Weekend Snaps and Naps

by Brittany on July 21, 2014

Did everyone have a great weekend??

My dad came to visit us this weekend.  It is amazing how helpful an extra set of hands are with the little man!

Friday, I had lunch with Clare at Meridian Cafe.

After lunch, Baby D and I joined up with Luvy.  Baby D obviously wasn’t too impressed with what we had going on.

Saturday, Papaw showed up, and Baby D was ready to play!

He loves his papaw!  I completely understand why!  :)

Daddy took Luvy and I out to Simply Thai for our birthdays.

Luvy and I shared the Green Curry and a new to us dish, Mango Salmon.

That salmon is to die for!  I couldn’t believe we hadn’t had it before.  It is hands down my favorite thing on the menu!  My only complaint was that the piece of salmon was quite small.

On our drive, Baby D was killing “Hoo” the owl.  Poor owl’s legs aren’t going to last long!

Baby D had his 6 month pictures this weekend!  Can you believe he is 6 months???

Guess what… he fell asleep during them!  This boy was a sleepy head this weekend.

He plays hard and crashes harder!

I’m off to enjoy my dad for a little while longer before he goes back to Tennessee!

The weekend goes too fast when family is here.

Make sure you come back tomorrow… I have a new fun series starting plus an AWESOME giveaway for y’all!

I hope you all have a Marvelous Monday!

Tell me… how was your weekend?

Thank y’all so much for all your birthday wishes yesterday! It was such a great day! In case you all haven’t noticed, Baby D has 2 teeth! He cut the first one the day after he turned 5 months old, and the second one came in the next day. He wasn’t really that fussy before […]

Today is my last day being 28. Last year, my birthday hit me really hard.  It was my first birthday in my “late twenties”.  Now, I’m headed straight into my last year in my twenties. It feels like just yesterday I was graduating college and getting married at the ripe age of 22. I thought […]

Did everyone have a good weekend? I hope yours was much less snotty than mine!  Our weekend plans changed quite a bit as the weekend unfolded. Poor Baby D is dealing with congestion, stuffy nose, sneezing, snotting, and not feeling so well. I hate seeing my sweet baby feeling crummy. It is all a part […]

TGIF! Aren’t y’all so happy it’s Friday?? 1. We combed Baby D’s hair out the other night. Like that fro?? We thought he looked like Kramer from Seinfeld! 2. I’m loving Bobbi’s Summer Shred.  I’m not used to doing such endurance workouts, and I’m definitely having to modify things.  However, I’m loving it.  It is […]

I love fresh nut butter. However, I never make my own for two reasons. 1. My food processor is terrible. 2. I’m lazy. I have some really good friends who make great nut butter.  Now, I make some really good nut butter… just the “cheater” way. Several years ago when I started using PB2, it […]
