Spring Break - Part Uno

Ahh, Spring Break. 

I love you. I miss you. 

When we starting batting around ideas for what we wanted to do for Spring Break, we need we wanted something chill. After having Disney passes last year, we wanted to be able to hang low & kinda just "be". Do NOT get me wrong, I love me some Disney something fierce but those trips are not relaxing. Fun? Absolutely a blast! Chill? Um, no.

So where do you go to chill? The beach, or course! We found a smokin' deal on an apartment just feet from the bay. We stayed on Mission Beach & we were actually super close to the bay & "big beach". 

Friday night, Addy & I were trying on our sunnies & hats. We couldn't wait to be in CA!

Early Saturday morning, we loaded up & headed west! The trip was super easy. The kiddos watched movies on the iPad & I got to read smutty magazines while J chauffeured us to the beach. It was road trip bliss. 

(Momma is rockin' the no heat curls. Holla.)

We drove straight to El Indio & the angles sang a glorious tune. 

We filled our bellies with delicious mexican food & headed to check out digs. As soon as we were inside our apartment, the kiddos put their suits on & we headed to the WATER! It was so nice to get to stick our toes in the sand & relax. Ahhhh. 

Sunday morning, the lacyfam4 walked down to The Mission Cafe for an amazing breakfast.  We timed it perfectly & sat right down to our awesome table!

Mmm, I am craving some Mission food right now! My breakfast was the green corn tamales with a green verde sauce. Ooh, so good! Jason had the breakfast quesadilla (didn't snap a pic. I was too busy shoveling food into my mouth) & the kiddos split the strawberry banana pancakes. Their pancakes are HUGE & so good!

We walked back to our apartment along the "big beach" & had to stop to enjoy our view.  And take a picture, duh!

 We met up with my parents & headed to get groceries. Both of our units had full kitchens so we were able to eat some meals at home. SO convenient!  This Ralph's made me laugh because you had to take the escalator up with your cart. 

After we did the boring ol' grocery shopping, we hit the beach again. We love, LOVE to build sandcastles. So, we did. 

Addy & I went for a run Monday morning. I usually run inside on a treadmill & have just recently started doing my runs outside. It was amazing to get to run along the water. I would run outside every day if I lived in MB!
What do you so after you burn calories? Well, you consume more calories! Ha. We headed to Luigi's at the Beach for pizza & wings. Addison tried wings for the first time.

She was a fan.

We headed home to nap off the carbs & meet up with Mimi & Papa. Once nap time was all over, we walked along the bay to the Bahia Resort  to see the Sea Lions they have there. That was such a fun little treat! 

Up next...our day at the San Diego Zoo!

Fun weekend!

We had such a wonderful weekend. It was one of those weekends where we didn't have much on the schedule & the weather was too good to stay inside!

Friday night, we loaded up the kiddos & the pup & drove through Chick-fil-a. (Hands down, my favorite WW friendly fast food.)  We took our dinner out to Estrella Mountain Ranch to enjoy the amazing views & gorgeous weather!

My new favorite picture EVER! All my favorites right there in one picture.

Saturday morning, we dropped the kiddos off at my SIL house (thanks SO much, Kerri! You are the best!!) so we could go see The Hunger Games! We went with another couple & my mom joined along too. It was SO good! I loved it so much. I felt like it did the book justice. 

Sunday was spent at church & hanging out. Best way to spend a Sunday in my book! Addy & I planted a little herb garden & then went for a run. Crosby came along & they are both great little running buddies!

I hope you had a fantastic weekend as well!

Hey there bloggy friends. I have been such a less than stellar blogger lately. It's not from lack of content (Spring Break, baby!) but I haven't sat down to write. I miss it! I will be better!

Today I am linking up with Jeannett over at Life Rearranged for InstaFriday. This is a peek at our week through Instagram. Are you on Instagram? If so, find me - mrs_lacy!

I have hit WW hardcore since getting back from Spring Break. I don't watch what I eat on vacation. One of my favorite things to do is try new restaurants in new cities & I like to focus on that as opposed to stressing about points & tracking. I eat more than I typically do on vacation (duh.) but we are also super active on our vacations (hello, San Diego Zoo! Such a workout!) so it evens out. That being said, it feels good to be back OP!

I made buffalo chicken lettuce wraps for dinner & they was super yummy.  I cut the chicken up in little pieces & sautéed it in a little oil. Once it was done, I tossed it in a bowl with a little Frank's wing sauce. Put it in a lettuce leaf, added some blue cheese, & voila' - easy OP meal! 

My breakfast this am. I am usually a cornflakes & banana girl but today I mixed up with eggs & veggies. Yum. 

Last week when we were on Spring Break, Addison & I went for a run along the beach - top picture was my view. This week, when I went for my run, the bottom picture was my view. 

I miss you, Mission Beach!

A lady from our church posted this on Twitter on Tuesday & I instantly fell in love. Like, I wanted to go pick him up without even checking with Jason. I did the good wifey thing & did check with him & while he was kinda hesitant, I was all in. I told him that this pup was coming to live at our house & since I am the one home all day, I get to make the decision. Ha! Did I say I was a good wifey?

We went to "meet" him Wednesday night but I knew we were bringing him home. We put him in the back of my SUV but he kept climbing so I sat in the back to calm him down. He just came on over the seat & sat on my lap. I rode the ten minutes home with him on my lap. I didn't mind - he had my heart!

Crosby officially has a home in the Lacy house!

I have never had a dog steal my heart like he has. He is my shadow & I love it.

I am crazy about Crosby.

My little man was tuckered out after Bible Study & Chick-fil-a. He fell asleep holding his fry!

 I mean, does it get any better than little man snuggles?

Nope. Sure doesn't.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! We are going to see The Hunger Games tomorrow morning & I CAN NOT WAIT!

No Heat Curls!

Hey friends!

There are a ton of how-to videos for the no heat curls but I wanted to let you know how I do it! The difference for me is that I blow the top dry because otherwise it is limp & totally blahhhh. No girl wants blah hair, right? 

WARNING: There is music at 3:19 so if you are watching during nap time, turn your speaker down! Don't want to wake the sleeping babes!


Here are the goodies that I used during the video. If you have any questions, please leave a comment or shoot me an email!
