Oh, there was lots of fun stuff happening this weekend, so let’s just hop right to it!
Friday night I left Lucas and Jay home alone for a boys night in while I headed out to meet up with some fellow bloggers for a cookie swap.
There were all sorts of delicious cookies, actually 12 different kinds in all. Everyone brought 3 dozen of their cookie (I brought my favorites), so it worked out that we all got take about 3 of each kind. By the time the swap was over, everyone had quite a stash.
Right now they’re currently sitting on my kitchen counter and I’m trying to decide if I should maybe put them in the freezer. Wanna know a fun fact? If you were to look at my container of cookies right now, you’d see a ton of half eaten cookies. That’s because I usually want more than one kind at once. Ahh well.
On Saturday, the three of us went out to Bombers to meet up with my brother to help him celebrate his birthday (he had to get his enormous birthday margarita, duh)! He turned 26 on Saturday and I officially feel old…it just doesn’t seem possible?!
Lucas did great while we were there (probably due to the fact that we weren’t there super long) and had fun hanging out with his uncle for a while. They were too cute together.
Once we said goodbye to the birthday boy, we headed over to my in-laws’ house for a late lunch. On the menu? Homemade mac and cheese (with chunks of ham – YUM!) and corn muffins. Ohh, how I love me some corn muffins.
Once we got back home Saturday evening, we put the little one to bed and then Jay and I cozied up on the couch with our electric blanket and some homemade brownies and ice cream while watching Love Actually (one of my favorites!).
Sunday morning we woke up to all sorts of…snow! For once, the weathermen were actually right and we wound up with about a foot. I will say…as much as I usually loathe the snow, it is rather pretty right now and definitely putting me in more of a Christmas spirit.
Lucas had fun watching out the window, especially later on in the morning while his daddy was snow blowing the driveway.
Yesterday afternoon, we headed out once again to my parents’ house to celebrate both my brother’s birthday (Saturday) and my dad’s birthday (this coming Tuesday) and just hung out watching the Jets game.
My mom had made homemade sauce so she treated us to meatball subs for dinner,
and, of course, birthday cake and ice cream for dessert. Happy Birthday, Dan & Dad!
Now, I’m sitting here writing up this post after just finishing what seemed like a marathon rocking/bounding session with Mr. Lucas to put him to bed. He was soooo overtired, and whenever that happens, it’s usually a recipe for a struggle at bedtime. I was planning on heading to bed, but now I see that National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is on TV and, well, since it’s one of my favorites I just have to finish watching that. I mean, who doesn’t love that movie, right?!
Happy Monday, friends! Here’s to everyone having a fabulous week ahead!
