Weekend Highlights – We like to party all the time

Happy Monday friends, how are you today? I’m back after what was a bit of a whirlwind weekend with lots of activity each day.

Saturday morning started with the definite highlight of the whole family sleeping until 6:45 am!  Pretty late in our house.  I had originally planned to go to Orangetheory at 7am. But I woke up for a minute around 5:30 and decided that if the babies wanted to sleep in, I should too.  Fortunately, I was still able to squeeze in an at home barre workout before heading out to teach my class.

After class, we ran errands, both the boys got haircuts and we found ourselves at Costco for the second weekend in a row for a little stocking up and a food court lunch.  We then hustled home to all get ready for our evenings.  The hubs had to work and I had a bachelorette party to attend so the babies went to their grandparents for a little slumber party.

The bachelorette party was a blast! A friend of mine I used to go to school with is getting married on Cinco de Mayo, so some pre-wedding festivities were in order.

We started with a sushi dinner. I had a bowl of miso soup and a couple of crab puffs (the restaurant put jalapeño in them, which was a twist this spicy food lover liked), followed by a Tootsie roll and a spicy crab roll. Both were good, but I especially loved the Tootsie roll, which is a longtime favorite of mine.

After dinner we finished getting ready before heading out for a night of drinks and dancing. As I am usually at work or chasing kiddos around, I so rarely get dolled up, it definitely felt good! One of the bridesmaids made these cute goodie bags with beads, a little bottle of bubbly, water and snacks, which I thought was so sweet.  Those little bottles were also perfect for toasting our bride to be.

Sunday morning the hubs and I were up around 7:00 and did some blitz cleaning before the kids got home at 8:30. Then we were off to Target and to a birthday party for two of my little guy’s school friends.

The party was an under the sea theme and had tons of decorations and themed games. I loved all the decorations they made.  The shower cap jelly fish were my favorite, so clever!

They also had a bracelet station where you could make your own foam bracelets. I was wearing one of the kid’s bracelets most of the morning, and when I took it off I was greeted with this pink surprise. We will see how long it takes to wash off completely, it was still pretty pink Sunday evening.

In the afternoon, we had some friends over to play and have dinner. We did a fairly usual summer snack spread of veggies, chips and dip, deviled eggs and black olives, plus a bowl of fruit they brought over. For the main course we went with turkey sliders, a traditional version, as well as a green Chile, bacon guacamole burger. Slider form maybe my new favorite summer burger form. Typically I am a little filled up on snacks and don’t need much by the time dinner is ready, so a little slider was just right.

After saying good night to our friends and tucking some babies into bed, we got ready for the week and relaxed with a little Joel McHale on the couch. I loved Talk Soup when it was on and am happy to see him on Netflix now.

What did you do this past weekend? What’s on your agenda this week?

Hope you have a great day!

  1. did you have an allergic reaction to the bracelet or was it a pink/red bracelet that’s color bled on your arm? either way that stinks! sounds like you had a fun and busy weekend. hope you have a great week ahead

    1. I think it was just the dye, it’s still a little pink today. The bracelet was purple, so not sure why it stained pink like that, but it wasn’t irritated at all. Hope you had a good one and have a great day!

    1. Lol, I have always been a morning person, so it’s not too hard on me, but I think the hubs misses sleeping in. Hope you have a great day Deborah!

  2. sounds like our house, early risers (not my choice lol)!! Love that birthday party theme, cute!

    1. That’s true! I’m not sure why it’s called a Tootsie roll, it’s basically crab and eel sauce. Hope you have a great day Maureen!

    1. Thank you Erinn! It was a fun evening, I hadn’t been to sushi in a while, so that was a real treat as well.
