Now linking up with the lovely Biana, sharing a few tidbits from the weekend as I usually do on Monday mornings. It was a fairly quiet one around here which was exactly what the Doctor ordered after traveling to Denver last weekend.

- Happy hour and Thai food for dinner with K
- Catching up on some shows at home and falling asleep super early
- Zero photos were taken on Friday

- K was out of town so I had the day to myself
- Lunch date and catching up with a girl friend at a Caribbean restaurant
- Grocery, errands, and relaxing at home for a bit
- In the evening I visited another girl friend and her 6-month baby boy. Got lots of giggles and play time with Baby Cam. If you follow me on instagram, you might have seen the cutest video of our play time.
Such a happy baby!

- Cam's Grandma offered to babysit while Momma H and I went out for some much needed girl time and long overdue catching! SnapChat funnies happened. Love this girl!

- Coffee and Lola snuggles in the morning

- All the Sunday things - laundry, cleaning, food prep and blogging
- K came home from Tampa so we hung out
- Chatted with my mom on the phone
- Made this awesome Texas BBQ Pulled Pork recipe in the crockpot for dinner

- Early to bed to feel refreshed this morning.

Cheers to a new week and the long weekend ahead!

  9. Oh man, the back to school days. I feel like wearing a uniform would have sucked but at least you didn't have to worry about what you had to wear every day! Glad you had a great weekend!

  10. Ugly uniforms indeed. I may steal this post idea! lol

  11. This was so fun to read through-- I loved Saved By the Bell too, but I think I only got to watch it on mornings when I was home sick. It sounds like you had such a fun weekend-- such a cute baby & the pulled pork you made sounds delicious!

  12. Oh I loved reading your answers. Oh I loved Saved By the Bell. I use to watch it everyday after school!! Oh I too wore a uniform! The biggest decision would be what socks to wear.

  13. I loved Saved by the Bell!!! I used to set it up to record and act it out with my barbies, lol!!

  14. I loved Saved by the Bell when I was younger! Also your dog is so cute!

  15. I've never watched that show! You don't remember your school's mascot?? Thanks for linking up with the Blended Blog!

  16. Oh I loved saved by the bell! What a fun crew; but I don't think they aired until I was in 7th or 8th grade.
