Weekend Recap {Birthday Weekend}

Saturdays are amazing. Birthdays are amazing. And when your birthday happens to fall on a Saturday it's like you've hit the jackpot. 

Fall temperatures graced us with their presence this weekend and I made my first official batch of chili Friday night. We let the kids stay up as late as they wanted and J and I rented Independence Day Resurgence which despite horrible reviews, was actually pretty good.

Saturday morning we made our usual donut/bagel run and then the boys gave me their gifts. J got me a new Kate Spade purse and the boys got me a selfie stick. Let the selfies begin! And before you go thinking that my husband picked out a purse all on his own, I sent him the link to this exact one and told him to buy it :) This way he doesn't get anxiety over what to get me and I don't get anxiety over what he may buy :)

After presents the boys and I went to a neighborhood garage sale and then to a farm showcase. They have hayrides, pumpkins, and tons of animals for the kids to pet as well as a cow they can milk.

Although I failed to document it, we went to lunch with J's family and then my MIL took the boys for the night. I headed to Marshalls and then grabbed a drink (or two) with some girlfriends before J and I went to our favorite steakhouse for dinner. When we don't have kids, J and I usually go to dinner around 8:00 or so but we went around 6:30pm which meant I was in bed and asleep by 9:03pm. It was the perfect ending to a great birthday!

Sunday was a lazy morning and after making breakfast I headed to Target. Alone. I haven't done that in forever and man it feels good to just walk around and look at everything. I ended up getting these two pairs of flats and ordered the boots online since my Target didn't carry them. While I was ordering the boots however I noticed that shoes/clothing were all 20% off online only so I ordered them online and will be returning the store bought ones. 

Although I didn't end up getting it, I loved this Champagne Campaign shirt. 

Our weekend ended like usual with cleaning, laundry, and getting ready for the week ahead. Bring on October!
