Weekend Replay

Good Monday morning to all of you lovelies out there!  Is it just me, or does the weekend seem to go by faster and faster every week?  Whether we want to admit it or not, a new week has begun and it's time for us to get back after it...But before my week can officially start, let's replay what went down this last weekend!

Friday evening was very relaxed...the hubs was actually home shortly after five (which never, ever happens!) so we took advantage of it by mixing up some cocktails and sitting on the deck while Madden ran around in the backyard.  I, of course poured myself my new fave obsession: Cherry Coke Zero and Root Beer Float Vodka.  Seriously, guys.  I can't express my love for this enough.  Just try it.
A couple of our friends came over shortly after and we sent the guys to grab us dinner. (some delish mexican from our fave taco hut) We played a few hands of cards and called it an early favorite way to start a weekend!

Saturday morning was a 7 mile run outside in the beautiful 65 degree weather, before anyone was even stirring in the house!  I was able to get that run in, have a cup of coffee and catch up on a few of my fave blogs before either of my boys woke up!  This was followed by a morning full of cartoons, cereal and pretend play with this guy:
After a lazy morning and nap time, we all three packed up the car and headed back to our hometown for our niece's 13th birthday party...Madden, of course, ran wild with his cousins while we were able to catch up with the fam, with a bonfire and smore's!
After a late night of not getting home until after midnight, we all slept in until after 9, which was fabulous...Then, as I was laying in bed waiting for everyone to wake, I was perusing IG and saw a picture that Darci from The Good Life Blog had posted which included coffee and donuts, (in beautiful Darci fashion it looked too pretty to eat) and I immediately turn to the hubs and said: "I need coffee and donuts."  And that led to this:
This was followed up with a two hour long family walk (to burn off said donuts)  and a trip to the park to burn off some more energy before nap time!  We then headed over to a couple of our friends' house for homemade pizza, caprese, and I brought this greek simple, and so yummy!
We headed home a little later than planned, which led to a meltdown in the bathtub and a screaming toddler from his bedroom for over a half hour...when he finally decided to give in and fall asleep!

This morning was crazy as we had to get back into the swing of things with Madden starting his first day of preschool!  He was overly excited about it and actually let me get a few quick shots with his backpack on the front steps...and yes, I will be that Mom that continues to take a first day of school picture until he's 18...I just can't help it!
Whew!!  What a weekend!  Nothing too crazy, but it definitely flew by!  Can't wait to get this week started...I have a feeling it's going to be a good one ;)

Until next time...

  7. So I have a plan to try this Cherry Coke and Rootbeer Vodka on August 17th. Your little is super cute.

    Now I am craving a Starbucks Cold Caramel Coffee concoction of some sort. Grrr- I was doing so good at avoiding that place on my first days of work.

  8. What a fun, fun weekend!!! You have me totally craving a doughnut now!
