Mickey D's Saves The Day!

While it sounds like most of you are enjoying a 3 day weekend, I am at work today :(
But that is ok. The stock market is closed so not much can truly be done.
Plus, I kind of had a 3 day weekend last weekend :)

Speaking of last weekend, on Friday I took the day off for a doctor appt and when I was finished I stopped for a solo lunch at Chick-fil-A.
Since we don't have one in the field I take full advantage of eating at my favorite fast food joint when I am near one :)

When I got back home I got to work on some of the painting projects we have left to do before we list our house for sale.
A favorite for me this week is how much better our front door looks painted white!
I can't believe we left it a creamy yellow for the last 9 years!
I forget to take a picture after the second coat of paint, but you get the idea.
After picking up X from daycare we got back to our typical Friday night and had our favorite pizza and watched Cars 2.

Technically I finished painting the front door on Saturday morning before we headed out to our neighbors house for a birthday party.
It was freezing for June 27th, but thankfully the rain stayed away during the party.

We headed home to take naps (or at least X did) before we went to our friend's house for an evening of chit chat and baby toes :)
 This little guy is just the cutest!
X's favorite moment of the night was getting to tickle Nico's toes :)

Sunday morning we woke up and X requested pancakes.
So I threw them together super fast and added some whip cream and a strawberry as a nose.
X loved his Mickey Mouse pancake as he described it :)
 Making that kid happy never gets old and is always a favorite :)

Sundays are meant for drives in my book!
It was one of my favorite things to do as a kid and still is!
We headed about an hour out of town and stopped at a Mexican joint for some lunch.
Since X was very good at lunch he was able to try out the grabber game thing.

I was skeptical, but it did say everyone is a winner. #yeahright
But it proved me wrong and X came away with a yellow bouncy ball :)
It still is his favorite toy at the moment since that ball was able to get in the bath tub with him!

On Tuesday I wrote about my favorite summer shoes and these babies were loved by many!
Good thing they are still available at Target!

We had a few errands to run, so when we finished we told X he could get some ice cream.
Unfortunately, our favorite shop was already closed for the evening :(
McDonald's and their 49 cent vanilla cone saved the day!

Now onto more pressing matters...
What are you making for your Fourth of July celebrations this weekend?

I have not one, not two, but three parties to added between Saturday and Sunday and I need some ideas!
I will narrow it down for you...I need desserts ideas!
Preferably simple and few ingredients, but at this point I don't really care since it is Friday and I still don't know what I am making!

Hope you all have a wonderful, yet safe weekend celebrating the good ole' USA!

Linking up today with the lovely ladies below.
