First off, thanks to everyone who has participated in the reader survey. I’m going to leave it open for the rest of the week and then share results after. So far the answers have been really helpful!
And now I can share a weekend recap, one day late! Hope you all had a happy Easter We spent ours at my parents’ house with the whole gang. On the menu: PIZZA!My parents’ new house has a pizza oven. Yes, Anthony and I are planning on selling our own home and moving in with them ASAP.My mom set up a toppings station and we went a little overboard! So many different types of cheese. How could you expect me to just choose one. We paired our pizza with a good old Easter egg hunt! Our little nieces and nephews scored some candy and quarters to add to their stash
And I had a little egg hunt of my own to attend earlier in the weekend.
Per a reader recommendation (thanks, Jessica!) I checked out the Green Hills YMCA’s Saturday morning boot camp class. The instructor had us all set up with a fun Easter workout. These eggs weren’t filled with candy. They were filled with exercises! Bah.Fun class! The Easter egg workout was cute but my favorite part of the workout was our 15-minute dodge ball game. Forgot how fun that is.
Other weekend workouts included an easy Sunday morning jog!I covered three slow miles with Anthony (I guess those bunny hops on Saturday wore me out!) around the hood.I don’t know if this pile of stuff counts as street “furniture” or just junk in general. But I never pass up the opportunity to photograph an orphan toilet. And just so you know that we didn’t eat pizza all weekend (though that would have been blissful), here’s a healthy meal we cooked!Anthony and I were both raised Catholic so we skipped out on meat on Good Friday. This lentil/salmon salad from Cook Smarts was fabulous! I added quinoa and croutons for some extra staying power. If I told you we paired this meal with FOUR episodes of the Good Wife, would you judge me?
- Best thing you ate all weekend? (Pizza, obvi)
- Favorite Easter candy/chocolate/dessert? (My mom made banana cream pie and it was awesome)
- Do you usually eat meat every day? (We typically do one vegetarian & one fish meal a week)
