Oh, Sweet Weekend!

Oh long weekend, you made me so very happy! These last few days have been nothing short of completely blissful.
I took Friday off, because my fabulous family was in from out of town, and I loved every wonderful minute of this delightful weekend!



I slept in for the first time in ages. Went on a long walk with mom + dad + sister + pups. Destination = Starbucks. We enjoyed the nice weather from a little sidewalk cafe table.

Went over to BF's casa for a wonderful BBQ party. I was very happy to spend time with BF, his best friend {who is visiting from CO} + brother + fam over yummy food and drinks. Lovely evening.


Up at the break of dawn to drive to a blueberry partch in the middle of nowhere with mom + sis + cousins. We picked over 15 lbs. of blueberries {which were partially turned into to whole wheat blueberry pancakes on Sunday}. Enjoyed a nice long nap before dinner at one of my favorite places!

Spent the rest of the evening at the US National Youth soccer championship game. Total blast!


Woke up to sweet puppy kisses and the smell of yummy coffee. Mom and dad helped me pretty up my little apartment before we enjoyed breakfast together. Went for a short walk with the dogs, a quick swim and then off to watch Manchester united play the KC Wizards.

Brought BF + the boys some gourmet cupcakes from Smallcakes after the fam left for home. Got hooked on a new show {Friday Night Lights} and enjoyed some R&R with BF & co.

{ Went to bed with a BIG smile on my face! }


What a lovely, relaxing weekend!

PS- Don't forget to check out the BRAND NEW Mingle Monday party!


  1. I wish I would've seen you at the championship game! I was a bit busy with my precious nieces and nephew though! So glad you had a fabulous weekend!

    Weekends where you go to bed with a smile on your face are the BEST! I too, love it when my family visits after being away from them for so long. Nothing beats that! Hope your week is just as happy!

  3. Thanks for visitng my blog! Sounds like a great weekend and those strawberries look YUMMY!

  4. I'm glad you had such a relaxing weekend! Whole wheat blueberry pancakes are my favorite :)

  5. Sounds like a lovely weekend! Nice to meet another KC area bloggers!

  6. The worst part about downgrading to my parents' small town after college = the lack of gourmet cupcakes. I miss them dearly. The BF and the boys are very lucky!
