Weekend Highlights {11/11}

by Courtney on November 11, 2013

Hey guys! I’m baaaaack! Although it may just be a quick little summary of my weekend, I still had to pop in and say hi to you all. Hope you all had a great weekend! And here’s a little bit of what was happening over here in our neck of the woods…

Saturday morning Kodiak Cakes, of course, filled with banana slices and mini chocolate chips. YUM.

Saturday afternoon visit from mom and dad.

Saturday evening spent with our good friends Joe & Kate.

Saturday night dinner of BBQ Pulled Chicken and sweet potato fries.

Smiles and lots of fun with Mr. Lucas, who turned a whole 15 weeks old this weekend.

(I think this one here may be one of my new favorite photos of him)

Lucas 11-10

And want to know a fun fact?? It was exactly one year ago today when we first discovered I was pregnant with this sweet little boy.

Sunday afternoon spent celebrating at Kate’s baby shower.

And being able to catch up with good friends.

A glass of my favorite beer while over visiting at my brother’s house.

Sunday evening dinner made by my brother himself (never thought I’d see that day!)

And an evening spent with Dan and Meg…even if it was cut somewhat short since a certain little boy was not in the best of moods.

So there’s a quick little sum up of our Saturday and Sunday! Of course, I know I still need to fill you all in on some details from our trip to NYC on Thursday-Friday…

I’ll get to that later this week when I have a little more time at the computer to write a post up! Smile
