Happy Monday! Hope you had a great weekend! We were busy around here. . .
Luke and I enjoyed the 52! and sunny weather – and went out for a run together.
Sarah and Brynn came to Mankato to check out the Christmas event at the Verizon Center.
Matt and Scott joined us and we all headed back to our house for Chipotle and good conversation. It was so nice to see the kids playing together, while we were able to enjoy some good conversation.
And the evening ended with some of this. . .
Checking out the new house. . . progress is so exciting!
A nice 8 mile run on Saturday morning. . .
Followed by Laura – my little sister – getting into town for the weekend! Lunch at Wendy’s –> awesome!
We were busy running errands on Saturday afternoon – man, the mall and Target were INSANE!!
We had a great time chatting and catching up while making a double batch of carmelitas –> so so so good!!
And homemade nachos for dinner.. . served on the cookie sheet.
We finished off the night with The Hunger Games and Laura checking out Jamberry nails!!
And she brought chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter ganache filling and chocolate frosting – holy yum!
She loved them!!
Sunday morning coffee time and more chatting. . . And Aunt Laura was ah-mazing and got up with Luke at 6:30am…
– and then when he went down for his nap – she got started on the cookies. ..
Seriously, you can come back anytime.
And then, we can’t get together without doing crafts. So, an idea and a quick trip to JoAnn’s. . .. details and final product coming up in a post!!
And then an awesome recipe for lunch. . . recipe inspiration from here. I topped mine with apricot preserves and pepper jelly. YUM! These would be the perfect Holiday appetizer.
The rest of the day was spent finishing the Hunger Games (yes, we couldn’t stay up late enough on Saturday night to finish it – we are officially old!), hanging out, and catching up on stuff around the house. I fit in a quick 3 mile treadmill run while Luke took a short afternoon nap.
Leftovers, TV, and cookies finished out our Sunday night. . . which is ok by me! 😉
Hope you had a great weekend too!! Up to anything exciting?
