Mama’s Tacos

Guess what friends? It’s almost FRIDAY!!! This week has been so crazy busy from cross county workouts, kickboxing classes, to dinner dates!! This is why I look forward to vacations :), but I do love every minute of what I do. Thank for  all of your vacation ideas , they really got me thinking and excited about next summer.

I had leftovers at lunch today, the spaghetti from last night tasted even better then last night ! I loved the idea that a reader gave me today about adding balsamic vinegar into the sauce instead of Stevia, I will try it soon.

I was munching all day today, I split this amazing bowl of light kettle corn with the boss. This stuff is addicting!  I also had some cantaloupe,fruit snacks, and PB+Arnolds not pictured.

After work I went to the camp where my kiddos were at. The high school I am teaching at is so small that they all go camping the first week of school, a true bonding experience.

I got to introduce myself to them all as their new Athletic Director and Cross Country Coach. I had a ton of students sign up for all the sports this year, it was a very exciting time for me as a new AD.

When we were done, Hubby and I had dinner with my Mama and Brothers. She made some pretty amazing homemade tacos!!

My Mom had these Michelob Ultra Amber Beers in the fridge so I thought I would give one a try, drank about 1/4 and decided I wasn’t a big fan :(.

My plate, two tacos, watermelon, and some black beans.

Don't you love our fancy dinnerware? Mama hates doing dishes!

I brought my Peach Cobbler that I made last night topped with Vanilla Bean Ice cream, it was a big hit. It tasted truly scrumptious. Just the right amount of sweetness to have a nice portion size.

After sitting at the table for a couple hours talking about everything under the sun, I asked my brother what the heck happened to his ears?! Boy have times changed!!!!

I get to sleep in, in the morning, no running because the kids are at camp!!! I am teaching a sculpt class tomorrow evening and I have Thursday Night Group so it will still be a super busy day!!!

I am hoping to get up early and do some Yoga in the AM :). I hope I can do it!

Nite Nite

The cobbler looks great!

Your bro's gage isnt too bad, I have seen much worse, hopefully he doesnt go any bigger because they look freaky when you take them out!

brandi said...

awesome looking tacos!

I used to gauge my ears and had them down to 0 at one point. As long as he doesn't stretch them too quickly, they'll go back to normal - mine did!

Niki said...

Lindsay said...
