I love summer weekends. If only they lasted just a little longer!
I had a low key weekend at home. But it was the perfect summer weekend filled with delicious warm weather food, pool time and more. Here’s a recap…
Friday, June 24
The BF and I went to Hastings to go to the Flatwater Music Festival. When we arrived, I went to Happy Hour Yoga at Avani Yoga Studio. I have to attend 30 yoga classes there as part of my yoga teacher training. So when I’m in Hastings, yoga will happen.
Then we grabbed dinner at the Bullseye with our friends, Russanne and Justin. It had been a long time since we caught up with them, and we lingered at the restaurant for a few hours. I had a vegetarian flatbread, which was delicious. It got late and we decided to skip the festival and drive home. It was ok though. Yoga and dinner with friends was worth the drive.
Saturday, June 25
Breakfast was oats with chia seeds, goji berries, blueberries, honey and almond milk. I also had my usual beet apple cider vinegar drink.
I went to a yoga class at the CHI Wellness Center. It was a slow flow class, but it felt challenging and I was out of breath a lot. Maybe it was the humidity.
Simple Green Smoothie: filtered water, kale, vanilla plant protein, frozen banana. You can get my favorite non-GMO plant protein powder here –> www.sweetlifenutrition.com. I sell these products because I love them and use them every day, so I appreciate you supporting me!
I went to the farmer’s market. My favorite vendor Gary from Gary’s Garden gifted me with a huge bag of kale! I may turn green soon.
I planted my succulents. I’m obsessed!! Any suggestions or tips on keeping these alive are welcome. I’m a novice gardener.
A few weeks ago, I painted these pots. They look so cute on our bar.
The BF put together his new record stand a few weeks ago, and I finally got it organized. We love it! We bought the stand at Ikea. (who put that handprint on our mirror?)
It was kind of cloudy and rainy on Saturday, so I spent a lot of time cleaning and organizing our house. Since I was out of town for so many weekends in a row in late May and early June, I had a lot to catch up on.
I had dinner with my parents at Flippin Sweet Burgers. I had my usual – the Holly Golightly Veggie Burger. I also shared a peanut butter and marshmallow milkshake with my mom. It was delicious, but too much. Burger or milkshake…not both.
My dad bought my niece a nail salon manicure station at a garage sale, so I spent my Saturday evening getting a manicure in the middle of my parent’s living room. She charged me $1.50.
Sunday, June 26
Breakfast was eggs, red and green pepper, onion, kale and feta.
I’m seriously obsessed with my new succulents. All photos will be taken here from now on.
I spent most of the morning meal planning and meal prepping. I made quinoa, washed and chopped red and green peppers, washed sugar snap peas, made cucumber lemon chia water, spiralized zucchini, yellow squash and kohlrabi and made hummus. The BF and I snacked on hummus, sugar snap peas and crackers before he left for work.
Then it was time for me to head to my parent’s pool. I sipped on my Minerals and Antioxidants drink to stay hydrated. You can get it here –> www.sweetlifenutrition.com.
So so relaxing.
I love summer produce! Check out my amazing manicure! Worth way more than $1.50!
And I love my new swimsuit!
After a few hours, I was exhausted from being in the sun. I ate some organic tortilla chips with homemade guacamole before heading to the grocery store. I didn’t need much…I really just wanted to buy wine.
Then I walked to the park to watch my niece’s softball scrimmage.
I relaxed and watched The Age of Adeline on Amazon Prime. I really liked it! My white wine wasn’t chilled, so I just added ice cubes. You’re probably not supposed to do that, but I don’t really care. I made the BF’s Healthy-ish Nachos for dinner.
I made homemade ice cream for the BF. He’s been asking me to make it for weeks! I made a vanilla base and added in melted Swedish dark chocolate and crumbled Heath bars. Yum!
