Any evening spent with family that starts with this,
and ends with this,
is a perfect evening to me! As soon as Jay and I arrived at my parents’ house last night, we pulled up a couple rockers on the front porch, grabbed a couple frosty mugs, and spent some time relaxing and chatting.
I cozied up in my rocker with a Sam Adams Summer Ale, which totally hit the spot. Can you guys spot my little dribble down the front of my shirt?
I swear, it was just condensation from the mug this time, but I’m not denying the fact that I am quite often guilty of dribbling.
After about an hour of hanging out on the porch, dinner was served; and thank goodness it was, because I was a starvin’ Marvin!
I loaded my plate up with some garlic bread,
lots ‘o salad (with fresh tomatoes, YUM),
and the star of the evening: Mom’s homemade lasagna.
Everything, from start to finish, was so so so so good.
Dinner was followed up with a couple raspberry brownie bites, which were enjoyed by all except for my brother because he’s crazy and, for some reason, doesn’t always want sweets at every opportunity they’re presented to him…sometimes I wonder if we’re really related.
But then I realize, oh yes, we definitely are.
Thursday mornings call for BodyPump, so I headed out for class this morning, luckily with no blocked roads in my way. Unfortunately, our instructor did the same release as last week which was sort of lame, but she did tell us that she’s planning on starting a new release next week, so I’m pretty pumped about that (<—pun intended).
I skipped my usual cardio in favor of coming home for some yoga, in the form of my 10lb. Slimdown Yoga video. It felt good to stretch it out.
This morning was definitely a protein pancakes kinda morning.

And boy were they delicious!
Now, I’ve got some things to do. I know I left you guys hanging last night…I’m sorry! But I promise, I’ll be filling you in soon.
Questions for the Morning:
WOULD YOU RATHER…
- Eat a full Italian dinner -OR- a full Mexican dinner?
- Drink a beer on a front porch -OR- a glass of wine at a fancy wine bar?
