Weekend whereabouts!

Monday, you’re back around and I’m really wondering why you can’t be more like Saturday?!

My dad turned 60 this last week and his only request for his birthday was a day filled with us kids!  So we did what any perfect children would do.. set out for Madison for a super quick weekend! 😂 I mean, I’m not kidding when I say quick…

We got into town around 8:45 Friday night and headed out for a quick drink and some dinner with my sister and BIL at a quaint local bar.

It’s not something we normally do (go out and about – just us) when we’re with them but hopefully it’ll start being something we do often because it was a lot of fun! 😊

We headed home after and chatted with my sweet nieces before hitting the hay!

Saturday was my Dad’s day and the Mr and I headed over to his house early for some breakfast and to help with any last minute things!  My brother, SIL and sister and her family all came around noon!

My Grandma and Grandpa (aunt and uncle too) came for some lunch and to watch the Badger game!

I don’t get to Madison often or to see these ones much so I truly cherish the times we all see each other!

I mean… how cute is my Grandma?! Fun fact: I lived with my grandparents for the first two years of college 😊 something I’m so glad I was able to do!

My dad opened gifts, we sang happy birthday and enjoyed cake after lunch (and during half time of the game)!

And later in the evening, we enjoyed some adult games!

There were about 7 of us and we played The Game of Nasty Things! Such a fun (and a little dirty) game!

We headed home Sunday morning around 10 and were happy to lounge a little bit before a busy week!

And because I love sweets (and gave up candy for Lent) I did what any normal girl does after a busy weekend and 4.5 hour drive home – I made Rice Krispy Treats! I haven’t had these in forever (I always get them when I’m at Noodles & Co but it’s been a while) and seriously.. the majority of the pan is already gone.. whoops!

And we finished the weekend off with the start to a new book (me) and finishing up a few more episodes of some Breaking Bad! We just started season 4.. and I swear my heart stops .928 times every episode! 😂

Happy Monday – let’s hope next week it acts a little more like Saturday 😍

    Happy Birthday to your dad! That’s so sweet you got to live with your grandparents for a couple of years in college. My Mammaw lived on the next street from me growing up and then about 5 streets down from me in my teens plus she went on every vacation with us. I spent a lot of time there after school in college as well when I wasn’t working. It was the BEST! Such treasured moments. =))) PS – I spied your leopard print moccasins! Love them!
