Happy Monday! We had a fun, full weekend, so let's get to it! 

Linking up with Biana and Meghan today

I met my in-law's at an awesome park near their house so Walker could play and they could spend some time with him. He had so much fun and bawled when we had to leave! 

We had a lazy rest of our day and evening. We ate leftovers for dinner and Brandon and I watched "Unbroken" after Walker went to bed. {We weren't fans, which was disappointing because we had heard such great things!} 

We had absolutely gorgeous fall weather, so we went on a walk and stopped off at our local track to let the boys play soccer and football and run around like crazies. ;) 

That afternoon was our friend Brandon's 30th birthday party. His wife did such a great job hosting the party at their house with every food and drink you could imagine! 

If you follow me on Snapchat {brittwhit87} you saw that this is how Walker decided to hang out during the party. On the floor. *Sigh*

That evening, we went on another walk; I made my Aunt Katherine's chili; and we watched more "Friday Night Lights." 

We met our friends Ashley, Steve and their daughter Caroline at the State Fair of Texas! I have lived in Texas my entire life -- and in Dallas for nearly seven years -- and I had never been to the Fair before yesterday! 

Even though it was very overwhelming and there were a ton of people everywhere, we had a great time! We were so shocked at the generosity of the people there: we were given free tickets by the people we were chatting in line; Brandon only had to pay four tickets {instead of 20} to ride the log ride with Walker; I got a free refill of my giant lemonade from a sweet concessions worker; and she let me stand there and drink it and refilled me a bit more. As Pat Green said, "I like Texas…!

Walker and sweet Caroline 

Brandon ate a milk chocolate pecan bacon on a stick. Surprisingly, it wasn't bad!

We got home and Walker took a three-hour nap; it was glorious! I even fell asleep on the couch for a little bit, too. 

He and Brandon washed both of our cars; I made this for a quick and easy dinner; and then we watched some of the Cowboys game before calling it an early night. 

I hope y'all had a wonderful weekend! I can't wait to read all about them! 


  1. Your weekend was filled with sunshine which, in and of itself, I'm envious of! :) Looks like it was a great one!
    Funny side note: the pic of your husband and your friend whose birthday it was, as I glanced really quickly, he looked like MY husband (who also has that same checkered shirt) haha

  2. What a seriously perfect weekend!!! Love that you guys had so much fun!! That chili looks mighty good! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. I loved watching your snaps of the fair - such a fun event! I wish it would still be going on when we journey down to Texas. The chili, candle (love that flavor) and Friday Night Lights night is my favorite - I'm too obsessed with Friday Night Lights right now and find myself watching with any minute of free time that I have.

  4. Yum! Chili sounds like the perfect meal for this weekend...we had gloomy and rainy weather!

  5. Sounds like a suepr fun weekend! We are making chili tomorrow and I am so excited!!

  6. Wow! You all had a great weekend & it was filled with a lot of outside time too!
