Nice Lil "Us" Weekend

Today is my Mama's birthday!  Happy Birthday dear Mother of mine!!!!!!  Love you!

We had a nice weekend.  One that really was just us and that was nice.

Who is excited for the Lilly sale today?!  I can't wait!

I laid in the hammock while Mills chilled waiting for Kevin to get home on Friday night. (Kevin cut the grass Saturday ha!)

That night we went to Firebirds for dinner.  We had been craving a steak, salad and baked potato and that's what we both got.  So full but so good.  

Saturday began with my usual Flywheel, Farmer's Market and taking Mills to see Kevin at work.  Kevin's working every Saturday now.  Well he always works 7 days a week but he goes into his office on Saturdays now.  

Then I got this picture of my niece Anna Kate.  She had called me on Friday while I was at work and we FaceTimed.  She sounded so grown up!  Then this!  She lost her top front tooth!

I actually took the time to go to our neighborhood pool for the very first time all summer.  No one was there (except the lifeguard) for the first hour then some other people came.  It was nice!

I went home when Kevin texted me he was done with stuff on his list he wanted to get knocked out.  We played with our buddy in the muddy redneck pool for awhile.  He loved it.

Saturday night we attended a surprise party for one of Kevin's work guys.  We were obviously the youngest folks there but it was really nice being there celebrating him.  

It was in the neighborhood across from us so we just drove over.

Sunday = hang time and recoup.  I made pesto for the first time with basil from our yard.  Our food processor that intimidates me so much made it in point two seconds.  

Mills got an early birthday present...a monkey.

I have a new recipe to share this week too.  It's a super easy appetizer that I learned from one of the girls in my neighborhood.

On the road today so I'll chat with you girls (and Dad) soon!

I need to get Jax a pool and see how he likes it. He LOVES chasing the waves in the ocean, but hasn't been to a place with a pool yet. I mean, that muddy brown water looks so refreshing :)
