Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all enjoyed the beautiful weekend. The Fall temperatures certainly made this mama very happy, despite the rain on Saturday.
We had quite an eventful weekend ourselves. Lots of fun things happening, and some not-so-fun things too.
Saturday, Pretty and I went out in the morning to pick up a bike we had found on a Facebook Mommy Marketplace group. For $30, she is now the proud owner of an 18", glitter, purple bike. She spent every spare moment this weekend outside trying to get used to the new, bigger bike.
Then it was off to the grocery store for a few key items. You know the ones, milk, bread, etc. Of course, we also picked up a raspberry white chocolate crème brûlée cheese cake for dessert. Let me tell you, this cheesecake is to die for...so yummy!
Shortly after returning home, Pretty and I picked up the rest of the clan and ventured to Georgetown for our monthly Stooge dinner with my besties. It's even better that the husbands and kids have all become besties too! Our casual dinner with good friends turned into a little bit of a drink-fest for the men-folk, which just made us women laugh at their ridiculousness... and Mr. Twingle had better watching "Breaking Bad" or he might get the beats from one Mr. Thorne, LOL.
It was a late night for everyone and the kids all slept in till about 8:30-9:00. Yeah, I know that's not much of a sleep in; but, when they usually wake a 6:00, you take what you can get. So Sunday was a slow-start to the beautiful sunny day. Pretty had to go outside to ride her bike, so I got dressed and went out with her and Pickle. We happened upon our new next-door neighbours, who are just moving in, and introduced ourselves. They seem very nice and I look forward to knowing them better.
As Pretty and Boo rode their bikes around the block, Pickle and I decided to draw pictures, with chalk, on the sidewalk. Unfortunately, the bees decided to keep buzzing past us and one got caught in Pickle's hair. As she freaked and tried to get it out, she squished it into her face where it promptly stung her, right under the eye. My poor baby girl. She was a trooper and let Mr. Twingle and I extract the stinger, ice it, and even took Benadryl without complaint. Sadly, today her eye is all swollen; but, she is in good spirits.

After our exciting morning, we ventured to Vineland for a late lunch/early dinner with Mr. Twingle's high school friend. I just so happens that I get along with his wife, really well, so it's fun for everyone. We had a great afternoon and the kids all played well. Then it was time for home and putting the kids to bed. After such a busy weekend, this mama was in bed by 9:30 too.
All in all, it was great weekend. I love when our weekends are filled with friends we love, great food, perfect weather and fun. After all, isn't fun the spice of life?
I hope your week goes well and you can find some fun in your daily life too.
