Rainy Weekend Rewind

The majority of the weekend was just rainy & relaxing for our family of 3.  Friday night we had a fancy family dinner at Chic-fil-A and then headed to a local consignment sale where I was hoping to get some nice stuff for Elyse.  I honestly couldn't have been more disappointed. I've never been a huge garage sale shopper, but I was hoping to find some nice quality play clothes for Elyse and everything was just super worn out!  Ughh...I'm not going to pay 75% of the original price for something used & worn, when I can pay 100% and get something brand new and clean! 

Hopefully better luck next time! 

 Worn out from a day of playing with Gigi and a date night out with Momma & Daddy!

Saturday morning I stayed home and played with Elyse while Nick went to work until noon.  We had a laid back afternoon that included naps for all of us!  We also ended up randomly heading down to my parents' house for dinner and a nice walk around their property.  Sometimes I feel like we practically live with my parents since we work together and we also normally spend some time together on the weekends, but I'm just so grateful that Elyse is going to have both sets of grandparents so nearby!  And I certainly won't complain about the free babysitter!

Sunday's have become pretty routine for us...church, lunch, a few household chores, some laying around, and then small group!  This week we were in charge of dinner for Small Group and we decided to take breakfast on the go.  Nick took charge on making the pancakes and we had close to 50 before we were all done!  I just took some fruit and a few eggs and called it good...let me just say that breakfast for dinner was a big hit!

Elyse is 18 weeks old today!  Where does the time go?!?  (4 month post coming later this week after her doctor's appointment!)

Awwwww! She looked wiped out from shopping! I'm totally with you on not buying old worn-out clothes! Maybe if they're gently-used!
18 weeks? !!! I remember when she was born! Seems like just yesterday! Congrats!!!
