Hello and Happy Monday! Well, I sure feel like the weekend flew by! Today, I’m recapping the highlights of our weekend!
Friday was a hard day. Very hard. I was counting the minutes until I could get home and put on my pajamas and just relax. We got carry out pizza, and I watched a movie and two episodes of Maid on Netflix. The movie I watched was Love Hard with my favorite comedian Heather McMahan. She was actually in Cincinnati on Friday night, and since I couldn’t be at the show, I decided to watch her new movie. She’s only in it a bit, but it was a cute movie, and she was so funny in the scenes she was in. I was happy to be in bed by 10!
On Saturday, I did a quick Trader Joe’s run, and picked up some of these cookies. They are so good!
Saturday evening my kids ran in a track meet at Bellarmine in Louisville. My nephew hosted the inaugural Lloyd White Memorial Distance Festival in honor of Trav’s dad (Jacob and my kids’ grandpa) who died tragically when Travis was in high school. There were so many awesome runners. The weather was cold (37 degrees at race time), but I loved seeing my kids run in honor of their grandfather. Hadley hadn’t laced up her spikes since last February, but she finished with a great time. Hayden crushed his run.
It was great seeing family, and we were all proud of every runner and Jacob’s team for hosting the event.
Hayden had a basketball training session on Saturday morning. I know this may sound silly, but just sitting there watching him play while reading a book was a highlight of the weekend. Honestly, I usually schedule every second of the week and weekend. I typically would have run an errand during that time, but was glad to just hang out and watch.
Last night, Hayden had a game which was an exciting one to watch. His team won by two points, so it was an action packed game!
Hadley helped me make our first (only?) pumpkin pie of the season.
This one can definitely be filed under “tastes better than it looks.” My oven was acting up, so I was lucky to even get it baked! It tasted delish with a dollop of Cool Whip on top!
So, that’s how we spent our weekend! Travis has been really busy with work, so I’ve been extra busy on kid duty. Thankfully, we have just this week before getting a week off for Thanksgiving. Our superintendent changed our calendar about a month ago to give us a week at Thanksgiving. I’ll take it!
I hope you have a great start to your week.
Linking up with Heather and others!
