My Everyday Life [Week 26]

Here's what I've been up to in the last week. 

Last Sunday, we had my in-laws over for Father's Day. We went for a hike and then I made smoothies for us. They joked that they didn't want any vegetables in their smoothies (they know me well), so I stuck with fruit, but I should have snuck some spinach in for fun.
Speaking of smoothies, I found this mix at Costco and took a photo of it for future reference. Once I run out of protein powder and other mixes, I might try this if they still have it in stock.
I accepted a job offer on Wednesday morning and that called for a celebration! We tried to go to the Gasthaus since it shut its doors last week, but it was packed. Instead, we checked out a new Mexican restaurant near our house and had margaritas to celebrate my good news.
 Pretty flowers at my brother and sister-in-laws's house.
I picked my nephew up from camp and we went back to his house to play board games. We enjoyed bounce off and connect four. I ruled at bounce off, he kicked my butt in connect four. 
Found these pajamas at Target and now I regret not buying them, but I am trying to abstain from purchasing things I don't really need. This is perfect for me (and my dad). 
Bought a box of these at Costco in hopes that Craig would take them for lunches too. They're a winner! He doesn't like beans, but he'll eat this. Hooray!

I stole this photo from the Waukesha County green team Facebook page. Craig and I are in the middle to bottom right. We attended a green drinks talk at Good Harvest. It was on indoor air toxins and we learned a lot!

After this presentation, I ran home to join "ladies night" at a nearby house. Since I'm the new girl in the area, I was a little nervous to meet so many new people (total introvert at heart), but it was fun.
I had been wanting to try Henry's hard orange soda, so I picked up a can this week. It was really good. I was surprised it didn't taste sweeter, but that was a good thing. 
We had a little surprise visitor on our back patio Sunday afternoon. I saw a face peeking in the patio door and saw the neighborhood outdoor kitty there. Of course, once I opened the door and had the cats go up to the screen, he didn't come back over and stayed under our chair. Silly cat!
That was my week! This one is a bit more exciting, although accepting a new job was very big news for week 26.

  1. Love those pajamas, would definitely get those if there was a short sleeve option. Way too hot here for sleeves :) I can so relate to feeling nervous about a ladies night. The mom of multiples group I'm in is incredibly friendly but I still dread going to events. I've eyed up that hard soda a few times but was also worried it would be too sweet. You've now convinced me to try it!
