Happy Monday Everyone! How was your weekend? Mine was absolutely fantastic. It started off Friday afternoon with a little homemade strawberry ice cream!
It was really somewhere in between a smoothie and ice cream, but on a hot summer afternoon, it was absolutely perfect and SO easy!
Strawberry Ice Cream
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 5-7 frozen strawberries (mine were huge so I only used 5)
- hand full of ice
- 1/2 cup of water
- 1/2 tsp xantham gum
When E got home, we headed out to dinner. I have been craving pizza for about 2 weeks, and there is a restaurant near by that has delicious gluten-free thin crust, so that is where we headed.
It was amazing, I'm not going to lie. It hit the spot, and I was one happy and full camper after dinner! :)
On Saturday, I had brunch with my amazing friend Kelli who is going to be a mama soon! Then I did something so not like me........ I got crafty. Yep that's right, I attempted to make something with my own two hands. Now, you only see my typing, but if you saw my hand writing you would know why this is a scary thing. Luckily, with Kelli's expert coaching (and the fact that I only had to cut, glue, and place stickers), I successfully completed my mission.
E and I go to A LOT, I MEAN A LOT, of sporting events, and he likes to keep all of his tickets as souvenirs. They were beginning to take over his desk, so when I saw a box like this on Pinterest, I knew I had to attempt to make one for him. I was pretty excited with how it turned out. Please do not be fooled, this is only one of the many piles of tickets he has lying around, but it's a start! :)
Sunday, of course, was dedicated to grocery shopping, laundry, and flag football. I did get in a run for the first time since I hurt my foot back in February. It felt so good to be back on the road!!
E played really well, and as always, we had a ton of fun hanging out with our friends!
So what's the big news??...................... We're moving to Florida at the end of the summer!! I can hardly believe it myself, but it's happening whether we are ready or not.
E decided a couple of months ago that he was not happy with his job in public accounting. He has always been a huge sports buff, and after really thinking about it, he decided that he would probably never be happy with a job that did not involve sports in some way. He is a natural born teacher, and loves learning about all things sports related, and more specifically the business side of sports. After one very long walk with Champ and a lot of talking, he decided he wanted to go back to school to get his Ph.D in Sport Management with the hopes of becoming a professor. He applied in March, and we found out in May that he had been accepted to Florida State University's Sport Management Ph.D program!!
I couldn't be more proud of him for following his dream and going back to school to pursue a career I know he will love! :) Needless to say, the fact that we will be moving half way across the country in less than a month and a half has definitely turned our world upside down, but we are excited for the new adventure, and I know God is sending us to Tallahassee for a reason. We leave tomorrow to try to find a house and explore the town. We are both so excited, and I am beyond happy for E!
Tallahassee here we come!!
I hope you all have a wonderful Monday and a great week!
How was your weekend?
Is anybody out there from Tallahassee? Any advice? Things we have to do while we're there this week?
