Weekend Instagram Highlights

by Courtney on June 10, 2013

Good morning, all! How was everyone’s weekend?!

I must admit…ours was pretty spectacular. After our low-key Friday evening, Saturday was spent with all of great friends at Baby Tooth’s second shower, and Sunday was spent hanging out outside, catching up around the house, and grilling with pals.

With all that was going on, I’m still playing a little bit of catch up this morning. So before I head off to work, I’ll leave you with some highlights from the weekend…via my Instagram feed.

Friday night hanging out with my boys.

Codester was being quite funny that night…he could not decide how to get comfy.

Saturday morning workout.

After feeling totally wiped on Friday, I woke up Saturday morning feeling SO much more refreshed and energized. I honestly felt like a new person, so I decided to take advantage with some Pilates.

Baby Tooth’s Second Shower Cake.

How stinkin’ cute, right?! My parents got this cake for our shower on Saturday and not only did it look adorable, but it tasted incredible. We had so much fun at the shower…I’ll be sharing some more pics from the day as soon as I get my act together!

Running out of space.

This was what our house looked like Saturday evening after getting home from our shower. Needless to say, Jay and I are feeling incredibly blessed for all of the people who came to celebrate with us and are just as excited to meet Baby Tooth as we are. I felt like I worked on this for hours yesterday morning, (along with the four loads of laundry for the little guy) yet it looks like I barely made a dent. Yikes.

Sunday morning eye candy.

I woke up Sunday morning and came out into the living room to find Cody perched in the window. I could immediately tell he had spotted something, so I went over to check it out and sure enough, we had not one, but two chipmunks hanging out on our front steps. Codeman was ALL about these little guys…it’s a good thing they had a screen between them. ;)

Sunday BBQ with friends.

Yesterday afternoon, our pals Brian and Mal came over – Mal came to keep me company (and even helped me fold laundry, such a sweet pal!) while Brian and Jay worked a little bit more on our back deck (it’s comin’ along!!). After a few hours of working, it was time for the boys to take a break and we all enjoyed a little BBQ, al fresco. Burgers, hot dogs, corn on the cob, more couscous salad, and watermelon…aka, a meal that screams summer. LOVED it.

So there’s a little recap of our weekend…hopefully yours was filled with lots of fun stuff too!

OMG! I love that cake. How adorable. It looks like you got a great haul! :)

I was wondering, is the company called Friendship Diaries or Friendship Dairies? I saw it both ways on your site so I just wanted to check so I can look for it at the store. Thanks!


2 Courtney June 10, 2013 at 9:04 am

Oh my gosh…I’m such a goober. It’s definitely Dairies…and I just went back and realized how many times I typed it wrong. Ughh…I’m losing it! Haha…thank you for the heads up!


3 JessicaR June 10, 2013 at 9:15 am

Haha it’s okay! :) I just wanted to make sure. Thank you!

That cake is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen!!! I can’t wait to hear more about your second shower. :) Looks like the little guy has a ton of presents.

That couscous salad looks amazing. I thought it looked great when you made it before but now it looks even better. I definitely want to make it this summer.

Oh goodness, I’m dying over the cuteness of that cake! How amazing.
Your weekend sounds like it was a great one!

My dog is obsessed with squirrels just like Cody’s obsessed with chipmunks. He’s always on the prowl and sometimes they run across the top of the fence just to tease him! He runs back and forth, and then runs back and jumps in the air thinking he’s going to grow 6 feet and catch them ;)


12 Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl June 10, 2013 at 9:45 am

Summertime meals are the absolute best! I really should start making them year round ;).

And seriously, how stinkin’ cute is that cake?? I love it!

That cake is so cute! I would have such a hard time because I wouldn’t want to cut a cake that is so cute….but then again, nothing will stop me from eating a piece of cake!


17 Ashlee@HisnHers June 10, 2013 at 10:03 am

I think my favorite thing about summer is grilling out! So much fun to eat outside and hang out with friends!


18 Amanda @ .running with spoons. June 10, 2013 at 10:06 am

I can’t even handle the cuteness of that cake… and it’s even better when it tastes just as good as it looks! And you’ve just given me the biggest craving for grilled corn on the cob… favorite BBQ food, hands down.

Every time I see this couscous salad it gets higher on my list of “must-makes”! It just looks so darn good! And your plate of food just screams summer to me! So glad it’s getting warmer! I’m so happy you were blessed with many gifts from friends and family! It definitely helps out in the long run! Have a great Monday!

It looks like you and Baby Tooth have been incredibly blessed!! I have a feeling that little boy will be spoiled rotten with lots of LOVE and gifts!!

By the way, I know you are incredibly ready to meet your little guy but I am gonna be a little sad when all the pregnancy recaps end. You have been such a cute preggo and I have so enjoyed following along on your baby journey.

Puhahaha that cake is so cute! I know it sounds funny but I just LOVE baby butts all stuffed up in diapers~just not when they’re stinky of course. And that is exactly how our house looked for a while when everything started coming in (ahem, maybe worse). :P

So excited about all the stuff you got from your shower! I am having mine on the 23 and can’t wait! After the shower I’ll evaluate what we have and what we still need and then go on a shopping spree for what’s left. I feel like my due date is coming so fast and there is so much left to do! Pretty sure nesting is in full gear. :)

I loved getting all the baby items at my baby showers and getting the nursery all set up and filled with a bunch of goodies. Awww the good ol’days. Then they grow up and end up 11 before you can blink.
