Long weekends go way too fast. Add in all the holiday stuff and family visits and it’s over just like that. We had a lot of fun this weekend though, Easter was definitely good to us. Saturday morning we went to the gym. The workout was a partner workout and it was warm enough to get some running in.
WOD- 18 min AMRAP
20 sit ups (together)
*Basically one partner worked on the push press or lunges while the other did a parking lot sprint, then switch, then we did 20 sit ups together.
It felt great to get out and do some running. I love these types of workouts where one runs while the other does another movement. The run is a nice break from the lifting and vice versa.
After the gym we went to an Easter Egg hunt at a friends house for the afternoon. Then we got our groceries in and went home to relax. It felt like a long day and we both needed to chill out for awhile. Saturday evening was a quiet one, we just hung out after a nice steak dinner with sweet potato fries.
Sunday I woke up to this face.
She was very patient and let me sleep until 8am. We got up and she did her egg hunt and then I made pancakes for C and J that I attempted to shape like bunnies. They turned out… ok I guess. Not the best, but for someone who is not really very crafty I think it was a good attempt. I made myself an egg over sweet potato fries and some turkey bacon.
C went to her Grandma’s for the day and the night and we went to a lunch at J’s parent’s house. It was a nice family visit and the meal was so good, there was ham, lamb, hashbrown casserole, corn, and all the fixings. I ate WAY too much and felt so full after. I helped with chores and milking and got to go visit this little cutie.
When we got home I got our dinner together. I had made the base of a Shepherd’s pie on Saturday evening so we topped it with cheese and Tator Tots and got this deliciousness.
It was soooooo yummy. I definitely recommend doing this. C wasn’t home to enjoy it but we have lots left and she can try it tonight. I think she is really going to like it. I know I can’t wait to have another serving tonight. I was going to bring some for lunch but was healthy and packed a steak salad.
I hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend and that Monday is good to you.
