Weekend Recap

It's hard to write a weekend recap when today is not only the anniversary of 9/11, but there is also so much devastation in our country. J's aunt and uncle as well as several of his cousins live in Ft. Meyers, Florida. They didn't evacuate and have prepared everything as much as possible. They're keeping us updated and as of now they've lost power and the streets are flooded, but no water in their house. It's heartbreaking what is happening, but also amazing to see the outpouring of love and support. Just like this day 16 years ago, complete strangers are reaching out and helping one another and it's encouraging and inspiring to witness it. There's no better reminder than today that life is short and to live it to the fullest. 

Saturday morning my MIL and I went to a flea market and antique store. I found this gorgeous pitcher  that looked just like one I wanted from Target except this one cost $4. And I actually ended up only paying $3 after asking if he'd take less :)

By Saturday evening Jack had developed a pretty bad cough and low grade fever. Both boys fell asleep early and J and I watched the original It. J had seen bits and pieces and I'd never seen it. It wasn't really what I thought it was going to be like and honestly, I didn't love it especially since it was 3 hours long. Anybody see the remake?

Saturday night into Sunday morning ended up being rough. Jack was up every half hour coughing or crying and just couldn't get comfortable. By morning time we were both exhausted and running on hardly any sleep. For those of you that don't know, Jack was diagnosed with asthma last year and although it rarely flares up, when he gets a bad cold/cough it can make it worse. After breathing pretty hard for a couple of hours we gave him a breathing treatment and it seemed to help a lot.

While Jack napped and Ben played outside with neighbors I made these S'mores Rice Krispies. They are seriously addicting. Recipe coming this week.

I also made these Asian Chicken Meatballs that unfortunately looked much better than they tasted. 

In between 9 loads of laundry I put up my fall wreath, got my forrest friends out of storage, and burned my favorite BBW's scent, Leaves. Fall has arrived at my house!

 Hope you all had a great weekend and are somewhere safe and dry.
