weekend shenanigans

happy monday!!!
hope everyone had a great weekend!
as you can see, i’ve changed “our weekend adventures” to “weekend shenanigans”. that’s just much more us and fits us way better than ‘adventures’.
so here we go!


casual fridays are my favorite!!! and i’m selling chocolate for jaz’s cheer squad…need so choco-lottttt? #MomLife

i picked up some mod pizza and a delicious salad for the fam bam on my way home from work. seriously, i could live off of their salads!


i was so pooped friday that i didn’t even change out of my shirt that i wore all day. so saturday morning looked a lot like friday night.

and the cheer season has begun! our saturdays are now completely booked up until december! first up, carwash!! the girls raised close to $600!! holy cannoli!

if you ever come over for a dinner party or any kind of get-together at my house you can almost always count on me making guacamole. i swear, it will be my legacy.

momma jo has been staying with us for the past week and will be for this coming week too! she’s been helping with watching austin while i’m back at work and until he can go to day care. thanks momma jo!! she lives in arizona so the cooler temps are a dream for her and she is literally just laying in the grass reading a book. hehehe

auntie bea is in town too!!! last time she was here austin was still pretty fresh and pretty boring to say the least haha now he’s all smiles for his auntie!

before aaron & kelsey came over we all went for a walk around the neighborhood. admiring and judging people’s yards is basically the norm on our walks now.

this handsome dude enjoyed some sun while sissy & cousin olen played in the pool!

sarah might as well be an anderson

champagne…3 glasses and i felt like complete poop the next day. but chateau st michelle’s brut rosè is so good!


this dude is always the happiest in the mornings! look at those legs!!

it’s finally starting to cool off and i loathhhhheee the ac unit being in our living room. it’s so ugly, but necessary! (seattle homes do not have ac, i got lots of questions about that on snap over the weekend lol) but anyway, this came out! woohoo!

after bathtime, farmor got in some finger chewing. our boy is ferociously teething so if your fingers are near, he will use them.

austin has been trying out new solids for about a week now. i’ve been testing out the organic gerber first foods just to see which ones he really takes to so that i’m not wasting a lot of veggies but he is so hit and miss on most nights that i just decided to start making all of them now. mmmm carrots carrots carrots!

what did you do this weekend?? gearing up to send your kiddos to school? i know the south has started already but we don’t start until 2 days after labor day! seems so late!

let me know what you did or link you weekend shenanigans in the comments and i’ll go take a peek!




our weekend adventures


i posted my bridals friday morning, did you see???
if you missed it, you can read all about dori →{here}←

work this week was a doozy…we are getting audited in all of our departments {payroll, accounts payable and grants} and i’m about to pull my hair out! bleghhhhh! so coming home to this view in our neighborhood was the calmness that i needed. yay for fridays!

lulu had a rough week too.


hopefully jaz’s last game!!! its starting to get cold and rainy so we are crossing our fingers that this will be here last game for the season!

look at us big babies! but seriously…it was friggen cold!

after mina’s game, cale wanted to stop by a little swedish store to get his favorite goat cheese and cracker thing {tastes awful….} and we decided to play dress up instead!

winter is almost here which means…lulu’s fur is getting long! time to start the brushing!!


we met up with our good friends and their babies for dimsum! yum yum yum!!

and yes i got my baby fix! little miss eleanor, y’all! so chunky and so sweet!!!!

jaz got her baby fix too! these two are something else!

i just can’t get enough! and yes…jaz had a wardrobe change…sighhh…what have i created!

friendsgiving is next weekend and i volunteered to do the turkey again…just as long as i didn’t have to host! haha hosting last year was quite the chore and planning that AND a wedding would have killed me. not to toot my own horn…but uh…BOTH of my turkeys last year turned out fantastically….ahem {toot toot}. i’m excited! yay food!

i had a couple of my neighbor friends over for some snacks and wine to catch them up on how the wedding went and to catch up on all the things i missed while i was in wedding lala land! it’s always a good time with my ladies!

hoped you stayed dry this weekend! it was quite the soggy one.
for the most part, our weekend was pretty quiet, which was so nice. laying around the house in our pjs while it’s raining is seriously the best!
quiet weekends are my jam!!

what did you do??

our weekend adventures


i still felt like poo so no pictures for this day. 😦


jaz had two games on saturday so i had to endure the sun…ahhhhh! i still wasn’t feeling 100% so i was miserable.

these poor girls. they were dying by the end of the second game. but it was a gorgeous day. good job seattle!

i came home to some wonderful surprises! proofs for the signage for our wedding!! ahhhhh!

i’ve been doing some thrift shopping for the frames for our wedding and this weekend was dedicated to making them prettiful again!
i can’t take credit here though, cale is such an amazing fiancé and handyman! this was phase 1.

they had such a rough saturday. laying around all day takes a lot out of ya.


cale & i slept in and woke up just in time for the seahawks game. ugh what a tough loss, it was a great game though! superbowl round 3? i think yes!

you guys! look at how awesome these turned out!!!! my honey is so awesome. I am so lucky to have a fiancè that wants to partake in wedding shenanigans. ❤

cale posted this recipe on my facebook wall and was practically drooling on everything. so he made a little trip to the store and bought all the ingredients and made the damn thing… pure sugar yall. pure sugar.

i still have a sore throat but i am finally feeling better after a week long sickness, ugh that was awful!!!
how was your yall’s weekend??
