Weekending + a $50 PayPal Giveaway!

Monday, June 27, 2016

Happy Monday! This weekend was a good one - a real good one. In fact, it was so good that it not only went by entirely too fast BUT I also managed to take almost no pictures. It was nothing super out of the ordinary, but I thought I'd do a little recap.

Friday I took off from work. It's pretty slow during the summer since there is a large gap between events so instead of taking a whole week off (since we don't really have any vacations planned), I have just been taking random days off. The past two weeks either Mason had a doctor appointment or I did so this was the first one I really got to enjoy. I started the day off by trying one of those #purpledrinks that I shared on Friday. And I have to say... it was good!


I don't really like coconut milk so I never tried the #pinkdrink but the #purpledrink has passion iced tea, soy milk, vanilla syrup, and berries and I like all of those things so I figured, why not? And honestly, it was so good! I almost went back and got another one yesterday but I'm trying to stay on my Starbucks budget for the month. We'll see how long that lasts!

The rest of Friday I got a bunch of blog stuff done and then I met one of my old co-workers for a late lunch and then I did a little shopping. It was a great afternoon!

Saturday, Seth and I dropped Mason off at his Saturday ABA school and then ran some errands. We picked Mason up at 2pm, came home to play, and this happened.


Mason might or might not have dumped a HUGE bin of Legos on the floor and yelled "PARTY!" much to my dismay. However, it did keep him busy for a while, so it was still a win in my book.

Shortly thereafter, we met up with Seth's mom for dinner and then called it a night.


Sunday morning we took it really slowly and were super lazy.... including playing on snapchat. I don't know why but this filter cracks me up. 


Once we finally got around to getting ready to run some errands around 10:30am, we headed to Costco and then eventually to the grocery store. We debated trying to give Mason a nap and he insisted that he "was not tired" (of course) so I updated our gallery wall with his new artwork that the school just sent home last week and then we went over to my mother in law's house for our Sunday family dinner. The "fireworks" and the watermelon are my favorite!




Overall, it was a good, good weekend! It went by entirely too fast and I am super bummed it's over already. That being said, next weekend is a holiday weekend (woohoo!) and I'm already counting down the days until I get to spend 3 whole days (maybe 4??) with my little family!

And completely unrelated, but sure to make your Monday start better, I'm co-hosting a $50 PayPal giveaway with some of my favorite bloggers. Check out the rafflecopter below to enter! Good luck!

  14. I have yet to try the pink or the purple drink at Starbucks, but they look SO good! Holy Legos Batman!! I love that he shouted “party” after pouring them out! Haha.

  16. I keep forgetting fourth of july is in two seconds. Loving that watermelon art, I think Aria needs to do that! We don't craft very much when there aren't holidays around, and I hate the fourth so it doesn't really count in my book.

  19. I've never tried snap chat- all these filter pics I see on Instagram are so hilarious. I love the gallery wall idea. It's fantastic because it can be changed out for new art.
