in Featured, Weekend Highlights

This weekend was fun! We couldn’t have asked for better weather too.


The whole week I felt exhausted so Friday was welcomed with open arms. I grocery shopped, like normal, and kept getting texts from Ryan like this:



Our bed was MADE before we left for work on Friday. Murphy not only moved back his cover (the ugly, teal/green blanket on top) and our duvet cover AND the sheet! #SoSpoiled

buffalo chicken pizza

Pizza Friday was back! Buffalo Chicken to be exact. Yum.


I accomplished a lot Saturday morning. Zumba, library, Farmer’s Market, and Target.

Since the day was so gorgeous, we decided to go to the State Fair to soak up the sun.

state fair funnel cake

No trip to the State Fair isn’t complete without a funnel cake. Shockingly, this was Ryan’s first funnel cake. Say what?!

We headed home, first making a stop at Kopp’s to get the most gigantic burgers ever (and frozen custard…) and came home to promptly pass out. Yeah, I fell asleep at 9:30 pm on a Saturday. Not ashamed!


Sunday was most definitely lazy Sunday. But I woke up at 7am…so that counts for something, right?

meal prep

Meal prep for the week happened. Feels good to be ready for the week!

miso marinated steak

Super delish miso-marinated steak happened for dinner.
