Ice Cream Date + The Great Outdoors

Hello, and happy Monday! I thought it was going to mostly be an ugly day, but so far, the sun has been shining, and the temperature is supposed to warm up to the low 70’s. It’s the little things that are making me happy. I sure wish we could have stayed home today. Matt’s boss bought a new shop, so they’re in the process of moving all of their inventory while continuing to ship parts that people have purchased, so he went into work both Saturday and Sunday. He definitely needed the day, but life doesn’t hit pause.

Friday

I started the day with trying this frozen entree complete with avocado and jam toast and cuties. It was okay but not the greatest in flavor. But you never know unless you try!

My ensemble for the day. 🙂 I bought this top at Shandi’s Boutique, and it’s so soft and comfortable. Plus I just love the pattern.

Sweet Jackson wanted snuggles and to be held after I got home and fed them! Look at that swishy tail.

Dinner was cajun seasoned baked salmon, simple salad, and pasta salad for me leftover from my lunch from Shandi’s while Matt had Bird’s Eye lentil pasta that is a great go-to.

I just had a banana with cinnamon and pb with tea and honey while we watched Ozark. It’s getting so crazy in season two!

Saturday

I went ahead and made these mini frittata muffins on Friday evening, and I scored our grapefruit. I used a bag of frozen Mexican mixed vegetables, spices, and Tillamook thick cut shredded Mexican cheese blend. Easy and delicious.

I topped my white grapefruit with cinnamon.

We completed our breakfast with avocado toast + EBTB seasoning.

I relaxed with my coffee and cuddled with our sweeties. I loved this daily message by MHN. I finished a word find, which I enjoy doing to relax.

Simi led the first Unmeasured live workout, and it was so invigorating!! I sweat and shook and felt challenged in a great way. Rachel kept me company too. Also, my hair has entered a very shaggy stage. Just rollin’ with it because no reason to fight it. I can’t get it cut for about two more weeks, but I’m very much looking forward to it!

Lunch was a salad with the last of my pasta salad and some of our salmon.

Then I got myself ready to spend the day with Kase!

I hung out with her while she finished getting ready, then she accompanied me on my errands. I finally took our glass recycle to the recycling center, and I dropped off our batteries to be recycled. Then it was off to Cruze Farm!

I chose their Lemon Custard Blackberry Swirl in a waffle cone with sprinkles, and it was the best combination! These are two “vintage” flavors that they brought back for spring. Kaci went with their amazing chocolate with sprinkles.

Taste the rainbow.

Awkward selfie of me to document our twinklet time. Kaci looks so pretty! I think we look pretty similar here, which I love.

I then went with Kaci, Drew, and Axl to hike at Sharp’s Ridge. It was a beautiful day! Just a tad chilly.

You could see the World’s Fair Sunsphere through the trees, which I thought was neat.

Kaci kindly took these of me on her fancy phone.

I later discovered this hitchiker in my hair! I released him outside.

Dinner was leftover soup I had shared in Friday’s post, and I had a tortilla warmed and stuffed with hummus to go with it.

Snackage while watching Ozark included a mug of Greek yogurt with some shredded wheat, pb, and an apple + my delish lemon ginger tea with honey.

Sunday

Unfortunately, Matt had to leave for work before breakfast was ready. I ate a small apple with some pb and raisins while I waited.

I made Alexis’ Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal with her Healthy Cream Cheese Frosting. I absolutely love it! It’s like spring in oatmeal form.

I adore these memories, but they feel so long ago. 😥

He looks annoyed, but he was purring and loving these snuggles! I miss our angel baby. That sweet face. ❤

Rachel chose to nap like this. She’s always been such a silly girl!

I follow the Insta page @vintage, and they shared these two of Lucille Ball. I will always be a huge fan.

Each message just speaks to beautifully to me.

I vacuumed the house then felt like doing an Unmeasured workout. It was stellar, as always! I then made this tasty lunch of greens, hummus, sauerkraut, sweet and spicy pickles, Dr. Praeger’s black bean quinoa burger, avocado, and fancy potato chips.

Thin Mints and milk for a sweet finish.

I took my time getting ready then donned my mask to shop at Kroger. For dinner, we went simple with a sweet kale salad topped with salmon and some baby carrots for more colorful crunch.

I gave myself my second quarantine mani with a new OPI polish I got at Kroger. It felt really nice to do this for myself.

I enjoyed a small mug of Cheerios with pb powder, cinnamon, almond cashew milk, and a small banana while we just relaxed. I didn’t feel like an episode of Ozark since it sometimes wakes me up from the action. Ha.

Monday

“Rainbow Bright” look.

I love this color and can see it being a staple for me this summer.

Have a beautiful week!
