Scenes from my weekend…

Oh Monday how quickly you sneak up on us.

Here are a couple of peeks from our holiday weekend.

We hosted a little get together on the 4th and had all intentions to eat outdoors, but mother nature had other plans.

{I was playing around with tablescapes the day before, but alas we weren’t able to use it due to rain.}

I didn’t want to stress out hosting on the 4th so we kept things simple. We had help from both sets of parents with one bringing appitizers and the other set providing beverages so that was super helpful. My sister bought over desserts and we cooked up some kebobs on the grill. I couldn’t resist picking up some glazed donuts for dessert as well, because it just seemed so all American and lets face it I have a huge sweet tooth. My sister set up the dessert table and I love how she dressed up my plain glazed donuts with sprinkles!

On Saturday we headed out east bright and early for a get together and fun was had by all. I even put away my iphone for most of the day, which was surprisingly nice.

Since we were celebrating the 4th on the 5th I decided to wear a little red (ok so it was really orange), white and blue.

The best part of our day out east was getting to see Hudson hang out with his cousins. He loves little friends so it was great to see him play.

We got home on the late side Saturday night, but try telling that to Hudson and Asher who were up bright and early. For some reason in my sleep deprived state I decided it was the perfect time to clean up this mess of a closet:

{Yes that is still my wedding dress from almost 8 years ago hanging at the back of my closet door covered by massive collection of scarves. Whoops!}

I would love to post an after shot, but even after a handful of hours cleaning it the end results don’t love that photo worthy. Everything is more organzied though and I discarded bags of clothes/shoes/handbags that I didn’t wear anymore so, it’s a win.

We then spent the afternoon with my side of the family at my parents house in their newly re-vamped patio.

The long weekend ended with all of us at home watching Finding Nemo before bed and this momma had her hands full with lots of love and affection for my little guys.

Hope you all had an enjoyable holiday weekend!
