Father's Day Weekending

Happy Monday, friends! I hope everyone had a great weekend celebrating the dads in their lives. We had a fun weekend celebrating Brandon with lots of yummy food; I'm back on the eating well train this week. 

The boys and I just hung around the house on Friday morning before Brandon got home from his Summer Friday at 11:30. It's so nice to have lazy mornings sometimes! 

We headed out to lunch at Mi Cocina, then popped in Williams-Sonoma before heading home, where the boys promptly posted themselves on the couch with some popcorn and watched a World Cup game. 

After naps, Brandon took Walker out to play golf for the first time. It was so precious! They got in nine holes while Knox and I made a Target run. 

Friday night once the boys were in bed, Brandon and I couldn't decide what we wanted to eat for supper, so we made a very non-fancy charcuterie plate: fresh-cut watermelon, Wheat Thins, pimento cheese and summer sausage -- and of course, a glass of wine. We picked on that while we watched "A Bad Moms Christmas" and then went to bed. 

Since Sundays are often crazy in our house, we celebrated Father's Day a day early! Walker helped me get breakfast ready: Kodiak Cakes Protein Packed blueberry lemon muffins, cheesy scrambled eggs, watermelon, coffee and mimosas! We served it to Brandon in bed and he watched a few minutes of a World Cup game. (AKA: basically his perfect day, ha!) 

We then opened presents; he got a new pair of sunglasses after losing his to the Gulf of Mexico on our beach trip, these grill prep trays, and a hilarious coffee mug {sold out, but similar here}

We then spent the rest of the morning/afternoon in the pool! 

After we all napped, we took my father-in-law his Father's Day gift, and then came back home and I made a yummy meal for Father's Day! I made The Pioneer Woman's Comfort Meatballs and homemade mashed potatoes, along with my grandmother's famous cherry cream pie recipe. We were super cool and watched a special on Tonya Harding and called it an early night. 

We were up and at 'em and headed to church. The boys all looked so precious, so of course I had to snap a couple of pictures. 

The rest of the afternoon was spent doing super un-fun things: laundry, picking up the house, cleaning a bit, getting our cars cleaned out (how do they become such a mess so quickly!?) and getting things ready for the week. And, I even got to sneak in a nap while Brandon worked out. Happy Father's Day, right?! ;) 

And speaking of this week, the boys both have swimming lessons Monday-Thursday, so I'm excited to see how much they're going to learn! I hope y'all have wonderful weeks!

We've just watched the Tunisia game and just won, just - there was lots of shouting at the TV by my husband! I think your photo was Spain - Portugal? That was amazing football! And lazy mornings are THE BEST! Your Aldi insta story was very good - we got some Grand Cru Champagne from there - it was super good!
