THE DAY | 7.22.18

Hey everyone!

I hope you're all having a happy Sunday!

I actually woke up at 8 am this morning to clean up my apartment because my mom, dad, and aunt were coming over for brunch.  So basically I had to finish laundry, sweep, clean off the counters, and meal prep for brunch.  I found a recipe online for an egg casserole and so I went to the grocery store last night to pick up the ingredients.  Then, this morning I whipped it all together and then put it in the fridge for a little while until about half an hour before they were supposed to arrive.  The kitchen smelled DELISH!!  My mom, dad and aunt arrived at my apartment around 11am with a Caribou coffee in hand (Mmmmmm!) We sat down to eat the biscuit egg cassrole and it was so so so so good - I really highly recommend making this if you are looking for a SUPER easy recipe.  You can find the recipe I used here!

After we ate too much food, we decided it would be a good idea to get some exercise to burn off some of those calories LOL.  We went to the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge which is pretty close to my new apartment but one of us had ever been there before.  We did some hiking down into the valley, but didn't go too far because my ankle is still a bit sore from the sprain.  But it was so pretty, with lots of birds and foliage everywhere!  It was like walking in the rainforest!  It was really nice to get out in nature and breath in the fresh air.  Or as my dad joked "probably not that fresh of air because it is located near an airport and major freeway" LOL.

After we were done, we came back to my apartment and relaxed on the couch for a little bit and then they packed up and left.  I actually took a nap on the couch shortly afterwords...I don't know what it is, but I must have been so tired!  I had a couple of pieces of the leftover biscuit egg casserole (with some pineapple salsa, yum!) . Now I am just relaxing on my couch, watching a marathon of Catfish, and writing this blog post now.  I should probably take a shower and start getting ready to head to work tomorrow.  I might do a face mask and take a nice, long bath.  I actually recently got a new bath bomb from lush that smells of lemons and it smells DIVINE!  This is making me excited.  Ok I'm going to do that now.

What have you been up to this weekend?  I hope it's been great!
Talk to you soon!
