Weekend Round Up!

Oh Monday. You came a little too quickly for me this week.

Even though I don't have a "job" per say (but seriously, this stay at home business is 24/7 duty here) that makes me dread Mondays, I always look forward to weekends when Derek is home because...well, weekends mean he's home. 

This weekend ended up being a fairly busy one for us. Saturday began with our usual weekend Costco run. We love Costco. Seriously. Conner likes it because he gets to sit in the basket of the oversized carts and eat snacks, and Derek and I like it because we browse every aisle checking out the different gadgets and snacks they've stocked lately...and of course because of the samples. Let's face it: everyone loves samples. We also had a party to go to that afternoon, and Costco is always a great place to find interesting snacks. We grabbed a bag of pita chips and this cheddar pimento dip that is kind of amazeballs to bring with us (because I hate showing up anywhere empty handed). Late Saturday afternoon we headed to a promotion party or "wet down" for one of the guys Derek works with. It's always great to see everyone in our little Army family. And the food was super yummy. We munched on bulgogi, steamed rice, salad, bread, dips and fruits. I love that kind of stuff :)

Sunday is always our big errand day. Conner and Derek both needed haircuts so we started out heading to the PX barber shop on our base. One of the ladies who works there is absolutely fabulous with kids and Conner loves her, so we always make a point to see her. Conner sits in Daddy's lap, Miss Tip hands him a fistful of lollipops and a mirror and the dude is pleasent as can be. She was seriously a lifesaver when Derek was deployed and Conner was in an "I hate haircuts" phase. Now he sits happily :)

After haircuts we picked up a few things in the Exchange and headed to the commissary. We relaxed a bit afterwards and then enjoyed "make your own pizza night" for dinner. Always a fave :)

Now that it's Monday and rainy and chilly here on the West Coast, Conner and I are both nursing colds and hanging indoors. You'll find me on the couch with a hot cup of something during nap time for sure. BUT I do have a rockin' pot of homemade meatballs and tomato gravy on the stove to cook all day for dinner tonight, so that's a definite win!

Hope you all have a great week!
