{weekend in review}

What a great weekend! I love weekends where we don't have much planned or where we have some things planned but not a lot of time and energy goes into getting to them!

Friday evening, my mother & father-in-law took the kids, while Mike and I had a staycation at our house. We love to have date nights and try to do it at least 2-3 times a month! We were going to go out to eat, but really we just wanted to relax and watch the Chiefs and the Royals at home and honestly not get out of our jammies, so that's exactly what we did. I made some oven-baked tacos, which are delicious by the way - super easy recipe can be found here.  We used the normal recipe and added the normal toppings + some Thousand Island dressing on top.  My best friend totally has me hooked on the Thousand Island with tacos thing! I also use french fried onions on top of my salads in place of croutons, but that's a topic for another day.  It. Is. So. So. Good. Anyway, we popped open some Corona's with some fresh limes and I watched some sports with my honey :) 

Saturday, we woke up later than normal, because we didn't have kids & my mother-in-law came over and we went to the Big Trucks event at a high school near us, it was pretty cool that morning so I pulled out some of my fall sweaters for the first time.  

We decided to go to this event because we missed one a couple of weeks ago & Landon is obsessed with all things cars/trucks/police/firetruck.  We had a good time and it was a great FREE event sponsored by our beloved library, Woodneath! Then we went and had lunch at Cheddar's {the monte cristo is a must order!} & I stopped by Target to grab a birthday gift for our neighbor, Landon's friend.   Of course, I can never go in and just get what I'm needing to get at Target, so I came home with some cute gift tags from the dollar spot that I'm going to use on our Christmas gifts and a lighter for all those fall candles :)

Also, a little public service announcement, Halloween is slowly filtering in! EEK! I want that BOO! top for Harper to wear with her green or cream tutu but they didn't have her size on the floor yet. BOOO {pun intended} The kitten set could be used past Halloween too, so I may get that one instead!

When everything was said and done on Saturday, we had two very tired babies and a quiet/clean house to relax in and watch the Royals on Saturday night! 

We ended up drinking wine with a citronella candle and blankets on the front porch and then our neighbors came over and we chatted until the wee hours of the morning. 

Sunday, we woke up early, made a big breakfast and went to church.  They do donuts on Sundays at our church downstairs and you get to socialize and meet other members of the church.  This weekend, we could barely pull Landon away because he met his new best friend.  Finally, they said their farewells and "I'll see ya next Sunday"s. My dad and stepmom came out and brought lunch for us and watch the Royals and are you noticing that we never miss a game? We don't.  They visited for a bit, before Mike went to his fantasy football draft on Sunday night and we went to my mom's for dinner and then the kids and I fell asleep super early exhausted from a busy but fun weekend! 

Bring on another
