Calm Before the Storm

There is something about Sundays I love and there is something about Sundays I hate (mostly that Monday is the next day :)). Sundays are definitely the calm before the storm. I use my Sundays to relax and prepare things that I will need during the week. Today I went to the pool to get some relaxing in. My friend Nikki joined me and it was great to sit and chat :). I also did some errands and cleaned the house up. I put together some black bean dip (to use in my lunches as a dip for vegis) and boiled up a bundle of hard boiled eggs for Josh's breakfasts. For dinner tonight I had planned to make a nice cornmeal crusted shrimp but opted for something much easier! I took Nature's Promise Mac and Cheese:

and added some boiled shrimp and peas. It was a delicious and fast dinner:

The rest of my weekend was great as well! Friday I took Body Pump and then Josh and I went out to dinner. Saturday I taught Body Step/Turbo Kick and then made up some of the banana marble swirl bread.
The bread and a platter I bought at Pier 1 were housewarming gifts for my friends Amy and Mark. We went up to their house (which is gorgeous!!) on Saturday night and then went out to dinner. It was a blast!! How was your weekends? What do you have planned for this week?

I definitely feel the same way about Sundays. I dread going to sleep because I know when I wake up, the weekend is officially over!

That mac & cheese with shrimp looks just yum. So does the banana marble bread - I'm sure your friends were very impressed!

The weather was definitely perfect here over the weekend, so I spent a lot of it outside! And this week marks the last of the internship, so I'll be heading home to see my family soon! Hurray!

Hope you have a great one :o)
