Weekend Update: 5/27/14–Memorial Day

What a weekend!! Scott and I took today off too – so we are still enjoying an extra long weekend around here.

My weekend started with Friday morning spin/bodypump – with just Becky and I. We got a great workout in and it was the perfect start to the weekend. Smile 


Stopped at a friend’s house to visit their precious new baby and walked down to the local school for baby animal day.


Spark fuel for the road trip to the Lake.


The Lake. So happy!


Of course we had to bring Luke’s tractor. . .


Scott surprised me with a dozen cupcake from Buttercream for my birthday. YUM.


We started with salted caramel.


While Aunt Jenny and Lukie brushed each other’s teeth.


And sang songs with Grandpa Tom before bed.


Saturday morning at the lake always starts with doughnuts. <love>


And we checked out the local Amish auction.


Puppy nap time.


Saturday evening run.


Beach time.




We celebrated my birthday on Saturday night. . .

A cute and clever card from my sister, Jenny. . . who gave me a pink calculator.


And this beautiful card that Laura made herself!


And from my parents. . .



After Luke went to bed, we broke into the cupcakes again. We split most of them into fourths so we could each time a few bites of all the flavors. My favorite was cookies and cream!


Sunday was the hangout day. . .


Another run – 5 miles – on Sunday.


Followed by more beach time.



Monday, we headed back home. And stopped to get my birthday Caribou.


Cute cards from friends. (Thanks Melanie!)


And we finished the weekend and my birthday with a family run.


A great weekend!! What were you up to?

Linking up with Becky for treat yourself Tuesday because ummm did you see those cupcakes? Winking smile

    The lake looked so much fun! Sounds like you definitely need a day like today to relax and catch up from the weekend… Enjoy!

    We went down to St. Louis to visit Ryan’s family. It was a good relaxing visit with a barbecue with family.

    I am guessing the cupcakes are what were in the freezer?? They look awesome. Looks like you had an awesome birthday weekend. Hope to see you again Friday morning. Love having a personal trainer to start my weekend;)

    Love your positive upbeat life! If you need another older sister – I’ll apply! Family looks incredible…and I can sing and run with Dad – eat cupcakes and donuts with you…and of course spoil Luke!

  5. Cutting up the cupcakes into fourths is such a smart way to sample all of them without feeling like you are going to explode. They all look so delicious and so do those doughnuts!
    I am so glad you are having such a great birthday weekend!

  9. Yummy cupcakes and great work on the runs!! My Saturday run got rained out, so I did a few mini workouts instead.

    OMG! Buttercream…. We had their cake for our wedding 🙂 It looks like you had the best birthday weekend ever! I hope you’re enjoying your extra day off too.

  12. Oh my gosh that tractor! So cute! Mason would kill for one of those. 🙂 And those cupcakes, YUMMM. Excellent work, hubby!!

    I’m pretty sure weekends at the lake are the absolute best thing about living in the midwest.

    Happy birthday! 🙂
