Memorial Day Weekend Highlights

by Courtney on May 27, 2013

Happy Memorial Day, everyone!

I hope everyone’s weekend has been going great and you’ve been having lots of fun. Although things have been a lot quieter than usual for Memorial Day weekend for us, (and the weather has been anything but enjoyable), we’ve still been managing to have a nice couple of days.

Some weekend highlights…

Saturday morning banana bread pancakes


I will most definitely have a recipe for you soon.

Two solid workouts, thanks to FitnessGlo, which is an awesome, new-to-me site filled with workout videos.


More on that site to come later this week!

Saturday evening was spent with some of our great friends, and also included another appearance of Andrea’s famous ice cream cookie cake.


Remember when she surprised me with one for my birthday? This one was black raspberry ice cream with Oreos and I swear I could eat these everyday for the rest of my life. Oh. Em. Gee.

Yesterday was a quiet day, and I didn’t even wind up leaving the house at all…but I DID make a salad for dinner of rather epic proportions.


I swear, I threw in every single vegetable and/or thing I could find. I had made baked ziti for the hubby and even took a few spare noodles and tossed ‘em on there too. All topped with a little ranch dressing…aka, yesterday’s craving du jour.

Today we’ve got some work to do around the house (Jay is working on the beginnings of starting our new back patio!) but no crazy plans. Just enjoying the day. Smile

And I can’t wait for the banana bread pancakes recipe! I haven’t been making pancakes enough these days.
Sounds like a nice weekend for you!
Happy Memorial Day!

That ice cream cookie cake looks absolutely mouth-watering. I’m totally craving it right now…too bad we don’t have ice cream OR cookies in the house right now!

Your salad looks fabulous, too! I love jam-packed salads. So many flavors in every bite!

It must be National Work-On-Your-Deck Day along with Memorial Day because that’s what we’re doing at our house, too. I think it’s just the GORGEOUS weather. Have a great day!
