This was the best weekend ever in the history of the world.
"but how can a weekend be so fabulous?", you ask?
let me tell you.
where to start.......
Friday the kids had a birthday party, which meant a quick date for us--we hit up sushi.
We then fell asleep at 9:30.
on a friday night.
soccer all saturday morning for the kiddos.
yard work....mowing. clipping.trimming.dog-poo-picking-up. the usual.
an aaaaamazing trail run for myself with some nice elevation gain, lots of sunshine, little mud.
sunday was quiet with church, a nap, and a drive all the way to the tip top of a mountain where spring has not yet sprung.
so what made this weekend the best?
Robby has been gone the past two weeks.
He's been in South Africa.
WHAT?!! I know.
Two weeks! Africa!!
In almost 10 years of marriage we have never been apart for that long.
It was the WORST.
I might have thought I was going to die, but I might also be dramatic.
The days were longer than normal, the nights stretched on forever.
But somehow, I made it through.
His return Friday was the best day of my life, and we have been inseparable since.
It was a good reminder that even the simplest of activities (even picking up dog poo) are more enjoyable when you are with your favorite people.
here are a few photos from our little sunday drive.
we are currently going through 40 billion photos he took in Africa, and we will get those up soon.
and because I have been depriving you all of food these past few weeks, here is a salad I am curretnly obsessed with.
-mixed greens of your choice
-roasted beets (sliced, tossed in olive oil, and roasted at 425° until fork tender)
-grilled asparagus (tossed in olive oil, salt and pepper, and grilled for a few minutes)
-crumbled goat cheese
this salad is a perfect lunch, we've also added grilled chicken (with a little olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper) and made a dinner out of it.
toss in a simple balsamic vinaigrette.....I don't usually measure ingredients when I'm making a dressing (sorry!), but this is a really easy combo of
all mixed together and tossed with salad
How was your weekend?
