Weekend Eats and Activities

Happy Sunday!  It’s so nice to be off of work on a Monday!  Are any of you off of work tomorrow?  It just gives Sunday nights a while different feel.

I hope all of you have had a nice weekend!  Ours has been fairly low-key, which is nice.

On Saturday morning, I took Sadie-bug to her friend Coalson’s birthday party.  She had a blast in the bounce houses and going down the giant slides!

I think Ryan was super-appreciative because afterwards she took a nice long nap!

While Sadie was napping, I helped out with some Zumba instructor auditions and then hit Trader Joe’s for some goodies.  I sure wish we had a TJs in our town, but luckily we live close enough to Charlotte that I can go occasionally.  Trader Joe’s has great produce for great prices and they also offer a great selection of convenience foods.  I came home with a bag full of goodies, which included ingredients to make pizza at home!  Luckily I had my little helper to help get the dough ready!




We topped ours with mozzarella, pepperoni, and fresh basil. I did have one fail.  I forgot pizza sauce!  DOH!  Luckily I had some leftover sauce in the fridge.  Oops! 



The pizza was delicious!  I love making our own.  I used the TJs pizza dough, which is very convenient, but I also make pizzas with pitas, bagels, and round flat breads!

I also have become highly addicted to grapefruit! 


It seems weird, considering it is the middle of winter, but the taste buds want what they want.

Today I taught a fabulous Zumba class!  It really was so much fun and the best way to spend a Sunday.  I am convinced that Zumba really does make you happier.  I guess one might argue that all exercise does this, but I think Zumba is the BEST!  ;)  I am a little biased, though.

I love these shoes, but I really need some new ones.  Maybe for my birthday?
