A Sweet Weekend

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?




  1. What’s Boba? I’ve never heard of it. Also, I’m dying to know what the homemade icing recipe was–but I don’t think the link is taking me there.

    Walking is awesome! Ever since having a dog, and taking him for daily walks, I’ve noticed a huge difference. It can be quite a workout!! At first I wasn’t paying much attention, but started noticing how hungry I was, or extra tired at the end of the day, and couldn’t figure out why. Well, walking an extra 3+ miles every day (and still doing my normal workouts) was really adding up!

      Thanks for letting me know the link didn’t work. It is all fixed now so you can check it out. It’s a good one I tell ya!! Not healthy but GOOD!!!

        Boba are tapioca balls. They are soaked which gives them their large shape and gummy consistency. I love them!!

  2. I love Kodiak cakes too, they’re really good and full of healthy whole grains. That is adorable that you and your cuties made a cake for your husband. And you take the best post workout picture I’ve ever seen! I can’t do that, I look like a drowned rat and a cherry mixed together (somehow) after exercising.

      The lighting is just good, lol!! I don’t really get red at all but a couple minutes after finishing up my workouts I sweat like a man. It is really pretty gross!!

  3. 9-15 incline?! You are awesome – that is tough!! I love that tie cake. What a cute idea!!

  4. Where did you buy the Kodiak cakes around here?

  5. I have heard so many good things about the Kodiak mix. I must remember to pick up some when I visit the states in September! Is it better than bisquick?

    Your tie cake turned out great! Lance is one lucky guy to have such a beautiful wife & children <3
