Weekend Wrap Up

I've been sick for more than a week but this weekend I was finally able to drag myself out of bed for a busy and fun weekend.

Friday night we had a cook out with a few friends.  Since I was just getting over being sick, Jason did all of the cooking because no one wanted to risk getting my germs.  He made my signature salad that we always have at barbecues. I'll be sure to post the recipe later this week because every time we make it, someone asks for the recipe.

Saturday was busy.  We have several home improvement projects in the works and we're gearing up to get moving on all of them at the same time.

We had a reunion with all of the couples from our birthing class, since all of the babies have turned one now.  It was fun to see everyone.  We gathered at the Ithaca Farmer's market, which is one of my favorite little excursions in the summer.

Saturday also brought us out to Newfield for Imani's annual solo at NYSSMA.

After the solo, we relaxed on the school's playground for a bit.

And since we were in Newfield, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to stop and see Dick and Jane, although for the first time EVER, we didn't buy anything.

On our way back home we made a stop that is always part of every weekend.

I'm thankful my children know how to have fun no matter where they are because our stops at Lowe's are never as quick as Jason promises.

Saturday night we watched America Idol (we DVR it) and planned to see the super moon, but I took Benadryl Nighttime Cold and fell asleep far earlier than I care to admit.

Sunday we worked on our yard while Imani was at a birthday party.

The weekend also included:

playing catch

trips to Rite Aid (of course! and YES, it should be plural: TRIPS)

 making meals together

planting herbs

moving rocks

taking walks.

Hope your weekend was filled with lots of fun.

PS - I start a new job today! Wish me luck.


  1. What a huge event filled weekend. All the best for your new job and I hope you are feeling better. xx

  2. Stephenie,
    Hope you've recovered from being sick. You have so much going on -- hope a vacation is somewhere in your future! I could spend an entire day at that farmer's market! Wishing you much success at your new job.
