Friday night we took it very easy, as the hubs was out of town until after 7, so Madden and I went and grabbed a red box movie, picked up some Greek takeout, came home, ate dinner outside and then went and grabbed some Sonic shakes before heading back home, putting Madden down and settling in to watch the movie ("This is 40")...the hubs of course was zonked out 10 minutes in, so I watched the movie alone while inhaling my peanut butter fudge malt...which was, by the way, heaven!! Highly recommend if you are feeling naughty and want to indulge on something sweet :)
Saturday morning I let the boys sleep in while I headed out for a beautiful early morning run around a nearby lake, followed by some push-ups and tricep dips in our front driveway to start the day. The hubs had to go into work to get caught up from the week, so M and I watched cartoons and played for a bit before we went to the grocery store to grab a few things for the little "shindig" we were having at our house that night.
We had a few friends over for a grill out and on the menu was the following:
- Cheeseburgers and Brats
- Homemade Chex Mix
- My Mom's Corn Salsa
- Sweet Corn on the Cob
- Raspberry Cheesecake Bars
- Aaron's Mom's Famous Strawberry Dessert
I spent the rest of the afternoon slaving away in the kitchen getting things prepped, made and ready for the night, so by the time 5:30 rolled around, I think I sat down once...It was all worth it though, as we spent the night laughing, eating, drinking and playing cards on the deck until the wee hours of the night, enjoying the gorgeous weather and even better company.
Sunday morning we all slept in past 9, which felt amazing. I whipped up some bacon and some "southwestern style scrambled eggs" with peppers, onions, corn and mexi-cheese that we ate outside before it got too hot.
The hubs had to go back into work, so M and I headed to the park for a bit before coming home and taking his bike out around the block a few times...When A got home, and after naptime, we packed up and went to see "Planes" as a family. It was a cute movie, but a little too deep for a 2 year old...he got a little antsy about halfway through, but surprisingly we made it through the whole thing (with only one potty break!)
I wasn't too creative with my dinner plans last night, as we had so many leftovers from the weekend that we just reheated some of those and called it a night. We were all in bed by 8:30 and I felt fantastic when I woke up this morning...This was definitely the relaxing weekend we were needing to recharge ourselves.
What about y'all? Any fun activities this past weekend? Did you take your kiddos to any good movies? Do tell!
Until next time...
