Weekends go too fast.

Real talk? This weekend I got a BIT off track on the healthy eating.
BUT NOT HORRIBLY off track. So yay for small accomplishments...I think?

Friday night was a ladies night, with my sistaaa and now-cousin, Natalie. It was a blast and LONG overdue. We definitely talked like middle school girls and then watched Katy Perry's movie...and then when it was over, we jammed out to her entire last CD, and then we swore we'd see her again next time she's in town. Remember, Erin got me tickets for my 20th birthday and our lives have been forever changed since?!

Saturday was amazing. We got to sleep in, and then spend quite a few hours at the pool. Erin and Jared came over and enjoyed it with us... and I definitely got some sun, mostly thanks to my sweet sweet friend Kaitlyn for sending me this tube of gold.

Do yourself a favor and buy it NOW.
After lounging poolside...Caleb and I cleaned up for our youth group event that night.
The backwards progressive dinner!

We started out at one house...and had dessert first (sadly, I hardly touched mine...trying to be good!)

but seriously...that thing would've put me in a food coma.
Second house, we moved onto the main course. I had a hot dog and some mac n cheese...woops. & lastly, we went to the last house and enjoyed appetizers. Which are my FAV...but I was really good, guys.

I hate wasting food, but I only ate a few french fries!!
 I promise. I even logged everything in on My Fitness Pal! I know, I still didn't eat WELL...but I had moderation! Which I think is so important in any meal plan.

It was pretty late when we got back home, and we straight crashed.

Sunday was fun. It's our month to lead worship/games with the K-5 kids at we obviously had a blast with them. After church though, we brought my brother back home with us and he got to spend some brotherly time with Caleb. It was sweet.

All the while, I edited a TON more pictures from the wedding I shot last month (post on that to come!), and was very productive. Then, we went back to church and had a blast with the youth group for our Sunday night get together. It's so fun seeing these kids grow in their relationships with Christ. I'm so blessed to witness it!

How was YOUR weekend?

  1. looks like the perfect weekend! i love the katy perry movie!!! and that maui babe stuff is awesome!

  2. How fun! I love the idea of a backwards progressive dinner! I'm not sure I would have been as good as you were with dessert!

  3. Jealous of your hot dog - sounds soooo good! We went to a cookout at my parents this weekend and had to get there late because Josh had a baseball game. We missed all the burgers and all they had left was hot dogs, which this preggo can't eat. :-( I've been craving them ever since!

  4. I think you did pretty good considering all the food that was put in front of you! Modernation definitely helps so I think that's progress. The backwards dinner sounds awesome - I think I may suggest to Sarah and Ryan that we need to do it haha. Glad you had a good weekend :) I need to get to the pool - I haven't been once allll summer!

  5. moderation is the key! so looks like you did just fine with all that food temptation ;)

  6. Ugh, Katy is so amazing. I'll have to text her soon and let her know the plans so she doesn't miss out on the next girls night ;)

    And uhhh, why didn't you share that brown stuff with meee?!!

  7. happy happy happy weekend friend! So much fun in this post but I mean you were involved so that helps. Hope you have a great start to your week pretty girl.

  8. I love progressive dinners!! I've never tried a backwards one, but that sounds like fun. I want to see these pictures you've been editing!!

  9. i wish my fitness pal had a specific place to log 'random stuff i found in the cupboard' i sometimes get annoyed when i have to enter the specifics of what was in each meal i ate. first world problem, obviously.

    anyways, glad you had a good weekend! i think i might check into that lotion, my legs and the sun don't seem to jive. ever.

  10. Sounds like a productive/fun weekend! I've never seen the Katy Perry movie (I kinda forgot about it). I need to get on that ASAP.

  11. I need some of this secret browning lotion! Everyone is talking about the My Fitness Pal app. I need to check it out!

  12. I love the idea of the backwards progressive dinner! you guys must help out with a really fun youth group!

  13. Looks like a great weekend! & I remember when I was in the youth group at my church we did a backwards progressive dinner! So much fun!

  14. What a blast of a weekend! :-)

  15. Backwards dinner sounds fun! Good for you eating little bits... that's what I have to do when we go to events of any sort, I can't deprive myself of everything or else I'm miserable!


Thanks for your comments, I read and respond to every single one of them! :) Excited to get to know you!
