I'm sorry I haven't been around in a couple days. My husband had off work on Friday, Sat. and Sunday because of the Holiday so we were very busy.
This is what we did on Friday.
We bought a minivan!!!
I am so excited. Look at the picture below and you will know why. This is me putting the kids in their car seats in our two door car. Not fun! We have needed a van for a while and just couldn't afford it. So now you can see why I am so thrilled to have a minivan. No more crawling in a two door car and stretching to get the kids buckled up. Honestly I'm not sure how I fit in the back seat to do it. It was worse when I was 9 months pregnant. So embarrassing! I told my husband that there is probably an imprint of my butt in the back of the drivers side seat. :) I'm so glad those days are over and I hope they make me appreciate my new van more.
This of course was the most exciting part of the weekend but we also went to three picnics. I am so picnicked out. I decided to bring the same side dish to each picnic. I think you will all love it. I really wish I would have taken a picture. I got the idea from Panara Bread. They make an awesome low fat Strawberry Poppy Seed Salad. It is Romain Lettuce, Mandarin oranges, Strawberry's (quartered), pineapple tidbits, blueberries, whole pecans and fat free poppy seed dressing. It is so easy to make. You just throw a little of everything on top of the lettuce, pour on the dressing and mix up. It was a big hit at all three picnics and I was able to enjoy something that was low fat and tasted great.
What Low-Fat sides did you bring/serve at your picnics this weekend?
