heather and i ran and enjoyed some cool temperatures for five miles on saturday morning. i wore my long sleeves and our run ended at starbucks, so already our day was off to a good start.

Untitled

crosby said “it’s so freezing!”

Untitled

the little monsters had their last soccer game of the season on saturday. they played awesome and kenley scored another goal! they had such a great season and kenley improved vastly from last season.

Untitled

saturday afternoon, we headed to legoland for brick or treat! the kids got to wear their halloween costumes and looked incredible! i have a lot of photos from the day, so i will share more soon!

Untitled

after work on friday, we headed over to celebrate wyatt’s third birthday!

Untitled

so much fun with these crazy kids!

Untitled

we were at the soccer field first thing on saturday morning. crosby thinks he is on the team and will warm up, do drills, and shake hands at the end of the game, but during the game he is so sad that he can’t play. he had big crocodile tears on saturday when the game started and he had to sit on the sidelines.

Untitled

the little monsters had two games in a row on saturday, which is crazy for a group of four year olds, but they did such a great job!

Untitled

on saturday afternoon, we had a dinner party with copycat restaurant recipes. it was so fun!

Untitled

we had a ten mile run this morning. it was hard and humid. when is the fall weather coming?

Untitled

the kids spent a lot of time on the patio in their swim suits today.

Untitled

of course this one refused to nap today when greg was at work all day. i sat on the couch for a good twenty minutes and just watched him play so sweetly by himself while kenley was sleeping.

Untitled

we went to the park for a little bit, but it’s just too hot for that nonsense. the rest of the day these two played together so nicely while i got a lot done around the house. we finished the day and celebrated national cheeseburger day at smashburger for dinner.

***

we had a great weekend! how was yours?!

Untitled

greg worked on friday night so the kiddos and i held down the house. heather and i got up saturday morning to run and the weather was absolutely horrible. it was cold and so windy so our 8 miles turned into 6 and i was perfectly fine with that decision.

Untitled

afterwards, we headed to o2b kids to celebrate kyler’s birthday, super hero style!

Untitled

crosby says “cheeeeeese”!

Untitled

happy birthday kyler girl!

Untitled

we debated having a fire on saturday night but figured it was too cold for that and we wouldn’t enjoy it, so we watched the martian instead on our warm, comfy couch. it was really good!

Untitled

kenley and i did a little craft together this morning after i saw this pin on pinterest. we modified it a little and used washi tape instead of ribbon, so now she has festive artwork in her bedroom!

Untitled

i headed to panera to get some work done when the kids went down for their nap and ended up meeting a friend for a chat and a quick trip to target. we ended the day with a very quick trip to the y and a broncos victory!

we had a fun, chilly weekend. how was yours?

Choo Choos and Tutus

Last month, we celebrated Kenley’s 4th birthday and Crosby’s 2nd birthday with a joint party. I really wanted to do a “Choo Choo I’m 2” theme for Crosby. He is obsessed with all things trains so the theme would have been absolutely perfect, but I wasn’t sure how I would make that a boy/girl birthday party. Thankfully, Pinterest had me covered. I quickly found a Choo Choo and Tutu theme party invitation and I was sold.

I did a horrible job of taking pictures before (or even during) the party, so I will list the sources of inspiration and where I got the items, even if they are not pictured.

I ordered the invitation and printable party pack from swankypress on Etsy and printed everything myself. We opted for Publix cupcakes this year since they are half the price of Sweet and just as delicious. They did not disappoint!

I just love paper straws and I got the most perfect set in navy, pink, and gold from MoreSprinkledJoy on Etsy. The menu included fruit, veggies, meatball, peanut butter and jelly sandwich halves, buffalo chicken dip, juice pouches, water, and beer.

The party favors were pink tutus and conductor hats. Crosby was rocking a pink tutu by the end of the night and looked pretty darn cute in it. I got Kenley’s pettiskirt for free with the purchase of the tutus, which was awesome! Their birthday shirts were from Old Navy (here and here).

The plates and cutlery were Cheeky from Target since the colors matched up great and it was one less stop I had to make. I love their stuff!

We did an open house style so guests could come and go as they please. There were a lot of kids running around at one point (hence why the pictures are scarce), but it was such a great day. The kids had an awesome time and loved having their friends over.

Untitled

we tried out blaze on friday for lunch. so delicious and the name and smiley face was a nice touch. we’ll definitely be back!

Untitled

by the time i got home on friday, the kids had already gone swimming, taken a bath, and were in their pjs! daddy doesn’t mess around. that left us time to go for a walk around the block to check out the “spooky” decorations.

Untitled

friday night and saturday morning was dedicated to birthday party prep!

Untitled

saturday afternoon was birthday party time! i didn’t get nearly enough pictures, but i will share what i do have soon.

Untitled

sunday morning started at 4am with the lake nona half marathon! again, more pictures to come.

Untitled

greg and i headed down to the usa women’s soccer game against brazil at the citrus bowl in the afternoon. it was our first time there and our first time seeing a live soccer game. it was super fun and really exciting!

Untitled

afterwards, we headed downtown for dinner & drinks with friends before falling into bed at 9pm from pure exhaustion.

we had a crazy, busy weekend, but it was so fun!

Untitled

after working on saturday morning, i headed up to great day in the country to help out sally at her booth. we had a lot of visitors and had a fun day chatting away. i headed home with this darling garland from another cute little booth.

Untitled

i came home to see that this one convinced daddy to let her wear her pineapple dress. on a chilly november day.

Untitled

after a beautiful day yesterday, kayla and i had plans to run this morning. it was in the 50s and raining the entire time we ran our 8 miles. surprisingly it wasn’t too bad but a hot shower and hot coffee were much needed.

Untitled

we built a lot of fun things this weekend.

Untitled

this one. he went into the shower today and grabbed the shaving cream then went right into the bathroom and threw it into the toilet. you can’t leave him alone for a second.

Untitled

we celebrated charlie’s 5th birthday today with a fun minion party and this yummy cake!

Untitled

these two are only six weeks apart, but it’s amazing what a difference six weeks makes at this age. they are too cute.

we had a good, but busy weekend and i failed miserably at taking pictures. better luck next weekend.
