Hello! I am linking up today with Heather, etc. so go right here for more weekend recap posts!
I finished my cute “Waiting for Tom Hanks” novel on Friday after school and then got into this cute book. I am loving it so far. If you like the type of books I like – chick lit, not too heavy, cute stories, but decently written – I have been hitting the jackpot lately. I took some time to sit outside and enjoy the fall weather before the rain hit us on Saturday.
Also, I realized I hit 400 posts on Friday! I have only been blogging for a year and a half but I have almost always posted 5 a week. Who knew I had that much to say? Ha!
But, seriously, this is my creative outlet. I don’t spend as much time as I know other bloggers spend. You can tell by my real life, non-professional photos. I like it this way. I do not want this to feel like a job nor do I have more than the 30 minutes or so a day to devote to my hobby.
Our boys were super busy and social this weekend and this left hub and I to our own devices. I picked up Taco Luchador Friday night and enjoyed my chicken taco. The boys went to the theatre haunted house. Jack acted in it and Mason went to support him and to enjoy the festivities. Apparently Mason was a big hit with Jack’s theatre friends and I thought it was sweet that Mason wanted to go.
Do I look like an Instagrammer or what? Black Hunter boots (at least 7 years old!) in the wet leaves on Saturday morning. The boys went to theatre and play rehearsal (Jack) and to help a friend study for the ACT (Mason) and Tom and I went out for breakfast. Well, we tried but Biscuit Belly had a line out the door in the rain!
So, Tom showed me his company’s project in a high rise hotel. Look at that view!
We walked around in the rain downtown for a bit. This is a giant whiskey barrel that I hadn’t noticed before. Don’t you love exploring your city?
I had been dying to see our new Omni hotel and its market on the first floor. It is so cool!
Saturday night Mason turned his pope costume from a school project into a Greek God with a laurel headpiece, an empty bottle of wine and a baggie of grapes and Jack was Pac Man which he has had for years.
And, we finally got to try the new restaurant with our friends that sadly replaced my old tapas restaurant that I loved called Artesano.
Sunday morning was work, work, work. I did school work for a couple of hours, did meal prep, laundry, cleaned – it was all much needed!
But, then we were able to take the boat out and it just worked out that our friends could come, too!
This was a fundraiser for breast cancer where you tried to catapult a pumpkin into a target. It was interesting to watch!
These floaties were the targets.
I mean, I just wanted to bottle up today’s weather!
I reluctantly came home and came back to reality. I ordered dinner from Door Dash because my meal prep had not included dinner! Oops!
Here is my referral code for you and I to get $10 if you have Door Dash in your area. It’s pretty cool. You can order from tons of different restaurants. I think you just need to highlight the link and copy and paste into your browser and it will take you there. Thank you in advance if you use it!
How was your weekend? Hope you had a great one! Thanks for reading and hope you will come back tomorrow!
