Certainly been a busy week! As usual, smoothies, salads, and soup were the mainstays. As were all things in the form of tacos!
Seriously though – hosted a taco bar party on Friday, which is always the easiest for a crowd! I’m pretty sure no one ended up hungry.
I can’t believe I forgot to take a pic of all the eats, but at least here’s mine. I went with a taco salad, piled high with all the good stuff.
Runs and yoga ruled the week. A few swims, and I started making calls for tennis lessons for me an R! Hoping to start towards the end of next week.
This past week has been very reflective and both wonderful and sad at the same time. My father passed away unexpectedly in October and for various reasons (my mom’s health and my busy MBA travels mainly), the memorial wasn’t scheduled until this past weekend. Due to my crazy upside down life events, I couldn’t get to WI. I do honestly believe that if anyone would understand the reasons why, it would be my father.
What I did was spend a lot of time with friends – most who came to town to celebrate the birthday of one of our Darden alum! First was the taco party at my house on Friday. Tons of kids in the pool and adults having drinks and catching up. Saturday was spent first on the beach and boating/tubing, and then having a BBQ back at birthday boy’s house. Sunday was very quiet as friends scattered back to home (DC and Charlottesville), and while they all went to brunch and to tour a Naval ship, R and I stayed home for her dose (and her post-dose belly ache relaxing). Rest of the day was grocery shopping and meal prep.
Of course needing to end with random pics, it’s overall been a good week. A lot of thinking about my Dad, missing family, and celebrating with friends.
