Weekly Meal Planning 5/12 - 5/18

Happy Monday! 

I had a great Mother's Day weekend with my family.  It was full and busy with lots of fun activities. Saturday we met up with friends at our local zoo. Kellen loved the zoo and thought the monkeys and otters were a blast to watch. The weather was great and the animals were all playing.  After to zoo we made a stop at the park, but did not stay too long because our little guy was getting tired. 

On Sunday, we started off the day with a gift from Ron and Kellen. They bought we a new jewelry box (which I desperately needed! ) and we had brunch at one of our favorite restaurants. I had a dish that was a play on Eggs Benedict, but it used grouper cakes and fried eggs....delicious.  In the afternoon, we played outside and napped. Naps were followed by a trip to visit my mom for dinner. We feasted on Indian take-out- a favorite for all of us! 

This week we starting to get ready for our trip to France at the end of the month. I am also having a sushi date with a few girlfriends. This weekend we are heading to Lake Geneva for a pig roast with some of my co-workers. A few months ago we participated in a bowling fundraiser and raised over a certain dollar amount to qualify for the roast. The winner was picked randomly and it was us! Ron and I are both excited to a little one-on-one time before our family vacation.
