How was your weekend? Mine was good but went by quickly! I am linking up today with Heather, Tanya, and more here.
We had a full week for teachers last week but students only came for three days. It was the perfect amount for the kids, I think. I have absolutely no photos from Friday! But, I did schedule a grocery pick up for right after school and it was so nice to have food for the weekend and that chore out of the way. For dinner, I made fried rice for the fam, cauliflower rice for me, and heated up a few random leftovers. I was in bed by 9:30!
Saturday morning I did my breakfast vegetable prep so I could have that for breakfast. I had eaten faux Egg McMuffins all week at school.
I enjoyed a leisurely morning of chores and just taking my time.
Jack and Mason had shopped for their college supplies Thursday and I was tickled at how they shopped. They were very smart about buying some things to split even though they are in different dorms. You ever have those moments where you can’t believe your kids are that old and can do what they can do?
I ate my breakfast and did a bit of list making and organizing.
We had plans for some family time on our last weekend with the kids at home. We headed downtown to the Frazier History Museum because Mason had an exhibit there from high school.
Cover your eyes, kids! That is in front of our 21C hotel.
Our downtown is so pretty.
The museum looked so different since I had last been.
It is now the first stop in the Urban Bourbon trail – the distilleries that are in the city. There are lots outside of Louisville, too.
After the museum, we headed to our NULU district. I love this area. We really like Royal’s Hot Chicken.
I ordered an amazing potato dish and only ate half.
After eating, we went into Revelry Boutique.
It was a fun day!
That evening, Tom’s sister and brother in law had a small river party at their boat business.
I made a Ranch Water but used a raspberry Bubly. It was good!
They had a really good singer!
I brought sushi – veggie roll – because I didn’t want to eat cookout stuff. Jack and Mason had sushi at home, too.
This hardly has a flavor but I really like it. You have to like sparkling water, though.
Sunday morning felt awesome! I spent some time on the patio with my coffee, my breakfast, and my new book!
This is so cute so far…. and it has a yellow cover!
I did my meal prep – egg casserole and veggies for breakfast, burrito bowls for lunch, and roasted veggies and turkey sausage for lunch. I may not cook anymore this week because we are having a special dinner for the boys and then they move in on Tuesday. Tom and I will have these two meals and Totino’s pizza for him/Skinny pizza dough for me one night.
I did about an hour of school work. I needed to do more, but I also needed to have fun and feel like I had a weekend!
Then, Mason headed out with friends and Jack did some college packing and laundry while Tom and I saw Free Guy. I liked it. I can’t decided if I liked Jungle Cruise better.
We came home and I read a bit more and we heated up some leftovers for dinner. I think Sunday will always be leftover night to use up restaurant food or home cooked food from the weekend. It seems to work well.
What was the highlight of your weekend?
