Weekend Highlights {6/9}

by Courtney on June 9, 2014

*Edited to add: Apparently I was a little tired when originally typing up the title for today’s post. No, it’s not a fun facts Friday post, unfortunately!

I swear, the weather seriously could not have gotten any nicer this weekend. Two days of bright sunshine and 90 degree weather makes for one happy gal.

And one happy family, for that matter. We spent as much time outside as possible, split between baby pools, water tables, and big people pools. We were home all day Saturday, and outside of some housework and a workout, a good majority of the day was out in the sunshine. Uncle Dan even stopped by for a visit!


Saturday night, my MIL came over to watch the boy and Jay and I headed out for a date night. We started out with an early showing of Neighbors at the movie theater, which was actually the first time we’d been since before Lucas was born.


The movie was funny, nothing spectacular. But there were some pretty funny parts that Jay and I could relate to about being new parents and “growing up.”

After our movie, we hit up one of our favorite restaurants for a couple drinks and some dinner out on the patio.


Beer for him, (way too expensive) sangria for me.


For dinner, I got an insanely enormous (and totally delicious) house chop salad, which came just how I like it…filled to the brim with all sorts of veggies and grilled chicken. Mmm mmm mmmmm.


Sunday morning started with a bit earlier-than-normal wakeup call from Lucas, which was fine since Jay had to get up early to go golfing. Lucas and I hung out for a couple of hours before his nap time, I squeezed in a workout and a couple loads of laundry while he slept, then once he was up, we headed over to my parents’ house for lunch and an afternoon at the pool.


My mom cooked up some burgers and hot dogs, so I opted for a hot dog topped with sautéed onions, along with regular salad and fruit salad.


I also thoroughly enjoyed this blueberry hill lager from Sam Adams.


But most of all, I enjoyed my time in the pool with my little watermelon-eating beach bum.


I really need to find him a new hat and new pool shirt, since pretty much all of his summer photos so far have him in the same exact outfit. Winking smile

So that was our weekend, in a nutshell! A perfect mix of family time, hubby time, and chill time. How about you guys? Did anyone do anything fun and exciting??

When we got home we played got hours outside with Masom on his new swingset. Wait until next year, Lucas will be full of energy & racing around lol

My weekend was very hot, but we tried to spend time outside & in the shade. We had a kid outdoor concert to go to, some park play & hang outside in general time! It was nice to cool off in the air conditioned house though! Lots and lots of baking too!

Ohhh your parents’ pool looks crazy awesome! :D And I need to get started on putting Selah in the water (other than bath water), haha. I guess my lack of swimming background doesn’t allow me to think of it. For me and baby Selah, it was a wonderful weekend as well…I got to have girl time with my friends and one of them was visiting from Korea! It always feels so nice to see them after long periods of time, and Saturday I went to my friend’s wedding and omgsh! Now everyone’s finally getting hitched at exactly around the age I got married in, so it’s pretty cool and weird at the same time.

Little man’s hat is too cute! I love it. I spent some quality time with my sister and girlfriends since the hubs was out of town. I also cleaned out my entire kitchen (thank you nesting instincts) and packed my hospital bag for when little miss decides to make her arrival. EEEEkkkkk!

Gotta love pool weather! I saw Neighbors a few weeks back and thought it would have been a lot funnier if I was a parent.


19 Sarah @ Sarah Sincerely June 9, 2014 at 5:52 pm

Sounds like a wonderful weekend! Your salad looks fabulous – I’m always a fan of chickpeas on a salad. Mmmm! Looks like you and Lucas will have quite the tan by the end of the summer!
