Weekend Notes

IMG_8987.jpg

All three kids are sleeping and it is HEAVENLY. They all went down for a nap without much resistance so now I'm making the most of this precious time to bring you my Weekend Notes! First let me say that this morning was not easy. It totally kicked our butts. I got out of bed feeling like I had been hit by a truck. I let Peter and James play outside for a little bit before it got too hot but that didn't stop them from destroying the house in record time.

I'm sharing these photos to remind you that even though I take pretty pictures and everything looks nicely put together....I'm always pushing the mess out of the way. So yeah, just a reminder.

Anyway, I think when you have a tough Monday it's a good indicator of how your weekend went and ours was a blast! Even though Andrew was at the UofA working security for Steubenville West most of the weekend, we made the most of it!

On Friday I dropped the boys off at my parents house and ran some errands. Did a little Goodwill hunting and hit up Target for diapers (shocking).

At Target I snagged these little chalkboard signs for the Blessed Is She brunch I'm hosting in August! Love love love that little dollar section they have. So many good finds.

Then in the evening we ordered pizza, I enjoyed a cold beer, and we watched Toy Story. It was a quiet and pleasant evening. Considering it was 3 against 1.

The next morning we were up and headed down to campus to visit Andrew. But first caffeine.

//

The boys lost their minds getting to ride in Daddy's golf cart. It was adorable. They would say "Whoaaaa whoaaaa whoaaaa" with every turn. Also. LOOK AT THOSE THIGH ROLLS ON ARIA. #adorbs

//

//

Then I took a picture of my feet because I mean look at this floor. It was like saying "Instagram me!" So I did.

//

We grabbed lunch on campus with some good friends. Kate and I toasted to the fact the we were not at Edel but plan on being there in 2017. Ready or not here we comeeee!!!

//

The kids and I then said goodbye to Andrew and headed home. The boys weren't exhausted at all.

//

On Sunday we were up early and off to Latin Mass with my family. For the record...it was just me getting them ready to go and we arrived 5 minutes early. I'm mean, I'm not going to name any names but we moved surprisingly quick for missing a certain member of the family.....Just sayin'.

//

They boys were surprisingly well behaved and therefore earned a Mickey mouse pancake for breakfast. Brunch after Mass is one of my most favorite things on the whole wide world. For reals.

//

After brunch the kids and I had planned on visiting Andrew again but James dumped orange juice on his lap so plans changed pretty quick. Once we were home the boys were stripped down to their diapers because it was 111 yesterday and our house was a furnace! So no pants was really the only option. I caught up on some of my favorite podcasts and paid bills (boooooooo). Then in the evening Andrew was home and we just relaxed and enjoyed time outside (once it was down to 90 brrrrrrr).

It was a wonderful summer weekend and I hope you all had the same!
