Let the festivities begin

My favorite Holiday week has officially begun!
This morning Brent and I went to GPP and did this workout. I love tabatas! I was pretty sweaty beast.
This weekend I promised I would share my recipe for the salad I brought to the blogger potluck last Saturday! It's easy and simple. Heck, its just a salad. But a delicious one at that!
Chicken Artichoke Parmesan Salad
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Spinach
  • 6 oz. Grilled Chicken
  • 1 15 oz. can of Artichoke
  • Grape tomatoes
  • Sliced Almonds
Top with Lucini, Bold Parmesan & Garlic dressing!
I love this salad because it is simple and can come together quick and effortlessly.
Breakfast this morning also came together easily
Sweet potato waffles, egg whites with spinach with some grilled chicken. I know, I’m weird.. but Brent grilled it late last night and I didn’t have any and woke up wanting it, so I did.

Tonight we headed to a local car show, I think it was the first one but T was in absolute heaven. This little boy is all about anything cars, trains, motorcycles or helicopters
My FIL has a 56 Chevy Bel-Air that he had out for display. We made sure to swing by and hang out with him for a little bit.
Before heading over to watch the motorcycles do some crazy stunts. They were insane, a talent that I will never have the guts to do…
It was fun seeing nice and expensive cars but I’m a bigger van of the classics. Check this one out!
A VW bus!! If I’m ever forced to be a mini van mom (not that there is anything wrong with that), I’m going to request this gem. Freals.
It was a perfect ending to the day! Tomorrow there are fireworks!!
The sunsets in Bountiful are pretty amazing.
Its way past my bedtime! I was planning on sharing my July goals but it will have to wait till tomorrow.
Goodnight Y’all.


  1. That salad looks delicious Candice! I will have to give it a try! Have fun at the fireworks tonight!

  2. I loved your salad! Artichokes are one of my favorites!!

  3. Looks like you had a great day! I love the twinkie van! I told Nick that at some point in our life we will own one and travel around with our bicycles in the back. Apparently I'm a hippie deep down :)
