Weekend Top 5

Hello and Happy Monday! How was your weekend? We had a great one filled with some downtime, a cross country meet, the Breeder’s Cup and more.

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

…to tell you about my:

Here’s a peek at our weekend:

On Friday after school, I had a few errands to run. I stopped by Bath and Body because I was wanting to pick up a few fall candles (hoping they’d have them on sale). Well, there were no fall candles to be found, but I picked up a few winter ones because they were on sale.

I got:

  • Marshmallow Fireside
  • Peppermint Sugar Cookie
  • Snowy Coconut Frost

Then, I stopped by Ulta for shampoo, and then I picked up my Kroger Clicklist order. I was home by 4:30 and felt so accomplished!

We were up sooo early on Saturday to go to Louisville for Hayden’s cross country race. This was his first club race of the season. Travis has been coaching the Lexington group, and it was so fun to watch runners come together for this Middle School National meet. Hayden was running with the 7th and 8th graders, and had an PR for the 4k race. Last year, I remember the weather was so cold for this race. This year, was warm with major winds. Crazy November weather.

The kids stayed in Louisville with Trav’s family, and Travis and I hopped in the car, changed our clothes at McDonald’s and headed to…

…the Breeder’s Cup at Keeneland. We had such an amazing day (and night) with our friends. (More about Breeder’s Cup tomorrow!)

After such a busy Saturday, I was all about “falling back…” Travis was up early on Sunday for work, and I slept in a bit. That being said, by 9:00, I’d changed the sheets on two beds, unloaded the dishwasher, and put up one of my favorite skinny trees.

I will keep this tree here until we get our real one after Thanksgiving. Then, I’ll move it to our bedroom.

A few lights seem to be out, but it makes me happy.

Not only did Hayden run a 4k on Saturday, he then got up early yesterday and ran 6.5 miles yesterday with his cousin. Then, he had an amazing basketball game. It’s always fun watching him do his thing.

Well, this week is off to an odd start. We don’t have school today due to sickness. We were already scheduled to be out tomorrow for Election Day, so I guess they are hoping having today off will give those who are sick an extra day of rest, and I know the custodians are going to deep clean the schools. I will say on Friday that my school had over 30 teacher absences with 18 of them unfilled. So, I’m guessing today’s decision was also due to lack of subs.

Anyway, I hope everyone stays healthy! I know flu and RSV are rampant.

I hope you have a great day,

  1. I will work backwards – oh wow – sickness? Is it the flu? I haven’t gotten my shot yet. Ugh!
    I was the same yesterday – I couldn’t sleep past 5:30 (my body thought it was 6:30) and I had accomplished so much by 9:00!
    I saw so many Breeder’s Cup pics in my social media feed!
    The weather here was so crazy Saturday but it really never rained to speak of.
    Great job to Hayden!
    Amazing on the Friday after school errands – such a good feeling!
    Hope you all don’t get sick and enjoy your unexpected day off! Do you have to do e-learning?


    1. The weather on Saturday was crazy. Warm and windy reminded me of spring / tornado season. Iโ€™m up early today too ๐Ÿ˜‚ today is just a day off that I assume we will make up at some point or absorb. I guess for the flu. We have lots of kids and teachers out with it. I got the vaccine when health providers came to school last month. Hopefully it works!


  2. What a great weekend! I love when I’m able to cross errands off my list really quickly like that. I always feel so good about myself when I do that! I hate to hear that you have so many out with sickness at your school. It’s almost to that point here as well and there are rumblings of them closing our schools here down for a few days to deep clean. So many people I know are sick with the flu! I hate that for them…here’s to staying well! Do you get a flu shot? I used to, but haven’t in years. This year has me thinking about getting one, though.

    1. Itโ€™s nice when the errands and close to each other and we have food for the weekend ๐Ÿ™‚ I do get the flu shot. Health providers come to our school one day in October and teachers can get vaccines. Iโ€™ve still gotten the flu a few times, but I still get the vaccine every year.


  3. Those candle scents sound amazing… and then I just lost an hour of my life on the Bath and Bodyworks website adding tons of Christmas gifts to my cart! It sounds like you had a fun weekend. Hope the deep cleaning of the school helps; it’s crazy how much school my son has already missed with illnesses this year. I swear it feels like someone in this house has had some sort of illness since School began.


  4. That looks like a great weekend! I can’t wait to hear about the Breeder’s Cup. Horse races are so fun to attend. I didn’t get any extra sleep but I appreciated the extra hour to get somethings done in the morning. How smart of your district to close on Monday to give everyone an extra day to get well. We are in the same boat at my school, but the teachers are faring pretty well. The kids are getting hit hard! Have a great day!
