Not My Idea Of a Quickie...

Hi Y'all!!!! Like my title suggests, this one is going to be a quickie!

First of all- Happy Belated Father's Day to all the dads out there who are reading my blog (how many are there??? *cricket**cricket*) and to my dad. And to my favorite dad in the whole world- Charlie- I miss him so much!!!! The Peanut does too!

End of quarter is this week and I am squeezing in the workouts even though I don't have a lot of time.. but it's good, less time to think you know?!

So yoga. YES. Biking. YES. Getting hot and sweaty for no reason. YES. It's been SO HOT HERE!

Up next; FOOD!

I made almond butter chocolate chip cookies for "my dad". He liked them the last time I made them.. but I still ate most of them!
My mother made fruit salsa and homemade pita chips for an appetizer for Father's Day lunch. She used blueberries, strawberries, kiwi, and peaches. Combine fruit, sugar, and a touch of honey- pulse in the food processor until it has a salsa like texture and inhale. Literally we all did. This bowl was gone in about 5 minutes! SO GOOD!

My dad grilled steak and sausages.. he was in his glory of course! Here was my plate.. I was carbo loading!

So that was Sunday..

Yesterday, I managed to get my workouts in.. walking at lunch time, yoga after work, then another walk to the store with the girls.. then I carbo-loaded again!

Followed by a piece of chocolate and my night was done!

Today I am dealing with some work drama, but all is good otherwise, I got the Peanut signed up for school, registered for the bus.. she is good to go to 3rd grade.. yay!
Hope you are all having a fabulous day! By the way, I loved hearing about which Disney Princesses you all were, looks like we are the whole bunch!!
I'll be checking in tomorrow!!


  1. Oh wow third grade this fall!! I dont know why I thought she was younger ?!! lol! So exciting to get the school stuff done for her!

    Looks like fathers day food was delish! Oh those cookies sound amazing, I would have no self control over those or the pita chips!!

    I know you love forever 21!! Remember we need to go shopping there together soon!!!!!

    Oh you are a coffee addict , how did you quit drinking it? See I love coffee but if someone told me tomorrow I couldnt have it ever again I would be ok, I like fresh juice in the morning alot, I feel I get more energy from that!!

    Love ya girl! xoxo

  2. those cookies look delish :)
    ad iv'e never heard of fruit salsa before, that's definitely something new...
    hope your day's lovely!


  3. Your food pictures always make me so hungry! The dips looks AMAZING! I'm definitely going to try making fruit salsa.

  4. So I'm looking again at that fruit salsa, I'm going to have to find a recipe because that looks awesome and I so want to make it!

  5. Lots of healthy carbs yumm! They feed the brain

  6. Love the looks of the fruit salsa! It reminds me of a fruit compote I used to make, but I have a feeling the raw version would be even better! I just need to get my hands on a food processor...
    Glad you had a good Father's Day!
