Weekend Recap 2.15.16 Part 2!

Good morning!  How are you doing today?  I am a little tired from the long weekend… does that ever happen to you?  I know I should be more rested since I had a longer weekend, but sometimes that just means I do more and end up starting the week a little tired.  Hopefully my coffee will kick in soon. 🙂

————————————————————————–

Since my post yesterday only covered part of my fun weekend, I will share the rest with you today!  

I found this on my phone from Saturday afternoon and couldn’t stop laughing.  Otis is such a hoot!

Saturday night we had some friends over and started the night off with some champagne and a fire!

Followed by a delicious dinner of grilled salmon, chicken, tempeh, asparagus, salad and roasted butternut squash and apples (chili powder, cinnamon, olive oil, pecans).  SO yummy! We followed dinner by playing Cards Against Humanity.  So many laughs.

And ofcourse we had to have dessert!  Brownies and this amazing chocolate pie with a pretzel crust (my sister brought and her bf brought it)!

Call me crazy, but I LOVE mango skins.  More than the actual mango.  The skin actually has a ton of nutrients!

Our friends that were visiting love Trader Joes so they made sure to stock up before driving home.  I stocked up on some goodies too! Pecans, shredded coconut, dates, and dried mangoes!

And these delicious brown rice tortillas.

Stocked up on lots of fruits and veggies!  The pineapple at my grocery store has been on sale (.99c) from the usual price of $3.99 so I have been buying in bulk, chopping, and freezing for smoothies.  This is a great way to save money for smoothies as frozen fruit can be expensive!

Can’t get enough!

Sunday, my husband surprised me with red roses (my favorite!).

With this really nice card. 😉  (I call my husband “Bunny” and I have no idea why, but I have for years.)

Then we begun the really fun part of our Valentines Day. 😉  We cleaned all the carpets and rugs in our house…. twice.

Riley and Callie were not happy with the noise from the carpet cleaner. 

We took a quick break to make some lunch.  I used the brown rice tortillas from Trader Joes to make a wrap!  I added avocado, tempeh, and kale salad with craisins, pecans, quinoa and raspberry vinaigrette.

Dinner was so simple with lots of leftovers. We are huge leftover fans! So easy.

That just about concludes our long weekend.  Off to get lots of work done before heading out tonight on a little getaway!  See you all tomorrow!
