my weekend of bliss

Happy Monday, Friends! How were your weekends? Mine was great - everything I had hoped it would be!

On Friday evening, we grabbed Papa John's Pizza and mainly just chilled out as a family. The Husband has been doing a little work around the barn, so we hung out there for awhile and watched him work. The Littles love being around the equipment and of course, the dirt. If you look closely, you can see Little J's toy equipment by the rock pile.

Saturday, we got all gussied up for a wedding. Thanks to my mother-in-law, we were able to leave the boys with her and make it a date for us.

I wore some serious heels (since I wouldn't be chasing or carrying a one year old - I deemed them less of a safety hazard than usual.)

The wedding was beautiful! I've known the bride since she was a little girl. My husband and I worked the church bus route years ago. She came with her friend one day and has been faithful ever since. It blesses my heart to see her all grown up, living for Him, and happily married. Isn't she beautiful?! Congratulations Cortney!

After the yummy reception, we stopped by our local ice cream shoppe and I splurged on some Rocky Road. I haven't had Rocky Road in ages, but someone mentioned it this week at work and I couldn't pass it up. I can promise you it was just as delicious as it looks.

We spent Saturday evening trying to get caught up on NCIS and Scorpion. We weren't very successful and crashed early.

Sunday, the boys actually slept in! I think I logged a full 8 hours and felt like a million bucks. After church, we met family at Cheddar's and enjoyed lunch in honor of my husband's grandfather's birthday. I ate my weight in Chips and Queso and then the New Orleans Pasta. Oh WW, we have got to get back on track Monday...

I am loving the true Fall weather! The trees are so pretty this time of year and it's the kind of temps where we do not need the heat or the air conditioner on. Check out the view on my way into town Saturday morning. I literally stopped in the middle of the road to take this picture.

Lastly, I saw this circulating on my Facebook feed over the weekend. I couldn't help but chuckle. 

Hope you each have a fabulous week!

  11. I love those heels! So glad y'all were able to get out and have an awesome time =) Looks like y'all are getting so major work done around the barn! What are y'all planning on doing with it?!

  12. Ha! I love that cartoon! It sounds like a wonderful weekend, and you really rocked those heels!

  13. What a pretty dress you wore for the wedding! Those heels would definitely be more of a hazard on me, I could see myself falling over...a lot lol! And yes to Papa John's! We had that last week too... so good! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  14. I love your heels! I am the same height as Josh, maybe a smidge taller (don't tell him that though) so when I was younger I never wore heels. Now I don't care and wear them when kid free as well!

    Your picture of the big tractor/machine with the little one by the rock pile is the sweetest thing ever! I love when little ones look up to their dad and mimic what they do!

  15. It does sound like a busy weekend, but fun! Love the look for the wedding. When my son was little (now he's 10), he loved big work equipment. Like obsessed with it. It's so cool that your kids are able to watch their dad use the equipment.
