Happy (super late) Monday! I"m finally sitting down after a long day and it's even Tuesday for some of you! We had such a busy weekend, but it was so fun! We were out every night and had back to back activities and we stayed up way too late and were up way, way too early. What I would have given for today off or even an extra two hours asleep!!
Friday night Matt and I ran some errands with the girls and picked up some take out. We had to get some odds and ends and a few birthday gifts. Target already has a ton of Troll movie toys that are so cute! I can't wait to see the movie! I've been running low on some makeup basics and grabbed my fave foundation (forgot to snap it!) and I wish I grabbed this one after Meg's review. Next time for sure! When I see a double pack of mascara, I can't help but buy some! It's such a great deal and I can always find some Holy Grail ones usually (check my fave drugstore mascaras out!). These beauty blenders are a must have and now Target is also selling them in two packs! Woohoo! I also grabbed some finishing powder to set my under eye concealer. I've used it twice now and I'm not sure how I feel about it. I like that it's colorless, but I do want to try a translucent powder that has some color to see if that would brighten up the area better. I don't know. Any suggestions?
Saturday morning was so hectic! We had one of our last swim lessons and had to hustle out to make it to Ellie's first dance class! She's don't so well in swim and kept mastering skill after skill and moved up quickly, but she's recently hit a wall. We would have loved to keep her in swim year round but she isn't enjoying it like she used to. We've gone back and forth about pushing past it or just giving her a change of pace and decided that a change would be better for her, especially given her age. We asked her about dance and she just lit up, luckily a new season just started and we were able to get her started right away. Her first class went really well! She had so much fun and I can't wait for next week!
After dance class, we headed home to put the girls down for a nap before heading out to a family birthday party. After the party, we headed to Matt's parents house to stay the night. They got a new spa and we let Ellie stay up extra late so she could get in too. Made me miss living around the corner from them even more! The next day, we had a girls day while the guys went scouting. We met up with my sister in law, then came back to our house for a late lunch with the guys.
Sunday night I headed out with my girlfriend for Thomas Rhett and Jason Aldean and it was so much fun! We had lawn seats and she had backpack chairs that were genius! We got there late and had to park so far, so it was nice not to have to lug the chairs by hand on what felt like a hike. We had so much fun, we can't wait to go to another show! It was funny because we went back and forth for a few days on what to wear and when we got there, it was nearly dark and all we could do was laugh because our outfits didn't even matter anyways! We should have just worn our mom uniforms and some tennis. It definitely would have made our trek to and from the car more comfortable!
Both artists put on a great show and sound so good live!! Rhett talked a lot to the crowd and played music from other artists and pop songs, he was an amazing opening act. Aldean cut right to the chase and went from hit to hit. It was refreshing and I liked that he didn't talk a whole ton, but went just for the music. Especially since I had almost an hour drive back home and needed to be up at 5 for work. Thanks Jason!
These gorgeous rattles and teethers came in this weekend from Hey Jude Toy Co and I have a shop credit of $25 going on over on Instagram, be sure to check it out! Emma has been playing and gnawing on these babies non stop! I love the different sensors the wood and shapes offer, they're so cute too!
Ok, I'm signing off! Have a great night and a good week! xoxo
