Hello Monday {Weekend Recap}

Oh Monday, We meet again!! We had a pretty laid back weekend and it was just what we needed after getting back into our school grove!! 

So today I am linking up with Johannah for hello Monday!! 

Friday I spent most of the day volunteering at the elementary school! I made copies for Ella's class and started organizing the PTO storage trailer~~ 

So I made Taco Soup for dinner~~ I will be sharing the recipe on Wednesday, August 17th for Johannah and I's Recipe Club!! 

It was super YUMMY! 

Then we spent the rest of the evening watching the Opening Ceremonies!! 

Team USA

The doorbell rings around 8:30 and it was my sweet friend Stephanie just dropping off a "just because" gift!! I am BLESSED to have her in my life!!

Saturday we got up and headed to Grammy and Grandaddy's pool at their apartment complex!! 
Pizza, Sweet Tea, Wine, and the Olympics= a pretty good afternoon!! 

I said Ben "let's take a selfie" and this is the face I got:)

Ian was exhausted from the first week of school and swimming, so he just laid on the counter!! Oh Ian! 

Sunday we headed to church and lunch! Then my guys headed to the Golf Course!! 

Ella had to come home and clean her room...It was a MESS!! 

I will NEVER understand how she can make such a MESS! 
you ask why she is smiling?!?!?! 

She recruited her BFF to help!! :)

While they were cleaning, I was cleaning the rest of the house and folding laundry!! 

Meanwhile, Duke was napping. HA

I am happy to report that Ella's room and drawers are clean!! 

She really wants to redo her room, so I told her she had to keep her room clean for a month before I will spend the time, money, and effort to redo her room!! For Ella, this task will be HUGE!! 

Hope you guys had a great weekend!! 

xoxo, Heather 


  1. You guys had a great weekend!! I am absolutely loving the Olympics. Swimming and gymnastics are my absolute favorite to watch =)
    And can I also say I am sooo glad to see that there are other little girls besides Emma that have a hard time keeping their rooms clean! haha
    Have a great Monday, Heather =)

    1. I love swimming and gymnastics too! But my guys are so looking forward to golf:)
      Oh girl it's awful... Why oh why?!?!?
      She stepped on a toy and hurt her foot and you would have thought she was going to die! 😜

  2. Ella sounds like my daughter! Her room was a disaster and generally stays that way. I told her if she kept it clean she may get two sleepovers instead of one...we'll see! Have a great week!

  3. The Olympics made my weekend!! Love it so much!!

    1. Me too!! I love swimming and gymnastics. But my guys are so looking forward to golf!

  4. Sounds like a perfect weekend after a busy week of school! Can you send your friend Stephanie my address. I need a just because gift! :)
    I can't wait for your taco soup recipe! I love soup season! Have a great Monday!

    1. I'll send her right over! HA!
      The taco soup is so YUMMY!!

  5. Sounds like the PERFECT Saturday! I mean you just can't beat that combination!
