Weekend happenings: coffee, pancakes, and toddlers

March 27, 2017

Hello to you! How did your weekend go? We got out a bit with the girls on Saturday and Sunday, but spent a lot of time playing around the house. The pollen just dropped here so everything is covered with yellow dust. It’s pretty gross when it’s everywhere so we didn’t spend too much time outside. I can’t wait until it passes.


Here’s a quick recap of our weekend…


Saturday was spent the usual way: coffee (me), smoothies (girls), a workout (me), and errands (again, me). I’ve been enjoying my coffee with steamed almond milk, a small scoop of coconut oil, and cinnamon. So creamy and delicious!

Early morning workout at OTF. I did not participate in the Dri-Tri this time, but if any readers competed in the event I hope you crushed it! The treadmill portion of Saturday’s workout was really challenging, but I’ve been a bit disappointed in the strength work lately.

Matinee with the girls. The girls and I met a friend at the movies to see Beauty and the Beast. I thought it was pretty good, but really long. I’m a firm believer that movies shouldn’t last more than 1.5 hours. This one was well over 2 hours. We were all a bit restless at the end. Parents, I didn’t think the movie was too scary for my kids (they are 3 years old) and there were even younger kids in the audience. The only parts that were a little scary included the wolves.

Of course, there was popcorn and chocolate. #obviously

Sunday morning called for mini gluten-free buttermilk pancakes. Ohmygosh. So delicious!

And more coffee…

Sunday morning I headed out for a run. My legs felt like tree trunks from all the lower body work I’ve been doing lately. It has been out of control. I went easy on this run and stopped a few times to catch my breath and stretch.

Defy Gravity with the girls on Sunday afternoon. They had a ball.

Why, yes, Ashlyn is wearing the same outfit two days in a row. #chooseyourbattles

Outdoor play

We wrapped up our weekend with baked chicken wings, adult beverages, and Netflix.
