How was your weekend? Mine felt like summer! I am linking up today with Heather, Tanya and many more right here.
Here are the highlights…
Thursday afternoon I did a test run of the Mexican Sangria Mule cocktail. I didn’t love the combo wine and tequila and ginger beer. It looked pretty, though.
Friday morning I took Jack to Bed, Bath, and Beyond to start college dorm room shopping. Their selection was not great so we didn’t buy anything and headed to Target.
The school supply section made me sad. Jack picked up a few notebooks.
Then, he did find his comforter, sheets, and towels. He wasn’t very fun to shop with because he was being so practical. He kept saying he didn’t need much and that he could use a lot of what we already had at home!
Friday afternoon my two college besties came over for a patio happy hour. I made sangria for two of us and the Sangria mule for my friend that really likes mules. She liked it!
I made us individual snack plates.
Then, I brought these out for “dessert”!
Friday night the boys wanted Mediterranean. We split two meals between the four of us.
Chicken kabob, rice, and fries
Saturday morning I decided to run to Hobby Lobby.
Look at the fall stuff!
I bought some clearance things for the patio and napkin rings for my cloth napkins.
Then, Tom, Ernie and I went out on the river for a picnic lunch.
After a while, there were so many boats in the cove where we like to go.
Proscuitto and tomato sandwiches
Ernie did a lot of swimming and then was worn out.
Tom was super happy that baseball started up this weekend and he watched a bit when we got home.
I forgot to take a picture but I picked up Cheddar’s for dinner and then we watched this as a family. I liked it but it wasn’t what I was expecting. The boys really liked it. Tom did not like it.
Sunday morning I read a bit on the porch. I am getting into this book!
Then, I met Tom at the river after he finished paddle boarding and we headed toward the city this time.
I didn’t tell Tom I was getting us Ale 8 slushies for the boat. Ale 8 is a drink from Tom’s hometown that tastes like gingerale. The gas station near our house has a slushie machine with this drink. He was texting to ask about it as I was getting back in my car after getting them!
This is what it looks like.
I got us McDonald’s biscuits and we had a fancy boat brunch!
We like to float with these things – we call them diapers but some call them saddles. You are able to sit upright in the water.
We just floated for a long time and it was nice. Ernie couldn’t come the second day because we dropped the valve for his doggy ramp in the water and are waiting on a replacement to come in the mail this week.
Out of nowhere it started pouring and we high tailed it out of there.
So, we had a very summer weekend with two boat days.
How was your weekend? Any highlights?
I have two more weeks of semi-freedom before work. I found out I have a meeting this week and need to do some professional development. We also have some appointments for the boys and need to finish dorm shopping. I’m taking Mason today. What we can’t find in stores we will order from Amazon. I know I’m late but I wasn’t positive move in would happen.
Thanks for reading!
