Labor Day Weekend

We’re living the life over here! The long weekend came and we didn’t do a whole heck of a lot. Michael had plans Friday night so Logan and I kicked back on the couch to watch season 2 of Outlander. Pretty pretty exciting. πŸ˜‰

Saturday I went to the gym and got in a pretty good workout. I did burpees for the first time in a year (I forgot how hard those were) and a bunch of other body weight exercises. I was feeling pretty good afterward:


I wanted to get some beer for the long weekend so Logan and I walked to the grocery store and back (1.55 miles). It was nice out, despite the black rain clouds off in the distance. We lucked out and it was warm and sunny and we didn’t get rained on (it had been raining off and on for a few days).


When we got home I fed him and then ate lunch and then I just crashed. I was so so tired I could barely keep my eyes open. I tried to lay down for a little bit but Logan didn’t let me sleep for too long. I had an awful feeling I was fighting off a sickness.

I got really lucky and haven’t been sick in a year and a half. Pretty amazing, especially considering I was pregnant at the height of cold and flu season last year. I was SO glad I never caught anything. But I suppose we’re getting into that time again and I’ve just been feeling run down lately–more than just normal sleep-deprivation-due-to-baby run down.

Anyways. I drank a probiotic drink with lunch. I’ve been drinking EmergenC. I’m crossing my fingers it turns out to be nothing. I know once Logan starts daycare in a few weeks my immune system is going to be fair game. I am NOT looking forward to that!


Sunday was a low-key day. I went swimming. Michael worked on some house projects and our evening wrapped up with homemade pizza and beer:



We used to make homemade pizza a lot and Michael got pretty good at it. But honestly it’s a lot of work. Ever since we discovered Trader Joe’s pizza dough, it’s a million times easier and we’ve been doing homemade pizzas again.


Monday Michael went for a run and so did Logan and I! Β I say “run” but it was a walk/jog. I’ve been doing that a few times a week for the last month with Logan, trying to get my “running legs” back.



Michael passed us on the end of his run when Logan and I were about half way through ours. πŸ™‚

After that it was off to a friend’s house for a BBQ!IMG_3164

The BBQ was at my friend Erika’s house and my other friend Robyn (Robyn and Erika were both bridesmaids in my wedding) and her hubby came so it was the 6 (7 if you count little L) of us. It was nice to hang out! I hate to admit it but I’ve slacked on seeing friends the last month or so. I’ve just been so busy and it was nice we could all hang out.

And we were having so much fun talking and catching up and sitting outside with some beers that we didn’t even realize that it was almost 7pm!

It was a nice way to end the holiday weekend!

  1. Sounds like the perfect weekend to me – half lazy/half productive! For the record, I make my no rise pizza dough (2 cups water, 1 teaspoon yeast, 1 teaspoon flour, 1 cup water) and mix it together and just leave it in the fridge for up to 10 days so I always have pizza dough on hand – it actually tastes better the longer it sits in the fridge. πŸ˜€

  2. Smitten Kitchen has a terrific easy pizza dough recipe based on Jim Lahey’s no knead recipe.

    My go to is Mark Bittman’s because I have it memorized! In a food processor combine 3 cups all purpose flour, 2 teaspoons yeast, 2 teaspoons kosher salt and 2 tablespoons olive oil. With the machine running slowly add 1 cup water. Process until it comes together and forms a ball. Shape into a nicer ball and put in an oiled bowl and cover with plastic. Let it rise a few hours before using.

    Often I make the dough after dinner, let it rise for 1-2 hours on the counter and then put it in the fridge to cold ferment overnight.

    We haven’t attempted using a pizza peel and stone. It looks a little out of my coordination level. LOL.
    I use the Pampered Chef cookie pan.
