Coming home (to the blog)

This post was supposed to be my first one “back to work” in a month. However I could not help sneaking in some of those lifestyle posts during my August break. And what I realized during that time is I need / want to be doing MORE lifestyle posts.

I have gotten so caught up in working ahead, an organized schedule, and flexibility in my week, that I almost abandoned lifestyle posts.

I’m not saying I’m going to be sharing 3 meals a day (how did I ever have time for that?!) but I definitely want to sprinkle in more in-the-moment real life posts for you. I can tell from my backend dash that they are what you want, and that’s what I want to give. 

Making Smoothies Together. New stool is perfect for sitting!

Last Days Of Summer

On Birch’s last day of summer, we took a day trip to Richmond to visit Brittany of Eating Bird Food fame! We got to see her beautiful house and swim in her pool!

Birch and Olivia played and had their lunches together.

Brittany made her Greek Yogurt Chicken Salad plus some extras on the side, including homemade sourdough from her mother-in-law!

I also got a demo of her Ninja CREAMi. What a cool appliance! It can make soft serve ice cream and milkshakes with mixins just like the ice cream shop. The peanut butter protein chocolate ice cream was VERY good! Better than I thought it would be! The texture was fluffy and so smooth.

Maymont Gardens

After we said goodbye to Brittany, Isaac, Olivia and Tucker, Birch and I drove to Maymont Gardens for a short hike to visit the animals. We fed the goats and mooed at the cows. I loved seeing the little fox!

We spent the rest of our summer day like this once we were home:

Plus paying Lego MiniFig Mixup which is where I take all the minifigs apart and Birch builds them back! It’s a great way to spend the time.

Birch’s First Day

Birch started the kindergarten year at his school last week! This is his third year in the primary room, so he will be getting the kindergarten lessons, although he was too young to go to public school KG this year. He’ll go to public school kindergarten next year : ) 

Four years of school!

Easy Transition

This year he has the same teacher, same friends, and same school obviously, so his first day back was all excitement and no tears! Wahoo!

Cast Iron Steaks

Our second Blue Apron recipe of the week was seared steaks which we cooked in our new Lodge cast iron skillet. It went great! And cleaning all the grease splatter off the induction cooktop was SO EASY!

Sports

I went to a Labor Day workout in the ACAC parking lot. I test drove this new Nike sports bra and it’s AWESOME. Perfect for high intensity and super supportive. It also closes like a bra in the back so it’s really easy to get on and off! I’m doing some reviews of Nike gear for #Nike365 this fall and will share more of what I got in an upcoming post!
