Adult time… for the most part.

Good evening my lovelies – how was your Friday? Any big plans for the weekend?

Marc and I have an “adult weekend” planned out! J is at Grandma’s and we are going to run wild!    Ok… maybe not extreme but we do have some adult activities planned – wine tasting, food, night away… fun stuff!

I started the day with a Green Monster – kinda yucky, though.


I added the norm – alomd milk, almond butter, peaches, berries, spinach… but it tasted bland. I didn’t even drink it – I felt bad about wasting it but I was not enjoying it. Then it dawned on me… I forgot the banana! DUH!

Poor J was not having a good morning. Lots of drool = teething and fussiness. He didn’t even take a nap until 12:30 which is extremely late for him. He did sleep until 2 but still… I hate when he fights it.

Lunch was leftover chili, some veggie tortilla chips and some clementine’s.


I was reading recipes on some juicing (I am determined to start using our juicer more often!) and it sparked something in Marc – he started to juice! He hasn’t been feeling well and he thought the extra vitamin c and nutrients would help his immune system.

His concoction:


Let’s see… he juiced 2 oranges, 2 carrots, 2 celery, an apple, then dumped it into the blender and added some fresh strawberries, a banana and some spinach.

Results? AMAZING! There was enough for two so he poured me a glass too! I was pretty full form lunch so I only drank half. Good job, hubby!

We packed a bag, gathered some toys and headed up to Grandma’s house! Marc and I were starving so we took my mom and step dad out to dinner – pizza and beer time!


J and I shared this plate of food – I had the salad and he had the fruit and cottage cheese. My salad had baby spinach, tomatoes, olives, artichoke hearts, broccoli, chickpeas, baby corn and a small amount of ranch dressing. Do you know how long it’s been since I have had ranch!


Bud light!


And my mom shared a veggie pizza – I actually have no idea what was on it but I *think* there was onions, peppers, olives, mushrooms with some cheese and the tomato on top. Next time we come here I am going to order thin crust – there was a lot of bread!

Then we had some hugs and lots of kisses and came back home. It is so strange not to have J with us. We miss him terribly when we are away! But we know the times we need for ourselves, adult time, is good for the entire family.

Hehe – he looks so chubby here! I LOVE his hat!


MIss you my little Bubba-loo! PS – I have MANY nick names for him! But I use Bubba-loo quite a bit! =)

So after we returned home I did some last minute chores and watched 4 Christmas’s. VERY CUTE movie! Along with some coconut ice cream 😉

Now I am blogging in bed and Marc is on the couch, snoring. Alas, nothing changes… even with an adult weekend. =)

Big day ahead of us tomorrow! Good night!


Get your run on!

So I decided I’m going to sign up for the Rock n Roll Seattle 1/2 marathon! :gulp:

I really need a goal in my running, and this looks and sounds like it would be a lot of fun! Wait…. run for FUN? I never thought I would say this! But here I am loving to run! AMAZING!

The Seattle area is known for their music scene: Nirvana, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Jimi Hendrix, Candle Box… to name a few. The half is only 13.1 miles – I think I can handle it in 6 months!

Now I need to get a game plan in gear, write a schedule and keep at it! WOOHOO!

  1. I hope you had fun this weekend. I don't know what I'd do with myself 🙂 I know how you love giveaways-I've got one going at my blog 🙂 you should check it out!

  2. Your son is A-dorable! Enjoyed reading your post and that pizza looked pretty delish! Good luck with the half marathon. I just got back on the running track this weekend, and you've got me wanting to look for some half marathons myself!

  3. Yay for signing up for the half! I've done two of the Rock n Roll series runs and they have both been lots of fun!

Share the love!
