Weekends for me are Saturdays after work through Monday nights. So a Monday night is the perfect night for a weekend update, right? This weekend was full of adventures. Saturday afternoon, this sassy girl

came over to do her laundry and hang out a bit. While her laundry was going, we decided we needed a sweet treat. We headed to a new cupcake place not far from my house and discovered it was right next to the humongous Forever 21. Convenient, right? Cupcakes and cheap clothes all in the same place. Fun! Kellie wanted to go in to look for a necklace, so 30 minutes later we both left with a bag full of goodies. Thanks to the store credit my mom Mom generously donated to me, I was able to update my summer staples, t-shirts ($4.50 a piece, thank you) and sandals. We topped off the evening with some more laundry, pizza and wine (plus digestive enzymes so I could enjoy the evening). Oh and cupcakes:


Sunday was our early Father's Day celebration, since Kellie will be in Italy (me=jealous) next weekend. We were supposed to be doing a family dinner, but decided at the last minute to head up north to follow my Uncle Dave through the AZ leg of his Race Across America. We spent a lot of time either chasing or waiting for him and his crew (in the walmart parking lot with our cooler full of beer. Classy, right?). It was a pretty fun adventure and so amazing to see these guys, who'd been riding since California. Here are a few pictures:

We are all so proud of Dave and hope they continue to have an awesome ride across the country. Go Dave Go!

Spent today working on school stuff, dealing with a variety of frustrations (today was not my favorite day) and taking Shawn for a procedure for his back pain. Fun stuff. I also managed to do the meal planning and grocery shopping. Normally I'm a fan of meal planning, but come summertime and triple digits and I lose my love for cooking. The meals for this week aren't that exciting, but I did manage to make a fabulous throw together salad this evening with quinoa, corn, avocado, chickpeas, pumpkin seeds and cumin lime dressing. Yum! The rest of the exciting meals this week go like this:

  • burritos and guac
  • something with eggs (probably egg sandwiches) and fruit
  • pasta with veggies and homemade pesto
  • Shawn's dinner night (which means takeout)
  • tostadas
What's for dinner at your house this week?
