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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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.

Question of the day: What’s one highlight from your weekend?

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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.

A Surprise Baseball Game

Happy Saturday friends! Sorry for the slightly late post. Alex and I had our second date night in the past three days last night so I was tired when we got home and wanted to head to bed. Have a wonderful day ๐Ÿ™‚

Scrambled Eggs and Bacon

Friday started off pretty good. After getting ready for the day, Alex and I realized we had time for bacon so we made some to have with our eggs for breakfast. Bacon starts any day on a good note.

At work, I started readingย Little Fires Everywhereย by Celeste Ng. It’s the story of the Richardsons who have four kids and live in a suburb of Cleveland. The story starts out with the tenant in their rental house leaving in the middle of the night and the youngest child sets the house on fire the next day. Rewind a year when the tenants moved in and somehow that leads to little fires everywhere in the house. So far so good through the first 5 chapters.

When I got home from work, I had some packages waiting for me so I tried all the dresses on while Alex had a work call. Once that was done, I made some homemade ice cream for a dinner we have tonight (hopefully it freezes well and tastes like ice cream!) before we headed into the car. Alex called me Thursday afternoon while both of us were at work, which is unusual, and he simply asked “Do we have plans Friday night?” I responded no and he said great we’re going on a date and hung up. The first stop was dinner at Hoagie Haven in Princeton. It’s one of Alex’s favorites and it hit the spot.

We got in the car and started driving to Trenton which is somewhere we never go. The entire way, I was guessing potential places and he said no to all of them. I actually guessed right though with a baseball game! The weirdest part was I had a dream that we were going to a baseball game and I never remember my dreams, it’s like we had ESP about it or something lol. Apparently a girl he went to high school with posted on Instagram that she had tickets but couldn’t go. Naturally Alex slid into her DM’s to snatch them for us haha. The Trenton Pork Rolls, formerly Trenton Thunder, is the minor league team for the Yankees. For all we know, we watched the next Derek Jeter play last night!

img_6989

It ended up being absolutely beautiful for a game. The seats were basically behind home plate and we chatted while sipping on a beer as big as our head during it. Seriously, the beer was huge. The atmosphere was very kid friendly and the family behind us had two little boys that were providing us with some funny entertainment during it. Overall the game was really well until the 9th inning. It was tied 2-2 when the Erie Seawolves scored 3 points on one hit. We decided the Pork Rolls probably weren’t going to win it and headed home to bed instead.

Question of the day: Are you a baseball fan?

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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!

img_6946

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.
