happy monday!

{I am mytrashandtreasure on instagram if you care to follow!}

Hi friends!  Welcome back to the weekday.  We had a short and fast weekend here.  It went by so quickly.  And as I type this, I literally cannot remember what happened on Saturday.  I. Can't. Remember.  Oh!  I remember.  Sorry.  Brian went swimming with the littles while I did a little gardening, and then we had an afternoon date.  Lunch and a movie.  We went to a sushi/hibachi place.  And Brian, ever the adventurer, ate sushi in the middle of nowhere Missouri.  Luckily his guts are made of tough stuff from years spent abroad, trying every cuisine out there.  And I ate vegetable hibachi, made from food that the hibachi chef threw in the air and caught in his hat.  Maybe I'm the more adventurous, who knows. 

It was fun to get out and be without the littles for a bit.  It's pretty necessary to a marriage!  We had decided to spend the rest of the weekend laying low, which never happens.  And it didn't.  We ended up inviting the neighbors over for a swim and a cookout last night.  I'm never sorry when we have people over.  First of all, it was a great excuse to get the place cleaned up a bit, and for Brian to hang up pretty lights outside.  I like a good excuse to hang up party lights, don't you?  And second, we had fun with our neighbors.  The littles especially perk up at any whiff of a party. 

So how do you lay low on a weekend?  Or do things end up popping up like in our lives?


  1. I would like a bigger picture of the outdoor lighting. Looks great! Especially at dusk! And I also especially like the picture of Roawn, deep in thought, in the sunglasses. And what are those pillows? Fun!!!

    1. Uh, that would be ROWAN.

  2. Sounds like a nice week-end. I love going for japanese even though I don't actually like sushi. We are the worste about doing anything without Wyatt. The worste!

  3. I would LOVE to come over for a pool party! Miss you R! Little J says hi to his Auntie!
