…no, not the real kind of running. Who do you think I am?
Here’s my weekend in review…
Right now, I’m not working Fridays. It’s rather glorious. Instead I catch up on all the chores I neglect in the week, spend quality time with the bean, and meet up with my mommy friends so our boys can ‘play’ together:
Friday evening I met Zach and his coworkers for a drink. And rather than make dinner, we hit up Yoppi. Again. And, yes, I had the cake batter froyo. Again. It was everything I wanted and more. Who needs dinner when you can have dessert?
I woke up ‘early’ ( as in 8am) to get in 40 minutes of cardio and about 10 minutes of weights/abs before Zach and bean got out of bed. I wanted to check it off my list before I met up with my fab friend Miss Shayla for lunch in Palo Alto. She introduced me to a new restaurant by Top Chef Art Smith (love), called Lyfe. Because great minds think alike, we both ordered the Napa cabbage salad and split the side of butternut squash and brussel sprouts. Delish and healthy too.
We putzed around PA for a bit, and clearly had to make a pit stop for froyo at Yogurtland. Oh, what, you don’t have froyo twice in less than 24 hours? Pssht. Yoppi won the battle between the two.
Saturday afternoon Zach and I hit up Trader Joe’s for a massive grocery shopping trip. Unfortunately we never meal plan all that well, so let’s hope we aren’t stocked up on snacks only.
That evening we did a spaghetti meatball dinner followed with the Easter egg dying:
Ahh, Easter. Sadly we didn’t have any grand plans with extended family or friends, so we created our own little holiday, which started out with opening our family Easter basket and a gift from his Obbie:
What a lucky little boy
For our activity, we went for a hike at Quicksilver canyon in San Jose with the dog in tow. Our time was somewhat limited as Zach had grand plans of watching The Masters finale (yawn). So while he did that, I prepped a Greek quinoa salad for the week, bathed bean, did massive amounts of laundry, and planned this week’s outfits. Productivity at its finest.
And now it’s Monday. Let the fun begin.
How did you spend your Easter holiday?
