David and I like being home. Not literally sitting at home, but being in town for a weekend makes it feel long, luxurious and relaxing. This weekend was one such weekend, and looking back on it, I realize it was probably a perfect caricature of what people must imagine the south to be like.
Beautiful fall leaves and all.
It worked out well that David worked Saturday morning because I got the laundry, meal planning and grocery shopping checked off the list.
Sunday- Homemade pizza
Monday- Pioneer Woman lasagna and salad
Tuesday- Sweet potato chili
Wednesday- Burrito bowls
Thursday- Loaded baked potatoes with broccoli
Apparently I was focused on comfort foods this week. I’m psyched!
Saturday afternoon we went shopping.
The smile totally takes away from any intimidation I had going.
After browsing and educating ourselves, we ended up with the BB variety and practiced our shots during nap time.
Don’t try breaking into my house
Sunday morning I woke up to a husband who had already cut the grass and was getting to work on waffles. I didn’t think I could love him any more than I did… I was wrong.
We followed up breakfast with a trip to Lake Norman State Park.
Those leaves!! It was ideal fall weather and we all enjoyed a leisurely 3 mile hike. Well, leisurely for us, not so much for Koda.
We couldn’t bring ourselves to spend time indoors, so we spent the afternoon in the yard, rolling in the leaves.
Pure joy, despite those pesky molars that are taking their sweet time coming in.
When the sun finally set, I decided to try my hand at crocheting. Scarves for everybody for Christmas!
…I’m totally kidding. I’m terrible. Can someone please teach me how to crochet? The book is incredibly confusing.
Finally Hailey went to bed and David and I curled up with pizza and a movie. Which is pretty much the perfect end to a weekend.
And the perfect way to start the week? With an early morning #operationskinnydog! (Side note: I’ve stuck with it every day so far and Koda is looking better already!) We have a pretty busy day ahead, so Koda and I got out early. No excuses, my friends!
And now it’s Monday. Lather, rinse and repeat!
Do you knit, crochet or sew?
How did you learn?
