Wrapping Up the Week

Thank goodness it's finally Friday! It's been one of those weeks where each work day feels longer than it should and each evening feels too short. I've really been lacking in blog inspiration lately and I'm sure I've bored many of you to tears with my lackluster posts. I promise to try to be better. Hopefully summer will bring fun times, good stories, and more pictures. Of course nothing will top last year's two-week vacation to Hawaii, but that doesn't mean I'm not going to try!

Highlights of my week:

On Monday I re-discovered foodgawker.com, which led me to an unbelievably delicious (and easy) pizza recipe. All you need to make it: store bought pizza dough (we prefer Trader Joe's whole wheat), store bought pesto, frozen uncooked shrimp, and freshly grated parmesan cheese. Delicious!



On Tuesday, I got my fry bread on! Don't know what fry bread is? I didn't either until I had Auntie's Fry Bread and now my world has been changed! According to their website, fry bread is a Native American style bread that is light, fluffy, and delicious (true, true, & true!). If you are in the Los Angeles area, I highly recommend finding the Auntie's Fry Bread food truck and trying it for yourself.

On Wednesday, I hit 200 miles on my bike! I also realized that I've lost around 2.5 pounds since last week and I'm pretty sure I owe it all to riding my bike.

On Thursday, I made The Pioneer Woman's strawberry shortcake cake. Strawberries are pretty much my favorite fruit and I'm so happy they are in season. I have been on a cake kick lately and this was definitely not a disappointment. I would have added my own picture, but let's face it, hers turned out much prettier than mine!



And now it's Friday! The weekend is so close I can reach out and touch it! I'm looking forward to sleeping in, riding bikes with C, seeing Hangover II, and having an extra day off!

Have a lovely long weekend friends!

PS - Fun fact: I haven't driven my car in a week! In fact, I haven't even been out to the parking lot since Sunday. Maybe I should go check to make sure it's still there...
