Ugh, why is it so freaking impossible to take a vacation in the U.S.? Why can’t we be like Italy where everyone just takes the whole month of August off? Wouldn’t that be nice? It often seems like prepping for a vacation is more work than the actual joy you get from having time off. I say this because we’re getting ready to leave for vacation and the past week has been stress-o-mania. I guess that’s one of the joys of working for yourself! I’m also telling you this as an apology for the lack of posts that have been/will be over the next week or two. My paid work always takes priority so unfortunately the blog has had to take sort of a back seat the past week. We’re going to be adventuring our way through Washington, Oregon & California so I’ll have lots of fun stuff to share with you when we get back! If I have time while I’m there, I’ll try to check in and say hi 🙂
For lunch I had some leftovers from dinner the night before. I made meatloaf for the first time in my life. Tom really loves it so I decided to make some for him using a starter sauce I found at Williams Sonoma, I’m going to try to post a review soon if I have time. It was REALLY good! I had never even tried meatloaf until a few years ago but if its as moist and flavorful as this, I’ll take it! I topped it with some BBQ sauce and ate alongside some steamed broccoli and a pesto summer squash sauté.
For an afternoon snack I had a scoop of peanut butter and a popsicle because I was melting and I needed to eat something cold. It totally hit the spot!
I had to grab a quick dinner before a meeting so i picked up a chicken kabob salad at a local pizza place. I wasn’t able to finish it because it was so huge but it was delicious!
Happy Wednesday! I’m hoping I can stop in to say hi soon, but please forgive me if I can’t!
WHAT MAKES ME HAPPY:
We finally got a nice beach day in on Saturday. The tide was pretty high so people were squeezing in cozy next to each other but it was literally the perfect day. 75 degrees and sunny with a nice ocean breeze. Can’t wait for more of these this summer!
