I hope all the dads in your life had a wonderful Father’s Day!!!
We tried to make it special for Lance and I think we succeeded. He is a pretty easy to please guy though, so it is never to difficult to impress him.
After opening some homemade cards from the kids(the BEST, by the way)along with a pocket hose(my son picked that one out ;-)), and a golfing gift certificate, I got busy making him some breakfast.
Thanks to a craving that Courtney has been having, all I had on my mind for his Father’s Day breakfast menu was pancakes. Kodiak Cakes to be exact!! I have heard so many great things about this particular brand of pancake mix from multiple bloggers so I finally gave in and purchased some.
All I can say is holy YUM!!! And no worries, Lance liked them as much as I did!! As you can see I also whipped up some turkey bacon and eggs to go along with them. Gotta get that protein in!!
Later in the afternoon, with a little help from me, Camryn and Liam got busy making Lance a tie shaped cookie cake.
Thanks to this recipe on Pinterest, it was topped with the most incredible homemade icing ever. Never again will I make a cookie pizza and not use this icing!!
We also ended up spending the evening at our friends house and enjoyed a delicious dinner, courtesy of them. I didn’t get around to taking any pictures but it was quite the fabulous meal. As always. They are the best!!
As much fun as I had indulging in our “sweet” weekend, my body was pretty much screaming at me for a sweaty cleanse. I had limited time in my workout room this morning so I hit the treadmill for a solid 30 minute incline walk and it was no joke. If anyone ever said walking wasn’t a good workout, than they were just a big liar. For real! I alternated the incline between 9 and 15 and was huffing and puffing the entire time.
Gotta love a good sweaty selfie, right?!
Since we were heading to the old neighborhood this morning, I promised my kids I would stop and get them their favorite treat. Boba!!
Ah, how I miss that delicious Boba. However, it is probably a good thing, for my wallet and my waist line that there isn’t one near by now. I didn’t get myself one but I did sneak a sip of two from Camryns cup.
Just when I thought I was getting sad over my decision to not get my own Boba, I spotted a Seattle’s Best Coffee drive-thru. WHAT? They don’t have those in my current city so I didn’t even know they existed!!
The menu was tough to choose from but I decided on a birthday cake latte.
You can’t regret your decision when it is topped with sprinkles. And don’t ask me how many calories were in this small size because I sure the heck am not looking it up. I would rather be oblivious since it is a once in a hardly ever treat!!
What was the best thing you ate this past weekend?
What is your cardio exercise of choice lately?
Have you ever tried a Boba? Do you like them or not?
