This weekend was jam-packed with a lot of family time. Mark started a family movie night tradition on Friday nights a few weeks ago. So far we've watched The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe; White Fang; and Annie. Mark and Darby picked The Lego Movie this time and I wasn't too excited. However, it was hilarious - lots of laughs for the adults in this one. Will Ferrell and Chris Pratt are in it, so I should have known. The number one rule for family movie night is no phones, so Darby always gets a kick out of confiscating and hiding them from us. We are trying to eat super healthy around here, so I made a beet and goat cheese salad, grilled rockfish, and roasted asparagus for dinner. It was super easy and yummy.
I got the beets from Trader Joe's and used white balsamic vinegar as the dressing. I walked down the street to the Yellow Umbrella for the rockfish, asparagus, and goat cheese. They have the best fish selection in town and are very helpful. They also have a new sandwich bar for lunch which I've been meaning to try.
On Saturday, Sloan ate pancakes for the first time (made with Kodiak mix) and I had egg white oats with pb and banana (shocker!).
I went to the gym Saturday morning with my friends and we did day 36 (legs and calves) of Kris Gethin's 12 Week Muscle Building Trainer. I have the free app and I love it. We followed up with an ab circuit including one minute each of planks, incline bench sit-ups, and medicine ball throws against a trampoline. We did each exercise four times for a total of 12 minutes. I made them take a selfie for the blog. They were thrilled.
On Saturday night Mark took Darby to a Richmond Spiders basketball game and I stayed home, ordered Thai takeout, and started season two of The Big Bang Theory (my idea of a perfect Saturday night). I was telling my mom how I loved the pianist in the movie Florence Foster Jenkins (which I thought was hilarious but Mark would beg to differ). Any who, she said if I loved him I should watch the The Big Bang Theory because he's in it...and she happened to have the whole DVD set. I finished season one in two days and I'm about halfway through season two.
On Sunday we had a baptism class at our church for Sloan and then I took Darby to a doll tea party. It was so cute! We had to borrower a baby doll because she literally does not own a single one. I asked her if she wanted one for Christmas and she responded, "What would I even do with that?" They had pink lemonade, tea sandwiches, and a "water fountain with pink chocolate" (in Darby's words as she recapped over the phone for my sister).
Mark recruited a babysitter for a date night for us on Sunday night so we went to Osaka for sushi. I got the lollipop roll again! It is everything.
I wore this top which I got at Wardrobe but it is sold out (similar for less here and here), this necklace again, and these jeans. The top was a splurge, but a good white top that I can wear any season is always a good investment in my book. The necklace is simple enough to go with everything yet still adds a nice flair to any outfit. The flats are Steve Maddens but they are so old and are no longer made. These are the closest I could find but are more expensive, unfortunately.
Hope you had a great weekend! I'm going to see The Legwarmers this weekend so I'm scrambling to put together a good 80s outfit. I'll report back with the final product!
