Happy Monday! Linking up with Biana and Meghan today. 

I left work before 2 p.m., ran some errands and then went to pick Walker up from school. It had been a really long week - Brandon had been gone since Sunday on business - and this mama was ready for a nap! Walker and I came home, played a little and took a quick Friday afternoon nap; it was heavenly! 

Brandon's flight got in {hall-e-luj-ah}, we did some laundry, ordered a pizza and had a glass of wine before catching up on our shows from the week and hitting the hay. 

We woke up, played and cleaned a bit, and then Walker and I took a nap together while Brandon went to the gym. I cleaned a bit, and then made a ton of food for Walker. I think we're set for a while! 

I am so proud of Walker: he eats peas, butternut squash, sweet potatoes, quinoa, avocado, carrots, green beans, pears, apples, mangoes, peaches, pumpkin, bananas and yogurt! I am still going strong making all of his food, which Brandon and I are really proud of. It's totally a personal choice, but it's a cost-effective, healthy one that works for our budget! 

Later, my in-law's and brother- and sister-in-law came over with our niece and nephew! It was fun getting the three cousins together.

Walker looks like he is giving Ellie Kate a right hook right here!

After they left, I made homemade meatloaf, mashed potatoes and peas, and we watched college football {Yay, Mississippi State - my father-in-law went there, so I guess we can cheer for them! ;) } 

We went to the early service at church, and I will say it was the best morning of worship I have experienced in a while. Our pastor, who has been on sabbatical for 12 weeks, was back today and man, have we missed him. It was wonderful. 

After we came home and had leftovers, Walker and I took a nap together. Then, Brandon told me to go get a pedicure. I made a little pit stop to Gap to get Walker a few things that were on sale for 30 percent off the entire purchase {shhh!}, and then came home to get ready for the week. 

This sweet lil' blue eyes - who is looking more and more like my grandfather every day - even did something big this weekend: he started crawling, just over a week shy of his 8-month birthday! I was so excited for him! I can't believe our sweet little man has already hit the crawling stage; mama isn't ready for that just yet! {Waaaaah!} 

I hope y'all have a wonderful week! 


  1. Uh oh, he's mobile!! Sounds like a great weekend lady and I'm loving the new look of the blog!! Have a great week!

  2. I can't even get over that first photo of him sleeping - he is just adorable!! What a great weekend - love that all the cousins were able to get together! Happy Monday!

  3. Ohh Walker is so adorable!! It's definitely a game changer once they are mobile. I'm so impressed with all the good food he will eat and all the hard work you put into making it!! I made some, but I definitely got lazy. I think it's so awesome to do though!

  4. What a little cutie! Looks like you definitely have a ton of food all ready to go - it's great that he already has such a diverse appetite!
