Hi buddies! Happy Monday! I hope you had a stunning weekend. We had an ideal one as a result of we celebrated my nana’s birthday!
More on all of that enjoyable under. 🙂
Friday was a fairly enjoyable day. I caught up on some chores and had eggplant parm leftovers for lunch (one of many magic meals that tastes higher the subsequent day),
and Liv and I watched a few of The Babysitter’s Club on Netflix. Thank you to these of you who let me know that it was a sensible choice! It form of flew over P’s head, however Liv was into it. I ordered among the novels for her with photos to see what she thinks. 🙂 BBS was such an enormous a part of my childhood, so it’s enjoyable to share this together with her. (I at all times wished Claudia’s outfits.)
Friday night time was our weekly “dinner at the pool” celebration. I sit up for this ALL WEEK as a result of it means I get a margarita and I don’t must cook dinner. Wins throughout.
I additionally watched some Zac Efron… I imply Down to Earth. 😉
Saturday morning, Liv and I cranked by her summer time packet whereas P practiced her letters, and we spent the afternoon at my dad’s home swimming. The ladies love going over there – they constructed the children probably the most beautiful playroom and my stepmom at all times has fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies – and I really like getting to sit down within the yard and chat with them. It’s been extraordinarily scorching and muggy recently, so we take any probability we will get to be within the water.
Snapped a fast pic of my lunch as a result of it was so satisfying:
(Siete tortillas with hummus, leftover roasted eggplant, Violife feta, kalamata olives, and spinach with a facet of strawberries)
Dinner was turkey lentil loaf, white candy potatoes with butter and cinnamon, and salad.
(Not probably the most appetizing image nevertheless it was so good.)
Sunday was nana’s birthday! I put the decision out on Instagram for concepts on how one can make it particular throughout such a bizarre time and acquired so many considerate options. From getting sporadic deliveries, to yard indicators, to a household video message montage, mariachis (we did this one a few years in the past and in truth I actually wished to do it once more), the women making a choreographed dance for her, and so forth. SO many nice options! In the top, donut celebration within the yard gained. The ladies and I introduced a pair dozen donuts from Dunkin’ and madre introduced a carafe of espresso. The kiddos performed conceal and search within the driveway and appeared for seashells whereas the adults sat underneath the carport and talked. It was low-key and excellent.
Afterwards, we got here dwelling to hang around for a bit, I caught a fast exercise and put the meal plan collectively for the week. We spent the night at my mother’s home, consuming dinner within the yard and swimming.
(We introduced one of the best pasta salad ever, the cake from Nadine’s bakery, and a bottle of wine. Madre made wonderful salmon, grilled veggies, tacky potatoes, and hen meatballs within the sluggish cooker. It was a feast!)
While issues are completely totally different this 12 months, we’re nonetheless discovering methods to be collectively exterior. I’m so prepared for all of this to be over, ya know?
Happiest birthday to somebody we’re so fortunate to have. <3
