Friday morning started off with an 8 a.m. pep rally. Yes ma'am. 8 a.m.
Drumline, cheering, all of it :) My trusty assistant came through and by 8:30 I was ready to teach six classes . Amen.
After dinner Mason wanted to fill all these cups with soapy water from the sink. He has DEFINITE ideas about what he wants to do and when it involves soap and water I typically agree.
This girl was cracking me up on Friday night. She KNOWS that she is not supposed to climb up on the fireplace.... so as soon as I'm not looking she does it anyway. Then just sits there and stares at me until I notice. #sass #andahalf
Sidenote: a lot of people on IG commented on how they thought she looked JUST like Mason in this pic.... I don't see it at all! So funny :)
Saturday morning we got up, fed, dressed and the kids got ready to go to the library with Dave. I'm pretty sure she was thinking, "Oh! Brand new outfit, mom??? Let me just rub my hiney up against your dirty tire, k???" :) hahaha
I think this might be my favorite outfit. Ever. I love love love it!
(In case you're curious - the pants are HERE and the top is HERE and I'll have a show open again on October 1st! I think that THIS SHIRT would be adorable layered underneath for cooler weather).
On Saturday mornings Dave will often take the kids to Home Depot or the Library while I do some of the "heavier" cleaning. I do little bits every day - but it is so much easier to mop the floors without 4 extra pairs of feet running around :) Plus - they get some great three-on-one time with Dave!
Apparently GG was in HEAVEN at the library - my kind of girl :)
Saturday afternoon my parents dog, Scooter, came to hang with us. My mom is in Canada for a couple of weeks and my Dad was gone for the weekend - so we added him in to the mix. GG LOOOOOOOVES her some Scooter and pretty much just follows him around.
Monkey see. Monkey do.
After lunch the boys played outside and when I looked out there - poor Scooter Pooter was covered in sand. Apparently they were playing a game which involved pouring copious amounts of sand and water on this sweet little guy. I scooped him up and brought him inside for a thorough shampooing.
.... and a towel dry. I texted my dad and told him that I wasn't sure if he never wanted to leave or never wanted to come back. It was a 50/50 kind of situation. :)
... and then I set out to make zucchini bread. Except that I realized my zucchinis were in fact cucumbers. OOOPS! I ended up making chocolate chip pumpkin bread instead and Dave rescued me and picked up and brought home a few zucchinis in between weddings at the club. Crisis averted.
Saturday night I saw this and I almost peed my pants....
... then I realized that it was for England and not here. WAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!! January can't come fast enough!!!
Also - while I was getting dinner ready I ran do the laundry room to toss some dish towels in the washer and came back to this...
Sunday morning I woke up with a migraine (blah!), Dave hadn't gotten home until 2:00 a.m. (thank you, late wedding!) and Mason and G were having some tummy trouble so we decided to play it safe and just hung out at home for the morning . I attempted to play catch up on some Slightly ASkew projects and was watching the Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story and wasn't sure whether to be excited or mortified that AC Slater was wearing my EXACT same denim vest. Seriously. I'm pretty sure it's my exact one. hahaha
And Mason crashed before 6:00. Seriously. I attempted to wake him up for dinner - but he was GONE. Sweet boy :)
It was a low key, hang around the house kind of weekend - perfect!!! This week is a four-day work week for me (we have State Fair Day on Friday) and I have big plans to get my Halloween decorations out! YAY!!!
Happy Monday, Friends!!!
