happy friday! this week was pretty excellent. we’re just over here plugging along waiting for the sun to make up it’s mind. meanwhile, we’ve been making the most we can of the stupid weather with library trips, cooking, and hanging with friends. sunday was a really good day spent with lots of people we love, kids running around being awesome, massive pots of spaghetti sauce and yummy adult beverages (may i highly suggest pearl cucumber vodka with a splash of gingerale). i kind of wanted to bottle that day. alex, if you read this – we love you so hard dude.
i made a delicious cold thai noodle salad that i’ll blog the recipe for next week. i have become obsessed with trader joes tabbouli. as in, i think about it when i’m not eating it. i can’t believe how easy it’s been for us to cut out the majority of the animal products from our diet. i think a lot of it has to do with the fact that we don’t really restrict ourselves on the weekends so it doesn’t feel like we are depriving ourselves of anything. it’s actually been fun coming up with different lunches and dinners without meat or dairy. but honestly i can’t see myself never craving a good cheese or for the love of andy cooper, bacon. i guess we’ll just see. between that and running (we’re up to a solid 2 miles each day! trying for 3.2 soon WHO AM I) i have been sleeping really well and feeling pretty dang good.
this weekend is going to consist of the farmers market, a family date and lots of lounging. after this weekend our weekends are full of craziness until what seems like september. i hope you guys have a good one!
