Good afternoon! How was your weekend?
On Saturday night, Danny and I went out to dinner to celebrate our anniversary. Our actual anniversary is tomorrow.
That’s the only picture where both our eyes were open at the same time and you can see my little photographer in the reflection
I surprised Danny with dinner reservations at Texas de Brazil, a Brazilian steakhouse.
Since I’m not really a meat eater, we don’t go to steakhouses often, so I thought it would be a nice change for Danny to go to Texas de Brazil. Neither one of us has been there before, and it was amazing.
I was a little worried about going since Texas de Brazil is a meat lovers dream, but after reading reviews online about their salad bar, I decided it would be worth it to try out. I got the “light dinner” which includes everything but the meat and it a little cheaper.
The salad bar was amazing with so many different items – lobster bisque soup, lettuce, smoked salmon, fresh mozzarella balls, roasted peppers, olives, smoked provolone cheese, couscous, sushi, pineapple, green beans, asparagus, au gratin potatoes, breads, etc. It was delicious. The best part was the lobster bisque - hands down.
The restaurant was pretty dark so I unfortunately didn’t get any pictures of the food.
Danny loved the meat. He had a few different kinds of beef, lamb, and sausage. They also have chicken but it didn’t make its way to our table. It was a really good dinner and a really fun night with my husband
On Sunday morning, Jaden had an Easter egg hunt in the pool at our gym. He had fun but it was a little crazy and chaotic. There was 100 kids there and they split them up by age group. Ages 3-6 went first in the shallow pool, and the kids ages 7 -10 went in the big pool.
They should have separated the kids by skill level not age because although Jaden is seven, he can’t swim in water over his head. He wouldn’t have been able to get one single egg since they were all in the deep end of the pool until I had Danny ask the lifeguard for a life jacket for him. Luckily, he was able to get a few eggs while wearing the vest.
After Jaden’s egg hunt, I went upstairs to the gym to do an upper body workout.
I did the exercises as supersets (no rest in between exercises, resting one minute in between supersets). I did 12-15 reps of each exercise, 3x.
Seated cable row
- Wide grip lat pulldown
Standing barbell biceps curls
- Single leg dumbbell biceps curls (switch legs halfway)
- Seated dumbbell shoulder press
- Standing dumbbell lateral raises
- Seated stability ball overhead triceps extensions
- Skull crushers on bench with EZ bar
- Bench dumbbell chest press
- Cable chest flys
It was a great workout and my upper body is feeling it today!
