Hey friends, I'm back!! We had such a wonderful vacation and I can't tell you how nice it was to take a blogging break. But I've definitely missed this little space. I need to catch up on reading my favorite blogs as well. I'm working on a full recap of our trip, it was so much fun! But for now I'm sharing with you our weekend, which was super low key but much needed after being gone for 10 days.

Over the weekend....

* My boys went to camp on Friday so that I could do all the things after being gone for 10 days.

* Patrick and I snuck away for a date night (which I didn't take any pictures of)

* the boys sat like this for 30 minutes saturday morning watching a movie. It's a miracle!

* I treated myself to a manicure and pedicure Saturday morning. Something that I don't ever do at the same time, but after being gone for 10 days a break from my children and some pampering was in order!

* Patrick worked Saturday so while I had a sitter we decided to have a kid free lunch. Something that never happens!

* Jack and I went and spent a bit of time visiting my in-laws Saturday late afternoon.

* We ordered pizza with our friends and enjoyed a Saturday night at home.

* I baked Annie's chocolate chip banana bread (but turned mine into muffins) Sunday morning.

* Sunday morning all four of us went over to my inlaws and spent through lunch over there. My MIL is extremely weak from treatments and we are trying to spend as much time as we can with them. The boys had fun playing with their grandaddy, which was just as much fun for him as it was for them!

This photo right here is what it's all about. Graham walked right in, we laid him on her lap and he just laid there for several minutes. Knowing Grhaammy you know he doesn't sit still for long. He just knew she needed some extra snuggles, and I think he needed them too! 

* Jack and I went for a bike ride around the neighborhood, well he rode and I walked. He's getting so grown up! I couldn't believe that he rode all the way down our street to the golf course and then back through the cart path to our house. I fully expected him to stop and walk about two houses away from ours haha.

* I continued binge watching Revenge. Have ya'll seen this? I have already seen all 4 seasons entirely but have decided to start them over. I am currently in the middle of the second season and I can't get enough. It helps that there is absolutely nothing on tv in the summer!

There is our weekend in a nutshell. Sorry for the total lack of photos. I took so many while we were gone I think I just decided to put my phone down for a bit this weekend! It was nothing special but a few moments away with Patrick were just what we needed. What did you do fun?

  1. Low-key weekends (especially after a vacation!) are THE BEST. That picture of Graham and your mother-in-law is just precious. So glad you got to get away for some alone time and pampering!!!

  2. Sounds like the perfect post vacation weekend. I am sure it was really nice to have the weekend to ease you back into being home too. I hate getting home on Sundays.

  3. So glad you and Patrick got to sneak away for some time alone! And I'm glad you treated yourself to a mani and pedi! I hope you have a great Monday!

  4. That's awesome you and Patrick were able to squeeze in time for just the two of you together! And how sweet is Graham??? Glad you had a nice week to ease back into reality!

  5. B and I are watching Bloodline right now and we're almost done with it. I was just telling him last night that we needed to figure out what to watch next... maybe I'll check out Revenge!

  6. I loved loved loved Revenge! I was always Team Jack.

  7. I haven't seen Revenge yet. I will add it to my list. I love the photo of Graham and your MIL. So precious. I hope she is doing ok. Having a weekend without your phone is a good weekend. I can't wait for the vacation recaps.

  8. I love vacation but it is always so nice to come home. I bet you had SO much to do to get back in the swing of things... laundry, groceries, everything!! Praying for your MIL and gosh that picture just warms my heart <3

  9. Low key weekends are the best! Graham is so sweet laying on your MiL. So sweet! Glad you got a date night with your hubby. That's always the best!
