Relaxed into the weekend...

Monday *always* comes but so do the weekends, and thank God for that!





WELCOME BACK spring weather! Seems you're here to stay, no more surprise snow falls mmmm,kay?!
With you here us friends and little ones can have our backyardigans...good food, good drinks, and good times!

Filling the bird feeders and watching this little guy try to entice every bird of the neighborhood to our yard was one of the sweetest moments in my weekend. Hearing him repeatedly beg for the "biiiiirds" literally melted my heart. And when the birds finally showed up to their little feast it broke his heart that they didn't stick around to play....

As much as I wanted to just stay outdoors and play there were emails to tend to and bills to get paid. An easy outfit, sweet smoothie and quiet spot of the library made these task all the more appealing.

Green smoothies are all so popular and I'm finally giving them a try! Honestly, I couldn't taste the spinach, not at all. I made enough for everyone to have a glass and both boys asked for seconds. Believe that! It was super easy to make and convinced me that I could def sign up for the Wild and Green World Party!

Ok, I don't sweat everyday but I am sticking with my Be More Active challenge for this month :)
We got in some runs this weekend and a lot of "mental prep" for next weekends race. You know you're not a runner when you give yourself serious pep talks for upcoming races. We have our annual 10K coming up and I'm more of a 5K girl. I love running but rarely do more than 3 or 4 miles at a time so yes, I did a lot of pep talking this weekend and will be fighting the urge to get in one more practice run this week.

How was your weekend??
Has the warm weather finally hit your parts?

Look out for Mondays recipe and more "green" fun :)

Green smoothies are a huge hit in my office! We all try to eat healthy here. :)

Your pictures are so nice! Clearly, you have an awesome camera!

I'm a big fan of the green smoothie too! They taste delish to me.. except I like to put a lot of berries in mine and then they take on a bit brown hue with the other stuff in them. Not so appetizing ;)

Adrienne Clark said...

How about you come to Baton Rouge, kick my booty into working out as much as I used to! And force me to eat healthier :-)! Please and thank you!
Love your pics as always!

What a little cutie! Looks like you guys had a great weekend :) Happy Monday!

I'm more of a 5k girl too, but doing my first 10k with a friend last year was a fun accomplishment! I wish I would have trained for it a little bit, but I survived. My goal was to run the whole time, and I did!

I'm intrigued by all this mention of green smoothies...I must try it!

The green of the smoothie makes me nervous...in fact I think it's the texture. I'm going to have to pep talk myself to try some. Hehe I seriously love libraries and the quiet time. Is it weird that's one thing I miss about college?! Lol and I'm excited to hear about your big race. You go girl.

Sisters Marie said...
