Labor Day Recap

Labor Day Recap

Hello there!  Hope you had a great Labor Day weekend.  It was a bit of a washout here on the east coast so unfortunately no beach time for us!  We managed to make the most of it, however.  I’m proud to say that despite my arm, I managed to get in a whole hour of tennis and actually improved on some of my shots.  It’s a really good thing I fell on my left side and not my right!

We also got to meet up with some friends who have a house close by.  We went over for a bbq and were treated with some gorgeous sunsets on the lake in back of their house!

And although the rain prevented us from making any bonfires, we cooked up some gourmet s’mores!  Have you ever heard of Plush Puffs?  They have all these different flavors of marshmallows.  I decided to get a bunch so we could try different flavored s’mores.  I picked out: caramel, s’mores, mochaccino and coconut.

These babies were a hit!  We all tried different flavors and let’s just say the gooey marshmallow surrounded by melted chocolate and crispy graham crackers were gone from our plates in just minutes.


Luckily I have plenty of marshmallows leftover for more s’mores.  Or just for eating!

Readers, what did you do this weekend?  Did the rain effect your Labor Day plans?  Have you ever tried flavored marshmallows?

    Those marshmallows look so good!! I love smores! We watched the football game, a few movies, and then went to the drive-in. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Tennis looks like so much fun!

    I’m sorry it rained during your long weekend! It looks like you made it up pretty well with a game of tennis. ๐Ÿ™‚ Fortunately, we had great weather and I ate my little heart out.

    I ate like crazy at some great get-togethers for Labor Day–back to better eating a bit of a workout to start the week.

    Fun Fun Brittany! You are full of fitness surprises, I love the diversity!!! The bbq view was beautiful and those flavors sound delicious for the s’mores! I worked all weekend, but I ate lots of good food. I was fortunate to have people look out for me even though I was stuck sleeping all day and working at night.

    You look cute with your tennis outfit – love it! I have so much fun playing tennis even though I’m not very good at it. I used to play with my hubby all the time in San Diego, but we haven’t really played since moving. I think you may have just sparked my interest in finding a court near me though!

    I LOVE S’mores!! Totally reminds me of The Sandlot :). Despite the not so great weather, looks like you had a great time!

    Okay, now I want a s’more! I usually don’t make them because marshmallows are full of so much junk but those gourmet marshmallows look perfect.

    Glad to hear your right arm is working well and that you had a good weekend!

    What a great weekend! Look at you playing tennis and telling your elbow who’s boss! I’ve never tried one of those fancy marshmallows but they look out of this world :).

    I’ve been meaning to play tennis all summer but haven’t gotten around to it – so sad I missed out on that this year, I can’t think of a better way to spend labour day than on the courts!

    I LOVE s’mores! ๐Ÿ™‚ There is a restaurant out here in LI where you can get s’mores on a platter WITH a mini fire to toast up your marshmellows too.

    I had an indoor labor day with family this year and I really enjoyed it. It’s so much more messy when we have a big bbq outside.

    Those marshmallows look awesome! I’m incredibly jealous of your lake time ๐Ÿ™‚ I moved to Tucson from IL almost 3 years ago and I miss being surrounded by lakes and boating, wakeboarding, tubing, etc. So relaxing!!

      Thanks Paige! I don’t think I could not live by the water because it is one of my most favorite things in life. Although I have to say, the lifestyle in Az looks amazing!
