Beating the Heat and a very #MIMM

Happy Monday

I have to be honest, every time the weekend draws to a close I get a little more sad.  The truth is, for the most part every day feels like the weekend but every time Monday rolls around I know that another week has past.  Summer is going by way to fast.  I was OK a couple of weeks ago when it was the 4th of July but now we are headed into the final 11 days of July and August is even shorter  month!  End of July means that the stores are filled with back to school deals and fall clothes.  Heck, at Costco this weekend they even had their Halloween costumes on display.  Seriously Costco, I love you but COME ON!!!


This summer has really been marvelous!

After a pretty cool first 1/2 of the summer, Chicago has turned up the heat and I really don’t mind!  It’s harder for B with his cranial helmet and we have to be much more careful with him but I’m OK with some heat.  So while Sara and I spent time at the pool this weekend keeping cool, B spent most of his time kicking it with Elmo inside!


Outside time for him was before the 8am hour.


Of course we did get out Sunday for a very special family event to head to a party with the Stanley Cup!  This picture is a keeper!!


We are still waiting to get our hands on the family picture.  The one on my phone didn’t come out but thankfully their was a photographer who also took pics!!  It was truly an amazing experience.  Sara, thinks the Stanley Cup is the biggest and coolest trophy she’s ever seen….it’s quite amazing to see in person!

The Hubs and I got out Friday for a little day lunch date and then picked out kitchen appliances!  I’m getting my double oven and new dishwasher along with a new kitchen floor next month!  So freaking excited!!!

Does anyone else get excited by new kitchen appliances?

Sars is off this week for camp and we are headed away for a few days to Wisconsin.  I’ll pop in when I can!!

What did you do this weekend?
