Weekend Highlights, My Favorite Snack, Baking, & Sales {9/1}

by Courtney on September 1, 2014

Hey guys, happy Labor Day! I hope everyone is having a great day, whatever it is you may be doing.

We’ve had a pretty good weekend so far, minus the fact that our teething little guy has been somewhat under the weather. A few highlights from the weekend so far would have to include our Friday night out to the Valley Cats game.


It’s been a while since we last went, and my company had a night out that included tickets to the game and dinner, so I decided to get a couple of tickets for Jay and I to be able to enjoy a night out. SO glad we did!


The weather was perfect, the food was good, and oh, guess who else we just so happened to run in to…


Mom, dad, my brother, and my honorary brother, Scott! Who knew?!

We actually wound up spending a bunch of the night with them, while enjoying a few adult beverages and, of course, my absolute favorite kettle corn.


These guys are just too fun.


Oh, and hey ladies…that handsome stud of a brother of mine up there is single. So ya know, if you’re interested… Winking smile

The game concluded with some fireworks…


And a late night stop at McDonald’s for a dollar cone because I was hungry and I just wanted one.


Other than that, our Labor Day weekend plans were a bit different than normal, thanks to some bad weather and our teething monster. Luckily, baby Tylenol is amazing and has managed to save our sanity at least a little bit so we can still have some fun with the little guy.


His game of choice on Sunday morning was playing with a wad of bubble wrap he found and walking around with it in his shirt.


As if he needs a bigger belly. Winking smile

Oh, and can we just talk about these baby Crocs for a second? How stinkin’ adorable are they?!


Besides all of the above, I also spent some time clearing out my closet and drawers and managed to come up with three full garbage bags full of clothes to either donate or try and sell.


AND I did a little baking in the kitchen…


Be on the lookout for some new recipes headed your way soon! (I know, it’s been WAY too long).

Today we’re hoping to be able to get out with Lucas at least for a little while since we’ve stayed home most of the past two days. But even if we don’t, I’ll most likely be spending some time on the computer shopping some Labor Day sales. There are some serious good ones out there right now! Some faves…

Anyone else doing some shopping this weekend? Or just out having a good time? What’s good, my friends?? Smile

P.S. – The winners of the Amy Dixon & Propel giveaway have been chosen! Check out the giveaway post to see if it was you!

I’m not a big fan of crocs, but I’ll make an exception for baby crocs! ;-)

It looks like you guys had fun at the game. You can’t go wrong with fireworks.

Cleaning out my closet always feels so good. It’s amazing how much stuff you can accumulate without realizing it.

Hi courtney!
Thank you so much for being such a positive and fun role model. I am currently struggling with HA and trying to make myself eat better and decrease exercise. I pray more than anything that I can overcome it like you! Life looks like so much more fun without it! Also, your style is awesome and I wish I lived closer to buy some of your clothes!! I bet they are sooo cute!

Thanks for all you do!!

I was wondering where you go to try and sell your clothes from cleaning out your closet. I just did a huge closet clean-out myself and want to try to sell some and donate the rest but I have no idea where to do that locally (anywhere in the Capital Region is good with me). Thanks!

Any sort of nicer work clothes I have (i.e., Express, Ann Taylor, etc.) I go to Clothes Mentor in Albany. Other casual stuff (i.e., American Eagle, Forever 21, etc.) I bring to Plato’s Closet, which is also in Albany in the same plaza (on Central Ave.). Although I’d recommend calling ahead b/c they can be super selective…I brought a whole bag and they didn’t take ANYTHING!
