It’s Workin’ It Wednesday!
The second Wednesday of every month, Erika and I host a link up where we talk about how we’re workin’ it in certain areas of our life (and then ask you to share your advice/tips/tricks on the subject too).
So far this year, we’ve discussed these topics:
A weekend in our life!
(Because clearly we knew our brains would be too fried/useless by this time in the summer that we didn’t a no-brainer topic 😉 .)
So, you guys know me…if it’s fall or Christmas, then my family is tracking down any festival/Oktoberfest/parade/fair/pumpkin patch within a 100 mile radius of our home to visit over the weekends. I cannot get enough fall/Christmas cheer in my life. #impossible But…during the summer, our weekends are very different and VERY low-key. So, here’s a little look at this last weekend. I did an okay job taking pictures (I would forget and then remember and take a bunch and then forget again). Who wishes it were the weekend right now?! ME!
We kicked off our Friday night with pizza on our town square with my parents and Samuel. I have exactly zero pictures from that event. #imafailure
We typically don’t eat dinner with my parents on Friday nights, but Madeley had spent the night with them the night before and they were returning her, so we met for an early dinner. After that, we drove home but it was only like 6:15…so we decided to change our clothes and go play golf!
Ah! We love golfing! We played the nine holes that has our old house on it. We lived here for 7 years :). This was the house where I brought home baby Kensington and baby Smith. We have so many good memories here!
My big guy loves to golf! He’s so much better than me! Ha!
Ashby couldn’t play because of her arm, but she was the cutest golf cart buddy. She attempted to keep score…it was basically the score sheet with a million hearts drawn all over it.
We went home, showered, the kids watched a movie while Andrew and I watched House of Cards and then the big 3 slept in sleeping bags in our room.
The next morning, I was up and at ’em with my coffee and…
…Pinterest. I love pinning. It’s my favorite form of social media. I did work in my office until I smelled something delicious…
…and it was my sweet hubby making everyone his Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Pancakes.
I had a pancake with honey and strawberries.
At this point, Andrew took Smith to their deer lease to check on things and the girls were still sleeping, so I…
…went to go use our stairmill and then do a little yoga outside (I love yoga outside!).
At 9:15, I went upstairs and this one woke up! This was her first morning to wake up in her big girl bed!! She had asked to go to sleep earlier the night before, so she slept on the bottom bunk for the first time!
Andrew and Smith came home around 11:30 and we headed to lunch at our country club. Love these girls!
For some weird reason, we were the only ones in there at this time, so Smith played with his pocket racer. Do you know what those are? They’re little cars that go in your pocket along with a little thing to charge them that is also the remote. My mom bought him one for his birthday in January and he basically always has it in his pocket.
I love this guy! And yes…I had my swimsuit under my clothes. I wanted to be prepared for later in the day 😉 .
This girl couldn’t wait to eat her breakfast burrito!
Those two are sweet together 🙂 .
After lunch, we went to Trader Joe’s.
And then we came home and while the younger two napped, we swam! (Ashby can’t swim because of her arm at this point, so it was good timing!)
And then it started raining…
…but then they decided a little rain made swimming more fun! (That’s air guitar he’s playing. Ha!)
I didn’t want to swim in the rain, so I read while I watched…
…and then when it stopped raining, I jumped in too!
Around 4:30, we got everyone dressed and decided to drive to Dallas for dinner.
Mexican food with my fam!
The other side of the table 🙂 .
After dinner, we walked around Highland Park Village (where the restaurant is located) because the weather had cooled off and it was so nice outside!
Behind all my people.
On the way home, we stopped at Pokey O’s for ice cream!
The next morning, we got up and headed to church. I love the Bible app on my phone. This was the verse for the day…
Wow. I could write a whole post on just this verse.
We were early to church (I don’t know how? We’re either 10 minutes late or 15 minutes early. It’s a mystery to me!) The big kids came with me to my class as I got my food out for the day (I bring my class food every Sunday morning). My dress is HERE.
After church, my family ate lunch, went and picked up our groceries (I had done the online grocery ordering) and then Erika and I went to Starbucks to meet a friend who was in town.
After that, I came home and found this munchkin on the floor watching a Barbie movie.
While I was making dinner that night…this girl walked in. I mean…it’s never dull with Madeley James around.
We ate dinner, everyone took showers and then Andrew made his homemade ice cream before bed.
Whew! That is a summer weekend with the Shull family!
Next month, our topic is getting geared for back to school (say it ain’t so!) and then coming up this year…
