Hello Patriots! I hope you all had a safe and fun holiday weekend. I know I did. I have what I like to call a “busy weekend hangover.” Not to be confused with an actual hangover, this one happens on weekends like these when we’re goinggoinggoing, 24/7 and only at our house to sleep. Ok, maybe there were a few adult beverages thrown in for, you know, social purposes.
Anyhoo, because of said busy weekend hangover I’m going to let the pictures do most of the talking today. Here’s an update on our Life Lately.
Besides the long holiday weekend, another reason I was so blog-quiet last week is because I was super busy preparing to co-host my mother-in-law’s surprise 60th birthday party at our house on Friday! It was the first time we had more than a handful of people (almost 30!!) here at once and I was so nervous, but it went off without a hitch! (Except for that one 20 minute window where it poured rain and everyone had to come inside, but whatever). My MIL has twelve siblings and only a few of them live in our town so I know that the fact that FIVE of them came in for her party sent her over the moon with happiness.
‘Merica. On the 4th our dog allowed us to sleep in until 8:00 (thank you parent’s dog for wearing him out the night before) then Nathan and I went to play some Pickleball at the courts his company built. (Have you all heard of Pickleball? It’s like a scaled-down version of tennis.) If you know me you know organized sports are not really my thing, but I did it for Nathan and it was actually really fun! Then we headed to my mom’s for lunch on her patio and visiting with my aunt and her fiance who were in town. We ended the night with ribs and s’mores (and lots of other delicious food) at my dad’s!
We ended the weekend celebrating our Godson’s first birthday. Holy cow, time flies. I obviously had to get him the largest, most obnoxious gift I could. I also made that adorable chalk board (Yes I’m tooting my own horn – LOOK at that thing!) that was used as decoration at the party.
