Another Crazy, Busy Weekend!

What an exciting and busy weekend we had!

Friday night we took the kids out to get their school supplies since they are starting school tomorrow (agghhh!). After that, my mom watched them and we went out to dinner with my sister and her boyfriend who had just gotten in from Michigan. We had a great time with them!

Saturday morning was a very crazy day, and everything was timed down to the minute! I started it off with an early morning walk with my neighbor. Then I came home and showered and got ready and was able to sit outside and drink an iced latte with John and the neighbors for approximately 10 minutes before I had to head to the spa. My sisters and mom and I were having a spa day in celebration of my mom’s birthday back in July…it was our present to her. So I went and had a massage and then we all got pedicures and manicures together (my nails look fabulous!).

After that I rushed home to feed Colton, grab some food and get Kylie and go see John’s sister for our hair appointments. Kylie got her hair cut short with layers and it looks adorable! After we were done we rushed home again and found Suzie sitting on the porch with Dad saying that they were going to go downtown early because she was bored. Here’s the thing…she thought we were all going to dinner for Mom’s birthday that night, when in reality, we were going down for her surprise 30th birthday party. So her wanting to leave early was messing everything up! Thankfully, Mom and Dad took her and her boyfriend downtown to another bar for drinks while I rushed and fed Colton and got ready and waited for Miss G. to get there to babysit.

Once the kids were settled and we were ready, we left and got to the restaurant where my other sister and her husband were waiting with two of Suzie’s out of town friends. When Suzie got there she was surprised! We had an awesome dinner at Bucca Di Beppo and then headed over to the piano bar where we had been for Cindy’s bachelorette party the year before. Let me just tell you, it was a lot more fun this year not being pregnant! And John and I really had a great night out together!

Sunday we taught Sunday school and then came home and really just chilled. My sisters came over and we hung out for a little bit before everyone had to head home. After that, I tried to take a nap (not very successful) and then we headed out to finish getting the school supplies we didn’t get Friday night and kind of just had a nice, laid-back evening out with just our family. We are really bad about giving the kids their allowance, so at Target they each got a pack of Squinkies. They are pretty cute and the kids love them!

So now we’re set for a busy week ahead…first day of school tomorrow and then John is leaving for Bristol for a weekend with the guys. I hope I survive this week :)

Girl you certainly do live a full, busy and fun life!! I love the fact that you are all so "family" orientated, it's awesome. I miss our "family ties" we used to have so enjoy hearing about yours and the closeness.
Glad Sunday afternoon / evening was a bit calmer for you, time to catch a breather, right?
Love, love the picture. The bright colors are amazing but the smiles say it all.
