Memorial Day Weekend Recap

Three day weekends are just the best. Any chance I get to eat good food, hang out with my family, and not have to go to work are big pluses! This weekend, I did just that!

Friday, I indulged in my own version of Happy Hour. A Dunkin Donuts iced coffee, and Sabra hummus was on the "menu" for me. For dinner that night, it was family pizza night, and my mom made 4 different kinds. I was starving and did not get any pictures, but she made bbq chicken, vegetable, sausage and peppers, and pepperoni. Trust me when I say it was delicious!

Saturday was the perfect Pennsylvania day. There was not a cloud in the sky, so I took advantage of that and worked on my tan. I was craving some buffalo chicken dip, so I made a skinny version! You could not tell it was a lightened up version at all! I will be posting a recipe soon!

Later that evening, it was time for the annual pictures by the rhododendron bushes. I have been doing this for as long as I can remember. My mom was the photographer, and we had some hits, and misses with the photos, so I think there will be a round two with a change of outfits!

Sunday was all about relaxation again. I worked on my tan, and helped my parent's get out our lawn furniture. Then my great grandpa took us out to dinner. We went to a restaurant we haven't been to in a while, and we were reminded of how good the food was there! I got a Cajun turkey sandwich on jalapeno wheat bread, and it was absolutely delicious! It had brown sugar bacon and cheddar cheese on it as well. You can't go wrong with anything that involves bacon and cheese. Am I right?!
I have better pictures, but waiting for a separate post!

Monday, my aunt hosted the Memorial Day picnic. The traditional fare was served, hot dogs, baked beans, cheesy potatoes, the usual. Every last bite was delectable! It was a good thing I went two miles on the treadmill that morning!! Check my Instagram for photos from Monday! We visited my grandparents, and I came home and got a few things ready for the week ahead. The only thing between me and Summer is 5 1/2 work days! Two this week, and three and a half next week. So, so pumped for that!

That was my long weekend in a nutshell! How was yours? Anything memorable happen? I'd love to read about them! Leave me a comment and let me know!
