Friday evening we got done with camp and John Luke, Sarah, Pippa, and me jumped in the car and headed over to Delhi to spend the weekend at my parent’s house. I realized this weekend how truly happy I am to be in Louisiana for the summer. The heat and humidity really does feel unbearable at times (most of the time), but if you find some type of body of water it’s manageable haha!
Saturday we slept late and just lounged around in the house. We rested as much as we could with Teagon running around us begging us to come play ha. (For any new-comers to my blog, Teagon is my 3-year old little bro!) We spent the afternoon swimming in the pool and reading and laying out on the dock.
Lately I’ve had some of you asking questions about what I eat and working-out. A few months ago I had some major eating changes and from it I’m feeling AMAZING. I’ll go more into detail about that at a later time, but just thought while I was at it I could share this quick and easy recipe with you!
2 pieces of gluten-free bread (Ezekiel flax is my fav…it’s got gluten in it, but if I eat it in small amounts it doesn’t bother my stomach!)
1 slice of tomato
Herby (a real game-changer) (and no this isn’t sponsored, I just LOVE it and want to tell the world about it haha)
Then just put it all together for a nice little sandwich and you’re set! We weren’t super hungry, so JL and I split one, but I’d say they are surprisingly pretty filling. Shout-out to my sister Kelly for the idea! Add some watermelon and La Croix and you’re golden. Also, if you have not tried La Croix you are missing out on one of the world’s greatest treasures haha. It’s flavored sparkling water and so refreshing. My favorite is coconut, but people either love it or hate it. If you’re wanting to try it, I’d say start with the strawberry-pienapple, lime, or cran-ras!
Saturday night my grandparents drove over for an early Father’s Day dinner and my grandfather blew me away on the ukulele. He used to be in a band, so I knew he was good at music, but I was so impressed with how much he can still play! Isn’t that so fun when you’re grandparents whip out their own talents and surprise you?! I’ve known him for a whole 21 years, but just last night discovered he could do that! We ended the night with a family game of Nertz, which is my absolute favorite card game (insert heart eyes).
Sunday for Father’s Day we all spent the morning together and then headed over to West Monroe for church. Our church just started a new contemporary service and it’s been incredible. A quick lunch then back out to camp!!
Today I am thankful for: my dad and all the other father’s out there who are leading their families well, a refreshing weekend, and all these middle-schoolers out at camp.
