Another wild and crazy weekend to share with you!
…have they created that sarcasm font yet?
So wild and crazy might not describe it but nice and relaxing (and dare I say even a little productive?!) fit the bill.
It all started out on Fun Drink Friday. It’s a thing.
The Redemption Ginger Beer (brewed locally in Concord, NC) is the best ginger beer I’ve ever had. It’s worth searching for to drink on it’s own (it’s non-alcoholic, pregnant friends!) and makes a perfect mix for a Kentucky Mule.
We had a couple friends over for an early happy hour on Friday which consisted of 7 Layer Dip and mules.
Doesn’t everyone love when toddlers are able to access the appetizers?
I’m sure she abided by the ‘no double dipping’ rule.
David and I ended up sitting outside late into the evening because it was just so darn nice out. I’m so excited for the warmer weather and longer days.
Saturday we contemplated the farmers market, but instead decided to be responsible adults and tackle our long overdue list of yard chores.
It’s crazy how much you don’t realize you are behind on these things until you do it. Weeding, seeding, cutting, watering, sweating and playing filled up the entire morning and into the early afternoon.
Somehow I survived the pollen, in large thanks to alfalfa, but it still felt good to come in early afternoon and get totally cleaned up with the girls.
While David stayed out, the girls and I took on all the inside chores like laundry, combing through our closets to donate and switch seasons and cleaning the kitchen/living room/etc. We were all exhausted by the evening and were happy to dive into these enchilada rice bowls that had been cooking in the slow cooker all afternoon.
The girls crashed hard and David and I cozied up on the couch to watch Bridge of Spies, which turned out to be a great movie! Tom Hanks is just good. The man can act.
Later that night, while we were all sleeping, the Easter Bunny paid us a visit!
The girls were stoked when they woke up with a note from EB saying he had hid eggs all over the house, but were not so excited for forced pictures. I put the camera away and just tried to commit all the happy faces and excited “Holy Smokes, he hid an egg in the bathroom!” phrases to memory instead of memory card.
Finding eggs was all the rage until Kaitlyn realized they opened.
Then it quickly switched from an egg hunt to an egg opening kind of shindig.
We cleaned up the best we could and headed to church.

We heard a great message on perspective and how it determines your experience. It served as a great reminder to begin each day with gratitude, praise and a positive point of view, as it will be the lens you accept the day’s events through.
So I’m starting this morning grateful for our relaxing weekend and excited about spending the day with the girls. It’s their spring break this week and I’ve been trying to think of fun activities to fill our days. All we’ve come up with so far is making ice cream and Hailey thinks we should go to Target and play with the toys.
…clearly we dream big.
Any fun suggestions?
How was your weekend?!
