Vday + Sledding + Weekly Food and Fitness Plan #25

Good morning!  How is your weekend going so far?

Mine has been fabulous.

Valentine’s Day was great - a little note on  my car.

After I went grocery shopping and bought the stuff for a fancy steak dinner AND put the baked and sweet potatoes in the oven, Dan decided he wanted Mexican.

So to Mexican we went.  I ordered the vegetarian fajitas WITH chicken - it was great and will probably be my go-to Mexican order from now on.

Ina loved the salsa.

We got home, put Ina to bed, opened a bottle of vino, and watched The Silver Linings Playbook.  (Loved it!)

Saturday morning I woke up ready to work, realized I didn’t have to work, and as I was cooking breakfast wondering what I was going to do, my dad called to see if we wanted to go sledding.

Um, yes!

We had such a great time.

Ina liked the sled,

but liked more riding in the UTV and watching us sled.

She liked even more sitting in the heated car and watching us have a snowball fight.

I was the official snowball factory for my nephew Kauffman and I think it is safe to say I did him proud.

After we came home and warmed back up Ina took a nap and then we went to our friend Nigel’s birthday party.  

So much fun in two little days!
