{Weekend recap} beer. bikes. clouds. hail.

The weekend began with dinner at a local pizza place…which means sharing a pitcher of beer. 🙂

Saturday, we decided to venture to Taco Bell and try the new Doritos Taco. My thoughts…eh…not bad…but nothing amazing. Just kind salty. I think I will keep my Doritos and tacos separate from now on.

Being that it was St Patrick’s Day and we had no sitter, we decided to have some friends over to just hang out after the kids had gone to bed. “Just hanging out” turned into drinking our way through a LOT of Yeunlging. 😉

Sunday after church, we all changed clothes and headed out of our bikes for a family bike ride at Three Creeks Metro Park. This is one of the things that I LOVE about living here. We have so many amazing Metro parks right near our house that makes it so easy to get away and out into nature for a bit. Perfect Spring Day!

Then…Sunday evening, the storms rolled in…and these were some MASSIVE storms! Tornado warnings, hail, wind, rain, lightning, and the craziest clouds I have ever seen. The boys were completely freaking out (as the thought of storms terrifies them) but I was enjoying it. I have never seen hail like this before!

Okay, the stupid picture didn’t stay rotated like it was supposed to be and I can’t seem to figure out how to fix it now so deal with it. My 5:00 pm…grapes, Facebook, and Twitter!

What I Wore {sunday} rock n roll meets jersey shore…

Today I woke up to the freezing cold again, which means I really struggled to find something to wear to church and lunch. I am so over my “winter clothes” but all of my “spring clothes” were way to cold for today. (As I type this, I am looking out to snow falling…and sticking. Yuck!) When I was watching CougarTown last week, I fell in love with Laurie’s (Busy Phillips’ character) outfit. She was wearing black pants, a black blazer, and a black and white graphic tee. I couldn’t find a black and white tee in my closet that I liked, so I went with this pink one instead.

What I Wore {Saturday} lunch, movies, lounging…

My parents are visiting this weekend (hi mom and dad!) so we decided to go out to lunch and then take the kids to see The Lorax in 3D. Knowing that it would be either freezing or a sauna in the theater, I chose to dress in layers. I wasn’t quite expecting it to feel like a sub-zero freezer, however. Anyway…comfort was key for my outfit today…and warmth since it is suddenly winter again. Grrr…

Portion control {weight loss}

image

We went to the grocery store lady night to get some healthy snacks for the weekend. If you are at all like me, convience is key when it comes to eating healthy. If I have to spend more than 60 sec preparing a snack when I am hungry, chances are I will just grab something not healthy. So, instead I spent 20 min portioning out some healthy snacks so that they are ready when I am. Yum!
