Weekend Hangs

This past weekend was a fun one - definitely one I will always remember! Brayden and I got to hang out a lot and I enjoyed it so much!

Although my "weekend" doesn't typically begin until work is over on Friday, we do work a shorter day. It's nice because the weekend begins sooner for me! 

I started my Friday morning off with a little Christmas Blend and Peppermint Mocha. I'm just ready for some real fall/winter weather. We've had a tease once or twice but nothing stuck around so far!

I'm also not so much a fan of pumpkin or pumpkin spice. Believe me, I've tried to like it but it's just not a favorite of mine. Now peppermint on the other hand...I'll take it! 

On Friday night, I ran a nice and easy 3 miles around my neighborhood and it was dark by the time I finished! I haven't seen the moon on a run in a LONG time! I didn't want to push the pace because we had a scheduled 6 mile run the following morning.

On Saturday morning, my friend Kim came over to watch Brayden so I could go for a run with Heather. The weather was humid and sticky but I hear a nice cool front is expected this upcoming weekend. (I sure hope so because I have another long run scheduled!)

The miles flew by so fast! I love running with a buddy! :)

After the run, I brought Starbucks home for Kim and I to enjoy breakfast together.

Brayden and I also took a mid-morning nap! :) Pixie, too! By the way, Pixie has done MUCH better on the medications she was given...I'm so thankful!

After Brayden woke up, we did a little Halloween photo shoot of him in his "first Halloween" outfit!

Believe it or not, my dogs actually did not mind this one bit...

Madalynn actually sat down exactly where I told her to and she stayed put! Poor Pixie is used to this game by now! In her mind, I'm sure she's thinking..."oh lordy, here my momma goes again..."

Luckily they know...when we behave, there's treats to follow! Haha!

On Sunday, we went to church and Monkey Brayden just couldn't help himself! :)

We just HAD to take a picture together because we matched! (I was in a Minnie mouse dress and he obviously wore Mickey!)

After church, we spent a good bit of time outside "swimming" in what I assume will be the last swim of the year (I hope...because that would mean that cold weather is staying for good)!

I also spent time doing things around the house, washing clothes (fun fun), and organizing! I love a good, slow paced weekend! :)

Have a great week!


  1. Oh my gosh, aren't your three pumpkins adorable?!? Thanks for sharing!

  2. This fall tease was mean! I ran inside yesterday because it was 94, in October!

  3. Your photoshoot is adorable! My Labrador knows the drill when there is a camera involved.
    We finally close our swimming pool this weekend but know this week it is 85! Go figure. I don't mind one bit though.
    Glad Pixie is doing well!
