Labor Day Weekend

Ahhh. Aren't three day weekends so nice? I love when they don't fly by and actually feel like three long days which is how this weekend felt. It was wonderful!

Friday night we went to eat with some friends. We went to a burger restaurant so naturally I got chicken tacos. I don't know WHY I do this but I always get opposite of what you should get at a restaurant. For example, if you go to a breakfast place you should get breakfast food, not a steak. So if I go to a burger place I should get a burger not tacos! This is similar to my Seasonal Food internal battle.

Eli went with us and we had so much fun with him. I'm so glad that he is such a good baby and easy to take with us. I'm sure as he gets more active it will get more difficult but right now he is so easy!

Saturday was kind of a "nothing" day but I love those days. We all woke up with Eli around 7 and then all fell back to sleep with Eli for his morning nap around 8:30. It's weird to me that he naps so soon after waking up but he always falls asleep at that time like clockwork! We played with Eli during the day. Here he is laughing at his dad. He looooooves his daddio.
Saturday night Luke went to a football game with his parents and I stayed home with Eli. I enjoy a football game here in there but I wanted to just stay home with Eli on Saturday. We had a fun night. He ate his dinner and sucked his thumb in between each feeding which created a giant mess. But he's so cute, I don't even care.
Sunday my parents came for a couple of hours to visit us. AKA see Eli.

Monday I got my hair trimmed and colored. I usually go dark around this time of the year. I knew I wanted to go dark with my hair but I didn't want it all one color. I wanted a couple of different tones.

I took this picture from Pinterest to show my hair stylist (I told you, I'm obsessed)

And this is how it turned out, I love it. (my spacing is off. love/hate blogger)


Monday night we gave Eli peas for the first time. He didn't even bat an eye. He didn't make a face or act like it was any different than what he has been eating. The boy just likes food. Plain and simple.
So that was our Labor Day weekend.

Also, I've received several emails and tweets from people who are interested in trying Scentsy. Well today is your lucky day! Head over Blue Eyed Bride's blog, she is hosting a Scentsy giveaway for me and one winner will receive a full size warmer and a scent bar of their choice. So be sure and enter the giveaway!

Love the hair! I just went dark too, which is drastic, but I'm loving it. :)

Also, Eli looks so squeezable as always!

Much love,

Um, hi skinny mama! I love your dark hair! Could Eli be any cuter? No, he couldn't. Glad y'all had a nice relaxing weekend!

Everyone is going darker, and it's making me want to do the same.

Peas aren't a favorite in our household, but mixed with other things, they're okay...and not nearly as bad as broccoli. ;)
