Meet the Sullivans: Weekend Rewind

Weekend Rewind

Well that weekend went fast! Saturday morning we hustled to get ready for the gym while also packing ourselves up to head to my sister-in-laws house in Folsom. It sounded like a great idea at the time, to get our workout in before sitting in the car for a few hours, but it made for a really hectic Saturday morning!

I also made this amazing breakfast while trying to pack! (I think my problem is trying to do allthethings at once.) I saw it one someones Instastories and it looked easy, so we gave it a go. Basically you chop up some bacon (I used turkey bacon) and potatoes, cook them on the stove until they get a little brownish, cover for a few minutes to soften the potatoes up, then toss on a couple handfuls of spinach (or kale!) and then crack an egg over that. Cover it all again for about 10 minutes or so to let the spinach wilt and the egg cook. I topped ours with a little TJ's Everything But the Bagel seasoning. It was fantastic!

Our drive up to Folsom was smooth. Luke slept most of the time and Owen looked out the window for "abandoned" farms. He's seen a few dilapidated buildings recently when we've been on long car trips and he's really into asking about them. We used the Waze app to get the best directions with the least amount of traffic and it totally got us there faster by bypassing the stand still trafficon our usual route to Aunt Teri's house. Granted, it did take us out into the middle of nowhere, but that just provided Owen more sights of "abandoned" stuff.

It was SO hot in Folsom on Saturday -- like 105 degrees at one point! We stayed cool in the pool and inside in the air conditioning. Owen spent 90% of the afternoon playing in the pool and jumping off the diving board, while Luke had no interest in getting into the pool and instead focused on procuring himself as many snacks and drinks as he could get while chasing down the cats and dogs. 

We had a great time visiting with family, and it always goes way too quickly! We got up early (as usual) to hit the road to make it home for Owen's buddy's birthday party. It was super hot at home too, so once we made it back to our house we turned on the AC, which is such a nice perk of having a brand new house. It rarely gets hot enough to need it here, but when it does heat up we're always to thankful for it.

Sunday afternoon we hung out at home, cooked dinner and got chores done. I sold our coffee table to someone from a FB buy / sell group. I bought the table and a matching sofa table when we first got married and while I still liked them, the glass tops just weren't working for us anymore, and we prefer the extra play space instead of having a coffee table in the family room. Anyway, I was glad to finally get the table out of our entryway.

I've been trying to make Owen's snacks the night before school to make our mornings smoother, and I'm always thankful when I do. We have to be out the door by 7:40 to make it to school, so having one less thing to do in the morning makes my life much easier! Any fun snack ideas? Send 'em my way!

And, last thing, just taking a little poll: Have you heard of Lipsense? Do you use it?

Let me know in the comments below!

My sister in law just bought a bunch of Lipsense colors and she loved them, so I asked if I could try a color or two of hers out. Let me tell you, it stays on FOREVER! I actually woke up with color on my lips, pretty crazy. I loved the color (praline rose) and the glossy gloss. It stayed on all day (and night) and wasn't super sticky, which I hate. My only con was, it seemed to dry my lips out.
