Happy Friday, guys! It’s weird, because all week felt like either a Thursday or Friday, and now here we are and it somehow feels like the beginning of the week. It’s been a relatively low key week over on our end. I sort of love these weeks because it’s a lot more one on one time with Wes. Backing it up…
Monday: I made a batch of these Baked Breakfast Cookies on Sunday night in hopes of enjoying them for a couple of breakfasts throughout the week. So I had a couple on Monday morning, and….eh. I wasn’t super impressed by them at all. But it didn’t hurt to try, and I already had all the ingredients on hand.
Once Wes was up and had his breakfast, I bundled him up and we walked down to the grocery store. I love doing some grocery shopping on weekday mornings, but I do NOT love the female cashiers that want to grab my son’s hands and give him germs on weekday mornings. There’s an etiquette for that, people! after some play and lunch, we bundled up again and walked down the street to the swings. Wes loved it per usual but the wind picked up and we headed home shortly after.
For dinner, I made a super quick and easy chicken fried rice. I’m pretty impressed with the turnout considering I made the entire dish while holding Wes! (Tyler was downstairs working out and Wes decided he didn’t want to sit in his high chair any more. Pff) I recommend making fried rice from scratch rather than ordering takeout any day!
And my latest purchase arrived in the mail: 22 Minute Hard Corps! I am so excited to get started on this, but I just have to get through a couple more weeks of T25 Beta first.
Tuesday: I attempted to take photos of Wes for his 11 month birthday. The kid is a speedy little guy!
After the whole ‘ordeal’ I gave him a bath (with a new aromatherapy oil I received) and he napped for almost 3 hours! We were afraid this would totally screw us come bedtime, but it didn’t! WINNING.
I intended on making loaded baked potatoes for our dinner, but I opted to chop up my sweet potato and eat it deconstructed instead. Delicious choice.
Wednesday: I tried to make pancakes for breakfast, but only had one egg left. FAIL. I whipped up a batch of avocado protein pancakes and they tastes SO GOOD but the consistency is still a bit off. I’m hoping to play around with this a bit more because avocado and pancakes? Yes please.
The big outing for the day was a trip to Superstore. I really only needed to get a veggie to include with dinner, but we ended up browsing the store for over an hour. Wes loves being in the cart and the store is so dang big that we didn’t look too crazy going up and down every aisle. Plus, the ladies love him 😉
His face is so funny in that pic!
Dinner was some tortellini and zucchini. Boring, but it hit the spot.
Thursday: I broke my 39 day anti-coffee streak. THANK GOD I DID. I initially gave it up because I was having a bit too much and was having a hard time sleeping. Now, I’m drinking it again because I’m still no longer sleeping AND I was a huge unhappy beast. Coffee saves relationships people.
I also reintroduced my favorite Shakeology into my daily routine. Coffee + Shakeology + Fizzy water = the best triple threat ever.
I feel better already. PHEW.
We dressed in green and played with some random green things around the house to celebrate St. Patty’s day. AND GUESS WHO DECIDED TO START CRAWLING?! I have a few videos on my phone of it, but they’re super long and probably 100% boring to anyone besides me and Tyler.
I met up with my friend Jen once Tyler got home. She moved to Vancouver a while back and I hadn’t seen her in forever! We went to an Irish pub (duh) but there was a wait for a table and we ended up sitting outside with drinks for TWO HOURS before deciding to relocate for dinner. It was an early evening and timing worked in my favor because I caught a train/bus home without having a single minute to wait for either!
And here we are at Friday! Forecast for this family? Lots of together time. And a Costco trip, obviously.
Love me some sweet potatoes!! I need to eat more of them…that and broccoli! I love it roasted with garlic in the oven.
Me too. I’m totally having it with dinner again tonight
Sounds good, bring some over! 🙂 🙂
Sounds like a pretty good week. And congrats on Wesley crawling. It is a huge milestone. Get ready for dirty clothes though. I can’t believe how much my girls pick up on the knees and legs from crawling. Makes you want to clean everything daily. haha.
Oh, I’m more than ready. Our dogs pretty much have destroyed our floors so I’m already on husband-sock-duty like it’s a second job! haha
This post reminds me that I really need/want to make sweet potato nachos. Maybe this weekend. Yes, that sounds like a good plan for the weekend.
Mmm, so good. It’s so hard for me to find good sweet potatoes in the grocery stores here, so when I do—I eat them for daysssss
Aw he’s crawling! How exciting! Now you’ll never be free again! 🙂 You’ll be chasing his baby-butt all over the house 😉
haha i know! I still need to buy a gate for the stairs and figure out how to barricade the fireplace
Crawling!!! Oh boy, Mama, Get ready!!! 🙂
haha i know. i’m on full alert!
I’ve been wanting to try Shakeology forever… I’ve heard so many great things!
Also, sweet potatoes are amazing! Now, I’m craving them… 😉
PS I want to see crawling videos!!
Not gonna lie it totally blows any other supplement out of the water! (Not sure if you’ve ever ordered through another coach, but I’d be honored to be yours!) if you lived closer I’d give ya a scoop to try 🙂 I’ll try to catch some more videos this weekend to post!
I love all your pro shots and then our dinner selfie! It was so rad seeing you (alright next time we need to have a Wes friendly outing because I need to meet that kid) and I hope you are able to visit!!
Yes…definitely a visit! Where we go out and stay out later than 8:30 haha
Yay for crawling!! Your whole is going to change now! 😉
I’d love to know your shopping list for costco! Do you guys go every weekend? Just wondering if there are some things I should be getting there over a regular grocery store!
It’s usually a rotating list since we run out of different things at different times. We get all our meat, most produce, eggs, household items (toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning supplies) pantry staples and various odds and ends. I think we go maybe every other week? The time we go every week is usually just to pick up one or two things. Oh, and BACON!
