Weekend Recap {Girls night out & Summer concert}

Mommy and Nathan

So I feel like we may have been a little selfish this weekend.  Obviously we got in tons of family time, but Greg and I got to finally fit in some time to do a few things we wanted to do too.   We try to squeeze in as many date nights as we can, but usually don't leave until the boys are in bed to get in ample kiddo time.  Plus let's be honest, they hate when we leave, but we know we need to force ...

Weekly meal plan {6-10-2013}


You guys...I had PIZZA on Saturday after the race.  Like real, cheesy, sausage and pepperoni pizza.  I'm not going to lie, while I have grown accustomed to clean eating and love the foods we eat, that pizza tasted like a little slice of heaven.   I was totally famished after the mud run that I probably could have eaten an entire large pie by myself, but I refrained.  It really is all about ...
