I hope you all had a wonderful weekend celebrating the holiday with family and friends.
Kyle and I visited my mom and my dad in Iowa this weekend. It was great to see everyone since we haven’t been down to Ames since before Christmas.
It is always nice to visit our old stomping grounds although it makes me miss college life even more! Here are some of the photos from the weekend.
Ever since our return from Puerto Rico, Mitchell has somehow convinced himself that he is a lap dog. Maybe he just missed Kyle too much!
Kyle brought me home flowers after work on Thursday. I thought they were “just because” but then I found out that he spent my $30 rewards certificate at DSW!!! Grrr….
On Friday night, we hit up a few of our old college hangouts including Es Tas. I always thought Es Tas was one of the “expensive” bars while in school… $2.50 per drink, crazy expensive for a happy hour ;)
On our way to go shopping on Saturday, we stopped by the new Dunkin’ Donuts in Ames. Kyle enjoyed a Boston cream donut and I had a decaf black coffee – so good! I wish they’d come to Minneapolis!
The Easter bunny came on Sunday and brought way too much candy (Reese’s eggs!!!) and delicious cupcakes (Peanut Butter Cup and Monster Cookie were my favorite flavors) from Scratch Cupcakery!
My sister, Laura, and her husband, Tyler at Easter dinner at my mom’s – They are moving to Colorado later this year. I’m so excited to visit them there!! :)
I apologize for being hit and miss on the blog last week. I have been having a difficult time adjusting back into the real world after vacation. Being in vacation mode is so nice but it isn’t great for my productivity at home or at work!
I have an awesome recipe to share with you tomorrow and then two more Puerto Rico recaps later in the week so I should be back to my regular blogging schedule by next week!
This is the first time in 2 weeks that I’ll be creating a meal and fitness plan. I’m crazy excited to go grocery shopping and have real food to eat this week :)
