This weekend I got to enjoy spending time with my family so it was a win. It was a small family reunion with my cousins and my Aunt held at my brother’s house. The girls got to have fun and play together while the adults got to catch up. My brother and sister-in-law cooked some amazing food on the grill.
I also help a stray pit bull who happened to find it’s way to my brother’s driveway. I walked it a couple of house down to return it back home. Good dead done for the day. It was an all day event since I left home at 1pm and I didn’t really get home until 7:30pm so it was an early night for me. After taking Seamus for a walk I read for a bit before heading to bed.
Sunday was a really lazy day. I wasn’t feeling all that well and in between walks with Seamus and grocery shopping I took two naps. I also read a lot since I didn’t feel like moving much but it was really good so I didn’t mind.
After trying out some new recipes it was a blogging kinda night while watching Witches of East End. Here’s to hoping this week goes by quickly since I finally have a whole weekend at home next weekend.
How was your weekend?

Very nice!! Glad you helped the dog find
It’s home. Such beautiful weather here.
Goddess speed for a happy week!
Love, SMD’s Momma
He was so sweet and rolled right over for belly rubs. Glad you had great weather. Hope you have a great week!
the girls are so cute! I wish I was on a hammock. We need one in our “yard” hahaha
They are just so easy going and smiley. They melt my heart. Haha! I am with you, a hammock is a must, though space might be an issue.
Oh how I wish I was lying on a hammock! How fun!! Hope the week goes by fast for you!! Happy Monday.
That is the life! Wish every day could be like that one. Happy Monday!
Love the sweet photos with your nieces – so cute!! Hope your feeling better than yesterday!! Have a great Monday!
I am feeling better, thank you. They are so cute but it is a struggle to get them both to smile so I was glad to finally get a pic with them both smiling.
mmm cupcakes. lol. how is that book? i think i have heard of it before. now i want a hammock, lol. such cute photos!
It was really cute. I mentioned it before but just finally finished it. The hammock was so comfy and it was perfect weather for it.
What cute girlies! You must have had a blast with them. Love family weekends 🙂
Aren’t they too precious! It was good catching up with my cousins who I don’t get to see as often.
they are gorgeous!! nothing like a lil family time!
Thank you! They are quite adorable but I feel like they might be a handful when they get older.

A whole weekend at home next weekend? What is a whole weekend at home? Please remind me, I have forgotten. LOL. I’m looking forward to some homebound fall weekends after we knock out the last of our summer travel!
I’m glad you had a nice family day and helped that pit! You’re a good egg.
I know, I feel as if I have forgotten as well. A lot of naps, cleaning, and reading will hopefully happen. I need to dig into each room. So much travel and summer plans I am exhausted! The end is in sight, hold on a little longer!
I loved watching your family fun on IG, I hope you’re feeling better!
Thank you, I am feeling much better. They are just so sweet it is hard not to get as much time as I can with them.
I need to check out Witches of East End. Love reading in the hammock!
It is such a good show! I really need to think about getting a hammock for my place because it is the perfect spot.
That hammock looks amazing…I want one! And so nice that you helped that poor pit bull. Good deed for sure 🙂
Perfect place for lazy day reading. He was such a sweet heart so it was an easy decision.
Lazy Sundays are the best! Looks like a great weekend spending QT with your nieces!
Thank you. It was really nice getting to spend time with family.
Looks like you had a fun weekend with your family. Hate that you weren’t feeling good yesterday…hopefully you ar ebetter today!
Any book that has cupcakes on it is my kind of book 😉
Have a great week!
Thank you. Much better today. It even has recipes too in the book.
How fun! The girls are adorable!
Thank you. The little one is a spitfire but the smile gets you every time. The older one is such a sweetie and very girly.
Family time is always awesome, I’m sure it is even better when you are hanging out with those cutie nieces of yours!
They always make me laugh. The personalities on those two are lethal. My brother will have his hands full when they get older!

Good for you, helping the dog. Most people would have see a a pit bull and left it.
Weekends at home are amazing but it’s also great to visit with family and it looks like you had a good time.
I think volunteering at the shelter helped because I am much more aware of how to approach a dog and walking over a 100 different pits got rid of any ideas I had that they are all mostly friendly. This one was ready to run until I called him back and then he rolled over so I knew he was a softie!
I am looking forward to a weekend of nothing soon enough. My house needs some TLC. 😉

I love her eyes. WOW, those are some powerful eyes for a kid. Very deep! And the color is WOW.
Sorry… moving on. I love family time.. especially when it’s a decent group.. It’s great to get everyone together and just ENJOY each other.
🙂 Looks like an amazing weekend!
They are such a pretty green color. I’m a little jealous myself. It was great because I haven’t seen some of my cousins for a few months.
Sounds like a great weekend, I had some qt with my sister.. there is nothing like quality family time!
Quality time with family is so important and nice when you don’t get to see some of them often.
Heather @ My Little HEA says
Love when a family reunion, especially a mini one happens! Glad you were able to help that doggie back home!!!
It was so nice to catch up with them. He was such a sweetie and rolled on his back. Very friendly pup.
Leeann @ Join the Gossip says
Fun family time! Hanging out in a hammock during the summer? Sounds perfect!
Thanks for linking up. Here’s to a great week 🙂
I really need to get a hammock now for my house, it was so comfy!
Your nieces are so damn cute… those cheeks were made for kissin’ on!!!! 😀 I bet you’re an awesome Aunt!! 😀
They have the chubbiest cheeks I just want to pinch them. Awww thank you, I hope so.
Awe you’re the best walking that lost pup home! Good karma to the max, 🙂 And it looks like you had such a great time with the fam!
She was such a cute pup too and very gentle. Always great to spend time with them when I can.
Sounds like a good weekend!
It was a really good mix of fun and relaxing.
The girls are so cute! I love how close you are with your family and that you get to see them so often. I don’t get to see mine that often so I have gained a greater appreciation for when I do and love seeing families that get to spend a lot of time together.
Thank you. Yes I am only 30-45 minutes away so I can always drop by when needed. When I went away to college I vowed to stay close by once I graduated but I was lucky, sometimes life makes those choices for you and takes you farther away. Just cherish the moments you do get.
Good job for your good dead! Those kiddos look presh, and yay for family time!
She was so cute and gentle. Thank you. I get to baby-sit on Monday too so I am excited to get to spend even more time with them.
Aww super cute! Looks like a fabulous weekend 🙂
It was, thank you so much!
