Scenes From Our Weekend

Mar 17, 2014

We had the best weekend.  I was able to get out for a girls night which is always nice and then I accomplished alot around the house.

Friday Sterling’s new rug from Lulu and Georgia arrived and we were so excited to put it down.  The kids loved it so much (it is super soft) that we did happy hour in Sterlings room Saturday night:)  I can’t wait to paint his walls next, might tackle that over Spring Break!  The rug is perfect for a kids room or playroom because it is an indooroutdoor rug, so it is easy to clean and the price is not too expensive!


Friday night I went out for an awesome girls dinner out.  Sara and Mandy were in town and we had so much fun with them.  It is always so neat to finally met your blog friends in real life.  We met at The Ordinary for drinks and had dinner at The Grocery.

I wore my Leopard Equipment blouse.  Ladies this blouse is such a great fit, and pattern.

Blouse available here on major sale, here, here , and a different pattern here.

Loving this picture of me and Frances we snapped before I left.  I love going out but also love coming home to my kids.

Saturday I tackled cleaning off our patio and porch area it was embarrasing there was so much crap out there.  I cleaned everything off and next is project screen porch to playroom transformation.  It is a small area but right off the kitchen so I can easily watch the kids play out there.  It will be perfect for storing larger toys etc.

I posted on instgram how we order pizza every single weekend and I loved all the comments from other people who order pizza as much as we do!   Pizza is one of my favorite foods.

Sunday I whipped up a batch of three ingredient PB Cookies.  They were so easy and so good. Recipe is: 1 egg, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup pb.  Mix together and scoop onto baking sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees 12 mins.  Halfway thru and at the end I pressed them with a fork and sprinkled with sugar.

I will leave you with this picture of Sterling and his best attempt at a “real” smile.  I love how hard he tries to show me a genuine smile and it is always so over the top!

    the babies are the cutest little buttons! i'm pumped to meet your princess this week! love that last quote. it's so true. i can't stand negativity and seriously wonder how people don't realize that they're only drawing in the same reaction. even just smiling can make you (and everyone around you) feel better.

  8. I'm having withdrawls – I need to come back! Thanks for being such amazing hosts/tour guides…had the best time!! Such a fun group of ladies!

  9. Looks like so much fun!! I love that last picture – it's the same squinty eye try I get from my boys and then they always ask "am I smiling"

  11. What a fun weekend! Good luck with the playroom redo! Such a great space to have!

  16. BLovedBoston says:

    I love that easy pb cookie recipe too! I am due with my second baby today….but just waiting. My husband commented if the baby had a peanut allergy we'd be in Big trouble because we eat it so often! Yikes! Love your blog and so happy you and the kids are healthy and happy.

  20. šŸ™‚ Love it all and as soon as Fletch outgrows his peanut allergy (bc I choose to believe he will) i'm making those cookies!!
