You guys, this weekend was really just perfect in so many ways. It was just what I needed. The last few weekends have been pretty busy all around, so it was nice to get caught up on some quality time with my little family and get some other random things done.
Friday evening started out with a date night for Cody and me. We got creative and managed to pull one off with no sitter needed! We grilled bratwurst, sweet potato wedges, and corn on the cob, and had a picnic in the yard since the weather was perfect. We went on a little family walk around the neighborhood, put Hunter to bed, and ended the evening with ice cream and Now You See Me from Redbox (great movie!!). It was so nice to spend some time just us.
On Saturday morning, I completed a workout while Cody went to play basketball with some friends. We also managed to wash both of our vehicles, help our neighbors pack up to move (sad!), and clean up our own house a bit. Then the evening ended with great friends!
Annette and her husband, Jared, came over for dinner, dessert, and some quality hang out time. They brought over Barbacoa (similar to Chipotle) for dinner which was super sweet of them. I had a burrito salad topped chicken, black beans, rice, cheese, sour cream, pico de gallo, and cilantro – delicious!
I made this amazing cookie-brownie dessert too. Check it out – it’s super easy and got two thumbs up by all of us! (Let’s be real, it’s not super photo friendly, but I swear it tasted great!)
Annette and I chatted away about all things pregnancy, babies, food, fitness, blogs, you name it (the pups joined in too)…
…while the boys talked technology and who knows what else.
(Thanks for the photos Annette!)
We always have a blast with these two and are so thankful to have them as friends!
Sunday morning was church where we kicked off a series called The Story. I think it’ll be great, and I’m really looking forward to it.
We also stopped by Verizon to see what I could do in terms of getting a new phone. My other phone has been acting up for awhile. I could barely use it for more than five minutes before it’d shut off on me. Talk about annoying! Plus, it was 3G and after using Cody’s super speedy 4G phone a few times, I was more than ready for something more efficient. I ended up walking out the door with the new Motorola Droid Razr M, and I love, love, love it!
I probably spent just a little too much time personalizing it and having way too much fun with it the rest of the day.
Quality time with Cody and Hunter? Check. Fun times with friends? Check. Getting stuff done around the house? Check. New phone? Check. Relaxation? Check.
Definitely a great weekend all around!
Oh, and for the record, Hunter’s naps are improving big time and my cold is slowly but surely going away. Woot!
Go out there and make it a great day!
