Weekend Wrap-Up

Finally some gorgeous weather this weekend! I've been dying for it. We have had weeks of cold, gloomy days which I love when they are sporadic but hate when they stick around too long.

We took full advantage of it Saturday and spent the day running around, looking at future home sites for our next home. We have been looking for quite a while but after months of not finding anything we loved, we decided to give it a rest in hopes "the one" would pop up later. Thank goodness we did because we found 2 lots that would be perfect and one of them is my absolute dream. I couldn't sleep Saturday just thinking about it. We still have a lot of things that have to go right for it to work out but I'm praying it does.
Carter's Baby Boy Clothes
Sunday we decided to take B to our church for the first time since he did so well at the in-laws' church Christmas-Eve. We took him into the sermon with us (because I am still not ready to leave him with a stranger) and everyone seemed to love having a baby in service. Especially the sweet lady who sat next to us who B flirted with the whole time. Such a ladies' man.

After service was over, we went home, changed into some comfy clothes and went on a walk with the family. It is one of our favorite things to do. And poor Bennington has been trying to dart out our front door every time we leave so we knew he needed some fresh air too.

By the time we got home B was ready for his nap so we put him to sleep and I started prepping our food and my juices for the week. D bought me a juicer for Valentine's Day last year (Don't worry. It's what I asked for. ;P) and I used it for the first time last week. I don't know what took me so long to use it but I am loving my green juice in the mornings. It makes me feel like I am doing something good for myself even if the rest of the day is a mess.
Kale Cucumber Spinach and Apple Juice
And Sunday night we had a few friends over for the UFC fight, hot wings, and adult beverages... It's all about balance, right?

  1. Summer Ann,

    Bennington is so adorable! Such a unique name... will be very distinguished when he grows up... but for now, what a little gent in his plaid, vest, and mocs! Too cute! Glad you all got some nice weather and enjoyed the weekend!
    Over here in Chicago, we're still in January (and probably all the way through to April) winter woes... after the holidays, I'm always like, "okay Mother Nature, you can take Old Man Winter back now!"

    1. Oh I can see where that post was confusing. Bennington is our puppy and B (Boston) is our little guy. And yes it is a very distinguished name haha! I wanted our dog to have a preppy name since he is a Labrador. I feel like it fits him.

      We love Chicago but I am sure the weather can a downer in the winter. At one point we were thinking about moving there for Dustin's job but we went to look at apartments in the winter and we were like "No thanks". ;P We are way too accustomed to the warmer climate.

  2. The weather was amazing this weekend! Our puppy has been the same way and we got out of the house for several nice long walks. Spring is right around the corner and I can hardly wait!

  3. What a cute little family you have! I just came across your blog, love your hair tutorial as well!
