Happy Monday, friends! We had a super low-key weekend as it rained a lot here. We spent a lot time in pajamas, taking naps while it poured outside and enjoyed a lot of much-needed family time. Here's a bit of what we were up to: 


+ Brandon had his lovely Summer Friday, where he got home by 11:30 a.m. It's so nice to have a few extra hours with him to kick off the weekend. 

+ He took Walker on a little surprise "date," -- some one-on-one time to Medieval Times before school starts next week. He had a ball and I'm so glad they got to do something special. 

+ Meanwhile, Knox and I had a little date of our own! We ran to Old Navy (before I remembered it was Texas Tax-Free Weekend and quickly grabbed what we needed and got out of there as quickly as possible), and then had dinner at his choice, Chick-fil-A. We then came home and watched "Fireman Sam," gave him a bath and got him to bed right as Brandon and Walker got home. 

I got a lot of questions on Instagram about this towel. We got it four years ago from Target, but here is the newer version!


+ It was a rainy morning, so Brandon made breakfast, the boys donned Medieval Times crowns and I cleaned the entire house, top to bottom. It was so nice to sit on the couch with a cup of coffee after all that cleaning! We all took 2+ hour naps in the afternoon, which was amazing. 

+ Saturday evening, we all got dressed and headed over to my in-laws' house for little family dinner and get together. We all visited for a while, let the kids play and stay up well past their bedtimes and came home with full bellies and tired eyes! 

My shirt is here and earrings are from my mom's store 


+ We did absolutely nothing all morning. Brandon had an early flight, so we spent some time together and dropped him off at the airport. The boys took naps, we watched Disney movies on TV and played in the afternoon, and we're gearing up for a fun last week of summer before school starts next week!

Have wonderful weeks!
