Weekend Recap: Fun with Friends edition!

We had a blast this weekend.  It wasn't quite as busy as last weekend, but it sure was fun!  We spent a lot of time with friends, but not a lot of time taking pictures - haha.  Here's what we were up to:


Matt's Mamaw Lucy was in town at the end of this week from Louisiana.  The kids and I had dinner with her on Thursday night while Matt had a work function.  Friday night, Matt and the kids went to dinner with her again while I had a girl's night.  Emily came up with the fun idea to have a "Plaids and Pins" night - we all wore plaid and made new fall recipes from Pinterest.  

While Matt and the kids were at dinner, I got busy on my recipe: apple pie cupcakes!

Of course I had to try one before I went to make sure it wasn't disgusting.  ;)  I'm not a huge apple pie person, but these were yummy!  You can find the recipe here.

There were only 6 of us at the party, but we had enough food for more than double that!  We enjoyed stuffing our faces and good conversation.

Saturday morning, Matt left the house super early (think: 5:15) to go hunting.  Thankfully, both kids slept in for me until 7!  Woo hoo!  We had a relaxed morning at home.  Saturday was my double work-out day and holy cow!  I have never burned that many calories in one workout without being in the gym!

After naps, our friends John and Margaret came over with their son John Aiden.  We put a fire in the fire pit, and sat around while the kids had a blast running around and playing.  We had a yummy dinner of hotdogs cooked over the fire, chips, and s'mores!

Cute kiddos!

We kicked Sunday morning off with dressing for cold weather and church!

The boys matched...

...and the girl's matched!

After church, we ran by the grocery store, and then we spent the rest of the day doing chores, napping, and getting ready for the week.  We are 5 days and counting until Thanksgiving break!  We can do it!
