Weekend Happenings: Busy House

Happy Monday everyone! Another weekend has flown by, but this coming weekend is the 4th of July, so I am eager to hop on and get this week moving along quickly. This past weekend was busy, but uneventful, if that makes sense. We had lots of things to do, but nothing ‘fun’ or ‘exciting’. At least exciting enough for blog world, that is.
First off, while in night class Wednesday night, I received a text from my husband. “Jackson is not kid dynamite, he’s kid haircut”. Followed by a picture of my sad looking baby with what appeared to be some sort of slight haircut? The following morning, I smoothed his side part to find the sides were short, and the center hadn’t been touched, resulted in a literal ‘V’ of his hair. HORRIBLE. I called Mike to tell him he was the worst hairstylist ever. In a fit of rage Thursday evening, while Mike was out at his grandparents farm, I let Jax finish his dinner, and because he seemed so content in his highchair, I pulled up Youtube and searched ‘how to cut baby hair’. Below is the end result. So happy, so sassy, and so, so big 🙁 
I think it is understood that the haircuts will be left to me from now on.
On Friday, I was off work around noon, and little man and I did our usual running of errands. I scored this portofino shirt at Express, where all clearance is an extra 30% off! Perfect for work, yet cool for summer. I also, by accident, stumbled across a pair of jeans that looked long and tried them on, and you guys, they were almost TOO LONG. And super super comfortable. And then I found out they shouldn’t have been on the clearance rack and were full price. Sigh, But, I got a coupon for $25 off, so I am pretty positive I will be going back to scoop these up. They are fantastic.
Friday night, daddy golfed, and mommy and baby got cleaned up, put on our jammies, and watched cartoons before crashing two seconds into our bedtime story. Sweet boy.

Loving ‘Cars’, but so so sleepy.
Saturday, we were up and at em bright and early to go and meet with a lumber company to look at floro plans. We have found a lot and location we LOVE, and are seriously considering making the next steps towards calling it ours. Which includes figuring out cost to build and a floor plan we like. The floor plan we have down. Cost to build..still trying to figure that out. We are still trucking away at the process though. It is excited and scary all at the same time!
The rest of Saturday was spent cleaning, cleaning, and cleaning. We threw some burgers on the grill and relaxed on the couch, and little man crashed in daddy’s arms watching Wallykazam. 

My boys, doing what they do best.
Sunday, I woke up to clean again (fun, I know). We had an open house, so we had to be out of there fairly early. We swung by Mike’s parents, where Jackson threw on his new swimsuit (how brilliant are those one piece rash guards!?), went for his first wagon ride, and played in the pool. 

Cousin Logan makes a great recliner, according to Jax.

We made it home late afternoon, and our entire house took a long and much needed nap. We whipped up some pasta salad for dinner, gave the munchkin a bath, and called it a night with everyone in bed by 8:30. Isn’t it funny how those summer days just suck all of your energy away??

Post bath snuggles and teeth brushing

More Wallykazam with dad. He is such a boy.
That was it for our weekend. Uneventful, but busy. Funny how that works, isn’t it? This week we officially say adios to June and hello to July, which is just CRAZY. The months seem to fly by faster and faster. I hope everyone has a great week!

Linking up with Meg, Biana, and Ashley today!
