we had a much needed relaxing weekend. i spent most of the day on saturday cleaning out our kitchen and packing up boxes for donation, thanks to a simplified life. it was a perfect weekend to kick off the new year.

how was your weekend?
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.
crosby and hudson warming up before the girls’ soccer game.
crosby said “it’s so freezing!”
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.
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!
crosby and his buddy huck are only seven days apart so we got to celebrate his third birthday this morning at the park!

how was your weekend?
after work on friday, we headed over to celebrate wyatt’s third birthday!
so much fun with these crazy kids!
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.
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!
on saturday afternoon, we had a dinner party with copycat restaurant recipes. it was so fun!
we had a ten mile run this morning. it was hard and humid. when is the fall weather coming?
the kids spent a lot of time on the patio in their swim suits today.
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.
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?!
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.
afterwards, we headed to o2b kids to celebrate kyler’s birthday, super hero style!
crosby says “cheeeeeese”!
happy birthday kyler girl!
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!
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!
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?
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.
Happy birthday to our sweet nuggets!
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!
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.
friday night and saturday morning was dedicated to birthday party prep!
saturday afternoon was birthday party time! i didn’t get nearly enough pictures, but i will share what i do have soon.
sunday morning started at 4am with the lake nona half marathon! again, more pictures to come.
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!
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!
i can’t even believe october is almost over. how was your weekend?
