Weekend Recap 1.3.2017 and a Very Happy New Year!

Happy New Year friends!  I hope you all had a nice long weekend and a happy new year!! I am definitely feeling refreshed and ready for 2017!  We had a pretty low key weekend over here, which is just what I needed after holiday travel.  

Friday was pretty low key with a few errands and getting the house ready to sell.  I have been loving sauteed kale lately and have had it with quite a few meals lately.  It’s just so good!


Friday afternoon was spent getting ready for my sister and her boyfriend to come over for dinner and games and to exchange gifts.  We had tacos for dinner… I made mine a rice bowl instead.  It hit the spot! 


After dinner, we opened gifts.  The pups helped. 🙂


And then we played a few rounds of Taboo!  Did I mention that Butterball is back!?!?  That is our nickname for this sweet pup we watch occasionally.  He is soo cute. 


Riley found the perfect seat in an opened present box. 😉


We started this puzzle. We still haven’t finished it… 


Then I did some juicing!


This was my view in the morning… coffee, lemon water, a smoothie, and some juices!


More smoothies were had over the weekend.  With peanut butter. 🙂


I just can’t get enough of roasted veggies these days.  What is your favorite way to eat veggies?

This is how we all felt by Sunday afternoon… 🙂 


But, we napped and then got ready to head to my sister’s for NYE.  I’ll share more pictures tomorrow.  I am running around like a crazy person today trying to get our house ready for showings tonight.  Have a wonderful rest of your day!

Weekend Recap 3.14.16 Part 1

Hi guys!! I hope you had a good weekend!! We had an action packed weekend with my mother-in-law in town visiting.  Today I wanted to recap our fun Saturday and tomorrow I will recap our Sunday because I took SO many pictures this weekend. Here we go!

Saturday morning we ventured over to the Dallas Aboretum to see the spring flowers and it was beautiful. 

The colors were so pretty. 


We even saw a couple brides along the way. 


I love all the pink and purple flowers! 

I love how you can see the lake behind the Aboretum.  It makes for some really great views. 

The squirrels at the Aboretum will come up very close to you as I guess they are used to humans.  

My mother-in-law and my husband.


Love this walkway.


The weather cleared up and we had a great time walking around for a couple hours! 


Saturday we kept it low key with dinner in with my sister and her boyfriend.  We started with a big salad of mixed greens, strawberries, craisins, carrots, walnuts, and avocado. 


We had grilled salmon and asparagus, and roasted potatoes with Asiago and Parmesan cheese.  

The spread!


And ofcourse, dessert. 


The night wouldn’t be complete without a game of Apples to Apples.  My sister won (she always does!).

And the dogs were worn out from a long day of fun! 

Check back tomorrow for our fun Sunday!!  I hope you all had an amazing weekend and a great start to the week!
