This weekend was absolutely beautiful. Sunny skies, high temps…all perfect for spending as many minutes as possible poolside. And that’s basically all we did. I can’t remember the last time we spent this much time out at a pool?
I wasn’t really up for a whole lot just yet, and we did pass on a few offers for plans to go out (sorry, friends). My moods are still all over the place (a combination, I’m sure, of hormones being all out of whack and still dealing with emotions), so I just needed to lay low and catch some sun. In the end, that sums up just about our whole weekend, give or take a few things…so here are a few highlights, sentence per picture style because it’s late Sunday night and I’m sleepy.
Pool time started by 10am on Saturday, and we hardly ever left the water.
The little fish joined in after his nap and got daring enough to even jump off the diving board (with us holding his hands, of course).
A late lunch of grilled hot dogs, courtesy of Papa.
And a later dinner of yummy chicken stir-fry, courtesy of Nana (living with parents isn’t so bad, ya know!).
Silly faces from my flip flop stealing, doesn’t want to eat dinner…ever, character of an almost two year old.
Sausage, egg, and cheese biscuits for breakfast…again, courtesy of Papa!
Loves helping his Papa whenever he can…which gives mama a little bit of a break.
A nice little visit from Brian and Mal, spent where else?
They even came with gifts: beer and the most amazing muddy buddies (she saw my request a few weeks ago!). Such a nice gesture from them…we <3 our friend/cousins.
Crackers, pepperoni, and cheese make for fantastic poolside snacks.
More poolside action took place at Grammy and Papa T’s house on Sunday…and I think that’s the last time I’ll say poolside in this post finally.
We got to see Codyyyyyyyy and he’s apparently running the house over there. Less than a month, Codeman and we’re finally stealing you back!
An absolutely delicious dinner of steak, mac salad (x2-3 more, at least), potato salad, steamed asparagus, and corn on the cob.
Followed up with a delicious dessert of angel food cake, strawberries, and whipped topping. Hello, summer.
And now I need to go ahead and close up the container of muddy buddies sitting next to me and get ready for bed.
The weekend was a nice distraction from everything that’s been going on, and I’m not really looking forward to heading back to work where my mind can easily wander. But hopefully things will be busy enough to keep me preoccupied and things will continue to get easier as we go along. <3
I hope all of you guys have a wonderful week ahead, and I’ll catch you tomorrow with a delicious giveaway. So stay tuned!
