I can't tell you how much I love a weekend with no set plans and nothing we have to do. 

On Friday, Ben's class performed some short plays so I ate lunch with him at school before the performances. I can't believe he'll be done with 2nd grade on Thursday.

The people at Starburst finally gave the people what they wanted. An entire bag of pinks really is as good as it seems.

Things took a turn for the worse Friday night when I stuck my finger in a pot of boiling water while trying to stir some macaroni. It immediately blistered and the pain was SO bad even after putting aloe on it and wrapping it in gauze. I left it on overnight and thankfully when I woke up Saturday it felt much better. 

Luckily the burn didn't stop me and the boys from baking this strawberry banana cream cheese bread with fresh strawberries from the farmer's market.

It was supposed rain all day Saturday but when I saw the sun trying to peak through the clouds I decided to go a local "junk fest" where I saw the cutest bike display. And now I'm really wishing I'd taken this home with me.

Food truck goodness.

Jack ended up taking a late nap which turned into a 4 hour nap which meant he was wide awake at midnight. Whoops. Thank goodness he slept in until 9am Sunday morning. 

After a late start to our Sunday, I headed to the grocery store where I was finally able to find Halo Top ice cream. Have you all tried it? What flavors are your favorite?

I also made this Thai Chicken pizza from a recipe on Pinterest which tasted just as good as it looks.

After the kids went to bed I watched a few more episodes of The Handmaid's Tale and each one is more shocking than the last. Are you all watching this? 

And now were at Monday. Hope you all have a great start to the week!

  1. Oh my goodness! I'm sorry about your finger! I'm glad it's feeling better. That bread looks really good.

  2. Stopping by from the linkup! I hope your finger is better. Burns are the worst! All that food you posted is making me hungry. Glad you had a nice weekend despite the burn!

  3. I am on a Handmaid's Tale kick too and I just hate waiting each week for a new episode. Especially since the episode endings are getting crazy!
