Hey my Blog family!
Happy Sunday to all. Many apologies to those who read the Fitness Friday posts as I did not manage to gett’er done this week to post on time. I tried, I really did but I went home to visit the family this weekend and with the travels on Friday and chilling with my parents, the time got away from me. Stay tuned for this weeks topic to be posted next Friday on the wonderful Canada Day!
So, how was you weekend?
Mine has been quite nice. As I mentioned, I went home to celebrate my birthday (1 week in advance) with my family as my actual birthday (July 3) will be celebrated with my housemates. Lets share my day in pictures shall we?
Yesterday involved a lot of …
Post gym Pedi’s with my Mama…
And I even got my hair blown out just cuz I felt like an extra dose of pampering. And I really didn’t want to put forth an hour of my life on that day to wash my hair…
At 4pm, the grandparents began to arrive…
Grandma and Grandpa enjoyed playing with the monster who went between jumping to get everyones attention to squirrel and chipmunk stalking.
I didn’t know until yesterday that chipmunks screamed…
We have to always keep an eye on our furry monster as she likes to try to attack anything that moves…and apparently there is a raccoon that has taken a liking to our backyard lately so that warrants a lil bit more eyes on da pooch.
One of the best pictures I have with my Nana and Papa recently I think. That lighting with the beautiful weather just made for the best paparazzi moments.
FYI, my Nana and Papa have been married for more then 55 years and I still managed to catch them in a moment of just staring each other in the eyes with a look of lust. OMG I melted.
I also was super active on zee snapchat (lilmisscross91) and managed to capture a cute moment between them two. 😉 Yeah I’m a creeper now…
As you can see, selfie game was on point. I’m starting to not be as camera shy anymore. TBH I was afraid of the camera for a bit because I was self conscious of people seeing me so thin, but you know what, I’m working at it, them dimples are starting to remerge and take over my face again and I don’t care what others think anymore.
I’m gunna be snap happy if I wanna.
And it’s my birthday, so I do what I want 😉
I’m not a brat I promise….just a revelation moment.
Lots of Puppy Lovin…
Maggie was pooped after all of her running around in the 30 degree heat but that didn’t stop me from kidnapping her for more pictures. Look at the face, can you blame me?
Today also included a lot of BBQ foods….
We had quite the meat spread going (burgers, dogs, and sausage) and a potluck of sorts for the side dishes. We did a simple bowtie pasta salad, Grandma and Grandpa brought a garden salad and Nana and Papa brought their famous potato salad that makes my Dad all kinds of happy. Mama cooks things best and if he had to eat that for the rest of his life, he would never complain.
I made two awesome skewers of shrimp and veggies covered in basil to throw onto that garden salad with some extra prepped sweet tater chunks. Went down easy and reminded me how good simply grilled shrimp is.
Happy Birthday To Me…
For candle blowing out purposes, my parents snagged a DQ ice cream cake for the fam to enjoy. They quite liked it. That thing would kill me so I opted out and just enjoyed the company and the rest of the evening with them.
It was a day full of love and relaxation and a lil bit of beauty-ing and I ain’t mad about that!
Hope you have a great rest of your weekend my friends!
