Slam packed amazing weekend!
Friday: We kicked off the weekend with happy hour in our driveway. A few weeks ago we dug up our backyard, graded it, added 10 tons of dirt and then seeded it in hopes to grow new plush green grass. As a result, we can’t walk on it for 3 weeks — so driveway party it was! Before the kids got home I ran to Target and grabbed some new squirt guns, or as Caroline calls them “shooter guns” as a big surprise. They have been fighting over this one disgusting shooter gun (I swear it was buried somewhere for like a decade before they found it) that ended up at our house somehow and I couldn’t take the meltdowns anymore. I also whipped up a family favorite snack plate of Boursin cheese, prosciutto, crackers and strawberries. The kids were elated and I felt like mom of the year for like 5 minutes.
Later, after the kiddos were in bed I made Hall of Fame Pineapple Pablano Beef Tacos from HelloFresh for dinner. These definitely live up to the “hall of fame” award and I will be making them again on my own.
Saturday: Matt made pancakes for breakfast and then we headed to the park for a birthday party for Thomas’ friend, Clark. After the party Caroline and I got manicures (an amazing birthday gift from my friends Cristina & McKinsey!). She picked super hot pink nail polish, of course. Once we were dry we ran home to change and picked up our friends, Sara & Ridley, for a baby shower for my sorority sister, Kristen.
Later that afternoon Sara & Wyn invited us over for a play date and dinner. They made amazing flank steak tacos, Lisa made an incredible Mexican street corn and I brought all the fixins!
Sunday: We attended the early church service to celebrate our friend John’s confirmation. Afterwards we headed to John & Lisa’s house to continue the celebrations alllll day long. It was the very best day.
And that’s another amazing weekend in the books!

Street corn recipe?!?!
Where are your shoes and red dress from? You look amazing! I really love this new shorter hair in you!
Boring comment of the year alert: We both work full time (plus) and have 3 under 4 and had a similarly packed weekend. As a result, my house is in shambles, ALL the laundry is dirty, and the groceries I did manage to acquire (using both wal mart pickup AND shipt, for ultimate laziness) did not get converted to wholesome meals for anyone. HOW do you keep your head on straight when life gets so busy?
HAHA. Well first, you have THREE minis to chase after which is a lot more work than two! Secondly, our house is TOTALLY in shambles after this weekend, we got zero laundry done and our fridge is empty. In fact, I had to run to the grocery store after work to pick up something pre-made to make sure no one would starve tonight. When our weekends are that packed out we pretty much throw in the towel on all the chores and catch up during the week!
Sounds like a fantastic weekend for all!! Love the happy hour in the driveway. We need to do something with our grass to get it to re-grow in some areas… so if you have suggestions… I’m all ears, lol.
Awesome weekend of fun and friends!! x
You really did cram it all in, girl!! Your HelloFresh dinners always make me miss our subscription something fierce!!

I love reading about your family, it brings back memories of when my family was young. I still don’t know how you do it though!
Please share where Sara’s dress is from! Love!
