Hiiii!! Long time no see. We sure lived up this weekend! Matt was gone on a guys trip, so Mazen and I spent a lot of time with the Struckmanns. We spent Friday night over there and got in plenty of pool time! (No photos of the pool because you know how pools and technology mix…)
Friday night I brought over lots of salad greens and Sarah, John and I made salads with cod on top.
Later that evening once the kiddos were sound asleep, Sarah and I went to an 80s cover band concert – The Legwarmers! We went in full costume. I decided on aerobics style for comfort of sweating and dancing.
We met up with Lynsie, who always pulls off the 80s look well. Note my fanny pack – it’s actually a spi belt but it was the perfect accessory for holding my phone and cards all night!!
And then we ran into these crazies and their wigs! Man I am short..
The concert was amaaaaaazing!!!!! “Come On Eileen” was the highlight of my night : )
On Saturday I watched the Sayas while the Struckmanns had to run some family errands.
They played and played and snacked and played.
That afternoon I took them back to Sarah’s and we went swimming and ate quesadillas stuffed with turkey, zucchini and cheese for dinner.
Saturday night I watched this movie. So great!
Here’s my Sunday morning raspberry smoothie! It was so thick with frozen fruit that Mazen called it ice cream.
I went to the gym and ran a fast 3 miles on the treadmill before getting in a little rooftop time.
We walked there and back too – so I covered about 5 miles total. Sidebar: Mazen is obsessed with Oprah’s What I Know For Sure. No idea why, but he carries it around and “read” it the whole walk home!
Next up was the grocery store where we also had lunch. Kale salad / fish / beans / macaroni.
Sunday afternoon we hung out around the house and did our weekend chores. And then we ended the weekend with a joint cookout with our neighbors. Dave made homemade veggie burgers with black beans and lots of greens and a noodle and pea salad.
Mazen and I made a big batch of yogamole to share.
Hope you all had great weekends as well! There is so much to pack into summertime. We will be so excited to have Daddy back in town!
