Last weekend was low-key….working around the house, dinners at home, church, etc. It was nice to be home with my family, but I have to be honest – I did have flashbacks of our island trip and it made me miss vacation!
I took Davis to the pool Friday morning for swimming and a “picnic” lunch.
That night I felt the need to get some “superfoods” in our system, plus I had some vegetables left from our CSA. I made a kale and quinoa salad for dinner that included carrots, toasted pecans, cucumber, creamy balsamic vinaigrette, and we topped it with avocado. I may post the recipe soon.
Saturday I had a girls morning with Sarah and Ashley! I wish I had gotten a picture. We were just chatting and catching up too much to remember to snap one.
The rest of the day was spent around the house. Seeing these two together is such a dream come true!
Saturday night I made some very simple tacos: chicken, arugula (from our CSA), avocado, cheese, chipotle sauce. And champagne, duh. 😉
Stickers before church on Sunday. Those Melissa & Doug sticker books are great. The stickers can be used over and over again. I found this one for Marshall’s for around $4.
We attempted a family selfie on the way to church. Davis wasn’t thrilled with the idea, clearly. 😉
Besides last Sunday, when our pastor preached about the tragic events in Charleston, our church has had a “staycation” in June. The sermons have been a little shorter, giving people time to hang out and get to know other after church. This weekend our campus had a bounce house, sweet summery treats, and other games for the kids. Todd and Jeremy convinced some of the kids playing basketball to give them a turn.
We are truly blessed to have so many great friends through church.
Todd had a little assistant when he mowed the yard later that day!
Side note – our back yard needs a ton of work. We have big dreams, but we’re trying to take the house projects one at a time. Maybe it will look better by next Summer?!
Okay, now onto my new favorite hair product! I bought Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray and now I’m hooked. It’s less than $5 at Target, and it’s also on sale at Ulta. I use it on dry hair, before using a curling iron to add loose waves to my hair. My hair is very straight and slick. It is not naturally curly at all. This adds enough texture to my hair to hold the waves, and it gives a natural look. Plus, I can fix my hair when it’s dirty (my hair hadn’t been washed in 2 days). For being so inexpensive, I am very happy with the results. And smelling like the beach is an added bonus.
