Father’s Day Weekend

Hello! How was your Father’s Day? This weekend FLEW by. Holy moly. Here are a few highlights:

After my Kitty post on Friday, I tried to get the boys to color some bookmarks for Andrew for Father’s Day. IMG_1885

That did NOT go how I thought it would. Maybe it’ll be better next year. ha!

Then we (yes, WE) attempted a longer run with the stroller in anticipation for a 15K race coming up in a couple of weeks. Hmmmmmmm…… I’m kicking myself for not running with the stroller more often. Ugh. The boys are getting heavy and I’m getting SLOW!!! Yikes. I have two weeks to get my butt in gear.

For the record, I forgot to stop the timer so it didn’t take me quite that long (and my pace was NOT a 39 minute mile), but I did really take my time. I have a feeling this race is not going to be as I originally thought.

Friday night was Las Brasas. Mmm… Andrew went to get us food. I tried the chicken burrito for a change (I usually order the exact same thing every time- veggie burrito, no sour cream). Hey, look at all that hot sauce.IMG_1889

Ummm….. the chicken burrito was amazing!!!!! Do you see all that yummy white meat chicken? LOVED it! I have a new favorite thing to order now! Andrew was NOT very pleased that I wanted to take pictures of my burrito at 9:00 at night. Oops. I should’ve put the camera away, but instead I took a picture of my SkinnyGirl margarita (which I still think needs a little something else added to it).

And then some pictures of our our new box of Magnum bars.IMG_1948

The double chocolate were good, but the caramel ones (from this post) were WAY better.

Saturday was a long morning of teaching boot camp and YMCA classes.

Came home to this

IMG_1911IMG_1932

Yes, that’s right. Cat barf and dirty cat footprints in the tub. Ugh. Maybe Kitty was mad about my post from Friday. Maybe he wanted one more good picture that really showed off his chest like this one

Ha ha ha! If you missed the story about Kitty click here to get the scoop.

Oh, and the boys were up to their usual antics.

Thank goodness I had some chocolate afternoon oats and yogurt to get me through the day.

IMG_1917

In the bowl-

  • 2 tablespoons oats
  • 1/2 cup FAGE 0%
  • 1 tablespoon my favorite cocoa powder 
  • 2 splenda packets
  • 1 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • a little vanilla

I only let it sit for about an hour and a half, but it was still just like overnight oats. I experimented with a 3 minute microwave PB2 cookie too. Here’s a sneak peak.

I need to tweak the recipe a bit before I post it.

Andrew barbequed Saturday night while I was in charge of the wine.

My job-

Andrew’s job-

IMG_1945

I have the best husband ever! His chicken marinade was low fat Italian dressing, Coors Light and some Marie Sharp’s Hot Sauce. Soooo good! Check out my potato too- I just put a little salt and pepper, a Laughing Cow Light Cheese wedge, a little Marie Sharp’s hot sauce and a little salsa (on the side). Oh wait, I just remembered, I was in charge of the potatoes too (not just the wine). And cleaning all the squash.

Today-

Look at the cool cards I got for the special occasion.

IMG_1957

Andrew had to work (he say’s that the birds at the Safari Park always have to eat- that’s why he never has holidays off). So we had our banana hooligan pancakes by ourselves.

IMG_1954

Then the boys and I went to church. Woo hoo! Donuts for Dads!!! ( I stayed away, but the boys got their first taste of donuts. Thank you Grandpa.)

IMG_2052

And as usually, a quick diaper change in the bathroom. I can change a diaper anywhere!!!!

IMG_2055

Oh, and I got a little distracted afterwards.

IMG_2056

Some more PB2 cookie experimentation in the afternoon (I need to tweak the recipe a bit before I post it). I tried 3 different versions of it (two of them ended up in the trash- okay, okay, maybe just 1 1/2). Smile Tomorrow I think I’ll get it just right! I can’t wait!!!!!

IMG_1958

and then a TV delivery from my bro and his friend. Smile

IMG_2059

Kitty and I watched to make sure they didn’t screw anything up.

IMG_2060

I helped myself to the coolio vest that was in the back of my brother’s car. Ummm….. can my chin get any higher? What is that?

Hey, speaking of “Chin’s”, that’s where we went to dinner.

Happy Father’s Day.

Two year ago we gave my dad a card with this inside.

You better Belize it! (LONG story- different time.)

    I did not expect to cry reading your post. It was so adorable to see you with your dad, Andrew, and then Grandpa Stehly. I love that picture of him and Andrew. We always said Andrew deserved a wonderful wife and would make a perfect dad. Both are true.
    For the skinny girl margarita, I found that if you just squeeze some fresh lemon juice or lime juice in it…. it is much better.. and of course, lots of ice.

      Good idea with the margarita. I’ll have to try it next time. I added a little sparkling lemon-lime water before, but it was a little weird.

    Great Dad’s Day post! I forget how lucky I am with my hubby and Dad and bro – especially since my Dad and bro live far away and my hubby works a lot and it is easier for me to complain about all I have to do… Thanks for bringing me back to reality – like you, I am so blessed and lucky to have such great guys in my life (so important for my son to have such great role models!).
    I am dying to try the PB2 cookie (and I am getting a shipment of it this week).
    Thanks for all you do for me Kristin!

      Just tried another PB2 cookie. Still a little too dry. I can’t get it just right. Dang. And I’m only trying to eat one a day. Ha! Maybe it just always needs to go with a mocha or something. ha!

    Is that a photo of Kitty on a leash? A little outside time for him? Chandler was doing the same “airball” coughing thing for a while then we realized that it was asthma. I know, a cat with asthma? It was hard to believe but that’s what it was and now he has an inhaler (same kind that people use) that’s hooked onto this mask thing that he gets once a day and it totally works as his coughing/hacking is gone.

    Aww, I totally remember that ultrasound photo and seeing it for the first time.

    Great photos of all the dads!

    I use Crystal Light for my Margaritis…. works well…Hiccup!
    I also loved your Fathers’ Day post. Being a million miles away from my Dad (South Africa) it also made tearful. I love that you appreciate what you have.
