Happy Monday! 

I'm linking up with Biana and Meghan today for "Weekending."

I took the day off, which was a really nice change of pace. Walker and I had lunch with Brandon, and then we took Walker to a little feed store next to Brandon's office to let the little guy look at the baby chicks, turkeys and ducks. 

Walker was not sure what to think about all these tiny animals chirping and hopping around, and he kept a pretty safe distance from them at all times. It was so cute. 

Mamas, if you are looking for something fun {and free} for your kids to do, take 'em to a local feed store! I'm telling you, we will be going back - and I can pick up some plants in the process! 

Walker was beat and fell asleep about 10 minutes into our drive home. Poor guy! 

I successfully transferred him to his crib and spent the hour folding laundry and putting sheets on our bed while watching the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" reunion. {Holy crazy, y'all!} 

Friday night, we took supper to our friends who recently had a baby. I made this, which was super easy and always a great meal to take to a new mom - especially if she's nursing! 

I woke up feeling kind of icky - and so did Brandon - so we lazed around for a bit. Then, I took Walker out so Brandon could rest for a bit. 

We started out at another free entertainment spot: PetsMart! Walker loves animals, so we spent about 20 minutes looking at the birds, rodents and cats. Mama wasn't about to stop and gander at the amphibians! Ick! 

After PetsMart, we had a late breakfast at Chick-fil-A. Walker devoured his Chick'n Minis and milk, and I thoroughly enjoyed an iced coffee. 

We came home and spent the rest of the afternoon outdoors; it was such a gorgeous day! Our friends Brandon and Kimmie lost power at their house due to some construction, so they brought their new baby - and some pizza! - over, and we just hung out and visited. 

Walker wore this precious Baylor smocked john-john that my great-aunt made for him to church. Pretty sure he was the cutest kid in the nursery yesterday!

After church, we spent more time outside. It was another beautiful day that just begged for us to be outside. Walker loves bubbles, so Brandon spent a while blowing those for him while the little man alternated between chasing them and playing in his sandbox. 

He and I both then took a 1.5-hour nap, which was glorious. There is nothing better that church, lunch and a nap on Sunday! 

When we woke up, we made a quick trip to Home Depot, where he played around in Brandon's glasses. 

Then, we got fro-yo and sat on the patio. Yum!

We did some work in the yard, and Brandon brought in some rose cuttings from our back garden. He put them in the stemless wine glasses from our wedding, and I love the way they look on our island. 

Brandon installed a new light on our back porch - and I'm so glad he did because the one that was there before was 21 years old...original to this house! I didn't even take a "before" picture because it was that ugly. 

We say on the patio and enjoyed being outside. Walker was showering me with kisses, which of course I loved. 

We got Walker bathed and in bed, then watched the ACM Awards, which were held in Dallas at AT&T Stadium. We loved that they started out with George Strait singing, "All My Exes Live in Texas." That man is timeless! 

I've got a busy week ahead - including our biggest event of the year on Friday night. But! I'm taking Monday off, so I am just keeping my eyes on the prize. Ha! 

Hope y'all have a great day and a fabulous week! 


  1. Walker is a mover and a shaker - chillin with his peeps (and duckies - see what I did there?) at the feed store, and then going to see the animals at Petsmart? That sounds like so much fun - even though the cat in the above picture does not look too pleased!!!

    Happy Monday!

  2. Looks like little man had lots of animal interaction this weekend! That is a great free entertainment idea! Hope your Monday is off to a great start, lady!
