Monday Randoms

Oh Monday, we meet again.  The weekend was a whole bunch of fun, but I swear, it still wasn't long enough! I even had three days off...THREE.DAYS! Ugh.  What did we do, you ask?  Well, let me tell you....

Friday morning we ventured out for a coffee date then met up with family.  How cute is Mila and her cousin, Henry?  

Later that day, we started Mila on solids!  Avocado to be exact.  She loved it.  LOVED.IT!  I couldn't feed the kid fast enough.  She is her mother's child! 

The rest of the weekend was spent doing random know, the things that are too boring for the good ol' blog.  

Well, maybe it wasn't all boring.  We did manage to make a pumpkin heath bar cake!  It was delicious, but I gotta tell doesn't taste like pumpkin!  It was a nice change-up to the chocolate version, though.  

Oh, I almost forgot the best part of the night! We spent the evening at home watching movies.  Such a good time!

To top off the weekend, we spent way to much money on books....if that's even possible.  I've started on two...or should I say we have started two.  

  • The Happiness Project:  this book is about a year dedicated to happiness.  Hence the name, The Happiness Project.  You can read the specifics here.

  • All About Us:  This one isn't a book like you's a book of questions.  For you and your significant other.  Ryan and I started it last night.  It asks questions about your past, present and future.  You know, like what do you want from each other.  It's questions you wouldn't normally ask.  So far it's good.  I'll give a full account once we've finished it!

So tell me, what fun things did you do this weekend?!


  1. Mila is precious! Did you know you can freeze pureed avacado without it browning? I recently learned this. Just freeze in an ice cube tray...pop a couple in the microwave for 30 seconds and instant avacado for Mila! :) We had a 3 day weekend too! We roadtripped to Columbus, OH from Tulsa and it was so. much. fun. and exhausting lol. Monday hit me like a mac truck. I',m currently reading "Captivating" by John & Stasi Eldredge...very good so far! Here's to Monday getting better ;)

  2. Thank you! An ice tray just for her is now on my shopping list! :) We've been using baby storage bags and they are a serious pain to use.
    I bet you were so exhausted after such a long road trip! Glad you had a good time! Last year we drove to New Orleans and I vowed to never go on a long road trip again. :)
    I'll definitely be checking out "Captivating". I'm always on the hunt for a good book.

  3. [...] more thing…..If you read my post the other day, you know I’m reading the Happiness Project.  Oh my gosh y’all, [...]

  4. Henry loves to "snuggle" with his cousins:)
    LOVED the Happiness Project! Captivating is awesome as well. You should add 1,000 gifts to your list- so so good!

  5. I just started my project today...I'm so excited! What did you learn from it?
