Weekend Plans

Our weekend is busy. Fun busy. And it is June! Hard to believe, right? So Friday is quiet here. We actually have no plans whatsoever. I think Steve will cook something on the grill, and we will spend the evening outside. : )

Saturday is a special day...Peyton's birthday! She is turning 14, and is my quiet one. Her party will reflect that...just us and my mom and sister Margie and her husband Chris. The verdict is still out on what she wants for her birthday dinner. She is currently asking everyone else what they would like her to pick. I am trying to convince her that she can choose whatever she wants, but that is Peyton...always thinking of others. : )

Sunday is a busy day. We will attend Mass, then come home for a quick change before heading to Rhett's soccer game. Madison has the day off of work, so we will all be able to go. Afterward, I am thinking we will find somewhere to eat out before heading home. And then, it will be showers and baths and preparation for our last week of school before summer!

That is our weekend...all wrapped up nice and tidy. I hope yours is happy and sunny and cozy and yummy, whatever your plans may be. Thanks for visiting!

The trees lining our driveway did their thing this year...and I was glad.

Oh...hello there Kirby. : )
Would that be ice cream on your face?

Love bringing berries home from the store. Look at these beauties!

Memorial Day was beautiful this year.

We watched the parade downtown...

and Grandma met us there!

I love my mother. She is the best human being I have ever known. For real.

No words necessary.

And then it was home for movies, dinner and dessert.
Remember those berries? Yep.

Happy Weekend!


  1. Peyton sounds like the sweetest thing! And that dog is adorable!

  2. Peyton seems older and wiser than her years! Birthday wishes to your beautiful, young lady. A local store had raspberries on sale last weekend. I bought some and made homemade raspberry syrup and jelly for vanilla ice cream. I'll have to post the easy peasy recipe soon. Peyton would enjoy making it! Have a wonderful weekend!

  7. Since I've been following you on Instagram, I decided it was time to visit your glad I stopped by for a visit.
