Spring Weekend Snapshsots

I wish all weekends were like this. No obligations, nothing to keep me from doing whatever I want! Creative juices aren’t flowing for a nice intro so here are some pics from the weekend. I’d say it was very marvelous!

    Aww look how cute that kitty is! It always surprises me to see cats that are social with strangers since mine is literally a scardy-cat. She’s SO affectionate, cute, and annoying with our family, but alway hides under the bed when we have guests over.

    AHHH I LOVE ALL THE CLOTHES YOU GOT. Everything is so cute and those shorts ar perfect for the upcoming weather :)

      I know! Poop (lol) is totally fine with any strangers but Kiki (not yours;) hides from everyone even though she’s so sweet for me!

      And thanks! I am SO excited for shorts weather! :)

      thanks girly! and just to let you know: the waffle wasn’t crispy! maybe because I added banana to the batter? lol!

      in case you try it: the waffle wasn’t crispy! maybe because I added banana to the batter? but I like my waffles crispy so it was kind of upsetting lol!

    Props to you for taking a selfie on a bike ride – I would fall! I really miss biking – the trails are just no good for mountain biking right now :( And I can’t meet up with you in Wisconsin this time around … I’m only in town for the weekend :/
    Good luck at your track meet!

      I know right?! Yesterday we got about 3 more inches! I think it’s safe to say my OUTDOOR meet on Thursday is cancelled!

      Thank you! I recently bought a Canon Rebel T3i and a 50 mm 1.8 macro lens. Best purchases I’ve ever made! :)

      NOOO, I don’t run 7:35 for an easy run! That was my pace for the last .07 haha :) I don’t know how to get it to show average pace for the whole run!

      Now I want to make my own healthy versions! Just because they’re made with chickpea flour and sweet potatoes doesn’t mean they’re healthy.. ;)
