Weekend Things

What can I say about this weekend except that coming back from vacation on a Thursday + a spring cold has me feeling out of sorts and confused about what day it is. But I know we celebrated my sister’s birthday, Joey and Dempsey went to the CU Spring Game and Lydia and I attended Lauren’s baby shower on Sunday. All fun and happy things 🀍

Busted out my new red beans and rice soap from NOLA on Friday. Don’t worry it doesn’t really smell like beans πŸ˜‹ And look, our tulips started to bud while we were gone! Worked and did a bunch of vacation laundry on Friday, then spent the evening at Edgewater Public Market to celebrate my sis. We put two candles in Dempsey’s ice cream cone and then he blew them out for Aunt Bean πŸ˜‚ We hadn’t seen her or Wayne since their trip to Mexico City/Puerta Vallarta but it sounded like they had such a nice time and they brought back some really nice gifts for all of us!

This little girl loves to randomly wake up in the 5:30/6 AM hour and that’s too early for Mom. Joey is always kind enough to get up with her so I can catch some extra zzzzs. Saturday morning I found them downstairs watching Top Gun: Maverick. She was just starting to doze off when I came down, go figure! Awake and happy in her chair by the time we had breakfast ready though. Hadn’t made our favorite vegan pancakes in a minute so they tasted extra good! Jory and Betsy got tickets for us and our older kiddos to go to the CU Spring Game but this cold is still plaguing me and we woke up to snow on the ground, so didn’t feel like the best idea for me to go sit out in the cold for three hours. Joey and Dempsey still went though and judging from the pictures, videos and their own report, they had a great time. Joey had been practicing the fight song with Dempsey for a few weeks and he’d gotten so good at it!

Back at home, me and Little Miss were cuddling πŸ₯° We put Dempsey down for a suuuper late nap when they got back home then woke him up an hour later. Joey and I tag-teamed dinner and I was smart enough to plan soup for a snowy day. Dempsey told us “I don’t want soup!” then ate almost the whole bowl. He’s so funny sometimes. Put those babes to bed and fired up Ted Lasso, which I didn’t realize we were so many episodes behind on!

Sunday 🀍 Lydia was awake and chatting to herself at 6:30, so Joey took her downstairs again. Once Dempsey and I were up, Joey made egg sandwiches for the boys. I took a shower then put Lyds down for her nap and once she was back up, we both got dressed and headed out the door with my sis to my sister-in-law’s baby shower. I know I had two co-ed showers myself, but there is something nice about an all female event. Lauren looked lovely and everyone gifted she and Adam such nice stuff. Lori knocked it out of the park again with that golf cart diaper cake! And the babies had a sweet moment of looking at each other 😍

Since I had done all the laundry on Friday, the rest of our Sunday was oddly relaxed. I made salads and we all took a long walk around the lake and stopped at the park, where Dempsey was absolutely enthralled by a man and his daughter flying a kite. Guess we’ll have to get him one! Wishing you all a good and happy week.
