We just had one of those lazy weekends enjoying each other and taking some down time. We started the mornings off with some yummy leftover veggie lasagna.
We played at the park and even had a slight parenting fail when we thought Vanessa was big enough to go down the green slide solo. Thankfully she giggled at the way down and wanted to go again. The munchkin showed off her super human toddler strength while Philip was close by to catch her.
We went out to a local Mexican seafood restaurant called Mariscos Puerto Nuevo and grubbed on some delicious fish tacos that were only $2.25 a piece. Love that place. A little gem most people wouldn’t think twice about.
We had early morning bike rides along the coast and stopped at Lover’s Point to stretch our legs. Vanessa decided it was important to put her helmet back on before she played on the rocks. That’s right kid, safety first.
I even managed to paint this family heirloom while the munchkin took a snooze. The full reveal is coming soon!
I finally took the plunge and splurged on these gorgeous soap dispensers from Tar-jay. One for each bathroom and one for the kitchen. Got to love gift cards.
No weekend would be complete without a little grilling action. We enjoyed turkey club sandwiches with nitrate free turkey bacon, spicy sweet potato fries and an arugula salad with a homemade lemon vinaigrette.
Sometimes we need these laid back weekends after a stressful week. Two doctors visits and we’re finally relieved to find out that Vanessa is 100% food allergy free and tested negative for Celiac. Oh yeah, I also found out through my blood tests that my vitamin D was insanely low and that was the cause of the chronic fatigue. Modern medicine is an amazing thing.
How do you spend those lazy weekends after an exhausting week? Are you like us and do little things close to home or are you the Lifetime Movie Sunday kind of girl (don’t worry, I am too)?
