Weekend Scenes

During the month of September we didn't have one weekend where our whole family was away, between football weekends, a wedding, girls weekend, a bachelor party, etc.  it's been way too long since we've been home.

I wanted to fill the weekend with a bunch of fall activities and relaxing and that's just what we did! On Friday my mom, Tatum and I went shopping and had a great day out.  It's been so long since Tatum did a nap in his stroller, funny to think he used to do that all the time!

Derek was golfing Friday night so I poured a glass of wine and spent most of the evening in the playroom with Tatum.  After his bath and bedtime I made myself a salad and caught up on some tv.. a perfect relaxing night!

Saturday we were up early and headed over to the trail for a family walk.  When we got back in Derek made us a nice breakfast and it was Tatum's first time trying eggs and pancakes!  Derek and I both got our closets ready for fall while Tatum napped - just waiting on a cool crisp day!

We went to a local produce market to pick up some mums and pumpkins to decorate our porch for fall. We had planned to go to a farm and apple pick but it was way too crowded so we decided to skip it and go on a weekday - we decorated outside when we got home and then all got a bit of relaxing in.

Saturday night was date night!  Lovie and Poppy came over to watch Tatum and Derek and I headed out for sushi and drinks.

We had a lazy morning on Sunday which was awesome.  I love that it's just about fireplace season.. It always makes things more cozy.

There was a craft and food fair going on in town so we strolled Tatum up and down State Street and had a few good nibbles.

We finished off our weekend last night watching football with a big group of friends on their patio with tons of good football food... hoagies, wings, meatballs, all of the yummy stuff! 


  1. Tatum looks so cute in his Cowboys gear! Love all the fun you packed in at home this weekend. It's so nice to be able to travel and have lots of stuff going on, but at the same time, weekends at home soaking in the local stuff is just as nice!

  2. Much deserved date night for you guys! I'm loving the festive front porch and your shopping buddy is just the cutest!

  3. Girl I feel you on the missing time at home! We have a weekend at home this weekend, and I'm hoping that we get some fall activities in! I love Tatum's excited face with all the pumpkins! Too cute!

  4. Your Friday night sounds perfect!!! I'm so ready for it to get cool and crisp here!
