Weekend Top 5

Hello! How was your weekend? Ours was a good one! Friday and Saturday were pretty busy (what’s new?) and then Sunday provided a bit more time to do a few things and prep for the week.

I’m linking up with Sarah and Holly for Hello Monday…

to tell you about my:

We had a great weekend; here are the details:

After school, I picked the kids up, and we got Hayden a haircut. Then, I went to Trader Joe’s. Earlier in the week, I realized that I hadn’t really been in a few weeks and immediately had FOMO on what I may be missing out on with all things fall at TJ.

I did my best to resist:

I’m going to hold off on decorating the front porch until hopefully this weekend. I wanted to get my inside of the house in order before tackling the porch. And…I’m hoping for cooler temps some time soon.

Anyway, I picked up quite a few fall things like pumpkin bagels and pumpkin cream cheese. I will share my haul tomorrow.

Friday night, Hadley and I went to my school’s football game with friends. It was a beautiful evening for football.

Hayden had a cross country meet on Saturday. Travis has been working non-stop, so he met us there just in time to coach his boys.

It was a hot day on a tough course and the first 4k (2.4 miles) of the season. Hayden came in second and the team placed 1st!

We were all so proud of the boys…especially once we found out why Hayden’s watch said he ran 2.7 miles…The high schoolers run before middle school, and when our boys were out there running, I thought it was taking longer it should. Apparently, they didn’t rope off a part of the course to make it shorter for the middle school runners…hence why it took longer and Hayden’s watch said 2.7 miles.

Thankfully, they figured out the course situation before the girls ran.

After the race, Travis headed back to work. Hayden and I hit the road home with a stop at Culvers. I’m not sure how he ran in that heat and still wanted a bacon cheeseburger and milkshake, but that was his request!

While we were at the race, Hadley was with her friends living her best life at the UK game. She had lots of fun.

Saturday evening, we all laid low, had carry out for dinner, and were in bed around 10.

I did get my fall decorations up over the weekend, and I love the coziness of the fall decor. I can’t wait for the temps to get cooler and really feel like fall.

I hope to share a little fall decor home tour later this week. I don’t change much year to year, but I did make a stop at Michael’s on Saturday and picked up a couple of new items.

Yesterday, Hadley and I spent the afternoon cheering on the volleyball CATS. They were playing Nebraska. We try to get to a UK volleyball game or two each season. They are so fun to watch.

After the game, we went and picked up new dance shoes for Hadley. Since Travis was still at work, I had to take Hayden to his basketball evaluations. Then, we had a late dinner and headed to bed.

Sunday morning, I finished a really good book: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. This had been on my list for quite a while, and it was so good.

This week will be a doozy…Travis is still really busy with work, the kids have their regular activities, and I’m running our fall credit recovery session this week after school. We only have a couple of more weeks until Fall Break, and the count down is officially on!

What was the highlight of your weekend? I hope you have a great week.

  1. That does sound like such a fun and busy weekend! I am determined to decorate the house TODAY; I pulled out my totes weeks ago and keep putting it off… but I want all the pumpkin/leaf things surrounding me so I won’t be nearly as shocked when I walk outside and need a jacket. Our summer to fall transition was pretty abrupt this year.

  2. I feel the same about TJ’s. I am seeing all the fall things and I need to get there, but I think I may save it for a Fall Break morning? Our fall break is in 8 school days! EEk! So, the credit recovery will have you busy. Our grading period ends tomorrow, so there will be some rude awakenings.
    Have a great week, even though I know it will be busy!

    1. Well, hadley was the one that mentioned pumpkin bagels and remembered that once they were gone, they were gone …so I bought her threes packs and three pumpkin cream cheeses haha. We have two full weeks of school …& then a week off. Counting down for sure!


  3. What a great weekend! I have two weekend highlights: one is having a one on one dinner with my son, Noah. We met at a Chinese restaurant and sat and caught up, which was so nice. The second thing is that we had a hot air balloon festival in town this weekend, and I kept seeing them all over town. I love seeing those! They always sound so peaceful. I’m glad you enjoyed your weekend! Yay for some new fall finds!
