Friday Favorites 07.27.2018
Happy Friday friends!
I’m linking up with Narci, Erika, and Andrea for Friday Favorites and will recap my past weekend and events throughout the week. Sadly I don’t have a lot of pictures so I’ll try not to bog you down with so much text!
Last Friday was my last day of summer before going back to work. One last morning dog park session was in order before meeting two co-workers for lunch. Shortly afterwards, I wandered into the most swanky second hand women’s clothing shop before it was time to go see Mamma Mia 2 with my mother-in-law!!!! All in all, it was really good. I still like the first one better because of Meryl Streep. However, the singing and acting in the sequel was excellent as well!
Saturday morning, I drove to Dallas to assist my friend in a newborn photography session. My friend is a baby whisperer. It’s amazing. For the past few years, I have been helping her with these sessions. My job is to help with lighting such as holding a reflector, arranging sets, and helping pose the baby. Her photography is amazing and she has been able to gift her clients with some very special portraits of their new arrival. Saturday evening, I attended part of a birthday party for a dear friend of mine and Shay. We had a great time seeing his family and getting to celebrate him.
Sunday, I woke up super sore and not feeling so hot. As much as I wanted to attend service, I couldn’t make it to the early one and tuned in online. After some extra rest, I headed to the Painted Tree for a birthday gift for Shay’s aunt and to the grocery store to pick up a dessert for small group. For lunch, we went to Blue Mesa Grill for a birthday buffet meal for Shay’s aunt. Holy stretch pants- this was NO ordinary Mexican food buffet. Here’s all that I saw (with some pictures)
Salad table with three types of green salads
Fruit trays with fresh watermelon juice
Salsa/guacamole table with two huge bins of tortilla chips and SWEET POTATO CHIPS!!!!
Carving board table with brisket, ham, and salmon
Made to order breakfast tacos and omelets with some super fancy looking fillings
Fried chicken and waffle stand
Eggs, potatoes, and sausage
Rice and black beans, blue corn enchiladas oozing with cheese, migas
Adobo pies (corn pies with either beans or chicken stuffed in them)
Macaroni and cheese
Dessert table with CHOCOLATE COVERED STRAWBERRIES, flan, pecan pie squares, churros, and something resembling donut holes
Raspberry cobbler with vanilla ice cream
I had no problem getting a gluten free/vegan meal!!! My plate looks super messy but here’s what I got! Fruit, salad, grilled vegetables, sweet potato chips with salsa and guacamole.
After coming home and briefly resting, I attended small group.
Monday, I started work and it’s been a whirlwind since that day. Summer hours are in effect for the next two weeks. Good news is that I get two Fridays off but stretching the hours during the day has been super hard! Especially since I have been on break! My morning routine is back in place of working out at least 40-50 minutes before getting ready and going to work. Every morning, I have also had a smoothie thanks to my new smoothie prep method!
Also, it’s been super hot:
In the evenings, we have worked a little here and there on the house. Shay installed a new patio door and big window in our living room. So much light is shining into our house!
That’s really all I have for this week! I hope you all are staying cool!
