weekend highlights

I'm a little late on our weekend recap but maybe since I'm posting this mid-week, it will help the weekend come a little quicker? A girl can hope ;) I hardly took any photos of the weekend but I can assure you that even though I have little proof, it was one for the books!
  • I kept thinking it was Monday, so imagine my excitement when I realized late afternoon that it was Friday- YAY! Eric was able to get away from work earlier than normal so we celebrated with a family movie night! Mia chose Kung Fu Panda... we only made it through the first half hour before bed time... but it was enough to inspire Mia to try karate chopping anyone that came in sight. Oops! Gotta hide that movie until she's a little older, ha ha!
  • Saturday was one of the laziest days ever and Eric totally appreciated the recovery time! I did make it to spin and stopped at the grocery store... but the rest of the day was spent napping and watching shows!
  • That night I was able to cross something off my 30 before 30 list, I went to a concert with my other (girl) half, Courtney! It was a little toasty since the venue was an outdoor pavilion in Phoenix but we still had the best time! Sam Hunt, Hunter Hayes and Lady A performed... and now I'm DYING to go to another concert. I have a loooooong list of people I want to see, ha ha! Side note: Eric and I actually saw Lady A in concert years ago in my hometown in southern Utah. It was literally just a few months before their career really took off- there's no way they'd waste their time with going back to perform there again :) Too bad Eric pulled the tired card and didn't want to go with me to this concert so that we could reminisce about our early marriage days and how far we've come ;) But it was so great having a girls night while Eric and Mia got their own time together!
  • Sunday was yet again another lazy day. And this time I was the one who needed it since I kept my pregnant butt out until 1am the night before. Why yes, I'm STILL trying to recover from that... third trimester exhaustion is no joke! Other than going to church, we spent our day laying around and relaxing!
  • Monday was a busy day! We fit in a lot of work and a lot of play! While I was out running errands with Mia, Eric cleaned the bathrooms and our vehicles- bless him!! Mia went down for an early nap while I worked on laundry/cleaning, it's amazing how much gets done around the house with an extra set of helping hands... that aren't toddler hands ;) 
  • When Mia woke from her nap we ate lunch then headed out on an adventure! We stopped at Harley Davidson to pick up Eric's belated Father's Day gift... a wallet :) I'm not that good of a wife to get him a motorcycle, yet, ha ha! Although it's definitely coming and I can't say that I'm overly excited about the idea. We stopped at the mall for some window shopping then headed to the movies! We really wanted to take Mia to the minion movie but since it just came out, we decided to watch Inside Out instead, to avoid the crowds. Mia was SO excited to see a show and she did great in the theater! Of course when we told her we were going to get some popcorn she informed us that she wanted, "po-porn and a SODA!" We seriously couldn't believe our ears... that may be normal for another toddler to request soda, but we didn't realize she knew what that was! The past 2 weeks of traveling before this spoiled the crap out of Mia as she got soda in Mexico when we went out to eat (for obvious reasons we didn't drink the water) and then she was treated to more in Utah. We didn't indulge in soda but she didn't mind ;) We ended the night with dinner then headed home as quickly as we could since we were all exhausted!
 Not the best quality, but when your picture hating husband SUGGESTS taking this photo- you post it! (I know you're all as shocked as I am, ha ha!)
Three day weekends are the best and we could use a million more of those in our future, ha ha! We had the perfect amount of relaxing (and recouping) time, and LOVED the fun times! I'm so thankful I get to share these simple moments and adventures with Eric and Mia, my favorite people!!

It looks like you definitely had a jam packed last few days (with some resting days in there too). Love how Mia asked for po-porn and soda lol, but glad that she was ok not getting the soda part. Did she like Inside Out? I've heard nothing but good things!!

I don't listen to country music at all but when I was in Nashville last month I was pulled off the street and into a Hunter Hayes music video hahaha. You need to get to concerts more! I got to a few a month!!!!! They're my favorite!

LOVE that you got to cross off something on your list, that's awesome! And Mia Bug is as cute as ever.

Caroline @ Windy City Chic said...

Sounds like a fab weekend!! I'm glad that you were able to cross something off of your list, and that you guys all had a fun time together. I really want to see the Inside Out movie even though I'd be the oldest person there haha.. Did you guys like it?

Beautiful picture! That concert sounds like so much fun! Outdoor summer concerts are the best!

Brittany said...

Your hair is too cute at that concert! I wish I had you around to do my hair! How was Inside Out? I have heard awesome things and Minions looks SO cute! I'm usually not into cartoon movies anymore, but they both look awesome! Glad you had an awesome, relaxing weekend!

Desiree Macke said...

Your weekend sounds like the perfect mixture of fun and relaxing!
There are so many concerts I'd love to see. Lady A is on the list!! Kenny Chesney is here next weekend and I was thisclose to getting tickets. But, since I'm also thisclose to my due date I was worried I'd go into labor at the concert. HA!

Our Pretty Little Girls said...

It's hump day so yes, hope away! The weekend is halfway here!

Looks like you had a great weekend. I bet that concert was awesome and The Minion movie is totally on our to do list as soon as it makes it's way to the drive inn!

I’m so impressed that you made it out until 1 AM! You go girl! The minion movie looks so cute!

Sara Elizabeth said...

Love the minion photo!!! One of my high school friends was a designer for Inside Out! She said it took them SIX YEARS!? Can you imagine??? How was it?? :)

Elizabeth Birenbaum said...

Eric must love minions in order to SUGGEST taking a photo and sharing it! And they are both smiling. Winning!!
Also, SO jealous of your concert with your friend! I love all those artists and would love to see them! Though we're going to Kenny Chesney in a couple weeks so I guess I can't complain :)

Courtney [Sweet Turtle Soup] said...

hahaha cuteness at the karate chop. They pick up everything you'd rather they didn't.
Aria had her first soda when we saw Minions the other day. Highlight of her life. I wonder if she'll expect those at all the movies.

Janna Renee said...

Love lazy weekends, but it seems like y'all had fun too! Glad you are marking stuff off your 30x30! I'm having to redo mine because I have less than 6 months, and some of it is not realistic now with a baby, haha.
