Memorial Day Weekend Recap

What an eventful weekend it was! I first want to say thank you to all our men and woman who serve and have served for our country. It is so easy to take our freedom for granted, but we have those brave souls to thank for that.

Friday night was uneventful since Bill got home later in the evening from a work trip. So, we just stayed in, had some wine and watched Mad Men on Netflix. We are almost through season 5 and have watched it together from the beginning! It's a great Netflix pick if you have not watched the series!

Saturday we got ready to take Cam to his first wedding. My parents were unavailable to watch him, so we thought we'd just try to take him along. The wedding was about 1.5 hours away and we timed it so that he was fed and it was his nap time during the ride. 

Well, he slept for a bit in the car and when we got there he was in a good mood. He was great during the ceremony and I even was able to feed him a bottle during it to keep him quiet. Then, around dinner time he started to get fussy. I'm not sure if it was all the new people coming up to him or the fact that he got his 6 month shots the day before, but he was ready to go home! I went out in the car with him for a bit to settle him down which worked. I was able to take him back inside and he slept in his carseat while we ate dinner and visited with Bill's family for a while (it was his cousin's wedding). We ended up leaving close to 8 pm and Cam slept the entire way home. It was nice that he could come with us, but definitely a different experience at a wedding with a baby! Not sure I would do it again.

Sunday we took it easy in the morning. I sent Bill out to get us some breakfast in the morning and he came home with the most glorious feast from Honey Baked Ham Co. of all places! Apparently, they have a great breakfast menu! The french toast was amazing and so was the candied bacon!

I decided yesterday that it is time to go on a diet to drop these last pesky 7-9lbs... More on that later...

Sunday afternoon, we set out to get a few things for the house and flowers for potting outside. We got some pots for our back patio and some for the front porch. Next up is planting some flowers in the front. I love this season!

I just loved this little owl pot so much I had to get it!

Monday we decided to take advantage of the Memorial Day sales going and bought our new patio set from Macy's! It arrives in 2 weeks and I can't wait! That was the last big furniture purchase we wanted to make for the house, so it feels great to have that done!

We also got some floating shelves from Pottery Barn to hang in the family room. The new decor is coming together! Can't wait to share when it's complete.

Of course, Cam had a great 3 day weekend :)
