And then I couldn't find my exercise shorts. :( I know, I should probably have more than one pair but I only go once a week and not every week at that, so I don't have a need for a lot. In the end I pulled out my pants, which aren't NEARLY as cute and headed off to my friend's house...to discover the road was closed!!
Did I miss the memo that yesterday was "Closed Road" day? Everywhere I went roads were closed. :(
But, still not deterred, I chugged along the detour and made it to her house. We packed the girls up and headed out. We finally made it and I enjoyed a good workout. A hard workout. I'm not sure if the class was harder than usual or if I've missed too many classes lately but boy was I winded. And then I was given 8lb weights instead of my usual 6lb. I know what you're thinking. 2lbs - Big Deal. Well, let me assure you that 2lbs make a big difference. Fortunately today, I'm feeling ok. I guess, MAYBE, I can handle moving up to 8lb weights. lol!
Breakfast was a bowl of oatmeal - surprise, surprise!
|oats + frozen pear, strawberries, cinnamon, chia seeds, chopped dates, & raw sunflower seeds|
After our work out we headed home. The hub's was out on a mother-son birthday outing so lunch was just Kai and I. It was almost noon when we got home so I wanted to whip up something quick....
|Scrambled Eggs with California Veggie Mix + Chopped Tomato + Nutritional Yeast,|
a nuked Sweet Potato + Cinnamon,
& Yogurt topped with Raisins and a drizzle of Agave Nectar.
Then the fun began. Since we were going to see Nana after she and the Hub's saw their movie (Planet of the Apes - both gave it rave reviews) Kai and I decided to make her a Birthday Present!
Have you ever played with Shrinky Dinks? They're so much fun!!
|Kai colored & cut out some shapes. (I used a hole punch so we could hang them)|
|Then we shrunk them. It's so much fun to watch them curl and I always worry they'll stick to themselves...|
But they always seem to flatten themselves out! :)
|Out of the oven. - MUCH smaller and harder.|
I like to put some curl and shape to them before they cool completely so that they don't lay perfectly flat.
|And then Kai picked out some beads and helped me string them.|
A big Blue circle, a small green butterfly (there was a lot of excitement with the butterfly bead discovery)
and a blue teardrop shaped bead.
|And we happened to match Nana's outfit perfectly!|
|A Happy Nana is Rocking her new necklace!|
And what do we see in Nana's hands?
That's right, we went to get Fro-Yo at Orange Leaf again - WAY better than cake. I mean seriously - they have a cake flavored option so if you REALLY want cake you can get it, with sprinkles on top.
4 more bowls and I'll have a free one! :D
When we got there they didn't have White Chocolate as an option! I was forced to try something else. So I went with Cheese Cake & Coconut. I LOVED the coconut! Nana got the new coffee flavor which was so good but wouldn't have worked with the fruit toppings I love so much.
We were once again running late yesterday evening. Really Late. So the Hub's stopped at the McD's drive through. I gave Kai the option of yogurt or a happy meal. She chose the yogurt, even knowing that she wouldn't get a toy!! In the end the Hub's got a yogurt for Kai, a McNugget Happy Meal with Apples and some type of cheeseburger for himself. Kai ate all of her yogurt, all the apples and 1 McNugget! That's quite a bit for her.
When we got home I threw some onions into a pan and then added 1 zucchini, 1/2 a yellow squash, 1 green pepper (from the in-law's garden!) 2 tomatoes, 3 kale leaves, 1/4C black beans & 1/4C minute brown rice - I just can't stop added things when I cook. Fortunately I was hungry. I let that all just simmer while I cleaned up the kitchen and cut up the watermelon we bought. :)
