I am so need of a vacation from my weekend.
Is it REALLY a holiday weekend when you are working your ass off?
Truthfully, it wasn’t all bad – it was just long. Dan works in retail and Labor Day is one of the busiest holidays of the year, so it was mostly me and my crazies. They get REALLY crazy during holiday weekends too.
There was also a visit from my brother…
Clearly, Evan hates him.
A hang session with this squirrel (that I’m PRETTY sure is also living my crawl space/attic).
This is as close as I will ever get to having a pet.
And a drive up to t
he middle of nowhere Umatilla to visit my mom.
I’m just happy there was wine this year. And beer! Pumpkin beer, specifically.
I really hate most things pumpkin (I know, it’s a blogger sin), but I REALLY love pumpkin beer. I’m currently having a beer-off… I’ll let you know how that goes.
Thanks to the gym’s childcare I managed to squeeze in some great workouts this weekend too – including this one from Paula.
I used 30lb dumbbells for the deadlifts, 20lbs for the kettlebell swings, and I added a minute plank before the run. It’s three days later and my shoulders and legs still hurt. You should totally do it too.
I also tried to run 6 miles on the treadmill on Saturday and I just couldn’t make myself run more than 4. What is the secret of people who can runs for miles and miles on the treadmill? Somebody PLEASE share or sprinkle some magic running dust on me. I was so freaking bored I had to end it. I can’t wait until it’s cooler outside so I can complain about running outside again. At least it’s interesting.
In parenting of the year news, I gave my husband the baby while we were hanging out with friends on Saturday night and I turned around to see this…
So, of course I took a picture of it. Baby’s first beer is a milestone in this family.
Five minutes later he looked like this.
Speaking of milestones – a year ago this weekend I found out I was pregnant. A YEAR! It goes by so fast. I have to admit, I thought the shock of having a third baby would have worn off by now – but it still kind of blows my mind. Sometimes I miss being pregnant (<–yes, I’m weird), but dang this kid is cute.
Best shock ever. Yes, he was planned but I was still completely shocked when I saw that “plus sign.” And yes, that onsie is true.
I’m finishing the weekend (kind of) watching FSU football. I’m not ready to talk smack because we have a new QB this year — but as always, GO NOLES!
And now that I have survived another holiday weekend – my brain somehow needs to transform back into work mode. I only have three days of work this week (and a hair appointment on Friday – THANK GOD), but that’s three days to cram everything in. Wish me luck.
