Fast Friday Update

What a week! It was the last week of school for us and somehow it seemed crazier than normal. How about a Fast Friday post to take us into the weekend?

Last Friday, while I was upstairs changing a diaper, M decided that she was going to make us all lunch. Normally she's really awesome at working the microwave but this time she accidentally pressed an extra 1, putting the nuggets in for 11 minutes instead of 1. We ended up with a melted plate, a burned microwave, burned lunch and a kitchen full of smoke. If anyone knows how to make a microwave smell normal again after that let me know, otherwise we will have to get a new microwave. Everything smells like smoke again every time we run it.

We went on a date night last weekend, to the temple and to Firehouse subs for dinner. If you go to Firehouse Subs, you need to get their club on a sub!

Trevon has been needing some new button up shirts so we went to the mall. The kids were not exactly interested in shopping for shirts. They found a place to relax while we did the looking (in the middle of the H&M floor.

After our errands, I went on a run.

On Sunday I got to use my mothers day gift. I've wanted one of these pots since we've been married and Trevon (and his mom) found me one!

We had a game night and played Battleship.

Monday we had a little warm before the storm so we spent a lot of time outside.

I went on an evening run with my sister in law and it was cold enough to wear long sleeves and pants.

It rained the rest of the week and was in the 50's, it's supposed to be closer to 80 by now.

Tuesday was a strength training day for me. You can find my workout HERE.

I watched my brother's kids for the day on Tuesday. We spent most of the time inside because the rain started and wouldn't stop. The best part was getting to snuggle this little sweety.

Wednesday the rain kept coming.

So we had Taco soup for dinner. Super easy recipe! 1/2 ground beef, 1 can pinto beans, 1 can black beans, 1 can diced tomatoes, 4 oz tomato sauce, 1/4 cup frozen corn, 1 TBS taco seasoning, and a TBS rance mix.

Thursday morning was cold again so I did my run on the treadmill. It was a sprint ladder workout. 1-minute sprints from 7-10 on the treadmill with 1-minute jogging recovery between each sprint. All done twice. 3.2 miles total.

Then V and I played kitchen while M played with friends and J was at school.

After lunch, we decided to go to the library. When we were there I got a text from my sister-in-law saying J showed up at her house after school....I didn't even know it was an early out day! So worst mom of the week goes to me. The worst part is that this isn't the first time she's had to walk to their house because I wasn't home, though the first time it wasn't my fault, she had just forgotten that we talked about me picking her up. We are so very ready for Summer break.

How did your week go?

Do you have a favorite sandwich?

What did you do for your last date night?


  1. Uh oh for the melted plate and burned nuggets! As far as sandwiches go I love anything with avocado on it! I am on the dating scene as I am recently divorced. My last date was to a great little restaurant called Worthy Kitchen. Nice job on your sprint ladder workout!

    1. I haven't heard of Worthy Kitchen but it sounds good! I hope you get to go on some awesome dates soon! Have a great weekend.

  2. I am mystified as to what kind of pot that is, is it a pressure cooker? Thanks :)
