Happy Monday! Linking up with Biana and Meghan today.

I found some really cute stuff at Home Goods during my lunch break and came home after work and styled it; it's slowly but surely coming together in our house!  

Walker came down with a summer cold {aren't those the worst?!} and fought us going to sleep Thursday night, and then was up at 6 a.m. on Friday morning. So, I took him outside to run around after breakfast, and he hopped right into his little plastic pool in the bottom half of his pajamas with Oliver right there trying to jump in the pool with him...all before 7 a.m. That's our real life, y'all! 

He "helped" me do some stuff around the house, and then was my little grocery store companion. When I told him it was "time to go bye-bye," he ran in his room and got his little Texas Rangers hat and ran out into the kitchen and said, "Bye bye!" I melted. {And please ignore my clothes "hanging" to dry on the back of our kitchen chairs!} 

Brandon has half-days on Fridays in the summer, so he came home early. I'm going to miss when these end! 

Brandon's mom and her best friend, who is in town from Mississippi, came over to see Walker; then I got a haircut; and we just lounged around and were complete lazy bums, as evidenced by my child hanging out on the couch: 

Friday night, Brandon and I had a little date night at home and had some wine and watched "The Other Woman," which was stupidly funny. I'm glad we didn't pay for it, though; I just recorded it off HBO and was thankful I didn't waste money on it. ;) 

We lazed around all morning, which was so nice! When Walker woke up from his afternoon nap, he was thrilled to see Brandon had brought him a little basketball goal for his tiny plastic pool. {Seriously, we look like the Beverly Hillbillies with all this crap in our backyard!} 

That evening, we went over to my in-law's house for a family dinner to celebrate my father-in-law's retirement. It was a fun time with family eating a yummy meal!

Can't get over this cute little thing in his Baylor smocked John-John!

We lazed around all morning, then had lunch at Chipotle, followed by a Target run. Walker had his first Icee, which he loved and I loved that it bought me some time in the store! 

When we got home, Walker did some finger-painting with this mess-free paint and paper, which was awesome and almost zero clean-up! Clearly he loved it! 

We went back outside three separate times to play in his "pooh," as he says. {And don't worry: we have on sunscreen! It's just so much easier to stick him in a swim diaper and a hat when it's just us three in the backyard!} 

I hope y'all have a great week!


  1. Isn't home goods the best!? Every time I go in there I just want to buy all the things!
    And looking like a hillbilly is worth it as long as baby is having fun, right?? ;-)

  2. Home Goods finds are the best - It's always hit or miss for me and I love when I walk out of the store happy. Walker is so darling in his little pool - looks like he just loves it.

  3. OMG! Poor little man looked like he wasn't feeling good at all! Looks like by the end of the weekend he was back to normal though! So cute!

  4. Yay for some Home Goods finds! Hope Walker is feeling better! We've been hit with the summer cold too. No fun.

  5. Love the Home Goods finds! Hope Walker is feeling better! Looks like you all had a pretty great weekend overall :)

  6. The picture of him in the pool.... So sweet haha!
