Hey, Hey, Hey!! Anybody liking the Robin Thicke- Blurred Lines lately??!! I know I am. 🙂 I know that I am not liking the absolutely blaring line that school is approaching too fast and summer is coming to a close. Yuck!!! August Already!!! Boo 😦
But lets try to stay positive! I have a few more weekends to enjoy and maybe a quick trip to San Antonio. Well, at least Schlitterbahn.
Todd and I had a great time at Nobi helping his fellow brewers celebrate there collaboration beer with Buff Bayou being tapped-Wit Chirstmas aka Wit-X. Way to go Apogee Brewing.
And Friday we got to visit a few possible venues for our wedding. Sundance Grill, Di Amici and Tuscan Courtyard. They all were very accomodating, nice, and helpful. We have a couple more places to visit. (This wedding planning stuff is for the birds – #brainisalreadytired).
Then, Saturday we went to a swim party for a friends Bday and had a little too much fun with the underwater iphone case. HA! All this fun is why I don’t want summer to end.
Last week was great. Dinners were all good. No flops. (Yay, Me!)
This is what is planned for this week:
Monday: Grilled BBQ Chicken Legs and Thighs, corn on the cob and spinach salad
Tuesday: Broccoli and Chicken Crockpot over Rice
Wednesday: Pasta Salad
Thursday: Leftovers or FFY
Friday: Southwest Skillet
Saturday: Rendebrew Fun ( Just Todd, me and the kids are going to the movies :))
So we are back at it again with the swim lessons this week. And again I am trying to plan some really simple, easy, and fast recipes for the week. I usually try to keep things simple any ways because we are always busy, if its not swimming it’s homework, reading, laundry.. you name it.
Last week the dinners went pretty well. All the recipes worked out great. I especially love using my crock pot so dinner is practically done when we get home. This week is no exception. I am making up a recipe so I will let you know how it tastes. The bruschetta grilled chicken was very tasty, I liked how the grill gave the tomatoes and basil a smokey flavor.
On Friday night I didn’t feel like cooking and it was just 3 of us so we had a “pick” night. As in… you can pick out whatever you want to eat. Also known as FFY -fend for yourself- in my childhood years. I just moved the lasagna to Saturday night and it was super yummy but I added way too many zucchini and the kids proceeded to pick some out.
Oh! I was able to get a few days of extra activity in. And super excited that I wasn’t sore after my weights class. 🙂 I’ll try again this week on increasing my purposeful exercise.
This is what I have planned for this week
Sunday: Lasagna Leftovers
Monday: Catalina Slow Cooker Chicken- my made up recipe
Wednesday: Vegetarian Yellow Curry
Thursday: “Pick” Night
Friday: Beach Dinner -Grilled Salmon and Sausage- Disney’s Teen Beach Movie Premier 🙂 If anyone has kids and has EVER had it on Disney channel this summer you know what I’m talking about….!!! I love Disney made for TV movies! 🙂
Saturday: Date Night
Have a great week!!
This week and next week will be out of our ordinary routine. When do we ever reeaalllly have a routine these days though. But especially out of the ordinary these next two weeks the kids have swim lessons right after work so my dinner plans had to be pretty simple and quick. Here is a breakdown of the week in dinners. This week does include a couple meatless meals for Brent. I’m trying to accomodate his preference of less meat which is so hard because I am most definitely a meat eater. 🙂
Monday: Pineapple Verde Chicken with quinoa and green salad.
Tuesday: Bean Burritos and cantaloupe
Wednesday: Grilled Chicken Bruschetta with lemony orzo and asparagus
Thursday: Tuna Sandwiches
Friday: Skillet Lasagna
Saturday: Wingin’ It
I hope to start back with some actual purposeful workouts. I plan to do a little bit of cardio during the swim lessons but we will see if that holds true too because last night Brent begged me to sit and watch the whole time 🙂 PLUS, my legs still hurt after my bodypump class on Saturday. You would think that the delayed muscle soreness couldn’t hang on this long. I only missed 3 weeks of lifting weights, but I guess that will do it. Ugh! #gottagetbackontrack
Love my Scuba Addi!
