Laser Tag, Gardening, and a Workout Recap

Happy Superbowl Sunday!

I hope you are having an awesome weekend prepping for fun and Super Bowl festivities today. Our weekend consisted of going to Mexico for dinner on Friday night, followed by an intense game of laser tag.


We actually talked about going to see a movie after dinner, but we were feeling a little unsure of our abilities to stay awake for a movie, and there just happened to be an Xtreme Laser Storm next door to the restaurant.  We walked in, unsure of what we were about to find… after noticing advertisements for having birthday parties there, it soon became clear that our competition might be much younger and more agile.  But there was a wide range of ages and types and we began to feel a little more comfortable that we weren’t the creepy “older kids” hanging out at a laser tag joint on a Friday night.

After a 5 minute briefing we were sent into the war zone and the madness began.


The game lasted about 10 minutes and the goal was to shoot as many opposing team players as possible, as well as their “base” if you can get to it.  After you get hit twice you have to go to a “reloading” station and start over.  After the game is over they announce an MVP from each team… and of course Kris was the MVP of the red team (I’ve never been so proud), so we have a nice, shiny “buy one get one free” for the next time we go back (and we will be going back).

On Saturday we did some shopping/browsing and I came across this awesome vegetable gardening book!


It breaks down all kinds of different vegetables, fruits, herbs, etc. and tells you what to do by month to prep.  I want to get a fluorescent light and a table for the basement and start growing!  There will definitely be more to come on this topic!

This morning we made a delicious breakfast of pancakes and kiwi (since the super pint of kiwi that I bought is super ripe)



They weren’t the healthiest pancakes, but I tried to make myself feel a little better about them by using the Bisquick boxed recipe, but replace one cup of Bisquick with Bob’s Red Mill Buckwheat Pancake Mix.


Later we will be heading out to my parents to watch the Superbowl and celebrate my sister’s birthday with an awesome fiesta!  We began the fiesta tradition for my sister’s birthday when she turned 21, and it was such a hit that we’ve been doing it every year since.  I’m also super excited because this is a rare event for our family lately … every one is able to make it!!

I hope you have a great Sunday! Here’s the weekly workout recap:
