^^ 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.

Sounds like the perfect weekend! How cute is Mazen?! That green juice looks healthy- I’ve been contemplating buying a juicer, but I worry I’d use it for awhile and then forget about it.
I agree with you – when you add up the ingredient cost it makes more sense to buy it. I used to have one but it was such a pain to clean that I gave it away.

Why not just use a blender? That way you can also get the fiber from the vegetables.

Happy Father’s Day! And you’re right – who doesn’t love pizza? 😉

What a fun weekend! Mazen is so cute it’s hard to handle!! I love love love green juice but we don’t have any local stores that sell it (except Whole Foods). I used to make my own but like someone said above it gets so pricey!
WAs mazen always a good eater? My two year old is so picky and I’m wondering he will outgrow it
Definitely not! He ate everything at age 1 and then around 2 started to pull back and we went through a few years of a much more limited palate, but we started to really work on it at age 4 and he’s doing an awesome job now! I think you have to get really intentional about it and encourage them to try new things and doing some positive reenforcement (aka bribing) to get the ball rolling.

Love your nail polish color! What’s the name of it?!
I have no idea – I always forget to look!
Gee did you move and I missed it? Has my computer failed to give me all of your updated posts?? Please either fill me in or tell me which posts start your move and I will try to catch up, I’m really bummed if something has gone wrong with my feed reader.
Thank you 🙂
I moved in early 2015 🙂 What makes you think I moved again? The doors? They are just getting replaced.
I suppose it was the door, and it’s Monday perhaps I’m loosing my mind! Hahahah
