(We will now be cheering on the Cubs in the World Series, though this will be very confusing to the kids. Who keep saying, "Go Dodgers!" no matter what.)
I got to have lunch with both girls and managed to snag a pic with this one! People have really started to say that we look alike, and isn't it funny - I can't see it at all! I also have a hard time seeing that I look like my mother. I think it is all too close to me, but both feel like a compliment, so I'll take it. 😜
Friday was my sweet friend Courtney's birthday, and her hubby planned a surprise party for her. We got to help coordinate it and be in on the whole surprise, which was a ton of fun/nerve-wracking that we might wreck the whole thing. But - we didn't, and it all turned out to be so much fun + she was super surprised! She blogged about it here, if you want to see more pics.
As a double bonus, we got a sneak peak at the current Miss America, who was our Miss Arkansas this year! Court and I got to see her compete this summer, so it was fun to see her again and then sneak a pic on the red carpet.
Other weekend highlights included lunch at CFA with Daddy after he worked a long morning at Race for the Cure.
Continuing to potty train twins, which I am still doing very half-heartedly with very half-hearted results.
Hitting up the Fall Festival at our elementary school.
Enjoying some downtime as a family in the beautiful weather!
Now that the kiddos are all in school, I am coming to really appreciate just how precious our time together on the weekends is. I am trying to find the balance between my tendency towards maximization (i.e. - let's do every.single.possible. fun thing we can find) vs. chill time. Thankfully, John is a good balance for me in this area, and we are working together to get it right. And failing at least half the time, but at least we are trying!
