Weekend Rewind

Another good weekend in the books! A few highlights...
Friday night it was pouring down rain when I arrived home. I was just about to begin the dinner time drill of heating up as many frozen items I could find for the minis when Matt called me and declared he was taking us out for pizza (and beer)! So yeah, the weekend was off to a solid start.
Another mom suit from CupShe -- $20! But it goes on sale every other day for $13!
Saturday we didn't have any plans so off to the pool we went to let the kiddos burn off some energy.
I am literally going to cry the day my minis outgrow hooded towels. We just received this whale and anchor hooded towel set and they are hands down the softest and most absorbent towels ever.

The rest of the day we ran our usual errands -- grocery store, coffee shop, dry cleaner, Home Depot, took a walk, etc. 
After the kiddos went to bed Matt and I retreated to the backyard for a date nite. We sipped vodka cherry lemonades, played Jenga (loser had to refill drinks!), grilled steaks and relaxed. 
Sunday we made a trip to the mall. But first we put on a tad of makeup -- Caroline's idea, not mine. I swear Caroline is turning into a little mini-me more and more each day. She must apply chapstick anytime she catches me applying it, carries a purse anytime we leave the house, loves to "halp mommy cook" and more. But I digress!

We wandered around the mall long enough to pick up a few things for Matt including some new shoes, work pants and even convinced him to get some non dad jeans. I replenished my favorite moisture surge face cream, moisture surge night cream and Matt convinced me to get some new Steve Madden sunnies on super sale (which Caroline confiscated immediately). Oh, and we threw pennies into the fountain because we had to follow through on our "don't be naughty and I'll give you some pennies" threat/bribe so we could complete our shopping spree in record timing!

Sunday night we successfully tricked the kids into going to bed one hour early which rounds out the weekend as the finale highlight! And then we ate Brioche Shrimp Rolls for dinner and binged on Stranger Things.

And that is a wrap on the weekend.

  1. Hello! I also live in Charlotte and our weekend sounds pretty similar! Including a trip to the mall (Saturday) and getting the kids to bed one hour earlier last night, LOL! With the rain it was darker out...why not?! We were able to watch the Olympics and truly relax together on a Sunday evening which is rare.

    Glad you had a great weekend!! :)

    1. I was definitely hesitant to order because the sizing kind of sucks (you can't order tops/bottoms in separate sizes). I ordered a small and it's a little tight in some places and a little loose in others...but not enough to prevent me from scooping it up at that price! :)
