100% Junk Food

Hello friends, had your weekend so far?. I have enjoyed every minute of mine!Friday night I had a Father and Son conference to register for at work. Here is what registration looks like for me at camp.

I work hard all week to make all the guests their registration packets filled with lots of goodies; name tags, wrist bands, programs, maps….

I enjoyed a very sweet cup of Hot Coco while I waited for folks to check in.

I love Friday check in days, because I get to meet all the wonderful guests I have been working with on the phone for months! I am there until about 9pm so one of the guests was so kind and brought me a plate of dinner. It was a typical MANS meal, steak, mashed potatoes, and dressing with a side of salad ;).

I also enjoyed some dessert, a scoop of vanilla ice-cream and the chewiest brownie I have ever bitten in to!

The evening was long (but went well) I couldn’t wait to get home and crawl into bed, just to wake up at 5am for a run with Skinny Bride and then a x-country invitational with my team. SB and I ran a nice 4 mile loop and chatted the whole time about wedding plans, only 4 more weeks until the big day! The x-country meet went great, all my kids beat their times from our last meet and finished well. It was a hot morning and there were some pretty intense hills, but I can tell that our hill training has really helped them. GO TEAM!

After the game I went with my my Boss Sandra and our friend Jen to the Apple Store to replace Sandra's iPhone. She got a whole new phone for $199 instead having to buy a brand new one for $499!!! Apple has some pretty wonderful customer service! At this point I was starving so we grabbed some Chipotle, I inhaled my veggie bowl so fast that I forgot to take a pic…ooops!

The rest of Saturday afternoon was spent relaxing by the pool and getting my last tan on before summer is officially over. When i got home I got an email from some friends inviting us to a get together at their house for a birthday. Joe and Jessica are two good friends we know from our Thursday night group, so glad we got to hang out! 

Pizza was on the menu, I went with Pineapple and Canadian Bacon(haven’t had this since college).

We brought a bottle of my favorite red wine, Ménage  a Trios. We had this for the first time in Napa.

I enjoyed a glass or two or three.

The best part was, Joe had a Dairy Queen Ice Cream Cake!!!  100% ice-cream.

Menage a trois is my absolute favortie tooo!! So delish...especially when paired with ice cream cake! I agree, far better than regular cake! I love the crispy layer in DQ cakes :)

lizzy said...

wow you have had a crazy busy weekend!!! I have never had a DQ cake either, it does look super yummy! hope your having a blast at the wedding!

Taylor said...

Ahh that cake looks better than anything on this planet! I hate cake too, only ice cream cake for me please! I've never had a blizzard - but that cookie dough one sounds like the one I'd get. I've only had a dairy queen cake once, and I had no idea you could get blizzards as one layer! Now I know for next time ;-)

Lauren said...

What a great weekend. You always make me so tired just thinking about how much you do, but I have to commend you! I don't know where you get your engery and still manage to always rock that beautiful smile! :)

Hope you enjoyed your Sunday.
