I Love Fall Weekends

The weekend's weather was unbelievably beautiful for November. Friday, the girls and I rode with the windows down and went jean shopping for me. It.Did.Not.Go.Well. I was reminded that just because I've lost five pounds, I still have a ways to go. I walked out empty handed (2 days in a row). I have been trying to decide (stalling) about what's the best way to get back to exercising business now that I have two children...I am all or nothing:/
Anyway, Friday afternoon, we had a picnic outside followed by Ava's schoolwork. It was really fun. Right as we were wrapping up our lessons, our neighbors came outside to play. Then, Shannon dropped something off for me, and her girls stayed to play while she ran errands. We had about ten kiddos running around having a blast. Just when I knew I was going to have to break up the fun to start dinner, Ron called and said the words I love to hear, "Let's grill tonight." Grilling has always been one of our favorite things to do, but since moving in three months ago we haven't grilled at all. We sat outside on the patio with the firepit blazing while Ron cooked the best filet ever. I just sat there feeling so thankful. There's no where else I'd rather be.
Saturday was a whirlwind of fun too. The girls and I had to be at church before 7 A.M. to set up my Rodan + Fields table for our indoor yard sale/direct sales event. After that, we walked through my parents' new house to see the  progress; they're hoping to move in next month. Next was lunch with Meg & Gaines! I haven't seen them in a while, and it was so good to catch up. We also went to some gift shops in Senatobia-- the kind of places where I could spend a fortune! And the next stop on our agenda was to Jilly's first birthday party! It was so cute with the owl theme.
After church on Sunday, we all crashed for a nap. Ava wanted pancakes for supper so we went to Cracker Barrel. And we crashed again at 8:30. I love weekends with my family & friends!

I lived with Carly & Jeanine my sophmore year, and here are our girls: Maggie, Jilly, Ava, & Addison.

I worked on this some more while Ava rode her bike; stained the top & did another coat of milk paint.

  1. Fun weekend! Getting to do school outside is so fun!

  2. Sounds just perfect! Love your sweet girls, that cute quilt, and the dresser is looking good!

  3. Did you know those bumpy seats were recalled, think you can get your money back or some sort of repair kit


I love reading comments! Thanks:)
