Monday Round Up: National Ice Cream Cake Month

Monday, July 31, 2017

Happy Monday! I had a busy weekend (do I say this every week? But it's true!). We had a gorgeous weather weekend here, all three days. So rare lately, we have gotten a lot of rain and clouds. I really wanted to take advantage of all of it. 

But first, this little lady turned 5 months old on Friday. She is getting bigger all the time. When I look back at all her other pictures I can't believe how much she has changed in such a short time. It's so bizarre. She really is a good baby, we cannot complain. Really strong and curious too, I love that about her.


Friday I had no appointments for work so I spent the day doing work from home, which is good and bad of course. But I at least accomplished one of the major things I needed to be done. Afterwards, I got a long overdue massage and it felt amaze! My back has basically been all screwed up since Reese and the massage was step one in the process.



Saturday was a really busy day. I had a little bit of work in the AM then we took some of our friends on the boat. It was a crazy hot day so being on the water was nice. This is also a friend who, unfortunately, I don't get to spend as much time with as I'd like. It was great to catch up and relax on the water. That night D and some friends brewed some beer. We normally keg but with me being pregnant and just getting so busy. It's nice to get going again. My sister and niece came over too and it was fun for the cousins to interact. 


Sunday we met up with some other friends for a little dinner and motorcycle riding. We rode into Forest Lake to go this place Meet Market. Great sandwiches and burgers. Huge sandwiches I should say, I had to bring half of mine home. Cute little place too. We rode down through Hwy 61 (if you aren't from here it's the highway that existed before the big freeway, basically runs through the cities almost all the way up the border) all the way through Stillwater and headed home. I haven't ridden in a long time so I need to get my riding legs back, but it was fun and a gorgeous day. I didn't even need a sweatshirt while we were riding. All an all a great weekend. 

Oh! And we were home in time for Game of Thrones. Who else is watching?





P.S. Did anyone know it was National Ice Cream Cake month in July? I had no idea, but I ain't gonna fight it. When we had people over on Saturday I figured we had to break out something fun and what better than an ice cream cake? When we were kids you were lucky if maybe, maybe one of your friends had an ice cream cake ate their birthdays. Well, we are adults now and I saw a Saturday evening with friends is celebration enough ;) And it being National Ice Cream Cake month to boot? Who knew there was such a thing? Not me. Will I argue? Nope.

We cut into the Carvel Oreo cake , because I cannot resist and oreo, and it was pretty delicious. Saturday was a hot night so and an ice cream, cake hit the spot. Definitely big enough for a seven or so of us that there were.
