Linking up with Meghan from Clean Eats Fast Feets for this week’s Week in Review!
I will write more about this in tomorrow’s post but this past week stands out from the rest not just in stress levels (holy shit) but in… drumroll please… HEALTHY EATING. I won’t crop dust you with details quite yet, but as a sneak peak, my Monday consisted of making lists, buying groceries, chopping veggies and roasting them. Oh, and actually eating them. WHO AM I. I also picked up Jake and he and I met my mom for coffee so that she could give him his birthday card. They hadn’t seen each other in a while and so it was a sweet reunion.
And this was the day that I took photos of my cat.
And this is Brandy now, one year later in the same spot on the same couch:
We had a gorgeous sunny week so Callum and I spent a lot of time at the park, except with all the water I was drinking, I ended up needing to use the port-a-potty. Which is, like, bad enough. But guess what? I GOT LOCKED INSIDE. I panicked so hard that I gave myself a blood blister on my thumb trying to bust out. I don’t even want to talk about it.
I started doing core work. I’m doing 100 sit-ups, 30 push-ups, 30 bridges and 30 bridge thingie wingies.
We had Jake’s birthday on Wednesday. I brought him a coffee in the morning and then we took him out for Indian food for dinner. I’ve never seen such a skinny kid eat so much butter chicken in my life. Thursday was garbage day. I posted a picture on Snapchat because it’s too embarrassing to post anywhere else that holds it longer than 24 hours. Follow me if you want the inside scoop! My username is suzyhastheruns.
The kids ran the Terry Fox run and then I picked up Freddy to take him to get new soccer boots. He showed up wearing his Terry Fox sticker, dedicated to “Walter White” who is apparently a character on a show called Breaking Bad. I don’t watch TV so I’m out of the loop, but I scolded Freddy anyway.
Freddy and Callum made a giant mess with cones while the owner of the soccer store and I talked running.
Oh! Besides all the veggies, I also made pumpkin bread with cream cheese icing. It was SO GOOD! I still ate junk but I made sure to fill my bellayyy up with the green stuff first so I probably didn’t eat as much junk as I usually do just for lack of room.
The kids didn’t have school on Friday, so I went for a run while Ethan and Katie spotted Callum. In the afternoon I took Freddy and Katie into Langley and dropped Katie off at my parents’ house, and then we picked up Freddy’s friend Gabe (they’ve been friends since they were in my and Jane’s tummies!) and brought him back here for a sleepover. Callum and I chilled on the couch.
On Saturday I did some blog work…
…and then met Christy for lunch where we had a super huge cry/laugh/stress/life catch-up. SO NEEDED.
Then Grandpa and Grandma Slane took Callum for the night and Andrew and I headed to El Nopal for date night. Then on Sunday we went shopping for some new jeans for Andrew.
He didn’t buy the shirt. 🙁
Then Callum fell asleep in the stroller (he wasn’t feeling well).
We stopped for dinner while Callum kept sleeping.
Even though we woke him up with ice cream, the little guy still wasn’t thrilled about having his sleep disrupted.
We stayed up late last night, had some wine and danced around the kitchen. Now it’s Monday morning, and here we go again!
What’s the highlight of your week last week?
Anyone else battling a virus or two?
Do you own any shirts with inappropriate graphics?
