How are you guys liking my ridiculously long post titles for Mondays these days? I got bored with always calling them weekend highlights…so, there ya have it.
Hey, Happy Columbus Day! I’m sure many of you probably have today off…alas, I do not…but I hope you all either had a great weekend or are having a fabulous long weekend. While our weekend wasn’t extra long, it was a nice one. Not too many plans, but honestly, there’s hardly going to be a time when I’ll say a weekend isn’t nice because a) it’s two days off from work, and b) it’s extra time spent with my family.
We had a pretty chill, semi-boring Friday night. Ended up grabbing a frozen pizza from our freezer and had that for dinner, along with a couple glasses of wine…which almost instantly had me ready for bed. I’m so old.
Lucas slept in until almost 8:30am on Saturday morning (!!!) so since I knew he wouldn’t be ready for his nap for a while, I took advantage and brought him with me to the Farmers Market.
I didn’t realize that everything was still outside (I haven’t been all year…so sad!) so had I known, I probably would have bundled up both of us better. But luckily we made do with what we had and an extra blanket.
And Cheerios, of course.
I could have bought about 500 other things, but I try to stick with the rule of no credit cards at the Farmers Market. Otherwise, that could lead to trouble with a capital T. Know what I mean??
By the time we got back home, Jay had already mowed and raked the leaves in the front yard (I planned that one well, didn’t I?) so we spent a little time playing in the piles and trying to teach Lucas how to jump in them.
Somehow, I’m the one who ended up in the leaves the most…
He got it.
We were too lazy to do any cooking for dinner on Saturday either so we fed Lucas and then ended up getting some subs from Subway for us, along with a movie from Redbox. We rented Blended, have you guys seen it yet? We both really liked it and chuckled throughout most of it. Cody even hung out and snuggled with us for most of it, too.
On Sunday morning, I had plans to meet up with some of the girls for a surprise 30th birthday breakfast for my friend, Rachel. Her husband Steve arranged the whole thing and she was totally surprised…great job, Steve-o!
I ordered a very veggie omelet with rye toast and home fries, and everything was totally delicious.
Just another reminder that I should really take more time during the week to make eggs. WHY do I not do this?!
The afternoon consisted of picking up our groceries, making Lucas another batch of turkey apple meatballs, and getting a head start on this post (since I always get mad at myself when I wait until Sunday night at like, 9pm, to write the whole thing).
Once Lucas woke up from his nap, we headed over to my in-laws’ house (<—grammar peeps, did I get that apostrophe right?!?) for dinner and to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary. How great is that, right?!
For dinner, we had a delicious beef and butternut stew from the crockpot, along with some rolls and homemade applesauce.
The stew had great flavor and was surprisingly filling.
But, of course, there was still a little room for dessert. Especially when there’s brownies involved.
And that pretty much sums up our weekend! How about you guys? What was going on in your neck of the woods??
