Friday night I got together with these lovely ladies for a kid-free girl night:
(well except for Poppy of course, you can see the top of her tiny head that was cut off).
(We wound up talking about our kids/future kids the whole time...go figure.)
Which means that these guys had bro-night: 
(aren't they cute?)
 Saturday morning the Carter's came over for playtime and coffee.
We had a nice Chipotle lunch afterwards.
I used my new washi tape on three different projects...
(When I said I wanted some washi tape over a year ago, Chris thought I was nuts for spending that much on tape that had no real purpose. I could never really justify it so I never bought it. I happened to come across some for super cheap and grabbed it for Chris to "put in my stocking" this year and I'd say I've already gotten my money's worth out of it!)

I repaired Bennett's beloved Dr. Seuss's ABC's:
(note that my finger nails are painted even a different color...I'm getting used to this girly stuff!)
I used it to attatch a giant cookie to my nephew's birthday present:
and I used it to finally make Bennett's long-awaited journal:
(I have been writing him notes since I found out I was pregnant with him but they were never in anything now everthing is in one place and it will be easy for me to add more!)
 I really want to get another roll so I can make a journal for little brother that doesn't look exactly like Bennett's.
(Look at how cute all of these patterns are!)
(It's also the same pace I got my small stamp set from...I still love it and use it all the time.)

Anyways, back to our weekend...

Saturday evening we went to my nephew's 6th birthday party at a party place with a ton of different bounce houses.
B loved it, though he doesn't really know "big boy party" ettiquite yet.
He partially opened one of Luke's presents and he kept trying to escape to go bounce more when he got bored in the party room. I don't blame him.
 Afterwards, we went over to my sister and bro-inlaw's house for dinner and a little extra celebrating.
Chris tested out drinking glasses:
 Chris played at church Sunday so we had a day of just hanging out with nothing much to do.

We took my week 22 picture:
Ember discovered the shelf that popped out last week:
 and when Chris got home we played and read books and relaxed some more
 before we all headed out to church together:

 After church we stopped at two different stores to buy bananas to no avail:
(our family should really buy stock in bananas...and peanut butter.)
So that's where we are headed right now. Pray that they have been restocked!

Happy Monday!

    I like to read your weekends in review :)
    You're such a creative person I think and Bennett is always so cute! It's great that you have these "family trips".
    Hope you understand what I mean, my english isn't that fabulous :D

    Ooo I love the journal you're making for Bennett! I did the same thing for LeAndre as a wedding present while we were engaged. It was so fun to write and to give!
    I got my stamp set from etsy but I think we have the same one! I love the wood box it comes in to keep them neat and clean!

    No bananas! That's crazy! Hope you found some today! Love the little journal for B!

    I love the journal and I now think every present should come with a big cookie.

    This is going to be a weird comment: stock up on peanut butter! Seriously, I heard on NPR that there was a bad peanut crop and prices are going to skyrocket!
