This morning’s lovely bowl of oatmeal! Whipped banana with flax and cottage cheese. Almond butter on top.
Mazen went back to school today after a week off for our trip. He was thrilled to go back! While he was gone I worked on a few things and then did a round of planks from my friend Jen’s new book Ultimate Plank Fitness. This book is packed (6 packed?!) full of ideas for planks, and I can tell I’m going to be extra sore tomorrow.
Jen offered to give away a copy to one of you – enter below!
I walked downtown to run an errand and passed by our new pie shop – The Pie Chest!
This was my first visit in, and boy oh boy was it exciting!! I asked if I could take a few photos of the space. I love how crisp and cozy it feels.
I had the idea to get one of each as a surprise for Mazen’s lunch and go on a picnic together to enjoy our sunny weather.
So picnic we did!
My savory pie of choice: broccoli and pimento cheese. I am all about pimento cheese! And I figured it was a good choice for M since he likes broccoli. I loved it, but even when described as both pie and an upside-down pizza with cheese he wouldn’t touch it.
The veggies and hummus were a big hit though. Along with pretzels, fruit and cheese.
We played around for a bit before digging into dessert.
Coconut cream pie!! Again, this was a huge hit for mom (DELICIOUS!)
On our walk home we discussed quiet time toy options. He decided he wanted them all!
And now he’s napping, which is a good thing because he can stay up late to greet KK when she flies in tonight!
