busy busy weekend

Wow! This weekend was so busy!!! We seriously barely had time to sit down and breathe.  In fact that's part of the reason I am just now blogging about our weekend.  It was rainy yesterday so we took that as a sign to stay at home and rest all day!!  

Our busy weekend all started Thursday evening when Matt and I had a Trinity Clinic Awards Dinner at Hollytree Country Club.  We got a babysitter and enjoyed a night out to ourselves.  Sadly, I didn't get a single picture of us.  

Friday during the day, the boys and I took a trip to Sam's! We love going to Sam's to get samples and have pizza for lunch while I get some grocery shopping done.  It's the only time I go to the grocery store with them now.  
Friday evening after dinner, a friend of ours helped us up pick up some furniture I bought off of a Facebook Garage Sale Site.  

I picked up this awesome Pottery Barn Sleeper Sofa for only $300. It's all washable so it's perfect for us.   
 This picture makes the room look totally empty but it's very very deceiving.  The other walls are full of toys!! It's in our playroom.  It's actually a really big 5th bedroom in our house that we use as a playroom.  I've been wanting a couch since we moved in, but just couldn't find what I wanted in my $300 price range.  I refused to pay anymore than that for a couch that was going to used constantly by my boys.  I wasn't originally looking for a sleeper sofa, but it was just a total bonus that this one was.  In fact, we will be putting it to use this week.  Pearson will be sleeping on it this week when my parents and grandma come in town.  Now I can't get wait to get to decorating this space!! That big blank wall is just screaming "wall collage"!!!
 We also got a great deal on a lift chair for my parents.   It's a $1500 chair that we got for $500.  It's in perfect condition.  It's going to stay at my house until my parents can bring a friend to Tyler to help them move it back home since we don't have a truck.  We just went ahead an rearranged our furniture so it would fit in and not just be a random chair hanging out in our house.  
 After we got the kids to bed, I headed to the grocery store for my weekly grocery shopping trip.  The last two weeks I have gone on a Saturday night and it's been glorious.  We had plans Saturday night so I went on Friday night.  Just as glorious!!! I may never shop with my children again.  
 Before our soccer game on Saturday morning, the boys were getting some good use out of Pops chair.  Now that we have a chair in our living room, I really want to get one of our own.  We've just always had the sectional and that's it.  
 Nash wasn't really into watching Pearson play soccer so he watched a show on Daddy's phone during most of the game.  
 Our little all-star score 9 out of 11 goals for our team.  He is quite the soccer player.  We are so proud!!
 The Baylor Alumni group here in Tyler had a little playdate at the park so we joined up with some of Matt's college buddies and let our kids play at the park.  The boys just love when Daddy is at the park with them.  He knows how to have a good time! He's such a good Daddy.  
 We enjoyed BOGO Chipotle for lunch, then headed home for naps.  I thought for sure Nash would crash after such a busy morning, but he was too busy checking out his new found freedom.  Matt was outside mowing and Nash just decided to check it out.  Nash was doing so good in his big boy bed, but this weekend was a little tough.  
 Friday evening we invited our friends, Kiley & Zach, over for dinner and spades.  We had already invited them over before he helped up pick up furniture, but it was the perfect way to pay him back the favor.  Clearly you can tell we had a 4 year old photographer!
 I feel like we are always rushed to get out the door on Sunday mornings by 9:40, but I always make sure to get my Link Sunday Portrait.  If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that I take a picture of my boys every Sunday morning with the hashtag #linksundayportrait.  It's such a fun little tradition that I started and hope to never give it up.  
 One of our friend from our Sunday School Class was getting baptized in the main worship.  We celebrated with her then slipped out and headed to Resonate Worship.  It what the older people of our church would call "rock worship".  But it's more our style and not the tradition Baptist church choir feel like the main service is.  We have our own worship and then they pipe in the pastor on the big screen. We love Resonate at Green Acres. 
 We dashed home for a quick lunch and a super quick nap for Nash then we headed to Pearson's little friend Jackson's birthday party.  It was a monster truck themed party, so my boys were in heaven!!
The boys had their normal "Mac N Cheese Sunday" for dinner, we dropped them off at AWANAS, then Matt and I tried out a little Italian restaurant for dinner.  

And then they crashed.  
 And yes, Nash is asleep in this picture.
Like I said, we had a busy busy weekend, but it was so good!!  
All we have planned for this weekend is soccer and AWANAS.  I'm kind of hoping it stays that way.  We definitely need a slower paced weekend after this past weekend!!
