What's Up Weekend

What’s Up Weekend 5.4.18

Happy Friday! Happy May the 4th Be With You day! I’m not a huge Star Wars fan, but I appreciate a good pun! Anyway, it’s been quite the week, with the early shift at work and everything else, but now it’s Friday and there was rejoicing in all the land! As usual I’m here with my ladies Charlotte and Lindsay to look back at the good stuff of the week in our What’s Up Weekend weekly link up. Let’s take a look at what I am grateful for/made me happy this week!

(1) My spaghetti cheese loving monster at his school fundraiser last week. He was SO into his dinner he had cheese on his nose. I just couldn’t help but laugh.

(2) Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. I’ve been up early enough to see the sunrise all week and it made my early mornings a little more bearable. And we’ve had some pretty amazing sunsets this week as well. I love spring!

(3) My favorite baking buddy helping me make cookies. He loves to bake so much and it just warms my heart.

(4) A nice conversation with my husband at our date night at home on Monday while enjoying sushi and sake.

(5) Catching up with my college roommate after not seeing her for many years. We discovered we now live within a mile of one another and finally got together for dinner and drinks last night to catch up. And we talked for three hours without realizing it. Friends like this are so good for the soul and I’m so happy to have her back in my life again.

(6) Stopping at the library with Ollie on the way home one day this week and finding books he was really excited about.

(7) This amazing painting we took home from the school auction. It’s a portrait of Como Zoo in St. Paul which is where Nate and I got engaged and it’s always been a special place to us. Thanks to some help from our parents we were the high bid and able to take this home with us. It makes me smile.

(8) Sleeping with the window open and getting fresh air at night. And snuggling under the covers when it gets a little chilly.

(9) Spending lots of time outside this week, even if my allergies haven’t been loving it. Yay Claritin!

(10) My awesome husband for being awesome and going with the flow when our schedule is disrupted the way it was this week. He just steps up and takes care of things and I love him for it.

This weekend is going to be a little busy, I have my first ever vendor event with KEEP tomorrow and Sunday Nate’s going to smoke some meats in his smoker and have his family over for dinner. So it might get a little crazy but I think it will all be fun. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend as well! Be sure to check out the other posts below and feel free to add your own!

  1. Aww, I love the painting and how sweet that it will be a reminder of such a special memory! Jona loves to bake with me too–I’ve spoiled the kid so much, we do it just about every weekend. (Mostly to feed his mother’s sweet tooth…)

  2. How exciting you were the highest bid for the painting, especially since it has a great memory. I’m glad you had a nice week, despite having to work really early. It sounds like you have a fun weekend planned – I hope your first vendor event goes well. 🙂

  3. Yesterday’s pun was fun. And you, my dear, are living the life! A cute boy with cheese on his nose and a husband who not only brews his own beer but smokes meat?!! Hang on to that guy!

  4. Sunrises and sunsets are the best. Catching up with friends is always great. I really like the painting.

  5. Sounds like you had a wonderful week. Glad you could get the painting at the auction – especially as it is extra special to you and Nate.

  6. Aww I just love Ollie’s happy, smiling face. 🙂
    You and I both love our sunrises and sunsets, eh? Spring sure is especially beautiful for them I find.
    Horribly, horribly behind. Sorry to hear to you didn’t make any sales at your KEEP Weekend thing, but you know what? That’s just experience for you under your belt, love. Keep at her. I love the bracelets, I just haven’t committed or looked hard enough to be honest with you.
    Love that Nate gets so many nods and love on your blog. 😉

    Hope you’ve had an awesome weekend love! Happy almost Friday! xoxo
