Happy Monday, friends! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. We had a really nice weekend at home and it was nice to not travel after two weekends of it! Here's a bit of what we were up to: 


+ The boys and I had a little donut date and they got to wear their jammies. They loved it! They got to do a lot of playing outside when we got home, and then we had a lazy afternoon. 

Brandon's boss told him to go home early on Friday afternoon (a rare treat!) so we got to start out weekend a few hours early. We had dinner at Rā Sushi and then grabbed some macarons from 'Lette Macarons to take home for dessert. 

Once the boys were in bed, Brandon and I started the latest season of "House of Cards," and let's just say that I'm really missing Kevin Spacey on the show. It's just not the same without Frank Underwood!


+ Walker and I went to Betsy's birthday party, which was an adorable Madeleine theme. Emily is such a great hostess and everything was just so cute! 

+ Brandon and Knox were busy getting lots of little projects done at home, and had made a run to Lowe's and Ace Hardware by the time we got home. They finished their projects while I cleaned and we made chili for supper, followed by more "House of Cards" in 8:30 p.m. Ha! 


+ I was supposed to volunteer in Walker's Sunday School class, but some wires got crossed and I ended up not getting to do it. But I still got this cute picture before we left. ;) 

+ We had a very lazy afternoon: leftovers for lunch, a fire in the fireplace, naps, Instacart delivery and football on TV. We got a big cold front yesterday and last night, and it's only supposed to be a high of 46* (and pouring rain today) so they bundled up yesterday to go outside and play. (You know you're a Texan when...) 

I hope y'all have wonderful weeks! 


As a reminder, Jessi and I will be back Wednesday sharing an awesome Christmas gift guide, and you'll be able to link up with us and share yours, too. See y'all Wednesday for that! #ohwhatfun
