Hello, hello! I kept meaning to pop in over the last few days—I’ve got a recipe I want to share—but I wasn’t able to find a spare moment! (I’ve got it on the “agenda” for Tuesday now instead!)
Here’s a look at what I’ve been up to the past few days…
Friday was the last student day of school; they had finals in the AM. We’re allowed to take a longer lunch break on student half days, so I ate lunch at home and swung by Dunkin’ Donuts on the way back into work to celebrate National Donut Day.
Has anyone tried the new key lime pie or lemonade donuts from DD? They’re both definitely on my to-try list!
Friday night was graduation. Afterwards, I went out for a drink and late dinner with some friends.
I went with the Sour Patch martini after some urging from the waitress. She said it was sweet, not sour, and she was right—it was perfection.
I started my Saturday the same way I have the past few weeks—at spin class. Afterwards, I picked up a “Java Jolt” protein shake and some Dunkin’ Donuts oatmeal for a late breakfast. (Saturday AM is our “normal” DD day, and I couldn’t disappoint Chris by skipping it even though I just had it the day before!)
The past few times that I’ve ordered oatmeal from DD, they haven’t had any actual oatmeal cups, so they serve it in a small coffee cup… whatever works, I guess!
The rest of my day was spent cleaning inside, while Chris was working outside.
We’ve almost been in our house for a year, and we’re Chris is finally getting around to landscaping! Chris is a former landscaper—and still does some work in the field part-time—so this is 100% his project. I have requested a few box planters on the side of our house, though!
He’s hoping that everything will be done by next weekend, so I’ll be sure to share the “big reveal.” (And please, pay no mind to the overgrown foreclosure next to us; the place is turning into a wildlife reserve and even Stewie won’t go near it!)
We both worked on our respective projects for the majority of the day, so when dinner time rolled around pizza and beer was the natural choice.
The past few Sundays, I’ve been going for a run. Today, however, I was feeling a rest day, so I started my morning with my beloved Honey Nut Cheerios Medley Crunch, a cup of coffee, and some blog reading.
Later on in the afternoon, Chris and I had a few errands to run and grabbed a quick lunch at Applebee’s (hadn’t been there in forever!). Then, Chris got to work on the yard again, and I did our grocery shopping for the week.
Our weekend was capped off with a filling dinner (bruschetta meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and green beans) and a yummy dessert (homemade Frostys).
I have to go to school for a half day tomorrow, but then I’m done. However, this summer will be different from most. I hope to be able to share why it’s different in early-July, so stay tuned!
Have you tried the new key lime pie or lemonade donuts from Dunkin’? I need to know which one’s best so I know what to try first!
What did you do this weekend? Any home improvements/DIY projects? Our 1-year warranty with our builder is just about up. This means that they’ll come and fix any nail pops/random issues/etc. After that, I’m ready to tackle a bunch of things we’ve been talking about doing but haven’t actually made any progress yet!
