Weekend Update

Man, it was hot this weekend!  It's not supposed to be 81 in upstate NY at the end of September!  Of course, I am probably the only one complaining.  But I really like the cool fall weather!

It was a busy weekend.
Friday night I met a friend out for drinks and appetizers.  Then we headed over to Sommer's Stella and Dot party.  As usual, I bought too much!  Sommer had some delicious munchies and these gorgeous cupcakes:

Saturday morning the in-laws arrived for a visit.  After some coffee and chatting, we headed out for Nick's soccer game.  It was hot.  Very hot.  Like sweat dripping (pouring) down your back hot.  My mother in law and I even both got sunburns.  But as usual, it was super cute watching these 4 year olds run around and play.

After soccer we headed out to lunch at our favorite diner.  This has kind of become a tradition when the in-laws visit.  It's quick, family friendly, and there's a million menu choices so everyone can get whatever they really want.

After lunch, I had the most glorious hour and a half I have had in a long time.  I had a nap!!  A completely uninterrupted nap.  Just me and the kitty.  Oh how I miss my afternoon naps!  After nap time we took the kids to the school playground.

After playground fun, it was off to the grocery store and to pick something up for dinner.  I asked the boys if I could get a nice picture of them.  This is what I got...

Sunday was more soccer, followed by a trip to McDonald's playland and a Target run.  We played outside before dinner and then watched Toy Story of Terror with popcorn and juice (Nick's request).

By the way, do you like frittatas?  I have been making one every week!  I guess I am late to the frittata train, but oh my, they are so easy and delicious!  Last night I made a Greek frittata- feta cheese, spinach, tomatoes and scallions.  It was so good.  Next time I think I'll chop the spinach up smaller though,

Oh!  And I finally hung up the wreath I made!  It's hanging above the sink and makes me happy while I am doing unhappy things (like dishes!!).

How was your weekend?

  2. What an awesome park! Sounds like it was an amazing weekend!

  3. Awe! I cant wait for my little one to play soccer :)

  4. Love the wreath! So cute!
    I prefer the cooler fall weather as well. I hate sweating and getting sunburned while I'm trying to pick pumpkins and apples. Lol
    I feel like fall weather in NY has been so screwy and I want to wear my sweatshirts!!
