Weekend Recap

We had the perfect balance of busy and chill this weekend - and it leaves me feeling refreshed this Monday morning, which is a nice place to be.

On Friday morning, Leo had his "Meet the Teacher" day at his new pre-school! 

He is going to be going to school one morning a week, and it's only for 90 minutes, but I think it will be a great thing for him. In the state of Illinois you need to be 5 by September 1st in order to go to Kindergarten. With Leo being about 3 weeks shy (or he will be in three years), that means he's going to be an older kid in school, and I'm going to have him in preschool for an extra year. I think he'll end up repeating the 3 or 4 year old program, but I'm thankful that his new school accepted him this year without being officially two by 9/1. 

We celebrated that night with dinner at The Cottage with our neighbors/friends and then went to their house after dinner for a night cap which made for a perfect Friday night. 

Saturday morning I was up and at um' to get all of the finishing touches ready for a wedding shower I was hosting that day for one of my best friends. Jenna is getting married in Mexico (Punta Mita actually!!), but unfortantley, due to Zika and being pretty close to my third trimester for her wedding, we aren't able to make it. I wanted to make sure I was able to do something special for her, and so, throwing a Mexican themed shower fit the bill perfectly! 

I don't have any of the pictures we took on a good camera, but here are a few from my phone that I captured before things got too crazy. I kept it pretty simple but the Mexican flags really made it feel like a party, and the taco bar was a huge hit.

I was kind of a genius and decided to cash in on a massage I've been waiting on for that afternoon. As soon as I had the house perfectly cleaned up and wanted to basically collapse, the masseuse rang the door bell. The timing couldn't have been more perfect.

And let me tell you, it was the best massage ever. I played spa music, the boys were out of the house, and my body was so in need I almost cried during it like three times because it felt so good! 

We had leftovers that night and I think I climbed into bed before 8pm! 

Sunday was a gloomy, lazy at home day and I loved every second. I lit my pumpkin candles, had coffee while I meal planned, Joel made chili....it was perfect. 

Fall is coming!!


  1. I am dreaming of fall temps and SO ready! I can't believe how big Theo is, a morning program will be so good for the socialization and gives you a break too. Have a good week love! xo


  2. Sounds like a great weekend!!

    And tell me about your dining table and chairs? I'm on the hunt for one for our new house and am not sure what I'm looking for but yours looks pretty close to what I think I'm looking for.

  3. Yes! A massage sounds amazing! What an awesome treat!
