Weekend Rewind

8.27.2012

This weekend:

We met up with Grace and Brittney for a playdate. The girls had a blast and they were so cute together. And I have to say that Brittney is looking totally adorable with her sweet baby bump.




  • We went to a barbecue. They had two bulldogs and Emerson was in love. They also had stairs with no baby gate, so I'm sure you can guess what Jesse and I were doing the entire time we were there. Even with all of the climbing we had a great time.
  • We made (and ate) a fresh batch of oatmeal pancakes.
 Check out that bed head:
  • We cleaned, cleaned, and cleaned some more. We did a deep clean of the whole house. Of course, I had to use some of my Pinterest finds like this floor cleaner and this Keurig cleaning tutorial.
  • Emerson found a new favorite spot to sit. She's so silly these days.
  • We started watching a new series called Suits. We've only watched a few episodes of Season 1 but we are already hooked.
  • I did a little bit of crafting and embroidery. I've made a few rookie mistakes along the way but I'm slowly figuring it all out. (A few of these items are from the last week. I didn't do all of them this weekend!)


  • We spent some time at the pool. The water seems to be cooling down a little bit, which is really nice.
  • We tried a new recipe. It's called Grilled Chicken with Avocado Tomato Salsa and it was AMAZING. I highly recommend it. I may or may not have been licking the bowl of the avocado salsa. As Emerson would say: Yum Yum!!

And I think that just about sums it up. How was your weekend?

I'm so impressed with your embroidering! Where did you get your fonts, love them! Did you put anything on top of the fabric before embroidering? I noticed some of my things were puckering after being washed. What machine did you end up getting?
