Happy Monday! This is our last few days before school starts on Thursday (Pre-K for Walker and two-day 2's for Knox), so we're hopefully off to do some fun things early this week. But here's a little bit of what we were up to this weekend: 


+ We picked Brandon up from the airport after a week away {hallelujah!} and went to have brunch. Really, it was lunch, but we were grateful our local breakfast place serves breakfast fare until 2 p.m. ;) Chocolate milk and chocolate chip waffles + bacon for the boys; chicken and waffles for Brandon; and California Eggs Benedict for me and all was right in our world. 

And yes, in case you're wondering, we fell off the Keto wagon this last week with both of us traveling, but we're back on it today! 

+ The boys swam with Brandon after their naps and I picked up cookies for a baby sprinkle I was helping host on Saturday. 

+ We watched most of "Coco" together as a family, and once the boys were in bed, Brandon and I watched what felt like a million episodes of "Bachelor in Paradise" to get caught up. Then I experimented with my new microneedling tool before heading to bed. {Note: Loved the tool! I feel like I can already tell a difference in my skin in terms of smoothness after only three uses.} 


+ I helped throw a little baby sprinkle for my friend Emily {we went to high school together}, who is expecting a baby boy next month. She already has a little girl, and it was so fun to celebrate this baby boy and his mommy! Can't wait to meet him and love on him so soon!

I wore this dress which I just love! 

+ I took a giant nap after the shower, which was so welcomed! We had some random pop-up storms in the evening, so the boys had a ball running around outside in the rain while Brandon and I sat on the covered patio laughing at their sheer delight over something as simple as rain. To be a kid again! 


+ We went to church, where it was Promotion Sunday! Walker is officially in the Pre-K class and Knox is in the older 2's class and I just can't believe it. 

+ We came home for lunch, cleaning, laundry and -- glorious naps. Walker asked to nap with Brandon and me and so we let him...but he booted us out with his snoring. We were giggling at the "King of the Castle" -- a four-year-old in a big ol' King-sized bed. ;)

+ I figured since we were off the Keto wagon, I might as well go ahead and bake some chocolate chip cookies. Ha! 

+ The boys swam while I folded laundry and got supper made {I made this yummy low-carb "spaghetti"}. We had a glass of wine and watched some TV before calling it a night. 

I hope y'all have wonderful weeks!
