Happy hump day!! I’m super excited since my summer break has started–I’m off until the first week of July, and then will have four day work weeks until school starts back in August. I can’t wait to have Friday’s off!
I’ve been enjoying the time with my parents while they’re in DC and relaxing. Yesterday I took a two hour nap and it was glorious. I heart summer vacation–it gives me the time I need to reset my batteries before the kids return!
I’ve been having some yummy meals too with my parents in town! Which leads me to this weeks WIAW post!
I was able to enjoy a leisurely breakfast after a trip to the gym. Normally I have to rush home to shower and get ready. I told Brandon to go ahead home without me and I’d walk home when I was done. I did 20 minutes of intervals on the elliptical plus lower body and core work, then about a 15 minute walk home. Since I focused on strength training, I refueled with a protein smoothie!
After breakfast, my momma and I headed to Costco to get some essentials. Actually, Brandon asked if I could pick up some things. He loves when I’m on summer break too because he can leave me a to-do list (barf)! I picked up a bag of dark chocolate mango to try!
Lunch was all about leftovers! I combined mixed greens with a leftover piece of teriyaki salmon, dried cherries, fresh mozzarella and cashews, topped with honey thyme balsamic dressing from TJ’s.
Brandon and I treated my parents to dinner at Montmartre, our favorite local French restaurant in Eastern market. I love it so much–it’s cozy, has a great vibe, and the food is always good. I had lamb loin with a carrot harissa purée, bok choy, and shiitake mushrooms.
Not pictured: the two bottles of wine we had and the cup of gelato I had for dessert. I ate/drank those too fast. Shocker.
Hope you all have a great Wednesday! My momma and I are off to West Virginia to visit family friends overnight!
What’s something you never make for yourself but love ordering when you’re out?
Anyone else on summer break mode?!
