Well where did THAT weekend go?! Seriously…wasn’t it just Friday?
We had a great weekend over here – the perfect mix of fun and productivity. But since we decided to tackle a last minute project later on Sunday and it’s late as I’m sitting down to type this up, I’m going to keep things simple with a sentence (or two) per picture post. Nice and easy for your Monday, right?
Jay treated me to the most amazing breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon, toast, and coffee on Saturday morning.
I am one lucky, lucky woman.
Saturday afternoon was spent poolside at my parents’ house, and it was an absolutely beautiful day (yet again…you’ve rocked the weekends this summer, Mother Nature). Sausages on the grill + mixed drinks while Lucas napped.
Then it was play time once the little man was up!
I told myself I wasn’t going to have any sort of fall/pumpkin beers until at least September…but then my parents had their outdoor fridge stocked with Octoberfest and, well, I just had to do it.
At least we waited until we were out of the pool though, right? Octoberfest poolside just seemed all sorts of wrong.
We kept things easy peasy and ordered some pizza for dinner.
Sausage, peppers, and onions is where it’s at…but only if it’s crumbled sausage. Ya feel me?
I started Sunday off with the full, 55 minute BodyPump DVD, and it was fabulous. Came upstairs, looked outside, and saw about 5 HUGE wild turkeys in the backyard.
First deer, now turkeys? Who needs human neighbors…we’ve apparently got a full party happening in our back woods.
I got my grocery shopping for the week finished while Lucas napped, then came home and did some food prep for the week.
Along with a little baking…
It feels just SO good to be back to cooking/baking in my own kitchen again (have I mentioned this before?).
Those turned out to be some pretty sweeeet banana muffins…you guys interested in a recipe??
Dinner was scrumptious, thanks to Kristin’s Vegetable Fajita Tostada Bowls.
And to finish up the weekend, we decided to tackle another painting project in our half bath.
I’m in looooove with the color (Sherwin Williams Storm Cloud) and I’ll be sure to show you the finished project…at some point when it’s actually finished in there.
Now I’m finishing up this post and going to grab a bowl of ice cream that’s waiting for me…that painting is hard work!
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend, and have a wonderful week ahead…umm, hello almost September?!
