It’s amazing what a little nice weather will do for the soul. That, combined with some good fun with friends and delicious food, makes for one heck of a weekend. As I’m sitting down to type this on Sunday evening…and this is probably one of the first times I’ve really sat all day…I’m feeling pretty pooped. Plus, I need to have this finished by 9pm because Secrets and Lies is coming on and I. Can’t. Wait.
So for today’s post, I’m going to keep things simple with one sentence per picture…
Friday night spent painting my nails, sipping wine, and watching TV curled up under a blanket was everything I could have asked for.
An impromptu kiddo and adult play date with Kanika, Shaheen, and Kaura made for a fantastic Saturday afternoon and evening.
These two are gonna be best buds, whether they realize it yet or not…and Lucas is wearing PJ pants because we had a little blueberry explosion on the other pants.
Crackers with mascarpone cheese topped with fig jam is seriously THE JAM.
Having friends who agree that takeout Italian for dinner is never a bad thing is always a good thing.
I will heart chicken parm and eggplant parm for every and always.
The adults had fun breaking out old some old school Mario Kart, but I quickly discovered how BAD I’ve become at that game.
Then again…trying to play Mario Kart with a view like this and having someone trying to snag your steering wheel can make things rather difficult, I suppose.
Sunday morning started with homemade pancakes courtesy of Jay, and they were exactly the way I wanted to start my day.
Sunday was THE most beautiful day we’d had around here in probably 6 months.
As promised, we got outside late in the morning to play, and were outside for the majority of the day right up until dinner time.
Lucas got so big over the winter that we had to take the floor out from the bottom of his car so he could fit.
We took all the patio furniture out from the shed and enjoyed a nice lunch outside.
And while Lucas napped, mommy spent the entire time hanging out on the back deck and ended up getting a little sunburned. Oops.
After Lucas’s nap, we promptly packed into the car and headed out for our first cone of the season from The Snowman!
Orange and vanilla twist with rainbow sprinkles for me and Jay…and a little orange and vanilla twist in a dish for Lucas.
He tried acting like he didn’t want the ice cream at first, but as soon as he finally took a taste, there was no stopping him. He housed it, just like his mama.
After getting our ice cream, we stopped at the park and I swear, if I pushed a swing once, I pushed it 1,000 times yesterday.
And slides are now definitely a new favorite “thing” this year.
When we got home from the park, it was more time spent outside, and Lucas loved trying to “help” Jay wash the cars.
And then, eventually, it was dinner time.
BLAT’s with sweet potato fries…which, if you’ve been checking out our weekly meal plans, you’ve probably noticed that these are basically a weekly thing for us lately. Can’t get enough of ‘em!
Wooo Hooo! Time is 8:58…finished just in time for my show, baby!
So I’m gonna jet, but I hope you guys all had a wonderful weekend and have a great week ahead! Did you guys have anything fun happening?
