Sunday Funday

My sisters and I had to say goodbye to my mom this weekend and we already miss her terribly! Emily stayed a few extra days and I’m so glad she did…they are easing Allie and me out of it, instead of just leaving us all at once!

So, since Emily stayed, she got to experience Sunday Funday with Allie and me. We planned on getting up a little early to accomplish everything we wanted to…but when morning came, we hit snooze several times on our alarm and postponed our activities a little. Sleeping in is one of the greatest activities on the planet. We very much enjoyed ourselves.

Once, we finally got up, we got ready and went on what we call an urban hike. There are lots of hills in Beverly Hills with lots of pretty houses and buildings, so we decided to hike up and down those hills! (And our legs are all feeling tired today, that’s for sure!)

Then, on our way home from the hike, we stopped at the Beverly Hills Farmers Market to pick up fresh fruit to use in our brunch we decided to make!

As soon as we got home, we got right down to business cooking. Recently, we bought Gwyneth Paltrow’s cookbook and we couldn’t wait to try out a few of her recipes. We made Watermelon Mint Fresca, Buttermilk Pancakes with bananas and blackberries, and a fresh fruit salad! So delicious and refreshing!

And that wraps up Sunday Funday! We loved having Emily around and will be very sad to say goodbye to her tonight! But, luckily for me, I will see her in three weeks…yay!
