Hi friends! Monday is coming to a close and that means that we are one day closer to FOOOOTBAAAALL SATURDAAAAY! We’re heading to Athens on Saturday to watch our Dawgs play Bama. The weather is supposed to be cloudy and cool, so we are hopefully going to have a perfect football weekend… all we need is a WIN!!!!
We spent Friday evening downtown. Our city has brought back their outdoor concert series now that the weather has finally cooled down, so we took the kids down there for dinner and some live music. The kids always love hanging out by the fountain (Olivia would have preferred to hang out in the fountain – seriously, she threw multiple fits when we wouldn’t let her get in there) and Jacob was ecstatic because the balloon lady was there. She made him a Georgia (red and black) fishing pole so he could “fish” in the fountain. Good thing we had that as backup in case somebody needed to fish Olivia out.
Saturday, I never even left the house. I stayed in my PJs aaaall day, took a shower late in the afternoon only to change into another pair of PJ’s, ate some Five Guys take-out that Brian and Jacob picked up, drank some pumpkin beer, and watched college football. All. Day. Long. We are always on the go, so I adore rare days like this when we have nowhere to be. During football games I worked on a couple of projects including making over these pumpkins. I’ll be posting the finished ones later this week.
Sunday we actually got dressed and left the house… we took the kids out to Jason’s Deli for lunch, and then over to the playground to get some fresh air since they were both cooped up in the house all day Saturday. They sure do love this new playground. Neither of them wanted to leave!
Sunday evening, instead of going to my parents’ house for dinner like usual, we had them over to our house so I could cook for my mom for her birthday. I made Baked Ziti, tossed a salad with all the fixins, and baked some garlic breadsticks along with a double chocolate cake for the perfect birthday dessert. We opened a bottle of wine, turned on some tunes, and sat around chatting and laughing all evening. I sure do love these people! It’s always such a wonderful way to close out the weekend and prepare for the week ahead.
Today I'm linking up with B Loved Boston for Weekending.
