Happy Monday, friends! Hopefully you're bright eyed and bushy-tailed and ready to take on the week ahead!
My weekend was pretty low key overall, but still relaxing which was wonderful!
My highlights included:
~Lots of sweet messages from so many of you on my Friday post about my dad. Thank you for all of your kind words and thoughts.
(With the exception of one person who felt like that post was an appropriate time to ask me if I was hosting any Fall parties so that he could market me glow sticks #asshat)
~Friday afternoon HH with two of my friends over Mexican food and margs to celebrate making it through the first week of school!
~MG coming back from being in London for the week!
~Lots of couch snuggles to make up for the days he was gone :)
~Saturday morning MG washed both of our cars (good man) and then helped some neighbors take down a tree in their front yard #malebonding #powertools
~We grabbed lunch out at Cosi and then went to Ashley Furniture to take a look at dining room tables and chairs, but didn't find anything that we liked (plus their "buy one get one free sale was a joke since they had jacked up all of their prices to be double what they normally were--not really a sale when you do that, a-holes!)
~Stopped at DSW and found these adorable gold/nude heels. I love how dainty they are, especially for my skinny little ankles!
~MG worked on and practiced his best man speech for the wedding next weekend--I think he's gonna do great!
~Finished Harry Potter and The Cursed Child. Not my favorite, but it was ok. More in-depth review to come in the future.
~We made pesto grilled cheese sandwiches for dinner, with a side of homemade zucchini tots. So much yum!! (recipe for the tots to come!)
~Watched the movie The Fundamentals of Caring with Paul Rudd, which was well done--we both liked it. And then followed it up with the comedy special for Ali Wong which was really funny!
~Reflected on 9/11 15 years ago. Where I was, the memories I have from that day, and the prayers I have for all of the families who lost someone that day.
~Meal prepped, ran errands and got ready for an afternoon of football watching (and some couch napping--oops!) :)
~Got a pedicure so my feet will be wedding-ready next weekend, too!
~Grabbed Chipotle for dinner, because yum!
~Took an after-dinner family walk since the weather was finally pleasant and beautiful. And we had to work off that Chipotle ;)

Today is my first full week implementing my schedule and getting to see my kiddos at work consistently. It's gonna be a crazy busy day but I'm hopeful that it's going to be lots of fun too!
Hoping your week was restful and fun, and that your Monday isn't too painful!
