Scenes from the Week
1. We went bowling with friends at the new “upscale” bowling alley that opened by our house.
2. These are the $11 chicken fish tacos they served me. Lame. The food was terrible. The service was terrible…and needless to say, we won’t be going back
3. The little one.
4. Hubby & I after we did “Murph” -the hero WOD we did for Memorial day- 1 mile run, 100 pullups, 200 pushups, 300 squats, 1 mile run.
5. My clematis is so pretty this year.
6. Enjoying a deck beer. It was a little cool this weekend, but sunny most of the time at least.
7. An afternoon bike ride adventure with hubby.
8. Remembering the true meaning of memorial day.
9. Fun avocado tool my friends at Hass Avocados sent me!
