catching up...

i was so convinced life would certainly slow down after totally moving in and then after cullen's birthday....well life's pace seems to just continue as quickly as before!

the weekend following cullen's birthday party (which i will be posting pics of soon) was memorial weekend. i went to dinner that friday night for the first time without cullen since having him! i had never eaten out without him and it was nice to have girl/momma chat for 2 hours totally uninterrupted, it was also nice for C and B to have some time alone together. saturday we had billy's family over for a BBQ and we went to skills sports training, the business billy co-owns, so we could all hang out and play around in there. 

clearly culley had a good time, he was so tuckered out when we got home that is how he fell asleep, on the floor!
sunday we went to my parents for a BBQ and then monday evening i had some gals over that i used to work with for wine and snacks.  

this past week, i'm not even sure what all we did but the week flew by...of course!  i cooked one night, i never cook anymore and i miss making meals and eating din with B but he is gone almost every night until 8 or so and by that time i don't feel like cooking or eating a big meal especially since it's summer time.  the meal i made was based off a recipe from the trader joes website, drumksticks topped with the bottled sauce in the pic. below, i baked them for 25 mins and then coated them with crushed honey sesame cashews and then baked an additional 10.  i had never cooked drummies before and they were tasty!

i also ordered some more stuff for our house. every time we buy more stuff i'm certain that is all we will need and then i think of something else.  right now we are waiting on some decor for the kitchen and a floor lamp for the living room.  we also almost have our bedroom totally complete, i will post pics once it's finished.

my sister came over on friday and we brought cullen to the swimming pool behind our house.  there wasn't hardly anyone there and we all three had a great time!  i ended up fried! the pic below is my fried toe-mater tummy, 4 days prior! i had no idea i was burnt, guess i'll be using C's sunblock next time we head to the pool! because honestly i don't remember the last time i burned, yet again i don't recall the last time i laid outside for more than an hour...

friday night my sis and i ordered some 5 guys to go, i'd never had it before.  it was delicious!! & later that evening we made drinks with "kinky" vodka, also delicious!!

saturday my sis and i decided to go to lunch and go shopping.  there was a major road detour and we got totally lost so by the time we finally made it to the area we wanted to be in, we needed an adult beverage ;)  we had a beer and breakfast on an outdoor patio for lunch, it was perfectly yummy!  we went shopping for a while afterwards...
C was such a sweet boy, all day, as always :)
we carved our names and C's into the wood since everyone else did too ;)
saturday night my sis spent the night again so we needed more booze! ha! we decided to get loopy vodka which tastes exactly like fruit loops! we hung out with B and had a few drinks.  sunday morning my sis and i ended our weekend together perfectly, with a bloody mary, num! i love weekend's with my sis!

as soon as i have C's birthday party pics back from the photographer i will post them and i have 3 giveaways that go along with those posts!  

p.s. if you follow me on instagram chances are you saw lots of these pics already ;)  hope everyone is wonderful!  i think i'll have free time soon to actually read blogs.

Annie, sounds like a great past few weekends/weeks!!!! C is getting so big and is as adorable as ever!!!!!! I need to come in and check out those classes you talked about that Skills has :) This momma needs to be in better shape lol

BTW I love LOOPY, have you tried the bubble gum one?

Miss Chelsea said...

Isn't Loopy delicious? If you liked Kinky, try X-Rated... it's a lot better in my opinion but it's more expensive though =(
