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!
