Weekend recap from our house

Happy Monday morning, my friends.

Phew. Now that was a weekend - packed with friends and family and oh-my-gosh calories. Come on in, I'll show you what I mean...


You know, my weekend always starts with Friday night, and this one was a treat. My friend Janae came over with her three-year old twins for ice cream and turtle time. This photo was little miss Kiki's sundae. She didn't want chocolate, caramel, whipped cream or a cherry - just lots and lots of sprinkles.

Whiskers Jay, enjoying the morning paper with Doug.

And speaking of pets, Rex is pretty much settled in. I took a bunch of photos of him this past weekend, and I'll share those later in the week. Here he is snubbing lettuce and carrots: 

My sweet father-in-law turned 80 on Saturday, and we attended a birthday party in his honor. Saturday was spent helping to prepare for the event. A friend of his {who used to be a pastry chef} made all the food, including these over-the-top delicious white chocolate cupcakes. I'll share more about this event later in the week.

Sunday was a whirlwind. We met my FIL and his friend for brunch, I did six loads of laundry, stuff around the house, and I squeezed in an art project as well {can't show all of this until it lands at its destination}.

This morning I am rushed and a little bit frazzled...reminding myself to breathe and relax in my head. I didn't participate in Sian's Storytelling Sunday this month as I knew I wouldn't have time to read all the lovely tales that others had posted. I'm setting my sights on Friday because next weekend I plan to relax and spend some time crafting with my girl C {it will be Mother's Day weekend here in the US}.

Wishing us all a fabulous week
full of blessings and laughter!

Always enjoy hearing about your days! Thanks for sharing your life!

Is it okay that I'm jealous that you get to spend Mother's Day crafting with Carrie while I spend all day driving to/from and attending Sarah's graduation? I know I should be thrilled but my day just sounds so long and boring compared to yours!

You're very welcome all the same :) Thank you for thinking about us!

It certainly looks like a delicious weekend! You are making me hungry (in a good way - I'm all ready to go make something nice for dinner now!)

Mmmm..... Ice cream, cake..... I'm hungry now!! ;)

Sounds like you had a fun time - can't believe this is the first I'd heard about Rex, I'm so behind in my blog visits! And I love how it looks like WJ is really reading the newspaper (though possibly upside down?! Can't see for sure from here!)

Hooray for birthday weekends. I'll take a sprinkle sundae too.

Beverly said...

Your photo makes sprinkles look like a great choice although I have never cared for them. I do wish you would share the cupcakes when you share more about them1

Amy said...

So, Rex is a fussy eater?! I bet he wanted those sprinkles on the ice cream!

Karen said...

Oh what sweet memories you have brought back - making Ice Cream Sundaes with Gracia and her friends.
