Happy Monday! I hope those of you snowed in are enjoying some rest, TV binge-watching and yummy drinks! ;) 

We didn't have any snow, but we had some pretty chilly January weather this weekend. Speaking of weekend, here's how we spent our lazy one: 

Walker and I ran some errands during the day, then decided on a whim to make some homemade sugar cookies since it was so cold and windy outside. Love my sweet kitchen helper, who deemed our cookies "dee-yish-issss!" 

We kept it super low-key and had leftovers for dinner, and Brandon and I watched "The Intern" when Walker went to bed. It was a cute little movie! I love Anne Hathaway and of course pretty much anything Robert DeNiro does. 

Brandon made pancakes for breakfast, and our almost-two-year-old downed 3.5 of them. THREE POINT FIVE. That's more than I can eat! Ha! 

We were so lazy all morning and afternoon, which was amazing after our crazy birthday party weekend last weekend! I did a bunch of cleaning and laundry, ironed some clothes and watched "Grace of Monaco" with Nicole Kidman while Walker and Brandon napped. All I have to say about that movie is: "Eh." 

That afternoon, Brandon had to take his phone to the Apple Store, so we did some shopping and eating out while we waited on his repair. It was some fun, much-needed family time with just the three of us!

Lots of laughs during dinner at Taco Diner

All bundled up after dinner

I have absolutely no pictures from Sunday -- that's how laid back and low-key we were. We went to church; then came home and I made homemade oven-"fried" chicken, smashed potatoes and peas; and then we all napped and watched football on TV. It was such a glorious day doing absolutely nothing! 

I hope y'all have a great week! I can't wait to read about your weekends! 

Linking up with Biana and Meghan


  1. What a great weekend! Sometimes the lazy ones are the best. Love that picture of Walked and the oven mitts - too cute :)

  2. I loved The Intern so much! We actually rented it this weekend, because Nathan hasn't seen it, and you totally just reminded me we forgot to watch it! Whoops! Your weekend looks like absolute perfection with your two boys!! I think I could MAYBE eat 3 pancakes if I was starving but that extra half? No way :) That growing boy is going to eat you at of house and home at some point, girl - might as well get used to it :) :)

  3. He is so darn cute sitting on that counter "helping" you!! Your taco dinner looked like it was a lot of fun! Happy Monday!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  4. Looks like it was a great weekend. Those pancakes look so good. That is so funny Walker ate so many. They must have been very delicious.

  6. Oh my gosh you have the cutest helper in the kitchen!! What a way to make baking mroe fun haha!

  7. Aw, you have such a good helper! Glad he thought the cookies were delicious :)

  8. My favorite kind of weekend! Little time in, little time out, and lots of good family fun!

  9. Sounds like the perfect, cozy little weekend! Can't believe he ate 3.5 pancakes! That's a lot! Also, question for you - do you or did you ever have issues steering your Britax stroller? We are really having issues with ours, especially when we have the infant seat and the diaper bag on it. Grr!

  10. Sounds like the perfect cozy weekend! Love the photo of Walker in the oven mitts - too cute!

  11. Sounds like an amazing weekend, especially after a busy weekend last weekend! Walker is so adorable making the cookies :)

  12. I always love when Walker helps out in the kitchen - such a doll!
