The Past Two Days

Well it has been a really great weekend so far, I must say.

First, we had the wedding on Friday, which was obviously a blast.

Then on Saturday evening, we had some friends over to help finish the back deck (it’s gone!) and ended the evening with a bbq and a bonfire.

And Octoberfest. Because it’s officially September now, so I can fully justify it. Winking smile

Jay is actually the one who decided to pick it up the other night when we stopped at Trader Joe’s…we just waited to dive in until the time was right.

Yesterday, I enjoyed a bit of lazy time in the morning, followed by this great walk on the treadmill plus a few easy abs moves. After that, we headed out to celebrate this little guy’s first birthday, and then spent the rest of our day up on Saratoga Lake.

It was a beautiful day, so we split our time between the boat, playing the most epic game ever of cornhole, and enjoying time with family.

I took the entire past two days off from the camera and decided to just embrace the weekend (thank you to Jay, who used his Instagram a few times!). I think for those of us who do blog pretty consistently that it’s so great to take some time off now and then, to just live in the now…instead of behind the lens. Ya know? Smile


This morning, I woke up and immediately put on a pot of coffee while I got some breakfast ready. Empty peanut butter jar in the house…you know what THAT means.


OIAJ, baby! But not just any oats in a jar…


Can ya tell? Can ya?


It’s now September. If you read this old post, you’ll know what’s happenin’ up in there. (going back and reading old posts like that always make me laugh and cringe at the same time)

A couple quick things…

  • Many of you asked where I get my cupcake boxes. I get them from a local store but they also have a website you can order from called Confectionery House.
      • To hold one dozen cupcakes, I use THIS BOX and THIS INSERT.
      • My store also has boxes that hold two dozen cupcakes, but I couldn’t find those on the website.
  • I know I still owe you guys a full wedding recap, and a lemon cupcake recipe. They’ll be headed your way this week.

But for now, I’m off to go enjoy the rest of my long weekend…hopefully you’re all doing the same!

    Glad you were able to enjoy your weekend! It’s nice to live without thinking whether a specific situation is blog-worthy and just enjoy it for what it is!

    Good for you for taking a bit of a picture taking/blogging break and actually enjoying your time away from the computer!! I take off every weekend because that is the only time my entire family is able to spend quailty time with one another without constantly rushing around.

    I just bought Tim a 12 pack of the Fall variety of Sam Adams. I cannot believe it is that time of year already.
    We went to Trader Joe’s yesterday and it was CRAZY! We walked out without buying anything because it was so crowded that we could not really look for anything. Maybe we will make the trip again some time during the week, hopefully that will make a difference.
