While We Were Out... A Weekend Recap

This last weekend was a relaxed one.
Friday night me and the girls took M to his baseball game where him and his team pulled off their second win of the season. SO proud of him and his team they are 2-0 so far for the season! Go Cardinals!!!! :) 
Saturday morning the hubby was off to help the god father with some things so that meant I had the morning to start on house work and the never ending laundry.
The girls watched the new Hobbit movie while I cleaned (it kept them busy and out of my way)
M came back over later in the day to hang out and play with the girls and I finished up a few odd and ends at the house while we waited for the hubby to return.
Once M was on his way home with his mamma we ran out the door to run some errands and pick up a few things that were needed.
Boo had to have plastic eggs for school, and she still had birthday money burning a hole in her pocket (what can I say...she's a girl)
So off we went for some family time.
While we were out we decided to treat the kids to lunch/dinner out and stopped at Logan's for a bite to eat.
This is one of the hubby's faves and though it is usually expensive we were quite impressed with the fact that it actually cost less to eat there for a family of 5 then it does when we go to IHOP!
I was shocked, and the hubby was pleasantly surprised.
We always have great service there and the good is always delish!
My vegetarian was a wee worried pulling in since she was unsure what a roadhouse would offer her as a no meat eating teen...
After stuffing our bellies we were going to go home but we were all so full we just HAD to walk it off.
We decided we would run over to a local strip mall and walk away the 20 pounds we ate.
We LOVE this particular strip mall because of the stores it offers.
We ran into Kohl's while we were there (mainly because the 7 year old had to use the restroom) and came across a HUGE sale on small appliances.
They had them for 50% off... that's right 50%!
Me and the Hubby thought we had won the lottery! We have been looking into buying a blender for years and have been putting it off because well we are ummm cheap LOL (seriously we have not been wanting to spend that extra on one)
So we finally broke down and got a $40 blender for $20 bucks. We are very excited with all the things we can make with it this summer.
I am on the hunt for recipes for smoothies etc as we speak... so if you have one you'd like to share please let me know!
Saturday night we relaxed with a family bonfire and had a few drinks some great chats and of course our infamous Tracy joined in the fun. (everything is so lively when she is around :) ) It was a spur of the moment thing but we enjoyed it, our youngest almost fell asleep out there with us (she is her mothers child for sure)
It was a great way to spend a Saturday night!
Sunday was a lazy day with the rain and all that came in so we finished up things here at home, watched movies and I actually cooked a HUGE meal (a first in a LONG time)
Steak, mashed potatoes, corn, green beans, mac and cheese, shrimp, rolls, oranges, potato salad and macaroni salad was on the menu and it was a hit!
I was glad to be back into the kitchen somewhat but was NOT thrilled with the looks of the kitchen afterwards LOL
How was your weekend?
