Scenes from the Week

by tinareale on August 4, 2012

I wanted to start something new around here. I love catching up with you all in LIFE and figured what better way to do that than through pictures. So, let’s do just that with a few scenes from the week. And you can always follow along on Instagram as the action happens!

Made sure to get my vote on in the local election. Be sure to get out there in November!

We had this delicious combo for dinner one night this week. I wanted something quick and easy (don’t I always?!) so I cooked up some quinoa in a blend of water and pineapple juice. Then sauteed up a mix of broccoli, red bell pepper, onion, and edamame in some sesame oil. Tossed it all together with some chopped pineapple for a somewhat Hawaiin themed tasty, healthy dinner. FYI moms: the kids gobbled it up too!


Smoothie in a wine glass! I don’t know what it is, but I almost always like drinking my smoothies from a wine glass. More fun that way, I guess.

I love watching Braedon and Makenzie play together. They were rolling around inside of this play tent for at least an hour the other day just laughing and laughing and laughing. Fingers crossed they always stay this close. Winking smile

Getting back my workout  mojo after last week’s recovery week. I always feel so wonderful after a good sweat. What about you?

First thing I do every afternoon after the kid’s go down for their naps. Coffee + Bible + devotional study = the best afternoon pick me up I can think of out there.

Your Turn – Best part of your week? Fun weekend plans?

I love the peak into your daily life. :-) We have a low-key weekend planned as we gear up for a road trip mid-week next week. Lots of preparations to do.

So happy to have discovered your blog and looking forward to being a regular reader… Great pictures! What did we ever do before Instagram? :-) Have a great weekend….. I just finished my run and am off to now do my bible study before enjoying some family down time!

You’re completely right- Smoothies in wine glasses DO taste better! :)

Right now I’m doing a devotional/study from Beth Moore called Believing God. I’m about 3 weeks in and LOVE it!

I voted! I always feel a sense of civic pride when I go to work especially when it’s not a big election.

Not sure if you would be willing to do a post on your devotional reader etc but it is something I have been wanting to work on and need some guidance…an email would work too if you had time :)

I would be happy to answer any specific questions you have. The study I’m doing right now is a 10 week one from Beth Moore called Believing God.
