Life Lately

This week has been kind of all over.  Crazy busy at work and trying to stay on top of everything.  It's just that time of year - back to school and working at a college that has open enrollment means this time of year is extra crazy.

I've been trying to stick to my workouts and I've added a new one to the rotation.  A Pure Barre opened near us in Las Colinas and they were offering free classes the first weekend they opened so I gave it a try.  I loved it.  It's my new favorite. I wish I could go every day.

Little Miss here is infatuated with Elena of Avalor, the new Disney Princess.  She's "fancy".  When I was visiting a couple weekends ago, I let her pick out an Elena Tshirt, and then she saw the jewelry.  Of course, Auntie Nichole said ok, we'll get the jewelry too, ha ha.


This handsome guy prepared dinner Sunday night.  Taco salad, it was delicious.  Please note that I just wanted to capture the moment.  We're actually pretty good at dividing up the cooking responsibilities.  I usually cook Sunday evening, but he had the inspiration for taco salad and wanted to do the cooking that night.  I wasn't going to argue :)

Contrary to popular belief, I was not close to running out of gas.  I still had 75 miles to go!  I refilled shortly after that.  I'm usually better at getting a refill before the light comes on, I promise #ohweusedtoletitgetsolowwhenwewereteenagers

 Saturday we went to see Suicide Squad.  It was not great.  I thought Margot Robbie and Will Smith did a great job, but they were saddled with a terrible script.  Our evening got considerably better when we went to dinner.  Souk, at Trinity Groves, was a new choice for us.  We've walked past it before, but we finally tried it Saturday night and holy cow it was the most delicious meal.  So flavorful.  Very Moroccan and the interior was cozy and interesting - something new to look at wherever you looked. And then we hit up Cake Bar before we left TG.  #sogood #gettheoldfashioned #trustme

After Cake Bar, we made our way home for Game Night.  It was a Yahtzee kind of night with the Olympics on in the background.  We each won a game, so we were still talking to each other afterwards #wearesocompetitive

And have I mentioned the Olympics???  Both Phillip and I LOVE the Olympics.  He kind of tunes out when I make him watch gymnastics, but otherwise we are into it. #teamUSA

Sunday I did a little planning and finished the Save the Dates

And then this happened.  Where am I?  Yeah, it was 77 degrees when I got home from work Monday night.  I opened the balcony door it was so nice.

So nice, that Jack and Kate immediately camped out on the balcony for the rest of the evening.  I had to physically go out there and get Jack when we were locking up for the night.

And then there was this.  Chow Mein.  Not just any Chow Mein, but Fall River style Chow Mein.  I was talking to my grandmother about it on the phone a couple of weeks ago and then when she did her grocery shopping while I was in RI a couple of weeks ago, she got me a couple of boxes.  I was in heaven. #nostalgia #grandmasfavorite #andyesimeanme
 That's a peek into life lately!  Come back Friday for Friday Favorites - see you then...
