Weekend Recap & Back to School!

We had a great weekend, friends.
It really was fun.
Nothing major was planned, but we spent Friday through
Sunday all together...minus Trysten,
who was with his mom...and being together...harmoniously together...was nice.

Friday was Carter and Preston's Meet the Teacher night at their new school.
They were so excited, and when they both saw me sign up to volunteer in their respective classrooms, you would have thought I had just bought and given them the most wonderful gift.
It made me so happy.

Carter is in 1st grade this year.
Sweet boy.
Preston is in 4th grade.
He was ecstatic to learn he will be switching classes this year between 2 teachers.
He's big time now, people.
"The Teenager" had a baseball scrimmage Friday night and loved every minute of it.
He hasn't played in a few seasons but was able to pick right back up where he left off.
 Look at my boy pitch and strike his opponent out!
Next at bat, Austin!
I took this pic during Austin's game.
Preston's looks are really changing.
Handsome boy.
Saturday was a big day at our house....and no, it had nothing to do with the THREE baseball practices Ryan and I carted our crew around to...it was special because it was Ryan's 35th birthday!
The boys and I bought him a really nice golf shirt from the
pro shop at the golf club Ryan's parents belong to in the neighborhood,
and we sang happy birthday to him with a candle in the steak he grilled Saturday night.
It was a fun night!
Happy birthday, baby!

Sunday was laid back too.
The boys rode bikes, we hit the pool for a bit, Austin rode a go kart with a neighbor friend,
I unloaded my fall decor from the attic.
It's now sitting in the dining room, waiting to makes its appearance.
Ryan thinks I'm crazy.
Can't wait.
I made LOTS of frames...by the way, if anyone else would like to order one, let me know!
I am going to have to slightly adjust my pricing a tad due to JoAnns increasing the cost of the frames...and I am adding glass to them since they don't come with, but other than that, if you have already ordered one, please know I am working on yours!
Thanks, ladies!
At the end of the day, it was time for dinner, laying out clothes for the first day of school, and bedtime!
Insert deep breath here....it feels so nice to get back into a routine.
I love it.

I woke the boys up early this morning for breakfast.
I reminded myself of my mother this morning.
Cooking eggs.
Cinnamon rolls in the oven.
Milk poured with napkins next to their plates.
Thank you, Ryan for working so hard so that I can experience this!
Before heading out the door, I caught this little man putting on cologne.
You know...gotta smell good for the ladies.
Time to go!
That's it!
It feels very strange sitting in my house alone this morning.
Here's to a new adventure!
Happy Monday, friends!!

How exciting! Getting to stay home with your boys! I'm sure it's a job and needs full attention so glad you can do it!
I'm excited about Fall too!! woot woot!
My favorite time of the year! Oh.. I turn 35 on Sunday :)

Cologne?!? What a goofball! Hilarious. Gotta keep those ladies guessin.
I always feel like I'm in the kitchen making a snack, a meal, a dessert, a lunch. But looking at those boys' plates, I realize I've got it good. Boys eat like crazy. Especially cute growing ones!
I can't believe all your fall decor is waiting! So funny, Alice. Hopefully it will attract some cooler weather...
Happy Birthday to Ryan!!

Cute frames!

Handsome boys!

I have always loved being a working mom but I just a tinge of jealousy reading this post. Maybe one day I will get to be a real mom too. This will be a great year for you and the boys.

Happy Birthday Ryan!
