Weekend Notes

Weekend Notes: 4th Of July


I know it's Tuesday but before anymore days get away from me I wanted to put up a little post about our weekend. On Friday the kids and I went to the grocery store and picked up a few things. Thankfully this time Aria did not have a major blow-out causing us to go home instead of shopping (that happened Wednesday). We picked up a few things and caused quite a scene as Peter "followed" me in his little cart and begged for some random cheese he had grabbed. Yeah it was quite a sight. In all the chaos I managed to grab some flowers. TJ's called it a patriotic bouquet but it was totally red, white, and purple.

On Saturday morning Andrew took the boys over to his parents house to move some furniture. Aria took a gloriously long nap so I got to just enjoy the morning to myself. I even was able to paint my nails. Nothing short of a miracle.

Once Andrew and the boys were home we got ready to go over to my parents house for some fourth of July festivities. I poured myself a little bubbly to enjoy with some appetizers before leaving the house.

Once we got to my parents we enjoyed delicious bbq courtesy of my Dad and then followed it up with a swim in their pool. We waited an hour calm down.


He's ok I guess.

It really doesn't get any cuter. It really doesn't.

Later in the evening one of my younger brothers dug out some sparklers from the back closet. Pretty sure they were leftovers from our wedding but they didn't explode and we had a good time.

Sunday morning was nice and slow. I got up and made some coffee and planned out the week. PLUS put my first few clients in the calendar! Crazy pants. Thanks you so much for supporting Little Flower Studios!

Slow Mornings

After church we went out to eat with my grandparents. I ordered a "Cucumber Fresco" and it turned out to basically be a glass of tequila with cucumber slices. I drank it anyway. Didn't want to waste.


Then we were home and watching the monsoons roll in!

It was a really lovely weekend. I am so thankful for my family and this incredible country. America is not without fault but I can't imagine living anywhere else. I hope you all had a lovely weekend too!


P.S. The giveaway for a free Arbonne lipstick is still going!
