Weekending + Christian's Eating!

Good morning! I'm happy to report I'm finally feeling back on track after returning from vacation… It only took 2 weeks. I had a wonderful weekend with family and catching up on stuff, I'd say it definitely helped. Here's a little Weekending recap.

{Friday}

-Friday I was worthless thanks to the Nordstrom sale going live. I finally narrowed it down to the above 3 items, they're on their way to me right now.

-Dinner at Red Robin with my step mom

-A quick run to Abercrombie where we both got a pair of jeans. Thanks to Kallie for the heads up on all jeans being 
$35.

-Cheesecake & wine on the patio to end the night. YUM. 

{Saturday}

-We spent the day with my family. It was so nice to see everyone, we failed at getting pictures though with all of us. 

I have to share a HUGE praise report. Since the accident Sept 1, Christian has been on a liquid diet through a tube in his stomach. Just this last week he started eating! He's even downed an entire hamburger and a milkshake! He's on a roll, he's got a lot of catching up to do :) He's such a rockstar.

{Sunday}

-Errands and chores; grocery shopping, car wash, food prep, cleaning, etc.

-Pixie enjoyed a nice little walk, then got mad over a bath.

-The Mr. made us a wine rack with a pallet he brought home. Score!

What did you do this weekend? Enjoy the Nordstrom sale at all?

  10. Girl, I have been so behind but I saw the post about Christian on Facebook and I was grinning ear to ear. My family was like whatcha so I told them and we were all PTLing (I just added the Ing to that acronym for the first time) also the nordstrom semi annual devoured my bank out account. For reall.
