I’m sure quite a few people may argue, but sometimes I think I have some brilliant ideas. On the other hand, I also admit I have some ideas that really are not the best. I think this past weekend was a toss up with a few of them.
There were a lot of last minute decisions and discoveries that really could go either way.
I’m not sure, but thought I’d share anyway.
Warning- Photo dump coming your way.
(Thank you to Lindsay for using that term a couple weeks ago on her blog. I love it and am using it.)
Friday night are our “date nights”. STUFT Daddy and I don’t get a lot of time together during the week to sit down and chat and have dinner together because our schedules are so crazy. I had planned on making a really yummy dinner.
However, after my last long run and a little “coloring” of STUFT Daddy’s desk
I got lazy and we made a last minutes decision to order some high class pizza.
This is how I do up my veggie pizza (just in case you care).
I like to load it up with lots of nutritional yeast and crushed red pepper. And yeah, I ate 4 pieces. Brilliant, yes?
Something else that was brilliant was finally trying out some compression socks.
I’ve never used them before and was sent these recently. They are supposed to help with muscle recovery and they might just be my new thing.
After finding way more than we needed at Target, we got home to discover that we still had 1/2 a pack of diapers hiding in a different drawer. I hate that.
I was also caught at a weak moment and got suckered into buying these “whistles”.
Then I had the “brilliant” idea to open them in the car for the ride home.
Yeah and I wonder why people don’t want to ride with me?
You know what else? I had to talk these guys into buying these Muppet Band-Aids instead of some car ones. How in the heck could they want cars instead of Muppets? That’s just not right.
I mentioned we found things we didn’t “need” at Target. We may have run out of cat litter that very same day after we got home, but we will definitely not be running out of these STUFT staples anytime soon.
(All Whites Egg Whites, Silk Pure Almond Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk and Soy Slender Vanilla Soymilk.)
Please tell me I’m not the only one who stocks up on these things.
Let’s see- what else? I got to spend some time with my dear college friends Saturday night. I didn’t subject them to any picture taking, but had the best time just hanging out and catching up with my girls. Love them!
and church, we took a little detour to the local street fair.
Our street fair trip was a quick one and I had to dodge quite a few people with the stroller,
but there were a few highlights.
The first thing we found were these cool sock monkeys.
We also found our beloved Scotty B’s hot sauces and got to meet Scotty himself.
I lost Judah about halfway through our trip,
but that didn’t stop me from having to stop at this stand.
Ever since my friend gave me this glass straw, I’ve been a little obsessed.
Naturally I had to chat up the nice people at Simply Straws to see what other straws I might “need”.
Despite what these guys thought,
I’d say our trip was pretty successful.
Um, yeah, I just might be that lady sporting my own favorite hot sauce and glass straws to restaurants.
You know what else was brilliant?
Last night my crumbly cauliflower pizza crust was a little prettier than normal.
Although just as crumbly.
I took this dark chocolate frosting and froze it in between some wax paper.
It made a nice little frozen fake chocolate bar.
I cut it up and mixed it with Katie’s ice cream so I had some healthy chocolate chunk ice cream.
I know. Brilliant.
Before I go, the winner of the Aerobie Flying Ring is Lindsay. yay! Your nephew is going to be so excited! Email your information to me (again) and I’ll pass it along! Yippee!
Have a good one friends. Hope you had a great family filled weekend.
Oh sure, NOW they like the Muppets.
