cele-bra-tion.

I love me a screaming toddler... pictures are so fun these days!
Father's Day weekend was another simple, relaxing one for the books! Except for when I ran a 5k with Laura Saturday morning. We haven't been hitting the pavement as well as we did last summer (we need to get back on track!) but we kicked butt during our race, if I say so myself! I got 2nd in my age group and Laura got 1st in hers! This is the first time either of us medaled in a race!
Oh and then we went to the grocery store four different times, f o u r, on Saturday because we kept forgetting various items. The worst part was when one tiny human being turned into a monster because she was beyond ready for dinner, and Eric couldn't get the grill to start... because we were out of propane. Thus entering his billionth trip to the store. I'm good if I don't go grocery shopping for the next month... except I need to go today.
And then there's the time when Mia woke me up at the crack of dawn Sunday morning (this waking up with the sun stuff is for the birds, Mia, THE BIRDS!) so I baked my little hiney off all morning long! This is rare for me, and it's even more rare when my baking turns out, so Eric was pleasantly surprised with his Father's Day homemade oreos! It was my first time ever making them and I've had so many ask for the recipe so I'll definitely be sharing later this week!
Our weekend also consisted of lots of naps, spoiling Eric for Father's Day (although he did get stuck with one diaper change while I was making dinner, good timing Mia!), calling our dad's (I hope they know how much we love them!), no picture taking on Father's Day (the only one we got with Eric in it all weekend is that peach of a picture up top) because that's a huge gift for him, picture hater, and season 4 of Duck Dynasty. Because no Father's Day is complete for a small town, red neck wannabe, gun loving man without that hilariously ridiculous show! I hope your day was good, Eric!

I can't wait for you to share that recipe! Your IG pic looked so yummy :) Do you have any grocery delivery places near you?? Sometimes I use the one in my area, when I'm feeling super over the grocery store visits. (And usually just pre-packaged things like paper towels or peanut butter, etc, because I want to pick out my own fruits/veggies/meats...)

Ugh, that's the worst, worst, worst forgetting stuff at the store. I hate it too.

Way to rock it out at the race :)

The store thing happens to us all the time!

That store thing was me yesterday! But good thing when I forgot the cilantro I told my hubby, I"m making Guacamole for you and I forgot the cilantro (actually truth be told, I was in a hurry at the store and picked up Parsley, everyone does that once right?), he was all too happy to oblige since he was getting something yummy in the end. Good for you on rocking the 5K! That's awesome.

sounds like a lovely fathers day!!

i sort of wish we could have just stayed home all day on Father's Day & cooked! Instead we had church, and then we trucked it to both of our families houses for Father's Day lunch & dinner! I was exhausted by the time we got home last night at 8:30!

Way to go on your race!!! That's so awesome! And four times to the store in one day? I would have been a crazy person! I very much dislike grocery shopping in general! Haha

Desiree Macke said...

Homemade Oreos? Sounds incredibly dangerous. :)
