Weekend Recap

Happy Monday Friends!

We started off our monday with Lola girl getting out of the house and having to chase her 😐 thankfully the day got better from there! Sharing with you the fun stuff that happened this weekend.

Friday we had the day off to head into Boston for THE BEST CONCERT EVER. If you we’re born in the 90’s, like country music, and don’t live under a rock you would have enjoyed this show…Florida Georgia Line, Backstreet Boys, Nelly & Chris Lane. I have been to a lot of concerts and I can easily say it was the best I have been too.

Saturday morning we slept in since we didn’t get home until 1am and my aunt had Lola so we actually could sleep! I had to babysit too so it was nice to get some rest before handling the two munchkins.

Sunday we had a relaxing day too and my parents came over for dinner and to help Bobby put up the railings on our back deck. After dinner we went to our favorite ice cream spot the Ice Cream Machine with both parents and Lola girl. She even got to try their homemade puppy ice cream! And no surprise she loved it.

It was a complete low key weekend, but it was what we needed after the running around we’ve been doing lately. I hope you all had a great weekend!

Weekend Recap

Holy Crap…its the week before Christmas already! This weekend was such a fun one that I thought I’d share a few photos 🙂

Saturday we woke up to our first snow! It was Lola’s first time playing in it and can I just say how cute my pup is playing in the snow!

We also had our family friends annual yankee swap. As always it was such a fun night with!

 

Sunday we went to see Santa! we had tried 2 other times before this and the wait was so long, I guess its true third times a charm. Lola loved Santa – she kept giving him kisses.

 

This week is going to be a busy one. I have to finish my shopping ( I hoped to be done by now), bake goodies, my company holiday dinner, lasalette lights, and a few others.

How did you spend your weekend before Christmas?!

everything fall. I have been breaking out the sweaters and cardigans with the beautiful fall weather that we’ve been having. Still need to buy some cute booties that I have been eyeing for awhile along with my outfit for our family photos next month.

Reading |

Betrayed by Lisa Scottoline. I’m half way through the book and its getting to the good stuff. I am hoping to finish this week.

Watching |

Once Upon A Time. This is one of my favorites. I could probably list about 10 other shows that I watch during the fall but I watched this last night so it was the first one to come to my mind.

Listening to |

Eric Church. His music is so amazing. He is so good live, I am still hoping to convince Bobby to go to his show again this January 🙂

Wishing |

For this week to fly by so we can finally host our Pumpkin Carving Party!

Eating |

Cupcakes 😐

Drinking |

My go-to fall drink – Shipyard Pumpkin with a Cinnamon Sugar rim!

Enjoying |

All of the fall activities we have done. We went to Salem this past weekend with some friends and it was awesome.

Looking forward to |

Our Pumpkin Carving Party this weekend. Friends Halloween Party the following weekend. and our family photos the weekend after that!
