In my first grade class, my students all have a journal, and on Friday afternoons we journal about our “peaks of the week”. All the good things that happened in school throughout the week. I thought it would be fun for ME to do the same thing here on the blog! Here are my Peaks of the Week this week.
I am loving grilled dinners. The flavors are so plentiful, and everything tastes so fresh in the summer.
Here is one of our dinners- salmon, baked potato, and corn on the cob- all on the grill.
Another night we had burgers on the grill with carmelized onions. Mine was a mini version of Jim’s.
Time with family
We went on a little trip with Jim’s family last weekend and it was really fun to hang out with everyone, and play with the boys!
On our trip last weekend Jim and I snuck out to get some coffee and breakfast before everyone was awake. I love lattes from coffee shops and bakeries. I wish I could recreate them at home, and have the same delicious taste. I think it also has something to do with the fact that someone else makes the latte, and we are usually having fun on the weekend, that makes lattes taste so good!
I wrote about this a little bit in my What I Ate Wednesday post, but we went to the Cubs game with my family this week. We went to celebrate my brother’s last week here before he heads back to college. The weather wasn’t very cooperative, but it was still really fun!
My back was really bothering me last week, and the week before we were on vacation, so I was happy to get back to some good workouts this week. I have learned I need to slow down and listen to my body more than I had before. I have been doing lots of prenatal yoga, Piyo, and a little T25 for some cardio. I am planning on writing a full post about prenatal yoga soon, because it has been amazing so far!
I bought a coconut Yankee Candle at TJ Maxx earlier this summer, but never lit it until this week. I have been burning it nonstop this week! It smells SO good, and I want to fully enjoy my summer smells before it is time to move on to my beloved pumpkin for the fall!
