Three day weekends always remind my why I am a not a stay at home mom. I just don’t have the patience or the creativity. Or enough wine. That said, this Labor Day weekend was actually really fun.

I have a new nickname. Feel free to use it!
I am beyond nervous about this presentation, but we can’t say we aren’t prepared! I might actually miss all of these planning sessions. Or maybe I’ll just miss the food.
Ummm yeah, we had to make a video. Watch it for a good laugh!
Saturday we were up bright and early for swim lessons, followed by dance lessons, a “quick” workout, and then a stop by Davis Bakery for lunch (we are officially regulars).
Whew. What a morning.
After lunch, I headed over to Nordstrom Rack (where I bought a dress and a workout top for less than $50 – score!!) with my friend Tracy — and foolishly let the kids skip their nap. I guess I forgot we would be up late. Or I was just charmed by the allure of good bargains. The only sleeping they got was in the car. #parentfail
After shopping, we headed over to my brother’s Bodybuilding Competition.
He didn’t win – but he gave it his best. He has 2 more competitions in the next 6 weeks – because apparently he is insane. <–People say the same thing about my running.
After he finished his thing (and he de-tanned himself), we headed over to Fuddruckers for a super late dinner. I had my first Buffalo Burger. Tasted just like a regular burger. Apparently, seeing half naked people on a stage really cranks up my appetite because I swear I was going to eat my arm off. Wait what?
Sunday we slept in. Ok, maybe I just slept in. 9+ glorious hours of sleep were mine. I needed it. We spent most of the day doing a lot of nothing, although we hit the gym for our usual spin class, and then I did the usual grocery shopping. It was such a nice day!
That night we celebrated Labor Day with my OTHER friend Jackie and her husband Gary – and our friends Devon and Brent — and everyones kids.
Gary did this knowing I have a blog — so, I had to post it.
It was a fun night full of dancing, cornholing, and of course, drinking.
We also ate. A LOT.
We tried locking the kids out — but it didn’t work.
Actually, the kids nearly killed each other about 80,000 times, so after the final attempt we called it a night. However, I’m not sure anyone even noticed that we left!
Today we recovered by heading to the gym, hitting up the splash park, and lounging. Lots of lounging.
I mean, isn’t that what Labor Day is all about?? (Don’t ask my hubby — he had to work)
And now that Labor Day has marked the end of summer, we can all start wearing our cool fall clothing and boots, right? Right??? *Sigh* No, no — that’s just all of the stores think – and they taunt us for MONTHS. It’s like Florida’s version of Groundhog Day. Here’s to ONLY 2 more months of summer!
