I didn’t touch my computer all weekend. I spent the weekend in Chicago doing LOTS. All fun stuff.
After an awards ceremony for the leadership team on Friday morning, I left for Chicago at 10am and went straight to the hockey shoppe. I got a new hockey stick and got my helmet fixed. I also figured out what new hockey skates I wanted and later ordered them online as they didn’t have my size in stock. Friday night was spent in the city with my best friend and her friends from college. We had a swanky small plates meal at The Bristol in Wicker Park/Bucktown – so yum.
Saturday morning I was up early (EST clock in CST city!) and went for a run and got my latte. My mom and I got ready for my bestie’s wedding shower and headed out to the burbs to help set-up. Everything was beeeeautiful, including the bride-to-be. The day was perfect and while we were indoors celebrating, snow fell quickly, covering everything in a beautiful blanket of white. Of course the commute back to my parent’s was then a killer, but we weren’t in a rush and I got to gab more with my mom.
We ordered delivery dinner and watched Bad Moms Christmas with my brother and his girlfriend. We were due for some family time without my kids around – it’s nice to just have adult time. J But, I did miss them!
We had a champagne brunch at the house this morning and I was on the road by 2pm to head back to my crazies. Before I got on the road, I was sure to plan the menu for this week and place our grocery delivery order. Just like I can’t recall life before Amazon, I don’t want to live life without grocery delivery! It makes healthy eating all the more doable with the bustle of life at times.
And speaking of doable and making healthy eating…easy? This recipe. So easy. Basic. Clean. It’s carb-controlled, gluten-free, dairy-free, Paleo, Whole30…you name it (other than vegetarian
