Weekend Recap and MPM (on Tuesday!)

Wow, what a weekend! 

Football, fun, and family pretty much sums it up.

We kicked off the fun with Friday Night Lights and Addi’s pre-football game cheer performance.  {Video coming soon.}  The boys stayed for the game’s entirety, while us girls bowed out at halftime with a Sonic stop on our way home.

Saturday morning began with preparations for tailgating and the Iowa State season opener.  We were headed for Cyclone Country by 10:15 and despite the heat, no naps, and an all-round long day, everyone did fantastically.  Especially our beloved Cyclones, who put on quite the show and got the W.

Sunday brought church, lunch, and swimming at my parent’s, followed by a birthday celebration in J’s honor with his family Sunday evening.

And, finally, yesterday – Labor Day.  Or the day of non-labor as I like to call it, since we did a whole lotta much needed nothingness.  It was wonderful.  J and I got our workouts in early, then I ran a few errands, while he did fantasy football draft prep.  The kids and I wrapped up the long weekend with a picnic dinner in the living room and J spent the evening drafting an “awesome” (his word, not mine) fantasy (“pretend” – my word, not his) team with friends.

That brings us to today, also known as reality.  Blah. But!  We’ve got a less busy shortened week, some fun things to look forward to, and my meals are planned.  Here’s what I’ll be forcing my children to eat this week.

Monday: We had homemade pizza rolls

Tuesday: Slow Cooker Chicken Enchiladas (carry over from last week)

Wednesday: I’m eating dinner with friends, so J’s on his own for grilled cheese.

Thursday: Shepherd’s Pie

Friday: We might finally get around eating the Bubble Up Enchiladas that I’ve had planned for 3 weeks now.

Here’s to a 4 day week!
