The Last Weekend of August Was So Fetch

Morning, beautiful friends! I hope you had a great weekend, mine was pretty fabulous but pretty full of wonderful things. Since I was so busy, blog posting took a bit of a back seat and today's weekend recap is picture heavy and text light.

This weekend I [from L to R]:

+ Rocked my Sandlot shirt because it made me smile.

+ Had kickball practice on the National Mall and enjoyed the bright sunshine. Practice wasn't nearly as productive as last weekend's but we found some weakness to work on and I'm hopefully we will rock it out in Nashville.

+ Grabbed a quick two hours at the pool with Babyspice. I can't believe the pools close next week #sadface.

+ Spend the rest of Saturday prepping food for my 'Thank you for taking my certification BodyPump class' for my family. Le Husband did the heavy lifting making the homemade spaghetti sauce and homemade pasta, leaving me to make the homemade bread, brushetta and meatballs.

+ Loved how delicious our meal came out and was so happy my family enjoyed it as well. Mama B made her fabulous Oreo dessert and it was the perfect ending to a great evening. Babyspice, Le Husband and I had a great time talking politics while drinking wine and I found myself so grateful for my family :)!

+ Slept in way later than expected and had to get a jump start on the day. We were able to successfully get errands in before heading to a birthday brunch at Tupelo Honey. Somehow a single order of a mimosa turned into two and then we were gifted champagne for a toast. Y'all I'm waaaaaaay too old for a Sunday Funday, I came home and took a nap afterwards. #toooldforsundayfunday

+ Took a nap then heading to my weekly soccer game. After we played we all stayed to give our goalie a send off. He's having surgery and will be out for a few months, so Babyspice baked an awesome soccer cake and I brought wine and cookies for our celebration.

How was your weekend?
