[MIMM] 3 Day Weekend!

January 21, 2013 at 7:52 pm 3 comments

It’s been an awesome 3 day weekend over here! What better way to share than with this marvelous link-up with Katie! 🙂

Chad and I took the youth to a weekend retreat called Behold at Camp Sumatanga near Oneonta, AL. We go to Behold every year, and the youth always have a great time, so we were excited! Here are some highlights from our trip.

I went out on an early 7 mile run. The first 3 miles were with three other boys from our youth group who needed to run for cross-country. I stayed back with one while we did run/walk intervals, so they were a little slower than normal, but I wasn’t complaining! 😉 I finished up the last 4 miles by myself. It was a little boring, but I had some great scenery!

It was a pretty awesome trip. We got back last night, which was great because I still had today off for MLK holiday!

We slept in (until 8:00!), drank coffee in bed, ate a late breakfast, and then got started on unpacking and doing laundry. We also made a trip to Publix and Walmart for a few groceries. Afterwards, we went down to my parents’ house to eat lunch and visit.

Lunch for me was Publix chili. Delicious!

I got to work on dinner when I got home from the doctor. I went with something simple, yet delicious (since we’d been eating camp food for two and a half days).


Chicken, roasted zucchini/squash, and baked sweet potatoes. I normally eat a little bit more chicken than that, but I accidentally cut it too small. It looks so puny in this picture!

I’m reeeaaally looking forward to dessert, because I picked up some new items at the grocery store that I’ve been searching for for a while now.

Chobani Bite pineapple caramel

I bought this flavor plus the coffee with dark chocolate bits. I’m SO excited to try these!!

I’m glad I could join the MIMM party this week, and I hope that you guys had a great weekend. Time to get ready for this 4 day school week! 🙂

    I just find it to be so amazing how active you & Chad are with your youth group. Glad y’all had such a fun time @ camp with them.
