Today was SUCH A FUN DAY! 8-)
Before heading over to Sarah & Jeff’s for a bbq, I did a killer workout! I ended up doing a high intensity interval training workout that I saw a couple days ago over on Jessica’s blog…WOW!
Warm Up – 5 minutes
Sprint @ 9.0mph – 20 seconds
Jog @ 5.5-5.0mph – 40 seconds
Repeat for 15 minutes
Run for 5 minutes @ 6.5mph
Cool Down – 5 minutes
At first I thought, ahhh 20 seconds, no biggie! But WOAH – this was intense…in a good way ;)
Then it was ALMOST bbq time, but I had to finish up the rest of my goodies! :-D Thanks again, to Jessica’s blog, I whipped up a batch of some Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles.
I put them in the cooler on the way over to the bbq to keep them from melting…along with a batch of my Chocolate Butterscotch Cheesecake Cookies!! Both of them were a big hit! ;)
I of course had to sample one before I brought them out…they passed the test. ;)
Today was the perfect day for a bbq! We all had a great time hanging out by the pool, chatting, eating yummy foods, & enjoying some tasty drinks. Here’s a look at the day. :)
Homemade Guacamole (the secret ingredient to making this stuff so addicting…grapes!)
Drunken Melons (Pineapple + Malibu rum…oh yes, ’nuff said) ;)
Jeff firin’ up the grill…we had LOTS of goodies today!
Macaroni Salad & my coooookies
I chose a veggie burger with cheese from the grill, topped with a little ketchup & mustard. I also had some of Christina’s delicious mac salad & some melons (those were not the “drunken melon” but I definitely had my fair share of those throughout the day!)
Then Andrea broke out her super-cute Memorial Day cake! And what kind of cake was it you ask? SODA CAKE! She used a chocolate cake mix with just regular diet pepsi…it was as moist and delicious as ever. :-P
Some margaritas were making their way around the pool today! This one was made with fresh blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries. It tasted fab. :-D
Lots of fun & shenanigans went down today!!
That’s my man…I’m so proud ;)
It was definitely the perfect way to end an awesome weekend! I hope everyone enjoyed theirs as much as I did!! :-D
What was the highlight of your Memorial Day weekend???
I had too many to choose…my entire weekend was fabulous! :mrgreen:
