Weekend Recap and Meal Plan Monday

 This weekend was a busy one, but it was amazing! The weather was gorgeous, so we spent a whole lot of time outside!

Friday: We spent Friday working on the yard, getting our patio furniture out ect. We had some friends over for a weenie roast in the evening and spent a few hours sitting around the fire- my all time favorite summer activity!!

Saturday: I went to yoga on Saturday morning, followed by a 10K run on my favorite trail. The picture for the header of my blog was taken from that trail.. see why it's my favorite? When I got home I helped Will and his friend Jared with the yard for a while and then spent some time sitting and reading in the sun (which reminds me.....I need to do my goal recap for April still!).

Sunday: Most of Sunday was spent in the yard picking rocks. So fun. Not. Our "yard" is basically a big pile of dirt and rocks, so it is going to take a lot of work before it resembles anything remotely like a real yard. We got it to the point where the grass seed is planted, so we'll see how it turns out!

Oh yes, we had to pick allllll of those rocks.
Sunday night we celebrated Cinco de Mayo by eating Mexican Food and drinking margaritas. I made a burrito bar! We threw salsa, 4 chicken breasts and black beans in the slow cooker on high for 4 hours, the shredded the chicken breast to make the main filling. We also had brown rice, homemade guac, more salsa and cheese for toppings. Best dinner I've had in a long time, and lots of leftovers for delicious lunch salads!

On to the meal plan! This week is officially BBQ week at our house- Check out our weather forecast for the week:
