Weekend Recap!

Good Morning,

Two days in a row.. I know, I know.. basically unheard of lately but lets just run with it OK? This fall like weather is giving me life and thank the lord for that because I haven't slept in days! You know how it goes, every once in awhile my body says a big screw you and absolutely cannot sleep so I spend my nights tossing and turning, sitting on the couch all night watching TV and then eventually it goes away... here's to hoping that happens sooner than later!

Anyways I thought I would come by and recap our weekend, as I said before sometimes I know its not really all that interesting to you to know what we did all weekend and trust me that's fair, I totally get it.. we are not all that interesting but a lot of times I think it will be nice to read back years from now and have a memory book so to speak. In fact I have been looking into printing my blog like into a book, just for me to have... just a though.

But back to our weekend. I feel like I am drawing a blank on what we did on Friday. Jason got off work early as he does on Fridays.. we had dinner and I think we went out and did some running around, we must have. Ok so Friday didn't really mean much!

Saturday they were calling for rain but Jason and Dave planned to go golfing and I planned to go over and see Lindsey and the kids as I hadn't seen them at all last week. With all the plans in the air and getting together we figured we would have dinner together as well. Believe it or not it rained, I know I said they were calling for it but that generally means nothing so when it actually poured rain I was a little shocked. Jason and Dave went golfing in the morning anyways and drove together so I had the truck and planned to go about my plans as they were figuring Jason would be home a lot earlier than expected though. I was right. Jason got home early so we did a few things and than headed over to Dave and Lindsey's!

It rained on and off all day but we made it work! Dave and Jason are building a deck at Dave and Lindsey's rental house so they worked on that. We had a great dinner and then Jason and Dave decided to play football with the neighbors kids. The neighbors have two boys and a girl and the kids father is in the Air Force so he's not around a lot and the boys LOVE the attention Dave and Jason give them. The littlest boy is SO DARN CUTE, I literally want to take him home! He is so sweet and polite and such a joy to be around, so when they decided to play football he politely asked Jason to be on his team.. but then his game face came on! I sat on the side lines hysterical!

Dave was trying to instill better sportsmanship into the older one and the younger one was running around yelling out calls and falling into the ground waiting for Jason or Dave to come around and help him to his feet haha. At one point Stallion (the little one) looks at Jason straight in the face and says "WHEN I TELL YOU TO HIT, HIT IT!!!" I was seriously dying of laughter, I don't even think Jason knew what to say to him or how to respond! Then Stallion wanted to be the one to throw to Jason when they had to the ball, so he's standing there with the ball and Jason is running in circles while Dave and the kids brother is chasing him.. so the three of them are running in circles and every time Jason passes Stallion he's telling him to throw him the ball and Stallion is telling Jason to get back further.. they must have ran in circles for a good five minutes.. I was crying I was laughing so hard!! By the end of the game Jason and Dave were feeling like they weren't teenagers anymore, sweating up a storm.. I don't even know who won and I don't think it mattered, everyone had such a good time.. including me on the sidelines watching!

After that we went home, it was time for the girls to go to bed and the neighbors to go home. We came home and watched a special on the Patriots we had taped the night before, it was an amazing insight into the team and hard work that goes into their dynasty, totally worth watching!

Sunday morning we got up and went to have breakfast at Einstein Bagels, Dave introduced me to it while Lindsey was in the hospital after having Colton ad I have been thinking about it ever since. I'm not big on breakfast and never really care to go out for it but a bagel and cream cheese is a really nice treat. I swear there is something about a fresh bagel and this amazing cream cheese. They basically have every flavor and I cant say enough good things about them. We got bagels and coffees and Jason had his first pumpkin muffin with cream cheese frosting, he was thoroughly impressed.

After that we headed back to Dave and Lindsey's so the guys could work on the deck. Did I mention the weather was absolutely AMAZING on Sunday? It was the first taste of fall and I couldn't have loved it any more! We basically spent the whole day outside all of us in the backyard enjoying the amazing weather.. it was perfect! Baby Colton also got a nice taste of fall like weather and I would say he was a fan...

I am so in love with this babe, he is the tiniest, sweetest thing ever! He literally slept in my arms outside for what seemed like forever, he was really enjoying the fresh air. I could seriously snuggle him all day and it would never get old. 

While Colton was snoozing and Lindsey and I were enjoying the sun the girls were "helping" Jason and Dave with the deck! 

As you can see Lily was the biggest help of all, HAHA! At one point I looked over and she was on Jason's back and had a hold of his ears like she was holding on for dear life, it was hysterical. Jason is such a good sport though he absolutely loves the girls and when he wasn't doing something with the deck he was chasing the girls around the back yard, carrying them around on his shoulders or helping them be gymnasts on the piles of wood in the backyard! 

We had a great afternoon and by the time we left it was too late to cook a big ham for dinner like we had planned but that was totally fine with me, I don't care for a big dinner anyways and because we didn't have time we had sandwiches and salad which is way more my thing! We spent the rest of the night watching football.. it was a really good first week! The Patriots won on Thursday.. best way to start and I won the pool this week! 

Did you all watch the Cowboys vs. Giants game? If not you seriously missed out, poor Dez Bryant though, that is definitely going to hurt the Cowboys! 

So that was our weekend, the weather this week is suppose to be in the low 80s, still not fall weather but cooler than it has been so I will take it! 

I hope you all had a great weekend and are having a great week! Thank you as always for stopping by!

  1. You had WAAAYYY better weather on the weekend than we did! It rained the entire two days. Sunday we actually had to put the HEAT ON. The house was so cold! It's been beautiful this week and promises to stay that way, so I guess Sunday was just a warning that winter is, indeed, coming.

  2. I wont lie Cathy the idea of wearing a heavy sweater and turning on the heat sounds amazing to me! We have had such a hot humid summer I have felt really over it for the last few weeks! I am however grateful for the small drop in temperature! We sat outside pretty much all day on Sunday and it was absolutely GLORIOUS! I hope you guys get real fall weather soon, I hope we do too!
