Weekend Update: 5/11/14

Another weekend over. This weekend seemed long and short all at the same time. We did a lot of things, but didn’t get enough done – isn’t that how it almost always works? Oh well, there is always next weekend, right?

Here is what we were up to around here. ..


Drive up to the cities. Park time with Aunt Laura.


Dinner with my sisters.


Garage sales with Abby and Luke = new puzzle and new clothes.


There is still some work being done in the house, so we were hiding out in the downstairs bedroom drinking smoothies and watching Bob the Builder.


I was very productive during Luke’s nap time = fruit punch spark and a new Jamberry nails manicure.


Abby really enjoys nap time too.


The deck is almost done!


Happy mail day from Advocare. I couldn’t wait to try O2 gold.


So, I checked it out for my run on Saturday morning. 5 hilly miles done. I conquered this huge hill that I normally do everything I can to avoid. And it wasn’t that bad. I’d like to use it a few more times before I give a full review, but I liked it!


And I came home to this in my front yard. Luke was in little boy heaven.


In the afternoon, I headed off to a local winery where they had a women’s event to represent Jamberry nails. I handed out a ton of samples for people to check out.


And of course I was right next to the bakery table – yum! And we were in the barrel room, which was a super cool space.


More afternoon fun.


The project – building window wells.



Sunday was spent sleeping in! And then headed out for a gorgeous 5 mile run. 55 degrees and overcast was the perfect Sunday morning running weather.

My parent’s took Luke and Abby home with them on Saturday night. And then they brought them back on Sunday.

Lukie walked in the house carrying a bouquet of red roses. He handed them to me and said “flowers for Mama.” So cute!

We went out to 5 guys for lunch.


Then. .. more work outside.

My Mom watched Luke while my Dad, Scott and I continued to work on the window well project. Progress is slow, but we are getting there. They had said that it would rain all afternoon, but we lucked out with sunny skies and 65 degree weather. Perfect for working outside.


Sunday evening = laundry, cleaning up around the house, and Lukie snuggles.

What were you up to?

    Looks like a fun and productive weekend! I love the picture of Luke in the ‘digger!’ This weekend we went up North to the cabin. It was beautiful on Saturday! We did lots of yard work and got the boats and the dock in the water! Sunday was relaxing- we left the cabin early to do more yardwork around the house. The Jamberry event you held looked like a fun time! I researched the winery and it isn’t too far from us (about an hour 15 minutes). We consider that close! 😉 Maybe we will hit it up this summer! I love Wineries! Oh, and Day 1 of Advcare 24DC starts TODAY! 🙂

    Love your blog – what hill was that? Let me know how the O2 goes for you.

  3. Haha I love the pic of Abby holding up the iPad!

    Happy Mother’s Day! Looks like it was a good one. 🙂

      Happy Mother’s Day to you too!! digging out window wells wasn’t on my mother’s day to do list, but it needed to get done!

  4. Very fun to get to represent Jamberry nails at the women’s event! I’m sure women were excited to hear about the adorable decals.
    Ohhh boy…we dug out our window wells last year and that was NOT a fun task! The first window well Dana and I dug and wheeled the dirt up into our backyard, the second window well we called upon a few guy friends to help. They took care of that thing so fast and saved my back!

  5. Looks like a great weekend and congrats on conquering the hill! We got back from Mexico late Friday night, so the weekend was mainly spent grocery shopping, laundry, and recovery. Did get to see my mom yesterday for Mother’s Day, though!

      Getting home from vacay is tough, but I always feel better once the fridge is full and the laundry is done. 🙂

  6. Looks like you had a busy and fun weekend!!! I ran 8 miles on Saturday and then went to the park for a friend’s birthday. Followed that up with dinner with friends. Sunday-run/walk with the pup (who decided to lay down in the water fountain after 2 miles of running) and then a cookout for Mother’s Day. All in all, a great weekend!

      Awesome weekend!! Abby will lay down during runs too – especially if she gets hot and there is some water to cool off in!

  7. Ellie is less thrilled about being an iPad holder than Abby is. Could you work on that?

      And she didn’t even seem to mind – just as long as she could be on the bed with us and sleep and she was good to go. 🙂
