the best mother-in-law in the world! So blessed!

Today started bright and early with a 5 mile run, but somebody did not want me to run…

I wasn’t really feeling a run today, but knew I would feel better if I did.  So I turned on a show (How to Get Away With Murder) and ended up running 5 miles and watching the whole thing.  Love when that happens!!

My run was followed by a large smoothie with spinach, flaxseed, banana, mango, kiwi, strawberries, and orange juice and a couple of the breakfast cookies we made yesterday!  

That is all for today!!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I will be back on Monday for a recap of our fun adventure we had this morning!!  

Questions:

  1. Do you order the same things when you dine out or switch it up?
  2. Tell me what you had for lunch today! 
  3. What are your Saturday night plans?
