Hi my blog friends! How are you? Happy Monday! How were your days? Mine was good, I was a bit all over the place but it wasn’t bad at all. I was taken out for coffee by my lovely co-workers (as is birthday tradition at work) and it was the great cap to an amazing birthday weekend.
I’m pretty sure that my heart played a Grinch and grew three times its size this weekend. My amazing friends, heartfelt cards and notes all made me realize just how lucky I am to have so many wonderful people in my life. I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend or better people to be around. Thanks so much. :)
The last I left, Sam and I were off to see Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs in 3D. It was amazing. I love 3D now, its come a long way since I was a kid. Sam and I really enjoyed it and it was the perfect day for it – rainy and grey.
When we got home, we found Brian prepping some experimental treats for our Sunday night dinner. He mixed crunchy pb, plain greek yogurt, 2 bananas, raisins, oats, homemade hot chocolate mix and chocolate chips and placed the mixture on a cookie sheet and baked it at 450 for about 20 minutes. They came out delicious – like homemade Clif bars.
We started cooking around 6:30 – Brian’s awesome burritos with sweet potato, tofu, bell pepper, black beans, onion, adobo pepper, with homemade guac, cheese and sour cream as toppings.
While Brian was busy manning the stove, everyone else was enjoying some tortilla chips with salsa and a different batch of spicy homemade guac made by Jason.
My burrito was amazing – the heavenly mixture topped with salsa, some cheese and guac in a sundried tomato tortilla.
Jake and Emily brought the most amazing dessert – little chocolate cakes and little cheesecakes along with Breyer’s cookie dough ice cream.
I cut everything in half so that we could share bites. :)
Me and my birthday dessert
There were several times during this weekend that I was overcome with gratitude at my amazing family and friends. I definitely had some teary eyed moments. I know that through bad days, tough exams, bad runs, I am still so lucky to have such an amazing support system. Thanks so much guys!
OK - I think its time to swallow my heart – enough sappy stuff huh? :) Have a great night my friends.
