Last week I shared a little teaser about a collaboration I was super excited about but could not quite share. Well, today you can hop on over to The Blended Blog and read all about it! These ladies are some of the most supportive I’ve found in the blogging community. They are positive, thoughtful and bright but also all very real and I’ve enjoyed interacting with most of them for the past few years. I’m super excited to become part of the team.
Our weekend was lazy and relaxing and I barely even touched a computer or social media. Read along with The Queen’s Chronicles and our lazy river weekend.
I did have to share this one quick picture from earlier in the week. When we were on our way home from Corpus Christi the previous weekend we stopped and dropped Carly Jo off with my mom for a few days. She was happy to have some pool time with her cousins no sooner than we drove out of the parking lot!
We headed to Lost Pines Hyatt Resort on Friday afternoon which is the perfect little getaway as it is a quick hour 1/2 drive from our house. We have been several times in the past when I’ve been able to score a great deal but this time Keith had a work function so we tagged along. Our day literally consisted of floating the lazy river, eating and sleeping. The grounds are so pretty and great for exploring which we typically do but we literally just chilled this visit. Carly and Dillon did a little bike riding while we were at our meeting but other than that we were really lazy.
Little miss is always up bright and early and we made it to the lazy river when there was zero traffic and scored our four chairs in a shady spot. We ordered some new swimsuits for this girl but they haven’t arrived so she was stuck with last years from Justice. I think it is perfectly adorable but Carly Jo thinks she has totally outgrown Justice.
We did a little shopping on Thursday night at Old Navy and I was super excited to grab this cover up! Aren’t the colors fun? I did not need a new one but couldn’t resist the price.
Lost Pines is definitely far enough away from town it is not easy to run to dinner off site. The meals are fairly pricey so we typically take food for sandwiches and such to have in our rooms for at least one meal. The rooms are all equipped with a mini fridge. We decided to have a late breakfast at the buffet so we could hold off eating again until Keith’s work picnic that night and it worked out fine with the few snacks we brought along. The omelet bar and these potatoes were tops!
We are lucky to have Jordan in town and willing to let Dutch Buddy come hang out with her and Pesto. She posted this sweet picture of her with Pesto this weekend and I had to share. I love how happy they both look together! Dutch is totally worn out from his weekend with Sissy.
We have been missing our besties and since we all have another busy week we had to squeeze in just a little time together. I love that Dillon even joined the girls fro a game of spoons.
I don’t think the girls were very impressed with Dillon at all and their squeals brought Dutch to the rescue.
We will only be home for dinner 3 nights this week so we cooked up enough meat to last a few days. We also grilled some campfire potatoes for Keith and I roasted sprouts and sweet potatoes with a little turkey bacon to use this week mixed with spring mix for salads. Eating clean is easy for me because I love veggies and meat and don’t miss the bread or pasta. Lately though I’ve been partaking in my weakness of chips and hot sauce and sneaking in the cheese a little more than I should. If you read about the healthy eating challenge on Friday, it will start tomorrow! If you are interested in joining our Facebook group for a little accountability or just for some ideas or support please just send me an email and we will be happy to add you.
Wishing you all a super week!
