Friday night I went to dinner with some friends from work downtown. I am so thankful for these girls and so happy that I have coworkers who I actually want to hangout with outside of the office- they are so fun!

Saturday morning we did stuff around the house and I made it out to three different grocery stores in under two hours...on a Saturday morning...I'd say that's pretty good! Saturday afternoon we went to my parents for my cousin's birthday party and it was a lot of fun! She wanted to do all the fall fun things, so that's what we did. We had our first outside fire of the season to keep us warm and for the hot dogs and s'mores. She had some friends over too, which she really enjoyed and she told me later that this was the best birthday, EVER! Woo hoo for turning 12!

We missed my other sister, who was at the beach for fall break!

My dad has always made a pretty fall setup in our yard every year, and this year he made a huge one. How cute is this?!
 a closer look at this...part of a tree that he hallowed out to sit flowers down in- so cute!

I also got to get some of the sweetest baby cuddles in from my cousin. He is almost 5 months now!

On Sunday morning I taught the kindergarten class at church and they were just the sweetest and funniest group of kiddos! I am so excited to be teaching them some this quarter! After church we came home and I made a big pot of chicken and dumplings- cooler weather means all the comfort food! Sunday was also Reagan's gotcha day (I can't believe we brought her home 2 years ago this past weekend!) and our best friends birthday. Since they were in town we celebrated her birthday with milkshakes at The Legendairy Milkshake Bar! So fun and the shakes were delicious. Matthew and I definitely split one though, because they were HUGE! We got 'Rolling in the Cookie Dough'.

We ended the weekend with a big pot of chili!

Such a fun fall weekend!

  1. Sounds like such a fun weekend!! Love your dad's fall setup!

  2. What a full and fun weekend! Getting grocery shopping out of the way first thing on the weekend is such a great feeling. Especially when you have multiple stops!
