A Whirlwind Weekend

Ladies, I'm exhausted this morning. I had the alarm set, then bumped it back half an hour, even then Eric had to basically shove me out of bed. Ella felt the same way. She took some serious convincing to get out of bed this morning. That's what happens when you have a whirlwind weekend though. 

Friday night we headed to Saratoga to my parents' house. The four hour ride is pretty much the last thing I want to do on a Friday night, but I didn't want to waste a Saturday morning with my mom, so we decided to suck it up. We forced Eric to do the driving, and my sister & her dog, Barkley, came along with us too.

We didn't arrive until 8:45, so we all basically had a snack, chatted briefly, and headed to bed. But the next morning, we were all up & ready to go! 

Eric & my dad headed to the golf course, while us ladies headed to the mall! 

my outfit for Saturday - shorts are J.Crew Factory & I'm in love! 

After some shopping, my mom took me to one of my favorite spots - the Halfmoon Sandwich Shop - for a panini. I just love Panini #4 - turkey, russian dressing, american cheese, and bacon on flatbread. It's so good & I'd eat it every day if I could. 

After lunch, I left with Eric & Ella to go to my nephew's 1st birthday party! The weather was absolutely beautiful (although it did get a bit windy later in the afternoon) so we played, and played, and played outside. I just love seeing the three of them together... 

three very messy, very busy, very happy cousins

I love the three of us together too...

And the cake was delicious too! I may have ate two pieces, but it's ok because I was wide awake when we got back to my parents that night & randomly decided to hit up the treadmill for a few miles.... 

I made this same face as I was trying to sneak piece #2 without anyone noticing... 

Sunday morning, as per tradition, we hit up Cracker Barrel for breakfast! 

She weaseled her Grandpa into buying her a Stuffy before we even ate!

Eric gave Ella a quick checkers lesson on our way out. 

Then, in the blink of an eye, it was time to go home... 

passed out on the ride home...

Seriously, I feel like I blinked & my weekend was over! I came home, took Charlie out for a long walk, picked up dinner (a super nutritious one at that) and did laundry - and that was it!
