surviving the food coma

I didn't get around to posting yesterday because I was recouping from, you know, napping, eating and super bowling... ha ha! But in all seriousness, our weekend was so good! It was just what we needed considering it was Eric's last weekend off for awhile... we are now entering survival mode again for the rest of the month with his crazy work schedule!
 

After lots of food prepping (okay, mainly Eric prepped food, he's the best!) I stole Mia away for a little girlfriend date, just the two of us! She has been pushing me to my limit these days with her "threenager" attitude and we were both in need of some alone time. I told Mia we could go ice skating of hiking and of course she picked ice skating! It only took a few minutes to get comfortable with her little "walker" until she decided she was a pro at ice skating, ha! I heard a lot of, "don't touch me!" or "leave me 'lone!" or "I gonna go FAST now!" or "hey! wait for me! I'm gonna follow you, friends!" to the random kids skating around us :) Mia also loved to try to copy the kids which mean a lot of sitting on her bum (because the kids kept falling, ha ha!) and occasionally ditching the "walker" to try and skate by herself... at one point I had to tell Mia that if she didn't hold on with both hands the whole time we were going to have to leave.
"but WHY?!"
"Because you are too little! This is only your first time."
"I not too wittle!"
"Why do you have so much attitude?!"
"I NOT ATTITUDE!"
Well, okay then. Ha ha! Mia keeps asking when we are going back... it felt good to have nothing on the agenda but to have fun together! I think we just found the perfect mommy and Mia date during the summer time! The ice skating rink will be a sweet relief from the triple digit temps!

Sunday was the perfect day of church going, napping, cuddling and good stinkin' food! Eric made 3 different cake pops and guacamole stuffed onion rings (oh yeah, they are definitely as good as they sound!) and I whipped up some spicy chicken tacos. Plus we gorged ourselves in the chicago mix popcorn from costco... which we lovingly refer to as "popcorn crack". So addicting! Eric wasn't too happy about the Bronco's win, since they are the reason the Patriot's didn't make it to the super bowl, ha! I didn't care about the game, I was in it for the food ;) We laughed the hardest at the doritos commercial, and James was a dancing machine (with a little help from momma) during the half time show! Of course he called it quits once we tried recording it, ha ha! I was sad to see the weekend go, I'm counting down the weeks until we get to have Eric back! Until then, I'll be drowning my sorrows with the left over (I'm not sure how there's any left?) popcorn crack ;)
