Four Couples and Their Children AKA DOGS!

Our Saturday was filled with relaxation and friends, so perfect!

After lunch we hit up the dog park for Rockies' 1st birthday party. When you don’t have children the first step is having a pet, and boy do we spoil them:) My camera battery died so I only got a few pics. It was a lot of fun and exercise! Revay brought hot chocolate for all of us to enjoy, so I busted out my coffee mug it was in my purse.

We came home and got changed to head out to a fancy Italian dinner with friends. We went to a restaurant called Trilussa. We started off with the most delicious, soft warm bread.

I ordered the PENNE VEGETARIANE (Tomato sauce, assorted chopped vegetables). I loved it, so much I ate the whole thing!

We stayed out late and woke up early, last morning to sleep in before the vacation is over and I didn’t take advantage. I woke up craving Sbux so I threw on my Uggs and sweatpants and hit up the coffee shop. I ordered a tall non-fat ginger snap latte, never had it, loved it!

I tried the O SO LOVED PUFFINS this morning. I have seen these on many blogs and thought it was about time I tried them for myself. WOW they are good, I think they would be even better with PB and bananas I will be trying this soon.

I only had a little because I made a new Sunday morning treat. Homemade Cinnamon Rolls!!! I know that they are not the healthiest food out there, but I love them and I love having special treats on Sunday mornings and so does hubby! They were so warm and yummy:)

We went to church this morning and then we stopped by the Nike Factory Outlet to spend my gift card. I saw so many fun things ,but I went with the practicals.

A running armband for my phone and money. After losing $60 I thought this was a MUST. I also got two pairs of my favorite running socks, and a cute black coolmax tank top.


I had a repeat lunch from yesterday but I did add some tofu to my salad.

Tonight I hope to make something yummy with tofu, any suggestions?  I am loving being a Vegetarian so FAR!

Hubby and I are going to a boot camp kickboxing class today at 3pm I am excited, I loved this class last week! I love being able to workout with hubby, I wish we did it more often. That’s one thing that I hope we change this year. I know that we play softball together and that’s a start, but there is more more we can do together.

Today is the last day of the HBBC Challenge, I can’t wait to see if I won anything, but more importantly I HAD SO MUCH FUN doing it and Runtofinish was an awesome host.

Right now I am watching another movie Monster In Law, so far on vacation I have watched like 20!!!! I have really enjoyed this Holiday, I have spent time with family,friends,new friends, hubby, organizing, vegging, entertaining,reading,running, and cooking! It couldn’t have been better. I hope all of you who were off were able to enjoy it:) I am back to the grind tomorrow, I am trying not to think of all that is going to start this January. Work, school, and training for Boston. Well at least there is much to be excited for! God is good.

Everyone have a relaxing and peaceful Sunday!

I'm making tofu also! I'm going to try the Gliding Calm baked tofu recipe (or some sort of variation) with some sort of veggie and butternut squash fries probably. The baked tofu is very good, even my fam likes it.

That's so funny about the pet vs. kids comparison. We have a million picture of our cat from BEFORE the kids were born, and I don't think a single one from after!

Our cats are our kids so I can totally relate. I just spent 3 hours at the gym for our last HBBC day. I'm sad it's over but happy to be finally taking a day off tomorrow!

When I took Abbie to daycare last year they had a big birthday party for another puppy and Abbie came home with lots of goodies.

On vacation I threw Abbie her own first birthday party, complete with puppy cake and birthday hats!

I have a great tofu recipe with sweet potatoes, black beans and rice. Only thing is it has chicken broth and worcheshire sauce in it. If you want a truly veg meal you could sub veg broth and leave out the worsh sauce, but it's better with it.

If your interested I'll send it to you.
