Weekending: Last One for April

It's Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. We had a great one and spent so much time outside, which was so welcomed. Here's a peek into our weekend: 


+ We met our neighbor and her girls at Station Ice House for dinner. Her husband is a pilot and was flying, so he wasn't able to join, but we had so much fun! We are so grateful for great neighbors! 


+ It was our neighborhood's semi-annual garage sale, so my neighbor and I loaded up the kids to walk the neighborhood to see if we could find anything. We didn't find anything for ourselves, but the kiddos got a couple of toy treasures. ;) Brandon stayed at home and got a ton of yard work done while we were out and about, and Knox "helped" him mow the yard when we got back home from our walk. 

+ We spent the afternoon crossing tons of small house projects off our list, making a trip to Lowe's, and rounded it out with a visit to Frios Gourmet Pops, which was a nice treat! 

+ The boys both took epic naps (2.5 hours for Walker and three for Knox!) and then decided they wanted to swim when they woke up. It honestly started as them putting their feet in on our little island, then wading in, and then full-on swimming (in undies, no less). It was a chilly 75* in the pool, but they didn't seem to mind. We are so looking forward to summer! 

My Nana got them their towels for Easter from Pottery Barn Kids. This is Knox's and this is Walker's

+ We are back on the low-carb train (where and when we can), so I made this casserole for supper and we called it an early night. 


+ We went to church + Sunday School, came home for leftovers on the patio, and then the boys and I took naps while Brandon did some more stuff outside. He can't sit still! ;) 

+ Post-naps, we made a{nother} trip to Lowe's, where I found these two little stands that I'm using as side tables for our patio furniture. 

+ The boys did lots of playing outside while I made these muffins, did some laundry and made an easy supper: sweet potatoes topped with coleslaw mix, some brisket (that my Nana had given us to keep in the freezer for an easy meal like this one!), and some BBQ sauce and served with a side salad. So easy and yummy! 

+ We had a lazy evening watching "You vs. Wild" with the boys on Netflix (they love it!) and calling it an early night. 

I hope everyone has great weeks!

  3. Your kiddos are just the cutest!! We have had that same mower since Bowen started walking and he still plays with that thing to this day. Sweet potatoes with brisket such a great idea!! I have never seen that put together before.
