Weekend Wrap-Up

Happy Monday Ladies!
I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am that there are no alarm clocks going off this morning, no lunches to make, and no backpacks to pack this summer!  Happy first week of summer to us!
We had a nice low key weekend, which was just what we needed.  But good lord it has been HOT here, like upper 90's and humid sucks in my opinion...I hate it.  I was so glad to not have had to be at the ballfield all weekend in the miserable heat! 
Friday I was so looking forward to sleeping in, and well I was up and wide awake at 7!  I was mad I wasn't able to sleep in, however it was so nice to sit outside and drink my coffee and just have some peace while everyone was still asleep.
I love sitting outside in my jammies drinking my coffee in the morning!
After the kids woke up we did some work around the house, ran to the grocery store, and dropped Jack and some of his buddies off to the movies!  And then I had to run to Toys R Us, the Shopkins obsession is still in full force over here and Olivia just "had to have" the so cool fridge....
I still don't get what all the rage is over these, but I know I am spending way more money than I would like on it:)
After our running around we came home, we ate sloppy joes for dinner, and watched a was a great, much needed, low-key night for us!
Saturday morning we woke up and once again it was HOT HOT HOT!  It was our neighborhood pool party Saturday morning, and lucky for me my neighbor offered to take Olivia..I am not a huge fan of the pool when there are a gazillion people it was so hot and I was quite happy to hang in my nice cool house. 
Around 2, Mark and I decided to just get in the car and take a ride, no clue to where, but we just wanted to spend a little time together.  We wound up driving a little over an hour north of us, where he used to live with his dad when he first came to NC.  It was so nice for him to show me around, and then he decided to show me where all his family lives, and well they were home and we stopped in for a visit.  I said to him, we can't just show up unexpected...I mean that's rude right??  Well he assured me they wouldn't mind, and well sure enough they didn't.  It was out in the country, and his aunt/uncle and his two cousins all live on the same street, like their private little road called Atwood St....I mean it was great!  We had such a nice day visiting with his family, I enjoyed so much meeting them!  After a few hours we left and stopped and had dinner before heading home to the kiddos.  When I got home that night I had told him it was the BEST day....sometimes unexpected plans turn into the best days!

I love this man for so many reasons...and it's the little things, like making the bed together, that make every single day just that much better! 
Sunday we slept in, and other than a quick run to the store for a few essentials, we stayed put, in the AC all day.  It is such a nice feeling to know my Sunday nights are no longer about getting the kiddos ready for the week at school! 
Hope everyone else had a great weekend!  See you back here tomorrow!
