Weekend Recap

Happy Monday!  Here's to an extra cup of coffee to get us going and have a great week!  We had a wonderful and productive weekend.  Even though I hate Mondays, I am loving seeing everyone's first day of school pictures and am looking forward to watching The Emmy's tonight.  I'm making "That's a Wrap" Lettuce Wraps tonight in honor. 


We are so predictable and ordered pizza for an easy dinner followed by some binge watching of Orange is the New Black before passing out from the long week.  We finished Season 1 and are now a few episodes into Season 2. 


Jack had his last summer session of Little Gym.  He was so cute and it's amazing to see what a difference the classes have made for him.  His confidence level has sky-rocketed.  Our shy little boy was all over the place on Saturday - everyone but next to his parents!

We had a marathon grocery shopping trip, a nap and then Jason and I left Jack with "Pops and KK" so we could have a date night dinner at Ciao Bello for Houston Restaurant Weeks

The meal was fantastic, but having alone time with Jason was even better.  I've now had three Houston Restaurant Week meals - RDG, Cook & Collins and Ciao Bello.  I say that is pretty good for a busy mama!
I wore my Madewell Animal Print Shift Dress, Tory Burch Reva clutch and Stella & Dot Rebel Pendant.  Sorry for the terrible bathroom mirror selfie.  I was trying to hurry and take it before someone else walked in!


We headed out for church, backpack in tow for the "Blessing of the Backpacks" during the service since school starts today for most everyone in our area.  Jack won't start school until next year, but we still brought his super cute backpack from Two Magnolia Lane.  Jack looked precious sitting up with all of the older kiddos and all of the backpacks. 

After church we had lunch with "Mimi and Papi" and my grandmother Grammy, who we have no nicknamed InstaGrammy. 

Afterwards, I ran a few errands while Jason stayed home with Jack.  When I came home just 2 hours later Jason had completely cleaned out and reorganized his side of the closet.  It looked so great so it inspired me to do the same!  I need to take pictures and write an entire post on this, but needless to say I was up past midnight working on my side which still isn't done!

I hope you all have a Happy Monday!
