Before I can recap the weekend... I HAVE to tell you to go check out Sheaffer's blog today. Y'all know I love me some "Pinterest Told Me To" and I've learned over the last couple of years to just listen and buy whatever she tells me to when she tells me to. When I don't immediately listen I end up buying said item weeks later and then regretting that I didn't have it sooner. She has THE BEST recommendations and she totally puts all the legwork into shopping so the rest of us can just sit at home and order online :)
She has an awesome new collaboration going on this month and YOU HAVE TO CHECK IT OUT!!! (there MAY be a 20% coupon code AND a $100 giveaway as well!)
Weekends for me start the MINUTE I get out of my Friday afternoon staff meeting. This past Friday I was super excited to see Griffin since I had picked out her adorable little outfit the night before, but hadn't seen her in it yet :)
The boys IMMEDIATELY started building stuff (trains, Legos, etc.), so Griffin and I changed into our comfies and got started on the laundry.
I knew the weekend was going to be great, when about 10 minutes after Dave went back to work for the night Mason dumped an entire box of baking soda into the toilet and I caught him eating an unknown number of cheese cubes... twice.
Saturday morning, the boys were up (and in our bed) by 6:30 a.m. After breakfast, Mason wanted me to make him a "ninja headband" out of this spool of ribbon... with the spool attached.
The boys ran some errands, while I worked on the computer and Griffin took a nap. She wakes up happy every. single. time.
The boys headed out to the backyard to play(they were out there ALL DAY!) and Griffin and I got dressed and read o run a couple of errands of our own.
She and I headed to Sprouts for a produce run and she was a HAM! She waved and screeched at anyone who would look and/or listen :)
Dave went to work, Mason and Griffin went down for naps and Luke was busy with Legos... time for a 'working lunch' for me :)
A great part of Saturdays for me are pre-and post nap outfits :) Griffin woke up and it was on to outfit number 2...
He usually wakes up G.R.U.M.P.Y and so I'm pretty "open" to whatever will make him happy. On this afternoon it was sitting on the counter, wearing m sunglasses, eating an apple and drinking lemonade out of his special straw :)
Sunday morning Erika and I took our photo challenge #shoe pic with a sweet little girl in our Sunday School class. Shay and I have taught sunday school together for YEARS and have been blessed with an EXTRA sweet group of kiddos this year. Shay wasn't able to be there yesterday, so Erika filled in. :)
Ignore the dead plant and garden gnome (it's a running joke between my mom and I) and focus on the cute baby :)
... she did NOT want her feet to touch the ground :)
While we were taking pics, this kid was napping in the car :)
After lunch and playtime, I was folding laundry while these two decided to "watch" Monster's Inc.
... and in the theme of "keeping it real" here's the wide shot. Messy nightstands (yes... that's a nativity), laundry on the floor, etc.
He was TERRIFIED to drop... but he did it!!! :)
Mason got super cold at this poing and so I stuck him in my sweatshirt :)
This weekend was kind of a whilrwind. We had great weather and I caught a bit of Spring Fever. We have lots of fun things coming up this week and I can't wait! :)
