It felt good to sleep in a bit this morning, but then that meant that I missed my morning workout, which was crucial because we were gone for the rest of the day. Oh well. Must get back to the gym tomorrow!
I met my friend Angie at Starbucks and poor girl has been going through some major health issues that the docs haven’t quite seemed to figure out yet. I really hope she gets some answers soon.
I enjoyed my first Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season.
source (because I was getting attacked by bees and didn’t want to risk uncovering my lid for a picture)
They’re expensive, so it’s not like I will be buying them every week, but to have one as a treat once in a while will be nice. My goal is to actually use this tutorial from daily nibbles (which is Freshly Pressed right now) and make my own Pumpkin Spice Latte soon.
After quickly eating lunch at home, Craig and I left for my parents house.
Craig spent the whole afternoon setting up the Mac Mini and then we gave my parents a quick overview.
They mostly use their computer for the internet, but at least we taught my mom iPhoto and some other programs.
My parents and I stayed out of Craig’s hair while he set everything up and transfered their old stuff over.
My mom worked on her quilting.
I enjoyed reading this issue of Time magazine.
It seemed like it was tailored for my interests:
and Matt! (Can’t wait to see Contagion and if this weekend wasn’t so busy, we probably would have seen it by now)
I loved the Dr. Oz nutrition article.
My favorite quote was the final one he left readers with.
Reading this inspired me to improve my diet. I think I eat pretty healthy, but I honestly can say I haven’t been incorporating enough nuts, avocados, and protein in general into my diet.
It was nice to lay in the hammock and read in the sunshine.
I stared up at the pretty clouds and just relaxed…
…while my dad pumped up the tires in my car.
After the Mac was all set, we had BLTs for dinner. I enjoyed a soda I had never heard of before–Diet Dang! That’s Good Root Beer and it’s made in Milwaukee!
My parents usually use Miracle Whip, which we don’t love, so my mom pulled out this Smart Balance mayo once I told her how I disliked the whip.
I liked the flavor much better!
Also had some yummy cantaloupe on the side and a lemon bar and brownie for dessert.
I feel so behind on everything since we’ve been gone all day, so adios y feliz fin de semana a todos!
