I feel like I come here every Monday saying Oh what a great weekend! buuuuut yeah, another good one, though quite quiet. Friday was rainy and a perfect night for a movie. At your suggestions, I was set on watching About Time and figured we’d splurge and rent it through Roku for $3. However, when we saw it was $12, I had to pass (until I make a trip to our video store!) and settled on Noah. Eh. Still, it was a relaxing night on the couch.
Good thing too, because Saturday we sat out for a rare adventure for us—the mall. I don’t shop. David doesn’t shop. Therefore we both were in serious need of new shoes and a few staples, so we loaded up the girls and went for it.
It was quite a day. I nursed in dressing rooms, did laps so Kaitlyn could fall asleep and surrendered my kindle to the greater good of our mission. By the end, we were all exhausted and so we stretched out on the mattresses in Macy’s while Kaitlyn finished her nap.
FYI- Tempurpedics for the win.
In the end, it was all incredibly worth it. After organizing my closet and pulling out all that was maternity, I realized I really didn’t have much to work with so I’m so pumped for the fall fashion challenge and my new basics!
I’m also pretty excited about those that signed up with me. Are you ready?! I can’t wait to share some of the looks and help each other out because I’m still not quite sure if I can pull off boyfriend jeans.
After shopping, we dove head first into this plate of jalapenos… er, I mean nachos.
Then set up for football watching on the couch after the girls went down. There were some pretty great games to watch if you’re a college football fan- Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Alabama?!
Sunday I was ready to stick around the house.
Hailey made us breakfast, then she helped David cut the grass while I took Kaitlyn shopping. Food prep and other typical household to-dos followed. I made a big batch of vegetable soup for lunches and a Bolognese sauce for dinner.
I did my best to resist turning on the heat, so we wore hats instead.
Goodness help me when it actually gets cold out.
The stars aligned and I was able to work in a run with Koda. 3.7 miles felt relatively easy in the crisp 60 degree fall air.
And by relatively I mean that I huffed and puffed but didn’t fall down. Isn’t it odd how running can be so hard one day and feel so effortless then next?
We ended the weekend with spaghetti squash and between the cooler temps and all the squash I bought, I’m finally ready to pull out our fall décor.
Because fall certainly has arrived.
And that’s it! About as basic of a weekend as you can get, right?
Which weekends do you prefer- wild and crazy or low key?
