With a massive snow storm on the horizon it has been a bit nutty around town with supermarkets clearing out their shelves and everyone filling up at the gas stations. I tend not to freak out that much due to snow so our weekend was a bit normal.
We started out our Saturday at soccer, then enjoyed our typical bagel breakfast and then got to meet with someone to figure out some mortgage/house stuff. Fun times.
After that Jon and I got to run some errands kids free. Asher ended up passing out at my parents house and Hudson wanted to stay and play so off we went on our own.
We hit up Home Depot for some project supplies and I spied this laminatethat looked so pretty it stopped me in my tracks. It has a perfect rustic yet chic vibe to it and the price can’t be beat at .79 a sq ft.
I had heard that JCP was having a crazy clearance sale and I always do well there for the boys clothes so we headed there next. It was blissful. I got to go through all of the racks and not have to worry about a thing. Plus we picked up a bunch of cute things for them.
We got a little crazy and decided to go wander around the mall a bit, because it had been a while since we had been in there. We had fun, but I started to feel guilty that I didn’t have the boys with us. Especially once we saw the new Lego store! Hudson is obsessed with the movie.
Of course we had to go in and buy some for Hudson. Once I found the double double couch set I knew that was the one.
We ended our exciting Saturday with a trip to a new to me food truck called, The Big Cheese. They specialize in grilled cheese sandwiches.
I ended up trying out there grilled cheese stuffed with macaroni and cheese. I order a small and it was massive!
It was delicious and if you live in Nassau County, Long Island I recommend trying it out. I can’t imagine having it on a daily or weekly basis, but as an occasional treat it is well worth the splurge.
On Sunday I got to enjoy a little time catching up some design books:
While this little man had a Sunday snooze:
After a lazy morning at home we headed out to Brooklyn with my parents and meet up with my sisters and their respective boyfriends that are both named Steve. I’m convinced Hudson thinks all males in their 20’s need to be named Steve. We tried out a new cupcake shop and then headed out for a late lunch.
When we got home I got some work done while my guys watched Bolt and played with Legos. Along with design work I also needed to do some research for my sister’s 30th birthday! She turns 30 on the 30th so it’s quite the big deal. For the big bash I’m in charge of desserts and have also decided to bring a couple little decor accents for the dessert table. Number one on my list is some glittery champagne bottles. I’m off to the craft store tomorrow to pick up supplies and will report back with how it goes. I didn’t want to waste a bottle of champagne for this project so I picked some inexpensive apple cider at Trader Joes.
Ah why oh why do the weekends go by so fast?
