Happy weekend every one! I know it’s Sunday and we are all starting to wind down for the upcoming week but I am in a lovely mood after a fabulous weekend! The week days completely suck for me- Hans is usually out of town and I spend my time applying for part time jobs, going to yoga, taking walks and lounging by the pool.. I know, it sounds fabulous right?? Well, trust me, it gets old! But, the weekends are what hold my sanity together, I love spending time with the one I love. Awww, super corny.. but oh, well.. get over it 😉 hehe..
Saturday we went to the U.S. Whitewater Center in Charlotte. It has been open for a few years and we have gone there several times to go biking but we never paid any mind to the other activities that they had to offer. Some new friends went with us and we went zip lining and white water rafting! It was soo much fun! The only thing I have to gripe about is that I have no photos to show for it because we could have no “loose items” on us. But, it was a blast.
Today Hans and I got up super early to hit the biking trails before it got too hot (I think it got to 98 today? Crazy hot!) I really enjoy mountain biking as a fun activity to do with Hans. I am getting better at it but I had a minor crash last week so I have been a bit hesitant to get back on my bike and I definitely needed a ride like I had today to give me back my confidence.
Some random eats during the weekend.
Oatmeal w/1 banana, cinnamon and about a tsp maple syrup (Yes, I am a crazy woman who craves oatmeal in 90 degrees)
Weird Swedish meal that Hans was craving- shrimp from Ikea (yes, they have food!) on toast with light mayo, a side salad and a glass of pinot noir. Shrimp and toast is delicious, don’t hate! 😉
Salmon stuffed with shrimp, dill, and cream cheese that I picked up at Trader Joe’s.
It was good but the salmon was a bit dry, the side of asparagus made up for that.
And a chicken quesadilla.. yes, you heard me.. chicken. I gave up meat for a little over a month (not seafood) and I just couldn’t take it any more. I didn’t have any energy and my body was just craving chicken, so I gave in BUT from now on I will only purchase local, cage free chicken and local, grass fed beef, etc. I plan to keep my meat intake lower than before but every so often I want to enjoy a little.
This quesadilla was amazing! Exactly what I had been craving- organic jalapeno tortillas w/chicken, pepper jack cheese and tomatoes along with salsa and guacamole for dipping, delicious!
And I must add a little fashion to my post to make it complete. I found a fantastic dress at Bebe this afternoon, and I knew I must try it on. It was the last one and it was my size- we were meant to be!! Now, I am making up an excuse to wear it next weekend!! Hhmmm.. I will think of something 😉
Good night, xoxo
