Sunday In Pictures Vol. 37

Hello friends! I’m back. After taking last week off to enjoy time at home with family and friends, it’s back to reality today. I’ll do a little recap of our trip tomorrow but today I want to get back into the swing of things with my usual Sunday in pictures. Have a great day 🙂

Breakfast was some fried eggs courtesy of Alex and an apple donut courtesy of the farmer’s market that I went to on Saturday.

“Mom, can I help you make the chocolate cake?”

For lunch, I had a ham sandwich, carrot, pretzels and hummus.

I read more of Losing You by Nicci French.

Mint Nail Polish

By some miracle, the nail polish I had on since my pedicure over Memorial Day weekend was still on. I updated it to this fun mint color though.

Alex’s parents were so sweet to have a little family party to celebrate my birthday that was July 3rd. We had a barbecue with spinach salad, coleslaw, green beans, ribs and chicken.

For dessert I made me own cake. It was chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting. It was SO GOOD!! Rich but absolutely delicious.

Sunday In Pictures Vol. 36

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Honestly I feel like this one absolutely flew by. It was crazy because it feels like I just left work and now I’m back at my desk. Not much you can do about it though. In typical Monday fashion, I’m sharing my Sunday in pictures. Have a great day 🙂

Waffles and Bacon

Waffles and bacon was the perfect way to ease into the day.

Carpet Cleaner

Since we’re really cool people in our early 20s, we rented a carpet cleaner from Home Depot to clean our carpets since I spilled iced tea early last week and there was a giant stain…

Leftover deli sandwich and carrots for lunch.

Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins

While I folded laundry, a batch of oatmeal muffins baked away.

Bailey and I went for a walk and she got all of the sniffs in.

Blueberries

I snacked on a handful of blueberries.

Since the sun was out, I read more of The Flight Attendant by Chris Bohjalian outside on the deck.

Pizza

Alex’s friend was in town so I made some pizza for dinner while he was over.

Sunday In Pictures Vol. 35

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Ours was non stop busy but in a good way. Starting last Wednesday we had plans every day/night except for Thursday. Honestly I could use a second Sunday just to relax ha! Alas Monday is here and it’s time for work. Before the day really gets going though, I want to pop in and share our Sunday in pictures. Have a great day 🙂

After staying up until 2:30(!) Saturday night, I needed to ease into Sunday by reading more of Little Fires Everywhere.

When it’s 80 degrees before 10 am, you skip hot tea and go for iced tea.

img_7004

Since we were SLOW moving to wake up and not that hungry, breakfast never happened. We skipped right to lunch and I had a buffalo chicken wrap.

img_7005

On the way home from the grocery store, I swung by Alex’s parents house to pick up his twin sister Tory. We baked shortcake together for dessert later that night.

img_7007

Alex and Tory went back to their parents house and I took a little break from running around for a quick snack. I cut up a cucumber and added a little light Ceasar dressing and parmesan cheese to the bowl.

img_7008

The finished product for dessert. I used this recipe from Taste of Home and it was a huge hit!

img_7009

Blogger fail but I didn’t get a picture of dinner. It was really good and we even got some leftovers to bring home. We enjoyed steak, salad, asparagus, corn plus basil, mozzarella, and tomato with balsamic on top.

To end the night, Alex and I watched Mamma Mia! on the couch. It’s on Netflix now if anyone is interested.

Sunday In Pictures Vol. 34

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Ours was spent at Tucker and Allison’s wedding, Alex’s brother and new sister-in-law. It was a fun weekend but late nights so we were ready to be home yesterday.

In typical Monday fashion, we’re taking a peek into my Sunday through some pictures. Have a great day 🙂

Bacon, Egg and Cheese Bagel Sandwich

Instead of eating at the Airbnb we stayed at, we opted to head home early and grab breakfast sandwiches from our favorite place near home. A bacon, egg and cheese was a welcome sight!

Picked up Bailey who we missed the past two days.

img_6949

The song of choice while heading to the grocery store.

img_6953

Someone did want to be far from us for a while…

img_6527

A tortilla pizza and some veggies for lunch.

img_6954

Free flowers are the best flowers.

img_6957

Some tea and magazine reading while it rained outside.

img_6958

Pizza for dinner because pizza is always a good idea.

To finish our lazy Sunday, we watched a little over half of American Made.

Sunday In Pictures Vol. 33

Happy Monday! It’s a tad dreary this morning but I have my fingers crossed the sun will peak through later in the day. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Saturday was filled with some shopping and ended with an amazing movie. Sunday had some relaxing in it and ended with dinner with a friend who is moving. Overall it was a good weekend.

In typical Monday fashion around here, I’m sharing my Sunday through pictures. Have a great day 🙂

Sunday started off with some pancakes and bacon for breakfast.

img_6043

I baked another batch of oatmeal muffins (I tweak this recipe) while listening to the Mamma Mia! soundtrack.

img_6868

While the muffins cooled, I finished The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett. It would be a good pool read I think since it’s not intense and a cute story.

img_6609

For lunch, I made a quesadilla with leftover beans and chicken plus some carrots and hummus.

img_6881

My next book is called The Identicals by Elin Hilderbrand. It’s about identical twins who live on Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard but don’t speak even though they live so close. I think it’ll be a good summer read!

img_6882

Bailey and I went on our longest walk to date. She wants everyone to know that tow trucks are a little scary but if you sit down to watch them back up while it beeps, then they aren’t as scary 😉

img_4560

I made a batch of peanut butter chickpea blondies from Joy Food Sunshine. They smelled SO good while they baked.

We watched part of The King’ Speech.

img_6885

Then Alex and I headed to Somerville, New Jersey to meet my friend Greg who is moving at the end of the month. We grabbed dinner at an Irish pub (everything was oddly closed along Main St.) but my corned beef sandwich hit the spot!
