Weekend Highlights

I feel like any weekend that you go away, it always feels like it flies by!
This weekend was filled with family since we visited MG's family up in PA.

My weekend highlights included:

~Friday afternoon FaceTime gossip date with my buddy Shay and her cute little lovebug Nicholas
~Drove up to Philly instead of NJ because my BIL was sick with a stomach bug

~Had upside down pizza with my in-laws (ever heard of it? So delicious!)

~Hung out with my other SIL and BIL, the nieces and nephew, and some of their friends who'd come over
MG got attacked by the girls :)
~On Saturday morning MG's dad was incredibly amazing and hooked us up with a contractor's discount on a new, custom-made vanity for our guest bathroom including the granite top.
Can't wait to get it all made, and installed!
~Got to pick out granite from the lot like they do on the home improvement shows

~Went to my nephew's soccer game

~Got to hold a super newborn little kitten that MG's parents' neighbors took in because it had been abandoned
Look how tiny!!!!
~Helped my in-laws pick out new paint colors and flooring for their living room

~This little nugget tagged along:
~The rest of the family came over that night and we all hung out at MG's parents house and got to catch up some more

~Gave my oldest niece one of my college sweatshirts since she's a big fan of my alma mater--kinda neat seeing her in something I used to wear
I loved how excited she was to wear it.
~Left early Sunday morning to have brunch at my SIL's place in NJ since my BIL was feeling better. 
~Took a walk around the lake by their house after a bunch of delicious food!
~Drove home, Cooper passed out from all of the fun from the weekend

~Ran our errands with the windows down and sunroof open

~Enjoyed the amazing weather on the deck in our new zero gravity chairs

~MG grilled special-made burgers on our grill for dinner

~Couch snuggles unwinding for the night

~Game of Thrones and bed

Phew! No wonder it went by so fast! We packed a bunch in. It's always awesome to see everyone and get to spend time together--I really wish that we all lived closer.

I hope your weekend was awesome and fun-filled, too!
