^^ When you haven’t stopped playing in 2 hours but need some fishy fuel!!
Hope you all had great weekends and Happy Father’s Days! I started my weekend with a little pampering with Miss Lauren! We tried out the new Mary Kay charcoal mask. Hot look!
I left Lauren’s and got a late afternoon mani/pedi — hot pink for summer!
Friday night, Thomas and I went to C&O bar. We had some celebrating to do — business goals and also our first date night out since our engagement, so it seemed fitting that we went back to the spot where we met for our first date 🙂
We shared a bunch of dishes — arugula salad, scallops with whipped cauliflower, jalapeno corn, halibut, and chocolate mousse.
On Saturday morning I took advantage of the fact that Mazen was with Matt and got up for Bradley’s ath con class, which starts at 7:55. It was a nice blend of cardio and weights. Afterwards, I joined a group at Brazos for brunch.
This is one of their breakfast plates and you can DIY your breakfast tacos.
Also, so filling. I ate every bite and there was no need for lunch.
Thirst quencher! #LUMI
When I got home, Thomas was working on putting in the second of the two doors we replaced. Luckily this one went better than the first install!
She’s a beauty! It’s actually the very same Therma-Tru door I put in my old house out to the porch. The full-length window makes SUCH a difference, and I am in love!
To get out of Thomas’ way, Mazen and I went to the pool for the afternoon. Charlottesville Families In Action was founded this year to encourage kids and families to get involved in community engagement and service. They held a year-end party with soccer games and music from 123 Andres, a fun Latin band for kids, at the Fry’s Spring Beach Club. Ticket proceeds went to the Legal Aid Justice Center, so Mazen and I went to show our support and relax by the pool.
He played and swam and played and swam! We knew lots of other families there too.
Back at home, I put together a salad from the garden that we paired with some Belmont Pizza. Both boys LOVE pizza, so it’s a staple in our house. (Well who am I kidding, I love it too!)
This boy is such a good eater now, and we measured him this morning to discover he has grown a whole inch since February! (He’s slouched a little here, but straight up he hit the mark.)
Sadly, mommy hasn’t grown since 8th grade.
Sunday breakfast vibes + Father’s Day cards for all the dads!
On Sunday, Mazen spent time with Matt, Thomas went out golfing with his dad and brother, and I had the house to myself to clean, organize and relax in. I had leftover pizza for lunch and plan to spend some afternoon time at the pool.
