A Warm Weekend

This past weekend definitely brought a taste of summer with it! The temps were in the low to mid 80s and it felt like summer! 

My weekend began with a quick run to Trader Joe's for some groceries on Friday afternoon! I love shopping at TJ's because they have the prettiest bouquets of flowers for less than $5! It's amazing how much a fresh bouquet of bright tulips can brighten up a living room! 

I found these acai puree packets while browsing the aisles and immediately tossed them into my cart. My love for acai bowls started a few years ago during my first trip to Oahu -- they are so refreshing! 

So naturally, I made one as soon as I arrived home and unloaded all of the groceries. I tossed the packet in the blender along with some apple juice, strawberries, and ice before topping it with bananas, berries, coconut, chia seeds, and honey. It definitely hit the spot! 

Later that evening, we went out for dinner and then headed to a regional park to walk around the lake. Unfortunately, it started sprinkling just as we arrived at the park, so we headed home and played our favorite card game before calling it a night.

The next morning, we woke up to beautiful blue skies and a high of 83! We ran a few errands before coming back home for lunch and then heading out for solo walks! 

I went by myself because I wanted to pick up my books that were on hold at the library and then I had a phone call planned with a friend. I'm not a huge phone person (I prefer face-to-face communication), but when I do talk on the phone, I enjoy going for walks. It was so warm outside and by the time I finished up my phone call, I was more than ready to hang out inside for a bit to cool down! 

After an evening of homemade pizza and salad, we headed back outside to walk down by the lake to catch the sunset. This was the perfect end to the evening! 

Sunday's weather was a repeat of Saturday's, so we took advantage by spending the majority of the day outside again. We played tennis near the lake for a bit before Andy's friend came over to play a few rounds with him. During this time, I headed to another local lake to rollerblade the afternoon away! I was SO ready for a cool shower and a relaxing evening after this excursion! 

Do you play tennis?
Ever had an acai bowl?
