This Weekend I…

Once upon a time, I used to have fun weekend recaps on this blog to share with y’all my fun adventures! It’s been a while since I did one of these, but I had a fun weekend so why not give it a go!

This weekend I…

  • went to my tumbling class Friday evening and did a half! I’m scared to do my full again, but I got half way there. Baby steps y’all. We’ll see what this Friday has in store for me.
  • attended the Sportsman Gala benefiting Curing Children’s Cancer Fund! A family friend of ours is the president for Curing Children’s Cancer Fund and he invited us to come. Since it was put on by the Chelsea and Manchester United Houston fan clubs, they invited famous former players to speak. I was very impressed by Norman Whiteside’s speech. He was so engaging and incredibly hilarious. It was also great that we were able to spend time with the Fergusons and JP’s parents.
  •  spent Saturday morning with my best girl while JP golfed with his friends!
  •  ran with Chloe to the new, smaller pool! It’s a little over a mile away, so I got a nice little workout in before we played. We were originally going to play at the park, but I knew that as soon as Chloe saw the pool she would want swim. So luckily I packed a lunch box with snacks and a bag with our swim gear. Chloe thinks that swimming requires snacks, so a lunch box is always necessary. We ran around and played at the park for about 15 minutes before the pool opened then we headed straight in.
  • had a blast swimming with my baby girl. She’s obsessed with the water and always has a great time. This pool has a great shallow section and a small play structure with a slide that Chloe can do all by herself. We’ll be going to this pool a lot. We love our community pools!


  •  crashed hard after our park/pool/run time. Chloe napped for 2 1/2 hours while I got a few things done and sat on the couch.
  • ordered Mexican food to go and JP picked it up because we were all too tired to get dressed and go to dinner. Instead, we ate at our table in jammies and went to bed at 9:00pm…on a Saturday. No shame in my game. I stayed up late for the gala on Friday, so I get a free pass.
  •  celebrated Father’s Day at my parents’ house!
  • ate wayyyyyyy too much watermelon. Mostly Chloe ate too much watermelon, but I ate quite a bit too. It’s so delicious!
  • went swimming again with my family! We were literally outside all day and it was perfect. We watched the Aggie baseball game {which didn’t exactly end the way we wanted}, swam all day, had a few drinks, smoked ribs on the pit, laughed and did lots of ridiculous things because we can.
It was pretty much an awesome weekend. We didn’t do too much and we didn’t sit around and do nothing. Those are the best. You get to relax, but you feel like you did something at the same time. We also got this pretty awesome family picture…

Why yes, that is me standing on my husband’s shoulders with our almost 2 year old daughter just floating in front of us. HA! Her eyes are open, just look closely.

Anyways, I hope y’all had a wonderful weekend and that your Monday goes by quickly! Happy Monday y’all!
