On Monday we hosted some friends for a little playdate. I informed Jane multiple times that she wouldn’t be swimming with the big kids as it would be too difficult for her to be out there and the adults would be sitting and watching up by the house. Everyone did great and the kids had a lot of fun!
The kids sang songs and it was just the cutest!
At one point, my neighbor, Amy, needed to change over her laundry so she took Jane with her to help! LOL! So funny!
On Tuesday we ran errands and well…we just needed to get out of the house…lots of summer bickering was occurring. So I went to try on clothes for mine and Jon’s upcoming concert date. I bought this bodysuit, but ended up not wearing it. The kids were so funny with their opinions of what I was trying on and they were complete goofballs while in the dressing room area!
We picked up some dollar store Fourth of July decorations and I worked on a tiny little project for my fireplace mantel.
On Wednesday we visited with some good friends and the kids played in their pool and new and amazing playroom that they just had finished adding onto their house! Jane loved their dog, Izzy, and we had an amazing time chatting and catching up!
On Thursday we headed to Jane’s Nature Class and we learned about birds and went bird watching with “binoculars.” Henry and Eliza once again loved spending time on the trails and building nests together.
On Friday Jon and I headed down to Noblesville, Indiana to go see Dave Matthews! It was a long drive and I kept saying that I felt like I forgot something…due to me not having a million and one things with us like we usually do for the kiddos. We also took my car so that we could go to Target and pick up a few items. My car just felt so empty inside!
We didn’t research enough about where to eat, so our dinner wasn’t the best, but the beers were delicious and I really enjoyed spending time with this smoke show of a husband. 😉
After dinner, we found an Uber and arrived nice and early at the Ruoff Music Center. I love, love this picture of us!
We were so happy to have arrived nice and early so that we could just sit, talk, people watch, drink another beer and wait for the concert to begin!
Also, for it being nearly ninety degrees it wasn’t too bad outside.
We had the most amazing time! We did leave the concert just a tad early due to it being so dang far from our hotel and knowing we’d need an Uber. I’m sure we would’ve waited forever and a day had we not left when we did.
SATURDAY AND SUNDAY
We woke up bright and early on Saturday and were home by 10:30 to see the kiddos. I was feeling…well, I was feeling pretty tired. I managed to get in a run to keep up my energy for the rest of the day and both Jon and I drank lots of water throughout the day.
I managed to accomplish more decluttering on both Saturday and Sunday…
…and on Sunday I got in another run in the park.
It was a great week and a busy one, too. This week we’re preparing for about 30 guests, we’re standing at 28 people at the moment, to be arriving this weekend for a big Fourth of July gathering and I have so much to do, but we’re getting excited for the fun to begin!
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Monday, friends!
I’m linking up with Sarah and Holly for Hello Monday.
Two weekends ago Jon and I went to Detroit to meet up with some long time besties, Damien and Laura. We went out to dinner and attended The Killers concert! Driving into Detroit was so fun! I used to go with my family when I was little. We’d go to Joe Louis Arena for boat…
It’s Monday and I’m here for it! I absolutely loved last week and how slow and relaxed it was. We started reading The Hobbit with Henry and Eliza, I started reading The Little Princess with Eliza, we played hours of Catan and Jane is enjoying swimming in the lake with a life jacket, of course,…
Happy Monday! We’re officially under a week until Halloween! WooHoo! I seriously can’t believe it. After seeing some Halloween charcuterie boards around Pinterest and over on Instagram I thought why not give it a go myself. On Friday afternoon I put together this cute little charcuterie board for the kids as a surprise for when…
Happy Monday and happy last Monday of the longest month EVER! The beginning of the month didn’t seem so slow, but geesh, these last couple of weeks just seem to be draaaaagging. I don’t know what it is, but ever since it became January, I just wanted January to be over. It’s not even the…
Our weekend began on Thursday with a trip to Chicago. The kids didn’t have school on Monday (MLK Day and professional development day), nor did they have school on Wednesday (snow day). I was a little concerned about all the days they’d be missing, but school was again canceled on Thursday due to icy back…
Welp, here I am. I’m fiiiiiinally blogging for the first time this week since last Friday. Last week and was utterly exhausting and this week has consisted of attempting to clean up from Jane’s birthday party, blog, create content for Instagram and pack for our upcoming trip…all of which I seemed to make zero headway…
Oh my gosh I LOVE Dave Matthews-what a perfect date night!
Sounds like a great little getaway just the 2 of you! Good luck with the huge party this weekend.
You two are sooo adorable!!! I am so jealous of that concert! Must have been an amazing time! So much summer fun! HUGS! Annster
I'm so glad you had such a great time at the concert!! We've considered getting an uber to a concert before, too, but we've always been worried about not being able to get one on the way out!! I'm glad y'all didn't have any trouble!
