Weekly Recap {9.19.16}

Happy Monday!

I need to first say Happy Anniversary to my hubby! 8 years ago today we got married and it was the absolute best day! We are going to show the kids our wedding video tonight since the older ones might actually be into it :)

We had such a great week - here's what we were up to

We had some awesome weather which meant park time! These girls love to swing!

Ella and I flew a kite in our backyard and girlfriend had a blast! We need to do this more often

Ella looks so darn adorable on school days (well, every day duh) I just have to snap a pic!

We went on a playdate with my SIL, nephew and new niece and the kids had a blast! This place is awesome, it's an indoor play area for kids all based around firefighters - so fun!

After our playdate we headed to the mall to pick up my wedding band that was fixed and we stopped at the Garrets stand to get popcorn for 67 cents! Their popcorn is AMAZING and we were happy girls

Ella got this guitar from my in laws for her birthday and she loves to play and sing - be still my heart

Friday after school we got outside for a walk - well the bigs scooted around the neighborhood

I love this view

At night we went to our local sports center for Family Fun Night.  Our park district puts it on about twice a year and it's free for residents. They have the soccer fields open, baseball going on, football, basketball, tons of little ride on toys for smaller kids, dodgeball, bingo and an obstacle course set up in the gymnastics area.  The kids had a freaking blast and were so wore out when we left


Saturday during our garage sale, these 3 had their first lemonade stand. Brayden and Ella were so cute asking everyone "would you like some lemonade?" I thought they would be sad when people said no but they weren't and thankfully not too many people did. I mean how could you not buy lemonade from these cuties!!

Saturday night was date night for the hubby and me to celebrate our annivesary. We started with dinner, then hopped over to another restaurant for a drink then went to a comedy club that is in our mall (sounds lame but it's so fun and you enter and exit outside of the mall which helps LOL)

should not have drank this, ha!

We ubered home around midnight and I hit the bed hard and didn't wake up until 2:30am when I heard Ella throwing up.  Again we think it was because she was having a bad coughing fit. We cleaned her up and put new sheets/pillowcases on and she passed right back out and woke up fine.  So weird!

Sunday we relaxed most of the day and stopped by my MIL's house where she was having a garage sale too.

Later in the day I headed to the city to meet up with my friends for dinner.  My friends Mom got us reservations at this pop up diner that is an exact replica of The Max (if you don't know what show this is from, I'm sorry but we can't be friends) and it was AWESOME.

The place looked identical to the show and we were totally living our childhood dreams right there!

I got home around 8 just in time to give kisses to Brayden & Ella before they went to bed and I pretty much collapsed on the couch.

Have a great day, I'll see you tomorrow!


  1. What a great weekend you had!!! And I can't even begin to tell you how jealous I am that you went to The Max!! Seriously! How fun!!!

  2. Oh my gosh happy anniversary to you guys!! You guys look great at your dinner!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. What??? Dinner at the Max? How fun!!!

  4. What a fun weekend. I love when local business have family fun events. It provides us with something new to try as a family of 3.

    Happy Anniversary!

  5. That replica of the max is pretty much the coolest EVER! If only Slater were there :P. I hope y'all have an amazing anniversary!

  6. I love that you guys flew a kite! I haven’t touched a kite in probably 20 years. That’s definitely a fun activity to do with kids! That Family Fun Night is pretty awesome. I swear, either our local towns suck or I just can’t find anything fun going on like that, haha. Sounds like an amazing date night also! Love all the pics!

  7. Girrrrl, I would DIE to go to that place replicating The Max! That is the absolute coolest thing! Do you remember how a couple of years ago they did a pop-up cafe in NYC that replicated Central Perk from Friends?! I begged B to take me up to NYC just to visit it, but we just couldn't make it work. I wish they would do it again soon!

  8. Oh my word - The Max?! Ahhh that show was amazing. Sounds like a perfect weekend!
