Scenes from the long weekend...

Oh what a weekend! We literally never left the house other than to go to church and B's birthday lunch. It was just what I needed! We have been going nonstop the last couple of months, and it finally caught up to me. Laying low and hanging with my guys was just what this tired, pregger mama needed.

We basically lived outside this weekend. Popsicles, slip and slide and plenty of grilling made for the best time. I laugh because I've been researching bounce house water slides for the boys but am thinking we might not need one. They are so content with their $12 slip and slide and old plastic slide! They are also loving B's burgers! He is quite the grill master.

We managed to get dressed and out of the house Sunday for church but not before a bday breakfast for B. I asked George what we should make and he scrolled through my breakfast page on Pinterest and picked these tasty breakfast cookies. They were so good! After church we hit up a new restaurant for birthday brunch, and I must say I only want my eggs Benedict on croissants from now on. So rich and so good!

Spent Memorial Day remembering those who had fallen and giving thanks for their sacrifice. I also gave thanks for B being home from work and another day to sleep in. Can you believe I didn't get out of bed until 10am?? The best! We whipped up another birthday treat with the help of the boys and had a few friends over for more grilling and playing. Ate way too much and laughed plenty watching all our crazy kids play. The perfect end to a much needed relaxing weekend!

Five on Friday - Life Lately

Oh hi, I'm Rachel, and yes I still have a blog. You wouldn't know it from looking around here lately. So sorry! We have been busy, busy but the good kind of busy. Here's a quick update of what we have been up to lately.

{ONE} Trip to Rosemary Beach -- A couple of weeks ago we beached it up down on 30A just our little family of four, and it was AMAZING. Pictures {way too many} and a full recap coming next week. Stay tuned!

{TWO} Louisiana trip -- Believe it or not, last weekend we got back in the car and headed to Louisiana to host a wedding shower for B's cousin. Lots of fun catching up with family, but wow I'm officially too big to be roadtripping. Eight hours in the car is not so fun for this preggers mama.

{THREE} Outdoor living -- We have been enjoying this gorgeous weather and basically living outside. Oh and eating way too many popsicles!

{FOUR} Last day of MDO -- The boys enjoyed their last day of Mother's Day Out this week. We were so sad to say goodbye to their sweet teachers, and I was sad to miss my precious alone time. Ha! Have no fear though, they start summer school in a couple of weeks. Yay!!!

{FIVE} New venture -- And last but certainly not least, I have been busily working away on a new venture and cannot wait to share all the details on this new project. Stay tuned! Believe me, it's going to be good!
