Weekend Snapshots and a Smoothie

 

Well, like I said in yesterday’s post, I took a boatload of pictures this past weekend and told quite a few people that are in them that I wouldn’t post them on here. I had intended on asking them yesterday, but the day was crazy and I didn’t quite get to it. I did manage to ask Andrew really quickly if I could post pictures from a wedding we went to. He gave me the okay so we’ll just count that for everyone. Ha ha!

I’m always torn whether or not to keep things strictly bloggy blog (you like that?) or include my non-blog friends on here. They’re such a big part of my life, but I’m not sure if they want to be “exposed”. My family, well, they don’t get a choice. Whether they like it or not they’re on here (luckily they don’t read it, so they don’t even know half the time).

Smile

Without further due (and STUFT Daddy’s permission), here’s a little rundown of the weekend.

Warning- there are a lot of pictures of me. Bleh.

An “after” picture from my 19 mile run after work on Friday. (The Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon is just six short weeks away. Yikes!)

The best chocolate milk ever.

Yummy cheap wine (again courtesy of Trader Joe’s).

IMG_9975

Some new Handful sports bras.

IMG_9977

That’s right, I no longer will have to wear my 5 year old, stinky, pre-pregnancy, stretched out bras. Yippee!

IMG_9978 

Um, yes please.

STUFT boot camp with some pretty amazing ladies.

(You like that leaf shadow right on my forehead? That’s pretty cool.)

A “go go gadget arm” while sporting my Halo headband and new bra.

IMG_1177

A dear friend’s wedding. (Can you find STUFT Daddy?)

IMG_0008

Quality time with each other

IMG_0023

and good friends.

IMG_0025IMG_0014

I’m not going to name any names, but there may have been a real life wedding crasher at the party. Pretty funny huh? I was also told at the wedding that I look like Tina Turner. I get that a lot. Ha ha. Random.

An early Saturday night bedtime (and a clock that desperately needs to be cleaned).

IMG_1183

An early morning treadmill run.

IMG_0037

A lesson on how to make espresso.

IMG_1184

Some experimenting in the kitchen.

IMG_0050IMG_0099

(Recipes are for tomorrow’s post.)

A quick trip to stock up on some sale items at Vons. I found this new So Delicious find

IMG_0057

and some spring weekend necessities.

IMG_0058

These are going to last us awhile. The carrier pack is such a great deal sometimes. I didn’t spend more than  $7 on any of those bottles of wine and my favorite wine was only $6.39 (that’s $.60 cheaper than Costco). Yep, that’s how we do it over here.

And finally, the weekend concluded with some fun in the tub.

IMG_1193IMG_1192

Phew. That was a lot wasn’t it?

 

Now for the smoothie. I made up this one based on my favorite drink from Starbucks.

IMG_9988

Protein Green Tea Smoothie with a Kick

1 scoop vanilla protein powder

I serving matcha green tea powder

1-3 teaspoons of instant espresso 

2 tablespoons sugar free vanilla syrup

1 1/2 cups milk of choice (I used a mix of unsweetened vanilla almond milk and vanilla soy milk)

1 cup crushed ice

IMG_9984

Mmm….. almost as good as Starbucks (especially when I drink out of this cup).

IMG_9989

Have a great Tuesday!

    you looked so gorgeous at the wedding! I loved your dress! Also, I might be way off, but just from the couple pictures you put up the bride reminds me of one of the Top Chef judges, Gail Simmons….so gorgeous!

    I love your dress from the wedding, can’t wait for the recipes tomorrow.

    You look so pretty all cleaned up! :)

    Let me know how you like those sports bras – have you bought them before? I need some new ones and everything I see in the sports stores seems to be geared toward the super-duper-support-needed ladies.

  14. 14

    You need to let us all in what you think of the Handful bras! Why are finding good ones such a pain??

    Thanks for the tip about the So Delicious Almond Milk. I didn’t know they made that! I’m on the lookout now.

    BTW – love the dress from the wedding! It’s fun to see what others look like in “real life.”

    • 14.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      I know, finding good sports bras is such a chore. :) Will keep you posted on them for sure. :) Hoping to do a good post on them soon. :) I agree- so fun to see what others look like in “real life”. :)

    Brandi says:

    You’re awesome! I get tired just reading your posts! :) I have seen that almond plus at the super market and debated whether to get some. Looks like a must try!

    • 15.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      Brandi- I got it because it was on sale. I haven’t tried it yet, but am hoping it’s as good as it looks! :) One thing I dislike about almond milk is that it doesn’t have any protein. :)

    Lisa says:

    You look so pretty at the wedding! Sounds like a busy weekend. I love picture posts. And wahoo for wine over the weekend! A great weekend treat always :)

  17. 17

    Pretty, pretty pictures. Your hair is looking good. Did you dye it recently?

    Kathy says:

    Super fun photos and such the variety….loved that! You and Mr. STuFT looked great at the wedding. I think I need to go to a wedding to get all dressed up and “bring back that Lovin’ feeling”…maybe I need to do a little wedding crashing? ;-)

    Guess what? Just bought a new bra over the weekend too…it was too much but sooo supportive during our half over the weekend…and I too had about 5-10 year old, stretched out, saggy things that I put directly in the donation box….now I just need to get my some of the Handful Bras I think.

    • 18.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      Kathy- Isn’t it such a treat getting a new bra? And.. it’s so hard to find the perfect one! :) All my “regular” bras are sooooo worn out and gross. Ugh.
      Thanks for the nice commetns about the wedding. I can’t remember the last time we went to a wedding or got dressed up for anything. It was fun. I think you should definitely try a little wedding crashing. He he!

    Carolyn says:

    The wedding pics are gorgeous. Love the one of you and Andrew, you guys look awesome together! I am so jealous of all your yummy eats. Can you please come to my house and make that for me?:). Especially the chocolate milk and smoothie from “Starbucks”. Hope you are having a good week, nice work on the 19 miler. I seriously don’t know where you find the time to do all this! Your incredible.

  20. 20

    You look beautiful (as always)! Looks like a great weekend with some pretty stylish hair from the boys! Love it. Tell me about the bras! I need details on comfort!

  21. 21

    There are so many awesome things about this post. I hope I mention them all:
    1. You look entirely too pretty and collected after a 19 mile run =)
    2. Cheap wines are our favorite too.
    3. Wedding looks beautiful !!
    4. Do you not watch tv when you run on the treadmill? I HAVE to otherwise I go stir crazy. I keep the volume off but the captions on while I listen to music. It’s a wonder I don’t fall off the treadmill. HA

    I feel the same way about including friends in my posts…it’s an awkward subject to broach so I often just don’t include them…but I want to =)

    • 21.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      I know, the friend thing is so awkward. And…… it’s awkward when hanging out with friends and you DON’T want to tlak about the blog. :)
      1. Don’t be fooled- I was a sweaty mess.
      2. Nothing beats cheap wine. I can’t remember the last time I spent over $8 on a bottle.
      3. It was awesome!
      4. I HAVE to watch TV on the treadmill too. I usually have a movie to watch or of I’m at the gym I try to time it to catch Access Hollywood. LOL. TV and music- you’re a multitasker. :)

  22. 22
    Bridget says:

    Yes!! Include your non-blog friends in your blog!!!! Of course! (but NOT me!!! – everyone else!! ha ha) You look beautiful at the wedding! I bet you did your make-up in the car!!!

  23. 23
    Amy says:

    looks like an awesome weekend!! i want your arms so bad i gotta hit the gym harder haha. oh btw, when you tweeted a pic of that chocolate milk i totally pinned it hah…it sounds SO good! and def gonna have to look for that almond plus..thats awesome

    • 23.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      Oh that chocolate milk is a keeper. You just reminded me I still haven’t opened my Almond Plus yet. :) You can borrow my stroller and my boys for a good upper body workout. LOL.

    YAY YAY YAY YAY for the HANDFUL BRA :-)

    xo

    • 24.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      I can’t thank you enough for telling me about these. I emailed them and told them that you recommended them. :) I’m pretty sure you (and the bras) have changed my life. :)

  25. 25
    Amy says:

    Like everyone else, I’m curious about the bras, too. You would not believe me if I told you how long I’ve had some of mine!

    You look so pretty at the wedding..it is different to see you not in workout clothes ;) This is random, but I love your lipstick you are wearing. Brand? Color?

    I love all the pics!

    • 25.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      I love the bras so far. Will be sure to write an update and little review. :) It’s so weird to not be wearing workout clothes. LOL. I forgot how to try to look nice for the wedding. Lipstick- Estee Lauder lip pencil in chestnut and lipstick Estee Lauder in quiet nude. I don’t think they sell that one anymore. :) I’m not evne going to tell you how old they both are though. I’m lucky I didn’t break out in a rash. LOL.
