Really I should call all my Monday posts this since they tend to just be a ‘what we did this weekend’ breakdown. Sorry everyone. You’re welcome grandparents. (wink)
August has been our last month that truly feels like summer. The heat, of course, has been something fierce, but we also haven’t had many commitments on the agenda, which has made it feel like those classic summer days that seem to go on and on. This past weekend, however, seemed to mark the end of summer, as things start getting kicked back into gear this week. The girls aren’t back in school yet, like so many are, but our calendar is starting to fill up. No complaints from me though, as it should be a fun next few months!
Because of all of this, we took advantage of this past weekend to just enjoy. It started off Friday with an all day adventure to Discovery Place in Charlotte with our BFFs.
And I mean that quite literally.
Make that double thrilled because our dishwasher broke (again) and a no dishes night was just what the doctor ordered.
Saturday was filled with playing at the park, followed by an afternoon birthday party at a local gym, where Hailey perfected her plank.
If you’ve ever been curious what I look like in bootcamp, well, there it is.
And if you’ve ever been curious what a toddler does when you cut her off at one cupcake, here you go.
That face! (Insert crying/laughing emoji)
Saturday night David I busted out some vino, lit up the grill and met our wonderful new neighbors.
Then we stayed up late drinking said wine and periscoping from David’s account where he has a whopping 1 follower (me). Probably a good thing, as we were well into our bottle of wine before hitting the broadcast button.
Sunday we kicked things up a notch to productive gear. A trip to Barnes and Noble, Whole Foods and Lowe’s set us up for a productive afternoon while giving Hailey plenty of time to master the art of drawing faces while we drove around.
That statement is false. There are still plenty of unorganized cabinets, but I’m making serious progress. I’m on a mission to toss all the little odds and ends and junky toys and make our rooms and spaces more simple.
Of course, as soon as I decided to get rid of STUFF, I also confirmed I needed some powder room decor. After cleaning and vacuuming out the car (which is the most satisfying task), I picked up this flower pot thing that I am still undecided on.
Do you hate that I bought fake flowers?
David say a real orchid will never survive in the powder room because there is no light. Not because of my black thumb.
We ended the night with a satisfying plop onto the couch as we devoured our Mediterranean salmon and kale.
Delicious. While can’t I figure out how to replicate this Whole Foods parchment pack?
And that does it for the weekend!
When does summer feel like it winds down to you?
Though the heat is still here, the kickoff to football just screams fall to me.
Bathroom flowers- input?
