We had a busy but fun weekend that included some delicious food.
Before we get to that, though, check out this before and after of Penelope’s first grooming! The second picture is a little blurry, but it still shows how cute she looks. The groomer put a little Halloween bow and bandana on Penny. She and I could be great friends!
Friday morning was cold but gorgeous. We dropped Lulu off at school and then came home and did a four mile walk . . . and Emmy did a great job!
Saturday was Sweetest Day, and we celebrated by giving our sweet girls these adorable wearable unicorn blankets and some cool wipe off activity books.
Matty was gone for awhile during the morning/early afternoon on Saturday, so the girls and I ran to the grocery to get what we needed for our fancy Sweetest Day dinner. It turned out to be the greatest grocery run ever, because Busch’s had Ruffles All Dressed chips!! So WAY back when quarantine first started, my brother-in-law and sister-in-law texted to tell us to look for these chips and try them because they are delicious. Matty happened to find a bag at Kroger, and they were SO GOOD. . . and we haven’t been able to find them again! It’s a thing now that we look for them in every grocery we go to. Persistence pays off because a mere seven months after having our first bag, we found ten bags at Busch’s . . .
. . .and we bought eight of them! hahaha Four of them are headed to Bloomington this week because Rita is going to visit Sarah and Brian, one of them went to our friends, and the other three are for us. The sales clerk at Busch’s was laughing at how excited the girls and I were.
I snuck away into the empty room to try and list some things for sale on a mom to mom site . . . and Lucy found me. They always find me.
Penelope has finally figured out how to get on the couch by herself . . . and put herself down for a cozy little nap during the afternoon.
Speaking of naps, due to Penelope having some tummy trouble and Emily developing a fear of being in her room at night, I got very little sleep on Friday night. I had a 45 minute window between finishing chores and needing to start our Sweetest Day dinner, so I set my timer and took to the couch. Penelope hopped up and made herself at home . . . and then a little later Lucy came downstairs and laid on top of me . . . and then Emily came down with her Kindle and sat at my feet and sang songs most of the time. It was a super restful nap.
Lucy asked me a few days ago how noodles were made. I decided to show her and make our own pasta for Sweetest Day. It was by no means hard, but it did take much longer than I anticipated. It was definitely worth it, though!
The Heinbuchs came over and brought these silly monster treats that we enjoyed as appetizers.
Not the greatest picture, but that’s a bowl of homemade pasta, homemade sauce, and homemade meatballs. It was a DELICIOUS meal!
And we followed it up with the Heinbuch’s Spooky Brownies. They brought their A-game with the Halloween treats!
Sunday morning I ran some errands and went to the grocery. I couldn’t pull into the garage when I got home because Matty had set himself up a nice little spot to watch the girls play!
The rest of the day was spent playing at our playground, doing chores, and prepping for the week.
It was one of those weekends where I could definitely use one more day, but alas, we’re ready to tackle Monday! Have a great week!
