I hope y'all had a wonderful weekend! I'm linking up with B Loved Boston & Champagne and Suburbs for their "Weekending" linkup. 

Since I'm off on Fridays for six weeks this summer, I'm going to start my weekends on Thursdays on this little ol' blog! :) 

I had a really late meeting on Wednesday night and didn't get home until after 10 p.m., so Walker and I had a late start going into work {and school} on Thursday morning. I loved getting to hang out with my sweet boy a little later and not be so rushed in the morning, especially since I didn't get to see him once I dropped him off at day care at 7:45 a.m. Wednesday! I missed him!

Thursday night, we just relaxed, did laundry and had homemade pizza for supper. 

Brandon gets half days on Fridays during the summer, so he went into work for the morning while Walker and I hung out around the house. We played, cleaned and napped…overall, we were just huge bums while Daddy was at work! 

And I mean, how adorable is this Polo from Walker's great-aunt!? 

Once Brandon got home from work, we had lunch and then went over to my in-law's for Walker's very first swim. I was definitely thinking he would scream and just hate it, but he didn't! He was so laid back and chill; he didn't really make a peep! I truly think he didn't know what to think, but either way, it was absolutely adorable. 

He's rocking his Old Navy swim shorts and rashguard top {no longer available}; Target bucket hat {also no longer available}; and SwimWays Baby Spring Float from Target {similar}. 

After his swim, we just put him into a diaper and gave him his bottle on the covered porch at my in-law's. It was so hot, so I decided not to subject him to clothes outside…and it's only mid-June! Welcome to summer in Texas. It's only going to get hotter from here! Ugh.

Side note: Why does he look so big in this picture!? Stop growing!

After Walker's swim, we came home and relaxed, and the little bug let us sleep in until 7 a.m. Saturday! Woo! {It's the little things.}

I got to use my Mother's Day gift: a facial bright and early Saturday morning at Hand & Stone! I have had facials before, but seriously, this one took the cake! It was so wonderful and I actually fell asleep, which I have never done in a facial before. I will definitely be going back! 

I spent the rest of the morning going to the grocery store and running a few errands, and we just spent the day hanging out with Walker. Brandon has been immersed in the World Cup and our TV has been on soccer since the first game on Friday. Is anyone else's significant other into this, too?! 

Walker has really been into taking his little cat naps on us on the weekends, and as much as I know I should get up and put him in his crib, I just can't do it! I mean, look at those gorgeous eyelashes! 

I made Brandon's Father's Day supper on Saturday night {pork tenderloin, sautéed spinach, roasted red potatoes and squash casserole…and yes, this is his plate!} and then I went to get a much-needed pedicure. It cracked me up because I did more "me" things this weekend than he did, and it was Father's Day weekend! Oops. I have a good husband.

We did our usual Sunday routine, but of course celebrated extra since it was Father's Day! I didn't take a picture, but I brought Brandon breakfast in bed: scrambled eggs with avocado on the side, cinnamon rolls, toast and orange juice. 

My aunt came over in the evening and just played with Walker while we visited. 

And if you follow me on Instagram, you have already seen these photos, but I just had to share them again. Happy Father's Day to my amazing husband and precious Dad! We love you and thank you for loving Walker and me so well. 

Happy Week! 



  1. I cant get over the sweet picture of him mid yawn!! That is so precious!! thanks for linking up with us!

  2. Yes it is World Cup all the time over here too!! Glad I'm not alone ;) Enjoy your Fridays off!!

  3. My hubs always has the World Cup on! I think it's ridiculous, because any other time he's not interested in soccer. I guess he has to have one sport to watch since basketball is over. That dinner looks yummy! And your little guy is not helping my baby fever over here! So cute!

  4. Jealous of your weekends starting on Thursday! You little peanut is so precious! Thanks for linking up with us! xo
