How was everyone’s weekend? I hope you got to spend some time with family and friends or at least get a little extra rest in over the long weekend.
I had a great weekend hanging out with my family. My grandparents have a cabin at the lake, and we’ve been going down there for vacation since I was born, but Jon and I haven’t been in several years. It was a bit like going home after a really long time away. So sweet.
Here’s a quick picture recap of the weekend
My step-dad’s birthday was Saturday, so I attempted to make cookies and have them ready when he and my mom arrived. Unfortunately, the baking soda we packed had less than half as much as we needed, the oven at our cabin is on the splits, and this cookie sheet…well, you can see it for yourself. FAIL
My great-grandparents built this cabin in 1960 (give or take a couple years:). Even though it’s old and a bit small, it holds so many special memories and we love it.
Olive isn’t quite sure how she feels about the lake yet

work hard, play hard, right?
she knows how to tell us when it’s time to head home
Happy 4th of July from our family to yours!
Today has been a little slow…and it has actually been quite nice! For some reason, despite my laid-back weekend, I am exhausted! Plus, it has been storming off and on all day; Olive and I have been a bit lazy. My afternoon appt. with Mohammad even got cancelled. He called to say it wasn’t a good time for him because of the rain. lol. So endearing to me because the Thais used to do stuff like that all the time. love it:)
I did manage to make it to Piyo this morning, and got quite a workout! The more I practice piyo, the more I love it.
For breakfast I threw together a yogurt bowl
whole soy peach yogurt, 1/3 cup raw oats, frozen cherries and chia seeds!
And just a few hours later I was ready for lunch
Amy’s split pea soup with black pepper and sea salt
Don’t forget about the giveaway coming up in celebration of my 100th post! Details are soon to come…
What did you do over the weekend?
