Well, it was a nice, relaxing weekend. Didn't do much of anything. Heath came home last week, so we have Daddy-O back...for a little while at least. He and Jesse played some golf, went to see Meatballs 2, and picked up a Halloween costume for him (Batman).
Me? I got my tattoo fixed, did 63 loads of laundry (no matter how times I emptied the hamper in the bedroom, it would magically refill again within a couple hours), edited a million photos and got to level 399 on Candy Crush. I'd say it was a successful weekend :)
This salad is super easy to throw together. I made for myself for dinner when Heath was at sea. Jesse doesn't like taco anything, so I made him something else. You can do a lot of different things with this (add all kinds of things...jalapenos, beans, chicken, different dressing), or just leave it simple as I did. Either way, it's not a bad dinner.
Ok well, I need to scarf down a quick breakfast then hop in the shower. Today a new class starts at the gym at 9:30 (Raise the Bar), and I can't wait. I took it once back in March (it was the first class I ever took), but it was canceled the following week, so I'm really glad they've decided to bring it back.
Have a great day guys, and I'll see ya on Wednesday!
