It’s Friday and I couldn’t be happier. This week has been a little chaotic and long… Marc had to work late every single night so I had to bring Ava to Boot Camp twice this week and then we did a little Ava swap-a-roo before class started and he brought her home. Our schedules just seemed a little off and the weekend is much needed for our family!
Tomorrow is Marc’s Birthday!!! WOOHOO. I love birthdays and now we have back to back Birthday weekend celebrations. Marc is turning 31 and he said to me last night that this means he is closer to 40 years of age then he is 20. I know he was joking when he made that comment but it made me laugh. Age is just a number
Now, onto the topic of this post and some of my favorite things this week.
These PLAIN OATMEAL packets can be a savior. Although it is lazy, lets be serious sometimes it’s all about convenience. I mixed this up with some whole milk and cinnamon for a mid morning snack a couple of times this week and I’m hooked.
A freezer staple for our family are these frozen bags of FRUIT, this one in particular is mixed berries from Stop And Shop but Trader Joe’s has GREAT frozen fruit as well. We all love them as a snack or mixed in with yogurt. Ava likes them when her teeth are bothering her, but she also enjoys them with her meals.
There’s a trend here with fruit. This next thing I love is SEA SALTED WATERMELON! I know you are thinking WHATTT?? But don’t knock it until you try it. It is a great post workout snack that keeps you hydrated and replenishes the sodium you lose through exercise. I have low blood pressure and salting things with sea salt is an easy way for me to keep my blood pressure stable. Please try it
Speaking of lazy. Another snack I love are these gluten free Van’s Waffles. I have had them on several occasions over the past couple of weeks. Marc and I particularly enjoy them as a night time dessert with some peanut butter and mini chocolate chips
I mentioned this in my WIAW post on Wednesday, but Mamma Chia has nailed it with this Blackberry Bliss pouch. It is a perfect on the go snack that you can eat in the car, at work, or even at home when you are running around! I bought this at Whole Foods.
I am still on a Dunkin PUMPKIN COFFEE KICK. I had a coffee this morning and I can’t tell you how excited I was that they still had pumpkin coffee.
I will leave you all with this adorable picture of my two favorite little ones. Ava is such a character and Cooper will literally let her get away with anything, including rolling on top of him!!
Looking back at the week it really wasn’t so bad I ate some great snacks, got in some great workouts and I was sore all week, which was surprisingly nice. HHAHA
What is some of your favorite things from the week?
Any fun weekend plans?
